Re: Great Farage Demolition Job

FARAGE NAMED ‘MAN OF THE YEAR’ The Times has named Nigel Farage its man of the year. Explaining its controversial choice, the newspaper says 2014 has been “a stellar year for Ukip and its leader”. It adds: “After more than two decades on the fringes, the party has finally bulldozed its way into the...

Re: Great Farage Demolition Job

Ukip councillor Rozanne Duncan expelled for 'jaw-dropping' comments.
I look forward to finding out what those comments were.

Re: Great Farage Demolition Job

UKIP election candidate Kerry Smith blames homophobic and racist comments on "stress and taking strong painkillers". Really? A Ukip candidate has resigned for describing gay people as “fucking disgusting old poofters” and referring to a woman with a Chinese name as a “chinky”, just hours after Ukip ...

"Quantum Neurology."

Not something I think I've come across before, but that "Quantum" word seems to set alarm bells ringing these days. Anyway, Steven Novella wrote about it yesterday in SBM. Quantum Neurology displays all the features of pseudoscience – its practitioners use jargon to dress up superstitious pre-scient...

Re: Great Farage Demolition Job

More strong reaction to Nigel Farage’s decision to ally with a far-right party in the EU.

Re: Spontaneous Baby Combustion.

Well, would you Adam and Eve it? :-o
Doctors in India have ruled out ‘spontaneous human combustion’ (SHC) after a baby boy apparently burst into flames for a fourth time.

Re: Wikipedia 24 hours Black-out - Read why

Both SOPA and PIPA are postponed, apparently.
Both SOPA and PIPA have been shelved, and “no further action” will be taken until a general consensus has been made, and compromises sought.

Spontaneous Baby Combustion.

This is a couple of days old. Steven Novella on a recent case of "SHC". News reports are coming out of India of a “rare medical case” involving a newborn infant who apparently spontaneously bursts into flames. This has occurred four times so far. The baby is now in the hospital being treated for the...

Re: Labour leadership

Off on a bit of a tangent, but the new Shadow Chancellor has also promoted homeopathy in the past. Jeremy Corbyn has previously signed parliamentary motions and tweeted his backing for homeopathic treatment, while shadow chancellor John McDonnell has held events in parliament for homeopathic practit...

This seems to be the original SOPA bill, for anyone who wants to wade through it.

Re: Labour leadership

Well, Corbyn's "Honeymoon period" hasn't lasted long, not that the UK press was ever likely to grant him one. I came across this open letter last night, criticising Corbyn's support for homeopathy. http://bigthink.com/neurobonkers/an-open-letter-to-jeremy-corbyn-why-i-cant-take-a-believer-of-homeopa...

Looks like there is some "re-thinking" going on.

So... How did you vote Binde?
I voted for the one who'll probably come second.
