Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Bit of a tangent but I’ve recently been really shocked about how widespread Brexit is known about. I’m drifting round Peru/Bolivia/Chile at the moment and end-up talking to anybody. And many locals once they’ve found I’m from the UK raise their eyes and say “Brexit”. Really brought home to me yester...

Re: Cameras on tour

... First decide the essential features, then the sensor size, then fixed or interchangeable lens. The features are whatever you want, 4K and Wi-fi are fun but I'm not sure I'd put them on my essentials list.... And double check how those features are implemented. For example, the Sony RX-100m6 I’v...

Re: Cameras on tour

How much does it cost please? Think of a number with lots of zeros and no decimal points. Real answer, almost £1200! There are cheaper RX100's (older versions which Sony still produces as they are cheaper and have more limited functionality). The important thing about the m5 (VI) is the zoom range ...

Re: Cameras on tour

In the "fabulously expensive" category (confession from me here), have a look at the Sony RX100m6 (sometimes written as DSC-RX100 VI). Exceptionally small and light, incredible zoom range, 1" sensor (20 mega pixels), everything on camera you'd expect from top of the range (HDR, panor...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Interesting take on May's claims that her deal "Is the best deal" because she is also claiming "it's the only deal". And if it's "the only deal" then by definition it must also be the worst deal (when you have only one it is both the best and worst just as a one person ...

Re: Cameras on tour

Next year I intend to make a better effort capturing and documenting my tours - both in terms of filming and photography. If only as something to show the grandkids. What's put me off doing this before - other than the high cost of camera equipment - is carrying all the gear. I'm wondering what sol...

Re: New Route Planner

Good idea. It's fairly rudimentary - basically a text search on the description provided by the accommodation, partly automated but mostly me manually combing the descriptions! booking.com have recently neutered the feed they provide to all but the biggest third-party affiliates, sadly, so it's bec...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I have a bad feeling about this.. Mostly because of what occurred on Sunday. This Brexit deal has pretty much gone through on the nod with the EU27, with little, if any in the way of resistance. Why? One reason could be they've offered such a lean, wafer thin deal ('take it or leave it, its the onl...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I find it ironic that May and her cabinet are taking her deal out to convince the public of its merits but adamantly refuse to give the public any say in accepting or rejecting it. Reports seem to suggest May is wanting the public to lobby their MPs to get them to accept the deal. My own MP (safe se...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Sorry Bovmolov I disagree with you. May is totally evil and is hell bent on destroying the country for her political beliefs...... I think May's only political belief is that she should be in charge (Conservative Party Leader). Her beliefs will change to anything within seconds to avoid her losing ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Maybe we need to wake up to the possibility that there will be no deal re the EU that will be any good and might as well bite the bullet. I agree that we might as well bite the bullet - and withdraw our Article 50 notice and remain in the EU because membership is clearly better than any trade deal ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Mrs Mays main fault is she isnt a visionary, just a plodder and the EU have played her? May could hardly have done a worse job. She submitted Article 50 without having a plan ready. She drew a load of arbitrary red lines, interpreting the vote to be something that was neither written on the ballot ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

.... most people thought that Brexit deal was a trade deal?.... Never was going to be a Trade Deal. EU rules always meant these Article 50 negotiations could not be a Trade Deal. EU rules are clear that a member state cannot negotiate trade deals (and the UK is still a member state). Those who thou...
