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

I have no issues in co-operation, no issues in trade and easy accesses, or living and working etc. Passport controls and work visas please. It's the Tory governments that are to blame for the mess we're in. We do have full passport controls. We are not members of the Schengen area. So only eligible...

Hmm.
Long service in the military or the police or even Govt. is not a total guarantee of patriotism.
IMHO.

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

May I just say that I am sure Mickf is lover of the UK. I would say he loves it profoundly. The tragedy for me is that some of this love does not extend over the Channel. For there is much good (and some bad) on both sides. We will be stronger in the coming years if we remain closely affiliated with...

Re: Fungi identification

I once found a hoard of Penny Buns quite similar to the upthread pictured ones in Wales. We harvested a couple of full sized bags full and dried most of them. Lasted couple of years. It was after one of the dry summers in the 80's. Secret places! However upon rejoining the footpath nearby voices wer...

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

Reform our parliamentary system for a start. Composition, boundaries, elected second chamber, smaller. It's clearly not fit for purpose. Al How,without a revolution,do you propose that we go about it? That's a very serious and straight question Have a long serious national debate, come up with vari...

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

.....You and I were given a black and white question. I answered Leave. On a (50?) shades of grey/multi facetted Brexit problem that I suspect you knew nothing of, only that you didn't like the EU. Yes, same as countless millions of us - on both sides of the fence. Are you suggesting that only the ...

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

As far as I am aware MickF has never tried to give detailed reasons for why he feels the way he does about EU membership. I agree that an emotional decision will be influenced and determined by external factors, but you have jumped from that to inferring that those factors are the negative reportin...

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

It seems to me that the reasons for MickF's wanting to leave the EU are, for want of better words, 'emotional' as opposed to 'rational'. It's tempting to dismiss a choice made on emotional grounds rather than rational ones, but often the biggest decisions of our lives are emotional choices rather t...

Re: Speaker of the House!

This is a speaker who has resisted some of the things the Tory government wanted. By doing so he's got himself disliked and distrusted by the far right of the party. Minority government, only very recently as 'Strong and Stable' pointed out they'd won more votes than labour and had a small majority...

Re: Speaker of the House!

^^ tangled.
I agree.
It is the Tories that have moved to the right not Bercow moving left!

I disagree with Ben upthread.
Brecow has been a true defender of Parliament.
That is his role.

Re: Fungi identification

I'd go for a young Parasol: Macrolepiota procera or M. rhacodes . Difficult to be sure until the cap is more open - or if it's found growing with other more mature specimens. When I saw the pic I also thought Parasol. (But wasnt brave enough to guess/commit) The thick stem ring is I think visible. ...

Re: Fungi identification

Often risky to give ID by photo only. Habitat is often a factor. Initially for example I thought your big brown one could be something very delicious but the gills alone betray it as something much less interesting. Found Amanita Muscaria yest. Beautiful but not edible I hasten to add. And a nice Bi...

Well actually he did bend over many times to the remainers, though I doubt he was forced...blah blah very naughty. Again translates as did not do what YOU wanted..... Which translates as proof that the raging petulant remainer John Bercow in a position of unbiased authority is not fit for purpose w...

He was involved in a tiny plane air crash so that didn't work out too well.

It certainly could have worked out better! :twisted:

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

The only decent act that Bercow has performed is to declare his resignation. He is a complete disgrace to the title of "Speaker of the House of Commons". He broke the cardinal rule of being none biased and manipulated the Brexit debate for his own dubious ends. The sycophantic fawning for...
