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

Some of the other questions asked were daft. E.g. " Do you think Brexit will be good, bad or make no difference to each the following? " - Ian What i thought was daft about that particular question, was the incredulous daftness of the third who replied Brexit won't make no difference, whe...

Re: Turkish Moral High Ground over the Saudis

Yes, Erdogan must find it very nice to have a regime to look down on. I've never tried doing it, but it would be interesting to rank states according to Human Rights. The murdering thugs of the Saud family must be near the very bottom, the Turks not great but definitely a few steps up from that roc...

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

Blessed be the moderators, for they shall inherit the web. Back on topic, the florid insanity catalysed by Brexit has been bursting into glorious flower these past 24 hours. Firstly, it turns out, quite incredibly, that fully 73% of voters for the Conservative and Unionist party think it's worth sa...

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

#yawwwwwn…. That's quite an argument. Who said age does not necessarily bring wisdom. Think again! If it's any help........it is a mistake to believe that a political position is formed from a careful consideration of the facts, or results from a logical analysis of the situation or by some process...

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

Doom! Doom! Doom! We're all doomed! No....I don't think that we're all doomed....as there are some of us who have insulated themselves quite nicely from the consequences by being rich or by moving their business interests abroad. It is those people who were uninformed enough to be influenced by the...

Some historian would come on and correct me I'm sure. I don't think that Scotland have ever had their own currency...................................................... I'm no historian but before the Act of Union in 1707 the "Merk" was the unit of currency in Scotland. https://www.google...

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

The stand out guy that intimated this to me owns a chain of hotels situated all over Scotland, presently acquiring and building hotels in England. Al As you said though it's not a problem since HQ's are usually relatively poorly staffed. It's not like he can move his hotel staff to England. For the...

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

The SNP? They just hate Westminster and many do actually hate the English Establishment and thats what its all about. After all they have long had many of their own institutions like the law etc and want to run their own affairs. Most of my pals up there believe that Scotland is much better off in ...

Re: Brooks Honey Proofide disaster - any chemists here?

When Brooks was owned by Brooks, their original advice to owners was that Proofide was never to be applied to the underside of the saddle, this was because it may cause the leather to become too soft and cause some distortion. When applied to the top, which has been pressure rolled resulting in the...

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

I agree. Although having more control over this (and fishing) is, to my mind, one of the few potential benefits of leaving the EU. The government seem to be doing **** all with it. They should at least have some proposals under discussion by now. Please be reassured....the UK Government will use ou...
