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

For every person who claims the BBC has a 'left' bias there's somebody to say they have a 'right' bias which probably means they're slap bang in the middle. All talk about them being pro-leave and pro-Tory is utter twaddle so just suck it up.

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

The BBC headlined the rise in Sterling after the exit poll was published as "a surge". It went up a couple (3 for a while) of points. Now it has fallen back to almost pre election levels against many currencies. But there's no mention of it on the BBC Well I heard it on the BBC earlier to...

Re: Winter depression

I had a work colleague with SAD and he found the post-Christmas period especially difficult. Whereas I'd take great delight in noticing the days growing longer in January his head would be in a bucket until when the clocks went forward in late March. Unfortunately he wasn't one for exercise which is...

Re: The next Labour Leader

I fear for Labour and reckon they'll have two leaders between now and the 2024 GE. if the second one is Andy Burnham then there is hope for the future. Yes, I do know that Andy Burnham is currently mayor of Greater Manchester but he needs to be brought back into the fold and yes I do know that his f...

Re: Why Couldnt the Red Brick Wall stand Corbyn?

Corbyn for labour was the equivalent of putting Rees-Mogg in charge of the Tories. They'd have been eviscerated. Corbyn, for anyone outside of his immediate fan club, was obviously utterly inadequate to the task from the very start. Treating the loss in 2017 as a famous victory sealed Labour's fate...

Re: Cycling Time Trials - Red Lights are now compulsory

My interpretation would be that 'clearly visible' refers to the position of the light and that nothing is obscuring it, so as long as a working red rear light is there I would allow a rider to start. The start timekeeper has enough to do without measuring the brightness of the light.
