Re: Time for BREXIT FAQ

I thought it odd that the Brexit Party has been abbreviated to BXP. A bit too close for comfort. Having attended events with Cons, Libs, Lab, Ukip and BXP I can say that BXP is easily the most diverse. In terms of racial background, jobs, sexuality. Ukip was pretty close, especially diverse sexualit...

Looks like the Brexit Party is a stable attractor.

Re: Time for BREXIT FAQ

Conservative MPs are quitting to join Lib Dems.

Lib Dem members are leaving LDs because of the above.

Labour voters are turning to the Conservatives and LDs.

Conservative voters are turning to the Brexit Party.

It’s like a 1970s wife-swapping party.

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

I thought about this before posting. Admittedly not too long since I find logic physically painful. My conclusion was that since I made no explicit assumption about whether I was right or wrong I was safe. But I could be wrong!

Re: Stupid question of the day

"Oh look, it's Ricardo Montalban," I say during Spy Kids 2. Why did I say that? How do I know who he is? Wikipedia says he's been in loads of movies. I've probably seen two. And Fantasy Island. But that's no reason to know his name. I don't know the names of anyone in The Love Boat.

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

Some things are better now. Some were better then. Simples!

I'm not one for black and white thinking in real life. But if someone confidently says "Black, without a doubt" then I will have the knee-jerk reaction "You are soooo wrong, it is white." Can't help it.

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

I find it odd that those people who say things are getting worse because of climate change, population growth, plastic in the ocean, are the same people who laugh when others say that some things were better in the past. But then there are very large sections of society who don’t think very deeply, ...

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

My local MP, a Conservative, is brilliant. He is about 12 years old, and hasn’t once tweeted about Brexit. He’ll probably be the last man standing.

There's contempt for the court and then there's contempt for the people.
