Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Didn't you think about a little civil war? It would lower the pressure a bit.

Sheep should be eaten and turned into pullovers, not voting. 
What's the difference?

Re: Time for BREXIT FAQ

But I'm not sure where the fox hunt comes in. I don't know the Scottish or Northern Irish views on hunting but I do know that our continental friends like nothing better than to go into the woods to kill innocent animals. If they are Germans then they are usually naked. True, ze Germans like going ...

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

It's not English.  The war is not between the UK and the rest of the world. It's  Leavers vs Remainer or lawyers, journalists and academics vs plumbers, electricians, mechanics and farmers. My plumber likes prosecco. It's clearly a war between England and the rest of the UK. Definitely not. Ze Gema...

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

It has become so unpleasant that we could end up with Leavers boycotting Remainer businesses and vice versa. I'll boycott lawyers, journalists, academics, Prosecco and foie gras, etc.  
What's wrong with Prosecco?

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I believe the word is "optics." (Another word we've got from the Yanks recently. To me an optic is a non-drip spirit measure you attach to a bottle of gin.)  You want to see someone who isn't biased. You won't like the example but we have Nigel Farage. People say that he's on the EU gravy...

"Socialism is a rich tradition of political thought and practice, the history of which contains a vast number of views and theories, often differing in many of their conceptual, empirical, and normative commitments. Oh yes, there are many theories, building cathedrals of words is easy. And wha...
