    I re-read my comment and Tinks was right - I was trying to chill out LiS by pointing out that the UK would be OK, whatever happens. The country will not go into economic meltdown. However, it did...

    I never said anyone should suck it up (don't forget that my entire family lives in the UK, and they are not exactly prospering) - indeed, my point is that austerity should be fought absolutely...

    Vote for common sense - get crushed into the dirt by the pig ignorant. It's the EU way ;)

  7. I'm a big believer in education at all levels - I...

    I'm a big believer in education at all levels - I also understand that Tory governments generally do not give a shit. It is up to the British voters to challenge that.

    Democracy is democracy - if...
  8. If the UK votes Tory, then you will get Tories -...

    If the UK votes Tory, then you will get Tories - that, surely, is what they people want. I detest Tories, will vote against them, and will fight them as much as I can, but that's democracy. It...

    And my contacts in academia do not share your take on the world - they are still planning ahead with universities inside and outside the EU. They would like more of an idea what is happening, and a...
  10. Again, once the uncertainty is over, things will...

    Again, once the uncertainty is over, things will start smoothing out. That's the feedback I am getting from folks, anyway - especially with respect to grant applications. The same with academia as...
  11. Must have - that would explain it :D

    Must have - that would explain it :D
  12. I was never a fan of Starmer's tests - they are...

    I was never a fan of Starmer's tests - they are almost impossible demands that pretty much mean remain or Brexit in name only. He is going to have to give up some ground on those, I feel - especially...

    Not into Sparta - we only gather the military forces when we visit Athens to teach those uppity, soft city folk a lesson!

    Just a mundane day buying vegetables and stocking up on cat food. Mind...

    I fully appreciate the work the mods do - I have moderated forums before and have no desire to do so again! It's a thankless job, sometimes, and I have no issues with modding last night.

    Just one...
  15. I was being pretty specific with my point to LiS,...

    I was being pretty specific with my point to LiS, noting that academia would not be directly affected by Brexit - that's the impression I get from clients and contacts, anyway, after the initial...

    Was up early, PPC - had to pop into Sparta for some shopping!

    That's the crux of the matter, for me. The problem is that there is no majority amongst the Brits for remaining in the EU if it does...
  17. Exactly - and, as a Leaver, I have just as much...

    Exactly - and, as a Leaver, I have just as much distaste as you for Mogg et al.

    That's the problem, though - the vocal extremes are the ones framing the debate and causing friction.

    The Indy...
  18. I'm sure you will be fine - a good deal would...

    I'm sure you will be fine - a good deal would certainly be preferable, but I doubt that you are going to see the country go into an economic death spiral.

    Why will science and academia suffer? I...

    Fully agree - also with your earlier point about free movement.

    Common sense and finding areas of agreement would help - the problem is that, as with so many political arguments, it is difficult...
  20. That's where I think that good politics is needed...

    That's where I think that good politics is needed - I actually think that they could sell an EFTA-type deal if it had some concessions on restricting free movement. IMO, most Labour voters of either...
  21. You would have to hope that parliament would hold...

    You would have to hope that parliament would hold the ERG's trade ideas up, or that you vote in a new government.

    Again, don't forget that the EU appears equally determined to bring in such...
  22. Horsey Stuff - Britain Win Eventing Gold

    The missus is horse mad, so we have been following the Equestrian World Championships.

    Haven't seen much coverage in the news, but Great Britain won the eventing team gold, and Ros Carter the...

    Definitely a lot of games being played, and the rhetoric coming from the US is worrying.

    It has been discussed a lot here, mainly from the Erdogan angle (he is trying to play the two sides against...
