    Re: The UK Brexit vote to leave the EU

    A thought from last summer: Dominic Cummings, from a mining family of Durham, famous for explaining how the Tories couldn’t give a toss for people like himself, is clearly a traitor to his own and...

    This may be my last word on this matter, posted on the other thread:
  4. Re: UK Election... 12 Dec 2019 Corbyn Boris or Libs

    The latest polls predicted a possible hung parliament with highly organized tactical voting expected to be hugely effective.
    How to turn this into a Tory landslide ? Easy peasy.

    You conduct exit...

    Re: The UK Brexit vote to leave the EU

    No misunderstanding : I am speaking to a wider audience. I have no vote on this beyond the odd post on this forum, where it is often said that this is a planet of choice. A metaphysical statement...

    Re: The UK Brexit vote to leave the EU

    I have to say I warmed to Corbyn --he is for the vunerable--genuinely cares I would say.
    Better PM material than Boris I would say--but can we afford either of them?

    Re: The UK Brexit vote to leave the EU

    It is good to see Longjohn and ICHingUChing expanding on points I made earlier in the thread.
    But mention of Facebook gives me a segue to a real eye-opener seen only yesterday, and which goes a long...

    Re: The UK Brexit vote to leave the EU

    I don’t have a personal interest in UK politics, but in more general terms, I do want to take a little further the idea of how making choices can refine our instincts, working from a real-life...

    The other idea is based on the ‘many worlds’ theory of an infinity of parallel universes being created every time we make a choice: the choice we don’t make here is taken and explored in this...

    Re: The UK Brexit vote to leave the EU

    This excellent interview comes as a necessary response to my last post, thank you Bill. Man is facing extinction, yes, but while there’s life there’s hope.

    Re: The UK Brexit vote to leave the EU

    I have to confess that my natural optimism may have been getting in the way of what I am trying to say about Brexit. At the end of his life (he died in 1961), CG Jung was extremely pessimistic and...

    As I said earlier, this is not about you and me: neither is it about Macron or other such individuals. Macron wants no more extensions: he is going to be overruled. If you are going to talk about the...

    Re: The UK Brexit vote to leave the EU

    The notion of the EU as lobster-pot is a massive oversimplification and too Manichean to bear serious scrutiny. If you insist on using Icke’s formula, it works both ways, and in more ways than one: ...

    I mentioned earlier the need to give pro-Brexit conspiracy theories a rest. What we have here is the potential for the Tory gang being hoist by their own petard. If conspiracy is collusion among...
