    your electoral system is much better than ours Only in that ours appears better able to accommodate a 3rd national (by nation I mean a country which is a member of the UN in its own right) party and regional...

    IQ is an abbreviation of "intelligence quotient" which is an abstract measurement and bears no direct relationship to the ability to apply knowledge to real world discussions I think?...
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    Well, FWI Corwin has called for a formal vote of no confidence in the government. My main issue with this is that I have no confidence in either the Con Party or Liebour. In fact the largest party in the...

    Er, you missed "Violate the Scotland Act" (in a number of ways; the first that springs to mind is stripping the Scots Parliament of its powers over fisheries)....

    I've pretty much given up on responding to SleepingRoutine because hir standard response seems to be "Your education is different to mine. Your education is wrong"....
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    OK, I don't have an on-line cite but I've heard several personal accounts (from independent of each other sources) that have a timeline similar to:- 1) Chamberlain makes "I have a piece of paper" speech at Croydon. 2) He returns...

    Let me point out the logical fallacy in pretty much all your posts that refer to "population growth". There is no such thing! To achieve population growth you require to have more births than deaths, and, in a war, pretty...

    Explain to me how the Wall Street Crash (bursting of a stock market bubble) was caused by political dogma in the USA. The explain how the (US) Dust Bowl (change of short term climate) was caused by political dogma....

    I don't understand your point. Mine was that the Engl, er "British" BC has been getting names, including misuse of the offending definite article you referenced, wrong since the 1920s....

    First define "poverty". I'll suggest "being unable to afford to buy/grow enough food to live on, plus accommodation and power". By that measure, poverty is certainly rising in the UK. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trussell_Trust...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Greg at #1266 - "Heavy hauler" in UK (I think Europe-wide) has a general meaning which requires the load to be outside railway loading gauge in height and/or width. It also usually refers to under 1% of LGV usage, and...

    I can't speak for "all nations", but that is total nonsense as applied to the UK. Here vehicle users pay more in vehicle use taxes than is spent on road construction and maintenance, but the roads (other than where vulnerable...

    Good luck making that "fly" outside urban areas; for instance I'd guess anywhere In Northern Territory not called Cairns or Darwin, or Western Australia not called Perth (I know the reaction when council refused to build a bypass to get...

    Some of the work done in the US "X-Plane" programme suggests that ducted fans actually have a better thrust to mass ratio than plain ones, and materials technology has improved meaning that we could make the shrouds lighter now....

    Yeah, well, it's because of that missing prefix... A mobility scooter would be about enough to get me to the nearest pub and the local bank but would turn a 9 hour day + commute into a 15 hour if...

    I can't guarantee if April is the full Summer timetable or the "Summer shoulder", but I think I've covered most of the main possibilities. Just plan on travelling South to North on islands!...

    OK, CalMac will sell you a variety of "Island Rover" tickets, and at least some days, on the Summer timetable, you can go Ardrossan-Brodick, ride round Arran to Lochranza, ferry over to Claonaig, cycle to Kennacraig, ferry to Islay (possibly...

    The comment about the false floor was because the cargo space in my car is bigger than it looks at a glance. Note the trim level endorsement; not all trims of my model have the false floor. Also, it's 4...

    OK thanks. Part of my dislike of SUVs (general, but coilies that never see more "off-road" than 2 wheels up a kerb are included) is the block to my extended sightline, which can go out to a mile or more....
