    Of course, Cath carefully disregards the cruel, oppressed, downtrodden & exploited nature of those two non-EU countries of Norway & Switzerland ... Oh the terrible oppression of the peoples in those states is such a dreadful example of what being...

    JG @ 159 SECONDED!...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    Your second paragraph is entirely true, I agree with it 100%. Slight problem - equally 100% irrelevant to what we are discussing - oops. I'm am horribly afraid that most of your second paragraph is also correct, though I do...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    UKIP will almost certainly take Labour seats, as well as tory ones - the recent bye-election in Manchester gave them a really nasty fright. Good. However, even with massive SNP representation, I would imagine that a lot of the "Devo-Max"...

    FOR THE RECORD: I voted FOR the EU in the referendum we had on the subject. I did not then believe Wedgie Benn's plea that it was a giant employer's ramp, & the only other parties agin the EU at...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    Really! You, of all people should know ... The LAUNDRY of course! See also your own post @ #145 - where you point out that they are Civil Servants. At this point, it looks as though this discussion is going...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    Oh dearie me ... Only with a strong European system can we deter interference from authoritarian foreign powers Can't you see the deep irony in that statement? A really strong "European" system, that is just as susceptible to corruption &...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    Thank You Charlie! Your last paragraph is spot on to the central part of the problem with the EAW. And, unless & until we can be sure that similar standards are met for British citizens under EAW rules as would...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    And THAT explains why I'm agin it, entirely! And THANK-YOU to Paws @ #111. Spot on Again, from your self: give me a specific problem with the EAW and we can idly muse as to how to solve it. And...

    says the man who can't get over European construction No comprende senor - please explain? I lurve the Channel tunnel (I'm royally pissed off withthe fake "security" checks, but that's another story). If you mean I loathe the high-level corporate...

    but there's no formal barrier like the Fourth Amendment (the prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures). Wrong We have the Bill of Rights, 1688 - converted to an Act in 1689. Which prohibits arrest & imprisionment without cuase &...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    Second reply Sorry, but do, please, grow up Charlie! In the SovUnion, artists who were "unfashionable" were at the least publicly denounced & given low-grade work if lucky, or much more likely, simply "vanished" The worst that can happen here...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    You only too obviously have not seen the vigorously-flourishing "Arts" scene round here, then! [ Walthamstow is positively filling up with art-experimenters & practitioners & events. ]...

    Second - 15 million lives? I think you mangled a decimal somewhere. Link please? No problem, comrade! They add up, actually: Ukraine Famine PLUS famines in 1921 & 1946 PLUS loss of life after the able geneticists were murdered, like...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    Food was rationed and everbody with children used National Dried Milk and National Orange Juice. NO I got FRESH milk, every day, until the end of rationing ( & most of it went 1948-51 ) ... & I then went...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    China's governing mythology is of being an ethnically homogeneous, integrated empire-state. Yeah Ask the Tibetans or the Uighurs or the Miao or the Turkic/Mongolians .........
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    One other give-away .. That shows that, although all the spying apparat is in place here, Charlie is being (just a tiny little bit) too paranoid, at the moment - please note all the qualifiers, there! There's a. n. other...
  • Commented on Unwelcome reality excursion
    I have quite deliberately (at this point) NOT read any of the preceding / intervening comments. However, I met someone from the doughnut a few weeks ago - & pointed out, as I will point out to "all our readers":...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    Category Theory Much used in The "Mars" trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson .... Arnold @ 246 I see you've been reading right-wing roadbuilding propaganda: ever so desirable Public Works Projects like High Speed Choo Choo Trains. Steam-powered from turbines @...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    guthrie Businesses are constantly moaning that they can't get the skills they need, and blaming the education system for failing to provide workers with the right skills. Actually they have been doing this for as long as I can remember,...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    guthrie more bollocks I only found all this out "much later" so to speak I went to a (very good) state grammar school, since destroyed by people who believed they were "elitist", & thus utterly destroying any hope of poor...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    But class is about more than mere wages. Ah, but you are, perhaps one of the 1% or less, who may realise this? By education, interests & background, I'm A1 By income & domestic circumstances, I'm, C3 or D. Now...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    Charlie, some of us noticed that DRUGS etc bit from microsecond one.... Something smells of truly rotten kippers right through this story. Meanwhile, I'm reminded of a story from Sydney. A local "madam" gave her occupation on tax forms as...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    Agree, actually - you DID note my caveat about "in Europe" didn't you? No it isn't a "success", but it's also a lot less of a failure than anyone else's efforst (roubnd here at any rate). Um...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    Jay Gee If you are not careful & with Charlie's permission, from my own family's very diverse history, I'll really tell you why "class" is irrelevant! But not right now, okay?...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    Rational Plan & El @ 188 & 189 Well, "our" recovery is better than anyone else's (at the moment & in Europe ) Not that that is saying much. As both of you seem to note, wage increases, if not...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    it's probably Barroso playing head-games with Cameron. Unfortunately, I think you are correct. Like I said, you couoldn't make it up - except someone just did ..... Yes, your parallel comment on "Regional Aid" is a trifle snarky, but true....
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    And the press make more of an issue of "immigration" than UKIP do (I think) It's the coprarte stitch-ups that are annoying a lot of more thoughtful people, the restrictions on use (except to corporates) the crooked trade deals (TTIP)...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    One: How did the authorities finally cotton on to what was going on ... ? Two: Remember I said @ #135/6 that there was a giant fuck-up? Well, we've just had another one You could not make this up could...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    Me, I think it's a giant fuck-up. If only because tax revenues are dropping, even though unemployment is also dropping (quite fast) because the wages are so bloody pathetic....
