    ERC @ 879 Bollocks I know a stout member of my local Labour party, as well as a nodding acquaintance with my MP ( I know her mother better ) ... And it's "Momentum" ( Militant under another name )...

    Overstatting the case, hysterically - again. "Intent to kill ... and any bystanders" err ...no. The Us is far too casual about "collateral damage", but they always seem to have had that problem - mainly because they don't seem to...

    WTG @ 873 And Labour, with Corbyn in charge - pushing Brexit for all he is worth ( not a lot, admittedly ) is better, in what way, precisely? ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ MODERATORS: # 874 appears to be advertising SPAM ( Please...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Actually no, you strongly implied that the UK did both, not "merely" passing on the information. That correction, now you have clarified I will accept, with reservations. However, although a criminal act, it isn't murder as such - it's "Accesory...

    Tim H @ 317 Much more likely that the PRC is playing a very long game & is engaging in colonialism by other means, by imitating the VOC & the Hon the East inda Company with commercial not-quite-yet colonialism in...

    EC @ 293 Wrong way round. Though the USA has always been more careless about erm "cllateral damage" - mainly because they can't shoot straight in the first place. It's the Russians who are probably worst - see Beslan School...

    Yes, it's subtle, isn't it? No physical overwhelming force, or flashy displays of "power" yet amazingly effective. "Printed" as in displayed - including on a screen - & incluiding writing in to blank/empty spaces too. NOTE: Any court case against...

    Superpower? How about being able to alter or convert ( Including erasure & placement-where-none-was-before ) of the printed & written word ( In any language or script ) .... I think that might have "very interesting" effects....

    GH @ 255 Sanctions ineffective? So the IJN attacking at Pearl H, 7/12/1941 was nothing at all to do with USA sanctions on oil to Japan, then?...

    Geoff Hart western armies do their damnedest to avoid civilian casualties because (i) professional ethics and (ii) it rebounds on them every time, and doubly so if they try to cover it up, and (iii) it's not a great way...

    Book-lengths Used a long time ago, often to be very long ( "The Three-volume novel" was reguar thing ) & then .... fashions changed & shorter novels & short-stories & novellas became the vogue. Approximately 1890-1905, in fact. There's even...

    Pigeon @ 105 Yes ... a problem I & other VIth-formers who wer going down the "science" route noticed in just about every "arts" subject. We were all told our answers were too short - some of replied that: "We've...

    Nojay @ 841 The UK loves cheap French nuclear power so much we're upgrading our existing 2GW cross-Channel power-sharing connections to about 5GW total, including a 1GW cable running through the Channel Tunnel. Which supply will OF COURSE be totally...

    Bill Arnold, Heteromeles (Frank) & everyone How apposite. This morning's "Today" programme had two utterly fascinating pieces in the 07.30 - 07.45 slot. An inteview with James Lovelock ( at age 99, good for him! ) with a strong aside...

    EC @ 782 YES - which is why I still sometimes think of myself as a left-wing conservative ... The rightward shift has now found me supporting a female Labour MP, as previously stated BUT Pigeon @ 783 Sorry, not...

    peterajet @ 774 Irrelevant, when Corbyn is a rabid brexiteer. However this piece in today's indie is onteresting - I tend to agree with it, for obvious reasons. You also seem to have missed my stated support for the SDP...

    David L @ 755 "Prospect" is usually regarded as reliable, & also as haonest as any other. Very strongly "Liberal" in social matters, faintly financially conservative, has had some very eminent contributors over the years. If they think it's going...
