  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I'm not sure why you need to have a smart meter in order to be able to swap electricity provider ?...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    A couple of comments on the ever-fascinating subject of cricket. There is no "speed limit" on how fast the bowler throws the ball; however there are rules about how they throw it, e.g. the arm being straight at the point...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Could Trump (get others to) organise his own political party, no doubt diverting some public contributions away from the Republicans, but still challenge for the Republican presidential nomination for 2024 ? If not, I can still see him trying to...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I would have guessed that "nativism" referred to "native americans", but from the context I'm guessing this is not the case....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    The current student loan system in the UK is actually a graduate tax - however the Tories are "not the party of taxation" (implying that other are) so its not called that. Essentially it provides a loan each year on...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    An alternative approach would be to activate in-country assets (either directly or via a third country) to attempt a series of assassinations/sabotages, with Trump applauding them as "the US supports/salutes these brave defenders of freedom". No risk to him, no...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I still dont think Trump will leave the US for any length of time, but if he does then I'd have thought Israel was the obvious destination....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I can think of several countries that would be happy to provide spurious data to the US State Department to justify an attack on Iran....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Thats not quite the same thing - in the UK it was the Labour party that "rescued" the banks, which seemed to involve Brown being pressured into doing what the financiers wanted because he/Labour craved City credibility. It is since...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    For 30 years one of the Conservatives' most important principles was that failing industries should be allowed to die. Then came the financial crisis and they realised that actually pushing many billions of taxpayer's money into the right kind of...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    To be fair Dracula would walk that bid in England - I think we can be sure he would know the right people....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    "All the people who took our money ditched us on the same day" - when they could no longer claim to be unaware of who we are and what we do....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I dont know about the US, but in the UK we seem to have social liberals - we want society that is somehow fairer than now social conservatives - we dont want any more social changes, its most unsettling social...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Unless pushed by Israel I'd expect Trump to hold back on the stirring up trouble abroad until it is clear that his supporters are unable to rid him of those turbulent Democrats....
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Will Trump issue a blanket pardon to those involved, even though police officers were injured and one has died ? It seems the easiest way to avoid details coming out in court cases and so maintain the "left wing agitators"...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    I find it difficult to believe Trump is considering leaving the US for any length of time - he will still wield a lot of influence (and money) on the back of his faithful supporters. After all he now has...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    I think there are 2 or 3 EU countries who may look at the Brexit deal as an opportunity to apply pressure to get what they want in unconnected negotiations....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    It is misleading to use Irish GDP as a comparison due to the significant distortion effect of them hosting (for tax purposes) the EU arms of several global IT companies. A better measure is GNP, which the Irish government themselves...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Sorry, 2658 was meant to be a reply to 2647 from Mike Collins...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I remember driving behind one of the original Fiat 500 (cinquecento) cars in Italy; it was occupied by two muscular gents who each had their window open and a (large) arm dangling outside with their knuckles almost touching the ground....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I think the government has said they will not levy tariffs from Jan 1st, i.e. will apply a 0% rate to all goods from the EU and hence, by WTO rules, goods from anywhere else in the world not covered...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    As R-M himself might say: *pshaw*...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Another issue with Edinburgh roofs is they tend to be architecturally, err, complex with areas that remain in shadow most of the day. This is not unconnected with their tendency to let the rain in and the resulting expense of...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Another problem with installing solar panels in Edinburgh is that if you just look at a typical tenement roof it will start leaking....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    My wife's immediate reaction: "the worst school run ever"...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I see the UK government have a plan (i.e. say they want) to move almost 100,000 UK students out of London in one week. Given their proven capacity for organisation and the reduced capacity of public transport this could be...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I suspect its the parts of the bill that override the devolved powers that the government are really determined to keep....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    If the Republican backers stick with Trump then my guess is that they'll use the court cases as a diversion (hey, one of them might work) while applying all the pressure they can on those members of the electoral college...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Someone said yesterday: "maybe the problem isn't that we underestimated Trump, may its that we overestimated Americans"...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    oops, forgot the supporting quote: "Over 3,000 UK companies are named in the FinCEN files - more than any other country" https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54226107...
