You do know that the ECHR has nothing to do with the EU, don't you coffee? And that we'll still be bound by the ECHR if we leave the EU? obviously the leader of UKIP does not know this.

Re: In or out?

pretty well my own thoughts: http://jackofkent.com/ I disagree with this: But the brute constitutional fact is that Brexit has now been approved by both parliament and the electorate.

Re: In or out?

we already know that borders are not usually frictionless (that is because they are borders) and even the one between two members of the Single Market, ie Norway and Sweden, is not.

Re: If you could go back and meet yourself as a teenager

I could not be more different. I was a swot and a very innocent and studious idealist who did not drink or smoke or consort with anyone. Now I do not smoke, but I do drink and consort if allowed to. This does not answer your question :laughter:

Re: Satan gave man love. Was it worth the hate?

I just don't like religion, because it cheapens humanity. The adherents think it exhausts them, but in their eyes it diminishes those who think beyond their faith. It's a black hole that makes anything and anyone else irrelevant. I was born and raised as a Jehovah's Witness and it stunted every con...

yes, JustMe, if I get you right, Gnostic Bishop's stuff would be more appropriate on some religious site. The Gnostics were an ancient Xian heresy. Possibly their message was a bit nicer than the horrible stuff which became the mainstream (not just among Catholics) for so many centuries and still co...
