The Nightingale Collaboration

#1 Post by Alan H » October 17th, 2010, 12:26 am

For those who didn't see the announcement in the insomniacs' thread:

The Nightingale Collaboration
Alan Henness

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

it would make my brain hurt to be a volunteer, I have not got enough sinapses left working. However I will attend with interest to your progress and support the collection wherever and whenever I can.

Wow - there's nothing quite like putting your time and money where your mouth is, well done indeed :happyclappy:

Now the work starts, I guess... are you thinking of loads of volunteers all over the place doing a bit, or a few doing a lot? Is there something, say, I can do for a couple of hours a week in the middle of nowhere?...

Thanks for all the support!

We're looking at the campaigns, but there is a lot of work to do alongside that. There will be different campaigns, requiring people with different skills. Don't worry, we'll let you know! :wink:

Very commendable. We could use something like this in the US.

Awesome stuff guys, I saw the announcement - it's a great idea and I can't think of anyone better placed to execute it. I hope I'll be able to contribute some time to the collaboration (when I finally have some time available again!)
