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?

In matters of the defence of the realm I expect what the rpyal family and the government to be shrouded in secrecy. But where it is a public matter, involving public funds to a public service - secrecy should not be involved. However, I suppose Charlie is as entitled to any of us to write, in a private capacity, to any MP or minister. If the minister chooses to allow a letter from royalty influence their decisions on such matters then he or she should be sacked for being a brown nosed toadie.

A few years ago Jeremy Hunt signed a pro-homeopathy EDM. He now admits that was a mistake and that he does not support homeopathy.

Listen to him on BBC Radio 5 Live this morning (it's just one minute long).

He says he must follow the science and the evidence. Good, and that removes a lot of support homeopaths might have been counting on, but pity he couldn't apply the same rigour to other areas.

I find it quite frightening that people like these are supposed to be running this country. The idea of King Charles makes me feel sick.

Dave B, You may try to ask Prince Charles for an homeopathic remedy to your sickness!

Two excellent videos on homeopathic bullshit:





The second one is based extensively on my blog post: That ‘neutral’ Swiss homeopathy report and the translations by Sven Rudloff.

The next video will look at the recent Advertising Standards Authority's adjudication against the Society of Homeopaths.

Very good Alan, off to read your blog post now.

Blog post also very good (You must invest a lot of time and effort)
I don't know how you tolerate the apologists, especially Avijit whom it seems thinks s/he's clever by posting your real name.
Pleased to see most of the comments are positive though.

The latest video from CoolHardLogic demolishes the 'evidence' that the Society of Homeopaths submitted to the ASA to support the claims they were making. It's very, very good.
