Yup, faulty logic, faulty knowledge, faulty understanding and faulty beliefs make a potently faulty combination!

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?

Yeah, but worrying, isn't it? Ted Cruz may well agree...

Getting closer to my idea for a future-fiction novel where the US is totally religiously fascist and isolationist (not such a fanciful idea these days) with visitor entry allowed only in two ports, one each on the East and West coasts, and mandatory destruction of vehicles or people trying elsewhere.

An English humanist, posing as a Strict Methodist preacher, is attempting to rescue a dissenting scientist . . .
