Re: Brexit

The trouble is that it isn't particularly good for social cohesion. The original referendum question was fine if Remain had won, but it simply wasn't designed for a Brexit victory. A no deal Brexit will satisfy a fair number of people, but far from a majority. Combine economic hardship and a majori...

Re: Brexit

When I first saw this it was at 800 thousand... https://odileeds.org/projects/petitions/?241584 Now it is up to 29% of the electorate in some places. I think Brexit is now inevitable. Another referendum, unless won by remain with a massive majority (e.g. 60%+) is just going to lead to more social i...

Re: Abortion sucks

I did, rather boldly ask The Most Beautiful Fire Breathing MemSahib, Her Imperious Loveliness Indoors lying on a sofa eating cakes about time limits on abortion. Not sure if her sniff was an endearment or dismissive, but a sniff it was, and then eloquently "That's between the woman and her Doctors ...

Re: White Nationalist Terrorist Kills 49

Why is talking about victims more than the attacker desirable? The survivors and the victims families need to be looked after and treated with respect, certainly, but in such a situation I'd much rather be left out of the media spotlight as much as possible. In terms of the attacker, you will have ...

Re: White Nationalist Terrorist Kills 49

Being Australian I just assumed he was called Bruce. In all honesty I think this is more about politics than anything else. The Kiwi PM is saying a line that appeals to her supporters. Whether it has any impact on the crime itself I doubt. In terms of notoriety, I'd say being singled out by the PM ...

Re: White Nationalist Terrorist Kills 49

Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux recently toured Australia and NZ touting their "Great Replacement"/White Supremacy" story. They whine A LOT about their "freedom of speech", about protesters trying to shut them down. But you can see why protesters feel this way. As we have learnt from history, wh...

Certain nations with certain ethnicities have produced a disproportionate amount of scientific discoveries and inventions.

Hmmm. I don't have that problem. Just tried on Chrome on my home machine (Windows) and my work box (Linux) and it seems like everything scales OK
