Quote:
With less than three months until Britain is due to leave the EU, the government is launching a publicity drive to prepare the public for a possible no-deal Brexit. The Brexit secretary, Stephen Barclay, said Whitehall departments and the health regulator would begin publishing guidance on how the public can get ready for potential issues that may arise from a disorderly break from Europe.

Barclay said no-deal would become “far more likely” if MPs reject Theresa May’s proposed Brexit deal in a vote in the Commons due the week beginning 14 January.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... eal-brexit
May and the Tory pack made rejection likely. Intentionally cultivating fear so brazenly is frightening, really. Either they don't care or assume everyone is too ignorant to see what they're doing.

Alternatively you can stop feeding the burdensome narrative which itself devalues others.In some ways it was a change,in others it was a continuation at a much heightened level.

As much as the system so encourages for support,there is no reason to comply with such self pitying woe is me stuff.Mwybe I had an example where actual taking away was met with zero self pity.

And the misrepresentation as a "woman's issue" not only statistically debatable (in some age groups more men are carers)not helpful IMHO.

Been into town today. Call Me Dave by Isabel Oakeshott and Michael Ashcroft is piled high in Smith's, a bargain at £1.

I thought we'd have that much-vaunted technological solution by now.

Or is that what tinyclanger2 has been working on?

TCG --- you are the only one here who twigged that the fundamental prob with the REF was the UK Parliament which voting for it in the first place .

Forget Cameron, they voted for it 544 to 53 .

THEY are the Guilty Ones , trapping the UK Public into a Poisoned Vote .

Apologies to TBG , the one who understood !

TCG was the guilty one .

I bought myself James Elroy's 'Underworld USA' trilogy with some christmas money (I'm 50 but I still get christmas money :dance: ) and the first of them - American Tabloid - is bloody great right from the word go. I'd read two of the LA Quartet before - LA Confidential and The Black Dahlia - and read the other two - White Jazz and The Big Nowhere - last year. He is hard as nails and grotesquely violent as anything but remarkably cool all at the same time. This trilogy is about the Kennedys - a story of America from around 58 to around 68 - told through the eyes of three 'players' for J Edgar Hoover, Jimmy Hoffa and so on. Tremendous stuff.
