  1. The Bethnal Green Schoolgirls

    I ask again, is there any evidence that she committed crimes (other than the "supporting terrorism" catch-all). Going abroad to support a cause that perhaps neither of us agree with should not in and if itself be a crime. If course if there is any evidence to the contrary then she should be dealt with by the country where the crimes were committed. If they aren't willing to do this then I see it as no business of the UK. Comparing her to people who have been convicted of murder isn't helpful in any way.

    I think your information maybe a little out of date. As far as I am aware this was binned at the time IPSA was formed and the expense allowances re-written.

    Have you any actual evidence that this person committed any crimes? If not then what is the basis for exclusion? It is just another instance of the UK making up laws on the hoof and poorly thought out ones at that. It is no wonder that they are desperate to remove themselves from the ECHR.
  4. If it was purely a cost issue then they would have a roundabout at every exit. For some strange reason there is only this one.
  5. I have driven on it and more than 8 times I have wondered why the f**k did they put a roundabout on it at Cleanhill? I can only assume it is to piss off everyone using it as there is no need for it when a flyover and ramps could quite easily have been accommodated. Road designers can GTF.

    "Free" is a relative term. These will still cost over £500 each with avios and a companion voucher.
  7. If only it could have been predicted. Oh forgive me, it seems it was. I am also not sure why leaving shouldn't be a problem as I can't see people wanting to hang about the stadium until traffic reduces. Leaving has been indentified as a much bigger issue than arriving and even here, Aberdeen FC have tried to use the Fanzone as a reason why supporters will arrive at staggered times and remain at the stadium after matches. It appears that the one thing that they didn't take into account is that they are discussing Aberdeen supporters. If any group is likely to disperse from the stadium as quickly as possible it would be them.

    It depends how much you spend. The BA American Express offerings can be good value if you are willing to churn them every six months. PS. I am sure that this will be the best answer so please donate my book to your local neds bonfire. Thanks.

    WHOAH !! That towel you just threw in nearly hit me...... If you are too lazy to read something that has already been posted then fair enough, just say so.

    The instances of salmonella in EU chicken is approximately twice that of the US. Chicken is not safer to eat in the EU. You appear to be contradicting yourself as your last post stated that it was a welfare and not a safety issue, so which is it?

    Feel free to read my previous posts on my expectations of our relationship with the EU.
  13. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Really? Since you appear to be well versed on this, what are the relative differences between the EU and the US in terms of animal welfare?

    Over 1m Scots also voted for it. Not sure that they fit your profile.
  15. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    All of those are more reasonable than voting to leave on the basis that it might bring about Scottish Independence. However, I am sure that there were many different reasons for the leave vote just as there were for remain. Unless you believe that the remain voters are one late hemogenous group with identical expectations on our future relationship with the EU?
