Boris sending the letter but not signing it
at 08:26 20 Oct 2019

Well said Sir.

If only parlianment would grow up, both sides, and get on with Brexit and stop trying to deny democracy.

He's showing the contempt he feels the letter is due.
Not childish at all.

If you force someone into a line they 100% disagree with then it's not going to be pretty.
By sending the second letter he is making his veiws clear.

It's also right not to sign it as the letter was from Parlianment.

Ross Brawn on 'time'...Football and ME can learn.
at 08:23 20 Oct 2019

Listening to Ross Brawn's book 'Total Competition'

He says that whenever he moved to a new F1 team he rarely took more than 1 or 2 people with him.
His strategy was for a three year period to win.
Year 1 - use what you have, learn and develop
Year 2 - his car, first year of moving to be competitive
Year 3 - Win.

He'd give existing team members that first year to allow him to learn about them. Not the other way around.

The money is F1 is strong and teams typically do give people time.

I was thinking about Jack Ross at Sunderland.
Naturally there are exceptions, Hurst is one. But, how much due diligence to team owners do? Hurst's plans should have twigged concern with ME. Did he get an external Headhunter in to offer thoughts as to how how style and ideas would effect a very tight and 'together' group?

If anything, I'll recommend the book. It's a fascniating and learning read.

I agree that the EU is a control freak but can't accept your point that they deliberately destroy states.

Yanis Verofakis makes a point similar to yours in his book, 'The Weak suffer what they must' but he is very much bouncing off the edge of conspiracy theories.

The EU does what is best for the EU. That can mean small nations have to swallow it sometimes and that is what I find toxic.

A few thoughts in time order, (I think)

Take the deal
My spinal fusion on Nov 6th is a total success and I can walk properly and run again, Marathon De Sable for my 50th birthday
General election
Lib Dems make ground from Tories and Labour, Con small majority.
JC sent to the back benches to continue his love affair with the bad guys
Boris to get us a good permanent deal as his small majority will keep it that way
Trump to be sent to jail and share a cell with Doreen the 20 stone dame of D Wing.
Democrats win and balance out the far right in the US getting us a better trade deal.
ITFC win L1 with a record points total

Awful.
It shows just how fickle and limp politics is when nobody is standing up to them.

I love the idea of the multi-verse.

Religion is the single biggest crime of mankind, even more vile than Branston Pickle.

There are loads of great audio books on the universe and physics, love them.

Have you read 'The weak suffer what they must' by Yanis Verofakis

He's very opinionated on the subject but makes some very good points about Greece's financial melt down.

Looks like it's Boris's deal or No Deal.

That should focus their minds tomorrow.

Deal done but no details yet

Good point.

Surely this deal should go through!

It was also said that Boris has stopped trying to please everyone, as May did, and thrown the DUP under the bus. R4 journalist not me before you all throw coins.......

Labour et all need to get behind this deal and stop trying to frustrate the referendum result.
