Hilary Benn nails it....

He says the story of the last two and three quarter years is a "story of indulgence of a section of the Tory party".

Significant ruling over in the US on 'glyphosate'
at 09:49 20 Mar 2019

Long way to go etc. but still.....

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47633086

A US jury has found that one of the world's most widely-used weedkillers was a "substantial factor" in causing a man's cancer.

Pharmaceutical group Bayer had strongly rejected claims that its glyphosate-based Roundup product was carcinogenic.

But the jury in San Francisco ruled unanimously that it contributed to causing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in California resident Edwin Hardeman.

The next stage of the trial will consider Bayer's liability and damages.

There is no such thing as a 'No deal' Brexit.
at 12:13 13 Mar 2019

Just a small point of order really.

Deals have already been done to ensure planes still fly in respective air spaces, this is merely one simple example of the numerous deals that have already taken place with the EU.

I guess I'm being slightly pedantic but I do wish there was a much more coherent messaging and understanding. We won't leave the EU with No Deal is we leave on the 29th without May's deal.

In the wider scheme of things I guess it's a small point but I feel it's significant.

Anyway, Malthouse B or Z then?

Can we hope for a general election?
at 13:42 12 Mar 2019

Charles Walker, vice chairman of the 1922 committee of Tory backbenchers, tells Radio 4's World at One programme that if the deal does not go through tonight, there "will be a general election within a matter of days or weeks".

"It is not sustainable, the current situation in Parliament," he says.

"We have backbenchers at each other’s throats.

"The country deserves more than this.

"We have to make a decision tonight and it has to be to let this deal pass."

So, basically, no change then. Can't see the deal being voted through, No deal Brexit won't go through and then we'll vote to extend.....

Good match, nice football at times but oh for a goal scorer.
at 23:50 13 Feb 2019

Impressed with everyone today, we looked like a unit. We harried, chased, worked, played some football, defended generally well (bar the 1st min).

Oh to have someone upfront that can make a run, be available for a pass as the play from the midfield at times was excellent and if Bish had a runner or two in front of him....well.

However, that kind of performance is the bar minimum that we have needed all season. I would suggest that is the first time this season that we've actually stamped a bit of authority onto a game, sure the last 10 mins were a touch stretched, they hit the woodwork but, finally, we actually made a team work. At times Derby were chasing shadows, the midfield used the ball so well. Triangles, runs off the ball, forward, incisive passing at times.

We still lack a cutting edge and/or if we'd had Keane and Quanar a little more match fit etc. we might have created 1 or 2 more clear cut chances.

Tonight was a vast improvement over, primarily because even though we went a goal down, we battled, played, mixed it up and generally actually made a bloody fist of it.

Well done - now we've finally set a decent bar - a platform on which we can inch forward. Saturday, clean sheet and nick a win?

I want to take the positives from today
at 17:36 10 Feb 2019

But, in all honesty, it sums up our season.

We huff and puff,we try hard but there is a lack of quality, we are toothless up front and individual errors cost us dearly.

We deserve to be where we are, we can pick the bones from the match today but it's moot and pointless.

Anyone thinking we will walk League 1 is in for a shock.

The worst I have ever seen us over the course of a season. Ever.

Peter Lilley on Radio 4 this morning, anyone catch it?
at 14:59 21 Jan 2019

Short piece about the costs of a hard brexit from a business perspective.

He stated that we pay the EU around £10b net to the EU per annum (he didn't detail what this was for exactly) and then stated if we left the EU on a hard brexit the cost to UK business in tariffs et al is around £5b per annum....so, in effect he was saying that even on a hard brexit we'd gain £5b per annum.

Now, I'd love to be able to fact check those figures? Anyone know or point me in the right direction?

Also, is this, in effect, the 3% to 6% of GDP loss the IMF and likes have calculated as the cost to the UK economy for leaving the EU?
