Post is pinned.
As I've seen others doing it, with G+ shutting down next year here are my profiles on other social media sites (with a few comments) in a pinned post. If you're interested follow me there, or not if you don't feel like it:

Not strictly speaking social media, but they are Indieweb enabled so let me start with my blogs:
My all purpose general blog: blog.ministryofpropaganda.co.uk
My Islay blog: new.islayblog.com
My Islay Photoblog: www.islay.org.uk

Twitter (almost exclusively only Islay related posts): https://twitter.com/islayblog

Facebook (again, mostly posting Islay stuff there, some personal things):
https://www.facebook.com/armin.grewe

YouTube (mostly videos of Islay, also some around West Berkshire): https://www.youtube.com/user/agrewe

Pluspora/Diaspora (dabbling with this. Islay posts of course, but also the politics, Brexit etc like here on G+): islayblog@pluspora.com (or what seems to be my profile: https://www.pluspora.com/people/46330910addf013646c5005056268def)

I also have a LinkedIn account, but at least for now there's not a lot happening there. No link, if you want to connect on LinkedIn feel free to search for me there.

That's how it stands now, if anything changes I'll update this post.

When will the Brexiteers understand that if Brexit means Brexit then backstop means backstop?

Someone needs to teach the Brexiteers what sovereignty and taking back control really means in a democratic civilised country. Although I'm not sure if that will help, as they seem to be hellbent to destroy it.

What's the German/Dutch/Swedish/Greek/French/Danish equivalent to clusterbùrach?
Add a comment...

I see some Germans are just learning the wonderful word "clusterbùrach" in connection with Brexit. Good.

What a success Brexit is. Those horrid EU foreigners aren't coming any more to plug the gaps in the NHS. The NHS can't attract workers with higher pay, as that would break the pay structure. Or even if they could, it would either gobble up the money not yet saved by leaving the EU or would require further tax rises. Tax rises are a taboo to most as well, in particular the Tories. So the only solution remaining is leaving rules unfilled and reduce care. Well done Brexiteers!

Interesting speculation that there might be no meaningful vote after all....

Not sure I get this. Why is the government spending almost a hundred grand of taxpayers money on Facebook to support their deal? The taxpayers aren't allowed to vote on the deal (at least not yet) and surely spending all that money on FB isn't going to help to convince the MPs who vote on it (once the vote actually happens)?
