I have no idea, but it was snagged within 10 minutes of me posting that. So I guess there's still demand ;)

I cannot improve upon that headline.
Global warming denial, homophobic literature and leaflets claiming that foreign aid is actually spent on "giving dance lessons to Africans" was just the tip of the iceberg.

“Astrology was until modern times part of the tradition of medicine. I think it is a great pity that so many scientists today are dismissive of right-side brain energy, such as intuition. People such as Professor Brian Cox, who called astrology ‘rubbish’, have simply not studied the subject.”

Aren't bloodletting, trepanning and lobotomies part of the tradition of medicine too?
Conservative MP David Tredinnick has called for the NHS to use astrology to help treat patients.

What Can Be Done about Pseudoskepticism? - Scientific American

What do tobacco, food additives, chemical flame retardants and carbon emissions all have in common? The industries associated with them and their ill effects have been remarkably consistent and disturbingly effective at planting doubt in the mind of the public in the teeth of scientific evidence. Call it pseudoskepticism."

Lovely riverside pub, with a nice view and constant water noise from the weir just next to it. Prices are slightly high, on par with London gastropubs, but the quality of the food is good. Beer selection is above average. Their kitchen was completely overwhelmed by the number of orders and there were only two people working the bar, but I'm putting this down to unexpected good weather this early in the year.

This London icon lives up to all the hype. We went there for an anniversary dinner and it completely lived up to our higher-than-usual expectations. My only complaint would be that the waitstaff could be more attentive for such a quiet evening, but we weren't in a rush and savouring the surroundings and experience instead.

Always an interesting selection of ales, beers and ciders. Mondays are usually half-price cask ales, which shouldn't be missed. Prices are reasonable considering these are higher-end. Music has been consistently good, and never so loud you cannot have a conversation.

Very good. Small cosy interior that can get packed after work, but a great selection of beers and moderately-volumed music makes it worth it.

This is a lovely little French restaurant aimed squarely at theatregoers but with good food and decent set menus. Seems to be a family run affair, from the handcrafted menus to muralled walls.

Tiny pub with a great selection of beers, both on draught and bottled. Mostly foreign with a distinct American bias towards California IPAs.
