So effectively the EU is like the Mafia or the IRA or any other dangerous, bullying organisation: Once in you can never leave? :-)

Whatever it 'costs' will be a one-off payment, eventually, it will come to an end and the UK will not have to contribute (or pay) anymore! The laughable thing is that the people who voted "Leave" were not interested in "Soft Borders" or "EU citizen worker rights" or any of the other delaying tactic negotiations that are going on they just wanted to leave for a whole host of reasons not just immigration which a lot of people will try to make you believe. The only rabid people baying about those topics are the people who voted "Remain" clearly the leave voters won the argument but it's those who voted "Remain" who are controlling what is happening which makes a mockery of voting imo. It's all a bit like one partner divorcing the other with accusations of abuse while the children demand the parents still have rumpy-pumpy! šŸ¤¦ā€ā™‚ļø
I doubt that Britain was aware of what they were getting into by voting Leave the EU ... To get what they want will cost them the same or even more than they've been paying. And there is no way to pick out things they like and block others. They might ask Switzerland about the procedure ...

OMG! Can you believe that VW actually financed some research to prove their diesels were clean which involved a human on a bike, in a room, while exhaust gasses were pumped from another room via a pipe attached to the exhaust of one of their cars!

After it was pointed out that maybe that might make people think of another scenario where that was implemented they instead gassed monkeys for over two hours!

ASLEF would burst a blood vessel if they tried to implement that here! We can't even phase out Train Guards let alone Drivers.

So there was I, scouring the web to find out why Firefox was refusing to connect to Pinterest after I had deleted all cookies etc. I tried everything I saw on Google search, deleting the fresh cookies, telling Firefox to forget (sites) Pinterest all to no avail. Now the thing is, Pinterest works on my other installs using Firefox so what, I was wondering, is the specific issue with this install?

Now, most 'support' people will tell you, the very first question when something was working and now isn't is "What has changed?" to cut a long story because I know you're getting bored, I asked myself a question that you wouldn't ordinarily think to ask. "What has changed since you last cleared your cache Pete?" the answer came to me in a flash, I have installed Privacy Badger a few months ago, I disabled it and "Hey Presto" Firefox happily logged in. The moral of this story is "The answer is not always where you would expect it to be!"

Actually, that's an interesting idea. I wonder if there are legal grounds?

Like him or loathe him, sometimes Trump comes up with radical ideas that make you think "No, seriously? I wonder if that's actually doable?"
