So as we throw the damp rizla packet of disappointment into the overflowing ashtray of sadness and hope that the weekend's big fish doesn't eat the little fish in the cardboard box, we realize that it's not that bad, it's just another rainy monday.

100 years since the end of "The War To End All Wars".
Never forget.
Never again.

Peace.

Imagine.
War is over.
No more war.

Tomorrow night on Armistice day, where's the party where we celebrate that we're still alive and we're not at War?

This was a tradition all through the 20s. And let's not forget that Armistice day, VE day and VJ day were huge parties.

We can be all sad as we remember those we lost. But then we need to have a wake.

Never forget. Never again. Peace.

Labour MPs must not vote for Theresa May's deal because "it's better than No Deal". And especially if it fails Labour's 6 tests. It's becoming clear that Labour and Momentum members don't want Brexit. They want a General Election. And if there's no General Election, they want a People's Vote.

Stuck for a Halloween costume? Exercise your inner Rees-Mogg with this tasteful "Sexy Factory Owner". And as it's in UKIP colours you can re-use it at their next party conference.

A snip at only 25 Euros.

Following Saturday's March Against UK-Exit

We don't need another referendum or vote for MPs to come to their senses, act in the national interest and say:

"You asked us to try and find a way of leaving the EU. Well, we've done our best and we can't find any sensible way of doing that. So we've decided to cancel Article 50 and call the whole thing off. Here's my resignation".

Anti-Brexit March - London - Sat 20 Oct

3 Days to go. Be there. And vote with your feet.

Apparently Green Park has reduced capacity so find another tube station to use to get to Park Lane/Hyde Park Corner for the start.

Paul Ehrlich - The Population Bomb

By a spooky coincidence, Paul Ehrlich published The Population Bomb in 1968 in the same year that population growth rate peaked at 2.09%/yr. The global population that year was 3.55b. If that growth rate had been maintained ever since then we would have passed through 10b this year. So we're really lucky that 1968 was also pretty much when we transitioned from exponential growth to linear growth and hitting 10b is still 38 years away. It's easy to see now in retrospect that the demographic transition happened and come up with all kinds of reasons why it happened. It's harder to come up with reasons as to why Ehrlich should have seen it then. He was writing in a time when we'd had a 100 years or so of exponential growth over 1.5%/yr and in the previous 20 years it had been accelerating. So I think he deserves a break for being overly pessimistic back then.

10b, right now, and having got there so fast, would not be pretty. I don't think its going to be pretty in 2056 either, but we have a little more time to adjust.
