They want to improve how we handle referenda. We don't. The UK is a parliamentary democracy. Opinion polls don't count.
The EU referendum campaign was dogged by "glaring democratic deficiencies" with voters turned off by big name politicians and negative campaigning, the Electoral Reform Society says.

+Gilles Bourdin Brexit was an opinion poll that said "tick leave if you want things to change". If all the Brexiters had to agree on a realistic strategy for how the policy would be implemented you'd struggle to get 10% of the turnout in one line.

You want to be worried today? Just consider that the UK spook agency MI6 is now run by Boris Johnson...

We are still British!
Larry the cat will continue to live in Downing Street when David Cameron leaves office - because he is a civil service, rather than political, mouser.

He Said no such thing

Anyway, having an AR15 or AK47 is not going to allow some idiot, or even a whole building full to overthrow their elected government!
George Washington didn't say that free people need "sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence" from their own government.

God you are incredibly hard to look at.  No really, you are quite unattractive.  When you lose all your hair, you will be fat, bald, and still ugly.

Is this surprising to anyone? It's not official government policy (yet) but it shows what they think about some of the most vulnerable people in our society. 
Ministers should not delay unpopular cuts to benefits for pensioners, many of whom might

The state of our services has a lot to do with the hostility of our (conservative) government.

It is not just the sheer number of firearms in the USA that the developed world finds bizarre. It is people thinking they make them safer and people without in uniform training wandering around with them.
A man in East Texas is wounded after a bullet he fired at an armadillo ricocheted and hit him, the local sheriff says.

A time capsule of the USSR, post apocalyptic and a reminder of what can go wrong if you let complicated things be run by people who do not consider science and engineering important!

There was a wildlife programme on UK TV a couple of years ago. This place is amazing. It could be the salvation of the whole European ecosystem. Nobody is going to build in this place for a long time.

Why do people insist Duo is out? It pretty blatantly isn't.

Although is is out around here (UK and Europe anyway) I do think they shouldn't tell us it is out until it is available in more than (for example) just Cowchip Nebraska and Flatulence Illinois. ;-)

Is there a simple way of streaming to YouTube without a PC?
I am trying out an app from LiveStream but, to watch it, people seem to need an account.
It doesn't save to youtube either.

Story
Tagline
My parents were from Fife in Scotland and Orkney to the north of it. I am British and pleased about that.
Introduction
I am a product of the British Public School system from 3 decades ago.  I think I am getting better now.

Having tried a couple of different lines of work, I found IT was more fun than working in an accounts office and so have stuck at it.

I work in IT support in a hospital.  It is part of the British National Health Service.  Not only do I get to do work I like, I also get to support something I feel is the finest thing this country ever invented!

Looking after those who cannot look after themselves, is one of the basic definitions of being civilised.

These men had been forced into an army for a cause few of them really believed in. I don't know how they were captured but then they were taken to an unimaginably different place. The work they were brought to do has made a significant difference to this day. We are grateful. In their own time with few resources, they made this wonderful thing. A fine memorial.
