Moving Moments . . .

This blog is on the move, and its continuation can be found at : Lengthening Shades where I hope we shall continue our acquaintance for some time yet . . .

Why so secretive . . . ?

Note the date on the front cover of this House of Commons Library publication . . .   Elise Uberoi of the House of Commons Library evidently prepared this document and it was published on 3rd June 2015 – over a year before the great EU Referendum fiasco. The paper was actually prepared as a… Read More »

The Great “Majority” Myth . . .

It has puzzled me for some time that we are constantly told that “Leave won” (“suck it up”), that the “Nation” voted for “Out”, that there was a majority in favour of non-EU membership, that we have heard the “voice of the people”. Yet it is plain to see that of those who voted, some… Read More »
