    The Tories don't seem to have problems with this.

    I suspect that the Europeans are just as keen to see the back of us as we are of them, but it appears that hope springs eternal in Vince's Lib Dem breast.

    It wasn't a bad site, in fact pretty easy going, but when I was on IMDBv2  I commented that the problem with the moderators was that they were a bunch of sanctimonious bastards but that happily they were illiterate sanctimonious bastards so that they would never get to read my posts.
    But they weren't (illiterate that is) and they read my post and I was banned.

    "Above seems to be a book, so not peer reviewed literature.
    I'd say their conclusion would have been seen as alarmist by science even in 1983."
    It is actually a series of research papers collated by various academics and funded by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. There is nothing particularly alarmist in the book. It is a solid read and further evidence that most scientists will just go with the flow and collect their grants rather than question the conventional wisdom.

    The use of nuclear power has many advantages over its alternatives. These include the current cost of the electricity produced, the cleanliness of the plant that is operating normally, the reasonably large reserves of uranium ore, and the enormous reserves of uranium and thorium ores if the breeder reactor is developed. A less well known advantage is the relief from the increasing levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere resulting from the burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil. As the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere increase, the temperature of the earth rises. This process is known as the ?greenhouse effect?. Just as the windows of a greenhouse allow the visible light from the sun to come into the greenhouse, yet retard the loss of heat inside, the layer of CO2 allows visible light from the sun to come through to the earth?s surface, but inhibits the passage of infrared radiation from the earth out into space. The Stanford Research Institute has predicted that at our present pattern of increasing use of fossil fuels, the greenhouse effect will cause the polar icecaps to melt, leading to the flooding of coastal cities by the year 2000.

    Make a video about yoga and post it on the internet. Or whatever you are interested in. As far as I am aware Youtube and co pay washers, but there is no heavy lifting and you can work your own hours.

    Actually, it isn't so much the morality or even the inherent corruption of these charity jaunts as the general lame brainedness of it all. 
    The charity workers could have stayed at home, saved some money but still pulled some nice girls. Instead they go off to the AIDS capital of the Caribbean and risk returning home with a few souvenirs that they could not put on the mantlepiece.
    You don't have to be very bright to work for Oxfam.

    I don't care if Mogg is so rich that he can afford to wipe his backside on £50 notes or so poor that he has to suck his fingers afterwards by way of dinner.
    He wants the UK out of the EU and that is enough for me.

    This should save me a few bob. Next time I am approached by a chugger from Great Ormonde Street Hospital I shall say, sorry lad, but I am a raucous male who likes to see young women in short dresses. And I dare say that the chugger will back away in horror and say, well, I know that the the hospital needs the money to help children in screaming pain, but better that they should remain in agony than be contaminated by your un PC donations.
