Retired after 38 years in education. Enthusiastic amateur who paraglides, writes, cartoons & plays guitar. Life could be good but for Brexit's cold shadow.

A scene that could have come straight from Euripides! Truly a fitting demise for an antihero who studied Classics at Oxford.

I know Vote Leave weren't a government, but the government is now basically Vote Leave. Wouldn't it be good if we saw journalists trying to hold them to account for what they said during the referendum, rather than giving them a free pass?

If people got 48% in their end of year exams, they'd see it as a failure. They'd also see 52% as a failure. That's why we shouldn't rely on an advisory referendum from 3 years ago... Engineered by over privileged dorks. Should have been a super majority!

Never have Maxwell's words been so true as now, not least that those who want most to hold on to [power] don't understand that it's only temporary. Outside of simple rationalism tells us all other paths lead to failure, regardless of oomph, bumptiousness and piffle.

Dear Tory Brexiteering Shysters, Poltroons and Cretins. You know that you are f*cking the country to Kingdom Come and I appreciate that you just don't care. But does it never occur to you to worry that the country so f*cked might come after you like a rabid dog and rip you apart?

Looks good, but somewhere down the line he's going to hurt himself. That's aviation.

I won’t! Boris Johnson can engage in whatever posturing he wants, but I will still be representing my constituents in Brussels

Simple request to *every* MP who opposes no-deal or doesn’t want the blame for it. Between now & 31/10, before each tweet, meeting, decision, ask just one question: does this make no-deal more likely or less likely? No ego is more important than someone else’s medicine. The end

These are my inner and now very public thoughts on when people try and use the futile, dangerous and extremely dismissive narrative that Brexit’s final scene will comes down to who blinks first. Ireland’s peace is no political game. 🇮🇪🕊🇪🇺

Jeremy Corbyn campaigned for Remain..... Technically, yes...... Half-heartedly, also yes. Just go back to the archives Owen and watch the video clips.

The point of modern propaganda isn't only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate the truth.- Garry Kasparov, political activist. This Government are not even hiding the fact they are corrupt, the ministry of lies & misinformation.

Belfast Agreement binds UK not to change its laws affecting cross-border issues - without cross-border agreement. Johnson’s letter ignores that.

Oddly enough, I'm not overly worried about the ecosphere. It ticked along perfectly well through hot spells & ice ages, evolving & wiping out species as habitats arose & were eradicated. I'm worried about the existence of an ecosphere in which we humans will play no part.
