English Lit. V. Useful, esp critically comparing Apocalypse Now to Heart of Darkness Geography. V Useful. I’m basically an ancient human geographer now who targets oxbow lakes, raised beache stack and arch features for evidence. Modern History. V.useful. We need a revolution.

I love that this evoutionary ‘tree’ resembles mapped sediments in a braided river system. The geographer in me likes that fluvial systems seem ordered at high levels but are more chaotic and troublesome as you zoom in.

No this is a very human thing, a degree of friendly rivalry is to be understood but I hope it won’t ever get in the way of visionary collaboration. The Channel Islands could lead on so much.

It’s heartbreaking to see reports of so many EU citizens denied their right to vote today, all because of the incompetence of this Tory government. EU citizens are a fundamental part of our social fabric - their right to vote should be undeniable.

I was being mischievous just asking. But from my outsider perspective your relationship with Europe seems wonderfully contradictory but generally fraternal. It’s your relationship with Guernsey that I can’t figure out 😉
