Just tell you that the party system is no longer reflective of the population and that knee jerk popularism is the dangerous benefactor

I think it’s a real example that whatever the logic or practical & most equitable, even humane, way we distribute wealth & resources - the element that is ignored at our peril is the power of emotional response and sense of belonging humans attach to symbols and group identity.

Maybe the problem is one of degree and perception of the problem. Tim, you talk about making us ‘a bit more’ environmentally friendly - they believe that it’s not about a bit but much more urgent. However it’s a global political issue not so much just U.K. or even EU

I love to win - to win elegantly is a real joy but losing well can be a bitter but less painful experience

Never allow yourself to think that Farage and the nationalism of the far right can be controlled and put back in the box once it’s allowed legitimacy for what ever reason

BREXIT parties are just the Trojan horses of fascism, good people who are genuinely concerned for the poor and disadvantaged, please don’t be taken in and repeat the mistakes of the 1930s

Maybe,despite the outrage he had a point! Wait, don’t go crazy on me! Many (not countries per se) do have a view of what European means, a kind of federalism not the scary Farage manic version but something that grates on the last vestiges of the Empire mentality of some British

Cathedrals are living communities of prayer and vast acts of faith, and I cannot begin to think of what the people who’ve shown their devotion to the fabric of Notre Dame must be feeling. It’s utterly unbearable.

Boris Johnson says once we Brexit the toxic polarisation and name calling will end. Why, isn’t clear. He rightly says he was one of few to argue for immigration as London Mayor. But that was when he needed metropolitan, multicultural votes.

WTO is complex & has serious difficulties. It hasn’t helped with food security, climate change or global trade imbalances - so it is not the solution to anything. Free trade areas (FTAs) such as the EU, NAFTA, ASEAN etc expanding are currently more likely to help than the WTO
