Replying to @LBC @mrjamesob
I voted remain but was quite close to voting for brexit because of Greece. The prospect of war in Europe and Greek finance man Varoufakis (he knows more than me about what happened in his country) saying to stay in tipped me to voting remain. I AM SO GLAD I DIDN'T VOTE BREXIT!!

It was all so bleeding obvious from the beginning (eg May 2017)

It has been 8 months since Julian Assange is isolated and without visitors (except lawyers). This changed only recently, with a new security protocol for visitors. Feels like entering prison, but thrilled to be visiting him today, with some presents from Croatia!

The only way out of the Brexit mess is to let the people have a say. And, yes, the brexiteers lied & distorted in 2016. But so did the official Remain campaign. Time for the people to speak via a general election. (Referenda offer a yes-no choice. We have at least 3 options now)

Agreed. But then ask for a second people's vote (to avoid labelling Leavers non-people) - once of course you are certain that the people will not be forced to choose between Theresa May's botched deal and a no deal Brexit (given that referenda are yes-no, binary choices)

My resignation was an act of resistance to the troika on behalf of progressives everywhere - and an act of defiance against Tsipras' surrender. For this I am being vilified by both the Establishment & Syriza, with the "pots of money" & yachts rubbish that you re-produce here.

Yanis Varoufakis says UK is heading for a “Hotel California Brexit”: “you can check out but you can never leave.” (As he predicted in 2016.)

Το 2015 ο Γιάνης Βαρουφάκης ως ΥΠΟΙΚ προϋπολόγιζε περί τα 400εκ€ τα έσοδα από τις τηλεοπτικές άδειες. Τα ΜΜΕ τον λοιδορούσαν. Μετά από ενάμιση χρόνο κατέβαλλαν 300εκ. Τι ακριβώς αγόραζαν με αυτά τα χρήματα; Μα το προνόμιο να μας λένε πως να σκεφτόμαστε.

Good that world, here all-powerful IMF, is moving on this. Under Correa, Ecuador started a digital money system. (Moreno of course abandoned it.) As always, mainstream lags behind true pioneers

Τα προπολεμικά μουσικά ρεύματα, η αλλαγή μεταπολεμικά με την αναβάθμιση των δοσιλόγων σε αστική τάξη και η σύνθεση που επιχειρήθηκε στη δεκαετία του '60.
