DAB Radios : I just had a thought. You only need one in the house, cos you can plug the rebroadcast to FM widget into the earphone socket and that way you can pick the same station up on all the FM radios in the house.

I'm not expressing an opinion on the rights and wrongs a bit more of interesting what ifs. If the first Scottish independence referendum had been run to the same rules as the EU referendum then Scotland would now be independent but possibly in the EU or another Norway and England probably not in the EU. Where that would've Ulster is anyone's guess. On the otherhand had the EU referendum required the same 40% of the electorate then it would've failed. In which case David Cameron would still be PM assuming no rebellion by some Tories.

As I say just interesting thanks to Tam.

We are all alarmed by the devastation of the latest disastrous bushfires in California.. But as usual the green tinged Governor Gerry 'Moonbeam' Brown blames it on Climate Change deniers. Willis Eschenbach is on ti it in WUWT.
Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach
here
He starts out:
Our charmingly incompetent California Governor, Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, has announced that all climate-change deniers are “definitely contributing” to the wildfires in the northern and southern parts of the state over the past few days, as well as blazes “in the coming years.” So look out, you dang “deniers”, it’s all your fault!

UK on brink of no deal over Brexit
here

May is simply treacherous as more of her cabinet seem to see .I've never understood why there needs to be any kind of "deal" for the UK to leave the EU. Just do it. The EU needs Britain far more than Britain needs the EU.

Shock, Horror, Polish Nationalists March Under Polish Flag On Poland’s National Independence Day

"It’s really quite remarkable how little the modern press seems to know about the world – here we’ve complaints that Polish nationalists have marched through Warsaw carrying Polish flags on the day that Poland celebrates Poland’s national independence. It’s complaining that Welshmen wear leeks on St David’s Day, a Scot gets drunk on St Andrew’s, an American barbecues on July 4th. What the heck is the national day if it isn’t a celebration of the nation?

But this is all being portrayed as some ghastly irruption of far rightness..."

Far Right - Left & MSM definition: to the right of Corbyn, Maduro, Castro, Stalin...

I have not seen that news, but can only repeat previous comments and observations about France.

Any French Government is in serious trouble if it has to use the Police or other Government Officials against French public demonstrations of dissatisfaction with the French Government.

Provided French interests are not harmed, French Government Officials will not intervene if demonstrations on French soil (or water) by French people, are targeted against foreign interests ie the UK.

Macron presides over the anti Marine Le Pen and FREXIT coalition. None of the Coalition's many party leaders will want to support Macron, if there is any public backlash. Marin Le Pen will milk her full quota as the Leader of the only Party to oppose Macron.

Macron won, about two thirds to one third. A 15% swing makes a lot of difference. If irreparable differences occur between Macron and his Coalition Party Leaders, a permanent swing of 20%+ is guaranteed.

Brexit Kayfabe III – The Final Tenderising

...And the final tenderising is underway.

There are three groups that seem to be participating in the deception – they’ve been playing the long con now for quite some time. The three groups are as follows:

Remainers A
Remainers B
The EU

Here’s what they are doing, and why.

Remainers A are the ones demanding a second referendum. It should be clear that this is a ploy, as clearly there isn’t going to be one.

Remainers B are the ones loudly warning against “crashing out” of the EU without a deal. Which could actually be described as “walking away and returning to free trade”

The EU are the ones pretending to care about peripheral issues like Ireland and fishing rights.

All three groups are part of the same con.

Their intent is to make us feel relieved when the EU accepts Chequers.

That’s right – the deal that the EU have always claimed to hate. The deal that everyone thinks is dead.

It’s the deal the EU gave to Treason May the day before she unveiled it at Chequers – have we forgotten her visit to Angela Merkel to get her marching orders?

Since that day, the entire EU and British political establishment (and our media) have been conspiring together to make the British public fear all the alternatives.

We have been told the alternative is a second referendum.
We have been told the alternative is to crash out of the EU.
We have been told the alternative is the loss of Northern Ireland, our fishing rights, our sandwiches, our medicines, and our food.

They have been tenderising us...

Now JRM surrendering too.

Golf Charlie
Have you seen Macron's latest problems with the "gilet jaunes"? It seems to be something of a repeat of the protests against fuel taxes of a few years ago by the "bonnets rouges". The French love naming groups of protestors after coloured clothing it seems. I'm not sure of the ins and outs of what is happening but the price of fuel has risen more in France thsn the UK for example. When we were in France a couple of weeks ago diesel was more expensive in Carrefour than Sainburys something I can't remember happening before. Coupled with the speed limited reduction Macron has alienated rural France. From looking on the internet it appears that a week of protests is due to start on Saturday, no doubt the Calais channel crossings will be targetted, might as well have a go at Perfidious Albion while we're at it,😀

Apparently The Taxpayers Alliance settled out of court to avoid disclosing its donors
