    So to my mind the Whit Doc is trying to flesh out -still – her character thru a social justice warrior lens.

    Ok I’ve accepted that this series will be heavy handed with this multiculturalism theme.

    CC is trying to change the status quo in this franchise.  The subliminal message of Whit Doc

    is to question yourself .

    My problem is probably that…[Read more]

    Yes.    Bickerton is correct. The EU is facing a crisis.  They are like the Titanic heading for

    the iceberg.  Brexit is the life boat.  Both philosophical and financial.  They’ve already admitted

    that rebates will be ending. Grants will probably be cut back too.  The various countries in Europe

    that depend on the UK for a export m…[Read more]

    @jimthefish  and all following this topic

    So I decided to do some light reading tonight about the IRA point.   🙂

    I came across this piece

    Where did you read that? Your a full member of the World Trade Organization!

    There will surely be some steps you need to go thru.  I very much doubt its been ruled out

    when the UK has already been making a special budget to do this and  it’s not up to the WTO

    whether or not to ‘rule out’ the  UK.  Rather its up to all the other cou…[Read more]

    Scotland did have that independence proposition?  The bartering situation is ridiculous!

    However on 1 hand I can understand how the UK would want to make the most of their fishing/

    agricultural resources but I also agree they have to protect them too. My understanding about the

    hard Irish border has to do with the customs u…[Read more]

    @craig

    Isn’t the European Court of Human rights separate from the EU?

    If the EU continues to insist on a hard border then any issue with the IRA will be on them!

    Good solutions to this do exist and the EU is just using the issue to blackmail the UK.

    I have 2 questions  but there  will probably be others

    I wonder if Scotland will still get free University if they leave the UK  and also how does the

    Scottish fishing industry feel about Brexit?

    As for the rest of what you say,   I  think you might be over thinking your loss.  Whether  you

    have to do some of those things or not I hu…[Read more]

    What @bluesqueakpip said plus 2 things. It seems the leavers have big issues with the EU

    high court and its re-interpreting of UK laws.  They feel this means they are ‘subject’ to the EU.

    Also,  There seems to be this philosophical difference about where your freedoms come from.

    Are you born free?  In the UK you are and that’s wh…[Read more]

    False equivalency because the UK  is !! and always has been sovereign country and not California.

    The reality is that the people in favor of the Brexit despite of what you think about them, all have

    in common that they want to see the country start behaving like a sovereign country again and not

    as some subject state.

    Mr. Big as Trump light.  He was a totally nonsense bad guy. So was most of this episode. The

    song was a good choice and  Graham has a few nice moments, Yaz’s family  also had some

    fun moments.

    The EU is supposed to publish a corruption report at least every few years.  I think they stopped.

    Wonder why that might be ?  Do you really think they’re doing so great fixing corruption in eastern

    Europe  I don’t.   Do you think its easier to maintain oversight and accountability  over corruption

    within your regional governments?   I do.

    The 3 current challenges of the EU commission are in my view 1. toxic debt and fiscal discipline

    2.  Brexit  3. how to deal with refugees in a growing environment of increased acrimony and declining

    cooperation.  Huge issues.    The purpose  of trading blocs 1. taking economic advantage and 2. economic

    How much influence did the UK have with its vote in the EU ?  Now cause of Brexit its influence

    will be even further diminished.   The whole world in under the influence of capitol markets,

    trade and corporations.  It was the only thing that kept the world together although now its coming

    Agreed! I can see the exhaustion over the Brexit and I think it would be hugely unfortunate

    for CC to bring up the topic now.  Best stick to the historical politics.

    Secretary of State is FEDERAL  advice and consent job to the President. What’s your point?

    So the people of the UK participated in electing commission civil servants.  NOPE

    I take your point about the EU court and I’ll raise you a unelected by anyone in the UK EU commission.

    In California we send back tons of tax money to the feds for payoffs and pensions

    and subsidizing red states.  In the UK you get to do the same thing for Brussels.

    Expected this response from you.  Sorry but your the low information one here for me!!

    I’m struggling to understand why it is you think so highly about the EU but whatever.

    The only way for the remain camp to win is to do a Brexit.
