Re: Is anybody happy with the Brexit white paper?

I haven't commented on this thread for ages because Tommy and others express my feelings better than I ever could, and its a circular argument, just like discussing Trump. What do I want ericbee? Revoke Article 50, stay in the EU on current terms (just like about half of the country who have been to...

Very sad, I wish he'd made more music. His later, more experimental stuff was years ahead of it's time. 6 Music have been playing a few Talk Talk tracks today. I Believe in You probably my favourite.

Re: Tornado Farewell Tour

Filton is most closely associated with the RB199, although (from Wiki):

The model number of many Rolls Royce jet engines start with the initials RB (e.g. RB199) which stands for Rolls Barnoldswick, as Rolls Royce aero's design centre was situated in Barnoldswick

Geoff - get yourself along to Beat Generator for some of the tribute bands. I've seen Who's Next and The Complete Stone Roses there this year, and would have seen more if I was in country. I also saw Voodoo Room - a Cream/Clapton/Hendrix tribute - in Kinross, and a Pink Floyd tribute in Perth Hall. ...

Re: Is anybody happy with the Brexit white paper?

Couldn't agree more, and the really sad thing is that Labour could and should have been able to mount a formidable opposition which wouldn't have allowed the Tories to get away with what they've done. Unfortunately their leader is an unelectable, pro-Brexit vacuum who offers no hope to half the coun...

You're forgetting that most of them have grand-children, and that they therefore very much do have a vested interest in the future. They may have a vested interest but plenty of them voted in what they see as their own interest. There are plenty of examples where this referendum has caused argument...

Re: F35 in the news again

I'd love to see a comparison of the through-life support costs for a mixed fleet. From what I've read there's very little commonality. It's the same reason we didn't chop half of the Harrier fleet and half of the Tornado fleet. Having fewer types is a huge cost saving.
