If most Remainers, instead of a small minority, had accepted the democratic result and had acted like adults, been patriotic, rather than fifth columns by channeling their efforts into a successful Brexit and a successful UK we would not be where we are now with all their plotting, collusion and hidden agendas. IMO absolutely shameful how they have behaved. >:( >:( >:(

That's right, just blame it on a "small majority" of remainers instead of blaming the big majority of Brexiteers who, after starting this all off with a series of lies to the British people, have only worked to try and feather their political nests instead of working towards getting the best for the country.  As the "majority" they have failed to turn victory at the polls into the reality they promised.  They are the ones to blame, not a minority!!

In anycase, whatever, it is no good you or anyone else entering the blame game now.  What this country needs is for everyone to work to get the best we can get for the nation and it's people.  If that means a tactical withdrawal, before a new offensive as I stated above, for the sake of the nation and all our well being, then so be it! ;)

I rest my case from my earlier post! On the subject of lies, what was Project Fear which continues to this day then?

Lifelong mobster Donald Trump is going down where the two indictments so far are just the prelude, we aren't at the starter stage, let alone the multiple main courses yet. He may or may not see through his 4 years as president where the Democrats may well not risk impeaching him where the trial will be in the Republican controlled senate. What may happen, although I'm convinced he would throw himself under a bus to save his family, is to cut a deal with Mueller and to resign to save them especially where much of what the Trump crime family has done may fall well under being capital crimes.

This is essentially what General Michael Flynn has done by cutting a deal with Mueller to save his son, but the sentencing of Flynn Snr so far have been for minor crimes compared to what he may face by liaising and working with Russian intelligence depending on what he has shared with them, which the intelligence community are hinting is significant.

Chinese proverb: "May you live in interesting times." 2019 is shaping up to be a very interesting year already. :o :o :o

A country's money, wealth & property rights are IMO third on the list. Number one is freedom & democracy which are linked. Number two is good health and a good health system that you can afford to use when you need to.

On your you can live anywhere, I'm the same, all I heed is a reasonable Internet connection and phone system to work & earn a living. If we become a vassal state of the Brussels' dictatorship, then I will be moving to a non-EU state, the nearest of which is the Isle of Man as I won't live or subject my family to living under any oppressive, undemocratic regime. My wife and her family have been there under Soviet rule, which includes state starvation, slavery and 'enemies of the people' disappearing to never be seen again.

So for 200 Tory MPs the very democracy that elected them, they are happy to set the mandate and to play their part so it is extinguished in this country by May & the anti-democratic grey suits behind her. She has now got the mandate to do this & if she succeeds we will for the first time since 1066 no longer be a free self-governing nation. Our only hope now is for the 117 MPs who voted against her, to hold firm & stop her & the grey suits like BLiar, Mandlescum, Major & two EU pensions Clegg from succeeding. >:( >:( >:(

Never ever lose sight of the fact that however benign a dictatorship is when it starts like the EU the more power it amasses and the more unpopular it gets (like all governments do over time), the more ruthless it becomes in preserving the power and privileges of those in charge. If UK democracy is stolen from us the people, dark, violent times lie ahead where we will all have to choose like in Cromwell's day on which side we are on. Are you for democracy, wealth creation for the masses, private property and the same laws applying to everybody or for an all powerful ruling elite and regime where you lease everything from the state including your life and any lease can be cancelled at any time?

The invention by German Gutenberg of the printing press caused similar problems in Europe where it was seen as the age of enlightenment with the increased printing of text for literature and a new age for everyone. Instead Luther harnessed it for political religious change so instead you got unrest, the Protestant Reformation and the triggering of the 30 years war, the deadliest religious war in history. :o :o :o

Russia's & China's use & abuse might trigger the same but we aren't there yet. ::) ::) ::)

May certainly has been working hard on #BRINO with her alleged four behind the scenes confidents who have driven her #Brext: BLair, Mandlescum, Major & Clegg. >:( >:( >:(

But people will vote for them in your absence.

For rhe life of me I cannot understand why a new party did not emerge . A party for properly leaving,  making British people proud tobe British, a party tolead Britainout of the morass. Not UKIP , not lib dems. Instead it is just aform of limbo land .

JUst when you thought all twists  had been taken, this comes up . Still a long long way to go yet.

No deal, a decent set of negotiaters , a decent set of problem solvers ( like where to source lettuces)  is the way forward.

I'm aware of three new parties that are forming or are formed and like in mainland Europe I expect new parties to rapidly have an effect on the electoral landscape. Both Lab & Cons. will probably split into two parties. The Internet & social media, have changed the political landscape in mainland Europe & I personally expect the same to happen here.

New Parties:

Time Party
CleanBrexit Party
ProsperUK Party

May has killed her nasty party. Many people, including me, will never vote Conservative Labour Light while she is still leader. IMO neither of the main parties are electable at the moment so neither will get my vote.

So where are you putting the christmas tree?  :)
Working for a large corporation that positively goes in for positive discrimination, we are not allowed Christmas Trees for fear of upsetting other religions and beliefs.

I call bullshit on that - as there is a bloody great big tree on the tower at Adastral Park ;)
TB is positively not allowed a tree as there's no limit to who he might hang from it :D

TB with a real tree with real candles, what could possibly go wrong? ::) ::) ::) ::)

OOF seemed a bit slow earlier, so I just assumed the hamster in its yellow jacket had escaped and was rioting in Paris all weekend. ::) ::) ::)
We're currently back on SAS spinny drives for a bit, following a controller glitch on the SSDs (which are SATA)

Scratch chin, why would SSDs make a difference as I would expect the reverse with slower HDDs with possible queue buffer overflow?
It looked like the SATA controller lockup, rather than the SSD, but hard to prove, hence having non critical stuff on the SATA SSDs to get confidence back. Some of HPE's firmwares over the past couple of years do leave a lot to be desired :(

So we're on the SAS controllers, well away from anything SATA, for a bit.  None of the SAS stuff has shown any issues.

We do not use SATA hard drives, because they are universally rubbish when it comes to performance - I guarantee if I swapped out the SAS for SATA, we'd see disk latencies measured in seconds, once the caches were exhausted.

Keep talking sexy TB; send in the wonderful SAS they will usually win through and resolve all issues! :D :D :D ;)

Lizzies' disappointment is when TB's talking about floppy drives. :D :D ;D
