This is what I find totally unacceptable. ...Hopefully it will be contained.... I don't hope it will be contained. I hope for the opposite. I hope it makes it out of Africa. I think the simplest solution is that if the moderators believe that this is an acceptable part of discourse that I resign fro...

I think it is particularly awful to want a load of Africans to die from Ebola. There are some good people who post in this forum, but frankly I do not want to associate in any way with people who have such awful views.

None of this is sufficiently rational to warrant trying to debate it.

The Assange travesty is coming to a head, I suspect. In the sense that he will leave the Embassy, be arrested for breach of bail conditions probably go to jail for a couple of years and then be released. I did deal with some people who escaped from the UK to Zimbabwe who were living in the Zimbabwe...

In the UK the Government nationalised and part nationalised a number of banks to prevent their customers from suffering. This is wrongly described as "bailing out the banks".

I think Trump is an idiot. However, I have not changed my mind on this since the first time I came to a view.

This is a good example.

Al Jazeera offer a different perspective as well. RT are as I understand it funded externally so I would not expect them to disappear merely because other outlets started putting people on air that are not on air at the moment.

Solar recorded at about 9GW, about 30% of demand, and on a quiet sunday afternoon, the biggest single source of electricity for about an hour. I remember the battles with the government in about 2008 when they were opposing the feed in tariff in Europe and trying to stop Germany having a feed in ta...

Are you suggesting it is a good or bad thing for the people who are already living in a country to have unlimited immigration? To me it is obvious that we should have limits on immigration. I have probably said this in this forum a number of times. It is not an issue I have changed my view on over ...

No news here, just pure propaganda.
He was probably making it up as he was going along. That is not necessarily propaganda, but sometimes people give answers when they don't really know the answer.

If you are going to have a rule of law there has to be a system for determining legal decisions. As it currently stands that requires "legal consultants" and hence describing such as a "bullshit job" is wrong. This is a profound psychological violence here. How can one even begin...

It is often the case that numbers are wrongly reported by factors of integral powers of 1,000. (including negative ones)

In the end, however, we probably need to wait for a formal statement from OPCW to get any clarity.

True. Hence it is important where possible to give original sources.
