    "Microwave five minutes"...

    If I'm microwaving a potato, I put it on full for 5 mins, take it out, squeeze and add anything up to another 5 mins depending on that test.
  3. There's less stringent safety oversight on shampoo ingredients compared to foodstuffs as well.
  4. There's far more ingredients in shampoo than bottled water.
  5. Think about what's in fizzy water and then think about what's in shampoo.
  6. I'm sure you've put far worse things on your head; like shampoo.
  7. Because they want to try and keep it as pristine as possible. The principle there is that: whatever you go in with, you come back with; there is no long-term waste allowed.

    Is there not always some dishonesty in every political process? We are always 'done wrong' on the losers side.

    You don't think it would work out that way?

    The Border Wall or Fence

    What does anyone think of this strategy on letting Trump have his wall in this Reuters opinion piece. It's more thinking on the long game.It's about a five minute read. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mitchell-wall-commentary/commentary-why-trumps-border-wall-would-backfire-on-him-idUSKCN1PG25B

    Yes, there should have been a minimum difference; 55% would have been reasonable. It would have removed doubts of dishonestly-intended effects.

    It's a shame that wasn't specified, and also, very short-sighted to think it wasn't going to be binding, given the depth of feeling on both sides.

    We'll have to see, won't we? Principles and reality are often two different things. What shall we have: a best of 3?

    I don't know the law, so I can't answer the legal questions but on having another referendum after Brexit, in principle, that's probably fine because the outcome of the first referendum was executed and sufficient time has passed. Yes, the US system does have multiple votes but our respective systems are quite different in that respect, it seems. Yes, the democratic machine has done its job and needs to be followed through.

    Isn't that obvious? The ones who don't want to honour the outcome of the referendum. It disappoints me that you even ask that question.

    I think T. May would like to go back but she at least understands the point about honouring the referendum and has expressly said so several times. Some people have principles.

    Not cited? It's history not science. I quoted the salient part, so no need to go there if you don't want to. I can remember being annoyed myself then, and I was 10.

    There is much lamenting the skullduggery of the Leave campaign but consider the same in how we were conned into it: So, if one is to honour the original desires of the great majority of the populace of the day, we should leave. Some politicians fought hard to join; it was not the prevailing sentiment of the population.

    You are assuming the Russians had a significant enough effect, which I doubt. Regardless of my own feelings at the time, there was a very strong current for leaving.

    How do you work that one out?
