    Thanks I may have missed the significance of that. I just saw the (what I feel to be clichéd at this point) clumps of men charging at each other in open ground and thought "Here we go again..." :)

    I've seem most of "The Battle of Brest". Unfortunate there is one cringe-inducing scene where the Russians leave perfectly good cover to go hand-to-hand with the Germans, who of course oblige instead of dropping and shooting the Russians as they approach. The same thing happened in a French...

    The British European Referendum

    Big surprise. Tories are prepared to destroy the village in order to...er...save it. They'd also like to sell their cow for some WTO magic beans.

    The British European Referendum

    ...and lose the access to the markets that is paid for by those contributions. The losses here are already being felt as FDI in the Eurozone increases, while it decreases in the UK. ...which they already are. Not that it would make much difference, since the UK has voted in favour of 88%-95%...

    The British European Referendum

    It's what happens when a country decides to cut off its economic nose to spite its face. What cards would the UK now hold if the cabinet, civil service and parliament were Brexiteer? What leverage did the UK have over the EU that was given away?

    The British European Referendum

    Not really. The vote was never meant to be binding, it was just that the Tories promised they would implement the decision, so there are three scenarios in which Brexit might be stopped: 1. A new vote including the option of remaining. If remain was the choice, that would be democratic by...
