    True, but in divulging the reason for declining the sale the sellers went beyond that into the realm of making a public statement, and a disciminatory one. So the sale aspect then became almost irrelevant.

    In other words, they could equally well have just publicly declared "I refuse...

  • There are two basic types of infra red (IR) night vision systems: Active, where the kit illuminates the scene, as if shining an IR torch, and Passive where it relies solely on IR radiation transmitted from the scene being viewed.

    Passive is better for many purposes, especially where stealth...

  • Advice to a young person wishing to get into web design

    One of my nieces finished a graphic design course, or similar, a year or two ago and now would like to get into web design or programming somehow, and is seeking advice.

    I don't think she has much, if any, experience with programming per se, e.g. JavaScript or PHP etc, and in my experience...

    replied to Lying to parliament a resigning matter!
    If I was a politician in a public interview like that I would point out that the situation was hypothetical (if the interviewer hadn't explicitly stated that) and never ever comment on it, because if contentious it would be sure to be mysteriously linked, or "promoted" in itself, to a current...

    As I recall, the statues are in a ghastly boxy Stalinesque style, and show naked young children, not that the latter is necessarily a problem per se. But also the sculptor, Eric Gill raped his young daughters (or maybe his nieces, not sure) and even, if you can believe it, the family dog!

    I seriously wonder if all this hooha wasn't a crafty set up engineered by that civil servant who actually organised the party, knowing that it would completely discredit Boris when news of it emerged, so he would have to resign and hopefully be replaced by a remainer prime minister. Civil servants are...

    Beneath your feet below the street was a sixty foot deep pile of rubble of Old St Pauls, which Christopher Wren, the hooligan, blew up with gunpowder to make way for his new upturned tit! I reckon they could easily have saved most of the old cathedral had they wished, although to be fair some of it...

    He was probably prewarned about associating with a disreputable rascal like Epstein and technically underage girls, especially in the US.

    If so, or even if not because anyone with an ounce of sense would realise anyway, the arrogant fool has only himself to blame. ...

    Sounds like the same mistake as when the White Tower was first built in the 1080s.

    It was staggeringly impractical and uncomfortable, because William the Conqueror was paranoid about security. There was only one entrance, set high up in a wall, with a passage just wide enough for...
