    Cheap or efficient - pick one.

I'm sure the brexiteers love to go back to Victorian times and go back to the coal fuelled steam age.

    Also I see in some Facebook groups, I am member of, that many EU nationals are packing their bags.
    Just read some of the comments on this article and you see why: https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...ship-uk-brexit

    We don't need nuclear scientists, psychiatrists, lecturers, research scientists, nurses, fruit pickers ...
    Not if everyone is leaving, no.

    To be fair most schools in London have got better hence the North-South divide in exam results.

    Dunno, but you might want to have a look at the reasons why Britain joined the EU and that might with answering your question...

    I understand algebraic notation, but the long form (e.g. Ng1-f3) must surely be preferable when coding to the short form (e.g. Nf3), to avoid the occasional need to disamibguate (e.g. Ngf3). But I've never written a line of code in my life, so happy to be corrected. I would imagine in coding that even the piece descriptor ('N' for knight) is unnecessary and g1-f3 would adequately describe removing the piece that occupies square g1 and placing it on f3 (or perhaps removing the square g1 from the piece that occupies it and adding the square f3 to the piece - but that might be more complicated when managing captures??)

    I do like the idea of coding so may teach myself some when I retire.

    And, while I'm at it, I'm not also a huge fan of Mr Trump but making the leader of the most powerful country in the world the focus of the "daily hate" isn't exactly going to ensure we're first in the queue for a trade deal is it?
    And again, I'm forced to post the image that sums up your opinion perfectly....

    Well if you have any "manifold accomplishments" at all, humour isn't clearly one of them
