So let's get on with it. We must put the case for Brexit anew. We must take nothing for granted. It doesn't matter what we do with the money. We can put it in the NHS or buy pink elephants with it.

Paying all this money for "free trade" - what a contradiction in terms! And who benefits? Not the ordinary people who stump up the cash! And why, for this "free trade" do we have to let Brussels/ Strasbourg (EU have two Parliaments) make 59% of our laws? How does that work? Well, it doesn't.

"FDR's Folly"  by Jim Powell ISBN 0-7615-0165-7 January 10, 2009 (Note: I own and have READ all of this book) (...) Short review: A heavy read for us simple bears, written by an accomplished academic. It's bursting full of information, and very thought provoking. I like the lay out of the contents, where each of the 19 chapters asks a question, so you know...
Diary (7) "Chopper Down" January 5, 2009 When you hear a helicopter has crashed, your heart skips a beat. When you hear it is one that belongs to your company, you sit around in small groups of disconsolate pilots, wondering what the hell happened. Eight dead. Including both pilots. One surviving passenger critical. Massive media blitz. My wife emailed me at the...
