  1. Camera opinions

    What does she want to take photo's of, and is it likely to be an ongoing hobby/interest or just something to use for 'snapshots' when out? No one camera will cover 'all things for all people' so it's important to decide which route she wants to take before shelling out your hard earned cash.
  2. Sadiq Khan London Mayor

    No special news. It was clear to anyone paying attention that a vote to leave would mean leaving the single market and customs union. The country voted to leave. The fact that Theresa May is a **** poor negotiator doesn't change the result. Why do you feel there should be another vote on the single market when we had one last year?
  3. Sadiq Khan London Mayor

    We've already had a vote on it. It took place on 23rd June 2016, and the majority of people in the UK voted to leave both the single market and customs union. The issue has been well and truly put to bed.
  4. Artists

    Thanks everyone. Some great links to follow up. Making a decision is going to be pretty hard!! Once again, thanks to all who replied.
  5. Artists

    Morning all, I'm looking for an artist who can do me a picture of a hare in either paint or pencil. About A4 in size. Happy to pay the going rate (less PW discount obviously ). So what can you do chaps and chapesses?
  6. Daily Mail

    I'm sick of all the drivel in the Guardian... which is why I don't read it.
  7. Brexit - Merged Threads

    Wow... so on average it'll cost an extra 64p per person to feed a family of 8 compared to last year. I think this calls for another referendum... I doubt even Nick Clegg saw this one coming!!
  8. Can't say Happy Christmas!

    They got a good deal there Archie... Ramadan lasts a month!!
  9. Brexit - Merged Threads

    I've misrepresented nothing. They are NOT true quotes, the are misconstrued and out of context by the person who made the video. They are the quotes you used to back an argument you were making (you didn't use the full context of the quotes to 'say something else' because you didn't know the full context until after I posted the video) so yes, as the man in the video was wrong and you used his false narrative to back your argument, you are wrong too. You've used false information to push your point... in exactly the same way Open Britain did with their video. I think it's probably best you leave it.
  10. Brexit - Merged Threads

    Where did I say he didn't look very good? I said he failed to justify the video he'd been a part of making when confronted with the fact that he'd deliberately misquoted people to strengthen his argument. That's not an ad hominem. The argument is simple... was the video put out by Open Britain a true and honest account of what the people it showed had said about Brexit? The answer is No, it wasn't. No conflation, no strawman argument and no ad hominem. Simply put, you took quotes and passed them off as fact. The same quotes as were used by Open Britain and were shown to be false. Why don't you just admit you fell for the lies of Open Britain without checking out the full facts?
  11. Brexit - Merged Threads

    I'm not conflating anything. You used those quotes to supposedly back your argument that the main players wanted a soft Brexit. Those quotes were taken out of context and skewed by Open Britain to deliberately deceive. The quotes, had they been shown in their entirety, did not show that they wanted a soft Brexit. Which in turn renders your argument false. I'll ask again, where was my ad hominem attack?
  12. Brexit - Merged Threads

    Where is my ad hominem attack? My point is quite simple. You used a number of quotes earlier which had been taken out of context and in part, and passed them off as fact. I don't know where you got the quotes from originally (although I could hazard a guess) but they were debunked in the video I posted. Do you not now accept that the quotes you used erroneously were at best misleading, or as likely intended, were designed to deceive the public?
  13. Brexit - Merged Threads

    You didn't watch the video did you? And if you did where is the ad hominem argument... and what has Andrew Marr got to do with anything?
  14. Brexit - Merged Threads

    These 'quotes' were taken deliberately out of context and used by Nick Cleggs Open Britain group. Here's his former director of communications trying (and failing miserably) to justify himself and the video. It's a fantastic watch... I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
  15. Is vaping bad for you

    We're surrounded by chemicals in just about everything we eat and drink. You know the OP was claiming e-cigs are full of harmful chemicals... which they're not.
