  • So sorry to hear about your problems Jocko.  All the very best for a speedy recovery, and I really hope the pain eases very soon.  It must be really miserable for you and you have my every sympathy.Cheers, Reg.

  • Kevin Peat posted: I've noticed in my research that the Working Time Directive (the EU version of employment law) only stipulates 20 days annual leave. The Working Time Regulations 1998 (the UK version of employment law) stipulates 28 days.  To be h…
  • The one thing that the Brexiters haven't shared is the "record number of escapees from the Eurozone" against the general migration within the rest of the EU.  Completely meaningless without an EU wide census providing a snapshot of who's living wher…
  • Well, we'll see one way or another in a few years time.If we come out once you've stopped all the immigration you'll still be left with crap working conditions - bit confused why you raise the point about lack of industrial action due to immigrants …
  • Given the performance of successive UK Governments since the early 1970's I'd be willing to give someone else a go.  I am in no way surprised a very large number of Scots want to leave the Union and give an alternative form of non Westminster Govern…
  • It's struck me that for most people, whatever the annual contribution from the UK to the EU is whether before or after rebate, it's still a very large number.  Perhaps I get blasé about billions of pounds because that is what I used to deal with at …
  • There's two scenarios at play here.  Either you actually believe this, or you really do think the people on this forum are idiots.The discussion on value for money we get from the EU, which is an entirely valid discussion (although I can almost guar…
  • Sorry, the Brexit campaign is treating people as if they are F*ckwits through repeating claims time and time again that have had holes blown in them months and months ago.  They still have the £350m a week plastered all over their campaign bus.  If …
  • The pics from your weekend in Liverpool looked good as well Derek.

  • Been a bit tardy doing the video editing from the last concert, but I've finally got round to it (meaning I've finished the list of jobs Mrs Sox recently gave me - I thought I was retired).Ken Nicol in concert on 13th May:Excellent evening full of F…

  • Why not do a side by side comparison playing the same piece on both your Shines?Basically the same music, same player, same guitar, only difference is the pick-ups.Rarely get to hear that sort of comparison and it will serve to highlight what sort o…
  • As Terry said - lovely neat job.  Look forward to hearing your gig report withI was a tad dubious regarding the price/quality combination of those hand wired pickups when you were initially looking at them, but I'm very happy for you to prove that m…
  • Sure as hell that our Government wouldn't do it if we come out of the EU.Regarding that earlier poster post, I saw an amusing quote on the subject of "immigrants stealing our jobs".  It was a requote (much like this) so unfortunately I can't provide…
  • Yep, it's a disgusting poster.It's about on a par with all the Brexit messaging that basically says if you vote remain you're a f*ckwit.It's why I've consistently said I think the various campaigns of both sides have little merit.  It's why I've con…
  • Kevin Peat posted:Reg - Regulate vaping by all means ... but not by the expedience of existing tobacco laws. Such short cuts will lead to all sorts of trouble. In any case. What's wrong with our own parliament doing it ? Are there not enough MPs and…
  • Jocko posted:Is Reg Sox a pseudonym for  Jean-Claude Juncker?I'm Neelie Kroes in drag.  Actually, she's got quite a good sense of humour.  I was in a meeting with her about six months after the initial Snowden thing broke and she described spying as…
  • It's an evolution of smoking, and tobacco is the traditional vehicle for smoking.  As I said before, it's expediency.  I would be entirely surprised if delivery of various recreational drugs is not available via vaping if you knew where to look.Stil…
  • Kevin Peat posted:How on earth a non-tobacco product comes under the Tobacco Product Directive (TPD) beats me. So inhaling vapour is to be regulated in the same way as inhaling tobacco. Under a directive specifically aimed at tobacco. About the only…
  • I'm the wrong side of the north/south divide to truly appreciate the difference, as is the whole of Westminster.  I suspect most other southerners also don't truly appreciate the difference.What you've done is illustrate beautifully the absolutely d…
  • I largely agree with your last posts Kevin (wonders will never cease).  The problem with Africa is largely corruption.  That needs curing.  I see the answer to that and the Arab issue is by creating large trading blocs such as the EU with enough cri…
  • My point is that you think it's limited to the EU, and some sort of fault of the EU.It's not.Whether it's refugees, immigrants, or a country's own population is not really the point.  The reality is that there's massively growing disparity between t…
  • Kevin Peat posted:Reg. No. You don't need to explain yourself so thank you - for explaining yourself."For you the construct of national borders is important, for me as a member of the Human Race before being a European, then British, and finally Eng…
  • Kevin, perhaps you should travel to San Francisco home of Silicon Valley, one of the richest regions in the world, and see the level of depravity there as the welfare state has been systematically unpicked.  I've regularly travelled to both Italy (a…
  • Kevin, I don't need to explain anything.I have previously explained that this is purely my personal view based on my own research, much of which occurred during the course of my pre-retirement work that involved quite a bit of socio-political analys…
  • The key thing for me about the S&Ds is that they are fighting for change within the EU, including reform from within, and better regulation of big and dominant business.  I actually think they are more classically Liberal than what we might inte…
  • Pretty condescending post Kevin.  I've presented my personal reasons for why staying in is my desire previously.  Not sure why I need to repeat myself?  I'm not getting into the game of parroting the remain campaign's reasons, nor countering point b…
  • Thanks for speaking on my behalf.  Your paraphrasing is complete bollocks of course.
  • You have to make your own mind up Jocko.  However, I think from a Scottish independence POV, if that is still desirable to you the Out vote might be sensible because an independent Scotland is more likely with the UK out of the EU.  So I could see y…
  • How many British senior civil servants that run all the departments of British Government are elected?  Same number as EU commissioners.  It's the civil servants and hoards of lawyers that draw up the laws, not our elected MPs slaving away in their …
