Are you and "in" or an "out"?

Posted: Yesterday at 17:04

Not everyone Westy.

My wife voted 'leave' because she's from New Zealand.

 When Britain entered the EEC all bilateral agreements between New Zealand and Britain had to be terminated. Preferential treatment of British imports into New Zealand ended in 1977.

This meant her country got shafted.

Others voted out, not because they thought they would be better off financially, but because by remaining they knew they wouldn't be. After all, they had only been waiting since 1974.

I did ok financially by some sort of accident of exchange rates. Only on paper mind. Meaningless numbers.

Of course not, but this isn't all about money. It's about perceptions. It's about the sort of country and world you want to live in.

Well that's a nice wish, however, no one has control over these things.

No, it's all about money. It's the cornerstone of everyone's existence no matter how much they kid themselves it isn't.

Has anyone's life fallen through the floor yet because of this vote?

Ok, I'm aware that anyone shifting money out of Sterling across the worlds ponds on Thursday night got buggered, but that's about it.

cougie - you've illustrated valid reasons for 'yourself' wanting to remain 'in'. And that is most likely the source of the fury of plenty of those who voted 'remain'.

 The 'remains' voted that way as they believed they had valid reasons for doing so. The 'leave' result would really affect them.

So from that, it sticks in the throat to be tripped up by people who voted to leave when they knew the result wouldn't actually affect them at all either way.

What's the perceived profile of someone who voted out?

Out of curiosity.

How does this decision actually affect your lives right now?

Runner's lie? Cheating rumors didn’t stop Robert Young – but something else did

The Strava stuff is easily manipulated. For running feats just cycle along nice and slow.

To smash a Strava section one needs the help of two people thus:

1) Run to the start of the chosen sector.

2) Hand over the device to a cyclist who operates at around 13mph for as long as it takes.

3) The runner now gets a lift from a motorist who overtakes the cyclist and is now is position to take the device from the cyclist at the end of the sector.

4) With the device, the runner carries on the cheat run.


Would anyone really go that far? yup!
