Ex-minister hits out at campaigners pushing for a fresh vote

Boris Johnson has accused supporters of a second Brexit referendum of “doing the work of the Scottish National party” by making a second Scottish independence vote more likely and threatening the union.

In a speech in Aberdeen on Friday, the former foreign secretary and perennial Conservative leadership hopeful sought to turn the tables on remainers who argue that Brexit would increase the risk of a second independence referendum.

Parcel bombs sent to Glasgow University and London airports


I honestly understand why the yet undetected suspect chose places in London - certainly to express one's disliking of which route the Brexit negotiations current, take -, but why Glasgow University, obviously a Scottish University? I am certainly unaware of the reason why to choose a target in Scotland? I mean, this country used to be Ireland's ally, Scotsmen as well as Irish expatriates who used to live there came to help the Irish when the English used to assail them again. Also, the SNP still tries to accomplish a permission to hold its own independence referendum to leave the kingdom behind, to stay in the EU after Brexit.
If anyone of you has an idea what could be the reason, share it in the comments. Until then, I rest unaware.

Resharing from Mastodon because I think some of my #gplusrefugees friends on #diaspora have probably been thinking lately about on how/if to preserve their old incarnation. The focus of the attached article is really about the ability to remember someone who has died, but it brings up some good points about the impact of even having a social media footprint to preserve.

Personally, I'm a bit mortified (pardon the play on words) that any of my old social media lives on. It's highly unlikely that I've said anything particularly literary or timeless. Even today, I cringe at the thought of going back to read my old Live Journal posts. That was an anxious, young woman that needed a hug and regular help not driving off of an emotional cliff.

I have no desire to live on in someone's memory as a collection of snapshots. However, I would like a way for my virtual connections to get notified of my demise an... Show more...

The “recumbent stone circle” in the parish of Leochel-Cushnie, Aberdeenshire, was reported by the site’s current farm and was considered unusual for its small diameter and relatively small stones.
Historic Environment Scotland and Aberdeenshire council’s archaeology service celebrated it as an authentic discovery and continued their research until being contacted by the former owner who said they had built it as a replica in the mid-1990s.

48 Letters & a vote of confidence


Separately, many opposition MPs have urged Labour leader Jeremy #Corbyn to call for a Commons vote of no confidence in the government, although he has so far resisted.

And he did:

May cancels cabinet meeting and talks with Irish Taoiseach ahead of the vote.

One can tell that it is getting boiling hot for her. If the 158 Tory members will choose to vote against her, it's over for her, no matter what she says how dangerous it becomes for the Brexit when there will be a change of leadership. At least many of us might think it's probably going to be a No-Deal-Brexit.

This person's 45-tweet rant about the imperial system is hilariously relatable


If you've ever found yourself somewhat confused by the logic of the imperial system — you know, pounds, ounces, all that good stuff — you're not alone.

Because unlike the more modern metric system, which is fairly logical when it comes to the way different measures and weights are broken down, the imperial system just seems a bit... messier.

I suppose if you grow up using the Imperial system you get used to all the odd amounts that get divided by to arrive at half measures etc. Anyway this is still quite a hilarious read at https://mashable.com/article/imperial-system-angry-rant/ especially now that the metric kilogram has been redefined.

A part of me would like to do horrible things to these arrogant bastards. 😠

'In the colonial era, most of India’s sizeable foreign exchange earnings went straight to London—severely hampering the country’s ability to import machinery and technology in order to embark on a modernisation path similar to what Japan did in the 1870s.'
