If you're in the UK, pointing at USA ICE and child internment camps, remember Yarls Wood.
More headless chicken behaviour from Theresa May.
Extra NHS funding (just above inflation) will come from "Brexit Dividend".
Do they think we're stupid?
Do they really think we haven't worked out that a lie on the side of a bus is still a lie, no matter how many times you repeat it?

After Miller, Parliament voted to give the PM the authority to invoke Art50. Which the PM then duly did. What was never done was for Parliament to decide whether Art50 should be invoked.

Now a legal challenge may have confirmed this and that Art50 wasn't Parliament's choice, it was the PM's alone.

Why does excess demand on the electricity power grid result in a drop in frequency? And why are frequency fluctuations used as a proxy for demand-supply mismatches?
In these days of solar/wind, HVDC links and so on, with high power AC-DC-AC converters, surely frequency is electronically maintained so why should it change at all?
As well as Imposter Syndrome, some times I worry I'm trying too hard. Am I just being an annoying old git with a superficial air of certainty when I ought to just shut up a bit and listen.
