    Boudicca lives forever, aren't the Welsh the remains of the original English?

    The Welsh are reckoned to be one of the purest races, far more so than the Scots or English. It was such a hard country to invade.

    I have been searching on the www to find some answers as to who were the original Brits and there are so many different theories some going back to when Adam was a cowboy, you can find one to suite whatever you want to believe, and not even one small peep at Wiki. Interesting but ....................

    We are preparing for the "unbiased " referendum as to whether we should pull out of the EU. Unbiased apart from the wagon load od c**p we are being bombarded with as to why we should remain in. That idiot Obama is even sticking his oar in telling us its the best thing for us. I would like to see America being run by a bunch of unelected idiots whos sole interest was to line their own pockets. But out and put your own country to rights.

    Russia has given Fiji a large amount of weapons?
    Fiji is controlled by the Army and has internal problems such as the native Fijians and the imported Indians, it is also a prime position in the pacific for a Russian base. here we go again.
    I am with you teddy plus the big boys should stay at home.
    Why do I get the feeling that the arms manufactures hate peace.

    We already have them ... except they are elected without any term limits whatsoever. Congress has its own private retirement plan, its own private medical plan, both of which are paid for with taxpayer dollars and which nobody else on earth can even get ... that along with annual raises in pay even when the cost of living did not rise for 2016. Those of us who are pensioners did not get a raise for 2016, but still have to pay taxes to support a group of idiots who vote raises for themselves.

    I'm all for term limits on any elected office. The President of the US can only hold office for two terms ... 8 years ... and then he's out. Senators and Congress also needs to have the same term limits ... too many "good ol' boys" hanging on until they die. Sad.

    Too right Colin, no matter who you vote for big business multinationals will tell the government what to do (and who to do it to!)

    So much for an unbiased referendum on leaving the EU. The government, or at least the few in government who want to stay in, have sent a booklet to every household in the country full of lies about how good the EU is. Cost to the taxpayer £9,000,000 pounds. It is so inaccurate it could have been written by Enid Blyton. I despair

    that's because we have to stand back, alone,
    out of respect, out of a fearfull love,
    knowing an awefull responsibility,
    when the skies open, to ask us to diffuse our ability.
    It's a source that makes all our wattage flow,
    and no, we can't re-fuse.

    John watt = percy amp × ivor volt
    or
    W = A × V

    What is power consumption in john watt when the current is 3 A and the voltage supply is 110V?
    Answer: the total weight of a cucumber
    P = 3A × 110V = 330W
    The real power P in watts (W) is equal to the zero PF times the phase current I in amps (A), times the RMS (Regimental major Sergent) voltage V in volts (V):
    P(W) = PF ×I(A)× V(V)
    So all the watts are equal to power factors times amps times volts:
    watt = PF ×amp × volt
    or
    W = PF ×A × V
    Example
    What is power consumption in watts when the power factory is 0.8 and the phase current is 3A and the RMS voltage supply is 110 V?
    Answer: the power P is equal to power factor of 0.8 times current of 3 amps times voltage of 110 volts.
    P = 0.8 × 3A × 110V = 264W

    Just goes to show WATT a college education does for you.

    I think Russia and to a lesser degree China would love to see the EU collapse, but it does need an overhaul and perhaps gates put on the channel tunnel, and what to do with the refugees?

    I have stopped listening to referendum broadcast as they depress me with all the **** being talked, particularly by the REMAIN side. We have been threatened with every disaster bar a plague of frogs. I have never heard so much rubbish talked in my life. I will be glad when June the 23rd arrives. If we stay in the EWU I want to see the House of Commons downgraded to half a dozen members. That should be enough to rubber stamp Brussels dictates.

    @ John I assume you are referring to a “Basic Income” for all citizens rich and poor, it is being suggested by many countries see following link
    https://www.google.co.nz/search?clie...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    I don’t know much about the details but I just can’t see it happening. It is a grand idea but ideology will stifle discussion, also why should Mr A work 50 hrs a week to enable Mr B to sit on his A*$ all day watching the TV with a bottle of beer. Let me add that I am not a right winger more of a socialist me!

    @ teddy How about the House of Lords that must be as bad.
