  1. With campaigns for both sides having started up, thought I'd open a thread for discussion of the UK's upcoming referendum to remain or leave the European Union. In the words of The Buzzcocks Clash, should we stay or should we go? Are you in a quandary to vote in favour of staying, even if that means siding with Tony Blair and David Cameron? Will Caroline Lucas' decision to vote for staying hurt any re-election chances she may have even if she is on the winning side? (See Labour in Scotland). Would we be better off leaving? What happens if the constituent parts of the UK vote differently? What interventions can we expect from the international community? So many questions distilled down to "Leave" or "Remain". Bound to be quite a few personalities involved and no doubt some social media abuse hurled about - like the Isle of Man flag, this thread has legs. Let's fire the starting pistol.

    British Character Actors

    Death Notice for actor and director Philip Grout: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/thetimes-uk/obituary.aspx?n=phillip-grout&pid=192603974 Best known for the 1961 series Family Solicitor, with appearances in more familiar shows such as Harpers West One, The Rag Trade and Emergency-Ward 10. Seems to have been quite the theatre luvvie, but I don't know enough to stick him in that thread. Looks like he's "graduated" from Denville Hall.

    Donald J Trump

    When Barr's microphone cut out on the announcement of the Mueller Report, I thought he was redacting his own speech! Anyhow, interesting that there is still speculation because he's making his speech before anyone (apart from Whitehouse and personal Trump counsel) have seen it. It sounds like there's damning evidence on obstruction, but Barr seems to imply that either Trump was too dumb or was so frustrated and under pressure he made decisions that were not intentionally criminal. White, elite privilege? Is it a matter of time that Barr also falls foul of the Trump firing machine, regardless of his obvious blind loyalty? Used to be mud stuck......

    Rylan co-hosting It Takes Two with Zoe Ball. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6935461/Strictly-Come-Dancing-Rylan-Clark-Neal-join-forces-Zoe-Ball-Takes-Two.html I'm assuming she needs the help given her breakfast radio duties, but for God's sake, him? Sadly, he makes everything he appears in unwatchable. I decline to watch the spin off show henceforth.
