    It would seem that the idea all Americans have guns may be wrong. AMerica owns half the worlds guns but is only 5%. Of the world population. Only about 22 - 29% actually own the guns and 3% of the population own half the guns.

    Only.on your calendar! For everyone else Spring starts in March.

    No the graph changed from leave to remain depending on the questions in May/June last year. If you look back to the post I numbered a hour or so ago (I think it was #8206) I mention when they changed.

    I would agree with different years having different (for want of a better description) personalities. However it was also a little skewed to locality. I find the comment about Chernobyl interesting as a physics teacher I taught with could identify pupils from one of our "problem" areas by Geiger counter. He blamed it on the Radon in the rock below the village.

    Polls and statistics can be made to say anything. Well there's convenient isn't it? I would agree but when this is very poll by all poll organisations I would suggest perhaps more accurate than just a single poll. It isn't a single poll it is a graph showing the results of all polls since well before the referendum so probably slightly more accurate than any single poll.

    Baby goats have been more attractive, well mannered and well behaved than a number of kids I had to have in classes over the years.

    See #8206 with regard to why you had better ask the poll organisations it is they who decide to run these polls. I don't have the website at the moment but it was looking at all polls over time since well before the referendum.

    I would agree totally but some of the news media have been using the 18 and calling them school shootings.

    So that is why the polls are showing a majority in favour of remaining in the EU is it?

    There have been 18 occasions where a gun has been discharged on school premises this year (USA of course) with 8 of them resulting in death or injury.

    Whitehaven wasn't in a school and the comparisons were between gun discharge incidents in USA on school grounds and UK on school grounds.

    That may have been true once but I have just been looking back over opinion poll results. To the question "If there was a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, how would you vote?" You have to go back March to before there is a clear majority for leaving. To the question "If there was another referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, how would you vote?" you need to go back to June before there is a clear majority. The tide appears to have turned.

    It would appear some birds have started spring migration. The Cuckoos being satellite tracked by the BTO have started to move north. Still in sub Saharan Africa but have moved between 235 and 1315 miles north. Admittedly they have a long slow migration stopping to fatten up for day/weeks along the way, but they have started north.

    As the ECHR sprang from the European Convention on Human Rights coming into force in September 1953 (long before we were in the EU) could somebody explain in simple terms for me why leaving the EU removed the protection of the court?

    The advice given by the disease control and prevention people is not to wash chicken. Do not wash raw chicken. During washing, chicken juices can spread in the kitchen and contaminate other foods, utensils, and countertops.
