I didn't watch it, but know how it ends. That is annoying. The same goes for The CItizen Kane :cry: . Maybe I should try to erase my memories with alcohol (preferably away from woods and airports).

I was mistaken...

The movie Logan's Run has some similarities (including approximate year of release).

It involves cowboys ignoring procedure.

... these are the same youngsters that voted for Boaty McBoatface.



From where I sit on the otherside of the world, I get the impression that there wasn't a lot of thought given to what if Brexit won, that the referendum didn't indicate what would happen and when. All it has done is give a suggestion that government should take steps to exit the EU, hence the uncertainty.

This.
Could now see Scotland press for independence again as a pro EU country and the reunification of Ireland.Leaving Wales & England as an inward looking, backward looking county permanently governed by Trump-lite politicians.
