Brexit again

Total chaos from the Government today.

After several days of parilamentary discussion about the proposed Brexit deal, all 800+ pages of it, there was to be a vote. It’s a compromise deal, has to be, and hardly anyone likes it.

Mrs May realised the vote would be lost, she would have to step down and Boris Johnson would become PM. In her arrogant need for power, she simply cancelled, rather postponed indefinitely, the vote.

MPs are not pleased. The conutry is in melt down. There is nonsensical discussion about another referendum. I am not sure what that would achieve, whatever the result may be.

At some point there will be a vote of no confidence in Mrs May or the Government. Probably it will be lost.


The country is in a real mess. The UK Conservative government is in chaos. The news about Brexit dominates everything else, and, after nearly two years of negotiation, we seem to be no nearer any conclusion.

I don’t understand why Prime Minister hangs on. Actually, I never understood why she took the job in the first place. I suppose it was just a big ego trip for her.

Now the government have been found in contempt of Parliament, for the first time ever in all of history. They held back what appeared to be important information that apparently they should have disclosed.

Meanwhile, Brexit will happen, deal or no deal. Those of us who said two years ago that it would be a total shambles have been proved correct. It is the start of bad times for the UK.

So stupid

I have discovered a new word to be banned from the English language. It is ‘so’, especially when people are asked questions, thus:

Q: What job do you do, Fred?

A: So, I used to be a doctor…

Q: Emma, what are your hobbies?

A: So, I used to have a cat that loved sardines…

It add nothing to anything. All people who start sentences with this word should disappear…


“I have a white hat”.

Let’s suppose the winner, you, are A, and the others are B and C.

You could say, by probability, there are more white than black so white is more likely. Or that three identical hats is the only fair test. But that’s a guess, not a deduction.

So, let’s work it out. If two of them have black hats, the third would know immediately he had a white hat, there would be no pause and the problem is over. But that doesn’t happen, so there is at most one black hat.

If you were A and you saw a black hat (say B) and a white hat (C), then you would know you had a white hat, because C does not see two black hats. If he did, he would answer instantly.

If you were A and you saw two white hats (B and C), you would have to put yourself in, say, B’s position. If you (A) had a black hat on, B sees a black (A) and a white (C), realises that C doesn’t know so C must see a black and a white, so B would know the answer and would say he had a white. But he doesn’t, so you don’t have a black hat on, so it must be white.
