There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Kismet, I am still interested why you have chosen a picture of Louis Farrakhan as your avatar.

Farrakhan seems to be a man of quite extreme, and variable, views. Do you support his ideas or is this some kind of ironic or satirical statement ?

Bit lost on Solus' current avatar being a sci-fi image!

Can't seem to find a format for it that will work in Google Image Search either - damn.

There have been "science-fiction" stories that are set in days gone by - even cowboy stories! But this one has me beat.

Go, on, Solus, be, er, humanist and let us into the story!
