More decisive, but on your own terms certainly not "Ireland". Or even the Republic.

Anyway I assume you'll be hoping for a second referendum in a couple of years, so that the voters can change their mind if they want to? We all know how important that is. And of course don't forget, it's only advisory.


True about the advisory and knowing the poor state of Irish politics (matched by the UK) they will make an awful mess of legislation.

I about got things right today, riding out into the wind and coming back with it behind me. Really does make things a lot better. I also tried to pedal in a more relaxed manner and that appears to help to, I think I'm normally a bit too tense.
I didn't get the distance right though. Was aiming for 35 and ended up doing 45. Still, the legs aren't complaining, so I won't :)

It doesn't matter how decisive the vote was, we voted OUT.

For every 1 Vote to keep the status quo there were 2 votes for change.


Considerably more decisive than the Brexit vote!

It's benches as well I seem to remember...not great for the back!


I miss the vibe of standing (fairly) close to the stage but my fallen arches are bad and my feet hurt too much to put up with standing for hours on end

Field music!  Nice!  Report back!


It might have been more than 8/10 in a more intimate setting...or even if the seats were somewhere near the stage. I can't complain about value for money or the clarity of the sound; given the complexity of the arrangements and the wide dynamic range demands in performing with such a diverse variety of instruments the Barbican was probably one of the best auditoriums available, and must have cost the band a small fortune to hire, so top marks to them for that, but the ambience was pretty sterile in the circle..which possibly reflects the very middle class make up of the audience as much as my distance from the action.


I confess that I hadn't heard 75% of the set list but I shall be rectifying that as soon as funds permit. The huge array of  influences in their sound was amazing; elements of Peter Gabriel, XTC, Tears for Fears, Squeeze, Jelly Bean, Crowded House, The Tubes, Talking Heads, Scritti Political, Gentle Giant and The Beatles...and probably a few more hiding away in there still to be revealed upon further investigation...that they still manage to sound unique with all those musical reference points and touchstones is quite remarkable! The Horn and String sections really complemented and expanded their sound...I suppose you could legitimately describe their music as Progressive Poprock 😎
I will definitely make a point of catching them on their next tour (and get in early this time)

Many thanks to Hass and his mate Ali for the tickets 👍
8/10

Britain, not England is coming out of its shell, despite the best efforts of the little Europeans for wish our country to remain on its knees. Not going to happen.


The way Brexit is going the UK will end up on its belly
