    Still leaving.

    Also isn't the BBC right-wing biased? So I don't know why you would believe what they say?

    Still leaving, but for what purpose? A cynical hijacking of your childrens' future to compensate for losing an empire you never enjoyed?

    The BBC has bias but the total sum of the bias is basically neutral. Depends what they're reporting on and who is reporting on it.

    Many of these children voted for Leave and before that many of the children who voted to join the EEC have now voted to Leave.
    Only a fool would believe it was voting for the resurrection of an Empire. The EU is a sort of Empire itself, making rules that do not cater to different nations, differing characters.
    Instead of embracing diversity it wants to curtail it, squeeze it in its coils of bureaucracy in some half-hearted attempt to make a 1984 style utopia where people told what to think, what to do
    and what to hear, will do just that, just so the men at the top can be smug with the satisfaction that they are making the world a better place and more champagne please.

    If you believe the BBC is neutral then maybe you should listen to the total sum of its arguments instead of discarding the ones you dislike.

    A news outlet saying things you don't like doesn't mean it isn't providing an unbiased service over-all.

    If your own position is poorly thought out and based on misleading propaganda then you are going to hate a neutral review of the facts.

    Indeed, when many people say they want an unbiased neutral news source they of course mean biased in their direction saying things they agree with.

    Reminds be back before I disabled YouTube comments, whenever you'd end up on some retarded controversy baiting video you'd get one of the top comments with tons of lines "finally someone unbiased telling it like it is" which was always worth a chuckle.

    If by the BBC being balanced you mean that the comedians are all left-wing while the news people are all right-wing, then yes, it's very balanced.

    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    Latest round of wind farm contracts are out and they've halved the required guaranteed price. It's now on the order of 2/3 of that spent on Hinkley.

    RIP Nuclear.

    Yeah we will see how that goes once wind / solar represent a large % of energy generation. My bet is it will go similar as it happened in Germany. Price was so low that coal plants wanted to shut down and a law was brought in preventing them doing so. Because you know you actually need a stable power source.

    We will reliably generate energy by harvesting the body heat produced by fat nerds.

    Try and do the math on that. Going full solar/wind is unfeasible... We are far more likely see solar / wind being stuck at sub 20% share. Even that is better than nothing at least.
