Stop Press! Oxford University Mathematics and Economics Professors Support Cottingham.tv’s assertions

UK Economy ‘has blossomed within the EU’

J DOYNE FARMER (Professor of Mathematics), Sir DAVID HENDRY (Professor of Economics), DR MAX ROSER (Project Director, Institute for New Economics Thinking), Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford.

Letters to the Editor, The Times, Thursday, June 7th, 2016

Oxford Professors support Cottingham.tv’s assertions – we’re better off staying in!

With barely 3 weeks to go – do you think the mainstream broadcasters havn’t quite got it yet? 

12 (more) questions Cottingham.tv puts to ….

Q 1. Should we place our blind faith and trust the UK National Democracy to manage our affairs?

Q 2. And particularly ask: are our elected representatives with all their vested interests going to protect the public interest or place their own first?

Q 3. We should further ask: why would those with certain vested political interests seek to abolish the European Bill of Human Rights and replace it with our own, further to going without one, whilst our neighbours have enshrined theirs in Law for decades?

Q 4. Why has the UK establishment repeatedly failed to manage its economy over the decades since WW2?

Q 5. We should further ask: under existing (UK) democratic governance our aviation industry severely declined in the ’60s, the automotive industry followed in the ’70s, all the strife and class-ridden inequality in the ’80s, with issues of corruption abuse and bribery in other organisations only now surfacing, several decades later?

Q 6. Would those priviliged ‘the few’ who insist they are ‘on the side of the many’ risk plunging us back into all the post-war austerity decades we suffered prior to joining Europe?

A. For those of you who can remember, it took a good decade before the benefits of European membership started to become widespread over here

Q 7. We should further ask: subsequently to joining Europe in the mid-70s did not our economy turn the tide and economic conditions for the many get significantly better?

Q 8. Is the reason our manufacturing industry (especially automotive) is so successful today precisely because we have enjoyed substantial foreign investment and management practises as well as worker migration into the UK, not in spite of it?

Q 9. If we vote to leave the EU, would our industry base, seen as a gateway into Europe by many international foreign investors manufacturers and exporters from further afield be deserted, causing collapse of our financial services industry?

Q 10. If we vote to leave, will the Humber Region with its Billion Pound Inward European Investment from Siemens and Dong Energy turn into a decline – and would those “I’m alright Jack”, little Englander Exiteers with their vested interests even care?

Q 11. Back to trust: just why are some of our democratic representatives assumedly with those same vested self-interests supporting an escallating £ 78 billion ‘cost-plus’ investment in our future UK nuclear power station and placing their blind trust in an un-democratic unaccountable foreign power to build it?

A. If you do the maths, you can buy an awful lot of solar panels for this which now cost less than $1.0 per watt of solar electricity generated! I can take you through the costings step by step as an experienced environmental technology businessman

Q 12. If Germany can opt out of nuclear, why can’t we?

A 1. Germany can rely on the collective will of Europe to defend its economic and social interests, whereas if we go it alone, we may be left with the enormous £78bn bill to find – how would we finance such a sum? Would ‘the few’ be prepared to foot the bill for ‘the many’?!

A 2. What’s sauce for the gander: Germany and Northern Europe generally have a more scientific and technically literate democratic leadership than we do the UK, so I tend to believe them on balance when they say they can manage without nuclear!

A 3. If we left Europe, our Pound will likely plummet internationally and we would then not be able to pay for our escallating nuclear programme! The Chinese would indeed then have us over a barrel! If we vote to stay in Europe, we can hold onto our hard-won right to wield the nuclear deterrent by proxy as currently, thereby helping to retain our global policeman’s role in the World, military intelligence, armed forces, respect from the other super-powers.

Keith Hunter Interview by Cottingham.tv in Christchurch Community Coffee

He will be publicly accountable to each and all of of us as if elected as our representative commissioning the police

We’d like to have also quizzed him about traffic management including pedestrian cyclist and road safety, given the speed restrictions and limited cycle paths and  also given the serious road accidents we’ve had just in the last couple of days including Eppleworth/Raywell (Thursday) and yesterday (Friday) in Spring Bank in Hull days just after the interview.

Serious crime including gun-carrying appears to be mainly limited to West Yorkshire, with a few exceptions

Flu and cold: the Grim Reaper of our Old!

Lotions and Potions

If you know someone old,

who has a cough and is cold,

they might also have flu,

so help them keep warm,

and drink plenty of fluids,

to stave off those druids!

And let their doctor know too!

And let Covonia take the strain,

of their stoical old-moania,

before it turns into pneumonia!

Cottingham Civic Hall, 6th. Feb

Arts & Crafts Fair Today – pan right

Today in the Cottingham Civic Hall: Admission just 50p!

On the lookout for Marine Art

The editor’s favourites:  marine oil paintings! (UK Royal Society of Marine Artists)

East Yorkshire’s Marine Artists

“Catch me if you can” Contemporary Artist Adrian C. Rigby (sold for $25,000)

Had the editor the resources, he would cover his walls with original, antique, contemporary, 20th Century, classical and naive marine oil paintings. They are however quite valuable now and over the last few decades at least  highly collectible both Nationally and internationally!

Note: it’s a “Bears Market” for art collectors currently so now’s your chance to snap up some potential longer-term investments!

The editor settles for stamps and prints instead – which for all intents and purposes fulfill his interest as an art ethusiast rather than a collector for investment reasons

First Day Editions Stamp Collection

The Editor also wanted to recover his lost “first editions” stamp collection he started with his mother’s assistance from the age of about 8, as collected over his teenage years from the Hull Stamp Shop, then located on the top of Princess Avenue near the junction with Spring Bank. A sample above which he bought today which he is thinking of mounting in a picture frame.

Many of the stamps are worth little more than they were bought for some 50 years on taking inflation into account, but stamp collections are considered as a very long term investment and the market may turn eventually.. but look out for the rare Victoria “Penny Black”!

There are a number of societies catering for local art and collectors in the region including NADFAS, Hull & East Riding Antiques & Fine Arts Society – and the Myton Gallery in Hiull’s Silver Street Arcade is difietely worth a visit for collectors of marine art and the history of marine art in the region!
