Re: EU terms for an Article 50 extension

So, does the extension run until midnight on 11th April or midnight on 12th April? Seems staffers in the EU aren't sure. I don't think it really matters a great deal. A day of delay in appointing returning officers surely can be overcome. What matters is that it is quite clear how much sovereignty ...

Re: Hurricane Energy (HUR)

Unfortunately, I didn't understand a word of that! No criticism, just that I have no technical knowledge of oil production, so having seen the presentation is what you've discovered good or bad from an investor's point of view?

Re: Brexit all over?

So the question is, which do we want - to regain total control or avoid financial pain? The deception is pretending that we can achieve both. The UK operates within an increasingly rules-based globalized economy where things become ever more standardized; a growing proportion of the EU's single mar...

otm, It is possible that lidar will be like fuel cells. Lots of good progress, but other things progress faster (BEV), and so ultimately it gets set aside as a mass-produced technology (much to my surprise btw).
