Re: Sharecast Forward Yield weirdness

Would it be possible to make the ability to select Forecast Yield or Latest Yield a choice in the Parameters sheet? This would then avoid having to amend the VB code if this happens again in the future. It would also mean that it would be possible to always use Latest Yield if one wanted. I know th...

Re: Sharecast Forward Yield weirdness

Re: 70% for Rory Stewart

If the UK left the EU with "no deal" and then Scotland left the UK and attempted to rejoin the EU, doesn't this introduce all the land border problems that they've being trying to avoid in Ireland? Big mistake.... applying cold hard logic to IndyRef. Emotions will rule the day, not facts....
