A brave, new country?


Theresa May has stated that the UK will not recognise Catalonia as an independent country and other EU leaders have also closed ranks against this new country, but it seems as though Governments of any country have a conflict of interest when it comes to recognising or not recognising break-ups of other countries We were happy to recognise the break-out states from Yugoslavia or the former Soviet Union.

What individuals think, which is supposed to be the central tenet of a democracy, seems to have been left by the wayside here. Theresa May probably has not asked enough UK people for their opinions to know whether British people are ready to recognise Catalonia as an independent state or not.

This poll is not just for the British. If you are human you can take part in it. Please give voice to your own personal recognition or non-recognition of the Catalan Republic.

Please share all you can so that we can have a nice representative sample of all on-line people from this planet.

 

Many thanks, whichever way you voted.

 

Poll – How did you vote in 1975?


Regular readers of this blog will, I hope, excuse me for canvassing the opinions of people over the age of 59 and just from the UK, but this is a little piece of research just to guage an idea I had. I will not say what the idea is now but I will later, I just don’t want to colour the results. Please share this with as many people 59 or over from the UK as you can.

Thanks for taking part with an honest answer and please let as many people who had the chance to vote in that Referendum know, then the results will be meaningful.

As far as I know there is no way for your answer to be identified with you unless you comment, which you are welcome as always to do. Certainly I can’t do it, so please answer with confidence.

We made it to 2013, but how much longer have we got?

Don’t ask me what this is but it’s got Vox Populi on it…

I thought I would kick-off the 2013 blogging on this channel with a little poll, one that I haven’t exactly seen elsewhere but which might be quite interesting as an experiment. After all, even though the Lord Jesus himself tells us that no man knows the time, there is also a saying “vox populi vox Dei” or “the voice of the people is the voice of God”. So could it be that collectively mankind knows when the end of the world is coming?

In fact, probably not. Was the voice of the people the voice of God when the crowd yelled “Crucify him!”? Hard to say – on the one hand it had to be this so that the prophesies could be fulfilled. In the case of this poll, the only prophesy to be fulfilled will probably be that nobody knows the day nor the hour, which means that our consensus, if the is one, will probably turn out to be hopelessly wrong.
