Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

thanks for that.

whilst I appreciate that its primary intention is humour, but I don't really recognise the characterization of either Leave or Remain. Or rahter, while there are many strands of both the Leave and Remain communities, the ones presented are hardly the mainstream of either.

I suppose it's her personal experience and attempt to use a familiar metaphor to illustrate a complex social phenomenon that may not really come off.  However I thought it was a short piece worth a giggle...

NY's Top State Judges Sharply Question Own Benefits
With the government fighting to reduce its contributions to state employees' insurance plans, the judges claim that doing so would violate the compensation clause of the New York Constitution.

This law holds that "the compensation of a judge ... or of a retired judge ... shall be established by law and shall not be diminished during the term of office for which he or she was elected or appointed."


diction
