  1. Loved the twist back to reality in the last episode and then the final scene twists again, casting doubt / belief back into the audience. Well written, can see a second season if they want to.
  2. Up to episode 7 of The OA. It's oddball but got me hooked.
  3. You said social healthcare not universal and giving workers who cant afford healthcare, access to care was the first major step in Europe. The SHI v NHS systems are essentially the same apart from the extent of entitlement and importantly the German SHI mechanism was the inspiration for the leftist universal agenda.
  4. Brits werent the pioneers of social healthcare, that was Bismark in the 1880s. A perfect example of why confirmation bias renders perceptions of media bias in the public completely unhelpful.
  5. Aye, it sounded like she expected people in retirement to live on cruise ships half the year. Am thinking 30% would be fine.
  6. I went to see a financial planner, she reckoned people should aim for about 60 to 80% of their final income as their pension income. Seems reasonable until you think hang on, no kids, no mortgage, your own assets, savings obviously. How much do you actually need to be able to live comfortably? Is that what people aim for? All depends what you earn but it seems a lot given how much less you should need to spend.
  7. Right Am a bit slow today. It was the comparison across countries, i do know the french press very well and i would say their nationalistic, chauvinistic instinct is as deep as our media's.
  8. I agree, that was the point i wanted to make. However, its so subjective its not really comparable across countries.
  9. Because people's cognitive processes are dominated by heuristic bias. Therefore a study which assesses bias is flawed without adequate control.
  10. Not sure what you mean. You can't ask biased people to assess bias was my point. What's yours?
  11. Virtually meaningless as its based on perceptions and it would be impossible to control that study properly. Its at best directional.
  12. Its a good reflection but it misses the important distinction between coverage before the war and during the war. I think by the time the war had started the BBC had been beaten into submission by the government and its independence undermined.
