Totalitarianism can emerge either from a seemingly Right Wing philosophical base OR a Left Wing. Hitler (Right) and Stalin (Left) were almost indistinguishable in the way they governed. Mao was a left wing Fascist whilst. Franco came from the Right.

He's bang on there: different flags, different songs, but day to day life was similar whether you were an employer or employee.

Fascism is a distinct ideology. Mussolini and Hitler , to an extent, were fascist. Stalin was a Marxist-Leninist Communist dictator. Sorry, being a history snob again.

"Hard Brexit" is the new bogeyman phrase for the Remain limpets. I'm still loving the fear. :D

Both "brexit" itself and "hard/soft brexit" are stupid media phrases (the media needed a silly term for headline repetition, just like the "credit crunch" in 2008/9). Both campaigns have been using fear and distortions to push their agenda.

"Hard Brexit" will soon be phased out and forgotten, once we are in the midst of nuclear war and financial meltdown due to Donald Trump's presidential election victory and finally negotiated ourselves out the European Union. Its clearly the era that the "basketful of deplorables" finally get to make the decisions about the direction of the world! :P

Realistically, very little has changed since the vote. It's ended a few politician's careers - curiously including a lot of the pro-Brexit ones - and the pound seems to have gone South in a manner that's been a little bit too long-lasting to chalk up to instability. However, there's still no clear plan forward and the politicians whose careers haven't bit the dust are still just bouncing ideas around.

At this rate, we'll all be playing Star Citizen before the UK leaves the EU.

Whilst that article is all well and good, it's just missing the point (deliberately, imo). I think most people would have expected the first ones over here would be the most vulnerable. IE babies, toddlers etc, not those 'minors' clearly capable of looking after themselves.

Well, sure, but remember that this is a special provision to re-unite unaccompanied minors with their families. Most of the babies and toddlers in refugee camps will be with their parents, still outside the UK, and not covered by it. Similarly, there won't be a lot of unaccompanied girls of any age, for reasons I surely needn't go into, and the net result of that is that nearly all the people eligible will be boys in their mid to late teens who ended up there after making their own way to follow a relative who's already gained asylum. There's really no mystery to this when you think about it.
