There's no problem if CSS overrides styles on elements that aren't used on a page. They simply aren't applied. Same if there's no style in the CSS for a specific element, it'll just use whatever reddit's default is. There's no reason not to make it available to subs who want to start developing new CSS as long as they understand it's a moving target.

There is because some people (like myself) like to move around a lot of elements, if suddenly they decided to move a default one around and I used an absolute or relative position on that or an element below it, my whole design would go bust.

Either do it right or don't do it all. And they are hopefully waiting until they have a final design and only then give us the option to style it the way we want.

Then you're clearly not the right audience for early testing. Accepting that it can completely break is part of access to things in active development. That doesn't mean others wouldn't benefit from having it available.

We'll be dragging Remain voters out of the EU for a deal that means still complying with many EU rules, but now with no say on shaping them.

But Justine, the pro-remain arguments have always had an underlying tone of the EU knowing what's best for us - on workers' rights, environmental standards, competition law, free market principles etc... are you suggesting that our (usually contrary) opinion on these laws could change the trajectory of the political project?

Or is that just a blunt acknowledgement that we're damned if we do and damned if we don't - that if we retain any ties to Brussels' lawmaking, we're going to swallow legislation whether we voted against it in Europarl, or sat on the sidelines and watched it being made?

You see, for me, that sums up exactly why the country voted to leave in the first place. As a nation, we didn't see ourselves as having enough influence on the political direction of the continent - and in all honesty, if they want a closer union and homogenisation of culture and national institutions, good luck to them. The UK would never agree to that and would only continue to stifle, rather than change Europe's mind on, fundamentals such as an EU army, the CAP, CFP and more.

We as a nation are the EU-wide equivalent of that MP who objected to the "upskirting" ban - we're contrarians within Europarl who I imagine a lot of EU lawmakers will actually be happy to see the back of.

And to be honest, as an aside, when the entire Europarl has never in its history elected even a plurality of MEPs from any ideological group besides small c free market conservatism I'm surprised at the level of support it still receives from the leftwing / socialist mainstream of UK politics. It's been heading in one direction economically and ideologically ever since its inception, and there is zero sign of it changing even if we had a change of heart and sent a glut of pro-reform socialists to Europarl.

Google Photos doesn't seem to have that option to backup specific folders.

You can select which folders to backup on the Android version so I'm sure it's possible on the iPhone version as well.

The moment it notices a new folder with pictures I always get a msg asking if I wish to backup that folder as well, so maybe try and make a new folder and move the photos in there to trigger it.

He's the moneyman. That's all he is.

This is hilarious. There was a leaked speech by Boris Johnson in which he said Donald Trump would do a better job of negotiating Brexit than May, and the right-wing newspapers - even the usually respectable ones - have caused a bit of a fuss about how May 'ignored' the advice of Mr Genius Deal-Maker. Telling the world what this legendary advice actually was - and laughing it off - is actually a bolder move than we're used to from May.

Are the words too big for you?

Out of interest, what were your reasons for voting leave?

Principally sovereignty (but probably not for the arguments you are likely to have heard, eg trade and foreign policy) and, secondarily, democratic deficit. I am adamantly against European federalism and I am not satisfied that EU policy makers are adequately answerable to EU citizens.

I'm not much bothered about immigration except to the extent that UK infrastructure (mainly housing, but also health, education and transport) can't cope. I do care about social integration (as distinct from diversity), but that is a social problem that brexit (a political solution) can't address.

Some EU directives and policies piss me off, but not enough to want to leave on that score alone — and who even amongst the most ardent of remain supporters does not find something or other to their dislike?

If I could have been reasonably sure that the EU would not significantly change in the foreseeable future, or had it remained principally about trade, or were it possible for ordinary EU member state citizens to influence policy via the ballot box, I would have voted to remain. But there was every reason to think that change was not only likely but essential for the EU to survive, and no particular reason to think that the polity (or even member state governments) would have had a great deal of say in it.

The sovereignty aspect centres around fiscal policy union and the role the € is likely to play in forcing it — making the EU a federal union in practice if not in name. Stuff like common defence policy or an EU army are too nascent and undeveloped to be of much concern yet, and at any rate I have no opinion on that.

In 2015, Juncker, Tusk et al. published a document entitled Completing Europe's Economic and Monetary Union (aka the "Five Presidents' Report") that outlines their objective of imposing central fiscal policy control in some manner or other including on non-€Z members. They seemed to think (rightly, in my interpretation) that it could be done without amendment of the TEU and therefore there'd be no veto.

Fiscal policy union could take several forms, at one extreme an EU income tax with budgets written by the Commission. Lesser forms include allocation of consolidated revenues (which member states can then spend as they like) or Commission intervention in a member state's budget if they didn't like something about it.

Even that is unacceptable to me because it amounts to "you can do anything you like provided we approve of it" which means the end of the sovereign latitude to enact fiscal policies with which the EU disagrees.

I consider the € an existential threat to fiscal policy sovereignty that makes fiscal policy union unacceptable for reasons I simplistically outlined here.

True, every international agreement curbs sovereign latitude but, with the exception of the TEU, always proportionate to the benefit gained. No benefit can be worth giving the other party carte blanche to write law and regulation, almost without limitation.

ECJ might not be a problem in and of itself except ECJ judges are not judges by British standards. They don't even have to be a qualified lawyer never mind have judicial experience: TFEU Art. 253 only stipulates a "jurisconsult of recognised competence" without specifying by whom or what constitutes competence.

Secondarily, the ECJ follows Napoleonic or civil-law jurisprudence which is quite different from our own common-law jurisprudence. Civil-law judges don't have the latitude to tell the legislature that it has overstepped the mark or to bring any mode of "common sense" to their application of law. Instead, they must apply the rules and laws as written by Brussels without being obliged to consider anything else.

The lack of independence of the ECJ from the Commission (the ultimate source of every law and regulation) is a problem because it means that no individual nor member state has any sort of judicial recourse against the institutions of the EU. Even though every judiciary are, in some sense, their legislature's enforcer, the US Constitution codifies independence of the judiciary for good reason. Power unchecked will invariably and eventually get out of control.

Nor is there much in the way of electoral recourse: EU member state citizens can vote for their own legislatures, but their member state's representative on the Council is, ex officio, their head of state (or representative). What makes a good head of state doesn't necessarily make for a good Council representative, and vice versa.

The Commission is wholly appointed. Its composition can be vetoed but not altered by the EP. It can be dismissed by the EP on a 2/3rds vote which is a very high bar considering the composition of the EP (for which reason this has never happened). The EP itself cannot introduce its own bills, it must ask the Commission to propose anything they want done but the Commission is not obliged to comply. Nor can the EP amend Commission bills, it must get the Council's consent.

Some argue that since the EP and Council are, one way or the other, elected that the EU is democratically accountable. After a fashion it is elected but, for me, there are too many layers of indirection for electoral accountability to be meaningful. Technically, the Soviet Union was also indirectly democratic — совет (soviet) literally means "council".

I'm not for a second suggesting that the USSR and the EU are remotely comparable, only pointing out that doubly indirect elections aren't automatically democratic. Hell, even our own Westminster representative democracy in which MPs are directly elected doesn't always effect the will of the people.

it seems like you can actually form an educated opinion, and I am actually interested to hear your thoughts.

Kind of you to say! I hope I didn't disappoint.

There's too much here to reply on but I'll pick out small thing that caught my eye immediately and is proven to be false:

ECJ might not be a problem in and of itself except ECJ judges are not judges by British standards. They don't even have to be a qualified lawyer never mind have judicial experience: TFEU Art. 253 only stipulates a "jurisconsult of recognised competence" without specifying by whom or what constitutes competence.

This is what Article 253 actually says:

The Judges and Advocates-General of the Court of Justice shall be chosen from persons whose independence is beyond doubt and who possess the qualifications required for appointment to the highest judicial offices in their respective countries or who are jurisconsults of recognised competence; they shall be appointed by common accord of the governments of the Member States for a term of six years, after consultation of the panel provided for in Article 255.

While I voted remain I still have serious reservations about the EU.

A drunk in charge of the commission.

Lack of proper information and campaigning in the EU parliament elections.

Lack of publicity and transparency regarding MEP expenses. Also no rules stating MEPs have to show up to get paid (see Farage).

I think it's a great idea but in practice it seems a bit clunky. Maybe because the UK has never really been involved closely in the EU as Germany has for example.

Everything you mentioned is done in other countries but the UK simply doesn't care. You are in fact blaming the UK media and government for not providing to you what is available to you.

Like indigenous people try to do with anything? Find an old beat up canoe from 400 years ago? They say the land was sacred and we cant build there. But really it was a tribesman named Mike who got lazy and left the canoe behind cause he was tired of carrying it.

Big difference between European and American archaeology.

There is an abundance of archaeology in Europe. You can literary dig anywhere and find thousands of years of history beneath your feet. This also means that it's easier to dismiss certain archaeology sites simply because it's not that important.

In America however finding anything could be of monumental importance purely because of the rarity of it.

You might think it's nothing but since 'the white man' destroyed 90% of native historical land it's of the upmost importance that everything gets examined. Even "Mike who got lazy and left his canoe behind" can be a vital puzzle piece in America's history.
