I'm surprised you're down-voted for stating facts. I can only agree with you; unless your computing needs are large - gaming, video-editing... an old computer will do most of what anyone needs. Mine is 10 years old, also runs Mint, and, incidentally, is fine for conferencing.

Re: You know you're in trouble..
Don't know...I suppose because, as there were no obvious benefits not to be in the EU, and that leaving would cost us a shed-load of money, they thought no-one would be stupid enough to vote for it, when push came to shove. Still, as long as Cummings takes back control, all will be just fine.
