Re: General Election matters

Apparently Mr Johnson went to a different bakery in Wells where he said that there had been a number of 'crusties' waiting for him outside 'Burns the Bread'.

Not sure how this epithet will have gone down with the denizens of Glasto - many of whom are - er...well... crusties TBH. :???:

Re: Northern Ireland politics.

Is it just that I'm becoming old and cynical, or is the standard of senior politicians steadily falling? Both. :thumb: I was just watching BBC news - Naga was interviewing the health secretary. She showed us two clips - the first of Johnson (looking very drunk TBH) waffling on in only a marginally ...

Re: Northern Ireland politics.

Am reading that right - that Sinn Fein are standing aside in favour of Unionists implying that remaining in the EU has higher priority for them at this time than the republican cause?

Re: This New Technology Can Fully Charge an Electric Car in Just 10 Minutes

I'm wondering where the electricity to do all this fast charging is going to come from. A fast charger (currently Tesla can do a 300 mile charge in 1 hour) needs a supply capable of delivering at 150kw. To reduce that to 10 minutes would therefore need a supply capable of delivering 6 times that (is...

Re: Brexit consequences

I think we would have to undertake to action the result whatever.

It's certainly not a perfect or even tidy solution - but what else can we do?

Re: Brexit consequences

Whichever way you look at it the Brexit process is bogged down and going nowhere. Leavers will say that it the elites stymying the 'will of the people', remainers will say it's parliament quite properly holding the government to account. The reason doesn't particularly matter. I suspect that if what...

Re: Brexit consequences

Apparently, Section 55 of the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Act 2018 states that: "It shall be unlawful for Her Majesty’s Government to enter into arrangements under which Northern Ireland forms part of a separate customs territory to Great Britain." Jo Maugham QC has stated, "I believe that the pr...

Re: Get Brexit Done!

I think the outcome of a general election is more predictable that the result of a 2ref. Pretty sure the Tories would win as it stands right now. 2ref would probably produce a majority for remain but it would been to be a big one to be decisive. The LibDems and Labour (and the SNP et al) really need...
