    Labour want another lockdown

    Every organisation concerning public service where employees are working from home is a disaster in my opinion. The obvious reasons for this are that communications go astray, clerical staff are unable to collate and disseminate information and the home workers are generally not working...

    So much for Global Britain ..!

    American ammunition manufacturers make plenty of ammo for metric calibres but with the exception of now obsolete Remington 5mm RF I cannot recall any original US calibres being metric. Perhaps you could find one or two examples.

    So much for Global Britain ..!

    I was not aware that true US calibres were in metric though there are some true metric equivalents ie .308 Wincchester = 7.62mm(NATO)

    Covid Vaccine Roll out.

    My point is this, many cases are asymptomatic and not registered but with a blanket testing policy in schools and certain professions these cases are detected when they would otherwise not be recorded. Many people with mild symptoms may also go unreported.

    Remind me does livestock produce CO2

    I take your point. Cooling things down is an energy drain but warming things up using waste heat rather than generated energy is a plus surely.

    Brexit is destroying Britain

    Sorry to sound nostalgic but it was with some regret that many of us voted to join the EEC and abandon , to some extent at least, the Commonwealth trade links. We may be situated in the Atlantic but many of our closest relatives trade to a great extent within the Pacific region. We have to...

    No one cares?

    By all accounts testing in Germany is extremely low and we test between four and five times more people per million than they do. Is it any wonder that the figures are vastly different?

    Remind me does livestock produce CO2

    The simple answer to the question is that every living creature produces CO2. It is simply a by product of energy generation and the more energy expended the more CO2 is produced. Thus the athlete or the footballer are two examples of people who pollute our planet in an extravagant fashion...

    Strangely quiet about this..

    If remain had won the EU would see it as a green light to continue on the road to further integration. That would fuel further leave pressure than ever before. Now the EU seems to have taken on board some of the lessons given but it matters little to us now. It is a pity that our politicians did...

    The uk

    I have hilarious recollections of staying in a country hotel in Limoges. As is common in France we booked a family room for myself, wife and two daughters. There was an en suite shower behind a heavy curtain and, upon reaching through to turn the device on, the shower head rose up off the wall...
