    Use less resources, produce less and remember the environment

    On the otherside of the coin "some people", in fact the usual people, are making a killing. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/oct/23/crown-gives-go-ahead-to-rival-net-zero-carbon-north-sea-schemes

    Afghanistan Refugees

    Her Majesties Government has air lifted about 15,000 people out of Afghanistan. Many of which will come to the UK as refugees to claim Asylum. I was thinking today about the fact some of these people would have been at risk if they stayed in Afghanistan. But wouldn't the Afghan soldiers also...

    ebay unbranded products

    I'm looking for some Makita saws, doing some carpentry work at the moment. First fix, floorboards and ceilings. Anyway, strayed onto ebay looking at tools and saw what looked like Makita tool with no Makita name. Same for batteries. Has anyone tried these out and what was the end result, was...

    The Guardian

    Today I read an article in the Comic that electric cars only lose about 30kg of "matter" during their lifetime. The article quotes 17,000 litres of fuel for combustion engines. Yet obviously totally declines to account for fuels used to power electric generation and the transmission of that...

    Sockets for use with spanners

    Hello, just spent some time looking for sockets which I can put a spanner on the top. Similar to the sockets used for spark plugs but normal length sockets. The reason I'd like some is to be able to tighten a nut whilst at the sametime holding the pin still via an alan key - needed when...

    USA Republican website

    I was just looking at the Republican website to see if there was any news on Trump. I didn't spot any but it IS interesting to see what the Democrats ARE doing: https://www.gop.gov/democrats-partisan-rules-package-ignores-constitutional-values-and-institutional-principles/...

    Draft EU Partnership document

    You might be interested in this document: https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/200318-draft-agreement-gen.pdf Having read a little bit about the "Level playing field" I think the EU is taking the mickey. The EU does little else but create distortions in regional grants, political culture...

    The right tool for the job

    Supposedly the reason 16,000 cases were not added to Covid-19 figures was because an excel spreadsheet was used which "Maxxed out" .. The problem has been "Solved" by splitting the excel sheet into "Batches". IMHO this goes to show how those who "think" they know what they are doing don't. A...

    Climate Change & the Farmgate

    We are currently being assessed based on our usage of "Fossil Fuels" - of which our usage of Fertiliser seems to be weighed against us heavily. Is this correct ? I buy based on the price of Nitrogen not how it has been manufactured. Whereas the government is punishing me based on how it was...

    Getting back to work

    Some people never left work .. and I'm sure for many of you it's work as normal with some differences. I must say though how quiet & how blue the sky has been. It's very obvious that at some point people are going to have to go back to work. I think those that control businesses need to begin...

    If getting over the Corona virus takes 14 days to isolate ..

    Then why aren't we all isolating for 2 weeks so we can all get on with our lives ? Isolate .. let the disease fizzle out .. disinfect mass transit and ultimately hospitals. Or am I missing something ?

    German Covid 19 death rate

    One of the things that stands out in the current figures is how the German death rate from Covid 19 is far lower than other countries. I wondered if this was due to the use of Anti Virals or perhaps a lack of reporting maybe due to control of data or a language barrier. Perhaps it is how this...

    Corona Virus & Imports

    The UK imports many goods from other countries, as far as I know mainly China, USA & EU. Many manufacturing processes in all countries rely on Chinese manufacturing. If the Corona Virus becomes an epidemic, especially in China. Where does this leave the UK and other Western countries which...

    Legal Aid fraud

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7895505/Three-judges-five-lawyers-scammed-taxpayer-12-6m-fake-legal-aid-payments.html I'm a bit surprised about the amounts involved in this case. A total of £12.6 million pounds of legal aid was defrauded in I think about 3 cases. The first case...

    Why Labour and Why Now ?

    I cannot help but notice how most of the media coverage is about either the failures of Labour & Jeremy Corbyn .. or the 48 Seats won by the SNP has created a "Constitutional Crysis". Whilst both those subjects are "interesting" I'm far more concerned about the lack of positive media coverage...

    Combat Dealers

    My father has developed an interest in the "Combat Dealers" programme on TV. On occassion I watch the show, quite fascinating in all it's different aspects. About a week ago they were looking at Nazi Posters, one of which was warning about how the black market could undermine Nazi Germany and...

    Epstein & Q

    About a year ago when posts from "Q" were rife on YouTube. There was - from memory - something going around about this temple and child abuse: I thought this was in someway linked to an infamous family of bankers ? Going back to "Q" .. does this mean there is some tangible truth to some of...
