    Selling off the UK

    It's been going on for decades of course. But in a cynical move, last night at 10pm, after it thought everyone had gone home for Christmas, the government announced it's approval of the sale of Cobham to a US firm. Cue the sale of British agriculture and health... Discuss.

    What weight of cable?

    I've got a digger in to run some services to a small shed. It will only have lights, kettle, oven and other minor devices. No motors etc. The run is about 25 metres from the switch board. What weight of armoured cable should I lay down? Thanks

    Festival of Remembrance

    Very touching moment as the audience applauded the veterans. Cant help but well up. Glowing with pride to hear the voice of the unnamed active GCHQ agent is drawn from our tiny population across the Irish sea. It's such a well-configured event using the arts to help us remember the huge...

    De Souza case Some people truly have gone mad. Wanting to apply for rights for a foreign husband on the strength of his relationship to you, even though you refuse to hold the identity of the country you were born and reared in. Seriously?

    Which screws for aluminium cladding?

    I'm reusing some 2nd hand poultry cladding, and have been warned not to use steel nails or screws, as they will react with the sheet and rot a hole around nail. Finding the right type of screw or nail at builders merchants hasn't proved be simple. None are very sure of the right answer. Can...

    Today in Parliament

    Just reviewing the news today regarding the Northern Ireland bill to bring forward same sex marriage and abortion if there's no assembly by October. Gavin Robinson was quoted as saying that if the assembly was running tomorrow, the DUP wouldn't have the numbers to stop it anyway. But, on a...

    What to do between longleat and merseyside?

    It's not a joke. I know it's a massive area. So big in fact we dont know what to do with our extra day from center parcs longleat on the way to the ferry. Three kids in the back seat by the way, 10, 8 and 4. All suggestions welcome. If we can get something to do/look at, then we will know...

    Killing Eve

    Anyone one watched this series? Basically since the end of House of Cards, I've been scratching around looking for something to my taste. Just came across this series about a month ago, and it's great! Nice and dark, hint of humour and the ridiculous, skilled camera direction and lighting...

    Customs Union

    So Ken Clarke's suggestion is getting a bit of coverage at the moment. For those of you who have looked into this, what are the con's? Unable to make our own trade deals? Looks like that isn't going to come to much as it is anyway. Must stay in regulatory alignment? We'll need to do that...

    Antibiotic resistance

    I'm sure most of you will recognise this old timer. 157 day meat withdrawal these days, presumably why it disappeared off the shelves in favour of marbocyl. Long story short. Results back from a calf P.M. and lab culture revealed that the E. coli which killed it via navel ill is was...

    The trade deals that sooner or later will be done

    Looking beyond the sticky withdrawal matter - to the real business of making money flow. I for one have no faith that the government will act in a way that protects agricultural sectors. From a dairy perspective, we are net importers. A free trade deal in dairy products with lower cost...

    Merc ML250 reliability

    As per title, what do you guys and girls know about the 4cyl version? Looking at something probably in the 75k region, and to possibly put the same again onto it before selling on. 200hp is quite a lot for that small engine. How does the airsuspension last? Is it a liability on an old...

    Defender td5 slow to start

    2000 defender. 150k clock. Runs well, burns a bit of oil (2 or 3 litres between changes), small amount of smoke under hard throttle. Has had one injector replaced, others were worn. In this chilly weather, she takes a fair few turns before starting. Has been this way for a number of years...
