    So you’ve missed Labour’s proposal to put 10% of the shares all companies with more than 250 workers into the ownership of the workers?

    Nope, but I haven’t seen the proposal to confiscate them which is what some people are terrified of. It simply says ‘transfer ownership’ in all those links which will likely result in companies having to buy…[Read more]

    That’s not enough to form a government, it’s a hung parliament.

    It’s not enough to form a government <i>on your own</i>. You can have coalitions and minority governments.

  • I don’t think may riders are working just as hard.

    No, you CAN take it easier on an e-bike, this is an advantage for some people. But it doesn’t STOP you pedalling just as hard for just as long and getting the same workout.

  • the surgeon who cracked my chest open told me coffee was fine.
    most AF is started through exercise whilst run down/tired. holiday heart is what he called it, brought on by daily boozing combined with tiredness.

    Interesting. Too much coffee gives me AF in short 1 second bursts, and ectopic beats if I exercise hard with too much coffee.

    It got…[Read more]

  • I need a cardiologist tbh. Negative effects of coffee getting worse.

    Outofbreath – we’ve done this to death as you will remember. No-one says anything about ‘confiscating’ except you and presumably other anti-Corbynites.

    where there is a proposal to confiscate 10% of mid to large companies shares?

    Not in the UK, that’s for sure.

    1kw – fill your boots

    Oh, now that looks interesting and might actually be a viable cheap solution. Would also be handy on our actual towel rails as they are cold all summer long.

    We have dual fuel towel radiators but we were advised to switch them off in the winter (when the CH is on) and when used in the summer, to isolate them using t…

    An under desk solution would need to be the size of a 23″ monitor to fit under my desk.

  • molgrips replied to the topic Hybrid radiators? in the forum Chat Forum 4 hours ago

    My feet go underneath the desk.

    If there was place to put an oil filled rad where it wasn’t in the way, I’d have already done it. I want to know specifically if they exist and if anyone’s looked at or installed them.

    More bollocks form the Beeb.

    So the scooters maybe CAN travel that fast, except the local regulations (which we don’t yet have) prevent that. Doesn’t sound like bollocks to me.

    So, they are legal in other EU countries but not here. It’s almost as if we are a sovereign nation with our own laws, isn’t it?

    As in, something that will fit in the same space as my traditional radiator but can also be heated by electricity as well the CH system. Why? Becauase I work from home during the day a lot, I don’t want the whole house heated but a bit of extra boost would be nice. Of course, oil-filled rads or other plug-in heaters are fine, but there’s no…[Read more]

    People also aren’t thinking very carefully about policies either. From BBC:

    Billy [Bishop Auckland] thinks Brexit has left people feeling betrayed by all the parties.

    “They thought ‘give the monkeys a vote, they’ll vote to stay in’ and that’s when the trouble started.

    “They don’t want to honour what the people said and keep the working…

    Plus a lot of people are racist to some degree.

    It’s a little bit more subtle. A lot of people feel a little germ of discomfort around things or people that are different. I think this is part of human nature, probably going back to before we were even human – I’ve certainly felt it. Often it grows into an -ism which could just as easily be…[Read more]

    Centrism is disappearing.

    Centrist politicians might be. But then someone will move into the gap. It’s how it goes.

  • I’ll stick the multimeter on it too and see if there’s a parasitic discharge.

    Good luck with that, it’s a bastard to discover with a multimeter on a modern car.

    I’m going for Boris with +50.

    Things will very rapidly fall apart, I predict another GE in 3 years amid recession and huge social problems. Then whatever centrist has replaced JC will walk home. Basically Blair all over again except without a war to fuck things up hopefully.

    FFS how many billions of geese do we have in this country, why aren’t we eating them???

    I dunno if it’s that many. I’ve been seeing a couple of flocks a day with 10-20 birds flying over. In Wisconsin where we often end up in autumn the sky’s full of them wherever you look.

  • Go to Mountain Warehouse. Their stuff is pretty impressive these days, although I don’t know if there’s any biking stuff in the lineup. I’ve got some cheap Trespass walking trousers that are ace for riding in the cold. Go Outdoors have lots of cheap stuff and good sales. Also check out Sports Direct for their running/gym stuff. I have a…[Read more]
