    Honda leaving - possible alternatives?

    I don't know the situation with the said Honda plant, but from my limited experience of research and development( subcontract to a Ford supplier of parts), I believe there have to be several manufacturers of the car parts. For example, I worked on a newer, safer sub-chassis for a new Ford mini-van(people carrier) about 20 years ago and this was for a subcontractor to Ford. The engineers involved told me that all the big car manufacturers design the model and supply the engine and transmission and farm out all the other parts to various specialised companies. In the end, all the main car plant does is assemble the vehicles. So there is a lot more to making cars than just buying the assembly plant, you would have to have a network of parts manufacturers too.

    That sounds like quite a few pupils at my daughters school - all fervent supports of the EDL and NF.

    Honda leaving - possible alternatives?

    The majority of people who voted leave. They deserve the consequences. As we are constantly reminded my Leavers, the majority have spoken. So I am glad the consequences are and will be happening. Unfortunate for some who voted remain, but it is all for themselves I am afraid. I won’t be affected so I have gone beyond caring for others.

    Propaganda

    I like it. You 'Suggest'. Surely this is a former of propaganda? We're all guilty of it at times but when it comes to news organisations it's a dangerous thing. I've got nothing against so called experts offering an opinion but speculation is a different animal. A poster mentioned RT previously. Now although I do tune in for a laugh occasionally, (Max Keiser & his wife, Stacy Herbert must be considered idiots back in the US), how the British journalists keep a straight face, (RT must be paying them well), when reporting on the treatment of US prisoners in US gaols, (hmmm? Let's think Siberian gulags), or the oppression of minorities in both the US & surprisingly in the UK, (hmmm? Let's think the suppression of any minority groups, religious & sexual orientation wise by the Kremlin), I don't really know. Royal Suchet's dad, John is no doubt proud of him & one day he'll no doubt try & get a job with ITN or the BBC?
  7. Perhaps you should take this matter further and report the first two cheaters to the trading standards department. I'm sure that is not the first time it's happened and was not a mistake.

    The IRA gave few warnings about postal bombs and anthrax including those sent via the Royal Mail including in Sheffield-my family lived and worked through it - they're abhorrent terrorists and they're all as bad as one another. If you can make friends with Gerry Adams a pregnant girl should be no problem for a coutry. The IRA gave almost no warnings in Ireland itself . The ANC helped eradicate apartheid and replace it with white people being shot by blacks.

    Not entirely successful was it. Why don't you contact some of the families of the people the ira murdered because they were colluding with the British. Maybe talk to the families of the missing and explain how they weren't like ISIS and the murder and disappearance of their families were just accidents. Don't get me wrong, things have changed massively since the 70s but the ira weren't a million miles apart from ISIS.

    Honda leaving - possible alternatives?

    I think we owe a debt of gratitude to the barm pots who through their actions of promoting electric cars before they are a real viable alternative have done untold damage to the sale of petrol/diesel car sales = jobs. Car pollution v Jobs seems to be what it comes down to in the end. It would appear you cannot have both. Angel1.

    SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY V SWANSEA CITY

    As predicted by me Wednesday are already 2-0 When you have one team with an average wage bill of £50,000 per week per player playing a team with an average wage bill of £500 per week per player there can only be one outcome

    Kilner Way Retail Park thread

    I wonder effect what the proposed retail park opposite the Wednesday ground will have on Kilner Way. A couple of drive thru food/drink units... an Aldi/Lidl store and other units. Apart from the added traffic in the area, will it house more empty units ?

    Propaganda

    Regardless of the reason, I'd suggest the closure of honda (and Phillips and Schaeffer) and the halted investment at Nissan is sliding towards crisis for UK manufacturing.

    Propaganda

    Let's not get into a discussion on Brexit per se, that's covered in other threads but there are plenty of companies saying they intend to move out of the UK because of Brexit so why shouldn't we take at face value Honda's INSISTENCE it isn't proposing to close it's Swindon plant for other reasons, yet accept the BBC stance that Brexit IS a contributory factor? It's the same with Sky News. I'm fed up seeing the screenshot just before they go to & come back from a breaks, 'Brexit Crisis', even when the previous or next story has no relation to Brexit or is even a political story. It's akin to a subtle subliminal message. Tell people often enough there is is a 'crisis' & they'll start to believe the message. It's not unlike Goebbels statement, (paraphrasing), that if you repeat a lie often enough, it eventually becomes the truth.
  22. Top Cats Hat

    Propaganda

    Given that Tesco and ASDA intially delayed claiming that Brexit uncertainty was harming their businesses for fear of a customer backlash, it is perfectly reasonable to speculate that Honda might not be being entirely truthful. When it was revealed that Savid Javid had gone against his own Home Office policy to allow former ISIS supporters back to the UK under certain conditions when he tred to revoke Begum's citizenship, it was speculated that this had more to do with looking tough, pandering to social media opinion and a possible leadership bid than out of any principle. This speculation was also reasonable.

    Gym advice for v overweight

    Tzijlstra is on the money here - my wife has lost over two stone in a little over a year by cutting out crap from her diet - things like biscuits and crisps - and taking more exercise - swimming three times a week and walking more. I'd never recommend a gym to anybody. Dull, tedious places populated by dull, tedious, self obsessed people. Walk at a brisk pace for half an hour a day, or whatever you can manage, go swimming a couple of times a week and cut out the rubbish from your diet. You don't need a gym.

    Propaganda

    But surely any statement by a corporation shouldn't be necessarily taken at face value and reporters - it's their job - should dig inbetween the lines and look into things like the state of Honda's books, the industry as a whole etc etc etc.
