    Honda leaving - possible alternatives?

    If we are all going to have these electric cars, new houses should be made with a charging point, it should be included in the building standards. In reality, new diesels will be even cleaner than todays EURO 6 cars. I believe electric cars are more efficient than petrol/diesel, but maybe the costs involved will become lower.

    I would put that at the door of politicians that they think they should tell everyone what they must drive in 25 years time. They will be cleaner, greener and safer; what form that will take is unknown. They have ditched the idea of zero carbon house now, barking, we need new politicians.

    I do believe Brexit is an additional factor. What the BBC would not report is "Honda close plant due to Government policies"

    Propaganda

    You seem to be questioning the neutrality of the BBC, in the same way, many will question the motives of Honda. Do Honda want the public to realise that the plant is closing partly because of Brexit and tariffs? Honda sales have risen for the past 5 years, in 2012 they sold 3 million vehicles, in 2018 they sold 5 million vehicles. Diesel sales have declined in recent months/years, diesel car sales made up 32.4% of the total car market in 2018, compared with 43.5% in March 2017.

    A new small political party

    Some of them believe that the people that voted for them did not want JC as prime minister, and that is the Labour side

    Honda leaving - possible alternatives?

    Anyone can start a company at any time. There are a number of energy companies, supported by local authorities, so socialist companies. Some are still trading and some owe millions and have gone bust. Small energy provider Our Power has gone bust leaving 38,000 domestic customers to find a new supplier, it emerged today. The supplier, which was launched in 2016 on an ethical, non-profit platform - has joined the long list of small providers that have ceased trading in the last year: Extra Energy, Spark Energy, Future Energy, National Gas and Power, Iresa Energy, Gen4U, Usio Energy, One Select and Economy Energy. https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/bills/article-6632213/Energy-supplier-Power-ceased-trading-joining-list-small-firms-gone-bust.html

    That is a bad example. I support Leeds Utd, but if Sheffield won I would respect their efforts. Ian Austen is a moderate, most moderates believe in cooperation and the EU.

    By-elections

    Perhaps they should stand for re-election, but they have all resigned the whip for different reasons.

    Ian Austen is a remainer, but he respects the result of the referendum.
  10. In August 2016, the BBC published photographs taken in June that year that it said showed British special forces soldiers apparently guarding the perimeter of the New Syrian Army's base. In April 2018 four RAF Tornados joined with US and French forces to carry out airstrikes in Syria early on Saturday as Theresa May said that there was no alternative to military action. The prime minister said that the “co-ordinated and targeted strikes” were taken against the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons capability.

    I put his name into an online news website, probably right. I was saying that we should have a referendum, before one was called, there was that much anti-EU rhetoric, I felt the issue should be resolved. I voted remain too.

    He is a remainer, but he backed Mays deal. He was a member of Labour Friends of Israel and on the right of the party, so no friend of Corbyn.

    Propaganda

    Not sure its the correct headline though. When the article contains things like "It looks highly likely that he will have to announce downgraded growth forecasts from the OBR [Office for Budget Responsibility] at least for the near term, with possible negative ramifications for expected budget deficits." Maybe I need to read the article again?

    Propaganda

    Our Government is borrowing less because they have transferred their spending onto non-Government bodies; who have borrowed money, so the fact that Government debt is lower is cancelled out by higher non-Government debt. The real story is that total debt has increased!

    Propaganda

    The headline on the BBC news was - Record UK government surplus in January The ONS said that public sector net debt increased by £40.5bn to £1.8tn in January, so I am not really sure why a reduced Government surplus would be the headline. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47318862
