  1. If he hasnt got those assurances, then he is either brave or just wants to serve one term.
  2. He chose the party which would most likely re-elect him next time. Not much difference between Labour and the Liberal Democrats, the latter are to the right of Labour, but as a LD he would not be re-elected.
  3. Sheffield council did supply solar panels, but due to cuts they were scrapped in 2016. Shefield Mayors policy is "The Strategy is based on collaboration between academia, businesses and South Yorkshire communities, and includes plans to ensure no new homes use fossil fuels by 2025." So I assume new homes are having solar panels, but other homes will have to wait for funding from Mayor Dan Jarvis.
  4. It was the case that free solar panels were only available to those in social housing(Leeds) but the link no longer asks what type of housing. So free solar panels are available to all, posibly, in Leeds and Wakefield. Not sure why that is. Council or Mayor funding? Rent a roof panels have always been available to all, still are, as far as I am aware. Better Homes Yorkshire is open to homeowners, private tenants and landlords in the Leeds City Region. Participating councils include: Leeds, Bradford, Kirklees, Calderdale, Wakefield, York, Craven, Harrogate and Selby. Better Homes Yorkshire is a joint programme managed by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (The LEP).
  5. Consumer price inflation surged to 5.4% in the 12 months to December, up from 5.1% the month before, in another blow to struggling families. RPI inflation has also increased, that stands at 7.5% its highest since 1990 The last time inflation was higher was in March 1992, when it was 7.1%. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-60050699
  6. Do you mean their personalities or their policies? The title on this thread did not limit you to the two main partys, although our electoral system does.
  7. The link also states, Calderdale, Barnsley, York, ETC, but not Sheffield.
  8. When compared the UK with the US, Canada, Germany, Australia, Sweden, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, the UK spent the least per capita on healthcare in 2017 compared with all other countries studied. We examined 79 health systems metrics in the UK and nine comparable countries and found that the UK had lower spending and slower growth in expenditure than comparators. Several factors contribute to the relatively low expenditure in the UK, including lower levels of doctor and nurse staffing, lower rates of utilisation, and less provision of long term care than comparators. Despite already low levels of labour, the UK is making do with fewer doctors and nurses, a challenge that is likely to be exacerbated in the context of Brexit. https://www.bmj.com/content/367/bmj.l6326 This thread is meant to be about our failing economy. The price of oil hit its highest level in more than seven years on Tuesday as traders worried that an attack on a fuel storage facility in the Middle East could affect supply. Regular pay, excluding bonuses and adjusted for inflation, fell 1% in November compared to the same month in the previous year. Which will be using the CPI measure of inflation, so it likely to be more than 1%, posibly as much as 3% https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-60035312
  9. It would be just like general taxation, the rich would pay most of it. BBC radio and the BBC world service would need to be funded, to keep Britain Great. The licence fee also funds other channels, not just the BBC, it funds programs that are in the interests of the general good.
  10. They are still fitting solar panels, not sure about Sheffield. https://www.betterhomesyorkshire.co.uk/solar-panels
  11. So long as they all use the same thing, then we can compare in the store. They could tell us on what date the cow was milked and let us make our own mind up?
  12. Ruddles is brewed in Rutland, England In October 2021 Clive Watson, executive chairman of the City Pub Group, said that the price of a pint of beer in the UK could rise by as much as 30p in the coming months to allow companies to cover an increase in minimum wage, rising input costs and a return to 20% VAT. So you best get drinking all you can for 99p per pint.
  13. Will I need a new aerial or even a new TV?
  14. It is 2% higher now because we have had a large increase in house prices, but the difference averages to 0.9%
  15. I dont know any roofers that are qualified electrians or qualified to install solar panels. You would be complaining if they fitted solar panels before they fitted a new roof.
