  1. I may have misunderstood your post so apologies...but the biggest contributor to climate change is CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels. Plastic also comes from fossil fuels, but only 4% of fossil fuels are used to make plastics. 90% of fossil fuels are used in transport, energy production and heating i.e. they're just burnt, and end up in the atmosphere. Plastic may be a handything that people can campaign against, but it is a drop in the ocean in tackling the climate emergency. It is the rise in global temperatures that will account for major extinction events, not plastic production.
  2. Lack of indication and too much mobile phone use really annoys me. My biggest bugbear is that there just seems to be a lack of awareness with many drivers. Turning right at a light controlled crossroads on a single carriageway road ( eg Netheredge crossroads or Psalter Lane/ Junction Rd) for example...so many right turn drivers don't progress far enough into the junction, which prevents people who want to drive straight ahead from making progress. It directly leads to congestion and is just lazy and inconsiderate.
  3. Oh, it will be a pact for sure. The Conservatives just aren't admitting how they've reciprocated. Everything about Farage's career to date has been "what's in it for me"...Lord Farage of Gammonshire to be announced in the next but one honour's list.
  4. Yes - the soundtrack was Iron Maiden - "Phantom of the Opera"
  5. Motor manufacturers investing billions in electric vehicles and associated infrastructure, to force people into not owning cars and getting them on public transport? Righty ho.
  6. But that isn't what happened. The two largest parties were demonstrably willing to implement the referendum result as they pledged in their manifestos. They just couldn't find an agreed path to do so.
  7. If you think that 31 Oct is the end, think on Churchill's words ( seeing as Brexiters are so fond of invoking WW2 imagery)...this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
  8. Brexit, if it happens, will just be the start. There won't be a clean break but years of negotiation on trade deals and other agreements. Get Brexit Done may be a nice electioneering slogan, but it is far from the reality.
  9. Sadly 2 Steps don't do their own pies anymore; they are Pukka now. Their homemeade pies were ace - I used to phone up to reserve on a Friday to ensure I didn't miss out.
  10. Except at the time she was a young journalist and Johnson was the editor of a magazine she occasionally contributed to. It's not hard to see why it wasn't raised at the time. It is how their subsequent career paths have played out that make her the more believable party in the story.
  11. Well either she's telling the truth, or Johnson is. Given he's been sacked twice for lying, and has a long history of doing so besides, I wonder who should be believed?
  12. Indeed he doesn't mix them up....he says that mass squared is not extensive, ignoring the units of the constants which make that statement incorrect.
  13. You're well below average on insurance cost ( assuming you're fully comprehensive) ...£470 is the average for fully comprehensive cover in the UK. Also your fuel costs are low...£25 a week. Public transport would have to be super efficient and competitive to tip the balance against your outgoings but other motorists would have a different balance. £70 a month on fuel is the average figure. Excluding the cost of the car, the average figure per month is £160 to run a car. I can see a future model of car sharing, public transport, private hire and scooters/ bikes being a sustainable alternative to vehicle ownership.
  14. Crothers also appears to think that the constants doesn't have any units. His maths doesn't look quite so well argued when that is taken into account. It looks just plain wrong. The mass elements of Planck, Gravitational and Boltzmann constants combine in the Entropy equation to leave a mass unit in the denominator. That cancels one of the mass terms in the numerator to leave it as an extensive term.
  15. Indeed. No wonder Farage described the BBC referendum coverage as fair!
