Re: calculations centering on 12 volts

Or, you could save all that faff and just take a couple of OS maps. Oh yes! Simple is best!! And also spend interesting hours pouring over them discovering things in the area one never knew existed, without a battery care in the world. Another simple solution for those not OS map inclined would be ...

Re: I drove a normal car yesterday

All of which convieniently ignores the carbon cost of making (and buying) a new or nearly new vehicle. Google gives a host of results concerning this but this gives a flavour. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/green-living-blog/2010/sep/23/carbon-footprint-new-car To my mind, and I am not alon...

Re: Agriculture

Hill farming does not of course primarily mean the "high hills", though they can be a part of its system. But rather the vast tracts of marginal land in the UK between say 100 and 4 or 500 meters of altitude. Within which there are pockets and slopes of quite high fertility. Often difficul...

Re: Roof mounted racks ??? - Best choice

Lots of good advice on here. Wind resistance, reduced top speeds and exposure to driven rain are down-sides; though rear mounted racks suffer more from road born dirt and grit. Some marking on a bike frame at the clamp point is hard to avoid over time. The model of car is a factor of course. Fixed r...

Re: Remember the ferry contract given to the company without ships?

Well I think it's disgraceful!

Along with other stuff, like our Covid virus deaths in comparison to elsewhere.

Re: Liberated by Dominic Cummings!

^^ But it may well be the Govt? Your quote suggests it might be? The buck stops with the Heath Secretary I guess and by some association with the Cabinet. If Cummings is an advisor then he advises? Or is he just employed as a media spin merchant? It is probably the latter, it is his special area, in...

Re: Liberated by Dominic Cummings!

This is ridiculous. He said it. It is irrelevant that it was reported in the Guardian. Cummings is a self confessed believer in eugenics. Yes, you are completely and utterly right. Your totally credible evidence and concrete proof have utterly convinced me. Still, it's a good thing he changed his m...

Re: Liberated by Dominic Cummings!

Dominic Cummings' low opinion of many MPs is clear. He holds many of them "in contemp" (sic). Unofficially, that is. MPs can say what they like. They may think they can summon whoever they like and they'll just coming running. I'm not going to go looking now, but I think the truth is not ...

I've started using my "great British common sense" Haha! perhaps that's wot the begger intended we should do all along... Of course that's what the government intended. Did you really think that in the middle of a massive health emergency it would be possible, in a few days, to frame a co...
