Re: Who's had the vaccine?

The change followed the availability of data on protection from the first dose, and the consequent recognition that it was possible to get a better effect with the limited supplies available by getting one dose to as many people as quickly as possible. As the JCVI put it: "Given the high level ...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

Isle of man are keeping their vaccination interval at 21 days instead of the 12 weeks interval the uk are leaving. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/iom-has-no-plans-to-delay-second-doses-of-covid-19-vaccine/ I'm very surprised by that. The IoM uses Public Health England, the MHRA and...

Re: When is remoaning not remoaning?!

Looks like our "frictionless trade" is paying dividends. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/jan/21/britons-buying-from-eu-websites-face-more-than-100-import-duties I do know a few people who've been stung by this. In theory you can just make sure the website you order from is UK ba...

Re: shimano rapidfires = JIS screws?

Would the drivers be these, by any chance? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bessel-Vessel-Difference-Screwdrivers-No-220w-3/dp/B00E55DL4I/ I am noting that I should probably have a set of JIS drivers, but there are so many choices.

The S.African variant in particular is scaring the hell out of authorities. We won’t be hearing our vacc’d to the eyeballs public school twit bumble on about it at the lectern. Preliminary tests show it requires 8X the current Pfizer dose to provide sufficient anti-bodies to guard against severe in...

Re: How oh how do you get a lockring off?

Have you tried getting the handles of the tools aligned so using both hands you squeeze them together to loosen. It’s worked for me in the past and my favoured position for pedal loosening. ^^^^THIS. Squeezing with both hands you can exert a lot of force. A photo would be very helpful in adopting t...

I don't know what the mechanisms are, but it's hard to see why a nation would wish to use a currency that it had no influence over. 1 Not having that influence removes the ability of politicians to act in ways that are politically desirable but economically damaging. 2 It reduces transaction costs ...

Could England unilaterally leave the union and keep control of sterling? If the answer is affirmative then it's evidence of England having unequal power in the union right there. It effectively owns the currency with other nations subservient in currency matters. I see what you mean about the asymm...
