Re: EU VISAs after Brexit

My guess (lots of ???) is that countries like Portugal, Spain and maybe Greece and France will introduce an easy to get 'tourist extension visa' to facilitate the many long termers that stay each year. This is unlikely to help cyclists much as it would restrict you to that country and you might(??)...

Re: EU VISAs after Brexit

I think it is worth having this discussion now. I wasn't suggesting that we don't have further discussions, I think they are useful and interesting. However, I do (now) question the validity of this post as a sticky. It was a good idea when first raised by Navrig, but extended discussion/argument/c...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

I see the Conservative Covid Denial Group are talking about rebelling against stricter tiers because it might impact their £££££ and they want a "cost justification". Any cost justification will be "interesting" particularly what the budget the "cost" against each death...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

BTW I had to think again to clarlfy to myself that asymptomatic means positive but with no symptoms. It doesn't mean someone who is virus free - that is simply, well, virus free - time to check this I think! That isn't right. Asymptomatic if unqualified simply means having no symptoms. Asymptomatic...

Re: iPhone app icon colours

Not (as far as I know). Some 3rd party apps allow you to change their app icon (which mostly means select from a range of the same icon but in different colours). But not found any way for Apple apps and only a few 3rd party apps provide such a feature anyway. For no particular reason (i.e. not to a...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

AIUI, the countries which have been able to depend on test and trace stopped the infection getting out of control from the outset with strong border controls, something which should be facilitated by being a group of islands. But in those countries did mates of the leader get prestigious jobs despi...

Re: Repeated Bullying By Your Boss

An unpublished NewsBiscuit that I felt was more of a summary of the situation than a "parody" Home Office to free all the criminals who ‘didn’t mean it’ Home Secretary Priti Patel has explained the latest concept in criminal justice, ‘Unintentionality’. According to the theory a person who...

Re: Repeated Bullying By Your Boss

Al Where you have confused me is over whether you think she has been the victim of injustice (a witch hunt) or if your vast experience tells you that swearing etc at subordinates is good practice. I think that sort of behaviour should be avoided because its wrong and counterproductive. Yes, I think...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

My simplistic (and undoubtedly technically "wrong") way of thinking about "what public debt is" is that it is what we have to pay back. So borrow £100m to build something we have to pay back that £100m to whoever owns the debt. That we may be able to make some money from whatever...

Re: Repeated Bullying By Your Boss

Can you explain what this means? As Al's failed to clarify let me interpret it for you. In Al’s world some people are better than others, let’s call them sergeant majors. Also in Al’s world some people are weak and foolish, let’s call them ninnies. SM trump ninnies so therefore treating other peopl...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

I wonder if it's more than just what is done with "the economy" or rather basing decisions on flawed belief on impacts on "the economy". I don't know details of all of those countries on the chart but I understood that many of the far eastern countries had far better other strate...

Re: ...How to make my bike/trailer/seat light up like a christmas trees

Expensive but https://beryl.cc/shop/laserlight . I don't have one but if I was riding at night often I'd like one but projecting behind me (for cars approaching from behind). In fact if I was regularly riding after dark I'd probably pay that price, even in rural quiet country lanes. Edit: Cheaper ve...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

I think what he's doing now is searching for some psychological prop to justify to himself however tenuously that he didn't fail. And his threshold for that psychological support is dropping with each court case thrown out. It will be interesting to see how low that ego threshold will drop. I hope f...
