Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Interesting graph of rolling 14-day averages poll results that gives some indication of variability, spread of data, etc. Apparently Guardian are going to be updating the graph on a daily ongoing basis to could be an interesting page to watch (for anybody wanting to put any particular poll results i...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I'm getting quite tired of Johnson's "set piece" staged "visits". Another example reported today: Sixth form pupils confined to room during Boris Johnson school visit ... Boris Johnson was accused of avoiding teenagers on Friday after hundreds of youngsters were reportedly confin...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

The modern trend for the press to look closely at candidates can be qute revealing, not only about the candidates themselves but also about a party prepared to accept such people t represent them. e.g. Tory election candidate once suggested women should ‘keep knickers on’ to avoid being raped or (d...

Re: Solar panel

I tried out a 14W 3 panel solar panel in Spain a number of years ago. Obviously the tech has improved since then. I found that mounted on the rear of the bike gave minimal output even in bright sunshine. However, stopped and positioned properly (and moved as necessary) it works very well....... My ...

Re: Room temperatures

https://www.bmj.com/content/363/bmj.k4306 Room temp.jpg Study was done in China on a Chinese population, may not be applicable in western Europe. Interesting though. I was wondering about that related aspect, not Chinese but about how much these effects are determined by what you are acclimatised t...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

..... Which also feeds into another wild speculation from a talking head I don't hold much regard for (Trumps ex PR guy that lasted for less than 2 weeks, can't remember his name) but his thought made a lot of sense. He was saying he thinks it likely that Trump might pull out of the next Presidenti...

Re: Room temperatures

Serious health risks below 16 degrees? What are these health risks? Temperature in my house is below 16 degrees for probably about ten months of the year at least. Currently 11 degrees inside, 4 degrees outside. Might put the heating on next week. The source document full text A healthy indoor temp...

Re: ** The Climate Change Thread **

Interesting idea and one I'm surprised has not come up before now. It never occurred to me but the report makes me think it really should (given how other aspects of issues facing society have rightly become part of the educational syllabus). Italy becomes first country to make climate change lesson...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

An interesting (and worrying) aspect to the future course of Brexit in relation to food standards and the Welsh & Scottish Borders. Seems food standards are devolved matters and if the UK Government accepts lower food standards for it's much heralded US trade deal (the chlorine washed chicken an...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I see Gove says that Johnson started from zero and got a EU deal in 90 days. Untrue. Fact: he took May's deal and made it worse. I see it as taking May's deal and reverting one aspect to it back to something previously proposed and agreed to by the EU but rejected by the DUP (and thus May). So his ...
