Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

Halal means killed without stunning across the Muslim countries but in more secular nations there's a fudge that kind of ignores stunning. Personally I buy our meat from Booths supermarkets. I think but don't know for sure that their meat isn't Halal. Bear in mind all the big supermarket chains actu...

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

Funny thing about diplomatic immunity. The killer wife of the US spook apparently lost immunity by going home as soon as she went home she put herself in the position of being subject to investigation and potentially extradition to the UK to stand trial. However, it's likely to be the driving equiva...

Re: Concussion (?)

Check out patients.co.uk and the. Mayo clinic from the us. The first one is what my gp uses to explain things to his patients. Usually I just read up before I see him to save time and have further questions that it doesn't answer ready for him. :D

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

PS if you don't understand the origins of the name Forest of Bowland then it's origins come from hunting ground. AIUI the origins of forest is as a hunting grou...

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

The last leader of the GDR was interviewed recently and he said the cold war never really ended it just changed. He's a big fan if Putin and Russia too. I suspect he's right.

Re: Extinction Rebellion

On the other hand there was the online news piece that I read about people owning EVs for some time and using it without issues and for long journeys not too differently from how they used their previous ICEs. It's not all there, there's issues for sure, but picking one case send condemning it. Roun...

Re: Rugger World Cup Fri 20th ITV

Is rugby a particularly brutal and exhausting sport? Do the players need a week to recover between games? Why is the word 'game' used? 'Fight' or 'battle' or 'challenge' might be better At that level the answer is about a week recovery. It's attritional. If you've got short turnarounds you'll get i...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

I read a piece about ev users that put a few myths away. Stories of people travelling distances with EVs without any issues with charging. They plan their journey to stop at regular intervals and charge up while they take a break. Bear in mind you're recommended to take a break from driving every 2 ...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

So renewables aren't providing a higher percentage of our national electricity supply for example? As I said it's probably not happening as your want them to or as fast as you want. Glad you accept 2025 , a key part of ERs policy such as it is, isn't possible. At least you can accept reality. I just...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

So AIUI the government had set up an inquiry if independent experts to determine how, when it's realistically possible to get to zero carbon emissions like ER want by 2025 . They had it sitting, taking evidence before ER appeared. The government got the advice, published it and legally committed to...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Phil the Greek is more likely to just mow them all down in his range rover. Two reasons, bleeding anarchists and they're in the way the peasants! I fear you may be right, there. But didn't he hand in his driving licence, recently? Not that I suppose that'd stop him.... Send him out with knives on h...
