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

There is no doubt that some Remainers are very annoyed that the people were ever asked to decide this matter, although amusingly they are now eager for them to be asked again and again until they vote correctly. Not "again and again" but simply to be certain that that is really the positi...

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

I wonder if the so called squeezed middle or left behind lot realise that when they next go to buy a new Mercedes Benz it may well cost them a lot more because of Brexit. Luckily I have no interest in such a purchase. Indeed the only time Ibcrossed parhs with such a vehicle, a Spinter, it proved to...

Brexit has become an all consuming political death cult.[/quote]

Yep. And the pound is closing in on an all time low. Just in time for the school hols!

Prepare for some inflation-if you can.

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

IMV one confirmatory one would do. End the wrangling. Lay the thing to rest. Make sure democracy is served. Leave with agreement or not. Or the simple status quo and stay. I imagine that deciding which options should go on the voting paper would be a controversial process. Are you proposing three c...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Cugel, Another late reply.sorry. I don't really like to labour the point but Roubaix kinda said it anyway. That point being that a standard domestic solar installation cannot produce enough to heat a house even with a heat pump, run the other stuff and charge an EV or even a bike. Now the fact that ...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

I agree and going backwards is certainly not what we want.
One would have thought a sensible level of help towards a low carbon economy would be within the capabilities of any normal Govt!
Sadly in this case.....

Shine on that sun! :D

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

I know your a fan Kwackers and I am too. I think solar is fantastic though I am less happy about old subsidy levels. Such subsidy's credentials as fully "green" are questionable IMV. Note Cugel's example above! But as in most things I like to think of myself as a practical realist! Even wi...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Cugel please excuse delay in reply. Was out for supper. Thank you for your answer. I was interested in the simple sum Does a solar installation cover an "eco house's" electric? Without an electric vehicle on top.? So as I suspected a standard 4kw solar installation does not provide enough ...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Cugel it looks like you are the only one! Whatever will we do when fossil reserves run scarce? :shock: I am interested in whether your solar panels do in fact cover your total annual electric consumption? A family member has ground source heating, an older installation, and more recently roof panels...
