Couple of party leaders held in jail prior to sedition charges which carry up to ten years in prison sentences.

Not good at all.

With massive over capacity and diminishing sales in the European mass market, this was bound to happen. I wouldn't be surprised to find that PSA(which is partly owned by the French government) bought the whole mess just to reduce the competition. And that's only because VAG's spare cash is paying for their emissions opps up.


Makes you wish we had a government with the balls and competence to stand up for our interests long term. Or even short term

It was god wot done it...........again.

We live on a moving, living, planet without promises of what may happen next, as is the case with our lives ;)

Anyway, life would be really boring without "World events" :D :D :D :y

Moving through space at roughly 67,000 MPH whilst spinning at about 1000 MPH. :)

The old girl certainly has a fair turn of speed.

And we are all holding on by the grace of God and the skin of our teeth!! :D ;)
Actually all held on by gravity, as discovered by apples :P

Gravity is the least of mans worries, but on the subject of that force scientists are now identifying an interesting concept of Newton's observation.

Scientists are giving credit to it is not just gravity that makes the apple fall to earth, but also a case that the Earth is coming up to greet the apple. ;)

That was debated/discussed/pondered even while I was doing A level physics ... some 50 years ago !!  The theory of gravitational attraction easily allows for the large object to move towards the small one by a minuscule, almost infinitesimal, amount, look how the surface of the earth moves towards the sun twice a day... high tide caused by gravity  between moon and earth ...

What we never solved was the question set by Doc Hayward (our Physics Head was Justin Hayward's - of the Moody Blues - father.. he might not have taught me a whole lot of Physics .. but he did teach me a lot about music !!) ... who set us the question "if the earth moves towards the apple being dropped, even by a minuscule amount . ......   what happens if 6 apples are simultaneously dropped, one at each of the poles, and one at each quarter point on the equator" ... trouble was .. he never gave us an answer !!!  :)

I think the answer is as straightforward as you want to make it, which is how accurately do you want to measure any differences? Gravity varies slightly across the Earth's surface as NASA GRACE satellite is currently measuring at a far greater accuracy than has been measured before, where the earth is not a perfect sphere and the mass varies due to different parts of the earth being made up of different materials. You then also have the effects that the Sun, Moon and the planets positioning and distance have on the earth and apples.

I'm sure STEMO will be back shortly from walking his whippet and will have all the answers. ::) ::) ::)

swapped a 5amp fuse out for another, fan now working but lights not. But I'm not using right bulb, although it does screw in. Need to order the right bulbs and retest

The net movement of the CofG of the earth is nil, although there will be miniscule bulges in the earths surface centred on the points nearest the apples - effectively the apples will act as 6 mini moons so will cause 6 mini tides.

Measuring "Big G" was the most boring part of A level physics. ::)

That was, if memory serves, about our answer ... 'twas not accepted on the grounds of .. "too simple" .... but no further explanation given .... :)
