Some of pictures of the Wanaka fire, first 2 while it was going on, second 2 some 15 days later. As you can see, quite big, took 8 Helicopters, 6 ground teams and some 8 hours to put out.

We were supposed to be going up the road you can see on the right hand side when we went out on the 3rd, guess what we didn't do !! Second lot taken when we went through Wanaka on our way to the Blue Pools on the 18th.









Hopefully I've got the coding right this time and won't need Marks help !!

:)

It's typical Boris misdirection to hide a monumental opps up.


We'll find out in a couple of weeks that he's signed an irreversible deal with the Krikkitmen, and we're all bound into slavery for eternity.

The bridge would be a good idea with one very strict proviso. It must be one way, from this side of the channel.

Well in that case we might as well save some money and only build half of it!  ;D

No, lightships are a completely different thing altogether... :P

Lizzie only mentions is because Ashford is already a convenient lorry park. No one else mentioned it because they neither live in Ashford, nor particularly care. ::)

Cheers bud,
I’ll let you know, the parts are en-rout apparently, coolant loss at the mo is manageable, topped up once a week or so!

There is the rather important matter of the Channel being full of heavy ships proceeding up and down the World's busiest shipping lanes....


Incidentally a bridge linking Africa to Europe near Tarifa has been mooted for some time. Not quite as long as the channel bridge but that too is a “ busy “ shipping lane with heavy ships.

Excuse me for being slightly pedantic but arn't all ships heavy?  ::)  :-\

Surely light ships vessels are generally known as boats?!  :-X  ;D

When you see the huge bridges that the Chinese have built, it is clearly feasible.  :y

However the fact that it would cost us ten times more than what the Chinese can build stuff when you factor in the cost of labour, materials, health & safety etc makes it a non starter.  ::)

In theory it's a good idea, and I think we need to be ambitious and think big when it comes to infrastructure.  Like the Victorians did! :y

I agree with your sentiments. We have become very adept as a nation at sticking plaster solutions. New runway at Heathrow is a good example. Got a date for opening? Of course not. We are good at saying why something cannot be done. Anyway the channel bridge wont happen. Brexit will be the excuse when our European friends decide or more likely fail to decide on a trade agreement. Of course if Brexit is reversed then the EU will pay for the bridge as a sort of welcome back present and to facilitate the fast movement of migrants.  ;D

Perhaps we could get JC to part the waves!  ::)  :D

Jeremy Clarkson does not have the power. ::)

Just the ego!  ;D
