Please can someone explain this to me: if so many EU lovers predict disaster if we leave, doesn't that imply that things were dreadful before we joined and untold riches befell us after we joined?
I have no such recollection.....

If they had mounted such an all-points attack on Theresa May at the beginning of her tenure, we would have been rid of her ages ago!

Tell her that you will pay for the heating from December to February (inclusive) but anything other than that she will have to pay for herself! ;D

How can we win against Europe if we don't ALL stand behind him?

They were called RadioSpares back then, Andy - and they were a lot  cheaper! :)

NO. I did my apprenticeship using those and a Cambridge dynamometer, both large and unweildy - especially the Cambridge; all solid wood and ebonite casing!

Ron.

P.S. The Cambridge costs sixty times my weekly wage back then. :o

Andy, you wouldn't be able to afford one of those old AVOs now - even if you could find one! ::)

When we had tax discs, we were instructed to place them on the lower left hand side of the windscreen so that plod/traffic wardens could persecute prosecute us.

Ron,

Good for you, DG. I was lucky; the masters at my school absolutely refused to give a political opinion, for fear of influencing our young minds. :y

Yes Albs, and there is a massive difference between "how to" and "what to" think.

Not wanting to tempt fate, but I bought a crank sensor from ebay 2 1/2 years ago (kindly fitted by Albs) for 11.80 delivered and it is still going strong!
TB, if you ever want me to buy anything on your behalf, just let me know..... ;D

The world is still about 2oC cooler than the global average for the last 1 billion years, found through the analysis of sedimentary rock cores, & more recent values also from ice cores & tree ring samples, where we are still recovering from the last ice age in this current interglacial period where the polar ice caps formed a mere 33 million years a go.

140 million years a go during the most fertile era on this planet in terms of the explosion in the number and varieties of plant & animal life, CO2 was 3000 ppm. CO2 has gradually dropped since then from the locking of carbon in the formation of fossil fuels. Cellulite (wood) plants evolved about 140 million years a go & when the trees died there were no wood eating bugs, funguses or bacteria around to break them down (as there are now) which as they were buried under layers of rock through heat and pressure created coal seems. Sea custrations evolved to have a carbon based hard shell armour and depending upon conditions these locked up carbon as they died & decomposed to form oil & gas or just their hard shells survived to form calcium-carbonate or chalk.

With CO2 continually dropping over that last 140 million years we were about 2 million years from an ice age CO2 low point of it dropping below 120ppm (in the last ice age it dropped to 150ppm) so 85% species of C3 plants die out & planet B Earth so it then looks like planet A Mars. The other 15% are C4 plants that can survive with much lower CO2 levels but their photosynthesis requires much higher energy levels so they are limited to equatorial plants. The good news was humans by burning CO2 & raising CO2 are actually saving the planet until the politicians & anti-Westerners realised that Western civilization is build on a plentiful supply of cheap energy & those who control the energy supplies (politicians & governments, rather than the people through their businesses) control the people with their imaginary bogeyman clear, tasteless, inert, CO2 which is vital for plant life & our entire planet B Earth eco-system.

Stalin told us if you repeat a lie often enough people will believe it & virtually everybody in the Western world believe, including most on here, that rising CO2 levels are a problem & to be 'good' citizens we all need to work to reduce them. Religions, Communist & NAZIS et al all knew that if you want to brainwash a population, you start with the easily influenced & converted, the children, hence the children's globally coordinated school strikes today.

None of this is going to end well for the planet or Western societies.

I have been saying just that for many years, Rods2 - and on here too! Vested interests and all governments' not-so-hidden agendas create these lies and then try to make us feel guilty enough to accept punitive taxation to assuege that guilt.  >:(

Metformin and Ramipril caused my kidney damage, so beware, Rods2!
