Can't say as I've ever done a 0-60 sprint and only once gone for "I'll see how fast I dare take it" and bottled it before getting near to the cars top speed!

Yeah.....but the MOT was 10 months ago. Sod's law says the car will be well and truly f*ucked come the next MOT. :)

it's done 1600 miles in 10 months
which, looking at the history, has been pretty consistent low miles  for years

But as we know ,some NTs (MOT testers ) rush and don't prod too much ,other NTs seem to see the MOT test as a personal challenge to find as many faults and advisories they can  ;D

Also....

the MOT means the car meets minimum standards for brakes , suspension etc (a car is allowed "some play" in steering and suspension components etc and still pass ) BUT we know the big Vauxhall handles like an fat lass on a cheap waterbed IF the steering and suspension has any "play"  :P

it will be interesting to see what happens and their take on the OMEGA

Haven't a clue what all this streaming business is all about.Basically the TV I have at present has freeview built in which obviously needs the co-ax plugged in or I can switch to watching via the VM Tivobox for extra channels.What I was thinking of was to replace the present TV in my front room and put the present one into my bedroom which would in the main at least be used for watching the programmes I presently get on freeview,but wondered for the new one whether it was worth getting one with freeplay as opposed to freeview and if I did this how the signal could be got to my bedroom without wires trailing all over the place.I know indoor aerials can be bought but are they any good?I know at one time[many years ago such aerials were more trouble than they were worth.

I wonder if Boris reads OOF Genchat ? The media are reporting today that he is considering asking the Chinese to build it.

I jokingly left a comment on John Redwood's blog a few weeks ago suggesting we get the Chinese in when he was talking about HS2.

Didn't think for a second he'd take it seriously!  :o  :D

I hear that there are now vacancies for SpAds in Westminster following the Cummins cull!  Maybe I should apply, as whenever these characters emerge from the shadows, it seems that they are invariably young graduate types.  What experience of life can these young people possibly have to qualify them as advisers to Ministers?  :-\

It might explain a few things as to my mind a 'Special Adviser' to a government minister should at least have a few grey hairs!  ::)


 The Chinese have been asked to tender for this little job. Was on the news.

Ooops News just on.. Mr Grant shapos has denyed saying this, but is open to the possibility

It makes no sense whatsoever I agree. ::)

If while you were going through the planning process for an extension your builder trebled the price before he'd even got a spade out of the van, you'd tell him to go forth and multiply!  :)

But never mind it's political, common sense doesn't come near it, so we should just get on with it and do it well and your Great-great-great grandchildren can pay for it!  :-X   

While they're at it they can plan another branch to Belfast over Boris's bridge!  :y

Surely any state actor that wants to know anything/everything about individuals such as us already does. There's a programme on BBC on Monday about Amazon and, apparently, they already know too.
With regards to 'state secrets' and comms with our allies, then it's up to our government to protect those from everyone and, if they can't, then letting huawei into the 5G network isn't going to make any difference, because the world and his mate would be in anyway.

If it came to another state wanting to do serious damage, as an act of war, I'm pretty sure they'd be able to knock out our power grid and, without that, nothing else would work anyway. We'd probably be able to do the same to them.
Huawei are a private company. But Chinese law means if the Chinese state ask Hauwei to spy, or disable the UK's network due to a spat, they have to comply.

That's the issue.

OK, so not having your internet isn't a problem, but the country not having it is.  No phones. No emergency services. No trading. Shop shelves empty. No travel. The list goes on.

He says, looking at the http:// in the address bar right now  ;D
OOF does both, user choice ;)

Obviously, Chrome are planning to wreck https early next year, making everyone go back to http. But then we know Google are self centred idiots.

But... they've spent so much on it so far I think they should stop talking about it and see it through, and do it properly FFS!  Of course it's unlikely that they will, as they will continually tinker to cut costs and we will end up with slower and less trains than planned... and it may even stop at Watford!  ;D


throwing good money after bad is always a daft thing to do. Considering the current guess for HS2 stands at 110 billion, and the return for every spent gets worse at every review, writing off what has already been spent makes much more sense than continuing.


It's not as if we have 110 billion spare.
Not to mention the 37b a year to run it (which will rise), of which if they fill every train (over 850 a day) with full fare passengers, they guess will give approx. 18b.
