Re: Porsche Taycan first drive - Fully Charged

Not Taycan related, but I suppose this could just be the general 'relaxed electric car thread', seeing as FC is a pretty laid back show. So, MG ZS electric? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kc3soIPQAg&t=1s Cheap, decent range, available, perfectly reasonable build quality, 90s warm hatch performanc...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

I'm an optimist (although I have to keep telling myself I am :lol: ) so I think it will squeak through. I think there's a chance that enough members of the opposition will get teh fear, given many EU representatives comments about not wanting an extension. Both Govt and EU fingers are ready to start...

Because they're told from a young age that the very worst thing that can happen is getting old so they do anything they can to try and stop it.
And because they stop getting roles once they're over a certain age, unlike men. Generally.

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

It is if the EU say no to an extension (justified on the basis they've now put their best deal on the table and don't want to wait 9 months for a further referendum), i.e. its this deal or no-deal. No way would the EU turn down the option of a path to a 2nd Ref if it was a possibility. Anyway, that...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

Seem to be rumours that those that were only yesterday suggesting a 2nd ref would be tagged onto any deal passing, are now rowing back from the idea of a 2nd ref, and simply focussing on defeating the deal.

Me, me, me! Well, I say read it. I meant I started reading it, then my eyes crossed and glazed over, and then I realised I actually have quite a lot of work to be getting the f**k on with :lol:

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

I wonder if there'll be many Labour MPs willing to defy the whip - they must surely see that the party as it stands is unelectable. Maybe take the chance of getting a deal passed, let the party crumble, and try and take some of the spoils in its reincarnation?

Or is that too much to hope for?

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

Boris & Juncker "If we just tell people there's a deal everyone will go along with it right?" :lol:. There is a deal. Whether it will get through Parliament is entirely another thing. It won't, obvs. I doubt it would even with the DUP on board. The opposition will not want to accept that Johnson mi...

Re: Climate change protestors

I also saw one of their loons on the Today programme last week. Even found myself in agreement with Jess Phillips FFS, when she pointed out that they had to get the public onside, and that their stunts were more likely to damage their cause and turn people away from their message. She also said they...

Re: Climate change protestors

Can we put them to work on giant hamster wheels, generating electricity for the rest of us? They'd be doing their bit for sustainable energy production then.

Re: Climate change protestors

It's a nonsense isn't it? For XR to be successful they need to take the public with them, and stopping the working class people of East London from using electrified mass transit to get to work is not going to engender them to anyone. I was also reading that XR's claims go far beyond the IPCC's own...

Re: The Weather Thread.

Nice and sunny here today in rainy Manchester :D It was lovely here today, but my lawns are nothing but mud now. They’re going to need returfing thanks to being completely waterlogged for a couple of weeks. What you need is a nice thick carpet of moss growing over your lawn. It's like walking on a ...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

Unionism is like communism. And most other isms actually. Good idea in principle. But then the human element messes it up for everybody. Very much depends on how it is implemented. Works well in Scandinavia (in general). In the face of a corporate behemoth it is often the only option to get them to...

If you don’t like back when you park you’re a NCG? I’m confused? Is that the gist of it?
