    Press censorship

    It may well be under reported, but if there are ongoing trials, and reporting would risk the offenders not get a fair trial, then the restrictions make sense. And I'd expect to see more reporting of it all once the linked trials are all completed. There might have been lots of reports on...

    Press censorship

    He came close to causing linked trials to collapse. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/tommy-robinson-contempt-court-case-grooming-gang-trial-huddersfield-a8990436.html?amp I'd assume in this instance there are linked trials as well, probably the "10 more" you've...

    Wall sockets with USB power built in? Who has updated their sockets?

    When I looked, unless the Google WiFi has been upgraded, the WholeHome had an extra band. And were cheaper, which was the main selling point for us tbh. Our house is quite long, and the walls are all solid with it being Victorian, but we get a really good signal throughout now, right to the back...

    Wall sockets with USB power built in? Who has updated their sockets?

    For wifi take a look at the bt whole home. Mesh network with three access points for about £160 works really well and was cheaper than the competition by quite a bit when we got ours.

    Car buyers should have 'long, hard think' about diesel

    I can read thanks. You said "However in America an EV is more likely to be in an accident with cyclists and pedestrians." You didn't qualify this with any caveat whatsoever. Selectively quoting the sentence immediately following the point that it is not necessarily statistically relevant. And...

    Car buyers should have 'long, hard think' about diesel

    But overall, about the same accident rates as ICE cars. Probably more down to the mindset of people buying performance cars, and driving them like nobs. As opposed to it being EV. You also missed "Zahnd is quick to point out that the data is sparse so far and may not be statistically relevant...

    The constitution vs the law

    No. For it to be legal it'd have to be specifically authorized by law. Legal and illegal aren't opposites. Might be lawful or unlawful though.

    The constitution vs the law

    For it to be illegal it has to be explicitly disallowed by law.

    No, but it's potentially unlawful.

    Car buyers should have 'long, hard think' about diesel

    True. They are. The only EV that meets my range needs is either a Tesla or a Jaguar I-Pace. My old car is in need of updating, as it's 12 years old and getting more expensive to maintain. I'd love to be in the position to buy a Tesla, but I'm not, or could not justify spending that amount on a...

    Car buyers should have 'long, hard think' about diesel

    According to this, EV cars emit less Co2 over their lifetime, including when you factor in manufacture and using the most polluting energy generation. https://www.transportenvironment.org/press/electric-cars-emit-less-co2-over-their-lifetime-diesels-even-when-powered-dirtiest-electricity

    UK Government theft.

    It's like the "austerity measures", and min wage. They always increase min wage a bit, or announce more funding, immediately before an election and people forget the years worth of under-funding suddenly.

    UK Government theft.

    We get tax relief when we pay it into our pensions though, I see no reason why those of us lucky enough to have bigger pensions waiting for us should also get tax relief on our income post retirement.

    UK Government theft.

    The fact national insurance isn't voluntary kinda undermines that point doesn't it?

    UK Government theft.

    Ah I couldn't remember, been a while since I worked in pensions now. But then you get who don't understand it and complain about getting a reduced pension because they were opted out, but not realising they get more from their work pension because of it and are actually better off.

    UK Government theft.

    Because they just then pay out less post retirement. There's still no pot. I don't think you can do it anymore though anyway.

    Reportage

    Worth trying to get to one of Kev Mullins workshops if you can. They're only about £80 and you'll learn loads.

    UK Government theft.

    Plus nationalised services like in France add to their spending power. EDF are state owned.

    We were caught out by the first couple of villages, thankfully satnav had the speed limit on it so quickly noticed!

    Where to go for mortgage advice? A photography website obviously!

    If you haven't had it revalued then they'll just apply some indexation based on the average change in house prices between the date of valuation and the date of remortgaging. EDIT: Yep, looked at your screenshot now "HPI Valuation" = House Price Index Valuation

    Grey Vs Used. Am I missing something?

    The VAT receipt HDEW give you isn't valid as far as HMRC rules go though as the Vat Number doesn't match the name of the company on the invoice, it's the Vat No for their parent/partner company

    Car buyers should have 'long, hard think' about diesel

    So if it "doesn't matter how much more efficient an ICE gets as the weight reduces" then you have to say the same about EV, so the EV will get more economical as weight decreases. Even though the weight decrease by discharging the battery will be about the weight of a grain of sand ;) Even with...

    They removed that requirement. High vis for each passenger, triangle and spare bulbs.

    Driving in France?

    We took our own car over a couple of weeks ago, super easy. Lots of toll roads on the motorways, but makes for nice easy flowing traffic. Unless you're going to try and drive into Paris itself it'll be a breeze

    Car buyers should have 'long, hard think' about diesel

    It's not plus or minus 100% though is it.. yes of course it will vary, but I imagine not by very much, a couple of percent maybe. Technically an EV does get lighter as it burns energy, just not very much :) I realise that an ICE car is more efficient when it's lighter, but that efficiency...

    Car buyers should have 'long, hard think' about diesel

    Which is all true, if you ignore the fact that the accelorator isn't an on/off switch and the regen breaking on newer EV's isn't just on or off. You can lift your foot some, but not all the way and reduce speed down to what you want. I still don't really get the point of the argument anyway...
