  1. At least we dont have to bail out private rail companies .
  2. Before i retired my last place of employment was University of Birmingham where they were working on Hydrogen powered vehicles they were small 2 seat cars, the "scientists" working on them did not hold out a lot of confidence in them as the energy cells at the time were very unreliable, some said that solar power would be better "if" they could develop a solar panel that would give fast charge capabilities .
  3. Thought we were getting another 50,000 nurses of which 19,000 already work for the NHS
  4. I will have the vaccine im 71 i have 3 children 2 of who i haven't physically touched in 2/3 months i have 6 grand children 4 of who i haven't physically touched in 2/3 months i have 1 greatgrandchild who i haven't touched in 2/3 months if it give's me some side affects i will put up with it ( most vaccines have side affects ) i know the vaccine doesn't stop you getting covid 19 but it helps you survive so to me no brainer if you choose not to have the vaccine ok but don't expect me to invite you into my home or area .

  7. Bought one last night from B&Q black and decker 18 v £30.00 at that price if i get 2/3 years out of it great only one battery no case but good enough for the steadies
  8. For me and shwmbo no brainer for all those who say no way or not sure its safe ( and i have family who are in this group) if you don't have the vaccine your choice but its also your choice to decline any treatment by the NHS if you get it allow those who wanted it but were further down the list and got the virus to push you back down the list.
  9. Do you know any one who caravans who could advise or even go with you to view 99.9999% of caravaners are helpful and will point you in the right direction if its towards a van or away from a van hope you find what you want just don't rush check and check again .
  10. As we sat with great expectation last nigh all the leaking was from the bbc and sky think johnson or cummings were doing the leaking
  11. Wife and i had the same thing with BCC tested and result text back within 48 hrs ( that was over a week end ) seems local authorities are on the ball unlike serco
