    UK Politics: Awaiting MV3

    And on that note https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-tyne-48347994 Farage's Milkshake thrower has been charged. I think throwing milkshakes (and similar) at politician should be treated the same way as civil disobedience. Its a form of protest that can result in prosecution. If your not prepared to face the legal consequences don't do it.
  2. FYI I can't do weekdays or next weekend as I'll be coming off night shift

    shadowbinding or red god?

    Your posting in the wrong forum. GOT stuff belongs North of Miscellaneous section of the board.
  4. I think you may need to try and find a full replacement for him myself. I do hope he is ok.

    Ok whatever. I'm crackpot because Farage really isn't a man of the people and is like a greedy fucker out for himself. and really doesn't care about exploiting people for money. Or I'm crackpot because the US system of healthcare is not in anyway exploitative? Or I'm crackpot because a system that is fair for all and free at the point of use is worse somehow that a system where some have and many go without, while the few at the top get very rich out of it? Or maybe I'm crackpot because I don't like Farage? or Brexit.

    Really? The first part was an explanation of the type of healthcare we do currently have in the UK. The no top up fees is a way protect us from a US style system. where people don't get treated because they have no money or go bankrupt. Farage want the a US style system because he can make money from it, which he can't do from a UK NHS.

    Our NHS is built on the premise of No Top up Fees. You can have private health insurance - a lot of types just give money for your hospital stays or illnesses and prescription costs. You can also buy instances that will give you hospital treatments. The big catch is if you are treated for something privately (so you can jump the queue) you can't then get NHS treatment for that exact same condition. Its a feature of its design so we don't create a 2 tier system and everyone gets the same level of care. Farage on the other hand wants a privatised system because its a lot easier to exploit people and make lots of money from a US style system and he is positioned in such a way to take advantage.

    Is a Drooght Coming?

    you may find people who left due to the Fl00b and show and larger member group return to the board if the Fl00b recedes. this may re-awaken the lit section maybe?

    Escalators... what’s the deal?

    Scot, you are truly not a Hobbit if you think an escalator is the same as a moving walkway (other than direction). I don't need mountaineering equipment to traverse a stationary / broken moving walkway. I do however try to stand to one side and let the big legged people pass.

    Electric Cars - Advise?

    I had my 7kwh charging pod installed yesterday. It charged my car up to 80% (when I have it set to stop charging) from 25% within 2 hours. This is much faster than I was expecting and very much faster than from a normal plug socket. this also makes the car far more usable if I need to go out after work. I'm still loving my leaf.

    Going solar, going solar, going solar

    One thing that may be of interest I seem to remember if you are buying a new roof then the Tesla solar roof is cheaper than a conventional roof, because the tiles are lighter so the roof itself has less weight. Of course this is for a pitched roof, but may be worth looking into.

    UKIP = Hard no deal Brexit with extra racism and nazi wannabe leadership Brexit party = hard no deal brexit. DUP Hard brexit with unicorn boarder. Torries = mostly hard brexit with maybe a deal Labour = brexit with a deal, just not any realistic deal. and if we don't get that maybe we will make some noises to a 2nd ref but won't follow though. At least this is my opinion. but both conservative and labour candidates will try to pick up remain votes especially those with a remain candidate and in remain constituencies (which work rather differently in the EU elections) Also may campaign on more than one issue. Labour have been making big noises to say they still kinda support a 2nd ref even if the leadership have no intention of ever allowing one.
  13. Start it when you get the sentences. you just might need to give extra time for the drawers (which is often harder than describing)
  14. I can almost guarantee (I'm not incharge of programming) that there will be karaoke at least one evening at TitanCon. It won't be an official BWB party since its run by TitanCon itself which consists of a core group of Eurobased BWB and special friends. I also can't tell you what night / nights this will be. As for WorldCon I have no idea what if anything is planned.
  15. sentence sent. FYI I rather busy this bank holiday weekend and will be unlikely to be able to draw until Tuesday. However the stars align and I get sent the next sentence for the next round today, I can draw it tonight, but for this to work I need it by 7pm UK time.
