Re: Gmail Tracks Your Purchase History

Re: Do we actually need HS2?

Hmmm. Wasn't HS2 announced by the outgoing Labour government in 2009-2010?

Dr Beeching was not responsible for the rail cuts. Beeching was Ernest Marples 'fall guy', hired to do Marples dirty...

Re: Do we actually need HS2?

No, we don't need HS2.

I suspect the only reason it is going ahead is for the present government to save face.

The case for HS2 was proposed in 2009 by the Department of Transport during the...

Diesel Engine Runaway

My Peugeot diesel was giving me an excess engine oil warning. This probably resulted from a failed burn-off of the exhaust filter prior to the cause being remedied. Such a failure is know to push...

Re: Electric Vehicles Emit more CO2 than Diesel

Re: Electric Vehicles Emit more CO2 than Diesel

Re: Electric Vehicles Emit more CO2 than Diesel

I am reminded of the anecdotal frog in a pot (or something similar) on a stove - the temperature slowly rises and the frog isn't alarmed until it's too late.

Re: Electric Vehicles Emit more CO2 than Diesel

Yes, that's the idea. You also have to wait for at least an hour while you recharge your car. So you can spend more money in the Motorway Services playing on the video games.
