  1. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    I don't recall any information being released as to how the policeman ended up affected, other than speculation. There is a considerable number of oligarchs based here, both dissident and pro Putin-possibly other factions too. There has been considerable investment in media by Russians, not all are pro state either.
  2. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    There seems to be a focus on Skripals car, perhaps it was put in to the air vent/heating system? Is it clear how the policeman acqired the poison, perhaps he either moved or searched the car?

    Didn't notice that! Might help someone though..
  4. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    As I understand it the individual responsible for the investigation into the chemical used is the replacement for Dr Kelly, who subsequently found in favour of Iraq's possession of wmd's to justify Blair's invasion.
  5. Paloma PH-5-3F (Not heating up)

    I managed to unseize the one on our previous boat, having used wd40 to no avail, by removing the circlip at the front of the valve and then turning the water pump back on-it shot out like a bullet! Something of a happy accident rather than planning. Reassembled with silicone grease we had no further problems. Would suggest having something ready to catch it as it could be dangerous and have someone ready to turn off the pump.
  6. Aldi "Special Boating Offers" 25th March

    Once found a brand new thetford abandoned at our local refuse point. On inspection, they had installed a bag in the bowl, cacked in it and then thrown it out!
  7. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    The brother of the current leader of North Korea was killed by a nerve agent, whose development originally took place here. I don't remember Britain being in the frame for that.
  8. The riser pound in berko seems quite tidal.
  9. LPG Generator

    A number of boaters do seem to think that these generators are quiet enough to run after hours-i disagree. Some of the most annoying noises are not particularly loud, tapping a pencil for instance is barely audible but will drive you nuts quite quickly. On the op, I doubt having a gas connection from boat to onshore generator would be considered safe by any standards. In the event of a theft you would be left with an open, leaking gas pipe. A dislodged mooring pin would cause similar carnage.
  10. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    No, just that all pictures I have seen have only shown the blokes in radiation suits. Another photo of our rapid response unit.
  11. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    This picture demonstrates the media spin perfectly, with those in the protective suits being observed by firemen in ordinary uniform.

    I'm not ot sure how you can conflate my post with your opinion, quite the opposite in fact. I can however agree with you on the second point.

  14. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    Surely this is the entire reason for different political parties, so that you can choose to support one that matches your beliefs, or am I missing something? My reference was to a councillor of a party-would you expect to be employed by someone and then disagree with the way they do things?

    This statement highlights much of what has gone wrong with recent political parties. 'Her' labour principles should reflect whatever the current party stance is, tempered with a base in the history of that wing of politics. Too many politicians have embraced the narcissistic individualism so common in today's society, which leads to constant power struggles by both factions and egotistic individuals, all thinking they know better than those who have been elected. The end result being governments bogged down with infighting, leaving the country to degenerate into chaos.
