    Classic PR fail

    Or if they dressed a pink one in army uniform?

    RIP Captain Butcher

    The idea is being mooted of increased taxation to better fund the NHS, I believe this will have strong public support and one of the major parties will put it in their manifesto. The other lot will seize the opportunity and claim, dishonestly, to be able to do the job without raising taxes. Voters will express strong support for the former then secretly vote for the latter.

    The purpose of an enquiry....grenfell.

    Can of worms. The Grenfell residents have as far as I have seen objected to several proposed enquiry chairmen for being from the "wrong" section of society to understand them and their lives. There seems to be a need for the enquiry to serve the survivors and their agenda. Tragedy makes instant experts, Leah Betts died from extasy and right away her parents become the first call when expert opinion on drugs policy or toxicology is needed.

    Brexit 2017

    The biggest revelation to me from the referendum "fiasco" is that it never once occurred to any of the mainstream political leaders that there might be the least possibility that the vote would be to leave. This is a shining example of how the people who govern us are living in a different reality to those they govern. The referendum would never have happened if they had any inkling of opinion in the country as a whole. I don't think even Johnson and Gove thought the result would be anything but a strong remain.

    "Piano Raft"

    Always been obvious that London is the centre of the universe. The massive subsidy London gets from the nation really needs spreading out a bit.

    Seriously? Seriously had a boat that's haunted? Of course not, ghosts don't exist, the observed phenomena is actually down to fairy infestation. You can put down poison bait to get rid of them.

    Don't worry about the disapproval of puritans who set their heating by a calendar instead of a thermometer, they're doing it wrong not you.

    Sorry for temporarily derailing the topic. See what I did there?

    You are living in your own world of wishful thinking.

    Brexit 2017

    The Holyrood vote. Is there a logic to opposing powers going to Westminster that on a point of principle should be devolved to Scotland, when the first preference is for them to remain in Brussels? Support for devolution or opposition to brexit?

    Annoying alarm.

    And if it's an engine battery alternator then an alternator with a blown diode, corroded connections, an earth on the stator and a loose belt would probably keep it up.

    Annoying alarm.

    I will go further. It's a field diode. If it was a main diode then the resulting voltage difference would stop at the audible warning blocking diode. One or two alternator system?
