    Has Biden done anything at all yet, good or bad? The UK press report on next to nothing about US politics now.

    I clicked on a couple of these in my recommendations recently and enjoyed them. The youtube algorithm knows me better than I know myself.

    India has a very interesting culture still, with the...

    Ha, no. Not least because I've not got any social media accounts. That sounds more like the weird PRSE teacher at my school who lived opposite the park and seemed obsessed with teenagers drinking,...

    The more I see this kind of thing (people going back ten years to when the person was a teenager), the more smug I feel about deciding to not do any social media.

    Does make me wonder though. If I...

    Did a long drive on Friday night, not arriving at my destination until gone 3am. Stopped at a couple of services after 10pm and it really hit home how bad we are at providing facilities to HGV...

    Just been into London for the first time in 19 months. If I don't have covid now after packed trains and a few drinks with colleagues, I'm probably never getting it.

    Wasn't there an Imperial study recently that found the likelihood of catching covid and passing it on was lower when vaccinated? And that the impact when caught was also lower? The latter definitely...

    You can plug an EV into a regular socket. Charge at about 10 miles per hour. The superchargers do 200 miles in 15 mines, but the best charger for home and office use is 50 per hour.

    I've seen...

    I suppose there's there's question in all of this of what's a fair wage for a lorry driver. Supply and demand obviously dictates, but being paid greater than 90% of the population seems like a...

    You could argue that joining the EU created a lot of new jobs for HGV drivers. The free movement of labour ensured downward pressure on wages, which is good for making UK goods competitive. Obviously...

    HGV means heavy goods vehicle. £40k-£50k is the going rate.

    Legal max in the UK is 90 hours over two weeks, which is rigidly enforced by logistics companies. BUT...that's the driving time....

    Reality is the HGV shortage is caused by a number of factors. COVID causing a shortage and backlog of tests, Brexit and COVID reducing the available labour, poor planning for Brexit that didn't...

    Poop, what's wrong with giving a government contract to make PPE to the ex-landlord of your local pub?

    Than cnut needs to be in jail.

    Lots of companies already did this. Think I already mentioned that the company i work for moved printing and shipping to mainland Europe, while diverting deliveries of stock into Heathrow over to...

    Was never going to be smooth as soon as we were a year from exit and had no deal documented. Then we waited another 360-ish days to make a deal. Fuck knows how much that will cost the UK taxpayer....

    Agree, but I think this has been forgotten. I gather one big problem is going from a job to receiving benefits takes forever, with people being without any cash for weeks.

    Gross incompetence at best (again), criminal behaviour at worst.

    How do these people get held to account?

    Love it.

    Boris yesterday: schools are safe and must stay open.

    Boris today: schools are leading to increased virus transmission and must close immediately for six weeks.

    Gross incompetence....
