Re: Scotland must be punished

Of course, a successful independence vote and the Barnett Formula are mutually exclusive.

Re: Price of petrol

Just been informed by my sister in law who lives in Alicante that Spanish fuel is reduced by 20% at the till, subsidised by the Government.
Funny not seen it mentioned in the media.

Re: Price of petrol

I won't be buying no hybrid car - I'll wait for full electric.
Everyone is telling us to buy hybrid, but it's because they've made too many.
Just like the days when you knew there were CD players but they forced digital tape players on us, because they'd made too many.

Re: Price of petrol

Tesco Diesel is £199.9 now.
Something unsustainable is going on.

Re: What deterrent?

Whenever I hear the phrase 'the need for skilled migrant workers' it is indeed a sad indictment on our education system and in house training systems.

Re: Price of petrol

Around 46% of the price is tax.
Sunak was quite happy with the tax revenue when it was around £1.59 at the time of the last budget. He is now making a surplus of 20p / litre since then. He could and should reduce it by that amount at least.

Re: The Honourable Member for the 18th century.

I read with interest that the Conservatives will field 50% female candidates the next Election.
Sadly, I have to report that we will still have Jonathan Djanogly.

Re: The Honourable Member for the 18th century.

There's no such thing as 'secret' ballot.
When you vote in a general election, they write your number on the back in pencil.
It's quite flattering to know that your big pink Willy drawing doesn't go unnoticed........ :safe:

Re: Will you ever fly again?

Probably not. My passport ran out last year and renewing it seems a bit pointless. Mine expired just before the pandemic kicked in and I CBA'd to do anything about it. There's lots of this country that I haven't seen yet so that's where my focus will be for the foreseeable future. Beware - It's pre...

Of course I am thinking those with triple vaccinations are getting on planes, and those with just a negative test are being sent home?
