  1. Back to the office for the first time last week. It's a bit of a trek so spent 2 nights in the Holiday Inn Express. No social distancing. Nobody wearing a mask. Now I have a cold 🤧
  2. My lawnmower died half way through it's job. Unless electric motors are meant to smoke from time to time. It was only 23 the lazy little shite
  3. Ghostery Dawn. Minimises tracking if I want it to.
  4. This would be the fishing boats that would get permits if they could show historical rights to fish the water as agreed in the Brexit terms except they can't because they all turned off their legally mandated transponders to overfish UK wasters while we were in the EU. No historical data no permit. Got another mate that manages a fishing fleet (outside EU).
  5. Here is the truck driver shortage in the USA. https://truckerjobusa.com/the-u-s-truck-driver-shortages-fact-or-fiction/ Of course caused by Brexit. Friend of mine worked for many years in international purchasing and logistics The USA were leaders in treating their drivers like dirt and squeezing the supply chain prices year over year. So older drivers left/retired and nobody new joined. It may have been slightly exacerbated by Brexit but it was going to happen regardless. Big buyers and RHA caused this over many years and did nothing to avoid it.
  6. Plus lower the barrier to entry. Getting trained and qualified is expensive. Other skill areas get investment from companies that need the skills. So if the training and qualification costs £10K say then companies should offer the pay this in exchange for let;s say 2 year commitment to work for them. Leave before that and you pay it back pro-rata.
  7. Precisely. We could speculate - "I don't what Lotus traditionalist think about an SUV not belonging in the Lotus line up" for example.
  8. Switzerland have their own agreements with the EU which means they don't require border checks but also restricts what they can do outside the EU. As I understand it they have lots of individual agreements rather than one overriding one. The EU don't like it as it is painful to maintain all the agreements so they want to consolidate to one. The Swiss so far don't like that is it imposes more restrictions. It's one to get the popcorn out for.
  9. The site has been purchased and will be converted to warehouse distribution centre. While that will create jobs the pay will be nowhere near that for a skilled Honda employee.
  10. I think I preferred the green when playing around and red interior over tan. With Yellow I would have the black pack but not with the green.
  11. Perfectly safe as long as they walk to and from the Malverns
  12. Because they all tested negative. Mount and Chilwell are isolating as a precaution
  13. And global travel was huge back then. Much easier than today
