  1. Am I wrong in l liking the black wheels? Imagine the anodised roof and door trim finished in black too.
  2. Beyond the call of duty? I can't see any ppe at all in that one.
  3. Small companies also have no idea of when it ends and what business is like then. At lockdown I spent the whole weekend texting my guys to see who was prepared to do what and what they thought would happen in the coming weeks. Companies that furloughed their staff will be hoping they can make things work out when it's easing off, but I don't think even the hospitality sector thought the long term implications would be so catastrophic.
  4. Aha progress of the paperwork kind Fresh from the dvla.
  5. Or maybe the government knew they would lay off staff of they didn't get a wedge off the taxpayer? Those big companies probably let them know what would happen before the rules were made.
  6. And I'm still waiting for my historic v5 after over a month. I think the dvla might all be self- isolating and can't work from home due to data protection, so it's netflix instead.☹
  7. And it's amazing what can be done with a trolley jack and a piece of wood. Your inspection pit should have a cover (for safety as well as working on) - traditionally about a dozen 3" thick planks sitting on ledges, but maybe a substantial aluminium plate with castors that drop into the corners when fitted, or plastic rails that would allow you to slide it out from under. Great thinking, great progress
  8. I can't imagine demand for flying reaching much over 50% by the end of the year - this is going to be the same for many businesses especially hospitality. These companies are likely to be looking at radical downsizing in order to survive. Its going to be very ugly. The long term picture isn't looking that good either, so it might not just be a case of weathering the storm ☹ Of course the management will be looking at ways of protecting shareholder investment first and foremost. All those companies saying" our top priority is the health and safety of our staff and customers" whe
  9. I saw that and thought they've packed 500 people together to reduce evacuation risks to a couple of idiots compared to a land or sea based evacuation. Covid death rate at 1/2%, there's a good chance the helicopter evacuation did more harm than good. Or maybe the air ambulance controllers did the cost benefit analysis better than me? I certainly hope so.
  10. At last! a chance to start using up all that loo roll!
  11. and you only need the shorts for essential journeys!
  12. It's called quantitative easing - at least it was last time, only last time we gave it to the bankers and they used it to pay themselves some handsome bonuses. This time at least people might a) need the money and b) actually spend it rather than put it into an offshore trust for their kids
  13. I wonder whether some people don't want to make skin contact with the seat, so either aim from above or stand on the rim. Even so it can't be that hard can it? They need the marks on the floor and a red cross to aim for. Like the old squat loos in a remote French railway station? Porcelain distancing, max 0.2M?
  14. Is it only campsites where people actually miss the bowl with the crap? I mean how do you do that? This is well before the social distancing x marks the spot
  15. Some of the young see it as an old persons disease, and that if it spreads quickly through the population, that will shorten the mess. Of course it will make it a lot messier, but if the alternative iis lving out our lives under the threat of a plague, with no end in sight, i see their point. I was a punk rocker, and humanity has survived plagues before. I see their point. Doesn't mean I agree with it though.
