  1. Just like LACS, Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rights, anti Capitalists and all of these other lefty snowflake preacher/disruptor rent-a-mob types.
  2. Thanks, but just me picking up a quote from elsewhere (that I thought worth sharing).
  3. What you say is certainly true and a good idea - unless you are in an old property where it is pretty much essential to have some air 'drawn through' in order to prevent excess humidity. Old houses don't have modern damp proof membranes etc, and relied on the air being changed (by being drawn up chimneys) to keep the house dry and 'aired'. An alternative is a forced ventilation system with heat recovery, but these are difficult to integrate in older properties.
  4. Some truth in this quote; "To all the school kids going on 'strike' for Climate Change: You are the first generation who have required air-conditioning in every classroom. You want TV in every room and your classes are all computerised. You spend all day and night on electronic devices. More than ever, you don't walk or ride bikes to school but arrive in caravans of private cars that choke local roads and worsen rush hour traffic. You are the biggest consumers of manufactured goods ever and update perfectly good expensive luxury items to stay trendy, Your entertainment comes from electric devices. Furthermore, the people driving your protests are the same people who insist on artificially inflating the population growth through immigration, which increases the need for energy, manufacturing and transport. The more people we have, the more forest and bushland we clear and more of the environment is destroyed. How about this... Tell your teachers to switch off the air-con. Walk or ride to school. Switch off your devices and read a book. Make a sandwich instead of buying manufactured fast food. No, none of this will happen because you are selfish, badly educated, virtue signalling little 'princesses', inspired by the adults around you who crave a feeling of having a 'noble cause' while they indulge themselves in Western luxury and unprecedented quality of life. Wake up, grow up and learn to research facts and think for yourself and not blindly accept the words and thoughts of others - I don't think you formulated this action plan all by your self - suspect you may have had some influence and 'guidance' from those you trust ....a word of warning, be cautious of the influence of the 'left' because there may be a time in the future that you will be the ones left out."

    BREXIT

    I don't disagree at all - BUT assuming we leave - with approximately (at present a little below) 50% in favour of the EU, it is only a matter of time before some political party (or parties) offer 'rejoining' on their manifesto. As views change and the population of older who remember the EU and all of its failings drops off the end - the present small majority for leave may erode and a majority for rejoin emerge. There are always opposition parties like Labour and LibDEm who would take any position on Brexit - if they thought it would have a chance of putting them in power. They do not care about the EU - they want to be in Downing Street.
  6. Probably not, but having mentioned it, you may get 5 phone calls a day for the next 3 years from dodgy lawyers offering to take the case.

    BREXIT

    Yes. I voted remain, but accept that leave won, so let's just get on and leave.
  8. Thanks: I can't see how any 'promise' of performance after installation can be worth anything (either in law, or to anyone with a bit of common sense) because the overall result achieved will be dependant on the weather/sunshine. It seems to me a bit like someone trying to claim for a mis-sold holiday because it rained and the brochure showed sunshine! I know people with panels and (at least some of) those who got in early and got the high feed in tariff/subsidy before it was reduced seem to have done OK. Not so sure about people who missed the early 'sweetener' deals.
  9. I read that mis sold solar panels may be the next big compensation claim. I don't know if they mean solar panels that warm water, or those that generate electricity. Personally - I don't see how this can work ........ as I would think any 'promise' of energy/heat from sunlight in the UK is on dodgy ground anyway - ever heard of British summers, or clouds? However, truth, solid facts, or weather never hampered a dodgy lawyer.

    BREXIT

    Yes, in short, whilst they may not like us, they like our money, our fishing etc.

    BREXIT

    No surprises there - just as one would expect when Jean Claude Junker is a Luxembourg citizen. He has set it up to feather his own nest.

    BREXIT

    I am not a lawyer, but possibly there are many and varied 'opinions' of which this is just one. It may be that Government lawyers believe that they would have little chance of this being upheld in whatever court it has to go to (EU Court of UK Supreme Court?) Lawyers are usually quite capable of arguing any case backwards and forwards from both sides until one side runs out of money to pay them.
  13. /\ This is the answer. For me anyway, I do a very 'mixed' lot of shooting from walked up grouse, a few smaller days on 'typical range' (i.e. not dramatically long range) pheasants and partridges, the occasional charity 'fundraiser flush' and a few 'for fun only' sporting clays with friends. I could either have a few specialist guns such as a light weight quick gun for walked up, a general purpose game gun for pheasants and partridges, and a sporter for my clays - or do what I have done and have just general purpose guns (all 12g, mostly 28" barrels) and enjoy using them with suitably chosen loads. For clays typically I use 3/4 oz and for game, 1 oz or 1 1/16 oz loads. These are used in mainly either AyA or English s/s, or 'game' type o/u 28" barrels. My normal 'go to' is a 40 year old AyA No 1, fitted to me and with 28" barrels. I do have a s/s with both 28" and 30" interchangeable barrels and prefer the handling with the 28" set.

    BREXIT

    That was somewhat 'delegated' to the electorate by holding a referendum in which the electorate was very clearly told "make no mistake .......... a majority for leave means leaving the EU". IF our MP's really know so much better than us ignorant peasants - they why ask us such an important question ...... and promise to follow through on the outcome? I sincerely hope that there are no 'Thomas Mair' type incidents - which will solve nothing. There should however (in my opinion) be a number of MP's loosing their jobs because they have wrought immense damage on the country.
