  1. His main crime is being totally unfit to run the country.
  2. Haven't stopped insuring them yet. Who is giving anyone who has one a hard time, if you can afford one and they suit your needs then crack on no problem at all with that? My problem is with this rancid Govt enforcing them on the population much like Heat Pumps which are also not wanted and are unaffordable and impractical to 95% of the population. My point is the vast majority don't have the ability to install a home charger. They are way too expensive for most and will be worthless SH when their battery needs replacing, an awful investment depreciation wise unless you lease and swap every three years. Petrol and Diesels can run for decades if looked after and are way greener than an EV when you look at their total Carbon foot prints. There are not enough rare metals to go round for them to be the norm by a country mile and their extraction is very destructive. EV's are simply not green, it is all one huge Government con to price the plebs off the road.
  3. They are totally unfeasable for 90% of the population on both cost or charging and if they can't be exported or travel on trains of Ferries what is the point. Plus new battery at 8 years means they will be worthless near that age when the cost of a new battery is 10 > 15k. Is the mining of all the precious metals green no and on top of that there will be nowhere near enough, the whole idea is a woke none starter.
  4. Well one caught fire and sunk a ship full of luxury EV's because they couldn't put it out and it spread, wait until insurers refuse to insure any ships including ferries carrying EV's. It absolutely is a very real problem. A friend of mine who makes fire retardent material has been tasked with making material to contain EV fires, the fires are ferocious and take hours to put out. EV's are not the future and they are not green in any shape of form.

    Lead ban

    No it's ban on their use so no way of using up Lead legally.
  7. Thankyou, many challenges for everyone currently in all walks of life.
  8. I have been in it 22 years and usually shoot between 3 and 5 a day. Last year our birds vanished, we got innundated with Foxes and our releasing part of the land was sold at Auction with many viewings and I suspect poaching also on the back of this. We were far off the beaten track and remote but got advertised to the country. It was also ridiculously warm throughout the season, we had one cold day the whole season.
  9. I took early retirement partly to keep youngsters in work when Covid struck, I was at an age when I could get at my Pension so I did wanted 3 more years but unreal times. I don't have an index linked Pension so inflation and huge Shoot increases I cannot protect against. The warm weather last season saw us return 20% of our usual bag that we have returned for the last 22 years I have been in. We shot 50 odd birds from 600 put down and the fees are now £1050. I shot 5 last season and the season before we put 700 down then could only shoot 3 days because of restrictions. A real shame but I can't see things changing the climate is warming, we rarely have true winters now. I think we should just pay the rent and rough shoot.
  10. They will be used as a lever to remove him.
  11. Some wonderful land I shoot on is being covered in Solar Panels, it is insanity and they are monstrous things in the middle of the countryside on Prime Land. Johnson is truly derranged and has destoyed the country in just 2 years. Carrie would shut her legs so no chance.
  12. Russia cannot go long term with these sanctions and they won't be removed with Putin in place. The Russians have no choice unless they want to end it all in a mad Nuclear exchange that will kill us all. How did we ever get here!
