    Did they ever sack them as they're all Directors My human resources / financial / administrative Director has been very gainfully employed for the last 38 years.

    Yes the days when £20 to £30K a year was a top salary for a senior IT guy and £25 an hour was a brilliant contract rate. in reality living the middle class life style as a younger person has always been on the limit for most self funding people. It's all supply and demand and I...

    started a topic Thumbs down America

    Thumbs down America

    Why is the American media doubling down on its hatred of the UK and its institutions? I've heard a lot of historically incorrect rubbish and anti British invective from their media since the death of the Queen. They've never had any class but this is beyond the pale. Why don't they ponder their own...

    replied to All nuclear reactors to restart by this winter
    As the panels will be up there for 20+ years and need a good anchor it'd be really stupid to install the panels before sorting the roof

    Also get an inverter with a passive heat sink and install it in a cool place such as a garage as the ones with fans chew quite a lot of electricity...

    replied to In Liz We..
    I doff my cap to anyone who has what it takes to manage the bag of ferrets that make up democratic governments these days. Boris is/was a great leader who got smothered by the Pandemic and Russian special operation but still coped and Liz will take things forward and succeed even in the teeth of the...

    replied to Russian falls out of window
    A fire alarm went of and he was seeking the fire escape ladder Seriously when I first visited Russia in the early 80's we were put up for the first night in a Russian tourist hotel that was simply a 20 storey block of rooms separated by a corridor on each floor with a door to the fire escape...

    replied to Doom: Energy Price Cap
    Perhaps we should set a cap equivalent to the one set by the French government on prices charged by French owned energy companies in the UK to ensure it isn't us who are funding the unrealistic French prices ...

    They'll need to sell them with an optional diesel generator

    I think Honda have got it right with their latest e:HEV tech which includes a petrol generator with your electric car. I've just ordered one as it makes the most sense financially especially as the finance deal includes...

    replied to Doom: Energy Price Cap
    I've just paid 83p per litre for heating oil and a diesel generator at an efficiency of 30% gives ~3KWh / Litre giving an electric unit cost of ~28p / generated KWh. So if from October the lowest price is going to be 50p/KWh from the grid given the price cap should people be investing in diesel generators...

    replied to Doom: Energy Price Cap
    OK they present these price caps as if its what you'll pay but its simply what an average consumer might pay. What's the actual real unit price and if the energy companies are simply tracking the real cost in setting their prices then how do they make windfall profits unless they've bought the energy...
