    The proof of the mileage/age capability of VAG diesel cars is in the time that they have lasted....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Unreasonably short lifespans for electric cars, unreasonably long lifespans for diesel. Prove that. I can prove that VAG have produced literally millions of diesel cars with a lifespan of at least 18 years / 500_000 miles on the original engine....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    A distinction likely lost on the Palace of Oathbreakers, who think that 34% is/should be an absolute majority. I'm not claiming this has any sort of statistical validity (and live in Scotland where a strong majority of votes cast were...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    And/or the least realisation that "public opinion" is a moving target rather than a fixed value. If 52% of a population said $thing in 2016, then it only takes 3% to die or change their minds for the population to...

    Well, I used to live near Glasgow (about 50 miles from Edinburgh), and the closest I've come to "going to Edinburgh in August" is once being taken to the Military Tattoo aged about 8. Even then we drove through, went...

    Indeed; in fact on line, a "like button" lets you say "I like this" without generating null messages. This is a real advantage when you have someone post subject-specific art on a time stacked column like this, and you then...

    And, indeed, if Cor Bin is a genuine Remainer, he will find the SNP are prepared to at least discuss a coalition....

    #425 - We call a 4-6-2 a Pacific in the UK too. And, indeed, a 4-4-2 an Atlantic. I note that there appears to be no such thing as an "Indian" (Ocean) wheel arrangement though. #436 - Perhaps you should...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Study of just how many nations "Yugoslavia" split into, and a realisation that at least some of those nations more or less constitute contiguous religious and/or ethnic groups seems revealing. (by "different religious groups" I mean Christians are different to...

    In which context, the Hansard Society reports that only 25% of the UK population are happy with the House of Oathbreakers' handling of Brexit negotiations. Even rabid Wrecksiteers agree that one!...

    Well, let's face it, Maybot is desperate enough to ask the SNP to break their manifesto and promises to Scotland and back her!...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Well, I can't remember now just who it was but one of Maybot's Cabinet recently said that she considers the SNP to be Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition....

  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    On another site I read, we have a South American (presently resident in Canada) talking about revolution in the context of Wrecksit. At lunch today a colleague suggested that UK was "the tail trying to wag the dog", and responded...
  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    Mibbae aye, mibbae nay. I had the impression that my statement in #391 applied to some Federal offences, such as "kidnap and inter-state transport". I don't know about state level offences, but at that level I think your #392 does...

  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    There is a documented "right to free assembly": The opposite of which is the right to leave an assembly that is saying something you don't wish to hear (hence "free disassembly" as an opposite). If you are being formally cautioned...
  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    That is nonsense; if you are being formally cautioned your right to free disassembly has been suspended. If you have been incarcerated, various others of your constitutional rights have been temporarily suspended, or possibly permanently revoked....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well, I pretty much agree with Greg, at least to the extent that I think both Mayfly (contender for worst UK PM ever I think) and Cor Bin have rendered their parties unelectable at least unless you have a good...

    Congratulations seconded. I've not been any sort of Worldcon member in years either though....

    Like most (for certain values of "most") (Glasgow) Herald readers, if you just say "Bain" to me in the context of politics, I think of the Herald cartoonist who signs his work "Bain", and not of "Willie Bain", who I...
