    Paul GB Rail freight USED TO move a lot more than that ... but the rats & the scammers & the crooks got at it & freight on rail was deliberately thrown away, usually for political/corrupt-our-friends "reasons" Difficult to put...

    Pigeon No, it's real & it's utterly bonkers Wierdly we did have such a system in some cities - they were called "Trolleybuses" ... but were scrapped in a long-term fit of insanity in the 1960's Nojay They are re-inventing...

    JBS @ 720 They are proposing electrifying with TWO cables on the M-mays, when they already have a purpose-built freight transport network - the railways, that need only ONE cable? And the railways have dedicated rights-of-way that are difficult (...

    I have just posted the following to the "FT" after a scary article on Saturday: How ironic & utterly terrifying that, in the same week that Simon Kuper asks: "Does the elite treat the country as .. something it's looking...

    Coffee I very rarely drink coffee out of home, but when I do I can recommend "AMT"- not cheap, but well-made with serious quantities of caffeine in it. At home, I use a drip-filter device - spoon in the freshly-ground...

    Going back to the original title & the "new Management" - in the "real" world... How long before the main body of the electorate finally revolt at this open corruption & demand the bastards OUT? Incidentally 3 current bills in...

    Rbt Prior & whitroth That shows just how utterly fucked actual public transport ( "Transit" ) is in the US .... Most commuter heavy rail services in London run at 4 tph, my local UndergounD line at 20 tph in...

    Charlie @ 561 Then, will someone PLEASE get it into the Treasury/DfT's head that it ISN'T GOING TO WORK? Various people have been telling them this for several years & they are still burbling on about hydrogen-vapourware-powered trains ( including...

    EC It's very simple, actually & I'm very surprised you have not spotted it. Consider future traction power on the railways ... Electrification, right? But in the past what Roger Ford has called "Bionic Duckweed" was the preferred DfT/Treasury solution,...

    Going back a short way .. You in the US are commenting as to how the White Wing are resisting vaccinations, right? Here, it's the other way round. BBC short piece in Newcastle, about "Why is vaccine uptake so low...

    H @ 294 Almost There's also the point that BoZo wants "yes-men" ( & women ) & is a vain egotist, with a spiteful streak. But - I don't think he's got either the competence or ruthlessness to be a...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    EC I'm predicting it will all implode about this time next year ... but BoZo's PARTY has a majority until late 2024 At which point it gets interesting & unpleasant. Oddly enough, Patel as PM would provoke widespread rioting on...

    Charlie Important Addendum Some OTHER PARTS of the UN are very useful indeed, provided they have not bee suborned from within by "someone" with ulterior motives. UNESCO / WHO / UNHCR / FAO / IAEA / IMO / IMF /WFP...

    EC @ 206 After the 1997 & '73 wars, Israel' then (& sane) government offered: "Land for Peace" - to EVERYONE. And was consistently rejected, with (almost) all the Arab countries determined to continue with attempted genocide ... one result...
