    Brexit Is Reversible...

    We will have the semidetached version for some years and by then a new generation will have risen up. I think the key issue now is not be part of the federal union as planned. All the rest is damage limitation and in few years no one will remember.

    Brexit Is Reversible...

    Too late now. The best we can get is not to be dragged into the federal EU which will definitely not suit the British. We have to keep in with SM and CU and ECJ to be practical and not lose the business that is largely here due to EU membership ie being an economy of industrial parts assemblers. I said all the time that the UK will end up with an adult version of PROTOCOL 3 to save face. Protocol 3 was a last minute face saver. Down on my manor people now realise how ignorant they were and thought it all be over next day. Now they say they don't want to talk about it. They have lost interest.

    Steam Packet to be sold

    £93 return foot passenger?? Now tell me that this is not true...Or that there is some special reason I have missed...I have two people with me who are interested. What's the catch? Special busy time?

    When is GDPR not GDPR?

    GDPR... down on my manor I first encountered on the City Planning Portal very recently. (The UK or England anyway has apparently had an on-line Planning Portal since 2002) Planning applications and responses/objections/support are (Now were!) published on line in a type of forum like MF. One could post a response having registered with the site but the poster's name and address was also on line to view as has just been confirmed to me by the Department. Apparently this latter is a grey area under GDPR so all the comments have been taken down. As from now you only see the applicant's proposals and official comments from "Highway", "Trees" etc whatever official body has an interest. It is possible to apply to the Planning Dept to view comments from private persons and their names are listed on line but not what they had to say nor their addresses. The Planning Dept has to send you each comment individually and they are looking for a way round this. Also, you cannot access the information using a mobile device or tablet. So you can't put an address on line like in a forum? I dunno? Rings a bell. Deja vu! (Can’t be bothered with the accents).

    So who do we believe? You or JW the knowledgeable, highly esteemed and most learned of the learned friends, JW the Advocate?

    MV Karina...

    No mention of when next survey is due or has taken place so if you bid it will be subject satisfactory survey. (Or that is the usual way)

    MV Karina...

    I have seen it written that MV Karina is on the UK National Register of Historic Vessels Certificate Number 1893...Although I had a quick look and did not see it on there. Should have an ensign indicating registration. The alternative is the National Archive of Historical Vessels also with an ensign but this applies to ships scrapped or gone abroad or not known anymore.

    Smart Meters are coming

    My meter is smarter than I am. I looked at my account with E.on and it says 9th April 2018 6 : 13th April 2018 15 : 14th May 2018 79. So is it that I had used 79 units up to 14th May 2018? Seems rather low...? Doh!

    OK!

    Smart Meters are coming

    For some of us the term WiFi has become generic for that type of thing...As it happens the installer used the term WiFi when he explained the reason my gadget would not work at a distance from the meter cupboard...I neither know nor care what is called.
