  1. Mean deaths per annum pretty consistent at over 3 since the 1970s. Time will tell whether the late 1990s to late 2000s period reduction is anything more than mean reversion but the subsequent increase would seem to indicate so. The non-change of Mountain Course fatalities compared to other motorsport events since the mid 1960s is the most damming issue. Does not cover the issue, as mentioned above in this topic, of the impact of serious life-changing injuries on competitors.
  2. Answer me do... Websites seems to say that an Irish locator form is required if you're travelling through NI to RoI, e.g. https://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/travel_and_recreation/travel_to_ireland/travel_to_ireland_during_covid.html "You must also fill out this form if you arrive in Ireland through Northern Ireland and were overseas in the 14 days before your arrival in Ireland." However Irish locator form does not allow EasyJet as a valid airline (since they don't fly to the RoI). Catch-22! Any thoughts?
  3. "This is one of my biggest achievements in my career." 1096 days to go!
  4. Everybody should Wang Shun tonight!
  5. Mostly relief, rather than joy.
  6. Speaking of fashion and glamour. 5th Oly 200 free final.
  7. Balvenie is generally a mellow option also. I have the dregs of a bottle of Port Wood bought when it was a lot cheaper than it would be now even if it was generally available, but the Double Wood is quite nice too. Or completely left field, try Starward Nova all the way from Melbourne but at a fairly reasonable price.
  8. Ice is definitely frowned upon by the purists. Try water, up to about 20% of the neat measure, makes it "more open, but less intense", so they say. If you're looking for something with a bit of mellowness, try Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or or Quinta Ruban, or perhaps Middleton Method and Madness if you want to go west rather than east.
  9. Sorry John, I've obviously touched a nerve. I shall leave you to your speculation.
  10. What do you think is correct, John?
  11. A commentard on the ever-reliable pprune.org says the following which seems to be the clearest summary I have seen:
  12. Don't know where the "£100m tax bill" comes from, further conflation of various issues, possibly. If APD is ditched, it will apply to all domestic carriers. If they all then increase their prices by £13 per sector, would that count as price fixing?
  13. It will still be due, if I understand correctly, just deferred - think they were originally looking for a "payment holiday"? I note the BBC is talking about a cut in APD, not sure how that would help Flybe.
