Can't remember where it was I read it, but there was a claim that as a percentage of the UK GDP, the fishing industry brings in less than the pornographic industry.

I had heard that it's worth less than Lidl.

The last few days have been a lesson for the fuckwit end of Brexiteers in just exactly how international diplomacy and trade dealing works - shouting "We're British! Move over!" holds very little weight and screaming "parliamentary sovereignty" matters for feck all beyond your garden gate. The first lesson in them learning what the UK's real place in the world is in 2020 is now beginning.

They're certainly out in force tonight on the BBC SYB, but most are getting suitably pwned.

Someone now out of my life dropped hints that I should replace my 5er with a Jag XF. I am glad I didn't.

Oh, and can someone wiser than me explain something I've seen on more than one occasion, such as this?

WTF is the deal with "3 pin plugs" ?? Or are the children espousing this unaware we had two pin ones for donkey's years, especially before the war and the introduction of what an old friend used to call "The People's Plug", a.k.a. the BS 1363 plug we use today?

Also European plugs are also 3 pin.

Mind Switzerland also has 5 pin plugs, that's even better

I know Europe has 3-pin plugs, you know they have 3-pin plugs... but why has this become an "issue" with them? IIRC the Swiss 3-pin plug is almost the same as the Brazilian 3-pin plug, if not identical.

The 5-pin one.... EDAS :D

Tweed Spitfires? WTF are tweed Spitfires? :shock:

Oh, and...
Or in terms people can actually understand - 0.8% of a moonshot.
It was a short production run, created during the aluminium shortage of 1941.
I expect to see one painted on your workdesk by this time next week.
