Re: Citizen Khan pushes ahead with the plan to shoot himself in the foot

Perhaps I'm missing something here. The article mentions (once, plus in the headline) that the think-tank producing the report are pro-Corbyn. I don't see anywhere where it mentions that they are actually his advisers - top or otherwise. Even the article says that the paper is a non-event, "with not...

Re: Citizen Khan pushes ahead with the plan to shoot himself in the foot

Repeating the link again it doesn't make your spin on the story any less a twisting of the facts.

...the leaders chosen advisors seem to be saying that a remedy to some ills is to do away with all private vehicles.
Even more twisting. Absolutely nothing in the linked story to suggest the publishers or authors of the report are 'chosen advisers' to the Labour leader.

Re: Citizen Khan pushes ahead with the plan to shoot himself in the foot

Then read it again: https://www.petrolprices.com/news/privately-owned-cars-should-be-banned-by-2030-says-pro-corbyn-think-tank/ this is the advice the Labour leadership are getting and they may be listening... Just did read it again. It says the report was written by "radical left-wing pro-Corbyn s...

Re: Big Brother is watching/listening...

They can only spy on you if you have a social media account of some description. It is up to the individual which if any they have and how they customise their settings. Apparently not. If there is a facebook logo on a web page, it drops a tracking cookie. As I understand it, that will track visits...

Do you really believe this? Emails are recorded in the sense that in the sense that when I email you we both have a ...

Re: Citizen Khan pushes ahead with the plan to shoot himself in the foot

All the answers why Labour are doing what they are doing with Transport may be here: They may be there. Bur almost certainly aren't. Those behind this report may support the currently Labour leadership but it's twisting the facts* out of recognition to suggest that it's anywhere near being party po...

Re: Citizen Khan pushes ahead with the plan to shoot himself in the foot

An engineer friend told me that most car combustion engines have design for optimum use at a speed that would result in the car travelling at about 50 mph or slightly higher (metric etc) one of the tests for "dirty running" apparently is at an engine speed that would be expected to produce a road s...

Re: Citizen Khan pushes ahead with the plan to shoot himself in the foot

Decreasing the average speed of traffic makes their engines less efficient and more dirty; Slower average traffic speeds are correlated with lower efficiency but that doesn't mean that lower speeds cause the lower efficiency. Vehicle engines are most efficient when running at constant speed (and th...
