Glad to see that Toyota can be bothered to recall, even in massive numbers. All global car makers should take note. The customer has to come first.

Nothing to do with me.

More trouble than they are worth, probably expensive to buy and to service or fix when the electronics go wrong. Maybe good for old folks in remote communities.
Nice theoretical brain exercises though...

Let's hope some sensible compromise can be worked out for those Russian athletes who genuinely have not been using performance enhancers. Great to see them there, even in neutral outfits. Welcome, I say!

This referendum, unlike previous ones, has no legally binding clause attached to it. Parliament can still vote it down.

Nicola Sturgeon has said the result is democratically unacceptable for Scotland, and the path is now open for a second Scottish independence referendum.
(Maybe London could become independent, then join Scotland and Northern Ireland and stay in the EU.)

Shouldn't Scotland demand a re-vote and get people of bed this time?

SenseNSC: "Will Toyota be moving operations to Scotland then?
No. Japanese hate golf."
Just for a moment I imagined there might be some attraction there. They hate whisky too, come to think of it.

Common method of blackmail here, but in this case she simply sounds batty.

When a mammoth tramples through your mental framework and sense of right, it is easier to clap and say "Well done!"
Even so, I do not like this restart whichever way you cut the cake, even more so living downwind of it here.

There once was a man named Farage,
His mouth like a gaping garage.
"Open Sesame", he knocked;
Pandora's Box he unlocked.
"Cast off!"... "Wave goodbye to our barge!"

sf2k: "Now the part begins where you create an economy for the people that live there, not the millionaires and billionaires who lived off your labours and left you with little."
Labours? 100 years ago maybe. Immigrant labours perhaps. Most of the former working class are on the dole living in larger houses than mine and claiming housing benefits. Few of the people who live there seem to want to work. Whatever happened to the old work ethic?
A vote for change like this is for bored people, tired of the way they are, gambling that a change of scenery might bring something better. A return to a better past? To a better future? Well, it might...

What arouses him, the feel, the sight or the smell, I wonder? Remonds me somewhat of the protagonist Grenouille in 'Perfume'.

Now some have stopped running scared and shown true courage. Excellent. I just wish it had been more of a mix from both sides.

Staying with J acquaintances in Tokyo I was awoken at 6:00 am and we had to roll up the futon and clean the room, otherwise empty of anything else. Then some TV exercises followed by a simple rice and miso soup breakfast on the tatami mats. Nowhere to hide. Nothing to do except squat or lie down, or leave. Minimalist, but mind-crackingly boring. Am I a country mouse?
