I see that VW is to compensate some 90,000 motorists in the UK who bought their diesel cars from VW. What is this compensation for? How are these motorists out of pocket? Is DVLA going to retrospectively charge each motorist because their road tax was underpaid? They were in the wrong category as obviously their engine kicked out a lot of pollution, well over the limit of the category they were placed in. If not, then they are being rewarded for polluting the planet. Us petrol heads aren't being compensated for abiding by the rules (although we pollute the planet too). Anyone know.
Eeeee, when I wus a lad, Leeds were known as 'dirty' Leeds as they kept kicking their opponents. With no subs back then, they figured that if the other side went down to 10 men they'd win the match. They usually achieved this within the first few minutes of a game as the ref was always reluctant to send anyone off for their first foul. Fast forward to today and guess who's bottom of the Fair Play league? It's Leeds, 486 fouls in 33 matches. 93 yellows.
Here's a blog from a doc I stumbled on a few months ago when I had Covid and wanted some facts and not opinions or government spin. The first vid I saw of his was brutal 'cos his interpretation of the facts had no sugar coating. This vid is in the same tone but the message about Omicron is encouraging. I wish this guy was my doctor. Watch the first 90 seconds and you'll watch the whole thing. Proper facts delivered concisely and with no fuss.
Wasting my afternoons watching TV quiz shows. Question? Which team did not feature in the 2019/2020 Premier League season? Ipswich Town, Manchester City or Liverpool. Contestant admits he knows nothing about sport but thinks he knows this one and got it right. Ben said Ipswich haven't been near the Premier League in Seasons. That hurts.
Shelves are suffering a shortage of crisps apparently. Microchips are also in short supply. Crisps are called chips in the US. Maybe they're not producing 'crisps' 'cos they won't contain the microchips so the govt. can track you like they do with the vaccine.
Business Secretary Kwasi Kwateng said the government was "concerned about instances of shortages".
"I don't want people to get the impression that every shelf in every supermarket is bare - that is not the case but we are certainly concerned about instances of shortages, we are looking at the supply chains of critical industries and we are reviewing that situation," he added.
I'm off to the shops with a 'You can take this toilet roll from my cold dead hands' attitude.
