I know you are a bright spark, that much is plain from your contributions, which was why I was a bit surprised at your dislike of pouring scorn as you put it on Boris? Why should we not criticise someone who we consider is wrong. Worse than that there is a lot of evidence to show his policies are wrong, worse than that he has been showed up as a liar, and been sacked twice for it.
Does he not deserve criticism??

Surely we have to call out those who are blatantly following their own agenda over the common good, but at the same time we must also try to consider the other side.
It is tricky for sure but what for example should we say to Lawson, or Delingpole?

I wear a mask because I am a poor delicate boy, apart from not wishing to spread the dreaded Lurgi.
I despair of the protesters and lump them in the same bracket as over-unity generators and flat-earthers: the tin-foil hat brigade.

Desp, I'm not JRM, I was born in a cancel aass like a lot of others, but I am bright enough to spot the fools when they open their mouths. It doesn't matter what brand of fool it is, The worst sort of fools lose elections because the ordinary folk don't like 'em. Plain and simple; carp policies that make no sense.
If the opposite brand of fools to the current incumbent start coming up with sensible plans and ditch the imbecilic no-hopers, then I, along with a host of others, will elect them. Until that happens, we are all in the same boat, and the boat-rockers are NWOV.

I was supposed to be on Octopus Agile tariff at the end of July, due to install of SMETs2 meter install at the end of July. Two subsequent engineer visits later, 'cos no one could get it working, it turns out there is no WAN signal for SMETs2 in my area. No one can even give me a date for it, contacted Arqiva who are apparently the North/Yorkshire contractors for the WAN rollout but heard they won't talk to consumers (yeah probably correct as no reply). Bit peed off TBH, scuppered my power plans for winter!

Anyone know anything about plans for WAN rollout in Easy Yorkshire?

       We are out in front of you.
 Yesterday, In Letterkenny, The Las Vegas of Donegal,
 We had a hundred anti Mask supporters giving out stink about our lockdown which is now in progress. The Garda looked on but did not make any arrests. The media turned up and the camera crew and commentator were all kitted out in masks which drew the fire of the protestors.
   The report said that quite a few of the protestors were from the UK. Their speakers were saying that the virus was a hoax and that our schools were in training to be prison camps. I know that we have our fair share of lunatics but most of them are delighted to travel incognito  behind their masks but 100? Against wearing masks, ?
   There must be some mistake.

Thanks BtB,

I guess it is a very wide ranging and all encompassing subject, which is why as you say we really need switched on leaders to come up with a rational plan and then to sell it to the general public. Of course it is a two way thing though, politicians will try to sell an idea as long as they think there are enough votes in it. What comes first, Chicken or egg?

After 10 years with guttering there is still damp in our sunken wall, I would accept it will always be there and cover with a ventilated stud wall. The other option is to leave exposed stonework as we have in another section and this works OK.
The only major issue to the exposed wall was an electrical fault in a plug socket as moisture condensed in the unit.

If you live there full time the house should naturally vent, we have a bit of a humidity issue but we do leave the house locked up for long periods.

Where are you located? We are just outside Auzances.


Hi there, Mr Smith. We have bought our place in the Haute Correze about ten minutes south of Bugeat high on the Plateau Millevaches. We have friends near Auzances in the commune of Charron . Interesting to hear your comments. Are you speaking about your property near Auzances? We did think about a stud wall but want to avoid anything like plasterboard. We are very keen on using hemp lime as much possible. I bought the excellent book "The Hempcrete Book" by William Stanwix and Alex Sparrow and there is loads of great info in it. The French company that supply IsoHemp blocks have said we should not leave an air gap but infill the gap between the hemp block wall and original stone wall with loose fill hemp lime (tamped down) so that there is no void. I am worried about damp incursion. I have read that hemp lime should not be deployed in below ground situations, but it is only the rear wall which is below ground? Apparently hmp lime will take some element of damp? We plan to excavate behind the house to the depth of about a metre and to lay a plastic honeycomb membrane against the rear wall. This sits proud of the wall so allows air flow. We then backfill with grade gravel and drainage tubes. What do you reckon?

Desperate - wow, what a segue. PV to sex and relationships in one seamless step  genuflect

I still think the biggest group to convince, and yes it is a political issue, is the general population. We all put our recycling out and do ‘green’ things, but what does the man on th Clapham Omnibus think of sunshine and wind providing all our energy needs ?

This loops back to politicians - these are the people that have to set out, promote and champion our energy strategy for the next 25-50 years.
