    In the meantime, not having learned from a whole host of stupid ideas which have backfired, scientist come up with another one - https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2019/05/fungus-venom-gene-could-be-new-mosquito-killer

    This is as nuts as the idea of putting chemicals in the sea which will dissolve plastics, probably along with most of the fish, weed, plankton and coral reefs.

    The HUGE difference is that evolution occurs over centuries and millenia,whereas we are facing mass extinctions of millions of species in mere decades.

    So the new tonight has been very excited about Ford closing down it's plant in Bridgend. A very sad day for all the 1,700 people who will lose their jobs and the BBC, rightly, gave 5 minutes to it on their 6 o'clock radio news show on R4. However, just after this sad news they took 20 seconds to let listeners know that 1,200 jobs are being created by Wren kitchens Barton-upon-Humber.

    Why didn't this good news deserve a similar level of coverage? North Lincolnshire and the Humber region is not quite as big an unemployment black spot as South Wales but with British Steel closing down just down the road in Scunthorpe shouldn't we celebrate a British company expanding in the UK?

    I understand where you are coming from FB but I do think that a high tech company which supplies engines to factories in a number of countries is likely to do more for the country than one which is basically UK only as far as I can see.

    The company has had BBC exposure before in more than one meaning of the term but we can still wish them well.

    In October, 2017, the firm featured on the television show Rip Off Britain

    Ok, I spend a lot of time driving around the country; which inevitably means toilet breaks.

    I hate hands free flushes!!!

    I know it's hygienic and all; but I'm pissed off with having my arse washed because of an oversensitive proximity switch.

    It's fair to say that Cricket has absolutely managed to destroy itself in the UK when the Women's Football World Cup in France is getting better coverage, record audience figures and more interest than England hosting the Cricket World Cup at the same time. Well done the ICC and the ECB for all those PPV deals.

    The Woman's World Cup has been great entertainment so far.
