Re: Brexit process

Disagreements on fish are laughable. It's such a small industry compared to the ones they are throwing under a bus. It's not about soverignty, it's "what agreement (or lack thereof) makes my friends the most money".

Re: Will landline telephones work in a power cut ?

Not just new connections. All existing PTSN and ISDN will be switched off too. I think the last order date for traditional lines is 2023.

"easily sold"? Just takes someone like Farage to call it rationing to destroy any hope of majority public support.

I agree something needs to be done though. Perhaps a tax on all the unnecesary smart devices.

I am not sure I follow the details. Are they going to VoIP from the streetbox to the exchange, or are they really going to turn off analog house phonelines? How are people supposed to troubleshoot faults? edit: some techy thoughts here: https://forums.thinkbroadband.com/technical/4639165-pstn-switc...

As far as I'm aware Openreach is intending on phasing out all ISDN and PTSN lines by 2025 to be replaced by VoIP services.

The last bit is pretty standard for business loans though. The only bit I Have any issues with is the second part. Nowhere with general guidance (even the british business bank) has stated any of that at all. edit: looking on Lloyds site I can see it now. Cheeky f**kers, not putting it on the BB Ban...

There is no exit. If we recover from this there will be another crisis sooner rather than later - there always is. It's for society to try and ride it out as best as possible. Looks like the UK isn't the cohesive society our government likes to tell us it is, every man for themselves in many (but th...

This sort of saving "social cohesion" just gives ammo to the racist scum. Perhaps them and the rapists can share a cell.

I'm surprised sales of plug-in hybrids are to be banned at the same time. I can understand it, say, 5 years later (although a minimum range, say 75 miles, would be a good requirement too). Might make some peoples transition to fully-electric a bit easier.
