No, farmers may not lawfully use red diesel in an estate car used on public roads. A farmer can lawfully use red diesel in a tractor or other specialist vehicle that is used primarily on private land and that includes limited use on public roads, for example to move from one field to another. A car...

If this virus was plausibly containable then maybe such measures make some sense. But, since it clearly is not and, given it is likely to be ciorculating for years if not forever, then bollocks to it I say. Just eat well, get plenty of sleep, maybe invest in some oxygen and some anti- inflamatories...

Should have been sentenced to treatment for the criminally insane, not prison. There’s no limit that way AFAIK.

FFS, you think face masks will do any good? You are going to be disappointed if you do. Unless you are a face mask manufacturer, then you will be quids in.

You are going to die Wood burner. OOOOOOooooo :shock: :shock: For a fleeting moment there, I thought there was murderous intent breaking out, even here on PowerSwitch! As we descend into the mosh pit of Kung Flu Damnation! :twisted: But then I saw that it was just the usual normal civilised discuss...

You are going to die Wood burner. You are going to get old, things are going to stop working as well as they did and then you are going to die. We are all going to die. Along the way, different modes of action can perhaps have some effect. But, a surprisingly slight one, when push comes to shove. T...

. You earn diseases because of failing to adequately maintain the system. That is a bit too new-agey for me. That is not new-agey. It was done in the past when people took care of themselves. Today most people have outsourced their “healthcare� to the various “health� services. Consequently...

Yes, it is very likely this is now going to turn into a new disease, like flu. No point in trying to avoid catching it. You will inevitably catch it sooner or later. Although presumably it will be dealt with like flu, once a vaccine is available. Change the thinking. With the acceptance you will in...

Got the ibuprofen and paracetamol. Surface and hand wioes, kleenex, bleach. And a digital thermometer, face masks (albeit the builder's type)
Well I suppose you could argue that lot might be usable for something, but for dealing with a virus, you need to change the approach.

British Airways stops all flights in/out of China, presumably other airlines will to. That's a major problem for all the 'stuff' that goes along for the ride in the hold. Chinese made drugs for example... Anyone got a good list of important Chinese exports we can now expect a global shortage of, bo...
