    Really? I've heard lots of anti-cyclist rants as I'm sure we all have including that they get in the way and slow you down but never that they create congestion.

    You obviously haven't been following the LTNs or pop-up bike lanes in the news then
    It's crazy. The anti-LTNs make a huge amount of noise, but they're actually a pretty small %age.
    Talking on behalf of the 'silent majority' innit ;)

    We got a bit off topic for this forum ..large part my fault ... My bad

    No problem. It was refreshing to hear from someone who seems to share my views on the subject.

    I thought it was quite refreshing to see the traditional off-season doping arguments replaced with hydrogen V batteries, Bianchi V the world, and Dowsett V Corona.
    Maybe you should review the evidence for hydrogen doping

    Just shows again how much the big brexiters are supporting British jobs. Ineos to France, Dyson to Singapore. What next, Johnson to offshore his baby making factory?

    These people did not care about what is best for the UK, only on a course of action that would let them exploit it and line their own pockets.

    It's worth mentioning that many who supported Brexit in 2016 with its mild objectives will not be in favour of the dung heap we ended up with due to the personal ambitions of successive Tories.

    I feel robbed! I renewed this year and got a maroon one!

    Actually happy as it's nice to be different. 😉

    And voted in by millions of people again, every one of which has a view at least as important as yours.

    A lot of people agreeing doesn't mean that they are right.

  • Why would a company build a production line for ICE vehicle in a country that is banning the sale of the internal combustion engine in 9 years time?

    This is a green issue, not a Brexit one.

    I don't think it's a green issue. If I read this correctly, it's more to do with an opportunity that's come up for a better factory closer to key supply lines etc. I would find it hard to believe that post-Brexit trade isn't factoring in somewhere but I don't think that's the main thing either.

    That doesn't mean that Brexit isn't shite. Or that Ratcliffe isn't a hypocrital tax-avoider.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    He's just gone for the place that makes most sense for his company. He's no interest in what's best for Britain - what about him makes you think that he would?

    Not necessarily Brexit related at all.

    . He's no interest in what's best for Britain - what about him makes you think that he would?

    Advocating for an outcome of a referendum on the basis that it will improve things but then buggering off before you face the inevitable and well publicised consequences may be considered poor behaviour.

    Marketing a bootiful Bwitish car for bootiful bwitish workers amd then making it in France also...

    I guess he'll have an "oven ready" skilled workforce to build his car. The Smart factory is being shipped to China so that's not great for Europe as a whole.
