How did the Kintyre fast express get to Portavadie from Islay?
Round the Mull?
That’s about 80 miles, quite a trip!
Through the Canal?

- Chancellor’s liberation of pensions the most radical popular empowerment for decades
If you take £100k out of your pension pot under the new rules, you will likely have a marginal tax rate of 20%, so £20k to HMRC.
The remaining £80k?
Invest it in a sound equity giving +4% dividend yield (Shell, National Grid, Severn Trent) over 4%, say £4,000 per annum, plus some capital and income growth prospects.
Will your £100k annuity pay £4k, with inbuilt inflation adjuster, a year with protection of the capital?? (no it won’t). It might pay 4% headline rate, but at the end of your life it will be worth diddly squat.
If you buy a new car, 20% VAT to HMRC, so the multiplier for HMRC gets larger.
On the other hand blow the lot.
At least its your decision.

Even if one of the other officers was in control, the master is responsible for the safe operation of the vessel.
The buck stops with him.

Just got a mail from A&B Council saying their app was up and running, and I have installed on my iphone.
Doesn’t seem to work on ipad yet.
- Glasgow helicopter crash: now the questions – but why no black box?
The weight of the Honeywell Advanced Flight recorder is 8.8lbs.
where major efforts were made to recover the box from the mid Atlantic. The box was eventually recovered by a robot submarine from 3900 metres depth.
I don’t think 9 lbs is here or there in respect of a helicopter like that which crashed, but I imagine these bits of kit are very expensive.
I would support a regulation that all aircraft operating within UK airspace should have such a device installed.
- Nationhood: Talking about Renewables
208-TI has a half life of 4 minutes. It decays to 208-PB which is not radio active.
The % of 208-TI left after just 7 hours is 0.000000000000000000000000000002%
and half that every four minutes from then.
So I don’t think we need to worry about that too much.
