        Vote UKIP - don't get owned says:

        How often has the BBC allowed people to get away with nasty name calling about the Daily Mail? And yet it is no better. For example on HIGNFY it claimed Prince Harry snorted cocaine. This was read from an autocue by Jo Brand an anti-monarchist. So its OK for the BBC to be nasty but not the DM.
        Much better to have a President I suppose who hacks the phones of European leaders. I wondered where the NOTW got the idea from.

          Don’t expect a hard hitting investigative response from Miliband.

          Can’t get to the truth over UNITE with Falkirk. Good old Jim Ratcliffe has the gumption to deal with UNITE and has passed on facts to the police which miliband couldn’t, wouldn’t or didn’t know how to.

      On the subject of the Met Office what is it with them. When I go to the forecast map all I get is a zoomed in view of London.

      Who wants to know the weather in London?

      So you enter your location as “UK”:

      No Exact Match. Please select a nearby location …
      Swatte Fell (2.1 miles)

      Try entering “England”:

      No Exact Match. Please select a nearby location …
      Watford (3.6 miles)

      Obviously they have no idea. So why do we trust them with predicting the weather?

      It is an arrogance beyond belief that they imply weather accurate to less than 100 miles on a 5 day basis.

          They adjust the blades for neutral forces and break the shaft.
          The towers can not stand actually generating energy above their designed speed. They buckle.

          They burn up only when the control systems fail.

            I should have said real turbines. I was not including the toy town me too units.

            Look closely. The mast is intact. The blades are attached. Yes they are broken, but all of them, which means they were still moving.
            But most importantly the welded base looks intact. This could be a installation quality issue.

            Or the bolts could have been removed! These are insecure installations of very dangerous equipment. Nothing more that simple workshop tools are needed. I hear there is opposition to them.

        Their description doesn’t really balance with the C-Span footage, and they report her saying in the chamber what she said outside.

        D’erren B’rown would have been proud of this, and has demonstrated how it could be done in some of his shows.

        Perhaps the warning was on a more subtle note. If someone could be put into this state to do this, then putting a gun in their hand to do something else is quite possible. Big wake up call.

        NB: During the shutdown everything was not shut down. Much of government continued to function albeit without pay.

        The main distraction was the vets being denied access to war memorials, and people irritated that the national parks were closed down.

        Could I point out that the track of the low pressure is not the track of the winds.

        In isolation, since the system is moving West to East and rotating anticlockwise the winds at the North side are slower than those at the bottom. The winds in the middle are low.

        Further, it is travelling south of another low pressure centred north of Scotland. So the pressure difference to the north is low. Where they “meet” the northern system is causing opposite winds to this storm system

        To the south however is the high pressure of the Med. Therefore the winds are the addition of the storm and the winds that would be caused by the high pressure.

        Well basically. Nothing ever exists in isolation, and the Met office should know better than to show the track like that.

        So the highest winds are some where in the Channel region and not as the graphic depicts. IOW to Dover is my best guess.

        Actual wind speed are far more dependent on the direction, built forms and topology around you. So even if you are out of the main area you can suffer higher local wind gusts.

            All of these are important factors but what is the value you are looking at.

            Most wind models do not account for land masses, never mind local structures or locally created winds.

            In general a person will never know their wind speed. They just get used to a source. If it stays consistent then they can say tomorrow is twice the wind of today etc.

            As for forecasting they need a margin of error. To be safe! What is that margin?

            Have also been noticing for quite a while that the marginally more extreme forecasts tend to get wildly exagerrated by other sources. Quite who those sources think that benefits I really don’t know.

            xcweather forecasts get revised regularly; they did indeed suggest that an intense depression would sweep across the country, but it now looks a darned sight less intense than before. Wouldn’t want to be on a boat in the channel, mind.

            No doubt I’ll be staying at home tomorrow rather than going to work, but that’s only because the train timetable has already been trashed as a result of all the scare-mongering.

    Hi righties. In the last week I’ve read comments here that referred to darkies, co-ons and “feral rubberlips”. It is, of course, your right to hate whoever you want. I’m not here to advocate limiting your right to free speech. After all, if all the racists stopped posting here, there’d be no comments left. However, I’m curious about one thing. Johnson Beh*rry was awarded the highest medal for bravery after he rescued several fellow soldiers during combat. If you’re superior to him, as you obviously believe you are, why not enlist and go and fight in Afghanistan or Iraq, engage in combat and rescue more soldiers than he did, and then you’ll prove that you’re better than the “feral rubberlips”. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking a gutless, spineless, chickenhawk piece of shit who comfortably spouts racial slurs from your keyboard but haven’t got a millionth of the bravery this “feral rubberlips” has, and I’m sure that’s the last thing you courageous, tough keyboard warriors would want.

Instead, all you’re capable of is jokes about breastfeeding. Wow. You’re living the dream, aren’t you? I’m in awe of your discursive skills. But not of your complete cowardice. But it’s typical and to be expected of keyboard warriors who revel in posting garbage in the comfort of anonymity. Not one of you would go up to Beh*rry or any black person and call them a darkie or a feral rubberlips. So my original contention stands.

            I do indeed. Black, gay, lesbian, J*wish, atheist. I don’t call blacks darkies, so I don’t need to trot out the “I have black friends” line, because in my case I do, I just don’t need to use it as a preface to what I say. Now about that question you were going to answer but are still avoiding.

    While agreeing Dave has no strong intention of really leaving the club prefering sitting on the fence pontificating, Miliband and Clegg and their parties are so completely committed to dig the UK in deeper a Labour or Lib-Lab pact government will ensure you can never emerge.
    You make it sound like Dave will always be an ever and ever, permanent fixture fronting his party.
    Following UKIP success in 2014, while Dave’s inevitable removal a year before the General Election might result in very temporary uneasiness it would only take a Tory champion adamant at leaving and all your objectives would be acheived.

          Country is going to the dogs. Never heard the like of it. News just said all trains before 9 am cancelled in the SE. FFS railways are supposed to cope with gales, that’s one of their plus points and just to make sure they always send an empty train through first but never shut sown the whole bleeding network.

            Under the reign of HEALTH and SAFETY terror, it is deemed impossible to make a mistake of any kind , therefore every aspect of life, however unpredictable, comes under the ‘Cover your arse’ principal ,where it is better to exaggerate the smallest inconvenience into a potential catastrophe on the off chance that the tabloid press will accuse you of vast negligence.
            This phenomenon is not confined to this country, quite recently in Italy a group of seismologists were sentenced to a term of imprisonment for failing to predict an earthquake.

    Dunkley Fartmaster says:

    “Following a Prescott Fart in a Chinese restaurant near Hull, a very intense low pressure system is forecast to run southwestwards across England and Wales early on Monday, bringing the potential for an exceptionally windy spell for southern parts of the UK. At the same time, a persistent, heavy shitstorm could cause some surface staining, while the winds will lead to some very large waves around our coasts.

    “There remains slight uncertainty in the timing, intensity and track of the low as well as the northern limit of the strongest winds. However, the public should be prepared for the risk of falling trees as well as damage to buildings and other structures, bringing disruption to transport and power supplies. The public should also consider adjusting travel plans.”

      You can do some searching on uTube to find the original audio which was recorded when they got her outside. The audio is genuine, it is just that there was no audio really picked up on the footage in the House as the microphone was switched off. (You can max the sound out and just make out something like ‘Lord’ from another more distant mike which was active…)

      The real error is hearing the elevator ding apparently in the House. Oops.

      For the steganography with the stenographer, watch very carefully the original C-Span.

      On the subject of Hollywood, recall the film Blackhawk Down. Totally unrelated, but if there is an illegal arrest of a diplomat on a Somal! passport, that operation and subsequent film could have been more subtly alluding to failed attempt to recover the Black Eagle Fund.

      This is digressing into perhaps a bit of fantasy, but fun none the less. More fun than the fakery portrayed by Fox. Alluding to your three book reference earlier (and these ideas do fit into that area), perhaps a guerilla ontology, but then perhaps not ;-)

        You will laugh when I tell you my three books:

        Aristotle’s Ethics. Last read in 1991 when I was in Limassol. I can tell that because of the restaurant bill I had used as a bookmark. Three of us, we went through the card and it came to £21.30.

        Heisenberg’s Physics and Philosophy, last read in 1992, from 1958 but this edition published in 1962. To try and recreate the thinking abroad at a time when I was first politically aware.

        And then the daft but strangely endearing old socialist, AJP Taylor’s Europe: Grandeur and Decline, which I have never actually read apart from extracts. Napoleon’s defeat up to the very lovely Stalin. It will probably annoy me. Living in Habsburg lands impels me to try and have a better understanding.
