    Would you live to go back to a mobile free age?

    Looking at the bigger picture, you possibly would. Not sure that the debate is really about convenience, it's a lot more complex than that.

    An electric vehicle as they are meant to be

    Then why are EV sales slowing down?

    An electric vehicle as they are meant to be

    The sale of EVs is clearly led by technology enthusiasts - typically people who like to have the latest thing. Most people who are interested in EVs probably already have one. This is why we are now seeing a clear slow down in the EV market. With regards to EV owners not wanting to swap back...

    An electric vehicle as they are meant to be

    Make no mistake, gents - EVs cannot succeed in their current guise. But there might be some hope if the true spirit of an EV can come to the fore. An EV is effectively a city car (short journeys) in essence. They should be small, light and reasonably cheap. They shouldn't be large, heavy and...

    What's wrong with working from a portacabin?

    Yes, but that aside, why would it be used as a slur? That's the bit I'm puzzled about 🙂

    What's wrong with working from a portacabin?

    Hi gents, just expo here. A few years ago there was a syndicate on here that had a go at the scoop 6 at Royal Ascot. It was a time when there was a lot of horse racing talk with the likes of Kingy, Mr Issac, AMary and others. I chucked in £2.5k in the pot to bump it up and got a £10k return...

    Least favourite Cities in the UK

    London is the obvious one but Birmingham used to be pretty bad. Not sure what it's like now.

    Favourite City in the UK

    Newcastle followed by Edinburgh and Durham. Not sure why, but the cities in the North are much better than in the South. Perhaps it's a cultural thing. I think North East/North Yorks up to Northumberland and Scotland are the best places to live in the UK.

    Fury V Usyk.

    To say 'Usyk's punches weren't really doing anything' is a failure to understand the sport of boxing. Those early body punches from Usyk were clearing registering with Fury, you could hear them land. Quite a few people have also said that a single punch changed the course of the fight. That...

    Fury V Usyk.

    Similar to Lomachenko, Usyk has experience of Sambo which is a Soviet form of wrestling. This will be why he tends to look fairly comfortable against bigger fighters in the clinch. He'll know how to control the arms of opponents.

    Fury V Usyk.

    What a fight. The size difference between Usyk and Fury really hit home when you saw them in the ring. Usyk started well but looked in trouble in the early mid-rounds. But that ability to keep pressing and pushing the pace got him back in the fight in spectacular fashion. People might say why...

    Fury V Usyk.

    Terrible behaviour by John Fury. He's chucked his head in there with the intent to do some damage. As with this case, John Fury apparently has a history of targeting and attacking much smaller men. With regards to the fight, everything is against Usyk. Just about the whole industry favours a...

    The £5-00 Cup of Coffee in London

    Not massively into coffee, but really like the aroma. Might have a few coffees per week in the form of a flat white. However, not often keen on what's served in specialist coffee places. Normally just go to Cafe Nero in Knaresborough, it's Colombian coffee and is quite mellow. A lot of the...

    Where would you live around Darlington?

    There's plenty of houses with character South and West of the town centre. Think I'd rather be in walking distance of the centre rather than being out in Hurworth, Neasham or Croft, etc. It's nice to be able to walk to a pub, restaurant, shops or even the rail station where you're 20 odd mins...

    Why do you do the job that you do?

    I was into sport mainly, but did have an interest in computers and technology as well. I didn't follow or participate in it religiously, but used to envisage what was possible in the not too distant future. What happened was in basic terms - I came up with the idea of Facebook and YouTube pretty...

    Isaac Wilson's for sale £650k

    Not bad when you think some places will try and charge that for a 2 bed flat. Obviously you'd negotiate the price down and make sure all is good with the building. But surely it could be a good business with the right vision...

    Chocolate...Hot Chocolate

    Rest easy. Probably not that prominent on the weirdo scale on here - it's dominated by EV owners and Peloton riders.

    Chocolate...Hot Chocolate

    Just received a batch of Soma Old Dark Milk from my mate in Canada. Lovely chocolate. Anyway, won't go into too much detail, gents - but they are pretty prominent in the public eye. When buying this chocolate for expo, other keen eyed customers noticed and started buying it as well. To the point...

    Electric cars Depreciation

    Yes, of course - you know your own circumstances, but you've also got to accept that other people also know their own circumstances. They also have their own experiences. With regards to selling your Taycan privately - good luck with that. It will be interesting to see how you get on. But...

    Electric cars Depreciation

    With regards to Toyota, they've always made different types of vehicles for specific markets. You'd have to imagine it would be really easy for them to introduce various EV models. So they must have good reasons for not doing so. They've let the likes of General Motors and Hyundai play their...
