Another car drives into a crowd in Germany. That's one every other week, isn't it.

 

Was it a Merc?

 

Bloody ridiculous 😉 One of them are you 😆

 

I like your questioning.

 

Feb 2020 - Local media report that a silver Mercedes drove through plastic barricades set up for the parade and into a group of people.

 

Seems like it was a Renault Cleo today. Couldn't miss the huge Kylie Skin advert in the image. There's always an advert? In news clips; a passing van, a carrier bag ...

This thing with Merc recalling a million cars due to some braking fault. Cars as far back as 2004?

 

Anyone else think there is some other ulterior motive for wanting so many old cars back to be "checked"?

 

(I don't have a Merc so no personal interest in it, just wondering about the agenda).

Well they want to push people to buy electric car...

They could upgrade the software on the car's ecu to increase fuel consumption so the owners would get fed up. Or code some weird electrical glitches in to be triggered 6 or 7 months down the line. Who knows?

and the car industry is so corrupt I wouldn't put it past them to do something like this.

Two British men captured when serving in the Ukrainian armed forces, have been sentenced to death by a Russian military tribunal. According to the Guardian, the men claim they were serving as regular Ukrainian marines and thus entitled to protection as POWs. Not so, say the Russian, who treated them as mercenaries. Does Ukraine have a legit foreign legion like France or did these guys go there following the media hype to help Ukraine? I don't know the answer to that but if they are mercenaries, they're lucky they actually got a trial.

Will this be used as a trigger for the UK to get seriously involved in the "conflict"?

I doubt it. If they were mercenaries, then the Russians are acting within the law. If they are Ukrainians, as they claim, the it's their problem.

Can someone please do the math's on this ?😂

 

Smoking in pub gardens could become ILLEGAL, sales in supermarkets BANNED and films that show actors lighting up slapped with an 18 rating under Sajid Javid-backed report

The age limit for purchasing cigarettes in England should rise by 12 months every year until no one can buy tobacco products, a Government review has set out.

After the indoor smoking ban in 2007 I took an interest in the anti smoking campaigns in the past and looked briefly into Hitler / Germany, the UK before that, China before that.

 

It starts with the same questions, Why? And I wonder if..?

 

It's another bloody hornets nest 😆 

 

Definitely worth a look, adds some perspective.

On BBC news, have a look at the 17th century ship wreck discovery. Wonderful interview with the two brothers who discovered it in 2007 !

 

It's been kept a secret for 15 years!

 

This is typical. You tell people things and they say oh no it could never be kept a secret, someone would blab.

 

No one blabbed! Because this was a security issue and they didn't want anyone stealing from the shipwreck site. The brothers family didn't spill the beans. I'm sidetracked 😆 

 

A university representative said this was a crucial insight into 17th century history and mentioned what happened in that era to the monarcy, the strength of parliament and our constitution. 

 

I enjoyed the retelling of the discovery, the smiles and the excitement. A nicely mixed bag here, for me anyway 😆

I heard about this yesterday but they were saying it's just up for debate and not actually approved (yet).

I was so excited today to see an article in the DM reporting that people in San Francisco & LA have voted to oust their recently-elected woke mayor & DA respectively. The article also interestingly reports that their election campaigns were funded by, who else, George Soros! Are people there finally starting to wake up? It's certainly a good sign.
