Tesla are still losing money aren't they.

The germans are brilliant arent they ?

Like the stuttgart 21 rail project - look it up 

Billions of euros over budget - a disaster , and still not finished- if this happened here there would be uproar - especially when we have succeeded with something similar , with crossrail .

I have travelled extensively in germany , and I have seen nothing massively different or better than what goes on in britain .

We were even involved in an accident on the auto bahn,  and the way the scene was handled was vastly inferior to the way an accident would be handled here .

Their vehicles are ahead of ours - but they would be .

After ww2 the germans and the japanese couldn't re arm so they turned their attention to building cars - very good ones at that .

At the same time the brits and americans took their eye off the ball , complacency reigned .

Let's just get out of the e.u , and britain can find its feet and identity once again .

In reference to Elon musk and his vehicles , the jaguar I pace is at least its equal .

When all the major car companies switch to ev , Tesla s time may well be up .

Every country in europe has something to offer , and britain has more than most.

I love europe , but have never returned to solihull wishing I could live somewhere else in europe , especially germany .

Cross rail was supposed to open last year, will not open till 2021 and will be 0.5 billion pounds , at least, overspent.

not a clue.

Where do you dredge these non articles up from Simmo?

Like most EU 'rules', it is the UK government that that didn't do what was needed.
Your 'article' even mentions it:

"While the Government has the final decision on whether to clear water channels of silt build-ups"

Something I came across yesterday: 


A fresh-faced Nick Clegg demanded “a real referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union.” The leaflet observed that:

“It’s been over thirty years since the British people last had a vote on Britain’s membership of the European Union. That’s why the Liberal Democrats want a real referendum on Europe. Only a real referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU will let the people decide our country’s future.”

2008 was also the year that Clegg infamously stormed out of the House of Commons when the then speaker, Michael Martin, refused to call a Lib Dem amendment in his name demanding an in/out EU referendum.

Following Ed Davey’s expulsion from the chamber, Clegg said:

“I share the dismay of [Ed Davey]. What guidance can [the Deputy Speaker] give me on how we can secure – if not today, at some point during the remaining stages of the Bill – the opportunity to debate the issue that many members want debated and many members of the public want debated: our future membership of the EU?”

Davey (then the Lib Dems’ foreign affairs spokesman) had struck an even more forceful tone, remarking:

“Will the Chair reconsider the decision not to select the Liberal Democrat amendment for a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU? That is the question that goes to the heart of the debate before the House. That is the debate that people want to hear. We are being gagged, Sir.”

The current Lib Dem Leader, Jo Swinson, also contributed to this debate, and her speech is fascinating when compared with the comments she made at the weekend. Swinson repeated that:

“The Liberal Democrats would like to have a referendum on the major issue of whether we are in or out of Europe.”

On an in/out EU referendum, she noted:

“We support such a referendum; we will continue to campaign for it and hope that it will find favour in this House.”

Furthermore, she described being denied a vote on Clegg’s referendum amendment as “incredibly disappointing” and something she felt “very passionately” about.

Swinson’s eurosceptic side – mysteriously neglected of late – was also on display, as she noted:

“For too long, power in the EU has been concentrated among those who are appointed, not elected. The structures of the EU have often proved cumbersome to say the least, at times even making this House look modern and streamlined by comparison.”

It's what happens in a post-truth society where no argument is even listened to by people who have made up their minds on an article of faith.  It's a cult.

From Mitsubishi Zero to Mitsubishi Magna. From Messershmitt aircraft to Messerschmitt cars (ugly though).

You might want to remember this when you trawl these Far Right websites looking for your cartoons, thinking that it's harmless and you're not a fish jumping onto somebody's hook.  Don't be part of a human bot army.

Sacha Baron Cohen is speaking to you, and warning you to be careful. A sewer of bigotry-involved conspiracy theories.  Ring any bells?

So the bloke who sang "throw the new down the well" wants more censorship.  Why do "comedians" go political?

Meanwhile a "kinder gentler politics"

Totally agree with sacha baron Cohen 

As a jewish man , he has a right to be fearful 

Especially when the internet companies are allowing Islamic extremists to post anti jewish propaganda on a daily basis , without any scrutiny .

And right on cue , the chief rabbi has spoken out about the danger of jeremy corbyns labour party to the jewish community in britain .

It's strange that the chief rabbi is singling out a far right group , but elements within the labour party 

Anti semitism is alive and well , but not just on the far right , as some on here were alluding to .

The clear and present danger is  also within the far left , and within other opposing ethnic communities .

It wont be soon - like a  lot of things .

At the risk of repeating myself - let's see who falls first the e.u or the u.k ?

A little wager perhaps .

You keep having a dig at the country of your birth , so if you have so little faith , put your money where your mouth is .
