Re: Electric vehicles, are they safe????

I have noticed that this particular problem has not been covered by media etc. I wonder why that is. Maybe manufacturers of electric vehicles don't want to put people off the purchase of such items. Maybe they know more than they are saying ? Until these vehicles are made safe from potential electro...

Re: The second Test

Could it be because of the availability of alcoholic drink ? I would think that has a great deal to do with such hooligan behaviour. I can remember a Test Match I attended with a friend of mine from school. It was at Trent Bridge, Nottingham and was against the West Indies (about the time Sobers got...

Re: Electric vehicles, are they safe????

Well I suppose I asked for that Mr. Spot ! Yes it was a full answer, but I feel it did not actually answer my question in the end.

Hiya all. Hope everybody is OK. I wonder what Pootin has in mind for those nuclear missiles he is housing in another country ?
