Trident ? All that money and we didn't even get a chance to use it. :wink:

I had to look Jim Fici up :)

Trident? No clue. No-one seems to know how much it'll cost to replace -- £20bn? £80bn? £100bn? Depends how you count it. We spend about £90bn/year on education, I reckon that that could probably do with a top-up more than we need a nuclear deterrent. Which, pretty much by definition, doesn't actually do anything :)

I have sent Jimi Fici a friends request on facebook.

Am I down or what.

I see the energy minister has called the end on wind farms, so it looks like it's nuclear all the way now.

What's paradoxical is that the Germans apparently see "Made in England" as a status symbol on cycling kit. The guys at USE told me that their German distributor had asked them to make the "Made in England" more visible on the Exposure lights.

And I'm having no trouble shifting Hope stuff to Danes.

That'll be OK then. They've got a great recent safety record :shock:


I thought they bought it from the Germans...
