    Brexit WTF, WTF

    Wayne one day you might state something factual....that will be a frightening day. The hypocrisy over the NHS is a longstanding Tory trademark. - Churchill's Tories voted against the formation of the NHS 21 times before the Act was passed, including both the 2nd and 3rd readings. Churchill compared the NHS to Nazism in 1946 shows the extremity of views at the time. - In 1946 largely conservative voting Doctors voted 10:1 against the NHS seeing it as a threat to their income. - Over the last 73 years, the Tories have every time they have been in power under-funded and or tried to sell off the NHS. Labour government’s have always stepped in to fully fund and rebuild the NHS. The worst example of underfunding in that 73 years is the current Government over the last decade. - In 2017 Tory MPs voted against a pay rise for nurses, subsequently granting only a 1% increase that was below inflation. - The second most laughable Tory NHS claim was in 2017 when Health Sec Jeremy Hunt claimed the Tories 'set up' the NHS in 1944. - The most laughable claim is in the Johnson Governments 2019 election manifesto that states it's NHS spending increase was the highest on record. It falls short of even the average annual spend over the last 65 years. - The second most dispicable Tory action was on 25 June this year when 331 Tory MPs voted against weekly testing of NHS and care staff, even though they spent many Thursdays clapping for carers. - The most dispicable Tory action was Johnson on Monday accusing care homes for the UK's high Covid-19 death toll. Downing St have confirmed no apology will be forthcoming. So Wayne you and your Tory dolphin mates giving oxygen to Johnson's lies by clapping, it would be a good day if you caught it.

    CANADA-US COVID difference

    It's lunacy below the border. I think we may need a taller hedge. Maybe roses.

    Probably the last thing anyone needs is for GD to be calling the shots over ACE (and therefore Iain M too) during race days when GD has such an obvious conflict of interest.. When will IM and his covoid-free crew be let in to start testing KiwiLine? Soon would be better.

    He’s like the floater that seems to follow you in the pool. Code brown Hawk they call him.

    Will he go quietly?

    Hell no. He's quite willing to set fire to the planet because he has a hangnail.

    She has to, she's not good enough for him.
  13. Sometimes she can look quite attractive. Top marks to the fabricators.

    Trump Screws it up Again with WHO

    I'm sure they are hanging up somewhere. Out on the lawn with a $1 tag on it.

    Yes, fresh faced boy, to a ghoul. Well, at least Ivanka likes it.
  16. badlatitude

    Will he go quietly?

    I wish I could say yes, but Trump is savvy and nuts enough to be a problem. No one should underestimate him.

    I'm not sure what he got out of the bargain, but it wasn't worth it.
  18. No heat but I finally got it free and apart. I've got a little clean up to do but nothing major. What a hassle. I've filled the bottom of the main vertical and now I'll polish up the tab and apply tuff gel before re-assembling it.

    The ethics of a COVID Vaccine

    It's a virus, it's irreverant. Religion ain't gonna save you from this one.

    Corona Virus

    Hey guys, leave the Hawk alone. He knows things like the Chinese have better hygiene than us Kiwis.

    In three months they should be setting fire to the White House.

    Steve and Dave Clarks Unidentified Foiling Object

    Well I had a great outing yesterday and finally got several minutes of worth viewing video extracted from 2 hours of raw footage. Newbie out in the ocean All of the footage was me giving the ocean a try. Wind was forecast to build as the day went on and stronger offshore than inshore. When I got to my selected sailing spot, the wind was lacking. So I gave offshore a try. Most of the "fun sailing" was more skimming than foiling. Anything higher than a beam reach was pretty slow as the period was just wrong for getting any speed. After coming back inshore I got in a few runs with some of my "best yet" foiling stretches. Of course the camera battery was dead by then. Other good points for the day included: No injuries, scrapes or dings I did not break anything I "recovered acceptably" at the end of every brief foiling stretch and as such had a zero capsize day My re-paint job on the edge of the boat join seem to work and both hulls were dry after the outing PF rudder rake modification version 4.3 worked great for the second straight outing. I found that my boat seemed to like more rudder rake than I had previously tried. I adjusted more and more rake as the day went on and ended up at 0.55" back from full forward without noticing any problem. I was also happy with my "rake setting scale" mod that has a scribe mark on the rod and 0.1" marks going backward from full forward.

    Epstein: the Deafening Silence

    I'm sure she felt way more secure outside of custody.

    You point out all legitimate truths. The problem, is everyone is familiar with each one, and everyone including the media, is watching them with interest. His problems with ignoring the murder of U.S. troops is just getting off the ground, and trust me it will be big when it takes off. The pandemic, it's going to ruin him. Today, he even said he disagrees with Fauci on covid. Testing demand has pretty much shut down that program, even though he brags about how accessible it is. Texas hit 10,000 new infections today ,and the state fair is in full swing, how do you think that ends? The economy is not going to roar back, economists are saying maybe 2023, unemployed will be right back where they were with new shutdowns. is that dismal enough? In four months people will be camping out at polling places.
