Re: The UKAR politics thread

My view is that any MP defecting must by default secure a by-election on his or her new ticket. And any change in PM must by default trigger a general election . Not sure about that. You would do well to get a vote of no confidence in any sitting PM if it meant there was a chance that those wanting...

Icicle Meet cancelled

Just noticed that Icicle Meet Refrozen this coming weekend has been cancelled. A big stamp on the site's home page but no explanation, presumably covid. A great shame I was looking forward to getting out.

If anyone can provide a picture of the Mk 6 then I'd be happy to add it to the website - otherwise it remains a 'mythical' radio!
You could ask for anybody who has c1965 Air Pictorials. They were advertised in just about every edition.

Re: Vintage Airband Radios

The Shorrock mark 6 was beautiful and what I would have wanted more than anything in the world. Unfortunately for a 12 year old schoolboy the £36 needed to buy one was a kings ransom. Two of my friends had one and one was still using his held together by tape forty years on.

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

The thing is without context, saying someone dying “with” Omicron means nothing in the general scheme of things. It could be that Omicron/Covid was not a contributing factor to the death. It could be that it was a factor but the person was very old or had other health conditions that made them vuln...

Was there any point/merit to Starmer’s speech this evening?

Sounds to me just as pointless as Johnson’s last night, tbh.

So it looks like many people here 'quite' like Starmer because he isn't Corbyn, May, etc. Quite a few here credit him with being a very clever dark horse. But explain to me why he can't just whip Labour to vote against Boris's rather draconian measures next week and win a huge majority supported by ...

Re: The UKAR politics thread

I have been politically confused for some time now but my uncertainty has reached a new peak with the realisation that the leader of the opposition is the Prime Ministers biggest supporter. I see in one of Tommy's posts above he seems to suggest that Sir Keir is a bit more canny than I give him cred...
