I was just about to post the same thing.

Nice to know they are happy to target more than just us hoi polloi.

Money well spent.

Treasonous May wants new laws to spy on school-children, to protect us from... Exploding children! Or something.

What next? Paedo children? Children who want to have sex with other children? Rather than sex with fat MPs grown men? It must be stopped!

Holy shit, this country is fucked up!

Maybe we should all just offer ourselves up for re-education?

Re: here is an interesting fact.,,,,, @John Jennings.

You are correct in both your postings above!

I only mentioned channel 16 as that is the international hailing/distress frequency, although the Merkins, of course have their own, slightly different frequencies than the rest of the planet...

12 miles is the limit of territorial waters, and NoTaMs are also broadcast here (Dover Straits) bi-hourly.

I used to have access to channel 0, which is set aside for Coastguard/Lifeboat use, but unfortunately am no longer involved, and can only listen in... :o(

When inside territorial waters, it is common sense, and courtesy, to have your VHF turned ON, but squelched. Modern short range GMDSS/DSC sets use just milliamps when idle.

No Range safety boats?

Why not?

Down here, the local military firing range has two high speed launches patrolling the safety zone. Any vessel approaching this area gets warned away pretty sharpish.

There are also two-hourly broadcasts on Marine Channel 16 announcing aforementioned safety zone.

It's been like this for at least forty years.

This is NOT rocket science!

I use numerous Google services, including a Moto G Android phone and their (very good) email service, but only via IMAP clients, and never see an ad on either. Their spam trap catches pretty much everything, and false flags are very rare.

Almost certainly not.

Most definitely.

Despite hundreds of years of not being able to force you to supply incriminating evidence against yourself, they abolished torture, then decided, in the pre-dawn of the new millenium, and at the stroke of a pen, that it was OK to deprive you of your liberty until you give them what they want.

Re: The guy's a nightmare.

You may laugh, but in a previous life, I worked in a Coca Cola factory, and at shift change one day there was a can of Pepsi in the "Team room" fridge.

There was an internal inquiry as to how it got there, but they never found out who did it... ;o)

IMHO the only good pop is a heavily diluted tonic water. (Diluted with copious amounts of Vera Lynn, obviously!)

Re:all wheel bearings loose, the transmission howling, the second round of engine oil seals leaking,

Ever heard of a thing called a "service"?

And as for "I wouldn't worry about a turbo", is that because it's not the turbo that usually fails, it's the turbo bearings or oil seals?

Generally taking something expensive with them. (Like the rest of the turbo... Or the whole engine if you're really lucky. (Thanks Peugeot))
