Re: Not just O2
If O2 is down 999 and 112 calls will go to another network, try it, take your sim out and screen lock your phone and the dial the emergency services.

When was this roof built? Did it require this design requirement when it was built? ( The roof on my house has been there since it was built in the 1840's, when I bought the house 20 years ago the surveyor said it was liable to fail at any minute and should be replaced as soon as possible, still the same roof I just have not got around to it. Can I sue the mortgage company for mis selling the mortgage against a dogy roof?)
The reason you have to tax the car when you buy it is to ensure that it is insured and has met the requirements for the MOT. They won't give you new tax until it passes those two tests. Under the old system you could happily drive around with no insurance or MOT. The ANPR camera would have to check three things, now they only have to check for tax. QFS if you think about it.
The Xmas workers are on full time (40 hrs per week) with compulsory overtime paid at flat rate. I spent one season working in the Swansea Warehouse, and boy they do make you sweat, the first week there it was approx -4 degrees outside yet everyone wears shorts because it is red hot inside. There is a single 30 min break for lunch in each 8 hour shift, nothing unusual in that except it takes ten minutes to get through the airport style metal detectors to the break area and another 5 to return to the work place. If you have ever seen the 1920's film metropolis where the workers are toiling relentlessly you will understand what Amazon is like.
Walking around all day with a scanner that tells you where to go and what to pick up- if the for any reason the orders stop coming in the device tells you to report to the team leader in order to be sent home. Generally the orders pick up again before you get dismissed and you can get on your merry way. All in all an evil place to work.

I very much doubt that any "Choppers" would be using AVGAS, very probably
using AVTUR or JetA1. This mistake is pretty much akin to putting petrol in a diesel car. Not a good idea.
Although I must add AVTUR works fine in a diesel engine especially if it is very cold.
