    A Trip Up North

    The M6 is really crap until you pass Preston , always heavily congested and currently has 50 mph for long long sections if I was doing a bit of a trip I think I would take an alternative route if time wasn’t a factor .. You could take in many villages and some stunning scenery.. in real terms may may add a couple of hours to your full journey, if that. Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Northumberland and the lakes have so much to see. Blackpool is a thing in itself, I have been many times on stag do’s and days out. I guess if you have never been it would be worth a drive through , although it’s usually scruffy and full of chip papers, beer cans and drunken Scottish people laying in the gutters

    Question Time £5.19 for a pint

    My local was 77p for mild,88p for bitter and 99p for lager when i started enjoying a beer. Bierre Morretti is £4.30 and Amstel is £4.15 in my local now.. Pint of guest ale around £3,which isnt bad but has never got any kind of strength to it,you would get the bends before getting drunk on the stuff.

    Anyone see a trend here?

    The car industry and government led targets have screwed the industry Diesel has been pushed for years with incentives for the normal person to own, but hopping from euro 4,5 and 6 spec costs the manufacturer billions, and with the tech moving so fast diesels have become very unreliable ..they have become the headache nobody wants. Some manufacturers pulled out of making Diesel engines cars before brexit was thought of . Diesel now being the devils work, government and now pushing toward electric and hybrids.. There are many pros and cons, but for the manufacturers it’s an upheaval like never before in the trade and apart from the Asia. Manufacturers they have all got twitchy... Along with a huge problem the industry is having finding people to repair the cars once they are made .. For many years dealers and Indy’s have paid rubbish wages for a difficult job that takes years of training and costs thousands to tool up for , consequently nobody wants to do it.. This has led to a serious lack of techs ...every dealer and a lot of Indy’s are advertising constantly..I know of over a dozen locally that will take techs on but can’t find them.. It’s a perfect storm, and many in the industry, many will use brexit as a scapegoat as their collective knees knock at the next 5 years in the trade
