Hinckley Point is 106 miles from Bude. OK,


Lucky you. Google puts you closer: The distance between Bude and Hinkley Point C nuclear power Station is 67 miles. The road distance is 103.3 miles.

Neither of which gives as much as 106 miles. From Here

It is suggested by some geologists that the chevrons in Madagascar were created by a 300 feet high tsunami. The 1958 Lituya Bay earthquake created a rockslide. The sudden displacement of water resulted in a megatsunami that washed out trees to a maximum elevation of 1,720 feet.
Shit happens!

Hinckley Point is 106 miles from Bude. OK, not as the crow flies, but there a damn great big wodge of Somerset sticking out into the sea twixt there and here. Round here we're a damn sight more worried about the listening station at CSOS Morwenstow (GCHQ's ear on the world) which is only five miles away and reputedly the fourth biggest terrorist target in the country (dunno what the first three are). I have a good few mates working up there and I reckon they're watching the bloody test matches in ultra-HD most of the time.

Oi, I'm half a mile inland as the crow flies. The geology around here is safe (upper Carboniferous massive turbidite sandstones interbedded with thinner shales). A bit folded (well a lot folded, frankly, thanks to the Variscan orogeny, but I'm too far from the coast to worry about slumps). I can't flood either. Who's a clever boy then! :-)

We have a dreadful party-line-toeing Tory MP - astonishing for a small town with inner-city problems, big drug-problem with the attendant crime issues, high unemployment, no buses worth talking about, acute shortage of doctors (4 weeks wait to see a doctor), etc. But this has been a ‘safe’ Tory seat for the past hundred years.

So I voted for the party that almost always comes closest to unseating the Tory. Probably a vain hope, but who knows...?

I couldn't vote for Grieve. Whatever his stance on Brexit, he's a Tory, and the Tories are the party of self-interest and the rich. If I can't actually help to get a Labour candidate elected, which I can't here, I'll do the next best thing and help to keep the Tories out. Yes I know that's tribal and that he's not a Tory any more, but he's a Tory through and through and he's said the usual terrible tabloid things about Corbyn.

It would be interesting to knowhow many of us would vote for our side, whoever they had put up.

I think I covered that earlier, so far is it relates to me. I try to vote for people who I judge to work best for their community which is why in the past I have voted for people who are not 'of my tribe.' But in this case the matter is so important I don't feel I can do that.

So what tribe are you referring to? Labour/Tory or Leave/Remain? In the second case I cannot imagine a Leaver they could suggest I would want to vote for, because I see Leave itself being so harmful. So if Labour put an adamant Leaver up in my ward against a Dominic Grieve, there would be no question: I would vote for Grieve.

It feels sort of tribal. i don't see any opinions being changed.

Apparently a lot of tory voters are going to vote Lib Dem in the south, because of Brexit.

And a lot of Labour voters just aren't going to vote in the North because of Corbyn.

Its hard deserting your tribe. tory voters can't bring themselves to vote Labour and Labour voters can't bring themselves to vote Boris/Tory.

I wonder if Bozzer is going to pay for the 40 imaginary hospitals with the £350 million pounds a week he promised to save? I guess we will never know as he has not got the guts to stand up to the kind of questioning that the BBC reserve for Labour politicians. Why anyone would vote for a man with no integrity, no courage and no redeeming features is beyond me. I suppose he is the pinnacle of their aspirations.

Oh Dear! Back to the Ad hominem attacks again.

Andrew Marr asked the Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell: “You were here a little over a month ago and you were saying your manifesto, unlike many of the others, would be fully-costed. Sadly, that is not true. Is it?

“You announced that you were going to give £58billion to WASPI women. Where is that money coming from?”

More of labour in the dreamtime....... with the result of putting the economy in a nightmare.
There is a weary sense of déjà vu here. One thing Labour can always be relied on for is the destruction of the economy.
A bit of a sorry legacy! I assume anyone that votes labour has undergone a frontal lobotomy, or have totally lost the power of reason.

Are bullies anything like Bullingdon boys Bonzo? You know, the ones who burn tenners in front of homeless people or stick their dicks in pigs mouths? Or are they more like the ones who force disabled people to work at inappropriate jobs or starve to death? Or maybe the uncaring, unfeeling government that turns a blind eye to food banks and rampant poverty?

I'll take my chance with the "lefties" who care more about poor people than the rich and powerful anyday. If taking money off the best paid to give to the poorest is being a "lefty bully", then count me in!

I was recently discussing one of the many Johnson promises, and the failings of the media to challenge him. There is a lot of amusement in the press that this 50,000 more nurses includes 18,000 who are already employed. That is a fair point. But no-one raises the fact that currently there are 43,000 unfilled nursing positions. So his grand plan, if it completely fulfils its objectives, aims to leave us still some 11,000 nurses short.

And that is without building a single new hospital, which will presumably require some nurses.

If the polls are correct within a week we will have a brave new world and the lefties can all crawl back under their stones.

But if I call Compo a racist and anti-semite I can provide reams of evidence.
The final report from the Equality and Human Rights Commission should provide a stunning indictment of magic grandad and his party.
