The Office for Budget Responsibility have forecast an increase in fuel duty receipts from 2019-2020, through to 2022-2023. Did any of them look out of the window during 2020 an see the empty roads?

Not an urban myth, there was some odd UK law at least up into the 60s, where a 16 year old could drive a 3 wheeler, but only if it didn't have reverse. Quite why anyone thought reverse was such a huge danger between the ages of 16 and 17 I have no idea!
I remember my farther telling me of one of his friends who re-enabled reverse but had a bolt he could drop through a hole and lock out reverse should he ever be stopped by the Police.
WWI veteran, when asked to what he attributed his long life, he replied, "Cigarettes, whisky, and wild, wild women" 6 June 1896 - 18 July 2009 (113y 42d) R.I.P.
The general trouble with the medical profession, they think bodies should be perfect when they're lowered into the ground/burnt. I'm with Hunter S. Thompson: “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
that's me, rather than Mr. Allingham BTW ------------->
Was it a 60% margin to join, you know when the British public were lied to and told it was only a trading block?
Edited to add: BTW 45RPM you do sound rather condescending in your last sentence old boy. Sort of the way labour treated their voters calling them thick racists if they voted for Brexit, that worked out well
'cos you're a miserable curmudgeon! You do realise that almost anyone that knew that command is an old fart like me, and it took them back to the early days of home computing. That's what got most of us here [both el reg, and in IT as a profession]. And it made me smile, and think of simpler, happier times.
Anonymous South African Coward have a beer on me, I went from a ZX81 to a C64, but plenty of friends had Speccies. There was also a weird POKE command on a 32k BBC B that would make it 16k and it'd persist across reboots. It needed another POKE to fix it, thankfully the Comp Sci Master saw the funny side in the end.
No, if the article is to be believed, it's a large scale fraud by Bay Area Compliance Laboratories! Quote "... and paperwork said the work was done in San Francisco." when the testing was done in China.
Did Cisco, Huawei, et al have any idea what was going on?
Last month I did install Ubuntu Touch to an old N4 I had in the draw, which is fair as a phone OS, but does open up many more possibilities to use it's computing power for something useful. I might try to get pi hole set up on the it and give the gift of ad free browsing to a friend.
And Citroen, fuel injectors are coded to the ECU, the exact same engine in a Peugeot they are not.
On the C5 X7 you can't even check the oil level for the suspension without connecting to the ECU and depressurising the system.
Thankfully knock off Chinese OBD-II interfaces and software are available.
Did this with one or more releases of MIUI on their droid phones! "...for your protection, as many apps have access to the clipboard" Yeah, like Keepass, Lastpass and 1Password, morons!
And of course, having used all of the above, meant typing in something like MV64BPb*bBFPpQgT0G7%$Gi7Lvw9wMW$JcP% anytime I wanted to login anywhere
