Re: "we do not send items to landfill in the UK"
"We send them to landfills in China."
However once they get to China they are carefully unpacked , dusted off and then sent back to the UK to be put up for sale on sites such as Amazon & Ebay.

on a technicality by 1970 the yard was officially linked to the metre so although feet may have been in more common place usage......................
The international yard and pound are two units of measurement that were the subject of an agreement among representatives of six nations signed on 1 July 1959, namely the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Union of South Africa. The agreement defined the yard as exactly 0.9144 meters and the pound as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms.
Virgin.net was supported as part of the cabletel operation out of Cleppa Park in Newport (along with Which & Tesco).
The Swansea office was acquired from Cable and Wireless (along with Wythenshaw) by ntl (as cabletel became) as part of some acquisitions which was then followed by the closure of Cleppa Park, all of which was prior to the ntl/telewest merger and the subsequent rebranding to Virgin Media
Haven't listened to the full program but based on the write up it appears to be talking about Human DNA testing and in fact at around 1m 30 Brian COx sets the scene as "today we're looking at Race as it applies to Human DNA"
This article is about Canine DNA .
I don't have a specific article /program by someone of Brians popularity /experience to support the accuracy of DOG DNA testing when it comes to breed determination but the general opinion seems to be that "Dog DNA tests tend to be fairly accurate, although the quality of accuracy can vary depending on the tools used to asses dog genealogy and the sophistication of the laboratory used."
Ie it depends on how good a sample the owner takes, how large a database of different dog DNA samples held is, etc etc.
In WInstons case I thought that we was some sort of Irish Wolfhound cross but looking at him again the results that came back make sense
Oddly enough I've just recently had the DNA test results back for Winston (my rescue dog of unknown origin who joined me last year) COst me £ 35 and took about a month to get the results.
On the one side of his family he's German Wirehaired Pointer, Schnauzer & Greyhound
The other side is Poodle,Whippet & Cocker Spaniel
Nah it seems in a much healthier position. Unless they realy are going all out to defraud people then based on their latest updates the first production units are currently being assembled and should be rolling out shortly
"IMO there are really only two ISP's in this country, BT and Virgin Media"
An Internet Service Provider by definition is a company which provides Internet Service, they don't have to also supply the infrastructure.
Openreach, Virgin Media & Kcom (in the Hull area) are probably the big 3 infrastructure providers to the residential market.
Even before LLU (2003/4 ?) there were many fine ISPs such as Demon & BullDog providing service over BTs wires.
From TalkTaks Status Page
"We're aware that some customers are experiencing issues with their Homesafe settings.
We are currently investigating this issue and would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time."
Looking at one of the threads looks like the wrong settings are being randomly applied to peoples lines, dynamic IP addressing issue anybody?
@Martin an gof
That's probably because the phone coop (other ISPs who resell TalkTalk services are available, Andrews & Arnold for example) will be dealing with the TalkTalk Business (ie the old Opal & Tiscali Business part of TalkTalk) side of the business rather than TalkTalk Residential.
