We already make different versions for different markets. We even make LHD cars for the EU and RHD for the UK, and LHD cars for the US that meet US standards.

I didn't the say EU has a regulation demanding CE marking for appliances for the US. What I said was that we have to follow EU regulations whether we export or not. A few months back I tried to buy a...

I didn't say everything would be the same. The advantage of leaving the EU is that we don't need to follow EU regulations for things that aren't going to the EU, and we will be able to cut or abolish...

They'll sell much less because we will be buying the cheaper imports instead, so in this scenario they would shut refineries to bring supply back down in line with demand. A glut, not a shortage.

So we will have an oversupply of petrol due to exports being uncompetitive and imports being cheaper, and this will lead to a shortage of petrol?

He's suggesting leaving the EU then setting up a trade deal from the outside. Perfectly reasonable. It's clear that when he says 'carry on everything as it was for the next 2 years' he's talking...

WW2 pilot training

There is a suggestion on Quora that during WW2 some pilots were sent up in Spitfires with only 12 hours flying time. I'm sure the minimum was nearer 300, possibly 12 hours is the amount of Spitfire...

The rule is that a vehicle is exempt from red lights (and speed limits) if it's used for a police purpose and it's necessary for that purpose to disregard them. Blue lights etc are irrelevant.

23 an hour sounds remarkably cheap for 1980, but in any case prices generally rise more slowly than wages. Going by the RPI 23 in 1980 is equivalent to about 100 now. Compared with average...

I think in that case the whole pack will come crashing down in any case. How many student pilots would continue if rates increased by 100%? Or even 25%?

Strictly speaking it's the premise that's preposterous. Once you've got past that the plot isn't too bad, certainly better than Top Gun IMHO.
