  • Comment on: New hydrogen-fuelled London cabs only emit water, and it’s good enough to drink

    George Canning's comment | Fri, 18 Dec 2015 6:21 pm

    The green cabs themselves may be 100% green but the electricity to charge batteries and to extract hydrogen from the atmosphere is not green. The pollution is merely moved to where the generating plant is.
    Forget the guff about windmills and solar panels' minuscule amounts that only produce when the wind blows and the sun shines.

    Loose tea sales will be plummeting because few shops sell it. You can only make proper tea in a pot with loose tea.
    Tea bags? Ugh! They are filled with tea dust for the masses.

  • Comment on: These five charts might make you rethink your views on immigration

    I fail to see where the 4 million immigrants imported by Gordon Brown figure in the supposed population Growth. Also I do not see where the costs for schooling immigrant children, and NHS services etc. are taken into account.
    The indigenous who went to their local schools now find they are unavailable for their children and they have no priority over those who arrived yesterday.

  • Comment on: 11 hilarious and mysterious urban myths about London

    I can endorse the claim that pigeons use the Tube to travel.
    When I travelled in the 70s between Baker Street and Edgware Road, I would often see pigeons travelling between the two stations. They would refuse to be shooed off and dodge around you if you tried.
    It is worth noting that Baker Street is underground whereas Edgware Road is above ground. The Tube is the only way pigeons have to access Baker Street..
