radio programmers don’t believe that our local acts are legendary enough to have retro hits
Do the easy listening /hits type stations have people who actually look up the charts for twenty years ago and playlist stuff accordingly?
I do not think the president will serve out his term
Impeachment by a simple majority (possible, maybe likely if the Democrats have a House majority after the mid-terms) but then conviction by a 2/3 majority in the Senate. Highly unlikely.
There is of course resignation or removal for incapacity. Or prosecution in a regular court like the little people. Which may or may not be possible (and such litigation would certainly take beyond 2020).
Most of Wellington has overhead lines and they don't blow over in storms?
Maybe they could add something like this:
The question whether any official information is to be made available, where that question arises under this Act, shall be determined, except where this Act otherwise expressly requires, in accordance with the purposes of this Act and the principle that the information shall be made available unless there is good reason for withholding it.
I think this is Moroders greatest work:
I went to an unpublicised event in the bush some km from the nearest city.
No bars, BYO, a couple of thousand happy people, no aggro, no apparent cops, great music (depending on ones taste, obviously).
I nearly ran up the arse of that car that's now part of that tangle of broken bodies and scrap metal. Twice actually. When the driver simply stopped in the middle of the road. Both times on blind corners.
Illustrating another common (and dangerous misconception) that many NZers have:
FYI, the road code sez:
You can drive at any speed under or equal to the limit, provided:
- you can stop suddenly behind a vehicle that you’re following – if a vehicle ahead of you stops suddenly and you run into the back of it, you will be legally responsible
- you can stop in the length of clear lane you can see in front of you on a road with a centre line or lanes.
If you're coming up to a blind corner, you have to slow down such that if there did happen to be a car parked in the middle of the road admiring the view, or whose engine suddenly seized, or who braked to a stop coz the proverbial child/dog/deer ran out in front of them. That's the rules, and it's pretty much the same everywhere in the world.
I love how you're attributing such a level of analytical thought to the UK electors, who've mostly been through an education system that equips them to ask and answer deep questions such as "would you like fries with that".
My belief is that it will be similar (if obviously different in nature) to the 73/74 coal dispute. That ended with a Labour government being elected with a mandate to settle - not because the electorate particularly favoured Labour or the miners cause, but due to a desire to restore normalcy.
The EU is a huge chunk of the world economy. It's an even bigger chunk of the bit (e.g. not Trump's US) that care about the WTO. If the WTO rules trouble them, then in realpolitik terms, they get to change the rules.
And the EU has, as a minimum, agreements of some sort on mutual recognition of standards, through shipping of freight and the like with most non-EU states (including all its neighbours). But not the UK.
