The Libyan situation is very murky indeed.

As far as I can see - there are highly conflicting accounts of where Libya's money actually is and the country is still in some considerable disarray. There is a clear reticence in the MSM to even mention the place - we have to rely on East Enders ex actors for some info.... and the very bizarre David Shaylor has popped up again....

Given the present brouhaha surrounding events in Manchester - I wonder why John Stalker - a widely acknowledged local expert on terrorism wasn't invited onto the recent BBC Question Time....(he's still available)

I reckon there are quite a lot of people hoping that the whole mess doesn't really spill out into the open.

thanks for regaling us with the Times stuff - confirms my mostly negative perception from the occasional browse at supermarket newspaper stands. I'm considering a temporary subscription ($8USD) for a look at Ezra Levant's RebelMedia or maybe supporting Tim Pool's intrepid reportage.

The Times advertorial stuff and lightweight fluff is just rubbish.

And even the randy cows can't make up for those horrible windmills.

Times : Science of supercharging Fruit Veg with UV pulse.
Just as they lose nutrition if harvested too early , they reckon you can bombard stuff with UV pulse before you pick it to get the nutrition to optimum levels .
apparently Tescos does this with chestnut..

I'm shocked by the way the Times mixes proper news with comment which seems t be ADVERTS for businesses and causes
The third thing on the editorial page is a sudden love of driverless cars

tomo, it is significant that Egypt has bombed Libyan ISIS camps, in retaliation for an ISIS massacre of Egyptian Coptics (Christians) in Egypt.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-40067473

I do not know whether there has been any condemnation of Egypt, by Egyptian Moslems, or other Moslem countries. Egypt does feel threatened by Moslem extremists forces, and Egypt is not the only Moslem Government that is worried.

Libya has oil, and a ready supply of money. Egypt does not.

Katy Hopkins is the least of it.

There are v.shady goings on especially related to murky MI6 doings in Libya which it looks like the Labour party plonkers have got whiff of - the Qataris appetite for exceeding profligate tinkering seems to figure prominently.

I suspect that there is something of a panic going on as Mrs May could be implicated - even if only by association rather than by direct deeds - that'd be pretty inconvenient and then.... one must factor in that a certain Mr. Blair has spent time in Libya....

I suspect we will be seeing much distraction in the run up to the GE and posturing / manipulation by the establishment and media to damp down any vocal critics of the way things are being handled. Global Radio - LBC's owners have had some coverage issues with politically "hot" stories...

I think this Guardian article redefines "Losers".

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/may/26/solar-power-breaks-uk-records-thanks-sunny-weather

The Guardian fail to point out that in summer, daylight hours are always longer, not just "more sunny"

"Canting Keels" became popular on racing yachts in the late 1990s. Very expensive, and somewhat inconvenient in the event of a technical failure.

The "Planing Hull" was introduced to sailing dinghies by a genius Englishman, Uffa Fox

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uffa_Fox

He evolved his original concept from 1925-1928. Racing yachts with planing hulls are expensive and rare. To get them onto the plane with minimal force they are as light as possible, and have no comforts below deck! Do not expect a fridge, or any chilled beers.

The "Open 60" style yachts designed for singlehanded Round The World/Vendee Globe races are 60ft long, and rely on "Bucket and Chuck it" instead of a WC.
