    We have just bought a new Toyota Yaris Cross and two things have happened since delivery. First we spent a few days in the Scottish Borders where the roads are narrow, twisty with plenty of humps. I lost count of the number of drivers who weren't happy with speed restrictions and over took us and then cut in before being hit by an oncoming car. Second someone has nicked the front bumper with a T...

    I'm doubtful any state players are making the calculation that "it's good for our economy".

    Companies and individuals? yes, some no doubt are coining it and don't mind it lasting. And it is a great testing ground for new weapons and strategy.

    But the wider and lasting ramifications of mass warfare will wipe out economic gains. Just the current refugee/migrant numbers are causing ...

    There is also the 'post conflict benefits' as someone has to be paid to rebuild what has been destroyed in Ukraine. There will be many US and probably Chinese contractors eyeing up multi billion dollar reconstruction deals.
    No doubt part of the US aid will include clauses saying the US has first dibs at reconstruction contracts.

    Guy, your comment about the west not minding the war carrying on is a point I have made in the past. Governments dont mind it as it brings in loads of revenue and keeps people in jobs. There are many winners from wars and it's not just defence companies. Raw material suppliers and transport companies etc all bringing revenue into the country and the workers and companies paying tax into the govern...

    Although not a direct comparison Russia does have recent history of pulling out when it cant win. It happened in Afghanistan a few years ago and it didnt appear to harm them much then.

    However to pull out or be defeated this time would no doubt further weaken them in the worlds eyes and strengthen Chinas position as the main enemy.

    If Putin wins, it looks like direct Nato confrontation. Poland is already considering knocking out Russia's missiles themselves, from within Poland, but as they enter Ukraine' air space. Russia is already warning against it.

    If Putin wins, he'll be emboldened to continue with his stated aims. Namely, the reinstatement of the Russian Empire as was.

    If he loses, on current evidence...

    I have nothing to offer on the age of your springs, Stuart, and the level of your clean-up is amazing! But I'm a bit concerned that from the distortion evident in the spring bottom mounting plate below the leaves, your U-bolts may have been seriously overtightened (and therefore weakened) at some point? Unless they've been replaced with new ones of course...

  • GuyW25 May 2024

    I know Ukraine has been in a bit of a setback lately, hopefully that is temporary and the west will wake up and act more strongly. Cynically one might suppose there is economic advantage to some parts of the 'west' in the war in Ukraine just ticking along for a good while longer. Almost all of the financial aid that the USA have been dragging their feet over actually goes directly back to the coun...

    Yep, I've been watching China's animations too.

    "-- if china are allowed to keep doing this and make it seem like normal--here they come practicing again-- all of a sudden they can catch Taiwan unawares and DO IT-- "

    I agree with you Willy. I don't think they can make their intentions clearer, short of actually starting to bomb Taiwan. There isn't much to prevent it, and the bes...
