Actually no one who voted leave has the faintest idea what they voted for, especially as everything the Leave Campaign said was a tissue of lies...

More metadata that says nothing.

We know that head injuries are rare, most fatalities are crushes to the body so a helmet is no use in this instance.

Head injuries for cyclists are rare and if cyclists are to wear helmets so should pedestrians and car drivers who are far more likely to have a head injury...

Too true, no government wants to accept that the privately owned and operated motor car is a dead end and we need to move away from mass car ownership to more walking/cycling and public transport. With some occasional electric car use on a rental "as required" basis only.

Sounds like a damn good idea. Pretty much the exact opposite of the approach in the UK, which incentivises new purchases!

Very much a good idea. Could also incentivise automatic fully inclusive warranties. So manufacturers try to make things that last.

I don't specifically care if it's illegal or not, I do care that it's flipping dangerous and it kills people. There is good evidence that it's more dangerous than drink driving and so far the government isn't taking it seriously. Hands free doesn't help either, it's highly distracting and people shouldn't be doing it!

Showing their true blue colours now... Just a bunch of Flat-Earth Tories that originally couldn't get their own way. Now they have lied and cheated to get their way they are running home to the Tory party...

We need to ban the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in animal foods, as commonly used outside of the EU. Even within the EU many farmers claim their animals are sick so they can dose them up.

The economy has been on life support since the financial crash of 2007, and it wasn't really on a sound footing before that, but now we have the Brexit fiasco things can only go downhill from here...

We've too much debt and too little real economic output, until that is rebalanced we're going no where. and it won't be a pleasant process...

Not really surprising that things are worse than consumers had led to believe. Things are better than they use to be but clearly not as clean as they need to be.

The internal combustion engine - diesel and petrol - are not compatible with urban living and will have to be phased out entirely sooner rather than later. That's not going to be politically easy to do, but it will have to be done...!

A very dangerous job for a copper... But probably a very good idea that someone is doing it.

Not really surprising, if you have lots of high sulfur fuel, you can sell in the west then you sell it where you can - and damn the consequences.
