Prentis is a strange choice for fisheries minister given Banbury's proximity to the sea. Maybe she's a fresh water girl.
And our very own Robert Courts was appointed Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Department for Transport, with responsibility for aviation and maritime.

T**T!

They're happier fish now as there is no point in catching them, with struggling to export them to the main market.

Just here to watch the angst over an 11 second video clip with the context of a roof tile in a tornado.

Play the ball, not the man. :)

Different perspective, unconscious bias call it what you like. :)

JRM is most definitely Marmite.
I think you've got a bit of a mancrush on the honourable member for the 18th century:love::sick:

Is it his plummy accent or air of effortless arrogance that you find so appealing :unsure:

For someone who takes such pride in where you've got to from "nothing", it is a very bizarre level of defference and cap doffing when it comes to ol Moggy!

Ford has substantially increased the prices of two of its most popular models for 2021, claiming that the rise is due to additional tariffs on components built outside the UK and EU.

According to UK price lists from December and January, the price of a Fiesta ST in ST-2 trim rose by £1455 at the start of this month. ST-3 and ST Edition models also went up by £1695, meaning the range now tops out at £28,770.

Also more expensive to buy this year is the recently launched Puma ST. That was available to order from September last year priced from £28,495, but this month that base price has increased to £30,415 with no equipment upgrades.



Speaking to Autocar, a Ford UK spokesman confirmed the rise was “all to do with Brexit pricing” because some of the engine components used in the production of both models are sourced from the US.

Those components push the two models over the allowable limit on what proportion of goods can be assembled from parts made outside of the UK and EU for tariff-free access. Known as ‘rules of origin’, it could mean a number of other UK models assembled in the EU from components made elsewhere become significantly more expensive.

Further clarification on this and many other areas of the newly ratified EU-UK trading agreement is needed, reckon industry leaders. Mike Hawes, CEO of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, says his team “await the details to ensure this deal works for all automotive good and technologies, including specifics on rules of origin and future regulatory co-operation”.
