    You may have heard some claptrap about new EU speed limiters. Well it's not true.

    It's just adaptive cruise control connected with GPS that can be switched off.

    More important other bits are emergency braking, lane keep assist and fatigue monitoring by 2021.

    Automatic emergency braking will be life safer against old ladies T-boning your bike prince Phil style

    Do you like the idea computer to help you staying alive?

    Yeahbut the papers sed the EU wanted to ban all the funny shaped bananas and immigrants are going to affect our house prices.

    It must be true cos I read it in the Daily Mail.

    Not the wrong shape, but the does EU ban the wrong size bananas.

    And do you think supply and demand doesn't apply to housing?

    There was me thinking the EU wanted to classify bananas, not ban em. Got a credible link?

    And yeah, supply and demand is the main factor in house prices, but also the Mail does seem to use the threat of houseprices rising so Brits cant afford them or dropping so pensioners lose out to scare people about immigrants.
    It's fairly blatant so I'm guessing you might have spotted it.

    Lets not forget them being scandalised about pretty much everything but look on the website sidebar and oh there it is, look at what blah de blah wore to a media event, nice arse now she's legal.

    If it looks like I dislike The Mail, thats just cos they are the type of cuddly wuddly beary beary boos that would have supoorted the brown shirts decades ago and have only become slightly less obvious now. Its journalistic fearmongering.

    Feeling slightly unsure about it I checked and it seems that I should have said Blackshirts, meh. Saga should be able to remember it better than me, I'm just a kid really.

    "Would have supported the blackshirts"? Actually, they did.

    Unlike you, I dislike it with a passion.

    Is Wikipedia credible?

    "The minimum size (with tolerances and exceptions) is a length of 14 cm and a thickness (grade) of 2.7 cm." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commis...C)_No._2257/94

    That would mean reading the Mail, wouldn't it?
