Please can we draw a line under this argument. It is well off the OP's topic. Thanks. Also the whole thread is much more suited to a ULVR board rather than HYP! - Chris

Re: Business Reality verses Project Fear

I do wonder if all this debate will suddenly stop after we leave the EU - if we do indeed leave the EU. Instead of both sides making opposite predictions about the future I think maybe they will continue by making opposite predictions about what would have been had we not left. I predict a bright fu...

Re: In praise of the HYPochondriac Board

Criticism is banished to the "other board" which means that the system lacks the crucial ingredient that drives change and progress - informed critical examination. Really? Banished to another board is not the same as the debate being suppressed*. Regards, Chris * Having said that I have ...

Re: Unilever - SIMPLIFICATION OF UNILEVER'S CORPORATE STRUCTURE

Discussion of the guidelines of this board should take place on the Biscuit Bar not here. In the specific case of Unilever the subject has already been done to death there and, after a lengthy debate, one of this site's owners locked the topic and asked for a line to be drawn under the subject....

Re: Gove: Chequers could be changed after brexit

As you possibly know I'm a "Leaver" (as is/was Mr Gove). I suspect his speculation is a ploy to win over people like me to the Chequers agreement. I think he is a clever guy but I'm put off by his fingerprints still being on the dagger.

Re: Unilever - SIMPLIFICATION OF UNILEVER'S CORPORATE STRUCTURE

Guys can we bring this spat regarding calculations with and without capital appreciation to an end. It is all getting far too personal. You are all doubtless fully understanding of any maths involved. It is a disagreement, let's just leave it at that. The subject, going forward, is Unilever. Th...

Re: The Lemonfool my pic of the day thread

Thank you - I'd had quite a bit of practice by the time they came over, pointing the camera at the exact right gap in the trees. It was nice to take on my new phone too For various reasons I keep finding myself taking photos of aeroplanes flying past. It is often a bit hit and miss but one feature ...

Re: LED Spotlight Advice

I may be wrong, but if I understand correctly, fire rated light fittings are no more or less likely to combust than non fire rated ones. The difference will be they can contain the fire for some time specified in building or other fire regulations. For example, fire rated doors are made from wood. ...

Re: LED Spotlight Advice

I have a bungalow so no bedrooms (or any rooms) above but I have fire resistant hoods in the loft over the eyeballs. Don't know whether these are still sold but it used to be common to fit them. Probably a bit of a waste of time seeing as both the bathroom and en-suite have umpteen non-fire-rated d...

Re: "Company Analysis" Board created - some re-ordering of boards

So I would suggest moving those six threads from Share Ideas to Company Analysis. I doubt anyone would disagree but it would probably assist the Mods concerned if those threads were individually reported, with the reason, which I'll do if you haven't already done so or don't have the time. I though...

Nothing to do with bedrooms. Any liveable space above requires fire rated downlights below. At least that's my understanding.

If the admission is genuine then it is against the forum rules. It is, as they say in Formula 1, "under investigation".
