    Covid - Plan B

    Looks like the government are all but ruling out any future lockdowns (not surprising or they would have extended furlough again) and are saying its not the time for plan B at least at the moment.

    Co2 bottle, advice please

    I'm not sure but I think the green band means its 70/30, if you want to use it you need a regulator, if you get a CO2 regulator in will not fit on a 70/30 or any mixed gas regulator so its any easy way to tell.

    Has anybody already started to have problems with CO2 supply or price hikes

    Mine went up by £1 per bottle but I think that happened 6 months ago. What do hospitals use it for?

    Is capitalism exploiting you?

    Cheers for all the replies especially those that disagree with me. I would add that avoiding tax legally or otherwise not only has nothing to do with this video but also has nothing to do with capitalism. McDonalds is an interesting structure as its mainly (possibly 100% I don't know)...

    Is capitalism exploiting you?

    In this country the NHS decides what the pay of a doctor is (at least most of the time) not the free market. I also would say that I agree the fault of a bad mechanic could cause a bigger single incident but a bad doctor would cause more death over time. Also this has nothing/little to do with...
