Hey Graham, where are the reports from people who are loving the Brexit?

What do you think about the EU decision to require usb-c ports on cellphones.

The Brexit lovers all seem to have vanished. How strange...

USB C has got nothing to do with Brexit. It's probably a good idea though, but since almost all phones apart from Apple are already USB C, it's just a problem for Apple. Assuming it does go through in 24 months (it's not final, final yet), it may well be that Apple has already ditched ports and is entirely using wireless charging for its phones by then. Apart from that, I don't really know.

The main problem right now is that we got rid of all the people we needed to make this country work under the misguided lies of taking back our sovereignty (that we already had) that people just lapped up. My local petrol station closed today. It's only a matter of time before an ambulance or a fire engine will run dry, with terrible consequences.

I thought the Brexiteers might argue that EU mandates on using usb-c was an example of why Brexit was a good thing. It's like sticking with the imperial system as a way to show independence.

But, what happens? If gas stations are dry, will that encourage more reliance on other energy sources. Are the double deckers in London electric?

Er, I don't know - why are you always asking me these big questions I don't feel equipped to answer? 8-)

What is your government doing about climate change? Will more people start using solar power in New York? How about wind power in California? How do Californians feel about USB C ??????? IS USB C big in Texas??????

Are Greyhound buses electric?

NYC (at least the mayor) plans to buy more electric buses. :) but, afa the petrol shortage in England, I just read that it's mostly due to a lack of lorry drivers.
