    Ot how times change

    Nowadays an aircraft can take out a target with great accuracy.
    Look back to when the raf decided to bomb the stricken Torrey canyon.
    It took the raf ( over 2 days) using
    161 bombs
    16 rockets
    1500t napalm
    9800 gal of kerosene to sort it out.
    Plus it was not moving.
    Safest place to stand must have been on the deck.

    One of our sponsors, Mears, shares that migrant housing contract.

    Serco has won the contract for the North West of England and the Midlands and East of England regions, where about 20,000 asylum seekers are living.

    Mears has been awarded contracts for Scotland, Northern Ireland and the North East, Yorkshire and the Humber.
