    AC is supplied to the car at the usual mains domestic voltage, 240V give or take a bit & the cables are often 10mm, 3 cores for single phase, 5 cores for 3-phase, plus a smaller comms cable for the car to tell the unit to stop sending electricity.

    Oh julie i was just about to answer that and you beat me to it lol.

    Tharg Sonos speakers are fantastic we have them dotted around the house and the sound quality is great. We have a soundbar which is connected to the tv with 2No. sonos 1 speakers which creates surround sound, brilliant.

    As Joss says they are not cheap but if you use them a lot they are worth every penny.

    Martinod I’m sure you can leave to pick up your car, essential journeys only, i think a disabled person having their car would be covered by that.

    Moderna: Covid vaccine shows nearly 95% protection

    A new vaccine that protects against Covid-19 is nearly 95% effective, early data from US company Moderna shows.

    The results come hot on the heels of similar results from Pfizer, and add to growing confidence that vaccines can help end the pandemic.

    Both companies used a highly innovative and experimental approach to designing their vaccines.
    Moderna says it is a “great day” and they plan to apply for approval to use the vaccine in the next few weeks.

    However, this is still early data and key questions remain unanswered.
    How good is it?

    The trial involved 30,000 people in the US with half being given two doses of the vaccine, four weeks apart. The rest had dummy injections.

    The analysis was based on the first 95 to develop Covid-19 symptoms.
    Only five of the Covid cases were in people given the vaccine, 90 were in those given the dummy treatment. The company says the vaccine is protecting 94.5%.

    The data also shows there were 11 cases of severe Covid in the trial, but none happened in people who were immunised.

    “The overall effectiveness has been remarkable… it’s a great day,” Tal Zaks, the chief medical officer at Moderna, told BBC News.

    What don’t we know?

    We still do not know how long immunity will last as volunteers will have to be followed for much longer before that can be answered.
    There are hints it offers some protection in older age groups, who are most at risk of dying from Covid, but there is not full data.
    Mr Zaks told the BBC their data so far suggests the vaccine “does not appear to lose its potency” with age.
    And it is not known whether the vaccine just stops people becoming severely ill, or if it stops them spreading the virus too.
    All these questions will affect how a coronavirus vaccine is used.

    Is it safe?

    No significant safety concerns have been reported, but nothing, including paracetamol, is 100% safe.
    Short lived fatigue, headache and pain were reported after the injection in some patients.
    “These effects are what we would expect with a vaccine that is working and inducing a good immune response,” said Prof Peter Openshaw, from Imperial College London.

    How does this compare to the Pfizer vaccine?
    Both vaccines use the same approach of injecting part of the virus’s genetic code in order to provoke an immune response.
    The preliminary data we have seen so far is very similar – around 90% protection for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and around 95% for Moderna’s.
    However, both trials are still taking place and the final numbers could change.
    Moderna’s vaccine appears to be easier to store as it remains stable at minus 20C for up to six months and can be kept in a standard fridge for up to a month.
    Pfizer’s vaccine needs ultra-cold storage at around minus 75C, but it can be kept in the fridge for five days.
    The Sputnik V vaccine, developed in Russia, has also released very early data which suggests it is 92% effective.
    When will I get it?
    That depends on where you are in the world and how old you are.
    Moderna says it will apply to regulators in the US in the coming weeks. It expects to have 20 million doses available in the country.
    The company hopes to have up to one billion doses available for use around the world next year and is planning to seek approval in other countries too.
    The UK government is still negotiating with Moderna as their vaccine is not one of the six it has already pre-ordered.
    The UK has outlined plans that prioritise the oldest people for immunisation.
    How does it work?
    Moderna has developed an “RNA vaccine” – it means part of the coronavirus’s genetic code is injected into the body.
    This starts making viral proteins, but not the whole virus, which is enough to train the immune system to attack.
    It should train the body to make both antibodies – and another part of the immune system called T-cells to fight the coronavirus.

    What reaction has there been?
    “This news from Moderna is tremendously exciting and considerably boosts optimism that we will have a choice of good vaccines in the next few months,” said Prof Peter Openshaw from Imperial College London.
    He added: “We need more complete details than we have in this press release, but this announcement adds to the general feeling of optimism.”
    Prof Trudie Lang, from the University of Oxford, said: “It is very good news indeed to see another vaccine coming through with similar efficacy results as were reported last week from Pfizer.
    “This is also an interim analysis, which means that there were enough cases within the vaccinated volunteers to give statistical significance and allow the team to break the blind to determine who had the active vaccine and who had placebo.”

    Richard that is a fair way but how do you do that when all cars are BEVs, do you increase the price of electricity in the home, if you can charge from home. Im not sure if smart meters are that smart, that they can identify when a car is being charged rather than the electricity used to run your home, but if they are this could be an option.

    The public chargers would be taxed similarly.

    A long-rumoured roads pricing scheme is being considered by the UK government to help fill the tax shortfall caused by the gradual switch to electric cars, The Times is reporting.

    The paper claims that chancellor Rishi Sunak has received a Treasury paper for a nationwide road pricing scheme. He is said to be “very interested” in the idea , which would be required to help balance out the expected loss of up to £40 billion of tax revenue from fuel duty and vehicle excise duty.

    The report comes as the government is this week expected to announce that the proposed ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars will be brought forward to 2030. That’s substantially sooner than the current 2040 proposal, but new hybrids will be able to use combustion engines until 2035.

    Although the scheme is said to be not “imminent” by a government source speaking to The Times, it is described as an “increasingly pressing” issue for the Treasury. It has outlined potential options for road pricing in an analysis report, but it seems no decision has been made.

    In October 2019, the cross-party House of Commons Transport Select Committee pledged that it would start “a national debate” over the introduction of potential pay-per-mile road pricing schemes. A Labour government first considered road pricing 13 years ago, but plans were dropped over fears of a public backlash.

    A prime example of how a national road pricing scheme could operate is seen on the M6 toll road in the West Midlands. To access the road, cars must pay a daily £6.70 fee for weekdays, with a £12 fee for HGVs. Congestion charging in central London has already been expanded, with a second charge added in 2019 to further penalise the most polluting cars.

    Commenting on the report, RAC head of roads policy Nicholas Lyes said “While not paying car tax is clearly an incentive to go fully electric at the moment, we will very soon need a system that can levy tax on both conventionally fuelled and battery electric vehicles fairly. If this isn’t addressed, we risk finding ourselves in a situation where petrol and diesel drivers continue to pay all the tax for using the roads which is unsustainable.”

    Mike, rox I’m not delighted Biden is in, I’m just delighted that Trump is out.

    I also think calling Republicans Tories is incorrect, both Democrats and Republicans would pass as Tories from our prospective. The Republicans are more like the ERG wing of the Tories.

    I do believe if there have been irregularities they should be addressed and fully scrutinised however i think all of this mud slinging is just Trumps way of deflecting the fact that he has lost. There would need to be thousands of fake ballots to get Trump back into the lead in Pennsylvania.
