Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

It may well be over simplistic, however it doesn't alter the fact that we have a finite amount of brain power and if it's being used for one thing it can't be used for something else. But, equally, it may well be over simplistic to assume that spare brain power enough to handle a short simple call ...

Re: M1 Minibus "Accident"

Do police officers ever use mobile phones while they are driving? Argumentum ad verecundiam , and a weak one at that. In particular, congitive bias . To answer the question: they probably do.
