    Another good point! I'd hate to be starting a new job, but working from home, without somebody on an adjacent desk you could call over to ask for guidance about a particular process, or talk over the history of a situation.

    There seems to be a lot of chatter about the swift change happening with the wholesave move to working from home. This will help ease traffic hot diggety no doubt. It frees up big buildings to convert to 350,000 bedsits but on the flip side when companies are confident with a remote workforce it's all gonna go to the eastern bloc.

    I worked from home fifteen years, graphic artist, made some canny cash. Was a hoot watching porn whilst getting paid 25ph
    Good point on the remote workforce. My wife buys in IT services that increasingly aren't done in-house. The IT world is full of snake oil salesmen and from what i can make out is full of a lot of blather because the majority of people don't know what they're doing. Just because kids now have a degree, are adept at playing computer games, and are brimming with confidence, doesn't make them IT experts. Where she's found some of the most reliable expertise is in Poland. Well educated, multi-lingual contractors who supply at a more competitive rate.

    We lived in the sticks and my dad ran a building firm, there weren't many cars about then, but when I started driving in the early 60s it always amused me that I would pass other builders who were going to work in our village, whilst we were going to work in theirs.

    One of the fundamental flaws with road improvements is that they allow that to happen on a much bigger scale over much longer distances, but if everybody was forced to use electric vehicles with limited battery range it might stop a lot of cross over traffic.........maybe.

    Kev your M27 is much like London and home counties the M25 - whilst originally designed to enable heavy traffic to bypass London and relieve the old North and South Circular routes at first it initially enabled manufacturing and service providers the opportunity to move out of London locations to far less expensive premises with the added attraction of easy access to the rest of the UK. Many employees followed the manufacturers and would also reap the initial benefit of far cheaper housing. With the advantage of using the then new motorway network for travel people who remained in London (and those wishing to commute back-in) had (initially) the perfect low cost answer.

    What plums never realise with electricity is that as soon as demand increases it wont be cheap anymore. Fuel is only about 35p per litre the rest tax. Theyl just do the same and hike electricity which as pointed out we dont have the infrastructure for

    With the zero road deaths and accidents promised by this 'wonderful' new world - will insurance be a thing of the past? If you cant have an accident then you dont need insurance.

    Interesting the research into travel/motion sickness going on now - as the 'johhnycabs' that are coming will cause many people to get really nauseous on journeys - they recognise this as a really serious issue!
