Renault Alaskan sau Duster Oroch PickUp?

Azi citeam pe Gizmag despre noul Renault Alaskan, primul pick-up de la Renault de 1 tona.

Renault Alaskan – Duster Oroch

Dusterul Oroch e ceva mai mic dupa cate putem vedea in imaginea de mai sus.

Initial am crezut ca e un fel de Duster PickUp mai musculos, dar se pare ca e de fapt un Nissan Navara cu emblema de Renault.

Din cate am citit va fi disponibil in America de sud iar mai apoi il vor livra si in restul lumii. N-am citit nimic despre Europa, desi o astfel de masina cred ca s-ar potrivi de minune pe strazile de la noi.


Din nou despre Brexit

Phew, de unde sa incep?

M-am inselat amarnic cand am crezut ca Boris va fi noul prim ministru. Oricum David Cameron l-a pus intr-o pozitie de sah-mat, dar nu a fost cazul sa se ajunga pana acolo. Michael Gove l-a lucrat pe la spate si uite asa Boris si-a dat seama ca nu are sprijinul necesar sa castige alegerile din partid.

Asta ar putea fi si o binecuvantare pentru Boris, a scapat de situatia de cacao care i-a pregatit-o David.

Apoi Nigel Farage a demisionat de la conducerea UKIP si cica vrea sa se ocupe mai mult de familie.

Si asa, incetul cu incetul cei din tabara Leave se dezic de responsabilitate si demisioneaza sau se fac ca ploua 🙂

Lira e in cadere libera. Azi am trimis niste bani in tara, si rata de schimb a fost 5.27 iar cu o zi inainte de Brexit am trimis bani cu 5.9

Dolarul a scazut de la 1.47 la 1.29
Euro a scazut de la 1.30 la 1.17

Si conform unor specialisti in domeniu lira va continua sa se deprecieze pentru a stimula exporturile din UK.

Problema e ca urmatorul concediu in Spania va costa semnificativ mai mult decat ar fi costat fara Brexit.

Ca noroc ca am platit vila, luat biletele de avion si am inchiriat masina inainte de Brexit cand paritatea GBP / EURO era mult mai buna.

Acțiunile RBS și Barclays au fost suspendate de la tranzacționare pe bursa din UK.

Vineri dimineață vorbeam pe messenger cu Răzvan și i-am spus că bursa se va prăbuși și vor opri tradingul. Nu s-a întâmplat vineri dar azi tocmai s-a adeverit ce am spus vineri. Share-urile RBS și Barclays tocmai au fost suspendate de la tranzacționare pentru ca au picat în cap. Și nu vorbim de magazinul de la colț ci de 2 dintre cele mai mari bănci din UK. Vineri cei de la Barclays au pierdut 35% din valoarea acțiunilor pe bursă. În 2008 asa a început haosul cu Lehmann brothers.

I-am mai spus lui Răzvan ca ce urmează  după Brexit va fi mult mai rău decât ce a fost în 2008. Sper să mă înșel!

Brexit day 4

Am primit pe WhatsApp următorul comentariu, care în ultimele zile circulă frenetic în mediul online din UK, comentariu în care e explicat cum le-a dat șah mat David Cameron celor din tabăra Leave, în special lui Boris:

From the guardians comments section:

If Boris Johnson looked downbeat yesterday, that is because he realises that he has lost.

Perhaps many Brexiters do not realise it yet, but they have actually lost, and it is all down to one man: David Cameron.

With one fell swoop yesterday at 9:15 am, Cameron effectively annulled the referendum result, and simultaneously destroyed the political careers of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and leading Brexiters who cost him so much anguish, not to mention his premiership.


Throughout the campaign, Cameron had repeatedly said that a vote for leave would lead to triggering Article 50 straight away. Whether implicitly or explicitly, the image was clear: he would be giving that notice under Article 50 the morning after a vote to leave. Whether that was scaremongering or not is a bit moot now but, in the midst of the sentimental nautical references of his speech yesterday, he quietly abandoned that position and handed the responsibility over to his successor.

And as the day wore on, the enormity of that step started to sink in: the markets, Sterling, Scotland, the Irish border, the Gibraltar border, the frontier at Calais, the need to continue compliance with all EU regulations for a free market, re-issuing passports, Brits abroad, EU citizens in Britain, the mountain of legistlation to be torn up and rewritten … the list grew and grew.

The referendum result is not binding. It is advisory. Parliament is not bound to commit itself in that same direction.

The Conservative party election that Cameron triggered will now have one question looming over it: will you, if elected as party leader, trigger the notice under Article 50?

Who will want to have the responsibility of all those ramifications and consequences on his/her head and shoulders?

Boris Johnson knew this yesterday, when he emerged subdued from his home and was even more subdued at the press conference. He has been out-maneouvered and check-mated.

If he runs for leadership of the party, and then fails to follow through on triggering Article 50, then he is finished. If he does not run and effectively abandons the field, then he is finished. If he runs, wins and pulls the UK out of the EU, then it will all be over – Scotland will break away, there will be upheaval in Ireland, a recession … broken trade agreements. Then he is also finished. Boris Johnson knows all of this. When he acts like the dumb blond it is just that: an act.

The Brexit leaders now have a result that they cannot use. For them, leadership of the Tory party has become a poison chalice.

When Boris Johnson said there was no need to trigger Article 50 straight away, what he really meant to say was “never”. When Michael Gove went on and on about “informal negotiations” … why? why not the formal ones straight away? … he also meant not triggering the formal departure. They both know what a formal demarche would mean: an irreversible step that neither of them is prepared to take.

All that remains is for someone to have the guts to stand up and say that Brexit is unachievable in reality without an enormous amount of pain and destruction, that cannot be borne. And David Cameron has put the onus of making that statement on the heads of the people who led the Brexit campaign.
