Not sure if any of you are at the arms fair this week in London.

However it’s good to see the military embracing EVs. See here a SurRon electric motorcycle on a truck:

122722


I’ll Post anything else I see later this week.

It’s not open to the general public. You have to apply for and be vetted before you’re able to buy tickets. It’s strictly for military personnel and people that work in the defence industry.

Is that just the UK armed forces and defence companies, or is it open to other countries, like the Saudis?

It's nothing to do with that. If you're in the armed services then fine. I don't see why the general public would be interested. This isn't the US.
It's getting that way with the ubiquity of Armed Forces representation at every sporting event. I have a lot of Forces relatives and have the utmost respect for them, but I really dislike the US style worship that they attract from some.

As I'm sure you realised, my US comment was not about the military as such, but about an interest in arms and armaments by the general public.

At least Wallmart have stopped selling assault rifles recently. Maybe the lunacy is abating. Led by the most inspiring president....................... Maybe not, then.
