But at the moment, it seems a slightly hypothetical situation and of course, I noted this morning as well that Parliament is actually adjourned for six weeks until the election so I guess the issue of consultation in Parliament might be rather difficult. Whatever Mr Johnson says about speaking up on the half of the Prime Minister,.

At the 2017 New York Auto Show, we sat down with Alanna Tracey-Bahri, Product Manager at BMW North America, to talk about the current U.S. lineup and future models. Among many topics, one came up consistently the future of diesels in the United States. One model that has yet to be announced in the new 5 Series lineup is a diesel, but according to Bahri, customers will soon have a choice. Today, Car and Driver confirms that the model in question will be the 2018 BMW 540d, which will join diesel versions of the 3 Series, X3, and X5, all of which are currently for sale after passing more stringent EPA emissions testing for the 2017 model year. The 540d is powered by a 3.0 liter six-cylinder turbo diesel making 316 horsepower and it's expected to have better fuel economy than the previous generation 535d which was rated at 30-mpg EPA combined rating.

" (citing IPSOS research). According to OECD research, Turkish students are the unhappiest in the world with 72 percent saying they are very unhappy with conditions. So given Turkey's very high rate of young population, up to six percent of the voters in the next election cycle, which starts in March 2019, will be first-time voters, which in my view is slipping from their [Erdogan government's] grasp”. 2019 is scheduled for an unprecedented three polls - of local, general and presidential elections. Erdogan’s success in the referendum was due in part to the overwhelmingly support he received in the rural heartland of the country, known as Anatolia, a region that has particularly benefited from the expansion of social security benefits under Erdogan’s AK Party rule. “I detect that certain voters are becoming clients of AKP, these people can't survive in the globalized economy of Turkey,” claims consultant Yesilada, “they are largely existing on account of the welfare state and also AKP has been very successful in imposing the view entitlements are coming form the party, rather than the state.

Powerful and reliable: these two terms perfectly sum up the demands placed on the V8 engines in the DTM. The six BMW drivers have just one engine each for the entire season. With this in mind, the engineers and mechanics at BMW Motorsport gave top priority to absolute precision during the production phase. Here is the lowdown on the BMW DTM engine, the BMW P66/1. In 2017, DTM regulations allow a larger diameter2 x 29 millimeters – for the air restrictors, through which the engine draws its combustion air. This results in an increase in engine power to over 500 hp . The engine aspirates 260 liters per second – that is 2,000 times as much as a human breathes. The pistons in the BMW P66/1 accelerate 600 times faster than a lunar rocket. The pistons in the engine cover a combined distance that is the equivalent of traveling from Munich to Sydney over the course of a season.

Dan Prosser 27 Apr 2017 £111,802 What is it? Porsche’s ultra high-performance road car division hasnt built a duff one yet. As the latest in a long line of spectacular cars, the new 911 GT3 carries on its shoulders a weight of expectation that most would find debilitating. Rather than being an all-new model it’s a heavily reworked version of the previous GT3, also based on the current 991-generation 911. Porsche’s Motorsport division has reengineered the normally-aspirated flat-six engine, the chassis and the aerodynamics, and for the first time the car is available with a choice of transmissions. Image 8 of 32 Image 8 of 32 That means the return of the manual 911 GT3 – the previous version was PDK only. Porsche Motorsport boss Andreas Preuninger reckons this GT3 is the best one yet.

Would WWE Raw's Finn Balor or SmackDown's John Cena be the better wrestler to build around? Would Bayley or Asuka be the better centerpiece of an upstart promotion? The 2017 Bleacher Report WWE and NXT fantasy draft dealt with those very questions. A trio of B/R WWE writers weighed the value of potential and star power, charisma and in-ring prowess as they each constructed their own fantasy promotion. Chris Mueller ( @BR_Doctor ), Erik Beaston ( @ErikBeaston ) and myself ( @ryandilbert ) partook. The imagined scenario is that WWE goes under and three enterprising investors scoop up all the company's talent, including its NXT prospects. A draft was held to decide who gets which stars. We first selected the wrestlers who would comprise our women's division in a six-round draft. The tag teams went second, with each writer nabbing five squads. The solo men were scooped up in a staggered four-round draft where we selected one Superstar in Round 1, two in Round 2 and so on.
