    V is voltage in electronics/electricity just as "j" denotes imaginary only in electronics and electricity.

    "U" for voltage and "i" for imaginary are used in other disciplines to avoid confusion.

    It also tends to be in mainland Europe where U is used, not in the UK.

    Meanwhile it happened just an hour ago as I went over a speed hump at the beginning of a two mile drive to/from shops

    Georg Ohm used U for voltage in his famous law. U = Unterschied meaning difference. Voltage is potential difference.

    Yep. But do you suppose those screaming ''will of the people'' will permit another referendum now so much has changed over the four and a half years since the bored ****wits wanted ''a change''? More chance of shoving hot butter up a wildcat's arse with a red hot poker than that happening. Not a hope in hell another referendum would deliver the same result. But we're saddled with this ****e from half a decade ago. Pitiful.
