Re: Who runs the country?

If you haven't already, then read this... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23120225-the-establishment?ac=1&from_search=true That book is a decent long version of his columns, and while I think he introduced some valid criticisms of neoliberalism and the 'establishment', he doesn't really get...

Re: Must overtake, bicycle...

Several posts highlight this as a driver problem, but my experience on the local shared use paths suggests it isn't confined to them. Of course the dangers posed and the possible consequences are not usually comparable, but it isn't so much a case of "some people turn into idiots behind the wh...

Re: Ofo and YouGov study press for segregated tracks

IMO UK roads are a hostile environment for cyclists,at best we're tolerated and at worst despised by motorists. True. But the best response to this is surely to segregate the motorists not punish the cyclists by removing them from our streets. By the way, there are lots of intermediate steps that w...

Re: Ofo and YouGov study press for segregated tracks

IMO UK roads are a hostile environment for cyclists,at best we're tolerated and at worst despised by motorists. I wittness this on a daily basis when I ride a bike on the road,this situation leads to fear to a greater or lesser extent and I'm a seasoned cyclist of many years standing. How such a sit...

Re: Recommend me a head torch

A couple of points that may have been made earlier in the thread but I'm not trawling through again. Early in the thread Mecalia complained about AAA batteries not lasting as long as AA's and much has talked about what I'd term as "serious" head torches. IMO as with any tool I ask how much...

Re: It is polite to THANK people who respond to your question

I think it's good manners to thank someone for specific questions asked,but I'm also aware that sometimes people don't for many reasons and so don't take it as a personal insult if they don't.

Re: Anyone watching... ( a Telly program )

The "A" word. I rarely watch television but knowing someone with an autistic child and having yesterday had this programme brought to my attention, I watched last nights episode. It appeared to me to be a modern day version of "Sons and Lovers" with the autistic child and intera...

Re: Nuclear power safe?

I'd recommend 'FUKUSHIMA The Death Knell for Nuclear Energy' by Sean McDonagh. I'm a component reliability engineer and a lot of what he discusses resonates with me, I've serious doubts about building anything that runs that hot and fast that can be reliable and safe for decades. I'm firmly in favo...

Re: How to get oil out of Goretex Jacket

Initially I'd try neat washing up liquid rubbed in with a finger.If that fails White Spirit on a rag rubbed in followed by washing up liquid again then rinsed off.
