Re: E bikes - do you secretly want one?

Tired before I go out? I stay at home. Commuting isn't an option on a bike so its recreational which to me means riding until I am tired. I still see the same things as riding slowly. I still stop and look at things but I feel more satisfied when worn out. It means I can eat more junk for a start. ...

Re: £220 per year to park you car at work, the joys of the NHS.

Maybe if the NHS was funded properly it wouldn't need to keep finding ways to scrape in a bit of cash from car park fees to keep afloat. To demand people to pay to park at their place of work is diabolical,to ask people to pay a nominal fee for the upkeep of carparks at hospitals is reasonable IMO b...

Re: Rape accusations

IMHO the problem with the accustion of rape is proof.
Generally unless there's witnesses or incriminating evidence,such as DNA or social media,etc,it comes down to accused word v the accuser.
