Re: Most buy-to-let lenders refuse loans when tenants are on benefits

Actually a high proportion of them are asylum seekers ... ... not being able to legally work is never good. 2 days a week the Eastwood Aldi is closed in the afternoon as they take over the shop and select their weeks shopping which is paid for by the local authority ... Asylum seekers from Sudan, I...

Re: Most buy-to-let lenders refuse loans when tenants are on benefits

Rotherham South Yorkshire ... not exactly renowned for it's vineyards and fruit picking industries ... Am I to believe that all the immigrants now living in "Eastwoodistan" are vagrants of one form or another living of the state or perhaps child molesters,stealing housing from more deserv...

Re: Most buy-to-let lenders refuse loans when tenants are on benefits

Here in Rotherham the social housing shortage is due to the large immigrant community, not a lack of built environment. Whole areas of the town including the centre and Eastwood, known locally as eastwoodistan, are over 90% immigrant populated. However much or little the council build the immigrsnt...

Re: HC update - opening motor vehicle doors ...

I'm just suggesting something where they could be even clearer. On the subject of people who only comply with what suits them, I did say:- ... it would highlight to drivers - or those who bothered to read the HC what cyclists are doing ... Point taken. There was a time when a public information fil...

Re: Can't remove TA Crankset.

A two legged puller would shift it.
Alernatively a foot long piece of 2x1 timber with one end on the backside of the crank as as near to the BB as possible,and a sharp whack on the other end from the opposite side of the bike.

Re: Electric cars

Electric cars will only ever solve the concentrated pollution problem but not the congestion or the clogged up streets with unused vehicles. I've got my fingers crossed for self driving cars. A lot of people I know who have a car daren't use it because they'd lose their on street parking space. Now...

Going off the photos there isn't room with that chainring,there maybe with a smaller chainring and a smaller sprocket to compensate.

Re: Electric cars

The "labour market" from what I gather is overwhelmingly short term contracts,as a result people have to have flexible travel arrangements which means a car is a necessity for most. The vast number of people will only ever cycle 3 miles or less per one way journey or 6miles or less on an e...

Any given ride for me varies between 10 and 40miles depending on who's the stoker on the tandem,or time I have to myself when riding solo.


No it doesn't matter, I was just curious.

Re: HC update - opening motor vehicle doors ...

TC The rules are clear to anyone who chooses to read them,the problems begin when cyclists and it's particularly cyclist are treated with contempt by those drivers who choose to in the full knowledge,due to a lack of police and harsh enough sentences (should they ever be caught) handed down by weak ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

They all worry me for different reasons, sadly. Me too,what we have to choose is the better of available options.The Tories and New Labour as was were never a good option IMO. As I've posted previously though my instinctive alignment with the equal society movement has been significantly weakened b...

Re: HC update - opening motor vehicle doors ...

Sorry, but I take exception to that choice of words. I do not, repeat, not , wilfully play any sort of games with erring car occupants. Sorry if you find it exceptional. I still feel it's accurate. You take the risk of a car door because you won't take the risk of an unreasonable ignorant following...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Not sure I couldn't label any/all Parties thus. Some are worse than others. Agree, but I don't see a 'whole society' party, do you? I don't see a perfect party anywhere but I do see a more "equal society" party than the one currently making a complete and utter mess of the country I live ...
