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

Hi Debs :) , I don't really know how to say this without the "Language Police" jumping all over me? But the dreadful concoction liquid that is marketed in the U.K. as "Stella Artois" is almost universally known as "W*fe B*at*r", ouch! A cocktail of antisocial behaviour ...

Re: Whats wrong with Pacer trains?

Hi all, Quite comparable with Northern Trains, simply "Shocking Service"! One can still find evidence of the system, but only when the tide has gone out. I think that the Brunel Atmospheric Railway would be a better option than NR. I bought a nice Northern Rail Pacer last Christmas, a Dapo...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Hi Mate, I feel the expression "Telling one's Granny how to suck eggs" coming on! Remember the Pre- WW2 slogan ? "As old as the industry, as modern as the hour". One of my mates played quite a large part in exporting jobs from the UK, he put in place the drive train plant in Togl...

Re: Savage machines

Hey Cugel, Are you trying to tell me that Dual Mass Flywheels are progress? You'b saying next that Flap & Paddle Gearboxes are better than the Van Dorn Rubber Band Transmission? Remember not all new is better or in any way "Progressive"! The Daf system morphed into the metal/rubber com...

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

l 661-Pete, We in the know all agree the civilization ends just as one passes south of Watford! They've spent to long moaning about Southern Rail without knowing what a really cr*ap rail service is like, oh that you could experience Norther Trains at it's worst :twisted: . I personally think it is d...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Afternoon all, Always makes me laugh out loud when I see one of them new fangled "Mini Countryman" things, emblazoned with Union Flags. Many things wrong with them but I'll stick to two for now - (1) "Mini" should read "Maxi" is in the long lamented BL job, great concep...

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

Hi MickF, Plus +++ for that! With regards to Boris, how many of his detractors have written to him to point out his errors? I have, when he was editor of he Spectator. I got a full & frank apology from him. Only Tony Benn ranks higher than him on that score, way better than the chip off the Benn...

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

Hi there, I understand fully about the change in language, but sometimes folk don't bear in mind the fact that people are always being offensive in their remarks, often then react without understanding the context & time-line involved. I'll tell one incident that may illustrate what can occur. M...

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

Hello again, In my 70+ years I have seen so many changes on the ground, but also what words one is allowed to use without being called offensive! It is now at the stage where one can't say anything to move things forward. First World, New World, Third World all have been used then abused as Inapprop...

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

Well then, what should we all do to please you? Any words these days are called offensive in some folks eyes! How are we to satisfy your rebuke of anything that we say & do? What is your take on how we make things work, that is without exploitation & in an environmentally sensible way? You n...

Re: The right way to handle the Scottish Independence?

Hi there, I'll let the more knowledgeable ones answer these simple questions - If Scotland only has 9% membership of M.P.'s how does that compare with their actual percentage make-up of the U.K. population, and secondly how do the other component nations compare in such fashion?

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

Hello Bonyfishblues, Sorry that the term "Begging Bowl" offends, but it does encapsulate the case non the less! If on looks at the table of the actual contributors to the E.U. Pot it will be quite clear that a very small number of constituent nations actually contribute to the kitty! Greec...

Hello Brynpoeth :D , So you are now questioning the whole history of mans's development, the progression from Bone, Antler or Stone Axe, learning enough to then use Bronze, moving on to Ion & related Alloys, on through the ages until we get Silicon Chips being Boss in the workplace, where will i...

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

Hi Folk :) , So if the group of Balkan countries get the right to join the E.U. that will make that august body a better club to belong to? With more begging bowl states surely the problems posed to the nett contribution countries will be that much greater, which with so few members paying the true ...
