Re: Exempt or not?

Hi, I wear a sunflower lanyard with my "Hidden Disabilities" plates,respiratory and H.I., so people only need to glance at them! With the railways it is a condition of travel, under Railway By-laws, that unless in an exempt category one must wear an appropriate face covering! No mask, no t...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Yo all, Well he'll be mad as hell at the revelation that he has a Chinese Bank Account? My wife has just told me, so ask her for a citation :oops: .
Public scrutiny of tax records should be available un Freedom of Information Rules, after all if you've got nothing to hide? :shock: :roll: :lol: MM

Re: Any recent experience of driving licence renewal?

Hi again, The Field Test Condition comes after a driver has self declared a temporary medical condition, in my case a minor stroke which the investigation led to them finding a brain tumour! All of my specialists did their tests & trials, with the result that my documentation cleared me to drive...

Re: Northampton Cycling and Walking Plan

Morning, They have ticked the box, so will be eligible for money in some area or another. Best Effort would never be on the cards, just "Going Through the Motions" is enough, smile contentedly!

Re: Any recent experience of driving licence renewal?

Morning all, The Paper Licence has one serious fault, if it suffers from handling, becomes ripped or splits into parts, mine did, then it becomes invalid! So then you have to apply for a plastic one, no more paper ones issued, so you then have the 10 year renewal issue problem. The DVLA holds no rec...

Re: NHS Track and Trace

Afternoon all, There is no likelihood that there will be a technical solution for behavioural tracking, so all emphasis on it's use in this pandemic is pointless! Bear in mind a few points, people who don't own a mobile phone, people who have the wrong generation of phone, people who don't have thei...

Re: Pop-up lane backlash now 'official'

Hi Drosall, You should appreciate the fact that many of those "Pop-Up" lanes can be dangerous for tricyclists, I speak from experience! Ill conceived, poorly executed, often making motorist even more intolerant of cyclist. Hope the Minister bins boh them and so called "Smart Motorways...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

Hi, Reminds me of the Methodist Minister asking in chapel "What is the Oldest profession?", He contended that it was Pharmacy!
Said that it said so in the Bible? "Moses took two tablets and departed up the mountain to pray!" :roll: :roll: MM

Re: Anyone living in new lock down areas?

Good Morning, A small point, but pertinent! That stupid Gym owner has his business in Moreton, in the Wirral, not Liverpool. Rather like a Cockney only being someone born within the sound of Bow Bells, so a Scouser can only be someone born in Liverpool, not Bootle, Wirral or anywhere outside the cit...

Re: Anyone living in new lock down areas?

Hi all, Liverpool? Far too many ignorant, self-centred dipsticks! I'll carry my "Social Distancing Measure" tool, stout walking stick, encroach at their peril!!!
Now we just need the Welsh First Minister to stop Mayor Joe front bolting over to Talacre? IGICB MM

Re: How wide is a bike?

Morning all, Why the "Narrow Minded Minded" Bike word? All statutes regarding rod provision & safety state "Cycles", so widen to question and he outlook! No one asks how wide a car is, because they vary so much, so it is with cycles. To put it clearly "Cycling is a Broad...

Re: How wide is a bike?

Afternoon all, I say 1 metre, the width of my elbows when riding!
But if the question becomes "How Wide is a Cycle?", then the answer can be much wider. Check out the width of a "Hen and Chickens" machine :lol: MM

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Hi, Nye Bevan used to do his own tax fiddles, putting all sorts of non acceptable costs onto his farm accounts, claiming tax breaks! Telling the Inland Revenue to mind their own beeswax. He was a notorious fiddler, so much for socialist values? MM
