Re: CUK supports BLM

Hi all, We all have preferences & prejudices, that is human nature. It is only when we become overtly judgemental that things go wrong, no spirit of "Live and let live" present, the insistence on conformity to the tastes & fancies we might impose on others is a control issue. As so...

Re: Antisocial cyclists

Well, PoB? Certainly not derogatory in my eyes, says a simple fact. When I'm getting picky over bad use of a cycle I usually refer to them as Muppets on wheels! That dates back to days of yore with "Drivers & Motorists", both use similar vehicles, but with completely different mind-set...

Re: E-scooters

Hello again, I still get no answer to my question - "What are elderly, deaf, disabled pedestrians to do when we get even more vehicular traffic on our pavements?"! Cars, pedal cycles, E:cycles. E:scooters are all vehicles, so under our laws must not use the pavements. What space is left fo...

Re: E-scooters

Hi All, If they had been marketed by Clive Sinclair then they would have been doomed to instant failure! But as I see it they were created by someone of a similar mind, laughable, that if they weren't dangerous,which they are! Used by antisocial louts they haven't got a single redeeming feature, tha...

Re: Things that get ignored in the hope that they go away.

Hi all, Me thinks hat Councillor Joe Anderson, elected Mayor of Liverpool will be hoping that the event of LFC taking the Premier League Title some 30 years after they last won the old First Division Championship! Well he would do, he's a Bluenose!!! :( :( :( :oops: Everton FC supporter. Watching hi...

Re: Which group is the worst? Is that fair?

Quite correct Cyril, bang on the money! I make a point of trying to correct the practises of errant road-users of all types, managed to avoid the nut house so far? But I work on the principle that it needs a well balanced cyclist to live a safe & proper life, to wit "A Tricyclist" :D :...

Re: Mc D's are back.

Hi there, Trick photos must be all the rage right now? Image in Sat 27th Daily Telegraph shows a couple in beachwear walking through the throng inflated balloons to their faces, the man inhaling from it??? He might have been busy blowing it up, but I am suspicious about it? Not like the caps making ...

Re: Which group is the worst? Is that fair?

Hello again, So to improve our chances of staying alive and healthy, apart from Covid, we have to wait until my bum heals over? We must amass piles of acceptable evidence. But acceptable to whom??? That must mean the "Usual Suspects", the ones who don't believe the sights in front of their...

Re: Which group is the worst? Is that fair?

Oh No, Here we go again? Have you got empirical evidence! The fact that little effort is made to obtain data over disobedience on the road, we all see umpteen examples as we go about our lives. If we had many more evidencial cameras, with that garnered material being applied to prosecuting all offen...

Re: Olympus quits camera business after 84 years

Hi Guys, I'm currently playing with a Sony AX6000, employs an APC sensor in full frame mode, so has the same image ratio as my Nikon D90, with far less weight. The body with two lenses weighs about my strength limit. Only the interface between the camera & lap-top is giving me issues, too compli...

Re: Which is it most important to reopen asap? Pubs or Schools

Hi there, Certain things date us? First for me is having had to convert from "God Save The King" to "God Save The Queen"! The second thing modern faddists have never had to do - Cope with "Pounds, Shillings, Pence, Half-Pence and Farthing". I don't think any of our fell...
