Re: New Scottish transport bill

Hello all, Quite why no council has take up my suggestion for curbing on pavement parking - Landmines under every first flag of the pavement, free wheel chairs for all survivors! :shock: Street masons would have to be careful with their Beetles :lol: . . But one thing which I would like the Scottish...

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

Hi again all, Maybe we should follow the Douglas Adams route, "The Restaurant at the End of he Universe"? "Time to meet the meat!". Where the animal offers various sections of itself for eating. "My liver is very tasty?". Would one want to eat an animal that didn't want...

Re: The right way to handle the Scotish Independance?

Hi all, With regards to any future referendum I'm sure the question of "Non-Resident Votes" will be raised again, much in the same way as it was over the E.U. Elections. So should folk who don't live and work in a country have a vote to decide the outcome of an issue that doesn't directly ...

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

Hi all, Been away for a few days, so nly just caught up with thread drift, which I'm often accused of :oops: . But as I now read things the errant US lady can now be stunned "Halal" or "Kosher" style, chlorinated and flown back to the UK? :shock: . But first she must have the pro...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Hi Al :) , Maybe overhead cable electrification may not be appropriate for all lines, especially small rural ones, but Third Rail would certainly work! Many lines don't need HS2 style transportation, even Merseyrail Lines are third rail, with speeds appropriate for Extra-Urban use. One flaw in the F...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Hi 661-Pete, 210 years George Stephenson, father of railways, forecast that "In 50 Years all trains will be moved by electricity" ! So that means tat with Chis Grayling's help we are 160 years behind progress. If we could get trains to be "Wind Powered" the Houses of Parliament w...

Hi OldjohnW, I'm with you mate, the journey should make up the experience, so flying ain't my bag!

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

Hi there, Now that would just about buy me he "Tricycle of my Dreams"! It wouldn't actually cost me hat much but because I would be able to ride it I would feel obliged to give generously to the medical charities that have enabled me to survive to this day. Till the day of the big win arri...

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

Hi Folk, I don't recall the issue of an E.U. Army being on the agenda in Brussels? But apparently one of the Crony Place -Men at the Super State is talking up the need? Certainly wasn't mentioned during the Euro Elections. Or was the small print smaller than usual? It is always said that Leavers nev...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Hi Al :D , From a Tree Hugger position that looks like a good starter! Adding eating all foods in a raw state, drinking recycled urine you might just solve the over population problem as well? It would push me to ending it all! :roll: What might really push us to melt-down is if more of the ordnance...

Re: Safety wear for cyclists

Hi there, I think we need to wear clearly visible signs for "High Explosives On Board!", and even then it may need to be in Braille :shock: .

Re: Number plates for cycles ? - Insurance company discussion article

Hi Utility cyclist, Sorry to say it but it sounds like you have more Petrol Head genes than this old cloth eared cyclist/pedestrian! The number of times I've been bashed about by folk who insist on snow-ploughing me aside on a pavement/shared use area outnumbers the hairs on my head!! I may be thinn...

Hi Psmathe, I was thinking along those lines exactly! Why should a cook or gardener be granted immunity passe?

Re: Beeps

Hi 661-Pete, I was in a Harry Ramsden fish restaurant in Liverpool when apparently the Alarm went off! The Strobe Light was a very pale blue, mounted on a wall, almost invisible during daylight hours. I sat there tucking in to my F/C/MP's when all around me fled? So I would say that colour & pla...
