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...

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 ...

Re: Savage machines

Hi there, They are brilliant to watch! Bloody great pencil sharpeners that fell, trim the branches off then to cut to a pre-determined length, all in a programmed fashion. Coupled with the more familiar smaller pencil sharpener the trimmings are turned into mere shavings, Superb. TTFN MM

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

Hi Roubaixtuesday, Let me correct my wording to explain a constantly raised point. The way you treat all who seek a proper orderly ingress into the U.K. is as follows - You don't out and out accuse any of us of "Being" xenophobic, what you do though is accuse us of "Being on a "X...

Re: Removing a stuck chainring bolt

Hi there, I was taught to clean them up to de-grease them, then assemble them with the thread coated in Rubber Solution. Nip up nicely, then they won't seize or vibrate loose. Works for me. TTFN MM

Hi all, Reminds me of the time they announced the development of the "Male Contraceptive Pill"?

Hi Psmathe, Always view the creation of such economic models as about as reliable as feeling seaweed to predict weather!
