Re: Bottom bracket removal (help)

If it's just the left hand cup why not leave it in and buy a BB that uses a similar left hand cup. The spindle bearings etc are all attached to the right hand cup.

Don't mind separating Kent from the rest of the UK but why inflict it upon France?

7,000 long lorry queues is being put about by this Gove chap - he must be part of that Project Fear we heard so much about.

Re: Breaking International Law

If Mrs May's backstop agreement had been accepted by parliament. In the event of no deal where would the "border" have been placed? There wouldn't have been one. There would have been a customs union between the UK and the EU. But how about the border between Kent and the rest of the UK? ...

Re: Warning Dogs And Cows + Calves!

P.S.who is going to let go of the dogs lead in a situation like that? The natural reaction is the try to keep your dog safe, but this could end in tragedy. I’d of thought the natural reaction is to keep yourself safe. Dogs can look after themselves they can get kicked and head butted, I’ve seen ple...

Re: Breaking International Law

Mrs May refused any terms in her agreement that would have led to a "border" in the Irish Sea. Johnson readily agreed to such a thing in his "oven ready" deal. You've got things completely the wrong way round in your misogynist rant. If Mrs May's backstop agreement had been acce...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

When I say nothing hasad changed I mean it was corrupt then and now, with massive government contracts and limited oversight. They did make an attempt to change "culture and values" in the company though of course it may have been window dressing. Everybody above a certain level had to go...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

Serco is just the same. But I only mentioned G4S because it's G4S whose former directors are in court. I reported both to ministers some 15 years ago for falsifying prison transport figures and they were audited back then. Nothing has changed. Oh yes it has. Serco is now run by Winston Churchill's ...

Re: Breaking International Law

well I am glad Johnson got his bill thru the Commons with an impressive majority of 77 just short of the 80. I dont like Johnson or his govt but more up to the job than May who would have sold us out - a rather stupid woman. The situation we have at the moment - as a consequence of the GFA(+trade o...

I think it's pretty obvious by now that viruses are transmitted from one person to another. A bit daft to question that.

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

I heard today that permanent personal track and trace app was being set up for Boris Johnson. He needs a tag, definitely. There was a thread on the Digital Spy forums about what puts you off about a member of the opposite sex. For me it's ankle bracelets. Don't know why - wrist bracelets I'm ok wit...

Bizarre combination of empty shelves at the shops this market day. Some things I'd expect (there's a run on bog rol...
