Re: Stopping smoking near cycle racks?

Isn't a cycle rack a type of bike shed? Behind the bike shed is a traditional smoking place.

Re: Is the UK government an incompentent bunch of liars?

Make no mistake, he tells ministers what to do. And they do it. Even to the extent of telling them to sack their own advisors and, in at least one case, sacking an advisor without reference to the minister concerned. Sajid Javid resigned as chancellor rather than accept a bunch of advisors chosen b...

Re: Is the UK government an incompentent bunch of liars?

Mr Cummings is an adviser to our elected government. He does not decide policy. Elected people employ thousands of advisers. I once worked in a council education department and part of my job was to advise councillors on policy. The ultimate responsibility about what to do rested with the councillo...

One of the main given reasons for leaving the EU was to get away from unelected bureacrats running the show. Our government doesn't seem so bothered now.

Re: Is the UK government an incompentent bunch of liars?

Surprising this topic has run to sixty three pages when one would have been sufficient to answer the question posed in the affirmative.

Re: Dishwashers

They do sell varying sizes of dishwasher to suit different households. RE tumble driers, if you have central heating the best way to dry clothes is hang them in the boiler room. It's warm and well ventilated because of the amount of air the boiler draws in for combustion. Warmer weather just hang th...

Re: Presumed liability

I do not express hate to them I ignore them as far as possible, for example I often wait when I have priority because I know they shall turn too closely across my path and nearly hit me I guess have accepted that I can do next to nothing to influence them Oh no? That is a queer definition of 'motor...

Re: Presumed liability

Just a thought: hating people is not generally regarded as a useful way of changing their behaviour.

Re: Recumbent trike tyres

Schwalbe Big Apple on mine. They seem to work well. I've been looking at BAs again, for my AZUB Origami. The current versions have Liteskin sidewalls and the Raceguard double nylon breaker. In that respect they are like Trykers and Racers. Where they differ is in the compound which is "Enduran...

Re: Towing a car

Possibly not the right place to ask but... Myself, I would recommend Special Brew - although to be fair, the recipe has changed in recent years and it's not quite the quick trip to LaaLaa Land it used to be... (Do you remember one of Carlsberg's less inspired ad. campaigns for SB - "When you'v...

I don't know. Do some research and you may be able to answer your own question.
