Re: Advice for first e-bike

A pal of mine dumped his front wheel kit conversion because the torque made steering really dangerous and difficult. Then he bought a Cube bike with a Bosch drive and never looked back because the bike was built around the drive and no doubt the design was refined over many years. Cheap conversions ...

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

But I'm aware of you claiming remainers hate the UK,which is clearly an outright lie posted only to inflame an already hotly contested discussion. Some who live abroad self evidently from their statements here do, and even some who actually live here which I cannot understand? I never claimed all. ...

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

Democracy is just a word... I believe most people are aware of exactly what it means and they have been saying so whether they voted leave or in many cases remain. This isnt about semantics its about what the majority of those who could be bothered to vote wanted.

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

The Liberals are a tiny minority they cannot command any sort of majority. Their stance is to reject the majority view expressed in the peoples referendum which was the ultimate expression of Democracy. I believe they will really suffer at the ballot box. Its another Clegg moment, a repositry of mal...

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

Have a long serious national debate, come up with various alternatives and then have a peoples vote on what system to adopt. Try and reach a consensus. It shouldnt involve parliament as such but political parties should be able to participate if they so wish. Could be an elimination contest, transf...

And how will we do that; give me one thought through example ? John. Reform our parliamentary system for a start. Composition, boundaries, elected second chamber, smaller.

Re: Cycling UK : Proposal for World Domination

There is scope for a worldwide organisation for cycle tourists, it would be a great point of contact when touring abroad. But Cycling UK abandoned its touring remit when it converted a charity. The thought of it having a worldwide remit fills me with horror.

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

We entered the Common Market because of a confirmatory Referendum vote open to everyone because it was such an important thing to do. Its fitting that there was a Referendum on whether we should stay when it was evident that the EU has transmogrified itself into something unrecognisable and incompat...

Re: Harmful 'phone calls

My approach has always to put on a false Indian accent and ask them for their order. This usually makes them put the phone down pronto. It was the same when I was working, when they rang asking to speak to the the Managing Director. We always said thats Mr Singh and he is in the kitchen because we h...
