Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hi, Some are just intent on winding up the spring until it breaks. Thanks for that. It's Saturday, so it's "wind the clocks up" day. I'd totally forgotten what day it was! :D Back in a tick. My tick-tock has gone for the moment. I decided to sort out all my clocks. So the big dong has been...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hi, if you use terms like "far left" and "far right" when what you mean is "left" and "right" you end up with nothing left when you encounter genuine "far left" and "far right". I get that you don't like the Tories, and that they are to the...

Where's the common sense in PWA's answer?

Common sense and is that he is a moderate not extreme.
He's making an attempt to bring commonsense back to the posts.

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

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

Hi, But SNP is without doubt a big player, the biggest currently. So it's highly likely it would be an SNP first minister despite your kind if AV style of PR. First minister and government is highly likely to be SNP. If independence is won it'll likely result in a bounce of popularity for the SNP. F...

Hi, Is there a board game I can purchase? Then I can play and have several attempts to win, sounds easier than all that effort :) I will be making an attempt in 2020, fit or not, I will accept where I will be and be satisfied with just doing it.

Hi,
What was the outcome of your scan?

Re: what bottle cage for underside of down tube on a world tour?
