Re: Is anyone moving?

Could one hedge ones bets by dwelling in Berwick-upon-Tweed? You ever been there? I stayed at the YHA for a few days. Nice YHA . Nice walk around the town walls. Nice short walk along the river. Thats about it. To get out of the place you have a very long up hill ride to the south or along a misera...

Re: wiring to rear lamp

Yes breaking by flexing is the issue. I have a number of loose windings around the head tube before it goes down to the forks or along the top tube. I use cable ties or velcro strips to secure them along the tubes. I dont think sticky tape is any good as after a time the stickness turns into a goo a...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

an interesting article why labour has failed. The claim is it is not Corbyns fault, the causes go back decades. A damning indictment of Blair and New Labour & David Miliband just as much as anything today. In the 2017 election I wrote that a party that grew out of social institutions needed to t...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I doubt it. The counters have enough to do ......... counting. To record what is written on the papers is too much to do in such a short time. I do have a question though. The polling cards are known to the staff in the polling centre. You are given a number which is recorded. Therefore, the pollin...

So we have seen two versions of the Labour Party in recent years?

Tony Blairs Middle Class version
Jeremy Corbyns Metropolitan Intellectual Socialists?

What now?

Re: Goodbye Old England - It's Time We Were Gone

Hmmm..the other predictions didnt go too well, although mine did :? If the Scots want independence they should have it, they are a distict talented and proud nation with their own culture. Lets hope that one day we see a United Ireland too. When it comes to it I think the pragmatic Scots will decid...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

So that's what Greta looks like. I've heard her, read about her, and followed her story, but never seen what she looks like ........... not that I was interested what she looks like. Still don't understand the joke though. She has a Joan of Ark syndrome ? That didnt go down well with the previous o...
