Re: Slowing motor traffic - press the button!

.. I think it would improve the forum if the software prevented the same user making consecutive posts, or at least a series of consecutive posts. If there's something to add, then it's easy enough to edit the last post to make an addendum .. One may edit the last post but then the thread does not ...

Re: Obituaries miscellaneous, Paul Flynn..

He was pretty sick at the end, I think he should have retired at the last election, MPs should retire like normal people so youngsters can take over. Are there other professions where many people work at 80+? What is the house of Lords for? Old MPs! 'He who has many enemies, has many friends' applie...
