Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

You will need to point that one out, the only comment I recollect (or comes up on search) on this thread about tourism was: However I stand to be corrected if there is a post I have missed, or that big events do not profit local enterprise and tourism ..... If only all spongers were so profitable! ...

Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

As you wish............ So I assume that your comments about the Royals being a highly profitable tourist attraction were irony as well. Of all you've said on this thread I now have no idea what is irony and what is your assertion. Ian You will need to point that one out, the only comment I recolle...

Re: Opinions on mainstream touring bikes?

..... the Tour de Fer...... I was shocked at how expensive the Tour de Fer is. I don't appreciate the spec (or rather the costs of the parts used) but seemed expensive compared to e.g. LHT or Disk Trucker. But I am interested in any comments as to the (touring) merits of the Tour de Fer vs LHT or D...

Re: Record attempt scheduled

still need support crew Plus official travelling observers and timekeepers and submitting a new schedule and dates to the RRA. Schedule and dates are needed so that spot observers can be arranged along the route. It is not as simple as turn up at LE with a mate in a van, start pocket watch, arrive ...

Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

I agree fully, I neither find the wearing of uniform a claim of being better, sinister or inappropriate for weddings The post was in reply to the claims: The post stated off with unacceptable slurs, proceeded to ridicule two front line tours in Afghanistan and then made assumptions about why people...

Re: Record attempt scheduled

(Never having done either direction) but I'd imagine that to repeat the attempt would not be a massive issue. Planning done, maybe a couple of days off work (compare that to Steven Abraham's effort). Not suggesting it's trivial (still need support crew, etc.) but it's not like vast budgets needed re...

Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

Because getting married in Uniform is sinister snd stinks of stinks of "we are your betters" By stating so clearly they are "our betters" they are oppressive. I completely disagree. In what way are those firemen presenting themselves as "our betters". This is totally l...

Re: Diabetes NHS cost £10Billion, why no backing for cycling

(I'm not into "diets" so my comment on the quoted report might be mis-interpreted through lack of understanding but) some time ago the fasting diet thing seemed to become popular after TV presented made documentary extolling the health benefits (and it was free, no courses, no books to buy...
