Re: Toblerone

I'm afraid I may have become a bit more cynical than usual about the substance - since I finished reading, a few weeks ago, the best-selling novel Atonement , by Ian McEwan (highly recommended). For those not familiar with the story, I should explain that one of the characters is a 'chocolate' tyco...

Re: Toblerone

Just like many things today; the marketing management have control and have zero interest in the customer. The net result of this is endless attempts to cut the cost of the product to manufacture and to put the price up to the buyer. I guess here there was a backlash? I hope a massive increase in t...

They've been that for a while now.

Grateful for the clarification, it's sometimes difficult to keep up with PX's price changes, so often do they happen.

Of course it is, the same thing only bigger. I see it now.

Well apart from the democracy bit. Well, and the fact it simply isn't :lol:

A justification too far, I would suggest.

"Not saying that the outcomes are right or wrong, but he definitely deserves credit for that." Credit for a bad outcome? Like saying Mussolini was a fine chap....he made he trains run on time. Not in my book. Stalin made hard decisions that were totally delivered (he decided for example t...

I've heard plenty of good things about Gove's contributions so hold a diametrically opposite view to you, despite he not being of a political persuasion I am comfortable with.

He's someone in government who can actually make things happen, unlike many (most?). Not saying that the outcomes are right or wrong, but he definitely deserves credit for that.

Re: Deterring mobile phone use

What point do you think you were making, if it wasn't that UK law requires people to aim to drive at or near the limit at some times? (which it doesn't) Not that one, thanks. 3C understood the point being made, clearly. By citing a different law applying to middle lane hogging which wasn't at all w...

Re: Hoy vs Boardman

Echoes my view. Nice things, and what I most enjoy is the feeling of, for want of a better word, precision not afforded by my other brakes. I sense that for me much of this comes from the absence of vibration associated with rim braking on ever-so-slightly out of round wheels.

This is to misrepresent the point I was making to make a point of your own choosing. But you know that, too. The entire post was: Then do consider, under UK law (no idea about Germany) whether you are making sufficient progress. But we're already in Groundhog territory now. What point do you think ...

Re: Deterring mobile phone use

I am taking about a vehicle travelling at a speed such that it becomes a hazard in that context equally as much as driving in excess of the prevailing limit. It was advice I was given as a learner driver, and is still the advice now, seemingly https://www.theorytestadvice.co.uk/driving-test/marking...
