Re: Pavement cycling in Grantham

Only with respect to their own departments purview. The police and courts fall under MoJ.

Re: Who's to blame lorry or cyclist

If they'd selected the correct lane at the traffic lights they wouldn't have to be determined/brave/suicidal. It was their choice.

Re: Enforcing mobile phones legislation

Being taser'd isn't nice, but 5 seconds and its over. Being sprayed is much worse, agony for 45-60 minutes, then you have a wash and it activates all over again.

Re: Enforcing mobile phones legislation

How about a device that senses electromagnetic emissions and tasers the driver? Couple that with a tiny explosive charge in the phone that activates and destroys it if used in a car. The government should just do what the majority of law abiding folk want, and make it a banning offence. No argument,...

Re: Pavement cycling in Grantham

Two points. Firstly ever since FPNs were introduced there has been the "Boateng advice" where Paul Boateng, the transport spokesman at the time advised that the whole point was dangerous or inconsiderate cycling... not cyclists using a pavement in a reasonable manner because the road was ...

Re: Hillsborough

Did you enlist into Sandhurst? No, that's not how it goes. I have two friends who went through Sandhurst, one a Captain, one a Major. The Captain has left and is middle management for a firm, doing ok bit not queuing up to buy a private jet either. The Major is still in, and is age-in-grade. Sandhu...

Re: House for sale close to bus stop main selling point

Some new build houses near us with garages 10" narrower than standard. Those with small cars can drive them in, but cant open the door.

They end up at the kerb side littering the street instead.

Re: House for sale close to bus stop main selling point

Its "getting a lot of interest", eh?

That's a bit different to " we've been given some actual money for it "

Re: Line up to pelt Thatcher with rotten vegetables?

I don't have time for most politicians if I'm honest, and as I get older and as the political landscape progresses I've even less patience with the whole lot of them. Mrs Thatcher did some good, important things, and also made some dreadful miscalculations. In that regard she is no better or worse t...

Re: Who's to blame lorry or cyclist

Using left turn lanes to go in directions other than left seems to be what some people in London do, but that doesn't make it right, sensible or clever. There's a longer version of this clips available form other sources, and the rider can be see squeezing up the inside of cars as the road narrows, ...

Re: Line up to pelt Thatcher with rotten vegetables?

There are lots of people I don't like who weren't necessarily bad people, and who probably acted as they genuinely though was best for themselves, their loved ones, even their country, and I don't line up to chuck stuff at their statues etc. I'm cool with the far left not liking people and having op...

No one seemed to use it until Theresa May did, before she went on to give us the strong and stable government she promised! :lol:
