Re: He wasn't in a Wange Wover

My local bank has a sign, "Robbers - please do not bring shotgun into the branch." Like any other such sign, its effect on reducing crime and bovver is zero.

Re: He wasn't in a Wange Wover

There is no power to request removal on this occasion but his actions were causing a breach of the peace and so could have been arrested. Incorrect. A BoP occurs when an act is done, or threatened to be done, which harms a person or in his presence their property, yadda yadda etc. The wearing of a ...

Re: Claiming from driver's insurer.

Engage a solicitor who is both qualified and experienced in the field to guide you - that is the only piece of advice you should accept from armchair amateurs on the subject.

Good luck.

Hell or High Water. An absolute gem that somehow stayed below the radar. It's on Flillum4 tonight at 2250 Zulu if anyone fancies a good movie.

Re: Gatwick Drones

Grayling is an utter tool. The moment he doored a cyclist he utterly and irrevocably undermined any tiny shred of credibility as Transport Secretary. As for Gatwick, they were offered a new RPAS Area Denial system earlier this year, but turned it down saying they "didnt need it", which rou...

Re: Off road history.

Been riding off road since the early 70s on a Chopper, and then a home made tracker bike.My steeds change frequently, but the 2 that never change are my 1996 Alpinestars CroMo rigid, which I love, and my 2011 Giant Trance X, which has had the shock and forks modified by RockShox to suit my weight (I...

Why bother wasting breath on such idiots? It doesnt matter what you say, by engaging with them you're simply validating their stance.

Re: Who is the real enemy - Russia or China?

I'm not sure what all the indignation is about with foreign powers meddling and spying. It's not like MI6 don't exist to gather intelligence on foreign powers and organisations, or like America has never meddled in the democratic processes of another country Yet when someone spies on us, or when som...

Re: HC update - opening motor vehicle doors ...

It doesnt work better in the Netherlands. It may or may not be taught there, depending on the particular instructor, and is not part of their driving test. The origins of the manoeuvre itself are unclear, but its was named the 'Dutch' reach in America in 2011 for no more reason than the Doctor promo...

Re: Countryside opening hours

I was recently stopped by a farmer while walking across a public footpath on his land at about 2300hrs. I wasn't skulking about- i was walking home from a SAR night nav exercise so was in my hi vis regalia with head torch burning brightly. He came out with some guff about it being closed after 7pm. ...

Re: Compensation post cycle accident

Why did your legal rep not insist on receiving the supposedly corrupted CCTV so they could see if their appointed technical expert could correct it?
