Re: Go Outdoors

I always get pricing issues at GO. First started with a pair of new model Salomon shoes. £125 pretty much everywhere. I happened to find what must have been a mispriced online retailer selling it and they price matched. But nothing wrong there but they gave me an extra 10% off, only they calculated ...

Re: Anyone living in new lock down areas?

tier.JPG We're moving from North Lancashire to South Cumbria. Final decision made when LCC recommended all schools not to open up to the years government wanted to open before the end of the school year. Over the border the schools were already almost fully open before the end of term because CCC b...

Re: Giving DOB to online retailers ...

Didn't want to further extend the Spa thread! Do give your DOB - I don't except to banks etc. Never to a retailer, or facebook or anywhere else. I just give a randomly-made-up false DOB. SO I keep getting automated "Happy Birthday" emails! I won't let it stop me from shopping online. No, ...

Re: Breaking International Law

Then the short answer must be that it does because it has happened in democratic eu countries in the past. If it didn't then it wouldn't have happened so widely. Of course my long answer posed a few ideas on top of that. about nations in the EU breaking their own, negotiated rules and laws. Afterall...

Re: Winklebury Cycles, Basingstoke, evicted

Btw Chrysotile , actinolite, tremolite, amosite, etc in their raw form I think are nice looking minerals. Something about the fibrous nature I think make them more interesting than other minerals you see. Interesting structure I guess.

Am I plain weird?

Re: Winklebury Cycles, Basingstoke, evicted

Do you know the proportion of WHO fibres are in a typical, mineral woo insulated loft? In case you didn't know they're the fine fibres capable of getting far enough into your respiratory system to be a probable carcinogen. That's only one category below asbestos in severity. It is only there because...

Re: Breaking International Law

The above is nothing more than a long lament from those that have serious issues with democracy. That's interesting: more, please. If it's about the recent General Election can I ask if you think that winning entitles the Government to do anything it likes? Thanks Jonathan Unfortunately the reality...

Re: Breaking International Law

Radical idea, what if there was a new agreement to override and improve on the GFA in the process making it work in the existing reality not the reality when it was originally agreed? Just bouncing ideas around. As an aside of relevance. Does anyone know when the last EU treaty was signed compared t...

Re: Winklebury Cycles, Basingstoke, evicted

Sorry for the long post. I didn't even say what I meant to say. There's no way if knowing the truth in article like those from clickbait local rags. Don't you just hate local rags and their websites that when you get to the page and find it's mostly adverts and the text repeats itself to pad things ...

Re: Winklebury Cycles, Basingstoke, evicted

It does depend on what form the asbestos is in. The issue is risk of fibre release but a lot of instances of asbestos is in encapsulated form which isn't necessarily that much of a hazard. For example I've known asbestos found in council houses (there are still some, not all housing associations) du...

Re: Anyone living in new lock down areas?

Why put evidence in quotation marks? Evidence-based methods for this sort of stuff are pretty mature. Jonathan Reference to kids getting colds in autumn term being the likely origin.of schools being bug vectors. when that so called evidence backing that theory up is probably more likely because it'...

It's not infantilism because infants can tell he's a grade 1 lnob heed. Mine did early on. He's spotted a trend with Corbyn and boris included. Basically politicians at the top are rubbish! Can't fault him for that accurate assessment.

Re: Lights on segregated cycle path legally required?

...plus an awful lot of roadside houses have white lights on their fronts or gates... Kinda clutching at examples of "white lights near roads" there, aren't you? But I don't think they should be allowed, as it happens. And if I ruled the world planning legislation wouldn't permit them, al...

Re: Lights on segregated cycle path legally required?

Can I just say that front lights of the blinding kind when used such that they directly shine into oncoming car driver's eyes are a serious hazard. From experience I was driving along a road I knew well when I saw two cyclists facing towards me on the side of the road they were on. One was working o...
