Re: Cheap 11 speed chain - is it ok?

I have one on the bike now, done about 800 miles. Can't tell any difference between it and any other chain I have ever used :D

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

How we are seen by the rest of the EU. Should be a sobering read for supporters of Brexit. A taster from Czech Republic: To see an established democracy like Britain descending into this chaos and irrationality is really disheartening. It’s a very comprehensive defeat for British politics . https:/...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I wonder whether the baying mob is largely the invention of powerful interests that would like us to believe that anything less than [insert what the powerful people want] will result in civil war. I can only speak for myself, but I have absolutely no sense of what the public mood is about Brexit. ...

Re: Simple Question: Is anyone else fed up with having to be PC ?

I think PC is simply a modern term for good manners.

Fed up with good manners? No.

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

They want a 'global Britain', but to reduce foreign aid.

I have long since given up expecting any of them to make any sense. All they are doing is trying to appease the baying mob.

Stupid? No.
Vulnerable? Yes.

Brexit was a heist, a confidence trick. And it worked.

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hi all, Well Kwackers, If we all get more right wing as we grow old, then Mr. Corbyn is certainly an exception to that particular rule! MM He's no exception when it comes to useless politicians driven by nostalgic yearning for some imagined golden age. Plenty of voters it seems wish to return to ho...

well Pride is one of the 7 deadly Sins? Are you talking about Johnson? It's hard to know, as he has the whole set, and some more. Seriously, do you think Tusk is a worse person than Johnson, Farage, Fox, Mogg, Raab, Hannan, Dorries, Leadsome, and co? If so, I'd like to know how you arrived at that....

Hello all, Surely oldjohnw is well out of order? Raise the spectre of a out of date situation in Poland, he must confine himself to the very, very recent past, or else is at risk of being ridiculed for being an old fogey. The stance that Mr. Varadkar is taking is a direct continuation of the de Val...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Is that enough of an answer for you? IGICB (But not for much longer) MM Frankly, no. It's nebulous, to use a recent term. It's dependent on somebody else understanding what you want and acting on it. The EU continually evolves. It's not going to declare itself in need of revolution. Maybe you knew ...

Hi mjr, You should bear in mind the simple fact that the UK population played no part in the treachery that Major & That Bloody Woman committed!!! Only the electorate of Finchley actually voted for the "Milk Snatcher". Major was so good with figures he couldn't even pass the test to b...
