Re: Extinction Rebellion

The theatrical parts of the protests are carefully designed and executed. Making them more spectacular and notable.

I would guess that there are many volunteers willing to lend their artistic and professional experience to these events.

Re: Savage machines

The last one is called a "forwarder". In normal use it uses its crane to load & off-load logs from its trailer. In that photo the trailer is filled with its own chain-tracks. Despite the wide tyres - for low surface pressure - the forwarders make a right mess of the ground. Trying to s...

Re: Woman's fight for A505 safety work

NOTE : this is a generic rant with no specific link to the sad loss of life in the specific case of this topic. How about lowering the speed limit ( and enforcing it ) ?

Re: Cycling UK : Proposal for international expansion

Titles : Your clickbait titles don't fool anyone. Some might find them off-putting / annoying. Presentation : At the very least use appropriate spacing in your text. Nobody is going to read a huge block of endless sentences. There is an EDIT button, which will permit you to correct any of your previ...
