Re: BMW driver walks free from court after deliberately running over cyclist

He'll be lucky to get insurance in the future looking at his record. But then again he might not bother, just drive anyway.

I imagine it is the collection issue. It does limit the market.

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

yes exactly what they have done I relish the thought of the EU having to break the GFA and impose a hard border that Eire have to police - its what Eire deserves - they should have known better. The EU dont want a sensible approach only one that satisfies their rules and <expletive deleted> the Bri...

Re: Bike and cyclist transfer from Saint-Malo to Nantes

I'd be tempted to hire one in Nantes. You can drop it off when you have finished at a few cities along the Loire.

They are indeed, ill prepared but Business is not. Business will cope with a No Deal. I'm sure there will be hiccups, but I'm confident we will manage... ... It is illogical for the EU to give us a good deal. that would be a reward for leaving. Why should we expect that? What message would that sen...

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

The health and wellbeing of so many people has rather more at stake than a few saddles or wheels. That's why H&H discussions get heated and half of them shunted into a ghetto. And the steam is really because people keep misrepresenting the views of others, like talking about a bus when banners ...

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

Plus you haven't answered the Liar question or why the vote was unfair. IYO of course. Not opinion. The ruling of the final legal arbiter. Several cases outstanding, as well. The law is not just a matter of opinion. Oh yes. The remain campaign is still under investigation for misuse of funds I beli...

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

No. It's still hysterical media nonsense and clickbait IMO. The use of the word expert is bandied about too much these days. . The media is social media. In other words, these are the personal accounts of the experts. You may choose to dismiss all expert opinion. I won't. That doesn't mean uncritic...

No. It's still hysterical media nonsense and clickbait IMO. The use of the word expert is bandied about too much these days. Experts? Like our Canadian friend in the BOE who has been consistently wrong. Or the CBI who take funding from the EU. Show me an independent expert from any side. Good luck w...

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

All this "crash" talk is media hype and scare tactics. We are just leaving, no crashing. That's all. I'm surprised people on here are influenced or repeat such dramatic nonsense. Then again, maybe not. :) There is no "just leaving" if we leave without agreement. "Crashing o...

Re: The Reference Diet

I think almost all of us in the western world eat too much. I also think portion control is more important than the actual protein carb mix or type of food. I always feel well when I'm pretty hungry. I very rarely feel full and always can manage a bit more but never do. I dream about food for some r...
