Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

My optometrist thinks my eyes will probably improve.
Unfortunately, my pessometrist thinks they’ll get worse.

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

My dog kept chasing people riding a bike.

It got so bad that I had to take the bike off him.

Re: Recommended camera for helmet mounting?

I would think a bike mounted camera is subjected to more road vibrations which reduce picture resolution quality, and a helmet cam to be far more vibration isolated which should record better resolution (?) A helmet cam has the advantage of continued recording of aftermath events / confrontation wit...

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

Don't worry about Post-Brexit starvation rations; the new Brexit world order of Little Britain are experts at oversea trade deals and sure to strike up a multi billion £ order with Japan's whaling industry, and they'll be only too happy to keep us well stuffed with whale meat pies and blubber puddin...

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

So we have: 1. Suck it up, hold yer nose and sign the deal. Or 2. Go No Deal. Or 3. er, well, you know, hmmm, tricky. Or, being more sensible: Or 4. We don't want No Deal, that's Doomsday, but nor do we want your deal, so we'll see what we do want and come back to you soonest EU. So 5a. We come bac...

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

A General Election would be a completely useless waste of time right now, both front benches of Con & Lab want their own unachievable Brexits. Both leaderships would be tempted to field candidates who support Brexit - crafty selected for brown nose duty. The electorate wouldn't know any better, ...

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

Can anyone come up with a combination of choices for a referendum question that will pass through parliament? Same as the 2016 one, REMAIN or LEAVE The likelihood of a Remain win justifies keeping the Leave choice as a plain simple [ out vote ] to encompass all Heinz 57 varieties of Brexit. [modera...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

In a recent job interview I was asked how i would perform under pressure?

I thought for a moment and said that i didn’t know all the words to that one, but I could have a good bash at Bohemian Rhapsody.

Re: Tree ID

I'm not convinced it's horse chestnut but looking at the unidentified tree picture foliage, it's difficult to tell with the limited resolution of the photo, but it does suggest the lighter colours among the leaves maybe conker flowers, albeit not reached full season maturity (?) I agree with earlier...

Re: The gang of how many?

We'll find out the truth of that at the next election, anyone care to predict how many will keep their seats? Early days yet, i think it depends how many other MPs quit their party to join the Independent Group. And then the IG need to form a proper political party, and assumably with a name; "...

This was quoted by Chuka Umunna who said far too many of us feel the need to do.

Apparently it's a symptom of our broken political system :(
