Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

but the statements that Boris is a Trump-clone who would sell all our 8year-olds to pay for his champagne and mistresses are a little OTT. Just IMHO of course! No, obviously that would be illegal. I enjoyed BoJo's clowning before he tried to be something he obviously isn't. There's a list of stuff ...

Re: BBC have stopped iplayer

I care! I don't have anything to hide, but I've nothing to show them either. Besides, I paid for my devices. I don't expect them to extract more value from the transaction so they can send me advertising. You paid for the device - so what? Did you pay for the content? If you're not paying directly ...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

So more of the same or a big step into the unknown with a leader the quality and politics of Corbyn. Which cliff edge do you want Britain to jump off? Quality? Depends what you mean by quality. I'm bored with reading stuff about him that I can't find (despite looking) any basis in fact for. Why do ...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

I think we've all got what we deserve. Righties have boris representing them and lefties have Corbyn (supported by McDonnell and Mccluskey). I'm not sure who has come out best with those two leaders, if anyone. I only know being centrist in politics I'm certainly a loser in British politics right n...

Re: BBC have stopped iplayer

I went round to a friend's house the other day. Her mammoth TV was switched on, but just the menu. It started randomly playing adverts. I thought that was the default behaviour on many of them. Can't say I've ever noticed but then I don't sit in menus. If I turn my TV on its because I want to watch...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

Imagine having Corbyn the Communist and his lefty Communist friends in power? It doesn’t bear thinking about. Have a good day, I said what I wanted to say. :lol: Enjoy BoJo I'm sure he'll do what's best for your "poor health" - you have got private health insurance hopefully? If not proba...

Re: BBC have stopped iplayer

Smart TVs are dreadful and creepy. When our current TV dies, it won't be replaced by a smart TV; if none of the manufacturers produce a straightforward TV we'll have no tv. Who wants to buy a device only to find you get bombarded with adverts? What adverts? Don't get any adverts on mine (unless I w...

Re: Road Legal Mid drive kit

As a casual cyclist, I don't want to share facilities with a vehicle that could reach 45km/h, powered or unpowered. But then, a vehicle of that turn of speed can't mix it up with cars. I would feel much safer on a 650cc moped than a 50cc one going up hills. Everything that moves is powered, it's ju...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

I like Coldplay.
Like, not love. Some good songs, some crap.

Music snobbery is the worst sort imo.

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Firstly "get Brexit done" is just a slogan and a pretty meaningless one at that. Anyone that has read anything serious about it in the last few years surely knows that? Reading between the lines on the various social media sites I'd suggest the majority of brexitears think differently. Th...

what do people make of the kid with no bed picture to-do? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50717606 I sympathise with Boris as he was being setup? It seems thats what "journalists" do these days? The photo was genuine and for once Boris was in his reaction to it! :evil: The bots a...

Re: FILUMS ..to see.

YouTube is a gold mine for terrible 1950/60's Sci-Fi. On Saturday I watched "The First Spaceship on Venus" which was truly awful but compelling viewing, followed by "The Giant Behemoth" a film I'd seen as a child and could still remember scenes from as I watched it. (I'm trying t...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

Principles should not be up for sale. Shouldn't be no. But in my experience the only people who think they wont sell their principles claim so because nobody has offered to buy them. Think about it for a minute. You might think you don't want the money, but you could give some to your loved ones; k...

Re: eBikes: I have some questions

Personally not even that old or grizzled yet looking into an ebike for a new commute which will be a 30 mile round trip instead of buying a car. Just as much we need to get away from the stereotype that ebikes dont mean zero effort we should also get away from the idea they are just for the elderly...
