Re: Is Trump Mad?

He's rattled, the giant blimp has annoyed him.
Plus slagging off other countries moves the spotlight from his own problems whilst appealing to the nationalism he's been stoking amongst his fellow countrymen.

Turns out wherever you look, 50% of people are more stupid than average.
Who'd have thought?

Re: eBike Conversions - Go on, show us yours!

I had a quick look inside my Bafang mid drive at about 10,000 miles because I'd read about them being badly greased but it was floating in the stuff. It's up to 20,000 or so now and I should probably take it off and strip it but it's working just fine with no untoward noises although slightly more '...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

........................................................ The best thing that can come of it in my opinion is the disintegration of the two main parties. But what'll replace them? Look at the right wing parties so far, from Hitler to the gang that murdered Jo Cox. I'm not opposed to your views kwack...

Re: 'Jokes' about murder/violence

Not tolerated? A few decades ago 'jokes' were made that would not be tolerated now, doubtless some 'comedians' got into trouble "Less tolerated" might be a better phrase. As I said up thread, she should have kept it back for her stage show, ime of such shows almost anything goes - althoug...

I think such 'jokes' should be prohibited by law just like racist jokes are
Anyone agree?

AFAIK racist jokes aren't illegal.

The really worrying thing is ..... there is probably a huge number of people desperately hoping that leaving will be a massive disaster ... just so they can say "told you so" ..... and who will be eaten up with anger and angst if its a success ..... which is sad .. :( Part of "projec...

Re: Jokes about murder.

Jo Brand to face no action over acid joke, police say https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-48640411 (I see the BBC has this in the entertainment/arts section of its website) Colour me unsurprised. I'm no Brand fan but you'd need to have a fairly big axe to grind to think it was actually an...

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

Wouldn't it be better if the UK kept ex-ministers on the payroll for a while to discourage them from perverting our democracy like that? Perhaps we should just treat each replacement as a coup. When they get removed they're taken away and shot. Problem solved. No payoff, no danger of subverting dem...
