Re: Chroming a frame

No idea of the cost these days, but having had one there are drawbacks. It does add a few pounds in weight for instance and again, in time, I found that where the mudguard fastened beneath the seat-stays, it was vulnerable to salt and muck as it breached the chrome. I really don't think I would have...

Re: Should the UK ( World ) seek compensation from China for the damage it's citizens have done?

and where do China and India send their wares to? Britain where we have closed down 75% of our manufacturing capability over the last 40 years. Britain where we can claim to be more environmentally friendly because we're producing less pollution than er China and India, because they're producing th...

Re: Alex Salmond - court case concluded

Cock-up vs professional malpractice is an interesting debate I think. In the Salmond case...given there are texts and the creation of an Instagram account in order to co-ordinate the accusations by the accusers against the defendant.......a cock-up seems a wee bit unlikely. I was talking about Mini...

Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

I'm determined to keep up what little fitness I have left and yesterday did a whole twenty minutes on my exercise bike. It was really hard....but my computer registered 132 miles when I was finished. While this might seem a wee bit high....keep in mind that the thing is brand new so it's unlikely to...

Re: Induction hobs - your experience(If you have one!)

<SNIP> It is possible to buy an induction plate that can allow you to use your present equipment but in my case, I preferred to buy proper stuff made for induction hobs. <SNIP> I've got a 'Which' magazine with induction hob tests, the best buy for induction plates is a "Paderno World Cuisine A...

Re: Induction hobs - your experience(If you have one!)

I love mine which is only a two hob one and works from a 13amp socket, perfect.. as I live alone in a small bedsit type flat. I also have a combi microwave and together they meet all of my needs. The type of material used in cooking pots/pans is vital as induction needs sufficient ferrous material t...

For those who are at all interested in learning the facts about the case (damn few it seems), I recommend this piece from Craig Murray, a former British Ambassador who has monitored the Salmond case. https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2020/03/jaccuse-2/ [b]Murray has an agenda, as much as any ...

Re: Alex Salmond - court case concluded

Hi, Normally one would worry about politicians having fingers in too many pies, sometimes not their own! But with the former First Minister folk seem to be very concerned over possible fingers in other folks private parts, not that I'm casting stones :roll: :wink: . He doesn't seem to be the type y...

Re: Alex Salmond - court case concluded

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-52078493 if what you say is true then Scottish Justice is rotten to the core, but maybe not for the reasons you give ( compare with Cyprus was it and that rape victim?)? It doesnt surprize me about Salmonds intentions. But your slant is unbelievable. You would...

Re: Alex Salmond Charged with Attempted Rape

......................................... <snip> Of course that one not proven verdict still allows his opponents and everyone else to cast doubt on Salmon's other not guilty offences. He did it in one allegation (but the prosecution couldn't prove beyond reasonable doubt) so it's likely be done it...
