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

And, by the way, I would treat them with the greatest respect, would hope to learn something from them and expect others to do the same. News Flash. This just in... The Referendum was in 2016. It's gone. What is the point in ...

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

I'll ask again,though without much hope of an answer. Then I won't disappoint you :wink: How I felt and what my motives were on that day back in 2016 when I stood in the polling booth considering a very simple referendum question will remain personal to me - apart from being open about where my 'X'...

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

You've gotta love brexit for showing folk up for what they really are. Yep. And on both sides of the divide. They've not murdered anyone yet,or threatened murdering MP's or their children who support remain! TBH,I've yet to come across a remain supporter who spout anywhere near the kind of ridiculu...

All I have to do is think, "How did the Govt want their MPs to vote?" And, lo, my MP did that! (Liam bl00dy Fox :twisted: )


And I feel the same about Stephen bl00dy Kinnock :evil:

What are you most looking forward to when we leave?



1. A General Election.

2. Seeing Laura Kuenssberg take a well-deserved holiday.

3. Seeing wee Jimmie Krankie (aka Nicola Sturgeon) go home tae think again.

Re: Shimano upgrade gears only - which bits?

New Sora (3000) is really good kit - I have it on one of my bikes and might move it onto another frameset soon. I just wish Shimano would go the extra mile and give it an aluminium inner ring and, perhaps, a 52/36 option. For a commuter machine, I'd stick with it.
