Re: Dismantled 10-speed chain

It was laborious but the upside is, I got some practice with the chain tool. Dismantled 10 speed chain.png This is the chain cleaning system recommended by She...

Re: Invisible indicators on new cars.

Another av=bsurd trend is "running lights"

On my Nissan, and many others, the running lights are brighter then the sidelights!

As it gets darker, you are legally required to use sidelights as opposed to running lights, yet are turning the brightness lower

Re: The Brexit thread

It's a funny thing but our government wants brexit at any cost. No economic hardship or jobs lost too great. But saving lives in a pandemic? Oh we must weigh up all the costs. There is a common ground.... in both cases, the question is "How much can I and my acolytes and supporters pocket from...

Re: The Brexit thread

Another £76+m on ferries for medicines. Why are they doing something which they know is so bad? Apparently Brexit has cost more in a couple of years than the entire 40+ years of membership. We're now seeing that the whole Sovereignty thing and taking back control was a complete myth. Johnson and hi...

Re: Dawes Karakum OK for Gentle off-road

It handled everything we threw at it from commuting, shopping to touring

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Well, I bet the Guardians in a state! An obese, 74 year old man, has survived due to the private healthcare system in the states. Just think how the poor old man would have suffered under the NHS :wink:. Where would the world be, without the orange guiding light of a trump? Let's get this right.......

Re: Van driver abuse

101 and 999 have specific uses, but sometimes "bending the rules" can be appropriate

If inthis case you genuinely felt that you were in danger then 999 is entirely appropriate. No-one can genuinely question whether you felt threatened atthe time of the call

Re: PROMS-BBC disappoint

Ironically the "National Anthem" isn't. It has never been officially declared so. It is also an example of how songs evolve and develop wiyh changing political and social needs. The tune is probably an old even Elizabethan) song, and the lyrics far more recent. In fact, one of the earliest...

The BBC had the chance to refresh the format of the Proms.They could have scrapped Land of Hope and Rule B and replaced them with some Soviet works like Prokofiev or Shostakovich but have simply lost the singing.What would you have chosen to supplant the jingoist anthems?
