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

I read about some labour candidates for last ge. Some right horrors. Antisemitic comments, misogyny, jailed for insider trading, posting images of May with a gun to her head, tweets about shooting political rivals, etc. Fortunately with labour's performance most never got in.

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

If running a business was the main criteria for success as a national leader, Donald Trump would be great. He isn't. Hasn't he gone bust four times and been bailed out by his dad? I believe it stings him that "Little Mike" Bloomberg is much richer than him! There was a suggestion that if ...

Re: Ever ready bike light

The rear was fitted with a 3 LED replacement bulb, which was fine. The front was. a high power LED, but two issues. Heat and battery life. The heat can distort the plastic reflector, and battery life is less than an hour Thanks for that. I’m going to try something similar. We’ll see about the batte...

Re: Ever ready bike light

I have an old Major Nichols bike and it occurred to me an Ever Ready bike light would fit brilliantly on it. Of course I'm old enough to have ridden with Ever Not Ready lights and they were pretty poor to compare with today's lights. So then I formed the mad plan to fit a modern light inside the ol...

Re: helmets from Why wear black?

About 52.4 million adults in the UK in 2018. So a little rounding down thats 52 million people divided by 32 million cars. ( pun intended....) Which is about 62% which feels more right to me than 81%. And as others have said cost is a factor for both the very young, and the unemployed and low paid....

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

Has anyone actually seen Boris lately?

He seems to be absent whenever anything happens.

Has Cummings completed his coup?
Is Boris now a prisoner in 10 Downing Street, only to be wheeled out as Cummings" puppet when it needed to back up an idea or policy

We should be told?

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

Never my intention, the posts were meant to be informative Whoa whoa! Not accusing you mate! I looked up in my Fowler (1966 vintage) and it says the same as Mike Sales's copy. But I suppose I was being a bit jocular on purpose (how can one be otherwise, when referring to CC and his posts? Sorry CC!...
