Re: Pictures of your bike(s)

Was just reading about the superiority of the Kingpin compared to the raleigh 20 shopper. Nice bike. Do you have a link/references? Not sure which one it was but here are some links https://raleightwenty.webs.com/thedaweskingpin.htm https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=37410 https:/...

Re: The tories priorities?

I read the posts, which is why I typed, it's no coincidence at all that 20 years later she has decided to tell the world about it for maximum effect. There is some truth in the fact that a victim will hold back from "telling the world" until she (or sometimes, he) thinks the complaint is ...

Re: The tories priorities?

Middle aged male, upper class, white, hetrosexual and right wing - so yes Boris must be guilty by default. You're the one doing the stereotyping here - not anyone else. As it happens, I remember a guy at Oxford (his name, oddly enough, was Guy) who would have ticked all those boxes - except the &qu...

Of course it's no coincidence at all that 20 years later she has decided to tell the world about it for maximum effect.

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

New Aspect Raised on TV last night: Interesting report on TV last night (C4 news 19 Sept 19) about Food Banks and the need for stockpiling. Foodbanks clearly don't have the capability to stockpile in the same way as Supermarkets. But it seems the Government have ignored them and when they [Governme...

Swinson is just the latest incarnation of Parliament versus the people. Even Caroline la la land Lucas thinks Swinson is arrogant.

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

Just wait for the hysteria when the supporters of brexit learn that "claiming back our borders" means that we have increased responsibilities for immigration, and the point for reviewing applications is in the UK, not in France! Brexit may actually be MORE illegal immigrants in the UK So ...

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

The smug arrogant LIb Dems have played right into the hands of Cummings by proclaiming that democracy can be cancelled. They are so naive and puffed up with dubious morality that they can't even imagine that their Brexit nightmare will be like tea and cake with Mary Poppins, compared to the Freddy ...

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

The Fantasy that is the Liberal-Dems Is there any point replying to this gibberish when you won't reply to questions? The Liberal Democrats are one of the few parties not offering a unicorn-pooping-rainbows Brexit, unlike the Conservatives, Labour, BxP and probably others. I agree that simply revok...

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

Only someone who does not believe in democracy could describe it as a tyranny of the majority. Perhaps we should prefer the tyranny of the minority who are forever proclaiming their rightness/excellence thinly veiled as a patronsising superiority complex that many remainers exhibit.

The only newspaper I read is the Guardian, when I manage to steal it from a person at work. I like the sports section the best. The political/comedy pages can be amusing. Regarding book views by "textpert experts", I much prefer to physically hold a book and browse through it for 10 minut...

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

The Victorians spawned the CTC and were at the dawn of modern cycling. The postmodernistic view of them is pathetic and hypocritical, unlike the Victorians who were only part-time hypocrites.. They were the gateway to real liberalism and not the intolerant grubby champagne marxism that passes for it...

WHich translates as didn't bend over and let Brexiters force their way through - that was very naughty Well actually he did bend over many times to the remainers, though I doubt he was forced...blah blah very naughty. Again translates as did not do what YOU wanted..... Which translates as proof tha...
