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

You two are thinking rational people,there are many that aren't..... I think more of us are than aren't. There is still a widespread decency in people on both sides of this debate, sometimes masked by the antics of the nutters on the fringe. I have spoken to other Leave voters who feel, as I do, th...

Re: Should a surgeon be allowed to "tattoo" his patients?

I read about that. guy was done for assault in the end. I think that a bit extreme. I wonder do artificial bits and pieces put inside people like pacemakers have trade marks on them? Maybe not a bad idea as then if the job turns out to be shoddy you know who to hold responsible? so I feel sorry for...

Re: Should a surgeon be allowed to "tattoo" his patients?

Simple answer- no. several point arise. -If a doctor isn't allowed to tattoo his initials, or anything else of his choice, on your forehead whilst you are anesthetised, then the same applies to your insides. - If it took any time at all, and reports said it would have taken some time, then you were ...

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

Those politicians will try to blame others e.g. sabotage by Remain MP/weak leadership/the EU punishing us/etc. but bottom line is many will not get what motivated them to vote "leave" and so will be unhappy "I didn't get what I wanted and I got a whole load of other bad stuff!" ...

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

That non UK nationals would be deported? No, I don't agree. A substantial number did clearly feel that, as evidenced by the near-immediate local violence and abuse (such as cards saying things like "Polish vermin go home" being attached to their houses) of people who had come here from ac...

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

Without CONTINUED immigration of health workers, the NHS is doomed. So anyone who voted for leave, voted to restrict the numbers of staff available for the NHS in the future. Good luck with that. There has already been a large fall in the number of EU health workers willing to work here - I think it...

Re: Touch screens in motor vehicles

As Hamster says, if you put on the aircon it takes moisture out of the car, so windows don't mist up as they can if you get into a car wet, and helps them clear faster in other circs. In extreme circs (very cold, very damp inside car, or very hot) recirculating the air for a while can help, though i...

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

When I do a deal with someone, shake hands, sign a contract etc, I honour that commitment. ( Me too. But then maybe like me you are in business/self-employed, or maybe work in teaching or another public sector job? MPs make the laws for us, and make the rules for public sector workers like teachers...

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

Are you really find it comforting that David Davis holds the same opinion as yourself? Interestingly it is comments like Davis' that ensure the EU do not trust the UK. From the EU's perspective they negotiated and came to an agreement with the UK. Then within a few days the (supposed) UK chief nego...

Re: Near miss on busy road - plea for good lights!!

A pedestrian doesn't (normally) show a front light, there is no legal requirement to, and cars are still expected not to run them over when the pedestrian has the right of way. I might have agreed with the op if the cyclist was travelling all in black without lights after lighting up time. But they ...

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

We always had free movement before the EU even existed, why should that change? All some of want is the ability to say hang on a minute when too many EU folk arrive looking for jobs and tne ability to send back unemployables claiming benefits whilst clogging up shop doorways. Al We already have the...

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

Obviously it is not politically convenient for anyone to drive home the message that hard Brexit has been found to be unfeasible. But it is a shame that Johnson/Gove etc haven't been man enough to say that and admit that they were wrong all along. The consequence is that there is still political ri...

Re: Hard Times

Timing spreading isn't always all that easy. Too soon and it will have been dispersed by traffic before the snow falls, or the water freezes. Too late, and there will be accidents before it's done, and the gritters may not be able to get through. Having said that, they grit far fewer roads round her...

Re: Minimum Standard of Living

In parts of NE Lancs a terraced house can cost as little as 10 grand, though that would not be in a good area. But high unemployment and low paid jobs mean it still isn't the greatest place to be if you are of working age. And part of the low prices is an oversupply of a specific type of housing - l...
