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

To continue on the bike analogy, in my opinion the EU is a poor quality bike that has never fitted us and is long overdue for the scrap heap. You would need to quantify that statement for it to mean anything. Beware though Brexit arguments so far haven't stood up to scrutiny,that said I'm always wi...

Re: Things that make you disproportionately happy.

Cugel I admire your traditional(English,Chinese and Japanese)techniques of working and bow to your devotion to a handtool approach. It makes me disproportionately happy to see such techniques still alive and well :) PS, your plane collection is disgraceful and beautifully high end that only a true c...

Re: Things that make you disproportionately happy.

The way Wheateaters fly from fence post to fence post in front of me when I riding in the summer. Seeing Kingfishers on the L&L where it once was polluted. Looking down and seeing the cranks going round Watching Swifts and Swallows on the wing against a blue sky Bull rushes Watching Chubb swimmi...

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

Maybe the anaolgy is more like being offered a bike, billed as top notch & ensuring stunning performance (but as yet unseen) free of charge. Not only that you've been told there is a cashback offer that you will also benefit from. Once you've signed up there are worrying reports that the bike i...

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

If you consider how much CEOs of large, international firms make, and the severance packages they get (often millions, even if the company is failing when they leave), or a British PM (iirc £153,000 per annum, plus a residence and expenses), it doesn't seem entirely unreasonable to me. You'd have t...

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

Almost makes me into a Brexit-eer :twisted: Lots of things wrong with the EU. Agreed Whatever trade deal we hammer out with them though will involve the flow of cash to them for the privilege. From the outside we'll have no say on what they spend it on so its just tough Not forgetting that 44% of o...

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

Hi, Consider this analogy:- You have a bike that you ride everyday and it does the job though you are aware of some faults with it,these faults though some serious,aren't something that can't be put right with a some expenditure(both monetary and time). Then you're offered a new bike but the snag i...

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

Hi, I am happy to carry on with the post :) No one can predict which way or what happens next. Maybe a mass protest will hold powers that be to book for half those who could be bothered to put their cross? Then why would anyone vote to step into that unknown unless they were sure it were safe to do...

Re: Schwalbe marathon plus tyres - traction?

What size tyres are they and what pressures do have in them?
