Re: What is a constitution?

Hello all, We keep being told by the controllers that we in the UK have an "Unwritten Constitution"??? So we have experts on hypothetical meanings about non existent rights, with resolute assurances that all citizens are better off with such a system! But for me I support the old comment -...

Re: Stonehenge bypass

Hello Playmates, With all of the climate change protests I would say that the best thing to do would be to turn most of our currently over populated roads into combined cycle paths & bridlepaths, proper green corridors! Congestion no longer an issue 8) . MM

Re: Have you lit the fire yet?

Hi all, Since the knife men cut me apart a couple of years ago I have felt the cold, which I previously never did. But as of late it has been so pleasant I have been in the shorts & a light S/S jersey, triking it in delight. Friends of mine down in Southampton always moan that up here is like th...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hello Playmates, The electrification of the Liverpool - Manchester line was questioned because of the Listed Status of the Rainhill Bridge, original Rocket route. I believe they overcame the problem by lowering the track not raising the bridge, simples. So maybe a few tunnels could use the same opti...

Re: Sneaky mobile speed camera van - do you warn people?

Hello there, On a normal 3 lane motorway there is a driving lane and 2 overtaking lanes, only 1 of which is lawful for HGV use. No slow lane, no fast lane, although there is a minimum speed stipulated for their use, but many folk don't know that. It is 40 mph. So maybe a fair few of those who stand ...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Hi Pete75, You won't get to debate your points at University these days with your throwaway "Coconut" joke :shock: , very down on such thoughts or expressions! But the point about the very limited cross-section of people who will elevate the next punter to the job of P.M. is very clear, no...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hi Kwackers, London of course also had electric Trolley Buses. In fact they turn up in some very odd places? In the Liverpool based film "Violent Playground", Stanley Baker, a young David McCallum, a school involved wasn't actually in Liverpool, the giveaway was the sight of a Trolley Bus ...

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

Hi there, And when a stupid idiot glued to the phone steps in front of a cyclist the cyclist gets hammed!
Loads of witnesses state she didn't look and the cyclist tried to avoid the impact, but some idiot Judge gives her damages & costs? Insanity reigns!

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hello again, The stupid switch over to diesels in public transport in cities started way back. In Liverpool back in 1949, the public transport fleet was almost totally tram based, work fine. But sadly there was a large fire at the main tram depot which took out over 60 trams. Offers poured in from a...
