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

Hello all, Could there be an environmental bonus on the horizon with a hard Brexit? If the E.U. shuts the doors on the U.K., no easy exports into our smoggy unpleasant land, no BMW's, Porsche's, Audi's, Merc's, VW's, Citroens, Renault's, Pug's, Seat's, Fiat's, Ferrari's, Alfa's, maybe we will become...

Re: Turner on the Turner Prize

Hello all, I tend to view modern art in the Hans Christian Anderson version - "The Emperors New Clothes"! Sycophantic Words to sound sagacious.
Rather like the "Twit on a Stick" by Tracy Emin. I just don't get it? MM

Re: An apology

Hi Reohn2, Please excuse me for answering your comment. I do this in the strong belief that you deserve respect and thanks for doing something rare in this day and age? You perceive wrong in either your words or deeds and make a sincere apology, that sir is worthy of praise. We may all at times over...

Hi there, The real artist JMW Turner gave brilliant lectures for the R.A., his one on "Perspective" was brilliant and still stands the test of time. MM

Re: antisocial parking the norm?

Hi 661-Pete, Simple with lateral thinking, U.S. Military Bases, Burtonwood, Lakenheath, Mildenhall et al. That is because British soil becomes U.S. Soil under various arrangements. They had supermarkets & bowling alleys before we'd even heard of such! Similar novelties came about when Britain to...

Re: antisocial parking the norm?

Morning all, Question for you.
Where were the first self-service supermarkets in Britain? A clue is that they weren't technically in Britain. A nice pub quiz question. IGICB MM

Re: Stop Killing our Children

It is time that there was a root & branch overhaul of the standards & abilities of the licensed & "Un-Licensed" users of the roads! We are also long overdue with proper controls over vehicles that use our roads. We invariably get flack about "Historic Class" banger, e...

Re: Yet another Death?

Hi all, I've just seen a piece of court news in "Rail" magazine - A HGV Driver admitted going through a red traffic light and slamming into a rather large tram in Sheffield in 2018, the tram is still out of service. He was fined the earth shattering sum of £250-00p? I believe that MickF co...

Spot on MJR, 100%. Only thing missing is Jeremy Clarkson as Transport Secretary? At least things were going the right way when Barbara Castle held the post, she didn't drive :D . MM

Re: PMs honours: who deserves one?

Oi Brynpoeth, Watch your lip mate! Or you'll be eating knuckle butties :evil: . Back a few years Liverpool FC tried to take control of the "Liver Bird" image! But which version? Oh so many variants, but even the City Council has no intellectual property rights over its own crest. By trying...

Re: antisocial parking the norm?

Josh Guys & Lasses, This thread has got me all nostalgic, mentally walking back through time? Who recalls the first "Supermarket" when it invaded their local community? I recall that it was a red letter day in Liverpool when the Garston & District Co-operative Society opened the ne...

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

Hello again, Sorry to be back so soon but another of those old legal terms has popped into my head? There is a long established defence that is taught in Legal Training - "Cut Throat Defence", where joint accused point the finger at each other to absolve themselves from guilt. In the light...
