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

hello again playmates :D , "Paywalls"? I don't know about them, but my local newsagent lets me have a copy for £2, or if you subscribe for the paper it will cost £1-60p. The Swiss item is page one of today's business section! The Irish issue is on page 5 of main paper. You can even get cop...

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

Hi PDQ Mobile, "Citation"? That's what you get from the cops for parking by a "Fire Plug"! If you mean source? Try Daily Telegraph, Financial Pages, 25th June 2019! So with that stated is everything still trash? Not everything that the E.U. does is nice & beneficial for membe...

Re: Language pedants

Hi again, Surely language became more defined & controlled when Caxton started to print books? When all readily available history was verbal spelling was irrelevant, bu with more books being accessible spelling had become controlled, hence the need for lexicons! Write what you mean, mean what yo...

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

Hi all, The nasty E.. is racking up the pressure on Switzerland over the "Equivalence" treaty? So the Swiss have now banned the E.U. from dealing in the shares of Swiss companies! Tit for tat for high stakes. But I think that the E.U. has just made a wrong move in their political chess gam...

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

Hi again, The E.U. isn't perfect, hence the current ECHA report due shortly into Oxo-Biodegradable Plastic? The Commission has pulled the rug away to prevent completion?????????????????????????????? This is reported to the financial pages of todays Daily Torygraph! The don't appear to want facts to ...

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

Hi there, Sometimes the strength of ones convictions has little or nothing to do with so called reason. Being well educated doesn't necessarily mean that that person is clever, might have umpteen degrees & doctorates but can't see the wood for the trees! Often we can't quite explain things to th...

Re: NO quote for service is that a joke

Hi all, Well said Peetee :D . One always has to bear in mind that some potential customers can be quite awkward types, know the price of everything and the value of nothing. Dear Tangled Metal the motor trade is littered with so called good practise which is anything but! My time in the motor trade,...

Re: Environmental protestors interrupt Chancellor's speech

Hi again, From what I see & hear the "Brutal Man" against the "Delicate Woman" is still an issue for many? Far too many people stand and shout about their rights, but seldom examine their responsibilities! A shock can be as effective killer as a knife, acts can have a serious...

Re: Environmental protestors interrupt Chancellor's speech

Hi reohn2, Focus on this simple point. I treat all people as just that, I don't give or expect preferential treatment on the grounds of gender, sexuality, colour, creed or any other similar parameter, equality was demanded, equality given. Quite why you think anything said against the M.P. is releva...

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

Hi Vorpal :D , Wow, I forgot that all those years ago I would have been a "Pro-Marketeer", doesn't time fly? That was because I saw the purpose of an alliance of trading nations, not a "European Super State"! Mutuality not Singularity. Go back to the EEC and I would vote remain t...

Re: Environmental protestors interrupt Chancellor's speech

Hi reohn2 :shock: , I would have thought that everyone would by now be conversant with the backgrounds of all involved in this incident? Mr Field is now being portrayed as a child abuser just because he asked a young person on public transport to reduce the volume of her load personal noise box! But...

Re: Environmental protestors interrupt Chancellor's speech

Hi all, I think an investigation into the working conditions of that person's rabbits must be instigated immediately! The views of the rabbits involved must be sought to ensure that they are not being exploited or under paid!! Their mental well-being may be seriously at risk? IGICB MM

Re: NO quote for service is that a joke

Hi there, A personal face to face with a machine in view is always the way to go. Unless a concern has a policy of automatically replacing all "Consumable" elements , chain, cassette, cables, brake components et al they can't quote blind! Chain lubrication alone causes me concern, as I don...
