Re: Got hit on the commute, driver drove off but then got st

Having watched the OP's video I think I would have opted for the exit via the drop kerb and took to the pavement on his nearside...You were indeed lucky. :shock:

Re: Final nail for Armstrong?

What gets me angry about the whole LA issue is the fact that he almost destroyed the lives of the people that tried to tell the world what he was up to. The team mates wife, the masseur, the Times reporter, everyone that told what we now know is the truth got the LA threat of a court case and with n...

Re: Final nail for Armstrong?

BBC sport news page states that LA is due to take part in the Oprah show in the States in the next week......... His titles and reputation have gone.... THIS is his one chance to give all the details and name names, times, places etc....The only way for LA to win any respect back (IMHO) in the cycli...

Re: The job situation.

Good grief one and a half pages about the Welsh language and if it has any value outside Wales....Who bloody cares. The OP was about teaching on the cheap with bi lingual 'teaching assistants'.... I suspect that bi-lingual does have its advantages here, seeing as it a post in Welsh primary schools. ...

Re: New Archbishop of Canterbury

IMHO the problem with religion is the silly rules that come with it.... I'm quite sure that IF there is a God or some other mystical being that created everything in the universe then he/she/it would not give a cuss about what day you eat fish or how you show grief at the death of a loved one or if ...

Re: Vulcan Bomber

They have a TSR2 at Cosford aerospace museum, it's massive. The museum has a backroom open week from 12th - 17th November where you can view aircraft under restoration before being on display. Entrance is free too which is always a bonus. You only pay for parking which is £3:50p per car for up to 8 ...

Re: Blog post on Obree, about drugs.

Great link....Obree is to cycling what Boris Johnson is to the Conservative party....Mad as a fish, but tells it like it is.

Utmost respect for Obree with his truthfulness and openness he is a British treasure.

Re: CTC & Phil Liggett

My view is it is a lot more than just report......Its a document that contains sworn affidavit (sp?) evidence from 11 former team mates and 20+ other witnesses that saw or were asked to assist in activities around LA's chemical jollies....Should LA actually challenge any of it in a court then they w...

Forgive me PT, have you read the USADA report?

Re: CTC & Phil Liggett

It is/wasn't just Phil Liggett. Miguel Indurain still believes in Lance Armstrong's innocence . And Armstrong hasn't put up his defence yet... Armstrongs defence!!?? Blimey I'd pay to watch that in a court of law...... You know, I think people would even now still have a small scrap of respect for ...
