    Sad or not, I bet the vast majority of the UK population are in 100% agreement with me. She turned her back on the UK, the land which gave her birth, education, freedom and God knows what else. She decided to go to Syria, where she says that looking at bins full of decapitated heads “did not phase her.”  I wonder what the families of those whose…[Read more]

    The Duke – ” ..Let her back, and monitor her….”

    I would think that our hard pressed police / security services are fully stretched already with the ones we know / suspect are sympathisers, let alone allow back a person who has shown total disregard for her country of birth and who has shown no remorse whatsoever about the events she witnessed…[Read more]

    Bob – unfortunately my county council has not had the reputation for being above board – though how it is now I’m not certain but probably a lot better I believe/hope!

    Sometime ago, and I had a similar problem using an adapter on a mobo DVI to something or vice vice versa – the book with the mobo said that it would not operate with adapters only direct to the screen. Not sure if this is your problems here but might be worth a check.

    Ed P “. P&CCs must be the most stupidly expensive and totally useless idea ever!…”

    You won’t get any arguments from me on that comment.

    Remember years ago going to one particular Com Council – F there had spectacle lenses thicker than many deep sea ROVs would have, showed me photos of drug dealings on top of the spire in the local primary…[Read more]

    I had to deal with community / town councils when I was in the police – mainly in rural Anglesey. Afterwards a report would have to be sent to my DHQ which would commence “At time, date and place I attended at XX  Comm Council. Then the spiel of what was discussed – ALWAYS the same topic just in different orders! My concluding sentence was always…[Read more]

    Ed P ” .. They soon come to realise that they are just taking the blame for Central Government’s many inadequacies and stealth taxes. ..”

    Agreed but they earn nice wages and decent allowances to boot. The biggest mistake and I think it was Thatcher who made it, was to introduce Cabinet style local authorities where C Execs now, in many areas, e…[Read more]

    ” … and constraining (strait-jacket + gag?) the DofE.”

    Not so easy – me thinks!!

    Just seen now that the driver / passenger (the one with the injured arm) in the Kia is very unhappy at the decision. Understandable but it happens each and every day.

    Politics – local or otherwise frightens me – I look at some that govern us!!

    The Welsh Government negotiated a contract so that Pinewood Studios Wales  could take up a new base somewhere in South Wales – they (WG) paid £5M for the property then found out that the roof needed £1M spent on it  – oh yes and by the way – there was something about VAT…[Read more]

    Planeman I gather from your comment that you are not a Royalist, be that as it may, in the vast majority of similar accidents involving the elderly,  removing them from the road is the best cure. Are you saying that the DofE should have been prosecuted because he was the DofE? Surely his position in tbe R/Family should not be a governing issue in…[Read more]

    I would imagine that the vehicles are hired / leased to the R/Household – though I don’t know. Just imagine on the V5 having HM as previous keeper – probably add a few ££ to the selling price! Don’t know if it still applies these days but there was a time when you could lodge ££mega with Lloyds which covered you as insurance. Probably cheaper to…[Read more]

  • Yes sorry, got the flu, head not too good at the best of times even worse these last few days.  Come around to my H/A and beat me to death for the error – it would be a relief!! 😁

  • Ed P – Yes I did note the comment in your last post but if the offending vehicles driver / company owners do go their insurance route, their insurance company will find it very easy to find yours. It COULD be a matter that your insurance co might call ‘failing to disclose relevant matters’ and currently with all insurances etc. on connected…[Read more]

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic Car crash in the forum Motor Sports 6 days, 20 hours ago

    Ed P – no I disagree though some will never be persuaded – there was nothing to be gained by a prosecution, it would not be in the public interest, the vehicle would be fully compliant with all requirements as to insurance etc. etc. Tragically the occupants of the Kia were injured thankfully not too seriously and insurances will sort that…[Read more]

  • I think you will find that somewhere in your insurance policy clauses that you will be required to inform them that you have been involved in an accident though your car was parked and unattended at the time. The question is “have you been involved in an accident?” not “have you been involved in a blameworthy accident?”

    Hiding things from your…[Read more]

    QED!

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic Brexit now = CETA +/-? in the forum Europe 1 week, 1 day ago

    The word ‘politican’ and ‘truth’ are never found in the same sentence.

    Just to go back to the Brexit debate – might it not have been better if May had gone in with a coalition of all parties at the outset as this is something what will affect the UK for decades to come. At least then we could blame the whole lot of the shysters as opposed to…[Read more]

  • The answer is very obvious – READ THE SMALL print – however home many homes these days have electron microscopes?

    Unfortunately though your ‘pride and joy’ may be worth a mint to you, the bottom line with the ins co. is value – a 40 year old Ford Cortina in pristine condition has a bottom line value – that’s what it is worth to the ins co. Though I have to admit I have no idea how they value…[Read more]

    ” … As election day or second referendum day draws closer this helps modify how political parties set out their policy…..”

    Policies are meaningless, how often in general elections do we hear (irrespective of your political colours) parties offering what everyone wants to hear, then once in government such promises disappear quicker than snow…[Read more]
