...states, amongst others : Do not park opposite, or within 10 meters (32') of, a junction.
Where is the 10 meters measured from, the centre or edge of the adjoining roadway? :-\
I have asked a Highways Engineer, who was uncertain. So perhaps I am being optimistic asking here.

Apparently a piece of law that the Wiltshire Constabulary have decided is irrelevant, never enforced, always ignored and damned annoying. I've even tried to report it on "101" .. to be told "parking is the councils responsibility" .... so the Wiltshire Police actualy ignore the Road Traffic Act .....   :(

As I understand it, in the wording of the Highway Code, MUST NOT means it is legally enforceable and have the relevant law reference printed beneath. DO NOT rules, and breaches thereof, are dealt with by the Local Authority under the Road Traffic Act 2004, and fines up to £75 may be imposed for such breaches.  :y
If that law, or the law about parking on pavements was enforced around here, or in any urban conurbation, no one would be able to get within half a mile of their house and the roads would be impassable.

The relentless scaremongering on the telly box doesn't help...
At the end of the day, the funeral people simply take it out of your estate. If you owe more than you own, then they quietly cremate you. After all, it's not as thought they can just leave you where you drop  ::)
If you don't look after your own affairs, it falls upon your nearest and dearest, or even the bunch of relatives you haven't seen for years.

8 miles from home, and I worked at Hemsworth.

Coming from Hemsworth, you must have crossed to the dark side just before Brierley. Did you not feel the atmosphere change?  ;D

a mates wife said she was cold, he told her to go down the garden to the shed and "fetch a bag of coal"

when she got back, he said "not that one" she went back and swapped it,

as she got back to the house he asked "Are you warm yet?"
;D ;D
That's coil, not coal, coit, not coat in South Yorkshire. Tis a very strange language.

Weddings, funerals, christenings .....gotta have a punch up.

It all went belly up when they picked Ed rather than David  Milliband.

Given the field , Sir Keir is the best choice. Canít see him ever being PM though.
No. He's a wishy washy liberal at heart. We'd be overrun with immigrants, and it would be against the law not to be LBGT.

OK and your favourite of the candidates is?
Favourite candidate? It's Labour, I'd rather shoot them than vote for them.
Do you need a hand?
No, just a gun please.

Has Mrs Opti been at your laptop...again?

Apparently Pornhub was used 33 billion times last year. Only 7 billion on the planet. Somebody was busy.
Never heard of it.
