General Discussion Area / Poor Labour
« on: 18 February 2019, 18:10:52 »
Losing seven of it's MP's.  ::) What a pity the Tories are split into two parties too because, the last time this kind of thing happened, Thatcher stayed in power for ten years.

3,500 jobs gone by 2022...and nothing to do with brexit apparently.

Too old to drive?  ::)

General Discussion Area / Speed awareness course
« on: 12 February 2019, 06:57:35 »
In the news today: More than a quarter of British drivers have been on a speed awareness course, netting the police 50million last year (police claim about 45 of the fee for administration costs).

That's a lot of awareness.  ;D

General Discussion Area / Opti will love this

He is very sympathetic towards us oldies, so will be pleased to hear that we are being looked after. I just received this email from Northern Powergrid:

Investments in our network mean the chances of power cuts have reduced dramatically in recent years, but in winter, storms, floods and other extreme conditions can sometimes cause damage to your local power network. Northern Powergrid is here to fix things 24/7, 365 days a year...whatever the weather.
As one of our Priority Services customers, we'll make sure that you receive extra help and support if there is a power cut.
You can use our dedicated priority phone number, which will get you through to one of our specially trained Powergrid Care advisors straightaway. Just call 0800 169 2996. We're available for you 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Our teams will work to keep in contact with you throughout your power cut, to check you are okay. We might also be able to send one of our customer support vehicles to your area to provide hot drinks, and charging points during a longer power cut.
You may also benefit from our partnership with the British Red Cross. We can arrange for them to visit your home should you need additional help, or just need someone to talk to over the telephone.

 ;D ;D ;D

General Car Chat / Car tax, more expense
« on: 06 February 2019, 11:19:40 »
That Opti fella says us pensioners have it easy, but things like car tax soon drain our resources. Just had to tax the wife's car....2.63 a month. There goes my cream cake at lunchtime.  ;D

General Discussion Area / Funny how one thing leads to another
« on: 29 January 2019, 16:45:17 »
Just got my new credit card, 0% interest on purchases for 24 months..............and I immediately opened the auto trader app.  :-X  :o

General Car Chat / Start/stop
« on: 21 January 2019, 12:42:11 »
I have an astra 2.0 diesel auto elite in blue. A dog walking acquaintance has an astra 2.0 diesel manual SE in blue. The cars look almost identical. Yet a battery for mine is around 80, and a battery for his is around 350. He reckons, in his two years of ownership, the fickin thing has never 'stopped' once. Go figure.

General Discussion Area / Why do we want to leave the EU?
« on: 16 January 2019, 22:08:14 »
Read the fourth paragraph:

Calls to ban low-level letterboxes and adopt EU standard

General Discussion Area / Sick sick world
« on: 16 January 2019, 20:58:45 »
The crime is sick, but the sentence is even worse. What a fickin travesty:

Teenager raped seven-year-old boy in graveyard

General Discussion Area / Wingeing, pathetic git.
« on: 11 January 2019, 13:03:29 »
Has anyone seen Andy Murray announcing his retirement? What an embarrassing twot he is. Can't see Djokovic, Federer or Nadal carrying on like that.
He probably only made about 20,000,000 or so.

General Discussion Area / A question for lorryists
« on: 08 January 2019, 17:36:06 »
We have a place around here called mobile mini, which transports containers around on the back of trucks. They sometimes put two on a flatbed, with one of them sticking way over the back of the bed. As you come out of Asda, there are a set of lights with two, narrow lanes, the right hand one of which is a filter to turn right. As the lorry turns right, the rear container comes right across the left hand lane, it must be at least three or four metres behind the rear wheel. Is this legal?

New series tonight. Hope it lives up to it's billing.
