Off topic .... :(

IMHO it's not a good idea to use an email address as a screen name on any forum ... you are leaving yourself wide open to scam/phishing attempts, spam mail, etc etc .... for safety's sake ... I suggest you change it PDQ !!

Welcome BTW .. :)

The police will always START with a "murder" probe, and if required downgrade it to "manslaughter" once the evidence is gathered. The "murder" title gives them access to more resources :)

General Car Chat / Re: Car Tax Rip Off?
« on: 09 July 2018, 12:13:35 »
There's no logic to it. Manufactures just manipulated their emmision figure to put their cars in lower bands. I've an 05 700cc Smart Roadster, its road tax is around 120 whereas my 08 1000cc Smart Fortwo (451) is 30 a year to tax. My 07 Merc R320 is 500+ a year but the newer R350 .... basically the same 3.0 engine ) is 300something to tax.  :-\

That does sound crazy, I ran my car thru the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) website.
  http://carfueldata.dft.gov.uk/

Gives additional MPG figures & you can search for the most green /fuel efficient cars

Apparently the 3.2 Omega does not exist, or was never certified !!!

« on: 03 July 2018, 22:52:57 »
The people I feel sorry for are all the amateur referees who give up so much time to support "grass roots" football in this country. Their job has been made 1000 times harder by the pitiful refereeing and appalling behaviour of so called "professional" players.

They will now have every useless player who thinks he is the next Ronaldo playacting and pushing/shoving/holding in the penalty area with the idea that if it can be done at the world cup then they can do it .....

Any "strong" referee who actually penalises such activities ... in accordance with the laws ... will also have face the "mobbing" by players and, probably worse, the wrath of parents on the sidelines who think their "little darling" can do no wrong.........

I'm afraid the genii is out of the bottle and it will never get forced back in .... thank the Lord I'm no longer involved at any level, if I still was ... I'd be leaving PDQ.

Without officials there will be no matches .. and I can see that point coming ...

The German system seems to work adequately  ::)

National Service works pretty well in Israel, too. Although a much smaller standing Army, I believe, so perhaps that's why the issues highlighted here aren't a problem.

What sanctions can they apply to those who fail to "involve" with the training ??

Presumably the same ones you'd levy against someone who voluntarily signed up and fails to perform? Swift beatings?

No longer allowed I'm afraid .. although not unknown for someone to "trip" behind the Gym .... :)  the "legal" method is to start an Admin Discharge .. the threat of being kicked out is often sufficient stimulus ...  :)

There was something kicking off near Andover on Saturday. I meant to check for news stories. I was out in the glider and there was a curtain of smoke stretching from there to the south coast. Doesn't take much now everything's tinder dry.

Biggish fire on Salisbury Plain??


http://www.salisburyjournal.co.uk/news/16309451.Large_fire_on_Salisbury_Plain/

Seems they couldn't get near it due to "possible" unexploded ordnance" and left parts to burn out naturally.

Having spent 38 years in the military - voluntarily,and loved virtually every minute- I ask a very simple question ......

Just why should the professional and highly skilled members of the Military be forced to (try and) train those who have no wish or enthusiasm, to be there ?? What sanctions can they apply to those who fail to "involve" with the training ??

I can see potential law suits, whinging, and numerous complaints from the left-wing-luvvies etc etc at the poor little street gang member who is "forced" to have a hair cut, say that disgusting word "Sir", and might actually have to get up before 8:00am and make his own bed.

I was an instructor for many years, and the main reason I didn't go into education on leaving was quite simple ... I was used to teaching people who WANTED to be there, and who WANTED to pass the course, as that was the way to higher pay and promotion. It was, strongly, pointed out to me that I "might" have a short fuse when dealing with spotty youths who did not actually wish to be in the lessons I was giving...... that might lead to some "difficulties" .... :)

National service "sounds" simple, but given todays "risk-averse" and "human rights" culture, is fraught with problems, and I ask, again, just why should the professional SNCO's of the modern military have to try and solve societies problems ???   :-\ :-\

Done a little reading .. and decided that the 243 variant might be more suitable ..price is not dissimilar to the 648 one .... if you keep away from the chinese clones, so gone for a reputable dealer in UK rather than risk the bay of fleas .. where all the images have chinese writing !!!  :)

Law of sod will now apply and the advice from an expert will be different !! Ah well .. :)
