Imo, how you vote depends on whether or not you live in a marginal seat. If I lived in one I would hold my nose and vote Tory.
I don't, so I have the luxury of having a protest vote.
It has to be any tactic which doesn't allow Corbyn into number 10, unless your a lunatic by the name of Michael Heseltine, who said on tv last night that he would rather that scenario than a Tory victory. His europhillia has literally driven him past the point of insanity.
Hesaltine - a local resident here - has a monk on because the government have approved and funded a new bypass around Farthinghoe. Its made him quite cross, which has cheered up the last few weeks ;D
Hopefully it goes throught his garden. ::)
Sadly not.  As that would be funny as F

Apparently I'd upset Jamie by my 7th post on the forum  :-[
I didn't know he'd left a magic tree air freshener in his car and presented it for MOT  :-X
surprised he hasn't banned me from the OOF many times  ;D
I keep forgetting I have the rights to do so ;D

You have descended into tech speak which me no speak. :-X
There is a very high chance your IP is not personally identifiable.

That better?

Never seen the point of "doing a spoil" it'll get the same notice paid to it as not voting in the first place so you might as well save some time and not bother turning out to the polling station.I know none of them are really worth voting for but someone has to be in government.
I see, understand, and accept what you are saying.

However, we are privileged to be able to vote. And I feel that everybody* should/must cast a vote.  That's just the way I feel.  But I am really struggling to put a cross against any of the wet dreams I can chose from.



*Those I consider eligible. ie, adults who pay NI and without a criminal record.

Mrs TB looking at it. The only one she buys in a year.

Her verdict is there is nothing but shite on.  So looks like Amazon Prime and Netflix will be renewed for another month ;D

Its hard to compare between eras.  And there is talent, there is (controlled) desire, and there is those few that have both.

IMHO, Hamilton has a good degree of talent and of desire. But his peers are a bit wet really - Leclerc aside.  Button, for example had loads more talent, though lacked the desire. Vettel has the desire, a bit of talent, but the desire is a bit uncontrolled.  Hamilton is a Brit, so I support him in the same way I do/did other British winners, with a hint of rose tinted specs. I quite liked Mr Nice Guy Damon Hill - talented but Schu had more desire, and the big oaf reasonably talented Mansell. But that's more because they are Brits ;D


Shithead Schu, irrespective of how much over the rules his team went, had the talent and desire in abundance - though couldn't deal with the changed cars that happened during his retirement.  Senna I think nobody would disagree with on the talent front.  I also rated Prost to an extent, but accept he's French, so you will disagree no matter what ;D.



But I lack your confidence that Hamilton is one of the greats, and not sure he ever will be in my mind. His stats are good, but for me, most of that is because his peers are mostly a bunch of Nancy boy poofs*.


*actually, there was that rumour that Hamilton might have had a "liaison" with a well known footballer a couple of years back :P

No delivery driver will enter the Brackley blast zone
even these chaps stay 37 miles away from Jaime's house  :P
The garage incident came up in a discussion at work (partly because I have been known to store 100k+ of work gear in there in the past ;D).

Anyway, turns out I'm a mere amateur when it comes to destroying buildings accidentally, compared to some members of my team.

So there :P

He's talented.  But not yet one of the greats IMHO.

Why ?
Because he's not talented enough.

I even rate (pre retirement) Shithead Schu higher.

I *WILL* go down and vote, but not sure I can bring myself to vote for any of the 6 candidates. Might be a spoil as a protest.


In India (I think), there is a NOTA option, which if it gets a certain percentage, that region has to go through the process again, but none of the original candidates are allowed to stand.  I think that's a cracking idea.

Just rechecked our local candidates in the hope that a viable candidate had come forward. But no.

Usual bunch of knobjockeys from the main 4. One of the independents is a nutter, the other is a fan of trashing all the countryside to create houses for the lame and lazy.

None mention HS2 - in fact I've only seen the Brexit Party mention in, but they aren't standing.


What a choice of nobodies.  Christ, I'm even considering the greens :o.


If Opti was here, I reckon he'd go Labour, as she is only a single bag job. Leadsom and the Greens are both 3 bag jobs.


Fortunately, I think Labour stand no chance here, as its Tory belt, and this constituency were bigoted enough to vote Leave 54/46%.  Although highly scientific research* shows nobody here likes Boris' deal, so who knows.



*asking me mates down the pub ;D

One was the replacement for the missing items on a previous order, and didn't get any of the notifications.  The other, the "its been dispatched" didn't arrive until the next day (despite being ordered before midday). Yet still didn't turn up until even a day after that.

Mongs.
How can the notifications be different for you to me? I can only think that you use a lot of sellers from the marketplace, most of my orders are direct from Amazon.
Try never to use Marketplace, unless I have to. Marketplace is as crap as egay.

If its a replacement item - ie, you've called Amazon, spoke to them, and they arrange a replacement that way, it seems you don't get any notifications in my experience. Nor is there any order visible on you account to cover the replacement to check and follow the track links.
Yes, but I thought we were talking just everyday prime deliveries, not replacements.
OK, in that case, they only oppsed up one prime delivery this week then ;D. The other was a promised next day delivery.

I am just going on what I have been told, in that using a VPN stops your IP address being seen.  :-\
Where? Depends what you are doing.

Also, most UK ISPs give their customers dynamic IPs, so is it that much of a worry that "your" (temporary) IP is available to a website owner?

Try living in Spain. The best driver in the whole world is a guy called Sainz.

It is a very British thing not to be patriotic and talk our guys down. We are unique in that respect.

Why shouldnt he talk to Ferrari?  Might be a better car? Might be more money? Might be less media gigs.
And he's coming towards the end of his career, so if he wants to do the Ferrari thing, he has to soon....
