After they removed the toll booths - what queues? Or is that your point, Albs? :y


After they removed the toll booths Ron, the feeble excuse for calling it a congestion charge should have become null & void, but they didn't bother to tell the truth even then. That its just a money spinner.
Originally the charge was supposed to pay the cost of building the crossing, Then it would become free.
Then it was extended to build up a maintenance fund, then it became a congestion charge....
Plus add to the fact that when has Our precious Government actually reversed a Tax, Charge or Penalty once its been introduced for what ever reason.

I simply avoid it now you have to @rse around online. I was happy to chuck some cash in the bucket when they had toll booths. Their loss. ::)
Yea, there is that, you tend to forget about it about 10 Nano Seconds after you driven through it and then start to concentrate on more important things in your Life.  :-[

When it first went Booth'less, they did have a Short Term Policy of "Well let you Off the Penalty as its your first time, but dont do it again" if you did mange to remember it within 3 days, phoned them up and grovelled up to them. But these days they dont take any Prisoners.  :(

Well 154,502 foreign lorry drivers have not paid 1 million Dart Charges in 2018.  Surprise, surprise eh!!

You will therefore be fine Varche if your car has Spanish plates! ;D ;)
They WILL try and get you in Fines.

The Dart Charge is actually a Congestion Charge and Funds go to TFL, they have a pretty good track record of getting there unpaid Fee's, so much so in fact that all of the TFL unpaid Fees and Fines Income amount almost match the the amount of Revenue that People pay on the Day.

I thought that was the general idea on New Year's Eve. But the Jeremy Kyle fodder have been at it for a couple of hours already round here. What is the connection between a lack of intelligence and loud bangs?
Answers on a postcard please.
No Idea, but its probably a bit like asking the question -

"whats the difference between Ignorance and Arrogance"

Answer, - "I dont know and I dont give a F#ck"  ;D

The Five so called National Channels, BBC1, 2, ITV, 4 and 5 are (or were) in most Cases on Higher Power and bigger Bandwidth over the rest of Freeview Channels, so its definitely a deterioration of TV Signal causing your issues, and will probably get worse before it gets better

Ive got an EE Double Speed Data Sim, 32GB which I get 50% Discount on, works out about 15 a month, your welcome to use that if you want to foot the Bill on a month to month basis Varche, or if you wanted to take it on I could probably Transfer it over to you as a Family and Friends Transfer, just need to check that the Discount will go over with it.

Its a Data Sim, so no Mins induced, does have 100 Texts per month included though, and it has an Roaming Allowance included, cant remember exactly what now, Tethering not a Problem, so can be used in a Phone (Hot Spot), Tablet, MiFi Device or Mobile Broadband Device (which is what it was designed for, hence why its one of those Double Speed jobbies)

Its out of Contract now, so its effectively a 30 Day Contract Sim, so as per norm, 30 days notice to Terminate, one of my Sons is currently using it at the moment until His Broadband gets connected which I think is in the first Week into January.

That is a great offer, thanks.  Could you check the roaming part please?. If a good percentage is available to roam I would have it for six months .
Ok Varche, had a looong chat with EE today re the Data Roaming, wasnt easy, never is or straight foward, but in a nut shell, yes, but All EE Customers are given a 15gb pm Data Roaming Fair Use Policy or Capping.

So the Data Sim Im talking about current has 32Gb which has a Pre Roaming agreement on (ie None) but they will change that for a 30gb UK with EU Roam on it, for a couple of quid more, without me losing my Discount or having to sign up for another Plan, ie Im still on 30 Day Termination, which with the Discount works out about 17 per month. But there is still the 15 GB Cap on it when Roaming. So the Other option (because I moaned) is they can put me on a lower Tariff say 15Gb UK and EU which will give 15GB in UK or 15 GB in EU when Roaming, this will work out at 25 less my Discount so will bring down to about 12 pm. again no loss of Discount and continue on a 30 Day notice, will this be of use to you in your your Travels.?

With the above because of my Privileges with EE I retain the right to revert back to my original 32GB UK Sim when the Travels are finished. There may be an RRP price increase around April time, All Networks do this now, which will be around 50p to a 1 depending on the Plan.

I also get very good Deals and Discounts with Vodafone which as a Business Customer probably wont have any Roaming Restrictions attached but that will mean you committing to a 12 Month Plan, which Is probably something you dont wont to do but maybe worth considering? I also asked about transferring the Sim over to you, which they will agree on and carry on the 30 Day Notice but you will not get the Discount benefits or be able to change plans etc.

I had a 3 sim in my duel sim phone last august in europe,
the EE sim worked most places, (11 countries) the 3 sim didnt work past dover.

Clearly not unlocked for roaming then...  ;)
And there was me thinking surprised he got coverage that far.

Well if thats what you want for it, then thats what you what, think your struggle on here at that price unless it really is mint, but thats my personal view, think AutoTrader is your best bet.

The EU need an EU Army to protect the Irish Border after weve gone Hard No Deal Brexit, because I very much doubt we'll be doing it.  ???

Back in the early 90's I sold my 1.4 Petrol Escort Van that had been all around the UK with 275K on the Clock back to Fords for a strip down.
