Seem to remember visiting my great uncle & chatting to him in the telly room of his nursing home. In the background I could here the adverts end & Jezza started off on one  :P
Great Uncle Charlie said very loudly; " I bloody well refuse to listen to that C**T " ....:-[

Didn't some of them glue themselves to the DLR?

You know, the electric, public, mass transport system.

The kind of thing they want us to give up our cars for.

Which they stopped from running.

The retards.

All three were remanded in custody to next appear at Blackfriars' Crown Court in May  :P

Just had the local plod round to take a statement. Reckon they know who it is, he's done it before and been inside for it. But unless they catch him in the act........

That's good :y

If that is the case, they will be watching that individual and once they get enough evidence together they should go for the arrest. Only a matter of time with anyone known to the police, and especially for that kind of offence ;)

Fpllowed by a full  invoice from STEMO`s insurer, but what price do we put on the aggravation & annoyance inluding any uninsured losses & not forgetting  the fire fighting duties  :-\

According to total jobs there are, today, 842 unfilled police vacancies within 30 miles of London ... if what you say is true .. "There are many young people who are suitable for those roles, and all they need is the vacancies to be available for them to be encouraged to join." there would be no vacancies.

Not wanting to pick a fight in any way, but there is a reality that is missed by a lot of commentators .. it is not possible to click ones fingers and produce suitable, qualified, people for most jobs/trades simply because you wish it to be so.... or because it makes a nice political sound bite.

That is down to a) the police are now recruiting based on some extra funding they are receiving / going to receive from the Government b) the pressures on the police 'out there now', are immense; they are very demorilised and have felt let down for some time, with many deciding to call it a day causing even further shortages that place even more pressure on those left. Illness and mental illness has had it's effects.

That is why there are vacancies, and will be until far more support, and funds to recruit, is given.  ;)

Lets hope HMG fork out an additional 20% in funding, cos that`s  the percentage increase thet  some folks will be paying in this years council tax   ::)

I`m sure we all encounter the odd driver having a moment on their journey.
They might be senior citizen in need of a little extra time & room, but we make allowances  :y
Other inconsiderate drivers must be their biggest nightmare >:(

I think when you reach the age of 70 a huge PA system is installed on yer Micra  ::)

General Discussion Area / Re: Parking Ticket - Win
« on: 09 February 2019, 00:01:29 »
Why do people who park, either over time, badly, or were they shouldn't, and get a ticket, think they should not have to pay the fine, or try and appeal it.   

I have a hatred of them, especially bad Parking, encounter it every day, and it makes my job even harder, trying to find the dip-$&it who has blocked a whole road, a loading area, or a no parking turning area,. Car should be towed and crushed.... Rant over.

At least some of the bafoons take the effort to flick on their hazards first   ::) >:(  ;D

« on: 06 February 2019, 22:02:22 »
my SIL  :-* has had 3 mini`s & they`re not the most reliable of cars
Her last car suffered with a limp mode issue, so the main dealer replaced the cam sensor
All was ok for a while & then back to limp mode & a new crank sensor fitted
Her first mini was a manual & the syncho between 2 & 3 was toast on a 60k mile car & the gear box had a weird whine to it.
Her latest mini is a coupe & cross fiingers seems a better car, but only has 2 seats & the wing on the boot deploys at speeds above 60  ;D
But why did BMW use a peugeot engine for the mini, why did they think that was a good idea  ???
