  1. Fair points - I'll settle for both sides not trying hard enough to stop them - perhaps each for nefarious reasons.
  2. I had an old CR-V a few years ago and currently have an 02 Civic as a second car mainly for Mrs-G. Both had/have no underbody rust at all - dunno how they acheive that but the Civic looks like a two year old from below. The guy who bought the CR-V contacted me after the next MOT inspection to say it sailed straight through and how pleased he still was with the car. I only sold it because the drivers door was too short/narrow for my height (knees knocked the dash on entering) and my NV fouled the window frame with the rifle on the door mirror bracket. My X-Trail door is 5" wider and doesn't have that issue. My point is: I'm assuming they must use a clear underseal or clear coat lacquer. Even behind the wheel arch folds are totally clean after washing accumulated dust away.
  3. It seems quite logical to me that a few successful 'stops' on french beaches will cause the migrants to stop gathering in northern France seeking a boat ride to England. It has to be in their interest to put a stop to it.... unless of course its all deliberate EU skulduggery to make life difficult for UK - which I personally suspect is the case. Withholding the payment/bribe/ransom to France until they earn it is of course the proper way to do the job, seems Priti and Boris might have some balls after all.
  4. Solid/insulated roof's are defo the way to go these days now restrictive planning rules have been relaxed.
  5. Any MK 7 Honda Civic 1.6 VTEC EPS gurus on here?

    Good old DHL.

    Hermes/DPD etc delivery drivers get peanuts per delivery - almost all are eastern European or Asian driving old private cars on private insurance and I imagine many have gone back home now. Similar to taxi drivers, farm pickers and almost any other unskilled labour dependent work, plus many semi skilled jobs too. Bosses just got too complacent with poor wages to acheive competitive prices to compete with Europe. Partner and I are much better off on my standard state pension and her reduced one than when I was cabbing before I got mugged by five Somalian passengers. Schools and Universities didn't help with their silly media studies ETC instead of practical education... I'm thinking that might have been part of the EU game plan to take us downhill.
  7. I'm well pleased with both my first and second T30 auto's.
  8. Almost everyone else here knows your tats reference was about some people pleading poverty while spending money on non essentials like tats, beer, smokes, big screens, latest mobiles, trendy clothes, takeaways/deliveries yada yada but tats seemed a superb coverall.
  9. Or the house of Windsor doesn't do court proceedings - end of.
  10. Plod might do well to consider how many ticket holders go the extra mile in lawfulness to avoid losing their hard won treasured possession. Making things more difficult for holders might see some not bothering to stay on the path of righteousness.
  11. I see it as very encouraging that the police are digging deep within their own departments for those who don't do their job correctly. Anyone with common sense can see the persons who allowed twatto to get his gun back are wrong uns not to be trusted to act in the interests of public safety.

    Wasson?

    Trump's revenge maybe.

    Wasson?

    Facebook, instagram and whatsapp all gone down together.
  14. There'll be a good few idiots about then - he won't be the only person to have taken a pot shot on a golf course at a ball.
  15. What about the next chapter? :-)
  16. I use the regulator gauge on the fill bottle for my BTAS FAC FX Cyclone as regulated rifles only show the regulated chamber pressure rather than the main bottle pressure. As said above I too refill after using five magazines of pellets which takes the 220 bar down to about 200 bar.
  17. But their whole business model is news, reporting on it as often and in depth as they can wring out of the opportunity. Endless opportunities for photos and slobber till something else comes along - maybe Greta Thurnberg will be next - again. Can't blame their success at reporting the news however unpleasant it may be for us - do you really want reporting restrictions about bad or even feeble news? OOH look, a murdering coppers been sentenced - that'll probably do the job for a day or two, Then Labours Keir Starperformer
  18. Swapping the word 'guidance' to 'rules' would get my vote to stop do as they like commissioners, chiefs and FLO's doing what they prefer rather than what should be plain simple uniform RULES. Exceptions should be subject to greater investigation and culpability. Why should doctors basically have to question their personal morals about their patients suitability for shooting! A firearms holder Flag on a shooters medical with a legal requirement to notify FLO if a patient becomes a risk should be sufficient.
  19. I did over 40 years private hire cab driving on permanent nights. There was always money coming in but struggled to pay major bills and motor insurance always had to be on credit. And yes that was while drawing income support because the local council were 'modernising' their fleet at our expense. I retired soon after getting mugged by five Somalians. Since I've retired I've never been so well off with both our state pensions coming in. When one of us goes the other will be on bread line income again which is why we did a small equity release for the daughters dowry, and to be sure there's money in the bank for both funerals and enough to top up the ensuing single pension to expire in our modest 2 bed semi that will hopefully provide our 3 kids with a deposit for their first step on the property ladder.
  20. Agreed, my next door neighbour rents out houses in Manchester& Bradford areas. Says he can get the same rents as Leicester but almost half the money tied up.
  21. Ah, screw the press freedoms then?
  22. Us old uns paid in a lot more than we get credit for if percentage of wage and cost of living is accounted for. My first weeks wage was £3.3s&6d - can't remember how to write that now lol. A Morris oxford cost about £500 new. Oh, and father let me have the 3&6
  23. Capitalise Helston please - that's where I was born. Purchase tax...
  24. All they emmets gotta get fuel for their homeward bound trip.
