  1. Big plant with the big fruit came from Lord Seagrove, the other with lots of small flowers and fruit is Twilight.
  2. In the unedited footage (which includes what's going on in the rest of the venue) it's chaos, there are alarms shrieking off, people running, people screaming and shouting, other people scuffling (who aren't ministers and so haven't been singled out) and anyone there at that moment in time would not have been able to assess the threat, what was going on, what was / was not to come or what the intruders objectives were. LBC had a 20 year plus serving doorman on who confirmed that the neck hold (a favourite with parents across the world) is actually their trained response - it's not harmful to the recipient, it keeps them at distance from you and it controls the head (move / guide the head and the body follows). I am genuinely at a loss as to what the fuss is about.
  3. I think everyone with any sense will all be shouting at the telly this morning. What irritates me is the BBC in presenting the story show a minister grappling 1 protester in isolation with a clip of an interview with a Greenpeace rep where the Greenpeace rep is unchallenged on making out it was an entirely peaceful and lawful demonstration. It’s all a big set up; it’s no mistake that it now transpires all the protesters were women (no one would have known that at the time) because of course the entire flavour of this changes with just 1 male protestor.
  4. So, I’ve woken to all manner of handwringing on the BBC as a group of female activists have been manhandled out of a private event where Philip Hammond was speaking. Seriously, when did we become so wet and entitled to expect that gate crashing and disrupting a significant private event won’t lead to a manhandled ejection? If you were at that event and in the midst of the fire alarms going off, the screaming and shouting you would be forgiven for thinking the worst and responding / protecting yourself accordingly. However, and in my view with some restraint, no punches were thrown, no black eyes sustained, just some grappling and shoving and now the police are investigating, like they haven’t anything better to do. As an aside, if you were in charge of a significant event (having regard to the stress and hours it takes to make any function work properly) you’d be as mad as hell at having it ruined by a gang of entitled twits and I’m amazed there wasn’t footage of the organisers windmilling into the lot of them 😆
  5. I always wanted one (for nostalgia) and I'm on the scent at present. A friend of mine with a gaff in Italy said "you don't see any farmers selling them" i.e. they buy them and never let go of them. Indeed, the last time I was out there, everyone seemed to have a Mk1 Panda and so there must be a plentiful supply of parts. It's a small 4x4 that fits into a garage that a newly passed driver could actually insure and they ain't getting any cheaper. Following on, they seemed like not a bad buy. Also they are small and cheap enough that if something catastrophic happened you could always roll it into a ditch or lose it on eBay. I'll let you all know how I get on.
  6. They’re a bit of a classic now. Anyone on here had or got one? Apart from the Italian tin worm, anything to note / watch out for? Cheers all
  7. Or follow Bobby Axelrod and be ready to bung inside sources large amounts of cash for the market moving scoops. As for Tesla, Netflix and Uber it’s clear the market is excited by what the future holds for these companies, but yes there’s a whiff of the dot-com nonsense with a hint of Theranos in there 😆
  8. Cheers chaps and Gordon for confirming ‘last clay dropped’. I’m with Figgy and love a shoot off - it adds to the excitement and delivers a conclusion / winner.
  9. Agreed. A mate is a copper is a lively Essex town centre and he says they spend their weekends dealing with idiots who have drunk 10 pints, are blazing on coke wanting to fight the world and thinking they are superman.
  10. So, I was on a clay shooting charity day yesterday and the subject of count back has arisen. My understanding is that if you have two shooters tied as follow Kill Miss, Kill Kill, Kill Kill, Kill Kill, Kill Kill scoring 9 : Shooter 1 Kill Kill, Kill Kill, Kill Kill, Kill Kill, Kill Miss scoring 9 : Shooter 2 Shooter 2 wins because he drops his first target last. Have I got that right? Asking for a friend Cheers All.
  11. It’s a weird story. She’s a teacher and so would have gone through some form of higher education. She’s over 40, with children and would have had life experience. But, she’s in an airport lounge heading towards a Country where they will execute you for drug smuggling and she’s holding 4 grams of coke (assuming £50/g) and so she swallows the lots in a re-sealable plastic baggy. Which bit of any of that was going to end well? Incidentally, on the subject of Dubai, I know it’s really new money fashionable to go there but that Country / regime (and the UAE generally) is somewhere you couldn’t pay me to go to. I digress....
  12. I could tell a few stories about auctions and sealed bid processes; the summary is rarely straightforward....
  13. Ditto, I’ve tried 3 different main branded joist / pipe / wire finders and they’re all in the bin now. I know it’s not what anyone is going to want to hear on this thread, but having laminated my first house (and then a couple of years later ‘de-laminate’ it 😆), and having ‘tried ‘em all’ I now know with 100% certainty that whatever you want out of a floor the answer is either amtico or karndean 👍
  14. Cheers chaps - I’ve given it some STP I fuel additive and a bottle of something called 10k boost into the oil. Ill see how it goes but it’s still like two skeletons going at it in a biscuit tin 😀
  15. ME did get the world record yesterday - we had a cracking night out the day before and the day itself was in glorious sunshine. He wants to go back next year with NO5 😀
