    Red Diesel

    HMRC were at Norwich Market a few years back dipping landys and they tried to dip my discovery . "But I've just left the calor gas showroom " says I "doesn't matter!!" says the smug clipboard man "It's a v8 petrol running on LPG " I smirked back

    Pressure washer

    might be worth trying a stiffer hose pipe. I found that when using a water butt the suction from the pressure washer can cause a cheap hose to pinch off the water supply

    Channel invasion

    The radios are small and cheap Yes obviously the "migrants?" are just Taking the "P**&" but a ships captain would have to absoluty certain a maday was false to ignore it ( Masters have been send to prision for deliberately ignoring life rafts/ mayday calls) The obligation to render assistance to persons in distress at sea and deliver them to a place of safety is clearly established in the international law of the sea. “Rescuing people in distress is a duty placed on everyone at sea, that applies whether in territorial or international waters, and regardless of the legal status of the people in distress or the circumstances in which they are found”

    Channel invasion

    Most cargo ships in the channel will just pass on the mayday to the coastguard ,make a log entry and carry on. It would be bedlam if oil tankers had to stop in the dover straights.

    Channel invasion

    The problem is that the migrants are making "MAYDAY" calls once at sea and they know that nearby ships have to render assistance or risk losing their masters ticket (SOLAS reg 33).

  11. One christmas / new year I was on duty and got a phone call from an officers wife in married quarters saying their downstairs toilet was blocked and wanted me to call out an emergency plumber ( at vast expense ! ) I said "downstairs toilet ! Does that mean you have an upstairs one ?" "yes but we have guests staying" she replies "see you in the new year!" I said and put the phone down 😀
