    BREXIT - merged threads

    Theresa May not standing as leader in the next general election. So she will be getting us in to a load of do dah and then leaving a sinking ship saying its not my fault. I think she and a lot of other MP's should be on that boat and sail to Russia as they dont obviously believe in democracy and the will of the British people. She can take Corbyn as well.

    bikes

    I had a Guzzi Le Mans for many years, a Mk 1, not standard. It tried to kill me a few times and was off the road a bit but I loved it, so much character compared to a Jap four. Had an FZ750 later, much better bike that did everything well but never loved it the same as the Guzzi. Although did have a GS1000 I was rather fond of.

    Pop up camo hide.

    Ambushing squirrels on feeders mainly. My concern was the windows looked a bit high to shoot comfortably out of compared to a igloo type but as you have a TP you obviously mange ok. What do you sit on?

    Ah, so we do like the Irish Republic did and keep voting on it until the gov gets the answer it wants. That was in relation to the Irish voting on the Lisbon Treaty which their gov lost 53.4% to 46.6%. Keep voting until you get the right result, very democratic!. We've had our vote and Brexit won. Hard brexit is fine by me.

    Have looked at the TP on the net, they look a bit high compared to the igloo shaped ones, the windows look a bit high to comfortably shoot out of? North Cumbria mate.

    bikes

    Reminds me of one of my early bikes, bought as a basket case in boxes. Put in all together and found I had a 3TA engine in a BSA A50 frame so a Tribsa,not a very fast tribsa. So bad I called it Lunge, if anyone can remember it was Malcolms bike,Ogri's mate in Bike magazine. Eventually found an A65 engine for it to turn it in to a 60mph cruiser, still a grot bike but smooth. Had to sell it to buy my first house in the 80's(plus other bikes). Upshot was one day an immaculate BSA stopped outside said house and I recognised the number plate,my old bike with a very proud owner,damn!

    Well said that man. Our constituency voted 70 to 30 to leave. Not sure my MP thinks that way as hes a TM lover. If he doesn't do what we voted for he'll be out. Not sure I want Boris the Bungler to be PM, surely JRM is far better.

    The French yellow vest protests

    Macron must have the same magic money tree to pay for things that Corbyn is going to use if he ever gets in to power. God forbid.

    101 woes

    Yep. Wanted to know what time I was going to be on site, what time leaving, what gun, what vehicle, what was I shooting, what phone I was carrying, what what what? Although where I shoot is rural so there are many shooters, theres always one dog walker who doesn't like the look of a camoed up bloke. As Iv'e said, the time you dont phone is the time you get reported, its **** law innit. Forgot to say. If I was going down to my mates farm to do pest control then I wouldn't bother phoning 101. Its only cos my squirrel permission has got public roaming through it.

    North Cumbria. And my gun was in its slip until I was in situ. So the MOP can only have seen the gunslip not the gun,only an air rifle.

    101 woes

    Typically when I didn't let them know, a MOP rang the police to report a poacher/terrorist/armed man. After sitting in the woods ambushing squirrels for ages,felt the phone vibrate in my pocket(ringing on silent). The Police had been ringing me for the last 20 minutes to ascertain what was going on,lucky it wasn't armed response. The 101 team create a log with your name place and activity so if someone does report you they know its you and not a baddy!
