  1. Past hour
  2. Always happy to be corrected
  3. apparently motorists drive slower if there's ambiguity over whether it's a road or pedestrian area, much used in holland
  4. Well if Boris has a dastardly plan they are giving him all the ammunition he needs to use it ,that is the EU and the traitors in parliament They must realise at some point in this situation there will have to be a GE if BJ is sincere (i have my doubts) there are potentially 17.4 million votes for him if he campaigns on leave with no deal via repealing the 1972 community act or whatever it is the day after he`s elected

    I didn’t realize that’s how they work hence the randomness

    I imagine that's lifted from Facebook but that doesn't make it any less true. I was in Wetherspoons last week, lime and soda only with the meal as I was driving, and a family were holding their young ?five daughters' birthday there. I like Wetherspoons but wouldn't choose to hold my child's birthday there but they seemed a perfectly respectable family so up to them; I digress. The mother came in carrying what turned out to be a huge helium balloon, unicorn or similar, which was what caught my eye because it was wrapped up and I joked that she was carrying a body. The girl had her birthday princess dress on and headgear and people were arriving bringing presents and she was greeting them at the door as we left. Of a Wetherspoons. Anyway. I don't begrudge her happy evening but that's a vast amount of waste and pollution right there; especially the helium which is incredibly scarce. And you just know that next term at school she will be doing a project on plastic pollution and waste and lecturing her parents for their over-consumption.
  7. In my younger days I used to have sexy time with an older burd from rural Chile. She never wasted a drop of protein & considered it necessary to take a full load. I don't think she'd be too impressed with these price hikes.
  8. You have both anecdotes slightly wrong. The accountants didn't want the cost of designing a new heater for the Allegro, and used an existing design from something else, that made the increase in bonnet height necessary. Another design flaw was the squarish steering wheel. All 1970s Leyland car colours appear to have been based on body fluids and excretions. In the case of the Morris Minor, Renault brought out the very similar 4CV shortly before in 1947, which prompted Issigonis to widen the Minor. The story is that they had already manufactured the first batch of Minor bumpers, and they were still used with an extra 4" fillet in the centre to widen them. Hence also the ridge along the bonnet centre. It was a styling change, also inspired by American styling, although that may incidentally have made the fitting of other engines easier.

    Fairly recession-proof I would have thought, lots of unsold stock for them to buy.
  10. I remember when such a girl would be known as thunder thighs and try to hide them. She's probably the kind of girl who thinks millionaire in their prime footballers should be fighting over her, anything less can clear off.

    It'a also a massive eye opener when you see the RRP for a designer label. I've seen bog standard white shirts made in Bangladesh, indistinguishable to those from Primark, priced at £110 reduced to £30 because they have some designer label upon them. The material was genuinely no better than Primark who charge about £10.

    I read this and thought I should pass it on. If you know any climate change people protesting in your city, please copy and paste to pass it on to them also as a community service announcement to protect our environment After our daughter of fifteen years of age was moved to tears by the speech of Greta Thunberg at the UN the other day, she became angry with our generation “who had been doing nothing for thirty years.” So, we decided to help her prevent what the girl on TV announced of “massive eradication and the disappearance of entire ecosystems.” We are now committed to give our daughter a future again, by doing our part to help cool the planet four degrees. From now on she will go to school on a bicycle, because driving her by car costs fuel, and fuel puts emissions into the atmosphere. Of course it will be winter soon and then she will want to go by bus, but only as long as it is a diesel bus. Somehow, that does not seem to be conducive to ‘helping the Climate’. Of course, she is now asking for an electric bicycle, but we have shown her the devastation caused to the areas of the planet as a result of mining for the extraction of Lithium and other minerals used to make batteries for electric bicycles, so she will be pedaling, or walking. Which will not harm her, or the planet. We used to cycle and walk to school too. Since the girl on TV demanded “we need to get rid of our dependency on fossil fuels” and our daughter agreed with her, we have disconnected the heat vent in her room. The temperature is now dropping to twelve degrees in the evening, and will drop below freezing in the winter, we have promised to buy her an extra sweater, hat, tights, gloves and a blanket. For the same reason we have decided that from now on she only takes a cold shower. She will wash her clothes by hand, with a wooden washboard, because the washing machine is simply a power consumer and since the dryer uses natural gas, she will hang her clothes on the clothes line to dry. Speaking of clothes, the ones that she currently has are all synthetic, so made from petroleum. Therefore on Monday, we will bring all her designer clothing to the secondhand shop. We have found an eco store where the only clothing they sell is made from undyed and unbleached linen, wool and jute. It shouldn’t matter that it looks good on her, or that she is going to be laughed at, dressing in colorless, bland clothes and without a wireless bra, but that is the price she has to pay for the benefit of The Climate. Cotton is out of the question, as it comes from distant lands and pesticides are used for it. Very bad for the environment. We just saw on her Instagram that she’s pretty angry with us. This was not our intention. From now on, at 7 p.m. we will turn off the WiFi and we will only switch it on again the next day after dinner for two hours. In this way we will save on electricity, so she is not bothered by electro-stress and will be totally isolated from the outside world. This way, she can concentrate solely on her homework. At eleven o’clock in the evening we will pull the breaker to shut the power off to her room, so she knows that dark is really dark. That will save a lot of CO2. She will no longer be participating in winter sports to ski lodges and resorts, nor will she be going on anymore vacations with us, because our vacation destinations are practically inaccessible by bicycle. Since our daughter fully agrees with the girl on TV that the CO2 emissions and footprints of her great-grandparents are to blame for ‘killing our planet’, what all this simply means, is that she also has to live like her great-grandparents and they never had a holiday, a car or even a bicycle. We haven’t talked about the carbon footprint of food yet. Zero CO2 footprint means no meat, no fish and no poultry, but also no meat substitutes that are based on soy (after all, that grows in farmers fields, that use machinery to harvest the beans, trucks to transport to the processing plants, where more energy is used, then trucked to the packaging/canning plants, and trucked once again to the stores) and also no imported food, because that has a negative ecological effect. And absolutely no chocolate from Africa, no coffee from South America and no tea from Asia. Only homegrown potatoes, vegetables and fruit that have been grown in local cold soil, because greenhouses run on boilers, piped in CO2 and artificial light. Apparently, these things are also bad for The Climate. We will teach her how to grow her own food. Bread is still possible, but butter, milk, cheese and yogurt, cottage cheese and cream come from cows and they emit CO2. No more margarine and no oils will be used for the frying pan, because that fat is palm oil from plantations in Borneo where rain forests first grew. No ice cream in the summer. No soft drinks and no energy drinks, as the bubbles are CO2. She wanted to lose some pounds, well, this will help her achieve that goal too. We will also ban all plastic, because it comes from chemical factories. Everything made of steel and aluminum must also be removed. Have you ever seen the amount of energy a blast furnace consumes or an aluminum smelter? Uber bad for the climate! We will replace her 9600 coil, memory foam pillow top mattress, with a jute bag filled with straw,with a horse hair pillow. And finally, she will no longer be using makeup, soap, shampoo, cream, lotion, conditioner, toothpaste and medication. Her sanitary napkins will be replaced with pads made of linen, that she can wash by hand, with her wooden washboard, just like her female ancestors did before climate change made her angry at us for destroying her future. In this way we will help her to do her part to prevent mass extinction, water levels rising and the disappearance of entire ecosystems. If she truly believes she wants to walk the talk of the girl on TV, she will gladly accept and happily embrace her new way of life.
  13. I have to say I hired an Astra for a week about ten years ago and was surprised to find it was an excellent car, certainly for that period. However, do they still have the unfortunate distinction of being Britains Most Nicked Car? Because that would put most people right off. I hear it was because they were easy to nick, were easy to drive for teenage scrotes and had good stereos so they could listen to their shit music while undertaking their joyrides.

    I got some great LaCoste shorts for bed time in there. Nicest material and most comfortable pair ive ever had in my life. Dead cheap also. Most the clothes are crap but get the occasional diamond in there.
  16. Have numbers gone down? Some Poles gone back but more have replaced them, Bulgarians, Romanians and others. I really dont see any slowdown at all. There will be another 5 million over the next decade. e The UK is lost. Gone. Over.

    I always find their shops interesting so have a mooch around. Sometimes they have excellent stuff dirt cheap and I've bought £50 ties for £10 and fountain pens equally cheaply. It's pot luck.
  18. Ah right - publicity hungry young woman seeks tabloid journalist for fun and photo shoot.

    I’m bored so nipped in to remind myself of what it sells and it appears to be lots of random shit hell even a couple of hipsters in there can a big place like this survive the internet onslaught and the resescion to come it’s not a small place
  20. It looks as if it was a private conversation on sms that she has leaked.
  21. I have said before that the Multipla must be brilliant to drive and practical, because it as once voted Car of the Year and it certainly wasn't for it's looks.
  22. I'm including the whole of Rushmoor, ie. Aldershot & Farnborough. (though it could be elsewhere - plenty of ex-Gurkhas around Colchester area too. Loads of Eastern Europeans in local schools too. I would reckon on there being 6-8 million recent immigrants, maybe 5 million of them eu. Honestly though, I would not be at all surprised if there were 12 million (including all the children being born here) I really wouldn't.
  23. That’s the only way to counter it I think, to laugh about it and show how ridiculous it is. You could make a few bums shuffle on their office chairs with a dead pan performance. Would be comedy gold. In my last place a chap played the racism card as they couldn’t handle the introspection required to improve their performance. It was especially amusing as his racism card was aimed at about 5 people, all from different backgrounds, countries, religions, skin colour etc.
  24. How to save a fortune on beer. Where are the tablets for this then? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-7595593/Mans-stomach-turned-human-beer-keg-rare-condition.html
  25. Imagine being slumped over a kitchen table with members of parliament behind you with their trousers round their legs and you won't be far off.
  26. There is going to be very little traffic in a cul-de-sac. What little traffic there is would be travelling slowly. Some estates have covenants/ restrictions on hedge & fence height and placement, that hedge on the left causes a blind spot. Almost every country road and lane lacks a pavement. I'm more concerned about the abolition of hard shoulders on motorways.
