RE: Now Thomas Cook gone bust

Forgot i posted here... a big shout out to Love Holidays, they refunded complete holiday within 5 days, they gave a £50 discount code (something they didnt have to do as it wasnt their problem).

Managed to rebook a different holiday, so kids and wife are happy!

i did note that Ryan Air increased several seat prices from £40 to over £400 per seat... to make money out of others misery! I will never fly with them again... immoral fcukers!

RE: [VIDEO] Captain Picard returns

Sadly Seven of Nine, hasnt aged well... no sign of the spray on spandex uniform!

RE: [VIDEO] BBC is making a Victorian-era War of the Worlds TV series

looks like this could be good... but knowing the BBC they have probably messed it up!

RE: What`s a good brand of fridge freezer these days?

Strangely we have a LEC fridge freeer, which we bought from Co-Op back in December 1993, when we bought our first house... its releegated to the utility as a beer and icecream fridge/freezer, but having only ever had to change th bulb twice in 26 years, i think i have had my monies worth out of it?

The main on in the kitchen is just under 10 years old, a Samsung American style with mains water and ice... i reckon at least twice a year i have to take the back panel off the inside of the fridge, as it just freezes up, and then the fan blades catch making a right racket.

No idea why it does it, but not calling an engineer out, as would likely cost more than buying a new one!

Had a similar experience with a tumble drier last year in that the start button was failing, took the front off and it was clear the plastic panel that connects all the buttons behind had snapped, ordered a new plastic panel, looked like an airfix kit, £6 and problem fixed... engineer wanted £80 call out, before parts,

RE: Now Thomas Cook gone bust

RE: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (Netflix)

one of my favourite films as a kid... there was a real thing for animation movies, Krull, Never Ending Story etc at that time, butthis was the best!

RE: What3words

i looked at this a few months back... whilst it sounds like a good idea, the bluelight emergency services, and those volunteer services have not decided to universally adopt it.

"Agreeing to this trade deal would also put farmers in the UK at a huge disadvantage. In order to export their chickens to the EU, deal or no deal, they will need to continue to obey EU rules, we may find ourselves in a situation where most of the meat in the UK is exported to the EU and most of the meat we eat is imported from the US.

Not sure how that is in the interests of UK farmers?"

Or perhaps the reverse, instead of flying food in from around the world because it is cheap, we will start eating food produced in the UK.

Perhaps instead of paying hypothetical 20-30% higher prices for good manafactured overseas, we will start being less wasteful, or supporting uk manufactured products.

The public voted for Brexit... lets stop scaremongering on all the negatives, and embrace the potential of putting the Great back in Britain.

Just my humble thoughts.

RE: [VIDEO] Don't need conspiracies to worry about contrails.

Had those money chutes in a Woolworths store i once worked in

RE: Oh My God

Its how they sell them... obviously men can buy pink too, and ladies can by the standard black, or the many varients in camoflage distressed patterns.

Buying a gun in many US states is like buying groceries!

They have never gone away... and anyone who believes that really needs to wake up and smell the coffee!

RE: Anyone online, need a shoulder etc

I would suggest as police are already involved, you log everything, writed down what you remember.

As it happened at supermarket, i assume CCTV is being seized as evidence, this will hopefully corroborate you version of the incident.

Hopefully this will be the end of the incident... but i doubt it.

You can always consider consider taking precautions... panic alarm, cctv covering your home, vehicle if parked on the street?

If you get on with you neighbours, let them know, as i am sure they will support you by keeping an eye out.

RE: [VIDEO] What gig did you just go to?

Lets Rock at Powderham

Nik Kershaw, Thomas Dolby, Go West, Betty Boo, Tight Fit (bloody awful... everyone though it was a joke), Belinda Carlisle, Billy Ocean, Hot Chocolate, Johnny Hates Jazz, Belouis Some, Owen Paul,  Musical Youth, Snap (the standout act... were brilliant) 11 years of this show, and the first band to do an encore!

Human League were the last act, sadly we left before they got on the stage as the girls were getting tired.

RE: [VIDEO] Rambo: Last Blood

i hope this delivers what the trailer promises, RAMBO, John J back to his best, the dark real story... not some of the sillyness of the sequals (as watchable as they were)

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

this is the start of a campaign to discredit him as the highest profile and leading candidate.

I really hope it backfires on those stirring the $h1tty stick.

Its old news... and serves no purpose other than to muddy the waters, and feed the tabloid rodents, discrediting this once great country even more!

RE: Weird car sales question

argue the toss with them... i always get additional items, 3 years free servicing, spare full size tyre... on the one i bought in January... and 0% interest!

RE: Policing question.

I stand corrected on the endorsements, points side of it

definitely a FPN - i think its now £50 maximum (November 2017) for cycling offences, but stand to be corrected.

Section 36, Road Traffic Act 1988
On date at place, whilst propelling a pedal cycle failed to comply with the indication given by a road traffic sign, to which Sect 36 RTA 1988 applied, namely...

in the case of the question 'a red light trafffic sign'... (many others apply)

lawfully placed on or near a road, namely ... road & location.

The cyclist if not issued a FPN can also be reported often referred to as NIP (Notice of Intended Prosecution) and then will be summonsed to court where can be fined upto £1000.

RE: Policing question.

sorry, late to this

Quote:
Under the Road Traffic Act 1988 s.36 and the Traffic Signs Regulations and Directions and Directions 2002 regulations 10 and 36(1), road users must not cross the stop line when the traffic lights are red. This offence, also known as ‘red light jumping’, applies to cyclists as well as motorists. The maximum penalty for red light jumping is a £1,000 fine and six penalty points endorsed on the driver’s licence however, in most cases, a driver will get a Fixed Penalty Notice (On-the-Spot Fine) of £30 whilst the maximum would only ever be imposed if the Fixed Penalty Notice is contested and taken to court. The punishment is also applicable to cyclists who, if caught, can be issued a Fixed Penalty Notice of £30.


so essentially if you have driving licence regardless of you mode of transport you may fined and points!
