  1. I suspect his gesture was also in the hope that you would both recommend and name him
  2. Your bit of news earlier today said, “as many as ten”, which isn’t real that many, is it? I’m guessing that you don’t know of any more than ten, otherwise you would have been on here with it like a shot - unless you’ve been busy boating or something?
  3. Obviously not a referendum, but if anyone wants another vote, I'm fine with that, and happy to support it if asked. If honest, the people at the top, middle, and bottom, of the hierarchical structure of the EU have never noticeably made one iota of difference to my life. It has only seemingly become an issue when all the good things they told us about Brexit gradually went up in a puff of smoke. I dont say "you", because I dont know what you said all those years ago. Congratulations!! You did good
  4. You keep forgetting that they are politicians. In fact, the politicians dealing with it for you now are completely different to the ones who you thought would be dealing with it for you all those years ago. Hard to believe that you, of all people, believed what they told you. and.... ?
  5. and.... ? What did you achieve?
  6. If you want to talk about something that happened several years ago, the referendum was won by a slim but fair and square majority, gained by lies, deceit, misinformation, call it what you like. If you want to compare it, the Peterborough election was not won by fraudulent means, but it was won by a slimmer majority and, if you like, would have been overturned by a small shift in voting. I really dont know what more you want me to say?
  7. Despite it not being in the remotest bit relevant to my post that started your diatribe in this part of the thread, I've answered the question..... you seem to be struggling with something. If you dont like my answer, that's life in the big wide world. You could read it properly and counter it, if you wish to continue with your twisted diversion. You could always start a new bit of the thread which asks the question you have posed, rather than confuse the issue with irrelevances. I could write it for you if you like? Like I said, you've won, we've sucked it up, so you can stop worrying about us and relax.
  8. First sentence sounds like the pot calling the kettle black Second quote: I've only ever been able to live where I can afford, never "wherever I like", so you are either very privelidged, or entitled, or you have found somewhere unusually cheap to live. Third quote: sounds a bit like a veiled threat??? what, exactly, did you mean?
  9. What on earth are you talking about now??? What I am talking about has everything to do with the Peterborough by election..... of course I mentioned it, it was the crux of my post on it. Furthermore it has SFA to do with slim or huge majoritys. Dont you recall that,some weeks ago, some of the people here took great delight in telling us how the Labour Party were being investigated because they had used fraudulent means to win the Peterborough by election. They revelled in the likelihood that The Brexit party would have won, but for the frauds. Yesterday, it was announced that the police/CPS/whoever had decided there was no evidence to back it up. I posted to this effect and you start talking about margins and something that happened over 3 years ago. If you want to talk about something that happened several years ago, the referendum was won by a slim majority, gained by lies, deceit, misinformation, call it what you like. If you want to compare it, the Peterborough election was not won by fraudulent means, but it was won by a slim majority. I think you are clutching at ridiculous straws merely to be obstreporous. One would have to wonder why, when we are going to leave with no deal in just over 3 months. You will have won, and we will have to suck it up. Enjoy
  10. That was kind of my point..... when you bought/rented your place, you knew, (or could reasonably be expected to know), that the road outside would be busy and polluted. When some/all of the people bought their house alongside the canal, they might reasonably have expected boaters to moor up for up to 14 days, (or whatever the local limit is), and then move on - albeit possibly being replaced by other boaters, but with none being long term or permanent. We live very close to a school and, when we bought the house, I fully expected there to be congestion twice a day when kids were being dropped off and picked up. Other people who live nearby complain about it.
  11. How does that work? Is one end of the strip attached to the battery terminal, then the various wires, (or shunt), connected to the other end of the strip?
  12. Almost certainly the case..... but none of the cars "shuffling past your home" were breaking the law, or the rules of their licence by doing so. If the boats being discussed have a CC licence and are moored in one spot long term/permanently, then they are definitely breaking the terms of their license. Whether that is OK or not, is a different matter, but your analogy isnt really valid in the context, (maybe loosely???). Some kids in balaclavas robbed a convenience store a couple of miles away from where I live a few days ago. Someone got photos of a couple of them, one had removed his balaclava, the other seemed recognisable. There is now a "discussion" on Facebook where some are suggesting they should be arrested and charged, and others are suggesting that this is normal for our society, there are much more serious things to be concerned about, and live and let live. It seems that there are some who think we are all entitled to don balaclavas, fill a shopping bag with stuff, and leave without paying, (or perhaps we are so entitled if we are hard done by in some way, or struggling, or unfortunate - I dont know where that particular line gets drawn?). So it doesn't surprise me that some think that you can pay for a licence and agree to its terms, then ignore them completely.
  13. No! Is the simple and obvious answer. If there was a party that I particularly wanted, you would have seen me crying for a second vote at each of the past 3 general elections, wouldn't you?
  14. Illustrate away if it keeps you amused. When you put it like that you are obviously correct. Labour won the Peterborough by election by fraudulent means, and The Brexit Party were robbed!!! Feel better now?
  15. Where did I say they won it by a huge margin? Some weeks ago it was hourly news on here that the seat was won by fraudulent means, and some people couldn't wait to post up any news item that mentioned it. Just thought some here would be interested to know the outcome. Am I biased towards remaining in the EU? That's not particularly rocket science, is it? But well spotted anyway
