  1. Because, the tories being a squabbling shambles with umpteen voting against boris, the only option was to let "the best of a bad lot" through, to at least have some restrictions. If Labour had voted against then the tories who want us all to die would have had their way, no restrictions, darwin rules.
  2. My Boat is 5 miles from my home, currently moored in Todmorden, in the West yorks tier 3 area. I live in the Gmcr T3 area adjacent. I wish to move my boat up to my mooring, 100m inside the GMT3 area, across the border. The rules say I can't travel across the boundary.
  3. A wonderful beast on snow and ice though! Flipped on a left bend not long after I got it, '59 Triumph Thunderbird. Nearly flipped on a right hand bend once, misjudged a nifty rear wheel lock and slide. Used to have a canoe cradle on the sidecar chassis, swappable for a seat in a box. My favourite vehicle.
  4. We used Capstan packets, smoked em first. Cough!
  5. Certainly muddied the waters there @hudds lad. Patent it then claim on all the floating sheds in Londonland.
  6. So you know Steve? He came to my first circus class at Oulderhill school in Rochdale in 1989 or so, hasn't he done well for himself. 3rd in BGT! Done my bit on TV, Timmy Mallet stood on my shoulders ( he left marks) and I met Michaela Stratton aged about 17 and taught her co presenter Tommy Boyd scarf juggling , live.
  7. I've not worn slap for many many years. I started and returned to being Fool. A far more important job.
  8. To be truly original I'd have to photoshop a couple of crayonned old working boats on to it.
  9. Well It would be if @TheBiscuits had done anything other than steal my art and try to gain profit and kudos by it. Where's @kris88, he knows the rules.
  10. Do you know anyone with a comical penis to model for me? Mine would require too much ink.
  11. Having imparted some artistic merit, I now claim copyright.
  12. Was this edited to make it better or worserer? I dread to think what the original was if this is the improved version.
  13. I know exactly what you mean, so do CRT, which is why they went a different way. It's a power and control thing.
  14. Strictly speaking I think they do have a few members, the boaters reps etc that we voted for a while back. They appoint Members of the board. They do seem toothless otherwise.
