    Yes! I had a similar discussion about a year ago. I think I posted about it on here. The boat was tied up on the lock landing, waiting to go up and I walked up to the lock to see what was what. The vlockie raised only one paddle, notch by notch, and when I asked why not both and quicker I got the same reply about not disturbing the liveaboards moored below the lock. We had a full and frank discussion about this. I said he was not using the lock efficiently. He countered by suggesting I need to be more considerate. It did!

    Dunno, but.......... The people who had our boat built keep the pub at Red Wharf Bay, on Ynys Mon. I sometimes think we should show 'Red Wharf' on one side and 'Treath-coch on the other.

    Would that attitude work with the volunteers that run preserved railways? We're still smarting from the dangerous incompetence displayed by the vlockies at Stoke Lock on the Trent earlier this year.

    Which wasn't much good if the lockie was off duty.

    Well it would make a change from shooting civilians like the Parachute Regiment did on Bloody Sunday.

    Bollocks! To criticise Jews for who they are is, by any definition, anti semitic. Full stop, rule off, new paragraph. To criticise Israel for it's actions is not. And that is the root of the problem. I'm not a great fan of conspiracy theories but it is the silly season and the current government is making a right balls up of Brexit, whatever one feels about the result of the referendum. I can't help but wonder where the origins of this sh!tstorm lie.

    DJs? I thought you meant dinner jackets at first ! I used to have a lovely DJ with dayglow orange shoulders and 'British Coal' in big bold black capital letters on the back. I brought it home. My mother hated it. I think she threw it out when I wasn't looking. 😟
