Veteran II (12/12)



  1. I personally would suggest charging all those welded to a towpath inside the M25 £2-£3K per year and say they don’t have to move. This would still be cheap living for them and would be a sizeable increase in CRT coffers. No doubt NBTA would squeal but they would have the moorings they wanted. Would sort out who wanted to live afloat and those that were just freeloading.

  4. I believe the plan is for them to be relocated to the wharf opposite where hopefully not only will there be better access for collection but they won’t be abused as much as the site by the CSF. I have pointed out the original stoppage notice could have made this clearer. If anyone is local and the relocation hasn’t happened in the next few weeks please let me know and I’d be happy to chase it up.
  5. Google adjustable radiator connector....and pick a size that suits....they work well..Used them on my boat for about 20 years after I couldn't source the same size rads....and flushing through involves a hosepipe in at the high point and a one connected to the low point...or a bowl and a pump/wet & dry vac.
  6. As sadly this topic now has strayed so far off topic I suspect the OP has quite understandably given up on the fossils on the forum perhaps it’s time I asked what people think of Polyamorous relationships….this is speaking as someone that’s in closed triad….
  7. I have been shouted at on a recent Pride March by religious types telling me what might happen to me….along with the other 1500-2000 people on the march….thanks to strength in numbers we were able to ignore it and indeed laugh it off….now imagine the same scenario when you are just a couple or single person walking down the street getting abuse…trust me it’s very uncomfortable at the least….yet it’s still happening all too regularly….I have trans friends who were able to be themselves at the weekend thanks to pride….normally they are scared to leave the house because of what might happen to them….and this is a supposedly diverse city in 2023….but apparently we need to “integrate”…..

  10. I recently worked on a masons conference….don’t stress I wasn’t obviously allowed in the hall during the trouser rolling section…let’s just say it was a less than multi cultural audience….less than 1% I’d hazard a guess.
  11. I think most of the Manchester people Im acquainted with live in the marina by Plank lane lift bridge or the one at the bottom of the Ashton flight.
  12. Whilst I’m not familiar with that area there are quite a number of gay and alternative lifestyle people living on boats as in the main….with the obvious exceptions above…in real life it’s a welcoming community. One lifestyle community group I’m a member of even has a canal subgroup. I know of several gay couples and singles living aboard around Manchester …..I’d maybe ask on the Facebook groups as well as they are a little more diverse than here. We agree on very little but on this I do. Well said.
  13. Why is it different to say a group of model train enthusiasts wanting to meet like minded people or those who identify as goths? Or indeed canal enthusiasts? We as humans tend to gravitate towards those with have things in common with.
  14. And you are now on my homophobic list. Nice of you to identify your bigotry. Funny sort of ignore list btw…. I along with my partners had a lovely day at Leicester pride yesterday..it was great to meet up with other non judgemental people who live life for themselves. Maybe you should open your mind too.
  15. I find that statement more than a little condescending if not downright hostile
