  1. Didn't pay any delivery, just the £5. Thanks to @rustydiver for the introduction to Owatrol - you might be interested in this forum link
  2. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jun/19/disappointing-and-deluded-imam-lambasts-tory-hopefuls-on-islamophobia
  3. Yes that's the one, the 'chemist' said this would clean paintwork. Will try and have a go tomorrow as we've got a few stains on the paintwork. I'll report back Sorry, I confused you. There are two Owatrol products I was talking about. The Paint Restorer isn't recommended on white/off-white paint. But was told to try Net-Trol wood cleaner to clean the off-white paint
  4. I wouldn't use Bar Keepers on paintwork, it's got the abrasive consistency of Vim/Ajax (remember those ) For once I can help here, take a look at https://www.owatroldirect.co.uk/marine/narrowboat-maintainance/ We've just bought a sample bottle of Awatrol Net-tol for £5, delivered the next day. It's a wood cleaner (it didn't work on the wood above), and colour restorer. My husband spoke to their 'chemist' who said the wood cleaner could work very well to clean paintwork stains. Our problem is our boat is off white, and we wanted to use 'Owatrol Paint Restorer' on it, the restorer restores pigment in the paint, but because there's not much pigment in white, the restorer could cause our off white paintwork to go dark - not what we want. Can I just say, we've only just bought Net-tol wood cleaner last week, and like @sharpness we've not yet tried Net-tol yet
  5. Deeply embarrassed I hope! The irony of a person being invited on a programme to call out Islamophobia, when this guy is a raging antisemitic.
  6. This was on a breakfast programme this morning, I never heard it.
  7. It does appear the BBC's vetting department messed up somewhat too. The Imam who responded apparently has deleted his twitter account. Journalists took screenshots.
  8. When we had our galley refurbed, the make of gas cooker we wanted was much cheaper from Ely, luckily the boatyard we used matched Ely's price. Sad for Ely Chandlers, but also sad news for consumers.
  9. Bought a pot in B&Q today and had a go. Mixed it into a paste and painted it on with a brush, eventually I started putting a bit more effort into cleaning the wood, working the powder into the grain with an old nail brush and scrubbing. Think it's made a difference. I'll give it another go tomorrow. When it's dry, I'll sand the wood, and give it a couple of coats of yacht varnish. Thank you @WotEver, and everyone, looks like Barkeeper has done the trick Knew someone on here were know some 'magic'.
  10. The painting reminds me of Norse traditions, showing a large eagle's / dragon's beak, before the eye.
  11. Ahh now that's going to be a problem. Perhaps this will be a continuous painting job for a few hours in the hope the liquid soaks in... but first of all, is to get the chemicals. Thanks for the warning.
  12. It's about having confidence in the UK. There was a question on here a couple of weeks ago about UK built vehicles.
  13. You sound ever so angry? We don't know what will happen yet, but I know what the path will be if we stay in. The EU is not static, re the Deutsche bank. Wonder who will be bailing them out?
  14. Hi Welcome! Well us Brexiteers will welcome you, but 'tothers are as bad good as twitter remainers 😊

    From mooring on Friday, to this morning, and having a relatively dry 24hrs, the Coventry looks to be over an inch down. Just enough to get us stuck on something massive under the water where we were moored. With grateful thanks to a couple walking their dog, the boater moored behind us, and two passing boats, one hooked our bow line, and the other came along side and took our stern line, we budged free! Thank you to all three boaters.... so glad the owners of 'Rehab' were in Rehab! 😂👍
  16. Yes I do. When Farage left UKIP he thought the job was done. Why would he, or anyone else take a database with them?
  17. They didn't have the data, Farage and Batten were opposing each other.
  18. Just had a google, apparently someone has worked it out that 4% of men are raising another man's child. I'm guessing distinguishing features might give the game away before DNA, I don't know. We can't keep progress at bay, probably before the end of the century everyone will be DNA'ed for medical reasons?
  19. Can't say I mind having DNA taken at birth, that really doesn't worry me if it keeps people safe. Those ancestry/genealogy sites where people can get their DNA tested for tracing their ancestry, I believe authorities are using their databases to find criminals. So anyone with a dodgy family should be aware 😬 https://www.newscientist.com/article/2182348-police-can-now-use-millions-more-peoples-dna-to-find-criminals/
  20. Think you've got a point there, I was shocked when a Met policeman friend, advised his post graduate son not to join the force, he said his son was the wrong gender, the wrong colour, and wasn't gay, therefore he wouldn't get on in the force. His son in the end went into the prison service. Think the authorities are trying to do the same with the Army, patriots apparently could be trouble, who knew?
