  4. Moored at Whitely Green on the Macc, close to the stoppage. Owner has left his or her keys on the deck. I'm taking care of the keys, I'm on the next boat up. If the owner happens to be on here or anyone knows them, please get in touch. Thanks.
  5. Wilful damage to property might be the most likely route.
  6. Maybe he should be reported to the police. Wilful damage.
  7. That's one opinion but if you averaged the capital wealth across the world with the number of people we'd each have a hut allocated to us. A rather smart hut to be fair, much nicer than billions of people live in, but there wouldn't be heating/ cooling on tap, independent transport or the time and equipment for leisure activities. Human nature is that we care for and protect ourselves and those closest to us first. So, family, then local community, nation, state, with the wider world being at the back of the queue. I won't criticise the notion that the welfare of the entire world, one world one people, is of prime importance. It flies in the face of human nature though so I'd suggest this will always be a minority view.
  8. Some fair points but I doubt many of the existing benefits could be scrapped without a massive struggle. The very ethos of our benefits system is that of grouping people and prioritising one group above another. We can see this with the likes of working families and disabled people.

  10. There's a specific thread for arguments about Brexit. My post was a factual one, in terms of finances. A major contributor to this thread is from America, he may not be aware of the ramifications of EU membership, differences in wealth between member states, and how different salary/ benefit levels can generate large movements of people between the various member states, as we have seen.

  12. Britain, being a member of the EU, must offer the same benefits to all arriving EU citizens as it does British citizens. There are several hundred million EU citizens. If the U.K. set the UBI at £5,000 p.a. this would roughly equate to the average weekly wage in over half of EU countries. While not a legal abuse, the arriving flood following an introduction of UBI would represent a moral abuse, create an impossible strain on public services and ultimately, bankrupt the country.
  13. I'd fit 12v sockets and if possible, replace the fridge with a gas one. Also ensure that all lights are low consuming led's, and the tv is as frugal with electricity use as possible (mine is 17w). Tricks like filling up a couple of bottles of water to make brews while you're running the engine (the energy is effectively free) are worth doing. Running the engine or a genny for hours on end is a massive pain. Why prolong that by having a wasteful inverter going all the time?
  14. 6 years cruising for me, 3 different motor bikes. Current bike is a Honda MSX125, sometimes known as a Grom. It's the best of the three being 4 inches shorter, don't have to worry about uneven stonework in locks. I usually leave it on its side stand close to the boat which is technically against the rules but only once has a CRT chap taken issue. Top box on the back, can carry a 10kg bag of coal and I risked a leisure battery once. I wouldn't be without a motor bike when cruising. The only downside for me is lack of gaps in the hedge in many areas which limits mooring choices.
