  1. In this case the easiest answer is perhaps asking boaters to leave the lock full and top gates open.
  2. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    You have repeated my point. "you can chose one that matches YOUR beliefs". Not match your beliefs to party policy. Policies change and one can not be expected to change personal principle to suit. In public the party member should support agreed policy but that doesn't prohibit them from seeking to change policy from within, nor from voting their conscience in the privacy of the polling booth.
  3. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    I can't agree with this. Support for a political party should be because they agree with you, not because you agree with them. For the members to shape the party will always involve a lag between changes in grass roots opinion and policy. Signing up to a top down doctrine isn't politics, it's religion.
  4. The Ring

    Yes I get that now.
  5. The Ring

    Arts program? Surely a canal is civil engineering not art?
  6. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    My country right or wrong? At some point there has to be room for principle. Oskar Shindler the lowest of the low?
  7. Mooring in Bristol Area

    My favourite lock though. Grab a pint to drink whilst working through.
  8. London gets tough

    Asking for trouble then. No home mooring, ergo, no hire licence and public announcement of the intent to rent it out. One born every minute.
  9. Brexit 2017

    We already conform to a number of standards for a variety of markets. I don't see the UK having no say in California standards being a problem for jaguar cars or triumph motorcycles being sold into that lucrative market.
  10. London gets tough

    Either a chance for six months free boating or a dimwit asking for their licence to be revoked. "Or so ' is a bit dubious though.
  11. Brexit 2017

    I would agree that constant reference to the wars of the last century is irrelevant. The only such reference I have encountered outside this thread was the young Polish woman who felt that brexit was a betrayal of the debt of gratitude we owe to Poland for their help against Germany.
  12. Brexit 2017

    Why risk being Australia when we could aspire to being Greece? Stupid to turn our back on all that inward funding from the EU.
  13. Brexit 2017

    I suppose a lot depends upon how many want it to fail and how determined they are. In twenty years we could be Australia or we could be Greece.

    Apropos of nothing, I remember when working in the factory at Castle Bromwich, a big sign saying. "No forklifts passed this point" and thinking what possible use is that to anyone unless they are in pursuit of a stolen forklift.
