  1. Here's my own radical solution to horn cable volt drop. Mount the horn at the stern and do away with the long cable run completely. There's no reason at all why it needs to be at the front.

  4. I've been spending time sitting in parks and on beaches and I can tell you that all over there are large groups of young people completely ignoring the whole thing. Everywhere you look there's half a dozen or more sitting close together sharing food and drink. As far as they're concerned the whole thing is over and done with.

  6. I think it was last year I was asked for the date of the gunpowder plot so I replied "1605". No, no, came the reply, the DATE.🤔
  7. Not as good as any. The 5g theory is more plausible as the existence of 5g is demonstrably true. It's as good as saying it's a spell cast by sauron.
  8. My local KFC is totally abysmal so unfortunately I can't share your enthusiasm, though elsewhere it's my quick bite of choice.

  10. That was my overwhelming impression of the place too.
  11. British management being what it is they will be unhappy with the crippling of that most important of management tools, shouting. In fact, a lot of management may end up superfluous without it. "Resistance is useless!"

  14. Not yet brewed, advance order only. Got mine ordered 😊
  15. True, but this is not the political section of the forum and the intention is comedy not a party political broadcast. One can get away with being a bit political with the saving grace that it's a joke. It's not for shoehorning a 100% political point in by representing it graphically. Especially not when legitimate opposition to the point is censured as political comment.
  16. Here's a good example which is first and foremost a joke, with a political dimension. Here's a blatant, contrived selective use of data to make a political point without even a pretext of being a joke. It's not difficult to tell the difference.
  17. That's it in a nutshell. A graphic made by going to a list of deaths by country, starting at the bottom and adding up until a contrived political point can be made should not stand whilst the objections are declared political. These things come from one or two posters who it should be obvious by now are driving a political agenda. First question surely is "is it amusing? Or is it an unfunny condemnation".
  18. No but it has a great deal to do with the ill feeling arising. I can assure you confidence there is not. I have myself posted pictures which originated from a local party considered to have crossed the line so far that the local party withdrew them and the national party issued an apology but they're ok here, which conflicts somewhat with... Quite right, filter out political comment, it doesn't belong here but that can be graphic as well as textual. Let's stick to funnies with perhaps a political dimension (inevitable) rather than politics without the saving grace of humour.
  19. It's part of our national character that we look for ways to laugh in the face of disaster, hence the multitude of amusing memes. Some extracting the proverbial from the behaviour of fools, ie the toilet paper panic. Sometimes the gaffes of the powerful, ie the Cummings affair. When this extends beyond that to political comment devoid of humour, using this disaster as a convenient and almost apparently welcome weapon to further an individual agenda then those who don't share that agenda are going to raise their hackles. The acid test in my opinion is whether a post is a joke, political or otherwise, or simply political sloganising. Moderation has in my view been very poor at telling the difference and that's why this thread has become political.
