  1. 3D zebra crossing

    Clever, but very dangerous. If you know the area it will have zero effect. If you don't, panic may well ensue. Hard braking at least, swerving and mounting the footpath possible! George
  2. Trump

    The state also has nuclear weapons but the yanks seem to have the will to stop private ownership of them. George
  3. Trump

    Long ago, any sensible judge in the USA would have interpreted the amendment to say that citizens were entitled to carry the weapons applicable at the time, i.e., muzzle loading black powder guns. The idiots may have been able to take out one person but mass shootings with automatic weapons wouldn't be possible. Sadly, judges in the US are political appointees. George
  4. Never get anything on the prop again!

    Some years ago I followed a stern wheeler up the T & M, it may have been this one. Pretty, but desperately slow! George
  5. Brexit 2017

    Often been said that when a new motorway enters an area one of the first casualties is the local bakery as the bread then comes in on a 44 tonner from one of the baking giants. George
  6. Brexit 2017

    Something even the threat of Brexit was supposed to stop. George
  7. Brexit 2017

    Tescos do the same from Daventry, but at least they have the good sense to put the stuff on the train to/from Scotland, South Wales and London! George
  8. overseas aid

    By coincidence, today's BBC lunchtime news made reference to allegations of underage girls at the sex parties in Haiti. First time it has been mentioned since I first saw it. George
  9. overseas aid

    Which is why I was cagey and a bit hesitant about bringing it up. When you are sitting watching the evening news and you catch something like this,it is difficult to provide a link days later. George A quick search finds this item, the end of which mentions "alleged under age" prostitutes". http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/02/12/oxfam-scandal-deepens-allegations-sex-aid-abuse-charity-shops/ I'll see if I can find more, but as I said, I believe aged 8 was mentioned once on the TV before apparently being omitted from later bulletins.
  10. Brexit 2017

    So more likely that the decision to grow fruit in that area was a bad one and his business, but not the land, has gone to China, like much UK industry in the era of the EU. George
  11. overseas aid

    I stand to be corrected and I will happily withdraw if wrong, but when this all blew up I thought I heard a news report saying an 8 year old girl was involved. If that is the case, it is far from minor. George
  12. Brexit 2017

    It all depends which EU subsidy will give him the best return. George
  13. Brexit 2017

    Fair enough, I could have worded it clearer. I accept the fact that the UK leaving the EU has raised a question in the minds of some former UK residents who now live in the EU. Teresa May attempted to solve any doubts a long, long time ago but was rebuffed by the EU who wished to use such people as pawns in the negotiations. What I meant to say was that any decision made by the EU will not affect, or be binding on the UK once we have left. George
  14. Brexit 2017

    Careful Phil, remember the EU army will need conscripts to fight their next war. Who better than a few thousand UK Brexiters! George
  15. Brexit 2017

    So this case is nothing to do with the UK leaving the EU and will purely apply to UK expats living in the EU. No problem. George
