    You always have to play the man rather than the ball don't you? ps agree re Major.

    My experience too. They just said "sorry to see you go" (or words to that effect.) No interest whatsoever.

    Weird Insurance renewal!!

    Don't know about any laws etc, but insurance companies only want your custom for one year. I move my house/car/boat insurance yearly as I get stupid quotes for the second year. One geezer at Direct Line admitted this to me when they wanted a grand to insure my Shogun for twelve months (I had been with them for 22 years house and car, got the Shogun covered for less than half with Churchill.) If you can believe this, I dropped my house insurance from 450 quid to 150 quid, with better cover, under what I believe to be a better company.

    Brexit 2017

    I found giving the DUP a bung in order to buy votes to be rather "vomit inducing." Imagine the outcry if Labour had done thus!! Seems that is fair play though for the right wing? Hypocrites in my book. The right will try and smear Corbyn in any way possible, since he caused them such major embarrassment at the disastrous snap election. They simply release their press hounds on him; the very hounds who fund the Conservative party.

    Agree. That is what it says on the top of our M4:15 Vetus.

    Abuse happens in all walks of life. Take a look at the politicians expense scandal as an example. I do not believe abuse of position is the norm, just as I do not believe that abuse of emergency services by the public is the norm. I do believe it must be stopped where possible.

    I do seem to remember that was mentioned. Obstruction I suspect? Didn't know about the litter laws. People used to regularly throw stuff over the fences of the school where I worked, which included almost anything you can imagine. The police did have a chat with one local but no action was taken. After fitting CCTV it stopped. The funniest thing we ever saw with the CCTV: We discovered a camera was down one morning and got the bloke out to fix it. "It's bin shot" he said. We rewound to see a kid in a house opposite shoot it out from his bedroom, clear as you like, and he was a pupil! Interesting point.

    There was an interesting programme on the radio recently about such parking, and if I understood correctly, the police can do little if somebody parks on your drive even? Seems it is a civil matter.

    I can't speak for all areas, but in the area where I used to live, it was more than the crew's life was worth to abuse the blues. My uncle was one such paramedic prior to retirement.

    We did some rewiring of our local Fire Brigade training centre some years ago. We got to know some of the fire crews quite well and the accounts of attacks on them were a bloody disgrace. Wheel nuts removed from a fire engine at one incident. Kids torching cars down side streets and then attacking attending fire crews was par for the course. Pretty certain that fire engines carry CCTV today? Yes the Preston fire crews spoke of same. That was pretty much my reason for mentioning mental health originally, though you stated it better than I.

    I can't help how you feel, but I suspect it will be considered in any trial.
