Re: EU. In or out?

This sentence hidden in the middle of the article is interesting. “The site is one of 10 inland border facilities the government has either opened, is building, or is planning to deal with the full suite of customs, tariffs and duties checks that will be operation from July this year.” It implies th...

Re: How much better can you be?

When I was commuting every day I used to set myself little challenges, like not putting my feet down at all or not using the brakes. Obviously I would stop the challenge if it was dangerous and I did not often manage to complete them. What they tended to do was really make me focus on looking ahead ...

Re: Non-EC or Non-cat UK exhausts and riding in the EU

Last year Intravelled on my bike through 9 EU countries. I was stopped once in Portugal, for what seemed like a routine document check for all vehicles. They were very pleasant and polite, they checked my documents and sent me on my way. The only border, apart from in and out of the UK, which was ma...

Re: Timmelsjoch museum

I went to the museum soon after it opened. It was very impressive, in terms of location, architecture and the bikes they had there. I passed it last summer but due to lack of time and Covid rules I wasn’t able to stop, I seem to remember they had an exhibition celebrating Indian then. Hopefully they...

Re: EU. In or out?

Well in many ways I had more freedom last month than I do now. I and my children could travel to, live in and work in all the other EU countries. Why would anyway choose to give that up, in order to embrace the freedom to be poorer than they were before? Still at least the fish are happy.

Re: EU. In or out?

The greyhounds both look great, Unfortunately all my DNA for a long way back seems to be English. I might try for Irish citizenship on grounds that I have a certificate from the Guinness brewery and all the early SLF and Pogues albums. I think I now own about an acre of Islay as I get a square ft fo...

You would think that a prime minister who encouraged people to vote to keep those ‘pesky foreigners’ out, might actually be able to keep them out when there is a valid reason.
