Re: EU. In or out?

I wonder if Johnston, Gove and Davis etc will get a similar write up in the history books? Good question; and if they do, will the era be given a descriptive - similar to "the Reformation" or " Edwardian". Let's have some suggestions - I'll start: "The Retardation"; &q...

Re: Uk import duty shocker!!

Just had an Ebay purchase arrive from France. It had new additional French customs documents attached - about 6 !!! :shock: :shock: :roll: On this occasion no duty was levied, neither did the Seller charge me for the extra paperwork, he probably didn't realise. :D However, clearly acres of Finland a...

Re: EU. In or out?

All very interesting and shows how tumultuous those times were. If the other invasion hadn't taken place, would William have been defeated? Probably, IIRC Harold had to double time his battle weary men from the North to the South to face Wiliam. It was far from ideal. Correct. The Northumbrian Prin...

Re: EU. In or out?

I can only paint a picture from where I stand , sounds like it should be attributed to someone famous...maybe I will be some day. Everything in history is selective, ever been to the Tapestry in Bayeux? They have a very different opinion on 1066 to the English. Yep, seen the tapestry in Bayeux. A f...

Re: EU. In or out?

My view on the Union is changing with time because I'm so sick of carping Scots. Scotland historically has always attempted to shaft England and allies itself with France. Good, we'll keep on carping then... Ask yourself why Scotland has sided with France against England, could it be due to the inv...

Re: EU. In or out?

I'm so sick of carping Scots. Scotland historically has always attempted to shaft England and allies itself with France. Let's have a full UK vote about letting Scotland go it's own way. England will be financially better off and we can ban haggis and bloody bagpipes So to get things straight you w...

I get that Dave, however when decisions as important as Brexit and Independence have been influenced by a myriad of lies and d...

Re: T700 v KTM 950 Adv

Bob, you failed to mention the T7 aesthetics-or lack of. A good graphics set almost makes them acceptable , almost but not quite. I thought the 790 was grim looking but the T7 makes it look like a supermodel ! The 950 was a design classic, functional in the extreme, won Dakar until the rules change...
