Re: EU. In or out?

I don’t disagree with your post at all but the problem is that it has gone way beyond that now. I don't think I said anything that would infer it. However, it has gone way beyond that now. This ‘deal’ is only an interim agreement prior to a full agreement by, I think, the end of 2020 but probably be...

Re: EU. In or out?

I haven’t bought or read a newspaper (other than while in a cafe) for about 25 years now.
I do my best to filter out the right stuff from television news but that is becoming more difficult now they have an obsession with bad news or, worse still, celebrities.

Re: Never gonna buy a honda again

Neither were really suitable for me, as an older relatively shorter rider What I am saying is that a trail bike of a different colour is more suitable.. a colour that is lighter in weight and more manageable I assume the colour you’re talking about is orange - I always thought they were very tall, ...

Re: EU. In or out?

Methinks Bercow is probably the biggest traitor. I can’t believe the Speaker should have such power to manipulate government business to suit his personal views and those of his mates. Just had a good Radio phone in that essentially neither an election or a referendum are likely to resolve anything ...

Re: North America, First and Second.

That last sentence is so so true unless you dig deep for higher end restaurants. Being a vegetarian wouldn’t be much fun over a long period like you had. A person can only eat so many Caesar Salads. We gave up on fast food after the first week and just stocked up with rolls, meat, cakes and drinks i...

Re: Huawei in europe and goggle aps

You can say that again.
They drive me up the wall sometimes but the whole county wide family have them so it keeps messaging simpler.
Never had non Apple so I wouldn’t know what I was missing anyway. Rushed Asian kit catching fire or somesuch doesn’t make me want to change anyway.

Re: Hard shoulder penality

I hate stop start on the car. I turn it straight off as soon as the engine is running.
It’s only a moment to get restarted but that easily stops you slotting into a roundabout or out of a junction.
It’s fine in traffic queues though but still becomes slightly irritating in a diesel.

Re: Huawei in europe and goggle aps

That’s an advantage with Apple. We have our phones and iPads linked so contacts, bookmarks, apps etc appear on all four. It works the same with Google and Android too, not only Apple. It'll be a software glitch with the Huwawei phones. Incidentally, Apple phones are made in China just like Huawei.....

Re: Hard shoulder penality

I do know Dixon was fictional :roll:
It was supposed to be a vaguely amusing observation.
But....back then they did just ‘have a word’. It’s too easy now with instant revenue enhancement.

Re: North America, First and Second.

A huge thank you for all the reports.
I have really enjoyed reading them, enhanced where I had been to the same places.
Have a good trip back ‘home’.
