Re: Brexit Round 2

... laughable, but these are not times to laugh, and the people listening to him didn't seem to care. He talked of switching to non European products being served in his bars, as if this would solve all the problems Brexit poses for British companies. He even called for a general boycott of EU products ...

Re: Kwacky's ongoing Africa Twin Adventure Sport review

I am happy with it but it's being wasted at the moment using it to commute. I'm really glad I decided to keep the Versys for the daily grind. I'm not relaxed enough on it at the moment. With the house move and the shit weather I've not ...

Re: The price of privatising education

Their time will come (again), but for the moment those with the largest credit inherently have the most to loose in the case of a global monetary ...

Re: Audi e-tron - the future

... People will be outraged and want them banned. But it's far safer than human controlled vehicles. Absolutely true - my point wasn't hinged on it being phones (there will always be distractions) - it's the lack of challenge in life for many. Click your fingers and you can have anything these days ...

Re: Brexit Round 2

The death of Britain?

... the shite party politics we have had to put up with for the last 10 years and/or will it make England even more London-centric?
