Apologies my earlier comment should read "if you are & not "if you ate"! My device has a mind of it's own!

@ LancashieLass
No don't think the highway code has changed to allow that kind of wreckless driving! Take care on the roads folks.

According to the BBC the PM is giving more money towards the border at Calais for policing & cctv etc & The touquet agreement will be renewed. This is nothing to do with the EU it is an agreement between the UK & France & so far so good! What I do object to is Macron suggesting that the UK should take more migrants from Calais? If you ate a genuine asylum seeker who is fleeing a war torn country your expected to claim asylum in the first safe border you cross & that is not the UK.Is it just me who is sick to death of Presidents & PM' s who forget the The Dublin Regulation? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

I was just wondering if the rules of our Highway Code has changed, because these days it seems to me that when cars approach a set of lights and they see them switch from Green to Amber rather than slow down in anticipation of the soon to be Red light, (which I assume still means stop!) they speed up, which consequently means that they will inevitably run through the red light in which they should be stopping for. It also seems to me that cameras are rendered useless and there is no deterrent for rude and bad drivers. Bearing in mind the other day when some Not Right deliberately ran a red light if I hadn't had my wits about me, I very nearly would have been the one to come off worse. What goes around comes around, because, the turd of a driver didn't get very far as the traffic was queuing and had to slam its brakes on.

They have solved the problem on the new CrossRail (aka Elizabeth Line) trains in London, there are no toilets on the rolling stock. There is free WiFi...

In London, the DLR has 'step free' access from platform to train, I find it bizarre that the "new" CrossRail (aka Elizabeth Line) trains require ramps.

"...perfect present for aunt Mildred..."?

Why are your family arrangement so poorly organised that Mildred needs a present?

Seriously, you sound like the one who is suffering so take some action, why do you feel under any pressure to buy obscure relatives a present, mine get a card and that's it. If they don't send a card well, they don't one next year, it's not radical. I spend money on close friends and relatives, but I don't feel any need to put pressure on myself, so I enjoy Christmas.

Yeah, Ryanair are a bunch of money grabbing Aholes.
I booked a flight in December for May this year.
Their baggage policy changed in the mean time and they told me I had to pay more.

B*stards.

Nooo! I live in a house! ROTFL! If you believe that the opposition is the NHS salvation then that is your belief & I have to respect that. There , can we leave it at that? I hate arguing & don't like offending anyone. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It’s the same here in Canada, people are SO polite and PC people confuse that as nice but everyone I talk to that has come here always say that Canadians are so cold! I guess compared to Latinos, Spanish, Italians, Greek, Portuguese etc people from northern lands are as cold inside as the weather outside. It’s an obsession with the stiff upper lip “keep calm and carry on” and politeness but don’t you dare show emotions. I wish I knew why, I have lived here for almost 20 years and still haven’t figured it out
