  1. Britain was originally Wales, Cornwall, Devon, then Brittany was added. Great Britain ( Grand Bretagne) is originally South west England and Wales. As opposed to Brittany ( Bretagne ). Little Britain. Occupied by Britons ( Brythons), who spoke Brythonic. The migration, c3-c6 AD was from Cornwall/Devon and Wales to Brittany. Both defined by the type of British they spoke (Brythonic Gaelic/Celtic. The language of the southern celts ). If ever there was a little Britain it’s Brittany. Referring to Ireland as little Britain is just a reflection of Victorian imperialist ideology, which is where our current artificial politico/cultural idea or social construct of Britishness comes from. The northern celts, or gaels, spoke Goedlic across Ireland, Scotland, Mann and Cumbria. The Norman’s added the term Grande or Great to Bretagne when the came over. The current sub divisions of Brittany ( Armorica ) have many Cornish and Welsh derivations. https://www.quora.com/Do-Brittany-and-Great-Britain-share-common-roots-Why-is-the-name-so-similar
  2. Well, I’ve been in Spain two weeks. New bogie/bolt fine. But before I left Motivation Engineering supplied 4 spare bolts so I can carry spares. Thanks to everyone for suggestions, assistance, and offers of assistance.
  3. Looks as if McQuarrie have conned Brittany Ferries into buying Condor. The reputed price, £300 million, ( not in the report but its what they were looking for ) makes the Steamie look cheap. https://www.itv.com/news/channel/2019-06-24/condor-ferries-sale-imminent/ They've been asking £300m since 2008.
  4. There’s probably a Jo Brand response to that, but we aren’t allowed to think/say it.
  5. Karl Muller is just a deluded conspiracy theorist tin foil hat wearing obsessive. Yes he has a scientific background, but seems to have left it behind. If that’s the best you can do Manxy...
  6. Darren who ran grill pit and timber pit at laurel bank ( and now grill pit at coffee cottage )is still doing shed orders and construction. He has a FB page as Grill Pit, you can Message him via there. He’s putting up my new store shed tomorrow.
  7. Not interested whether the assertions are false. I’m not in a position to determine or take sides. Just interested in stopping the pair of you from being dicks. By answering back you’ve challenged a moderator decision. 7 day suspension.
  8. @RIchard Britten and @paswt - enough. carry this on and you’re both for a long suspension. Understood?
  9. The plague, apparently.
  10. There’s a real howler in the IoM Today/Mananan Festival article/press release. Don’t know if the press release or it’s interpretation by Iomtoday journalists is at fault, but this is pure drivel “The programme sees something very different on Saturday, June 22, with a production of the opera the Sleeping Queen, written by Gilbert and Sullivan, along with the playwright Michael Balfe.” Michael William Balfe was an Irish composer, 28 operas. He composed Sleeping Queen to a libretto by Brougham Farnie. Nothing to do with G&S, who didn’t get together until 1871, a year after Balfe died!
  11. The driver who got taken to court was insured. His insurance will pick up the £4500, as its compensation, the equivalent of damages. What worries me is the thought that the cyclists, with expensive bikes, and the potential to harm third parties, didn’t have insurance. It’s cheap. I’ve got it for my wheelchair. Fully comp. Public liability. The lot. £60.
  12. Of course they had no “extra” costs as it was specified and costed into the contract. Duuh! Talk about spin!
  13. @manxy you say WHO say that 5G is unsafe. But actually they don’t. And what they say about bio electromagnetic effects hasn’t changed this millennium. The World Health Organization has classified radio frequency electromagnetic radiation as Group 2B - possibly carcinogenic. This group contains possible carcinogens such as lead, DDT, and styrene. For example, epidemiological studies looking for a relationship between cell phone use and brain cancer development, have been largely inconclusive, save to demonstrate that the effect, if it exists, cannot be a large one.
  14. But they have, time and time again. But even if you accept that ( which you don’t, I know ) they don’t, by their very nature, prove 100% that 5G or EMR/EMF is safe. That isn’t how science works.
  15. Yesterday, 10.17 am. 4 pages back. Why not use the search function? Or rather than search or research would you rather just rely on random stuff you come across that fits in with your world view, rather than checking that it’s safe.
