  1. its due for shredding
  2. made the control easy rather than the decisions, except for jet ski man, and key workers needing plaster board to fix boilers, and welders to fuck up welding rail etc etc and steam packet staff we didn't do anything about cos it wasn't malicious, i doubt miss get off the boat and fill up with petrol was malicious either but no no, jail for her endangering everyone like that
  3. you won't get past her goons, evil old biddy she is.
  4. when posting in the capacity as a moderator would you be willing to indicate that on the posting, i never know for certain in what capacity some of your posts are and the line gets a bit blurry sometimes, maybe post official moderator stuff in red text to clarify ?
  5. will be under 18's but over 5's or just every body under 18 down to new born ?
  6. yes, the old keep it rumbling along long enough till the world has forgotten all about it and stop social media chatter all in one little measure.
  7. and it should branch off to burrow head, fuck the ferrys.
  8. sections doesn't necessarily mean the full width of prom, it could have been done carriageway at a time to meet between the 2 tram lines. with no parking on the prom traffic could have flowed in both directions all the time and it could have been one long rolling section or separate sections.
  9. in theory the prom only needed digging up once , whether that was one continuous operation that took 6 months or done in sections over 2 years the plant only had so many hours of digging to to do, the job should have been done in sections which would have been less inconvenient for everyone, the businesses would have been disrupted in sections over a shorter period rather than for the entire duration and traffic wouldn't have been fucked up at almost every junction onto or off the prom at the same time. the logistics people on this ( not that it looks like there are any ) are useless.
  10. so how do you ride on L plates on a 125cc bike legally once you've been disqualified DUI ?
  11. the situation was DUI on L pates on a motorbike riding on a manx provisional licence so yes, they never held a full driving licence as i stated, judge seemed to think a retake of a test was required though ??? there is no test to obtain a provisional licence so even your second paragraph wouldn't apply as you can use manx roads on 2 wheels on a 125cc or less motorcycle on L plates without passing anything other than a CBT another licence related anomaly is a full car drivers licence obtained before some date back in history also counted as a full moped licence , up to 50cc no gears , would that mean you can ride a moped today without taking a CBT as you already hold a full licence ? a bit like the weights and trailer towing lark that is also historical for full licence holders issued before a certain date.
  12. that's about it really, i know someone who was convicted of DUI and ordered to retake their test and they had never ever taken a test to obtain a full driving licence , how do you retake something you have never taken in the first place ??
  13. yes, 1 is the result of the alcohol impairment and then trying to drive , 2 after i passed my test i didn't drive a car for 4 years , kept using the bike as it was cheaper to run and i didn't seem to forget anything with my lack of practice when i eventually got a car. 3 having a licence removed is sort of the point and a good idea. 4 i agree with the awareness course aspect 5 that's just some people but does explain why a retest was bought in to make it harder to get back on the road , skill and abillity will be what they were before the conviction when you first passed your test but the benchmark for passing may have moved. ? but if so people not convicted should be tested to see if they meet the latest standard. the real issue is repeat offenders , no amount of extra training will stop them driving whilst unfit , it's just how they're wired,
  14. and the memory loss of forgetting how to drive and needing to retake a test? the drug and alcohol awareness course should cover the issue of driving whilst unfit
  15. i've got a dyson.
  16. what would the evidence look like ? why check for endorsements before someone takes a test ? how does getting convicted of drink/drug driving make you forget how to control a vehicle when sober ? if i get my maths wrong when i'm pissed i don't have to sit my maths O level again to get my maths qualification back.
  17. by having the conviction and having to retake the test the politics at the test centre can fail you on your driving test to keep you off the roads even longer even if your driving was acceptable, it is a character judgement. it's maybe time for driving instructor vehicles to have cameras all round inside and out so when people taking their test are denied a licence they can ask to see on the video what/where they made a mistake. when you go take your test they check you have a valid provisional licence before the exam begins, fair enough, when i took my car test back in the days of little green licences and endorsements stamped in the back of your licence the examiner checked the licence vas valid AND checked the back to see if there were any endorsements , the only reason to check for endorsements that i can see is to pre judge you on your driving history. i was asked if it was a motorbike accident and i said it was and that i couldn't wait to get a 4 wheeled vehicle as they were safer but i needed transport for work so i had to get a bike to start with, i passed my car test first time after 11 lessons? if i'd have said the endorsement was for speeding, failing to stop, bald tyre and no insurance i doubt i would have passed my driving test
  18. short version please, have sentences gone up or down and by what percentage ??
  19. i'm quite happy to go round honoring people. 😄
  20. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9695159/Enid-Blytons-work-racist-xenophobic-lacking-literary-merit-says-English-Heritage.html i can't wait till they go back to the bible, that should have been cancelled centuries ago.
  21. yes, well known and ignored all thanks to the duty they bring in .
