  2. I'm not saying it is the cyclists fault. Or that they shouldn't be given enough room when passing. But you can't deny that people are more scared of passing them now. And as far as I know its only in the last 2 or 3 years that an actual measurement has been given for passing.
  3. Part of the reason that cyclists seem to cause more of a hold up these days is the new rule for passing them . You see it all the time, people are so shit scared of getting too close they sit behind for ages, and when they do finally pass they nearly scrape the kerb at the other side of the road.

    Axe Man alert

    So he drove from Laurel Bank to Ballig on closed roads, then drove back again, also on closed roads, and you consider that a minor error? OK
  5. “ I know mild cheddar is normally for kids but I am circumcised which means too strong a sensation can cause pain. “ what exactly are you doing to the cheese?
  6. That’s what I was trying to get at. Rather than bringing in new restrictions, enforce existing legislation and use the maximum fines/penalties available. Do that and it would be self financing, at least for the first year or two until the message gets through.
  7. Seems to me the road safety strategy is basically going to be to reduce or introduce speed limits. Over the last ten or more years, a lot of speed limits have been brought in. Is there any info on wether these have brought down accidents? How about hammering drivers overtaking on double white lines, talking/texting on mobiles, blasting through existing speed limits. See how much that improves things over a year or so. Let’s face it, idiots are going to do all the above anyway, so what difference is a lower number on a road sign going to make? It’s lack of a deterrent at the moment that’s making things dangerous, not lack of a national speed limit.
  8. Not any more, they lost their licence a couple of years ago.
  9. Looks like the UK is planning to turn back the clocks 40 years
  10. Was the sailing rough? They seem to lower the temperature if it is, less people chucking up.

    Hosepipe ban

    Fair enough. But that was admitted in a staff meeting.

    Hosepipe ban

    Heading towards the thick end of 50%. And they’re reasonably happy with that figure.
  13. If they're doing 80/100mph at the Creg turnoff they ain't getting round the corner anyway
  14. IOM Gov changed contracts for phones etc. to Sure a few months back, dunno if this will have affected it
  15. Listening to the interview on MR with Richie McNichol, what really pissed me off was the reason the old toilets (which are still there but locked off) were shut was no disabled access. So if disabled can’t use the toilet then nobody can. Bloody ridiculous. Keep them open until new ones are built but don’t stop everyone using them. He then blustered on a bit about flooding in certain tide conditions.
  16. Strange how this comes up just as Gov is considering minimum alcohol pricing Eh?
  17. depends what bike its on, usually possible to get the float bowl off without removing the carb.
  18. take the float bowl off and spray carb cleaner around, then brush clean petrol to finish it off?
  19. Explaining why he needed to buy the paracetamol, he said: ’When I arrived in the Falklands, I had something in my eye which required hospital treatment - anesthetising the eye and lots of prodding around with a cue tip.’ Was Rob Collister there as well?
  20. My vote would be for Mad Uncle Ronnie.
