The “keep calm....” message used by the plod is wank. That phrase is so 2010 that no one notices it or even makes an impact anymore. 

Time for another rethink. I suggest they go more towards the fag packet marketing, blood guts death, brains splattered across Guthrie’s would be an indelible image.

Cmon then, tell me how it’s stupid. No doubt you haven’t an reasoned argument like the thousand other threads you ruin with snipe comments but little content. 

Await thread ruin with anticipation.

In fact the phrase is so 2000. Taken from a 1940 inspirational poster. 

So yes it is dated and definitely wank.

Sounds very Dads Army to me, and yes it is dated and saying nothing.

The gory side is always hidden where possible from the public as if it does not happen.

That is why I’ve gone from a life long fan to wishing it stopped. I have seen far too much.

Don't know , stand to be corrected ,but I'm told that quite a few "outfits" failed to qualify at the Southern , perhaps because they had to achieve 120% of the time of the leading outfit, bit unfortunate as some had 1000 cc and others 600.

That said the Southern is a 'race' not a 'time trial' like the TT.

just saying:flowers:

Don't understand! Isn't 120% faster than the leading outfit? therefore not possible? Just wondering.

No more than 20% slower than the fastest time. So, to use simple numbers, if the fastest lap is 20 minutes, you need to be quicker than 24 minutes in order to qualify

Not about to ruin any thread but your suggestion to have pictures of dead/maimed bodies is hardly up there with Saatch and Saatch is it

Some old german bloke has photographed and posted the contents of this years £18 programme all over facebook thus infringing TT copyright and ensuring less sales and so less money for safety, get on it Rob...

Why not, they used a dead man for video and posters a few years ago. Corporal Flint will know the details on that one.

fag packets are like a snuff video now, can’t understand why the shock and awe tactic isn’t routinely used.
