Re: European Second Referendum

Just had keys handed over to cottage at Lake Como at a 'service station' in France. Very disappointed that we aren't "crashing out" on due date. My dog is even more disappointed - she was looking forward to being challenged as an illegal immigrant and then showing her 'settled status'. You hope the...

Re: Electric Cars.

Keep up, Monty, it's a 3! Never seen a 3 but it should be similar re trunk space I would have thought. Never been in the Audi either so my remark was gratuitous. In truth the 3 has a fairly generous load space @ 425 litres but my A6 is the Avant and has a capacious 565 litres. It's perfect for a Fo...

Re: European Second Referendum

There is only one solution to this mess and that's a GE. Deselect the scabs (to coin a union phrase). Not really. Neither the Tories or Labour are fit for purpose. The Lib Dems are no better and no other part south of Hadrians Wall gets a look in. Our system isn't fit for purpose and needs fixing b...

Re: European Second Referendum

Oh, now it looks like a second referendum might happen after all. I honestly think, given some of the recent rhetoric from Messrs Barnier, Junker and Verhofstatd, that there could well be a greater pro Brexit margin a second time. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-latest-news-mp...

Re: The Weather

Where is it you're based, AT? I have a business trip up the west coast soon. If I'm in the area I will pop in. I'm Isle of Skye, about an hour from the bridge :) There's a bridge to Skye? Good God! Last time I was there you took the ferry from Malaig (road to the isles) or over the Kyle of Lochalsh...

You only have to remember the amount of people citing bananas jut because Boris made it up to realise there are more gullible folk out there than there ought to be.
