Re: Déconfinement Phase deux, 2 Juin

With a bit of luck, so will our local tip. Three months worth of bottles and garden waste is going to take a lot of shifting. Happy day. :?

Re: I know it's not right, but...

What do you expect from a nation that elected a nitwit like Trump. Get used to stupid ideas. Once Brexit bites and they become the big saviours in terms of trade the UK will change beyond all recognition.

We passed the "God help the UK" point long ago.

Re: UK Track and Trace - A fraudster's dream

PLease correct me where I've got it wrong. I have only picked up a vague idea of what this is all about. The system that was supposedly still in test on the Isle of Widget is now being rolled out nationwide, tomorrow? And the whole of the UK population is required to carry a smartphone with this App...

Re: And whilw you were diverted by Cummings....

I cant answer your question because I dont know what their motivation was but my previous posting should make my view clear. A simple answer to why 2 gloves were shown is that gloves are nearly always sold in handed pairs which lends credence to your claim that the number should have been half that...

Re: Alan Sugar's message nails the UK press and media to the wall.

Yes, Sir Alan. No Sir Alan. Three bags full Sir Alan.

But its not the role of the UK press to be "positive". Their role is to tell us what is going on and in an ideal world, not be told what to report by anonymous string pullers with their own agenda.

Re: Trump/Twitter clash

All was fine while voters could be steadily, slowly, but effectively influenced (brainwashed) by the mainstream media. Then we get the internet. People with different views of reality now have a platform. This platform has now become a threat to the powers that be. If it wasn't for all the useful fu...

Re: Thinking of visiting the Charentes this summer?

Can we get the cheque if we just stay at OH's derelict house down there without staying at a hotel? That would be sticking to the social distancing and self catering would keep us out of any restos. Win Win.

Re: Anybody used Cascamite glue recently?

It is ok-ish, but does not mix as well as it used to and imo, takes a lot longer to cure ( maybe though this is a positive upgrade as one now has longer to work I guess) Even in UK sometimes I had to use the Tropical grade to slow down the initial set time. Had to always bear in mind the ambient te...

Re: Anybody used Cascamite glue recently?

I have to say, the modern trend for making everything nanny state "idiot proof" and safe may be sensible in some quarters but I'm afraid making things inert enough to be totally non-toxic invariably destroys their intended function. My most recent disappointment was with the beloved Araldite. I trie...
