  1. Yeah, that stretches it a little for Norfolk Police. We have mostly Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra Estates, though I tend to drive the beast. Not many like it but I love it. Great on a straight, not so much on the corners especially with a ton of road clearance gear in the back!
  2. Nowt wrong with a Krispy Kreme! Though Thickthornes Maccy D's is our normal haunt after 1am on a late or night shift!
  3. I'm the one in Blue just about to go after the dick trail blazer who thinks Police are stupid with no idea that he is pulling away far too fast to be doing 70!
  4. My whole family is an example of all of this! Wendy is a 16 year service nurse. She is band 6 so at Sister level and working as a specialist nurse. Bit like a Nursing practitioner she has her own patients who she responds to and see's regularly in the community. They all need specialist care. She earns £26,000 a year and has had a pay cut of 15% over the last 7 years, in real terms (5 years with no increase at all then 6% over 3 years). She just had her pension statement through to find out that 5 years ago they switched her to the "New scheme" which means she can no longer retire at 55 a
  5. Or the fact that the SNP had agreed it was a once in a lifetime vote!
  6. You shouldn't confuse older people mate, especially those who have alcohol induced dementia. Just agree with him and nod thoughtfully. We can get him put down later.
  7. Bit difficult as it's locked away in an airconditioned storage warehouse with 24hr security
  8. Well sink me Sir! It took you your merry time to find my jolly jape! I shall meet you at dawn sir! Toodle Pip and tally ho! For those who don't know what the bloody hell Gazza is talking about I may have adjusted his Signature on his posts a little bit about 2 weeks ago as a jape. He didn't notice and I forgot! But now I am giggling afresh.
  9. Urh! Any Soylent Green with her as an ingredient will be full of piss and vinegar!
  10. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-55081926 Covid crisis could 'cut pay by £1,200 a year by 2025' Hahahaha. This made me laugh. I don't know about you guys but I mainly get paid commission, my basic is......basic. And I am £20,000 down this year on last. So even if I go back to my normal wages next year it will still take everyone else 16 and a half years to catch up with my losses! And thats a "Could cut pay", mines already down by that year to date.
  11. Ok Peeps. So Dad has recently done some interviews and its made him realise how easy it is to jog his memory and get everything down. I am looking for a ghost writer who can do interviews with MJK and then make sense of all his stories and assist him with writing his book. There is so much to tell it would take a few weeks I would suspect and he also has lots of paperwork, memorabilia and pictures etc from the time which needs to be sorted for Photos of interesting items etc. It needs to be someone who is also a big car fan as it helps pull those long ago stories out and helps with the u
  12. I have always been very Anti Conspiracy theory but....... Isn't it funny that we are all being told the new normal is working from home and not going out and then they announce this. Seems like a whole large % of the population will now have their arguments covered "Well you aren't meant to be out seeing customers anyway!". It also means having to swipe an ID card whenever you fill up and I suspect they will introduce Mileage charges as a way to cover the loss in taxes so will have Tracking fitted....oh wait, if you have downloaded track and trace you already have it! I still d
  13. God I have so many queries and points after watching that. The primary one is "Well you have to charge when everyone isn't using their electricity" otherwise they won't have enough power is the implication here! And thats part of the problem. I want to fill up with fuel when I want, and I can with a petrol car, not when the National grid tell me they have enough power to do so! Can you imagine getting half way home and going to charge your car at a station with 2-3 million other people who want to get home and finding out there isn't enough power? Cause it will happen! 97% of the cars li
  14. Poor little loves. Getting all upset over appropriate wording for a song about 19th Century Irish Immigrants in the States and being locked up in a drunk tank. BBC Radio 1 will not play the original version of Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl this Christmas, because its audience may be offended by some of the lyrics. The station said young listeners were particularly sensitive to derogatory terms for gender and sexuality.
  15. My Post from Facebook today: As an Automotive Professional of 30 years there are many issues with this. I could mention the enviromental issues in that if we are all driving electric cars where will the electricity come from? The increase in requirement for power will go through the roof. Whilst I am talking about infrastructure don't expect this increase to come from renewables. Nuclear looks like the only reliable option? Sound good? Nope me either!! Next, You fill your cars up at a pump and it takes 1-2 minutes. Even on a booster charge an electric car will take 45 minutes for an 80
  16. Yup! Nor in a Vauxhall just at this moment. However many of the new ones are now all just rebodied Peugeots which is absolutely fine for me!
  17. Pffft, you're just saying that cause you are embarrassed. You'll be praising the Corsa next and get one with a big tin can for an exhaust and wheels that are too big for the arches!
  18. Anything with a Vauxhall badge shouldn't be seen in daylight........... Just saying.

    Haha. Me too!
  20. But at least if you own a Merc mate, you can look down on commoners, drive 2 inches away from anyone rear bumper and pull out on people then totally ignore the carnage behind you!

    I have gone Diageo and Fevertree. I think people are and will drink more from home for the foreseeable future. Not been bad so far, already up nearly 10% from when I bought them a couple of weeks ago.
