    Dominator / FMX
    I havnt posted for a while because I got pissed off when the arsehole danish dickhead I hired made a balls up of my wiring and torched my CDI.

    Chatter
    Today was Trevithick Day in Camborne they hold it every year ( for the last 30yrs). There was the full size engine, small dinky stream engines and the occasional steam car. There was a good turn out of engines although not as many as the last few years not sure of the reason for that. All the...
  8. Traffic warden fraud?...Have a look at this for me.

    Chatter
    Pictures sent with PCN from local council. My daughter has a parking permit (on the dash under the PCN) and never bought a ticket because she doesn't need one! Is that finger holding a ticket on the OUTSIDE of the screen? I know it's not that clear but can anyone see any sign of that ticket...

    Chatter
    Yes, I know I'm always banging on about them, but i felt compelled to repost this contribution to a discussion forum to which i am subscribed for work purposes. It concerns the impact of PL closures on elderly people in rural Gloucestershire and the official response: "We in Gloucestershire...
  11. More H&S nonsense

    Chatter
    Liskeard barber's megaphone parking warden alerts silenced. So, there's this enterprising barber who was using a megaphone to warn local shoppers of parking wardens in the area, and the council have put him on a "cautionary list" of people they see as a threat to their workers' health and...
  12. More stupidity......

  15. Danger Mud on Road!!!

    Riding
    Remember these signs that Farmers USED to put up when they gave a sh1t about anyone else??? I am sure some clever dick is going to come up with some legal Bullsh1t as to why they don't put them up anymore. To me it's just bloody ignorant, if we ever drag mud on to a road outside a building...

    Chatter
    Here in Edinburgh the authority to "police" the greenways (bus lanes) has moved form the Police to the local council and in order to extract the maximum amount of cash from motorists they have installed automatic cameras. One bit of fallout from this automated issuing of fixed penalties is...
  17. Bl**dy politicians

    Chatter
    So, the "coalition" (read, Tories with the Liberal Democrats making up the numbers) are taking a pasting in the local council elections - pretty bleedin' obvious really - and "Labour" coming out the "winners". The thing is that in Wales it is the "Welsh Labour Party" that is doing the winning...

    Chatter
    Saw this in town on Tuesday - bike getting a parking ticket for being just outside the bike parking bay but not quite in the next car parking bay. Some Yen Powell-type council person ;) has painted those double yellows. They're not two feet long. IMG_1580 by whealie, on Flickr
