    How'd it go, Smudger? Had meeting go on VERY LATE last night and have had to do notes of it urgently. Glad you have an op deadline too.

    Ha! Santa! Well I remember the days you describe in post #16! Talk about bullying, pompous and intimidating men. I had a few run-ins with that ilk but soooo enjoyed the day when the arrogant p***k...

    Well good for you. I would have thought you then might have understood why I found your remark less than funny!

    If you really want to know what I've been doing, it's being on the phone trying to help people who've been badly hit with the storms; who've been flooded; who've got no food or heating or light. I've...

    From what the OP says, he is guilty of speeding and has said he'd pay the fine and take the points for that. What is debatable, given he says he can prove that he was out of the country when the NIP...

    Just get on with organising the wedding and let the insurance co. deal with it. Insurance companies can be very decent. I rolled my car in freak weather conditions a few years back but, as it was a...

    BB, I would echo Smudger's post. We have one ambulance and one crew on a 7 day i.e. 7 x 24 rota and not only do they have to deal with emergencies but also patient transport. Quite often patients...

    You can also use amateur radio in car. I'm making a wild guess that, as the emergency services use radios, it was politic to overlook them. It would be hard to ban them now as many 4x4 response...

    ChopperJockey, yes there are too few cops on the road to police this (and other crimes) but if one is decent citizen, you don't use a mobile when driving. End of!
