Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Well that's that one blown away. PanBiker got it in one. What surprised me was the size of it. This unit is sat atop a of a tower nearly 250 ft high. There were other bits and pieces lying around but they wouldn't fit in the boot of the car. https://www.oneguyfrombarlick.co.uk/app.php/gallery/image/...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

In days of yore the King had a court jester who besides keeping him amused also acted as an adviser. Today the tables have been turned, The King / Prime Minister is now the jester but with no plan of his own consequently he is totally reliant on his advisers however extreme their plan may be. In nor...

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Kev has got it. Seen at Blyth dockyard peeping over the wall. Looks like a mechanical preying mantis. Fibre optic is nuetrally bouyant in water which allows a lighter weight rig to be used. MacGregor crane..

Re: POLITICS CORNER

I see our MP Andrew Stephenson voted to keep his job. Ie: voted in favour of following Johnson's no deal strategy. Jo Swinson summed it up reasonably accurately with "If he is seriously saying the extent of his plan was to try to bully the EU and only get a good deal by threatening [to] leave withou...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

The latest offbeat theory of dealing with the Irish backstop is now doing its rounds. I say theory but anything associated with Johnson is always possible. The idea is that the UK withdraws completely from the Irish customs border and lets things flaw as though it was never there. The control of goo...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Still trying to get my head round Johnson's 'No Deal' strategy. Initially it was he wasn't going to offer anything up for negotiation it was up to the EU to make changes to Mrs May's negotiations which I assume he would then consider. The EU made it clear that there would be no changes to what had b...

Yes I watched the game and its analysis last night. Ding had only to draw to win the series but Magnus had to win and took to many risks away from the established line. Ding played a good game considering the speed they had to play at.

Re: POLITICS CORNER

We are endlessly being told that the result of the referendum is the 'will of the people', democracy fulfilled. It then became clear that people had voted on promises of big handouts to the NHS, trade deals far superior to those of the EU and to make Britain great again. In truth we were never given...

...but at the same time sticking to Osborne's rules about not borrowing more than 2% of GDP. Perhaps Osborne has finished mending the roof. Here's a new theory of mine to explain why Johnson is taking such a stand on crashing out of the EU without a deal. He knows that it would crash the economy an...

Slightly behind the curve on this but Colne is now sporting some newly installed electric car charging points. These are part of a joint initiative between Lancashire Council (LCC) and BP chargemaster. For me its the old question of who pays for what? LCC appear to get a government grant ie: taxpaye...
