    Motor Insurance

    Mine did, I did 3500 miles in the 12 months prior to my renewal in March. my normal miles are around 11-12 thousand. I always check every website for prices & have done so for many years, this time round the only way i could reduce my cost was to either reduce the level of cover or increase my voluntary excess.so I ended up paying an extra £50 pa for exactly the same cover yet I had not had any accidents or claims.

    It will be very interesting to see what happens in the new year when the insurance companies will be unable to offer new customers better prices than they offer existing customers . i expect it will mean an increase for everyone..
  3. As with the majority of stuff Shovvy posts it's all about one person. Never been any different & probably never will be, the "ego" is massive. I wonder if anyone could be bothered to scratch the surface what would be found underneath

    Poole Pirates 2021

    Once again you show total disregard for the rules laid down by the "decision makers" who are doing this in the interests of the safety of the majority . It is just another indication of your selfishness & complete lack of concern for others, almost as bad as your rants over brexit.

    A great chat with the O O . i was at the Sheffield meeting ( British Scandinavian World Champ Qualifier) &recall that Ole won his first race against 3 other Scandinavian riders. He finished with 5 points that night but he made an impression with me & i followed his progress via the speedway star when he came over to UK to ride at Newcastle. When he moved to the Midlands i was able to watch him regularly. His move to Brandon was "utopia " for me & the coming together of the C O & Ole was a match made in heaven.He is,as you say very charismatic, & I remember being one of the many recipients of a wave from both him and his wife when they passed us driving down the M6 to wembley with my Ole Olsen sticker in the rear window. My two youngsters in the back were "made up" they really were the great days of speedway .
  7. Whoever he is it's probably best to disregard his posts as he's not on this forum for the right reasons.
  8. Seems to me that Redleader is yet another new poster with "his own agenda".

    Poole Pirates 2021

    My sympathy to all the decent Poole fans.
  12. Don't say that. Just as things are beginning to look a little brighter as we come out of lockdown this sort of news would wreck my cheerier thoughts.

    " Line of duty " TV

    Perhaps the "snout" has moved upmarket.

    " Line of duty " TV

    Really enjoyed it. Had to google CHIS though as i couldn't work that one out & then the Beeb kindly put up an explanation at the end . One thing that does amuse me though is that while all the viewers took time to message the BBC to complain they could have just googled it and found their answer.

    What Offends Me And/or Gets On My .....

    There are so many variables when buying insurance that can affect premium costs. My own circumstances haven't altered in any way since my previous renewal last March , other than the fact that I have gained an extra 12 months of NCB yet the cost has increased by close to 20 %..Can't see where that is justifiable.

    What Offends Me And/or Gets On My .....

    I only drove 3500 miles in the last 12 months against my normal 11-12 thousand due to the lockdowns etc .. My renewal has jumped by £60 this year I did do some checking with the usual comparison sites but there was very little difference anywhere for the same quality of cover, my lowest quote was just £20 below my present insurers price. Car insurance is just a legalised "rip off " , we have to buy it & they know it.

    Tiger Woods car crash

    There might be one positive out of all of this. If when he's fully healed do you think his caddy could remove the pins for him? It might save him a further visit to the hospital.

    Tiger Woods car crash

    I always thought that vehicles had to be constructed in such a manner that this situation was impossible. The front & rear of the vehicle are crumple zones to protect the central area for passenger safety. The power units are mounted in such a way that in the case of a full frontal impact they move downwards away from the cabin area ?

    With injuries like that he will certainly need a "driver" when he leaves hospital.

    Scam Warning

    Hope you didn't sign up to one the many "heir hunter " type outfits, otherwise your cheque will not be as "large " as it might have been.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    On the 10th feb he stated " today at 10oclock I pulled the plug on a very profitable business". Today he states he is sending 50 packages a week to Europe, clearly there is a lie in there somewhere..

    Harry Redknapp, living proof that intelligence isn't required in order to be successful. Gets stuck on the motorway on his way to Sky HQ last night & then admitted he didn't know how to operate his satnav. He had to ring a friend for directions . Then later he referred to the two Czech players at West Ham as Czechoslovakians, a title that was dropped in 1993 .

    Incorporating the hard shoulder into a " running lane" was always going to cause huge safety issues. Anyone with just a few functioning brain cells would foresee that, which makes me wonder what these boffins have between their ears.
