    European Union - In Or Out?

    As Europe is topical at the moment - I wondered how the good folk on this Forum would Vote in the upcoming Referendum? Currently, if the Referendum were tomorrow I would definitely Vote to leave the European Union. Anyone else care to share their views and Voting intentions?

    The Mccanns? Whose Fault?

    Is it only me who thinks that there is a concerted effort to whitewash the Parents of Madeleine McCann. I am, of course VERY sorry for them and for the loss of their Daughter, however it cannot be denied that the original fault in all of this lies with the Parents themselves. Had they not left Madeleine alone in their Apartment this would never have happened. I know that my late wife would never have considered going out without our son. Hindsight doesn't come in to it here - the Child should NOT have been left, to all intents and purposes, alone. This is a very tragic incident, however, I often wonder if there would have been the same sort of publicity drive had the girl come from an ordinary Housing Estate. I somehow think not - they would probably have been charged with neglect of their Child/Children. Let's just hope for Madeleine's sake that she can be found and returned to her rightful Parents

    SPECTATOR

    A worthwhile article for the 'Spectator' and worth the read. Maybe it will encourage a few folk who have never heard of Speedway to visit a Track out of curiosity and maybe get hooked as I did all those years ago. I, for one, certainly hope so. Thanks for the Link Philip.

    Quick Update...

    Well, I wasn't confining my arguments only to Chunky. You are right norbold, when you state that Chunky was one of John's minor attackers. There are, however, a few others on here who are not nearly so mild in their criticism, or should I say bullying (for that is what it is). I will not name them because you all know who they are.

    You too moxey63.

    Certainly not moxey63. You are definitely not the problem. I too am pleased I came on today. Believe me, it is a rare occasion these days.

    Quick Update...

    Totally agree. The Forum is dominated by a number of self-opinionated folk. They will crash down on anyone who disagrees with them. Especially, it seems, if you are elderly like John. It is his treatment that was instrumental in my cutting back drastically on my time on this Forum. I have other things to do now. So it is immaterial to me what anyone thinks. I too, communicate with John by e-mail - I would far rather listen to what he has to say than read some of the nastiness to him on here. Anyway - that is my final Post on the subject - unless I feel the need to defend myself.

    Quick Update...

    You've never said a truer word moxey63 - and it is a disgrace. The way someone in their high eighties was treated on this Forum was totally wrong. I used to enjoy most of John's Posts. Anyhow, that is why I don't bother to Post much these days. It's nice to know I am not alone.

    Can't say as I blame him as you are on his back whenever he Posts on here.

    Driving After Dark

    My health and night vision is fine. I preferred driving at night rather than during the daytime. My concentration levels are probably reduced by about 10% though, and to me anyway, that is a lot. Therefore - time to call it a day. This reply is prompted by ch958's comment. With all those 'folk' driving as they do these days, the last thing you need is someone with a reduced concentration on the roads.

    Driving After Dark

    Well, I am 7 days short of being 76 years of age. I gave up driving a couple of months ago now because I felt my concentration is not what it used to be. I did not want to hurt anyone else, or myself, for that matter, and decided the time had come for me to give up. So I did, and have no real regrets about my decision. It's an individual thing, some should pack it in early or some can go on to a hundred if all is well with them. I believe the time was right for me.
  12. Phill, That seems a very good question to me.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Yes, there are one or two critics of our Country who don't even live here but criticize from afar. Shame on them.

    Rhodesia

    He was indeed a super rider Steve. I wouldn't have been sure if it hadn't been for you though.. Keep up the good work. I enjoy your Posts.

    Shame you are just dismissing your home Country. Whatever happened to patriotism?

    Rhodesia

    I thought I glimpsed Geoff Curtis too. Steve. I wasn't certain until I read your Post.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I don't think I am attacking the wrong target. Good for Austria though - more strength to their elbow. Their Leader has impressed me at times, not so at other times - this time he is spot on. Good for him. United Europe - that's a laugh.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    No mention of France I see, apart from Passports. The EU, in general, is proving to be useless regarding their Vaccine response.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I never read the Daily Express old boy. I don't "think" I have something to gloat about - I KNOW IT!!! NO - BUT WE HAVE!!!! As usual from you - no credit on what the Government and NHS have handled brilliantly. I see Germany has totally about-faced on the Astro/Zeneca Vaccine. They are advising that it IS suitable for over 65's now. Egg on the face or what? Now we wait for the idiot Macron to do the same - or - maybe not.......................................

    Ian St John RIP

    Really sad to hear this. I loved Saint and Greavesie back in the day. R.I.P. + Ian.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I haven't posted on here for a while now. To justify my thoughts and contempt for the European Union I give you the idiot Macron, who tried to devalue the Oxford/Zeneca Vaccine. The incredibly slow Vaccination rate by the European Union. Their inability to order enough vaccines for their people. Oh, I nearly forgot - their willingness to cause trouble in the island of Ireland by interfering with the Good Friday Agreement (they never even told the Irish about their plans either). Their President had a very embarrassing time over that. I think that shows just how pathetic the organisation within the European Union is, and how it responds to a crisis. Especially by the idiot Macron saying, for political reasons, how useless the Astro/Zeneca Vaccine is, thus putting off the people of Europe from getting the vaccine, thus costing lives. Now, of course, he has changed his mind - too late - most Europeans will say there is no smoke without fire and turn it down. Can they get any more inept? Yes - all in all - I'm glad we are out.
  22. Could anyone advise the release Date of the CD's covering Riders from the 1960's please? I already have the 1940's and the 1950's and they really are EXCELLENT, a must for those of us from the 'Good Old Days'. I do hope that the 1960's will be produced soon. Cheers Ian

    Plymouth Gladiators 2021

    I would like to congratulate Plymouth 'Gladiators' on the great signing of Bjarne Petersen. I hope the 'Gladiators do really well in the coming Season. I loved the City of Plymouth as a boy, I will follow their progress from afar, with interest. I met a few folks from Plymouth at Brough Park, Newcastle some years ago, we had great craic. Very best of luck to you all in the coming Season. You deserve it.

    Duckworth Lewis for Speedway

    Yup - guess so.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    This is the usual sort of reply expected from the intelligencia on the Forum. Can't win an argument - can only call folk names. Humphrey is well served by his minions. I would think all that Toto isn't representative of most 'Remainers'. Most democrats accept the will of the people.
