    2021 GP Series Dates

    Don't be so sensitive, perhaps I should have said not an attractive area for walking around but the comparison was with a beautiful city centre all within an easy walk. Most fans want the experience, diehard fans want the best racing. For example F1 is awful racing but we'll supported.

    No-one wants to walk around houses though. Cardiff has such a great feel on GP day, the city is easy to walk around, easy to get food and drink plus its easy to get to/from. Belle Vue can't come anywhere near that experience. This is where promoters go wrong, people want atmosphere and an experience. Plenty of great racing tracks have struggled to get fans in.

    Belle Vue is in a dump of an area, nowhere to walk to and stadium facilities are awful. I assume you were joking.

    Would be a great venue though.
  5. Yes, they are the worst spreaders. My Father in law went into Basildon for a partial hip replacement as he fell and broke it. He was Covid negative on entering hospital, had the Op the same day and we were preparing for him to come home 6 days later after he'd had physio/done some walking. On the 6th day he tested positive for Covid and died 5 days later. We so wish we'd just kept him at home, in pain, until he'd had his vaccination.

    OK. I'd have thought pay in premiership would be higher than in championship. No wonder people want to double down then.

    Money will be the difference surely.

    So do I. Should be lower than that.

    RIP Olle Nygren

    Sad to hear of his passing, condolences to Linda. I went to many of his schools in the 90s progressing from his bikes to when I bought my own and progressed to STR and league riding - he used my photo for his promo leaflets. Great character, loved fried chicken, a drink or two and the odd swear word! Such a talented racer across many disciplines.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    The government do not routinely give out commodity codes to businesses as they should declare their goods under the code given in the tariff - have you asked for a ruling because you're not sure what code to declare?

    European Union - In Or Out?

    My response was solely about lorry drivers coming into the UK.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    And you asked if the same thing would happen inwards to the UK. Doh!

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I don't see where this is biased - certainly not on the scale of commercial news sites/companies. It references the Covid tests, the pictures says it''s from December and the article says the vast majority of drivers have the right documents and are ok? It's merely reporting the £32k fines from 113 cases. It's a topical issue. Are you sure you are not biased towards the BBC?

    Swindon Robins 2020

    Such a shame. Obviously it wouldn't have been kept since 2017, not something described as a stadium - a fence on pallets maybe. I can only hope they do return in 2022.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Nope, our border controls are weaker in that respect. Businesses don't have to declare goods until after they are imported in the majority of cases. Inspections of lorries are very low.
