Re: Gay cake row...

I regard any actions by any Body to try and exert its will over third parties against their will as offensive.

If someone is sent to prison for a criminal offence the state is exerting its will over the criminal, and it's a reasonable [more]

Re: 'allo, 'allo, 'allo

I'm beginning to wonder whether this hasn't all been a set up, a bit like the fake moon landing, arranged by the Met's PR company to boost their image.

It has all the hallmarks of a detective film from the 1950's. A fiendishly cunning plan; [more]

Re: Gay cake row...

I don't believe in Christianity - I find it ridiculous and offensive.

I don't believe in the religious aspects of Christianity, but I do agree with most of the moral tenets expressed and I'm truly surprised that anyone should find [more]

Re: £20 suggest who appears on it

Sir David Lean, the director of The Bridge on the River Kwai, Doctor Zhivago, Lawrence of Arabia and the two (to my mind) best Charles Dickens films, Oliver Twist and Great Expectations - [more]

Re: Cycling Insurance

British Cycling "Ride" membership at £33/year provides free legal advice and support if you are in an accident like this ...

The other benefits may or may not be worth having but this element of the deal is just a [more]

Re: USA Roadtrip tunes

Why not be radical and try some `classical' (well, sort of) music?

There are some great American composers - a few suggestions:

Gershwin - Rhapsody in Blue - [more]

Another excellent, if somewhat depressing report from Panorama this evening regarding the appalling misuse of antibiotics - http://bbc.in/1FuoiJT

Re: Steven Gerrard

And secondly, when he was agonising over whether or not to move to Chelsea, he said something along the lines of "Nobody could have had a worse week than me. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy". While he was inviting us to share his [more]

Re: my lands in order

My class would have been far better learning the history of rock and roll ...

Which would probably have guaranteed that you would never want to listen to a rock and roll record again!

Rock and roll doesn't need to be taught - [more]

From the article:

She met a man at a party whose breath was “the worst I have ever smelled – almost faecal”. The next day, he killed himself. “Could a diseased gut,” she wonders, “also have affected his psychological state?” [more]

Re: Cycling Insurance

I have no connection to this/DYOR, but Wiggle are currently promoting this scheme: http://legal.wiggle.co.uk/

Re: Self Assessment and Charity giving

As with any other claim for a tax refund you are expected, not unreasonably, to provide evidence in support.

So if you've made a charitable donation on which Gift Aid has been claimed all you need to do is tell HMRC the date of the gift, the [more]

Re: Revisiting compensation settlement with insurer

It would probably not be possible to re-open the case against the insurers, as they are generally entitled to assume that a final settlement is just that - final. The boy had the benefit of legal advice, so I can't see any grounds on which he could [more]

Re: Labour....

All, but a few have a roof over their heads, they do not live 30 or 40 to a room as they did when Labour first came to power

People may not be living 30 or 40 to a room (not that they ever did) but there are severe housing shortages. [more]

Both the other BTLs are in my name only. I never even considered increasing her share on those. I have owned one of them for over 10 years and the other for about 3. I take it she would buy in at the current value of the properties? [more]

Yes. And I would consider that he was quite entitled to be sad when he's subjected to such (to my mind) unjustified abuse.

Re: High beam assist

I quite agree that high beam assist is a stupid device, as it won't activate until the other car's headlights are shining right at it.

A human being can see another car approaching long before it's directly facing him, and dip the lights [more]

I don't blame you. It must be jolly frustrating to get a phone that works perfectly straight out of the box and just carries on doing so! ;-)
