Folks,

This board is intended for straightforward factual questions with straightforward factual answers, not for political discussion.

Re: Minor speeding infringement: Horrendeous penalty

Folks,

This discussion seems to be veering away from the purpose of this board, which is to provide practical help with legal issues.

Please bear that in mind if you wish to post further, and please keep any further replies [more]

I could use itunes but I have about 8Gb of selected favourites on itunes and would be loathe to put them all on there due to issues with synching onto ipod devices of only 8gb capacity

Re: Keeping the unworthy under control

Folks,

There was very little hope of a factual response to a factual question here, and it was always going to be a matter of conjecture - and the response has been pretty much as expected.

If you wish to discuss this topic, please [more]

Re: Barry Beavis parking charges challenge dismissed

Hi Folks,

This thread seems to have drifted away from the original topic, and any practical aspects of it seem to have been pretty much exhausted.

So can we bring it to a halt now and consider it Closed.

Re: Standard Guage

but this seems such a precise measurement which leads one to think there may have been a specific reason why it was chosen.

I don't think the latter is implied by the former - even if it had been chosen randomly, it would still need [more]

Re: Bear with me

I'm no saint either - when I'm on a train with plenty of vacant seats I have been known to plonk a bag next to me, so as to give myself a bit of elbow room. (I am rather broad in the shoulders, not that that's where my elbows are. ;-}) But no [more]

Re: DAK who wants my old hifi separates?

Re: Norovirus

The chair was occupied by our things and for all the old lady knew could have been reserved for another person.

That's why she asked, using a question that is generally considered to be a polite way of enquiring.

Had she followed up her "is that chair occupied" with something like 'do you mind if I sit there' then we'd have naturally responded kindly

Re: Knowing where your eyes are?

I suspect practise comes into it. You've been sticking a fork in your mouth since you were about 2 years old, and I bet you didn't master it at the first attempt ...
