Wouldn't be the first timeblush

I too thought that. Frankly, I think the deletion of certain recent posts speaks volumes. In fact, I've cancelled my subscription as a result of this and previous posts that were deleted.

That's a Series 2 car. Personally, I prefer the Series 1 with the headlight fairings. or 1 1/2. It's also got the wrong seats.

It was probably smashed by someone you has a grudge with Amazon.

They probably thought it was waiting for a bus to get back to Amazon, (intelligent software informs a drone to catch a bus when the batteries are low). wink

Once again, it's not the drone that's the problem, it's people.


How could anyone possibly have a grudge against Amazon?

23/07/2017 14:05:54

Sorry to appear harsh but, frankly, leaving it in a bus shelter near a school was a foolish idea.

The Police have a 'Lost Property' department for a reason and if it was a fairly big drone, it stands to reason it had a value to someone perhaps. As Gangster says, there is a possibility the pilot simply lost control for any one of a number of reasons. It wouldn't be the first time. I think it's sometimes too easy to assume all drone pilots are irresponsible.

Thread: Very low mileage older car - should I be suspicious?
15/06/2017 19:01:30

As stated above, don't consider it without checking the MOT history. It's highly unlikely to have been clocked within the first 3 years and every year thereafter, provided it's been MOT'd, the mileage should be recorded unless its been SORNED.

I've just bought a 13 year old car with 30k on the clock and it's an absolute beaut. If you're still unsure, ask for an RAC inspection.

It might be worth pointing out that Richard Hammond wasn't completly annihilated.

Super Saturday?

More like damp squib Saturday.

Scotland way off their early form.

France v Wales full of mistakes from both sides and ends in farce.

Ireland v England dull, dull dull.

I think every team took a step backwards.

18/03/2017 17:10:48

That was a farce. Confusion over substitute players and who has or hasn't had an HIA. Badly handled by the officials.

If you ask me, it was the French front row that were popping up in those last few scrums. At least 1 French penalty should have gone the other way.

18/03/2017 16:08:16

10-12. No more points for either side, please.

That would be amazing given their performances as little as 18 months ago. Like with England, it shows how quickly things can turn around.

Errm? Didn't Scotland get to the quarter finals of the last world cup and miss out on a semi place thanks to a stupid, blind ref?wink

Anyway, back to the matter in hand. Come on Wales, get the finger out. A nice win by a narrow margin and no bonus point will see Scotland stay in second place.

18/03/2017 09:31:20

For once, I'll be supporting England. I think I'm correct in saying if Scotland beat Italy and England beat Ireland, Scotland move to 4th in the IRB rankings. Great for the next RWC.

Use whatever language you like at a football match but on a rugby thread, on this forum, exhibit a little self-discipline, please!face 5


Not sure if that was aimed at me but if so, apologies for any offence caused but, frankly, I've heard much worse spoken by the players throughout the tournament and inadvertently broadcast.

If you want comparisons with a football match try being in a rugby club post game.

11/03/2017 19:14:34

I hate to admit it but England just outclassed Scotland in just about every area. Well deserved winners of the 6 Nations.

God, that was difficult to type out.

10/03/2017 22:20:55

As a Scotland supporter, I have to say well done Wales. A huge improvement over two weeks ago. Glad you saved that performance for Ireland.

Now all I have to do is hope Scotland beat England and Ireland beat England next week. Scotland to beat Italy wink

History lads, gone, finished. Your next performance matters. My lot will hopefully be looking to, and hopefully delivering a reality check, AKA gutting Scotland.

It is unfortunate that Scotland have their tails up.

But all the press reports, insults, are just wind.

Mr Sleath, I enjoyed your missive.

Got to disagree with you, Donald.

One of the great things about rugby is the ability of the crowd to mingle irrespective of which team they support. The banter and friendly rivalry is all part of the fun. If EJ keeps on insulting other teams, how long will it take before that animosity transfers to the stands and segregation has to start. Last thing rugby needs is to go down the same road as football and if Jones keeps on insulting other teams, thats just whats going to happen.

Yep England were baffled, neither the players nor coaches got to grips with it till half time, so we looked foolish n inept ? well you take it on the chin n move on, whinging makes you look even worse.

Italy/ O'shea said Eddie upset em by saying they wanted to take them to the cleaners on T.V, he's right that's disrespectful, we got paid back for the insult, fair do's.

Was it Rugby ? No, but it was amusing


What was more insulting was saying, post match, that England needed to go and practice because they hadn't been involved in a game of rugby.

27/02/2017 15:30:53

It was shown on ITV.

The play that Italy used isn't arcane in any way but rather they took advantage of the rules and caused endless confusion amongst England players because of the unorthodox style.

I find it rather worrying that World Rugby is considering changing the rules because one coach described the ploy as 'not a game of rugby'. Surely the fault lies with the players who were unfamiliar with the rule book and unable to think out of the box to counter the way Italy played.

Apparently this tactic has been used before in Australia domestic games but, one tried, is easily countered.

27/02/2017 11:57:06

Well, at least France and Scotland will have an opportunity to become conversant with the rule book before their respective games.
