  1. In 1983: a 1970 Mark 1 Escort (VVH 632 J) £120 debatable colour (Brown/purple/plum - seriously oxidised) more filler than metal in the panels. Flat out it could reach almost 60 mph (tailwind and downhill) In summer, the metal steering wheel got so hot you couldn't touch it. Gearbox was fantastic; could change from 4th to 1st directly and pretty much stand it on its nose, which was useful as the brakes were non-existent. Completed a whole driving lesson once with no clutch (cable broke) ...but when you're 18, wheels is wheels
  2. On the topic of contriving a draw, I can't see it happening because it could only ever be useful to London. For one point to make a difference to London, it means HKR and/or Hudds have already lost which means Trin are already safe on points difference. There will be 10 to 15 minutes play left at BV when the other results are known (sky games are always longer). If one, or both, of the other clubs has lost then a London win will keep both them & Trin in SL. (Assuming they don't win by 80+ points).
  3. It is an advantage to one team when the honest, upstanding sportsmen of Wakefield Trinity play the cheating pies. They're less likely to get away with their grubby, rule-bending tactics.
  4. These modern, full-time referees don't come cheap you know.
  5. With 3 rounds to go, the story of this season's form: Top 5 play-off system: Top team get a bye in the first round and a second bite if they lose the semi. 2nd & 3rd get a second bite if they lose. 4th and 5th have to win every game.
  6. Just a reminder for tomorrow : Yorkshire Day - Declaration of Integrity To be read out loud at 11.44 am on Thursday 1st August 2019 "I, [Name], being a resident of the [West/North/East] Riding of Yorkshire [or City of York] declare: That Yorkshire is three Ridings and the City of York, with these Boundaries of 1144 years standing; That the address of all places in these Ridings is Yorkshire; That all persons born therein or resident therein and loyal to the Ridings are Yorkshiremen and women; That any person or corporate body which deliberately ignores or denies the aforementioned shall forfeit all claim to Yorkshire status. These declarations made this Yorkshire Day 2019. God Save the Queen!"
  7. I guess we'll not be hearing from Wiltshire for a while as he's been taken away for debriefing and re-education by the YIA for revealing state secrets. This information will shortly be deleted from everyone's memory. The EU have said there is no example of a secure border where there are no physical checks, but they didn't consider the highly successful "alternative arrangements" of the Yorkshire boundaries. The whole concept of the "North" is created by the YIA to enable a buffer zone where undesirables can be filtered out. This is usually carried out in 'service stations' in the outlying areas. There are a number of layers of protection against unwanted visitors. Some will fall for the simple "it's grim up North" line, but others require a more complex approach. Some people claim that they've been "up north", but have they really? Occasionally, we need to abduct affluent 'foreigners' and implant fake memories of visiting or even living in god's own county (whilst simultaneously extracting funds from their overweight bank accounts). This is to give the impression that it is actually possible to go there and also to give a boost to the economy. A true world map: (unimportant places not shown). This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds...
  8. I first became aware of this phenomenon when I was in the UK at Christmas. We were discussing a work colleague of my sister's who was a committed flat-earther. This piqued my interest as to how they could arrive at such a position. Having looked into it a little since, I've come to the following conclusions: 1. There are no 'flat-earthers' only globe denying conspiracy theorists. Although they like to use the 'believe what you see' mantra, they don't ever attempt to explain how things you can observe and experience could possibly work on a 'flat earth'. 2. These conspiracy theorists can be split into 4 groups: i) commercial 'flat-earthers' using it to make money from the gullible. They produce youtube videos and deny/deflect/ignore anything that challenges their position as a soothsayer & reduces their ad income. e.g. Nathan Oakley & Mark Sargent. ii) religious 'flat-earthers' who reject anything which goes against their particular interpretation of their holy book. (mostly Americans). e.g. Nathan Roberts & Nathan Thompson. iii) their gullible and needy followers as outlined by @Bob8 above. iv) a sub-group of group iii) who take it upon themselves to try and prove the earth is not the shape we're told at school (note that they don't ever try to prove it's flat) using misinterpreted & misunderstood science e.g. 'sleeping warrior', RantyFlatEarth' & 'Phuket Word'. This group at least have some credibility for trying back up their views. However, they eventually trip themselves up by demonstrating that the globe model is the only one that fits the evidence. This is the only group ever worth engaging with at all and their explanations can be quite entertaining. One of the best debunks I've seen is from 'Professor Dave'
  9. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_assault "A person commits an assault if he performs an act (which does not for this purpose include a mere omission to act) by which he intentionally or recklessly causes another person to apprehend immediate unlawful violence." It seems to me to be pushing the boundaries of what constitutes an assault. The main thing is that he is 'tarred with the same brush' as Yaxley-Lennon and Benjamin. Pictures and video recorded, no need to repeat the action. Maybe he's building his case for assault charges, Nigel refused to get off his bus in sunny Wakefield. Who's afraid of a milkshake shower?
  10. Ooh I do like all this flexible arithmetic. Can I have a go? So, 44% reject a second referendum, take that from 100% means 56% support a people's vote.
