    Strongest Superglue?

    I've never had much success with Superglue and hard plastics. I think the Technicql Adhesive will be a good choice if it is compatible with the particular type of plastic you need to glue. You might consider strengthening the join with a thin layer of epoxy resin such as Araldite if the component is suitable for this.

    Blue Badge parking

    I was both pleased and frustrated at the Northern General today. I had to take someone into A&E and was somewhat frustrated to find disabled parking at A&E but nowhere where I could park to drop off someone who couldn't walk! Why would you provide disabled parking at A&E but no parking for injured people arriving as emergencies? What did please me was I was able to move the car after booking the injured person into A&E without getting a ticket for parking in a disabled bay, and got a parking space in one of the main car parks close to A&E.

    old boundry club for sale at jordanthorpe

    Would expect the land to only be allows for recreational use (D2). No chance of housing being built without quite a fight. Looks like it is part of Sheffield, not North Derbyshire. http://sheffield.devplan.org.uk/map.aspx?map=26&layers=all

    The shame of Saudi Arabia

    I find Saudia Arabia's attitudes, and those of many other arabian countries to be depressing. To my mind, they are barbaric and cruel. Most of their citizens seem to think that it is acceptable to abuse anyone who has less power than they do. Why are the only critical voices we hear from Saudia Arabia those of women who have been abused by their families and who have had enough? Why does no one in power try to change things? Where are the moral thinkers? What are the Imams doing if they are not leading their people towards a more moral way of living? There is a school of thought that we can change their attitudes by engaging with them. I think that this is wrong and that we should having nothing to do with them until they reform themselves. Others might say "Who are we to determine what is cruel/moral/right and what is not?" I say that causing physical pain to others is cruel, immoral and not right, because we know that there are less painful ways to punish people that still punishes them. When you know that there is a better way, but stick with a method that inflicts unnecessary suffering, that is self-evidently barbaric.
  5. John Caudwell no longer has a stake in Phones4u. Phones4u will pay UK corporation tax correctly, unlike some global corporations who use their global scale to minimise the tax they pay in the UK. John is entitled to his opinion, and to lobby for or against any political party he wishes to. He clearly has no faith that a Labour Party Government lead by Jeremy Corbyn would implement what he would regards as a 'fair' taxation policy. John has been happy enough to live in the UK to date and to pay tax at the current levels, so we can assume that he thinks the current taxation policy is not unfair. He is probably paying £35-£50m a year in income tax at present. Even billionaires are entitled to an opinion, especially one who did what John Caudwell did. I worked for John and saw the tremendous opportunities he created for everyone who worked for him. John's employees paid more tax per year than he is paying now, so he has been a major creator of wealth in the country and a major creator of tax revenues.
  6. I've just received a bill from Sheffield City Council and noticed that they were asking for payment to be made to a different sort code to last year's payment. This is due to Barclays issuing new sort codes as part of the creation of the "ringfenced" Barclays Bank in the UK in early 2018. Barclays will route payments correctly for three years (so until around Jan 2021) if you use the old sort code, but it would be as well for anyone making payments to SCC using stored details to update these when making their next payment. Payment instructions will be on the back of the Invoice.

    Concrete fence posts

    If you want to cut any off, you will need something that will cut through the steel reinforcement in them.

    MP's to get inflation breaking pay rise.

    I have to say that I am frustrated that we cannot seem to get MP pay rises right: if MPs decide their own payrises, they give themselves too much, if we appoint an independent body to decide their pay rises and it gives them too much, what do we do? MP salaries are now supposed to be linked to public sector pay awards, but MPs don't have performance related pay OR fickle managers who can give their mates 3% while awarding those who are out of favour 1%. I would suggest that everyone writes to the Independent Parliamentary Standard Authority to express our frustration with their approach to MP pay awards, because they don't seem to realise that the public cares about their decisions, and wants them to make sure our MPs are delivering value for money.

    Good Gastroenterologist in Sheffield ?

    Sorry I can't recommend a good gastroenterologist. Does your husband have any medical cover at work? If not, does anyone, e.g. senior managers or directors? The medical provider may be willing to share with your husband their list of gastroenterologists who undertake private practice. This might help put you in touch with someone who can help more quickly. In the first instance, your husband might write to the director that is responsible for his function at work to get his support to approach HR with the question. HR should be able to put him in touch with the provider, if there is one.

    Reporting road traffic incidents

    Yes, it is worth it. Many of those committing serious motoring offences will continue to do so until they receive some training and/or punishment. Training or prosecuting them could result in them becoming safer drivers and avoid needless deaths, and their remorse for having killed someone.

    Big lips and botox. why?

    They do it to feel accepted by their peers. They probably feel that it is cheaper and less painful to have surgery that change their peer group.

    Living alone?

    I think that it is generally a positive thing: many people prefer to live the majority of their lives in their own space, space that they feel safe in and that is organised how they want it to be. Such people might have very rich lives with family, friends and activities. Or they might have quite a sparse life with little human contact, and this may not be what they want, but that they have the choice to live as they do must be a positive thing. Living alone is not the same as being lonely.

    Training venue

    It might help if you describe the facilities you need and the number of delegates you need to accommodate on each course.

    Price "hike" greggs

    I was surprised to see Yum-Yums in Greggs were now 70p each. This compares to 42p about three years ago. This is a 66% increase! I think Greggs have realised that they are in rip-off Britain.

    Dash cam dangers

    The OP might reflect on the reason why so many replies do not have sympathy for her son, who has lost his job. I believe it is because we would like everyone to take responsibility for their mistakes, and when someone posts their support for someone who is experiencing severe consequences of their mistake, we assume they are condoning or trying to minimise the effect of the mistake. We don't really know the OP's motivation, but they have suggested that it was to warning to other drivers. This is a good suggestion - all drivers should be careful about overstepping the mark! Even if someone has deliberately cut you up, there are limits to what society will tolerate by way of retaliation; a short blast on the horn is reasonable, anything more is too much - horns are supposed to warn other motorist, they are not supposed to be sounded after a warning would have no purpose. Please drive to the best of your ability and respect all other road users.
