  1. If it goes again, it needs some runners on the committee. I bet the weekly mileage of the last lot was about zero.
  2. So as there's no byelaws preventing people swimming there as they have been for decades and RMBC don't own it, they should keep out of it?
  3. I emailed Kevin Barron MP, last year. I was copied in on the response he got from RMBC. No byelaws exist to prohibit swimming in the dyke, as RMBC has considered them not necessary. Need to recheck that - a triathlon group was holding regular swim sessions there last year. Similar to Rother Valley and now Harthill Reservoir.
  4. Could you imagine the outcry, if they'd both been sucking on a Camel!
  5. Not just down to the strength of the panels. Under £20 they're unlikely to be treated with preservatives. Buy £20+ and they're likely to be pressure treated with preservative. Put in the cost of your own preservative, time to paint them and consider that painting will only put it on the surface. Worth a few quid more?
  6. What do you actually need to meditate? Nothing apart from a comfortable seat. The rest music/incense is just dressing and possibly distraction. Just sit.
  7. Yeah, just imagine how those car drivers would complain if they had to start paying road tax as well..
  8. I know that if for example you have someone work on your house, you have a responsibility for their work standards as regards H&S. We've got a company near us, employing a subcontracting firm to carry out work near a public area. The company is saying that they have no responsibility as regards the working practices of the subby firm, in respect to H&S. Can anyone point me to the relevant legislation to contradict their viewpoint? Thanks in advance.
  9. Are you sure? If so, how do you know? The transcripts have been widely reported and, as you pointed out, the broadcast is available via youtube (for only one of many sources). I reckon theres probably a lot more people have seen these and are only not complaining because they've seen how large a backlash has been created already.
  10. any option in these to request a received receipt? Basically wanting a mail back, so I can see what the IP is. Ta
  11. You're changing the parameters of your statement now. You said "Great idea - so it's the car's fault, even if the cyclist just swerves out in front of a carefully driven car. " which is what I responded to. If the cyclists in front of you, I take it you're leaving an adequate gap incase he stops suddenly? or if he has to swerve as in rule 213? otherwise its not carefully driven.
  12. http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_069858 Rule 213 - take it you've got a licence? Hows it carefully driven if you're driving contrary to the HC?
  13. Whether a m'cycle can filter left or right, a cycle can legally. So whereas a cyclist shouldn't filter past someone indicating left theres plenty of drivers don't know they have indicators, or know they're supposed to check down their nearside before turning off.
  14. Aaah... eyes in the back of your head and hindsight, both usefull tools.
  15. TBH, when it does exist, the peds completely ignore it anyway. Infact you'll usually find they tend to walk on the bit designated for cycles! Wonder if they say "wheres your bell!?!" after getting a blast from a 120db airhorn.....
