    The Moto motorway services are at the end of the road, not exactly a hardship to wait there tbh.


    And the red route only came in during 2019 and you last said you went six years ago.

    It might be six years ago but the laybys are still there on one of the dual carrageways off a bit nearer to the airport, that makes more sense, but its down to personal choice,  each to their own and all that. To be honest which ever the choice is there not much in it, time wise or mileage wise.

    Ok so the choice is  £5 near the terminal or 1hr free at long stay park, up to my passenger to choose. On pick up it will be her choice again.

    Im on about parking a couple of miles away which only about 4 or5 mins drive, there are public lay bys some with burger vans and some with toilets,  no red routes no double yellows or cameras,  its nowt to do with the airport.  Pricing wise, I mentioned the last time I went, it was a quid, obviuos its changed since. 

  3. There is a choice of two or thee barriers side by side  to go through, quick drop off is the one I used which is just several yards away from arrivals,  you just put a pound in a box and the exit lifts automaticly to let you out,  I  must admit,  it is about six years ago I last went so not sure if same procedure is as mentioned.

    Newsflash - the TV stations put these programmes and people on TV because people, rightly or wrongly, choose to watch them.


    If they all stopped watching them, they would stop making them. A top tip for you all.

    News Flash. :hihi:    If you stopped posting on the Forum loads more people would post on here,  top tip for you.  :thumbsup:

    So you can reach a decision about the musical content of each programme by changing "the channel quick enough"? Amazing.

    I would suggest that rather than waste your time watching it, buy a copy of "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" by Lynne Truss, and read it from cover to cover.

    The idea of going through the channels is to see and hear what you want to watch and discard the garbage like strictly or a more fitting name sickly,  oh! and I don't need to read your book,  it sounds like you need to visit Spec savers and while your out and about get an hearing aid, mind you, that won't help cure your tone defness.  :hihi:

    Primarily because it is licensed and costs vast amounts of money.  Whilst the BBC does have some long-standing agreements with the music industry there will be strict rules about when, how and in what context it can be used.


    Do not underestimate the ridiculous sums that broadcasters have to pay for anything that is potentially copyrighted or licensed. Even having to pay thousands of pounds to access the most innocuous pieces of stock footage or background photographs. Television is vastly complicated and expensive to make and there are some extremely good YouTube videos and documentaries about the difficulties and sheer scale of the operations behind the scenes. It is not just about chucking on some background music, letting people prance around and filming it.


    Also, with it being a live television show which has to be timed down to the absolute second, chances are that many of the full original tracks are simply too long or unwieldy to fit within the choreographed correct camera angles, lighting effects, graphics, visuals. Again, filming for television to make it look good to the viewer at home is vastly more complicated than performing straight in front of an audience.


    Oh and by the way, those "jerks" as you dismiss them are a professional Orchestra and musical director made up of several session musicians who have worked with some of the biggest artists. They are hardly some wannabes picked from their mum's garage. If you don't like the programme fine but at least have some respect for the professional musicians.  It is part of the big appeal and draw to the program is having the live music element. It is a call back to it's traditional roots when it was first broadcast and is more aligned to the realities of such competitions taking place off the television.

    I think they sound rubbish, corny, cheesy infact they could do with Rick Astley or more like Rick Ghastley that would put the icing on their Cheez cake, thats my opion which I am aloud to have, you have yours which by the way doesn't make you right, like you think you are all the time, as for watching this programme,  I don't,  Flicking through channels I unfortunately catch some of it and can't change the channel quick enough,  some people like to watch this programme and some don't,  everybody is allowed their opinion. Some people agree with me and some don't. There you go.

    I said this years ago and got slated for it.

    Dont know why you got slated, because you were correct,  I cant see why, when it comes to certain themes like hollywood musicals ect they dont play the original sound tracks,  instead of listening to those Jerks. :huh:

    You're obviously not a musician, pal.


    I don't care for the dancing, but the band and singers are superb.

    You can't be  serious or a musician either but I'll tell you what you are PAL !  your tone deaf,  you hear this sort of corny, cheesey  rubbish at weddings or on a cruise ship.  :gag:

    Starmer is called Tory-lite and a Blairite. The party changed direction over 20 years ago and finally became electable - but some Labour supporters can't get over that.

    Blair cleaned up thatchers and Majors  mess and looks like Starmer will have to clean up Johnsons mess.

  10. Ads are annoying at most but seen  4 really annoying ads on the trot Phillip Schofield,  Eamon Holmes, Rylan Clarke  and the ridiculous Joe Swash,  just needed a Keith Lemon ad  to reduce me to tears.  :roll:

    It's a fact that as a consequence of media scaremongering too many motorists bought more petrol and diesel than they normally do which resulted in petrol stations needing more deliveries than they normally need in a week which meant there was a temporary situation where the supply of fuel at petrol stations was lower than the demand for fuel at petrol stations.  Everything is back to normal now because the demand for fuel at petrol stations is lower than the supply of fuel at petrol stations.  Nothing at all to do with trees in a forest but everything to do with the law of supply and demand.

    I agree and am aware of the panic buying caused by the media but Boris doesn't have clean hands infact his fingers are in most of the country problem pies.

    The electorate voted to leave the EU. Parliament voted to set the wheels in motion to withdraw and started the clock. Parliament agreed the terms and we left as agreed by both sides of the house.   Now companies, suppliers, manufacturers, diatributors have known we were leaving for 2 years on top of an already well established dwindling number of HGV drivers well before brexit even came into force responsibility.


    He does right to play down considering the media's repeated hysterical reporting and selective imagery of cars queuing for miles desperate to get the last drops a avail so have some responsibility.


    Moronic members of the public desperately chasing anything that looks remotely like a fuel tanker or filling up massive amounts which they didn't need have some responsibility.....


    ....But oh yes let's just play the simplistic option and blame everything on Boris as per usual 🙄.  Pull your head out of the sand.

    Just as I expected, a Typical deluded conservative in denial statement  when the Plank leader gets it all wrong as per,   If my head was in the sand  I would rather keep it there rather  than watch this Planks  blunders every day Me and the majority of this country are not wrong about this Plank.

    Boris was most certainly not to blame for the panic buying of fuel at petrol stations.  The media were to blame.

    Another Con in denial, seriously you lot can't see the forest for the trees.  :hihi:
