If we lose the Post Office we will lose the delightfully grumpy lady who gets really irate (almost to the point of frothing from the mouth) when I won’t tell her what is in the parcel I am sending!
I don’t get why I have to. I normally relent though as the game gets quite boring quite quickly. Apparently it is ok to send penguins through the post!
I sent a parcel of Christmas goodies to my son in Japan and had to declare the complete contents, he was working on Christmas day but I sent him a cracker to go with his dinner, naively I mentioned this and it was game over. Not allowed to send explosives. Had to remove it and repackage it.

Expect the most criticism from homophobic
speakers of Cockney rhyming slang.

Our Post Office is busy all day. Not only does it fill in for the banks which have departed, its handy for dropping off or picking up parcels, picking up foreign currency, picking up numerous forms and so on. We’d be screwed if they closed down.

I love gingers! Is there actually a day where I'm allowed to go round kissing them?

from someone who has worked on the railway in the Midlands for 15 years... HS2 is going to be a huge investment for Birmingham, and will affect the commuter belt.

There is no such thing as “lethal tyres”.

I suppose the worst ones are unpredictable, with wildly varying grip levels between dry and wet.
But yes, with a bit of consideration you can live with most issues provided you can plan ahead and don’t have binary inputs.

(I still fit the best ones, I like to have as big a margin as possible)

I think that the families of those South Africans lynched by “necklacing”, during the ANC/apartheid era;
having a tyre filled with petrol draped around their necks, then set alight, would disagree with you.
I appreciate that Countdown is talking of bald or not bald vehicle tyres.

No they wouldn’t. If somebody gets his skull caved in by an Encyclopedia it would be incorrect to say that Encyclopedias are lethal. Neither encyclopedias nor tyres are designed to kill people.

If vehicles have to give cyclists 1.5m then cyclists should have to give vehicles 1.5m.

If your post is referring to mine I understand physics.

My opinion of 1.5m is because if the cyclist is ‘filtering’ or undertaking or whatever, what happens if their chain snaps or comes off, or they fall off etc... I thought the 1.5M was for their benefit so why shouldn’t they abide by it just the same as vehicles are required too?

I think 'lethal' in this context means an item which can kill even when being used in a normal way.

Murray's press conference today was just an embarrassment, keep it together man ! Dunblane clearly affected him badly.
You sir, are a kunt. Sorry.
They said that on the BBC earlier, so it’s not an unpopular opinion.
The reference to Dunblane is clearly out of order but a multi millionaire crying about going into retirement garners little sympathy from me. I just hope he doesn't get a job as a pundit... Who am I kidding of course he will, the BBC gave Michael Owen a job ffs.

It baffles me why so many people appear to give a fk either way. On BBC Breakfast the (yet to be decided) point at which he packs it in is being described as a "historic moment in sport".
