  1. Further to that it seems that at least some of the remain camp posting on this thread have European interests of one type or another. Things that they believe may be lost to them or activities they may not be able to pursue. Some of them seem to think this is not a great country to live in. The many people that are trying to get here having travelled through several 'safe' countries appear to have a different view.
  2. Eloquently put Sir!
  3. Oh No,that wouldn't have been allowed to happen. All you remoaners would have done everything in your power to block it. (Sounds familiar to the current situation)
  4. You two have no chance,we have a Blue Buzzard in our marina!
  5. After taking into account the formulae stated, I am still puzzled by the fact that 'flood water was pouring through the legs of the owner of the second boat'.
  6. I wonder if the stern was sufficiently lower than the top gate paddles, allowing water from said paddles to be directed into the rear doors?
  7. Which engine do you have?
  8. We had a similar fault to this during the summer. Came to start one morning and no lights or noise from the instrument panel. At first thought flat battery, checked with the multimeter, voltage ok connections ok. Turned out to be the glow-plug relay.
  9. Saw a boat in the last few weeks that had blue up and around the waterline then black up to the gunnels. Not bitumen, so I think it must have been two pack. Unless there is another alternative that I haven't heard about.
  10. Further to the observation of a covered dry dock at Fradley Junction, there is also one a few hundred yards before the entrance to King's Bromley Marina, just prior to the road bridge.Not sure whether you are able to hire it for DIY purposes though.
  11. People that don't use spell checker.
  12. It is only regarded as a 'ridiculous referendum' by the people that wanted to remain, had the vote gone the other way I am sure you wouldn't have made such a remark. As for your 'French experience' I have a friend who owned a property in a French village/town six or seven years ago who was treated so badly by the local people that he had no option but to sell up. Of course this was long before any referendum. Some on this forum are all for democracy as long as the majority agree with them. I personally didn't take the immigration issue into account before I made the decision which way to vote, it wasn't a factor.
  13. Jerra, This is the link;-
  14. I have just pasted this part of a PDF from 'For Britain' I have read somewhere else on the 'net' that the UK put forward 72 of it's own proposals and all were rejected. I think this shows what little reform we could expect to achieve within the EU.--- Our research finds:  In the last term, 1,936 motions were put before the European Parliament. 576 of these motions were against British interests and were voted against by the majority of British MEPs. However 485 of these motions still passed. This is a failure rate of 84 per cent.  In party terms, the Conservatives failed to block 87 per cent of the motions they opposed, Labour failed to stop 53 per cent, Liberal Democrats 36 per cent and UKIP 95 per cent.  Looking at all 1,936 motions put before the European Parliament, only 7 per cent were rejected.  On current trends the UK, already one of the most underrepresented states in the European Parliament for its population size, will suffer a further reduction in influence over the next six years.
