Re: Bond Bug

I always wanted a bug - heck I still do.

Although I did have a bright yellow robin estate - clocked at 97MPH on the M1 by the old bill. Simply one of the scariest things I had ever done.

The reliant A series block was a think of simplistic beauty, I would love to own another one, although wifey says no. Properly wise woman that one!

The BBC wants to slap a TAX on EVERYONE in BLIGHTY

ukgnome
Silver badge

Personally I think the BBC is already an expensive pay-per-subscription service. It doesn't listen to its customers and is a bit old hat.

Having said that, I like the BBC - I just think it's an expensive dinosaur. It tries to be everything to everyone and sadly it fails. I don't care for homes under the bargain in my attic type of shows, but I do like Doctor Who.

Maybe go the way of netflix, but premium content online and kill a few digital channels.

aagghhh i just don't know what's best for the old girl.

Also, please fire off a few emails to the twunts that control the wifi service called the cloud as I don't want a dumb post office advert auto-playing at every bloody station.

Dear BT

Please can you at least service the kit in our sub-exchange. Just a little maybe?

I shouldn't be ungrateful as the 6.5 down and .3 up is better than some rural communities. It's just that it's been a year, and I thought you might of at least assessed it.

I remember trying this as soon as the episode aired and I can contest that this indeed is a winner, although I would lightly fry the bread to stop the collapse.

Also if you find yourself without chutney or chilli then you I would also say using raspberry jam and English mustard also works a treat.

Re: That will not work

The seller ratings can be fudged just as easily if you think about it.
