  1. Back in the early 60s there was an electrical/cycle shop in Chelmsford that had an unused early 50s BSA Bantam in the window. Someone had bought and paid for it and never came back to collect it. The shopkeeper refused to resell it. I've often wondered what happened to it when the shop closed down.
  2. To get the most from the Karousel you need to upgrade everything else in your system. But the Karousel alone will make a great improvement to the LP12.
  3. Okay, so what other means are available? Israel holds all the power, so I suppose there's always rolling over. The Jewish people definitely need a safe home. Anyone who's visited the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem must acknowledge that. But the Palestinians also need a home, and they had one that was taken from them by Britain and the USA. The best thing would be for Israel to return to the pre-1967 borders and for the Palestinians to accept that and so give Israel security. But the Israelis would need to to compensate those Palestinians and their successors who are still in refugee camps having been chased from their homes by terrorism in 1948. Israel under the present government won't consider this, but continue to settle Palestinian land. If you visit Bethlehem you will see that across the valley is a "settlement" surrounded by barbed wire, protected by Israeli troops and carved out of olive groves and pastures worked by Palestinians for centuries. I had a conversation with a Palestinian security guard on the Temple Mount a few years ago. He felt that the situation could only be resolved if a hero arose who could carry both sets of Semitic people with him. But this will not happen with the USA propping up an extreme right wing Israeli government put into power by immigrants from the former Soviet bloc.
  4. Which of the two is in control? Which is evicting the other? Which won't agree to the Egyptian peace proposals?
  5. I'm mix-handed. I write with my left hand, but do most other things with my right. It's very different from being ambidextrous. I can't write with my right hand, despite having tried repeatedly when I was young, and I can't play racquet sports, for example, with my left. I suspect that being mix handed is the cause of my general clumsiness, as the two sides of my brain would seem to be battling it out.
  6. And the indicators have never been used!
  7. Otherwise known as the Norton Electra, a bored out Navigator with electric start and bar end indicators. It had Roadholder forks and a Norton grey tank, but that's as close as it got to being a Norton. It was made in Plumstead out of spare AMC parts. The Prince of Darkness was responsible for the electrics, so it's hardly surprising that they were hit or miss. Mine was a 1964 model bought from a collector in the late 80s. I sold it a few years later, having never really enjoyed it.
  8. First, Vespa 125. Best, Yamaha AS1. Small, but perfectly formed. Worst, Norton EL4. Now, I sold my last, a Guzzi V7ll, a bit over two years ago, and have permanently retired from two wheels.
  9. Had he named the pupils he was speaking of I'd have agreed with you. But no names were given.
  10. There's no Prince Harold in the British royal family. That's why I'm confused by this thread.
  11. But who is this Harold of whom you speak?
  12. I replaced my Lehmann Black Cube with a Rothwell SUT and am very happy with the result
  13. I suppose when you're the fat lad who's always the last to be picked.....
  14. As others have said above, it's "influencers" who've gone on holiday to Dubai. Thirty five coppers have been disciplined for having their hair cut at the station. Reports from the ski resorts suggest there are a lot of wealthy Britons among the crowds partying there. You appear to have an dislike of footballers which has led to your singling them out and being blind to the offences of others.
