    Is it worth nicking mobile phones these days? I thought that even the security services had trouble breaking into them. Or is that just for accessing data?

    There’s vids on YouTube showing you how to hack stolen iPhones

    It’s a service that dodgy phone repair shops will do too

    Are you even living in the same country as me? If what you said was the case then surely Labour would of won the GE?

    Your failure to understand UK elections makes me think we might not be in the same country 😜

    NYE is celebrating something some people like
    Brexit is something that less than half the country thinks is a ridiculous waste of time & money, that has already poisoned & divided the country & cost us £bns

    FTFY

    that may have been the case in June 2016, but as the recent GE showed the majority of the electorate want a 2nd…[Read more]

    I think the point is that Brexit has been such an expensive & divisive venture so far, with the brexiteers orchestrating a relentless campaign of lies & BS, that us ‘point scoring losers’ will be pointing out the stupidities & saying ‘I told you so’ each shambolic step of the way

    not unfair, just a hilariously daft thing to do!

    bell-end francois & all the nonsense around this are perfect examples of brexit

    Brilliant!

    But now that Branson has lost some of his tail franchises he’s gotta go over up the taxpayer subsidies somehow, he has a lifestyle to maintain!

    I suspect the brexit bailouts will keep on coming for a while

    nah theyll just tell every one its great and because the Sun/ Daily Mail/Telegraph says so they will believe it

  • “… of what,” remains rather more elusive, however.

    big bens bongs?

  • Hasn’t the validity (or otherwise) of the 2016 referendum been made irrelevant by the recent general election?

    A vote for the Tories was a vote to leave.

    Arguably the Great British Public are more informed now about the problems of leaving than they were in 2016. And yet Boris still won.

    yep pro brexit parties got 57% of vote

    I worked in a royal mail depot back when I was a student, it wasn’t so different.

    Without trying to sound like a suspension god (I know I’m not)

    Shockwiz always seems to tell me that I’ve got things set up fine so it’s just reassurance really, but that’s usually after trial & error until it feels right.

    And no I’m not likely to change my settings for different places- I’m quite lazy really, it’s more just geeky interest to…[Read more]

  • kimbers replied to the topic Tuning with Shockwiz. in the forum Bike Forum 3 days ago

    I think that adding the mega neg will allow you to run a higher pressure and reduce the bottoming out, with the negative chamber still keeping small bump sensitivity

    That should help with packing down problem, but may not totally fix it.

    Volume spacers are the cheapest way to tune things tho, so might be worth starting with them

    Also worth…[Read more]

    you’re using that to attack RS when he had a long and complex involvement in that region.

    yes I will attack his friendship & continued support of Orban, Im not sure why you wont let me?

    It has helped legitimise Orban & Fidesz amongst some very influential parts of the right in this country

  • kimbers replied to the topic RIP Roger Scruton in the forum Chat Forum 4 days ago

    I’m not disagreeing that the world is shades of grey, but he must be aware as anyone that what he says will get reduced to black & white

    His friendship with & support of Orban is a good example, he agrees that Hungary was suddenly being invaded by huge tribes of Muslims from the middle east , which, in the case of Hungary, wasn’t true. But the…[Read more]

    People like Scruton, a fanny as he may be, had to the courage to publish those so that others could refute them.

    By that logic you could incite hatred, be as abusive & offensive as you like because it’s all fine, you’re just giving others the opportunity to refute you.

    I’m not sure that makes much sense, it also breaks the golden rule of ‘dont…[Read more]
