Every punter wants to talk about the Ukraine war.

And they are all f***ing experts on it, yet all say different things. #-o

simples Putin has been corrupted by having absolute power and become paranoid about the threat of Nato so wants to annex Ukraine and Moldova to create a bigger cushion between him and Nato countries. The war will end when a few of his generals take him to one side and put a bullet in his brain

[edited by admin] up thugs that come out of a takeaway and grab the roof sign off one of my drivers cars smash it in the road :evil:

and no M the takeaway nor the car had CCTV but that wouldn't have mattered as police weren't interested anyway

Maybe he has just realised that he is self-employed and can do exactly what he likes.

Including working when he wants to.

SHE ! but in my book Holiday means Holiday and it might have been a courtesy to let me know she was doing that instead of getting phone calls from other drivers telling me !

I see your point, however.....

Sadly courtesy and the taxi/PH trade aren't always good bedfellows.

Lincolnshire police would prefer you to go around, rather than across the roundabout. You may have seen the burnt out wreck of a Ford Focus on the A46/A1 roundabout showing you what happens when you attempt to go across a roundabout. Not bumping into you in Lincoln? The pleasure was all mine! I almost bumped into you at a filling station in Stamford a few years back if you recall.

Idiots who order their food via the online screens at KFC.

It seems Russia is seeking soldiers from Syria and China to assist in Ukraine, things havent quite gone as he expected, the mighty "Red Army" seems just a memory now

Ukraine's president has gone form comical actor/comedian to the best known and respected leader in the world in under 2 weeks, Russia has struck at a military base very close to NATO's Polish border...
