That woman never did get back to me, the lying cow.

But the insurance approved garage did a splendid job on my car. It was all shiny!

That would be German coal plants. Hinkley C is very, very, very unlikely to cause and transboundary impacts. So it doesn't fall in the scope of the treaty.

The document further confirms that there was a period in 2011 when the public could make representations. Austria couldn't be bothered to raise issues until 2012, well after the consultation had closed. Despite that, the Austrian Government was allowed to participate in during 2103.

Germany declined to make any representations. However, a party in Germany decided to object sometime in 2013, well after the public consultation period.

The UK has correctly pointed out that "the German public were able to participate in the Hinkley Point C application process in the same way as the public of any other State, including the United Kingdom"

It's not like the Hinkley planning documents were available in the Planning Department of Alpha Centuria!

The nutjobs at the ministry of transport originally wanted to plough the M1 all the way to Marble Arch!

Someone has parked really close to my car this morning, about 20cm. I went out and took a picture for my records.

I thought when I saw that Wendi was the last person to post on this thread that she'd been out driving in her Mini Metro and had an interesting tale to tell.

It's nearly 19 years since I passed my driving test. I shuddered the other day when I realised there are now people driving on the roads who were born in the year 2000.

I have successfully carried out my weekly shop and car exercise.

Shop - 4/5, car wash people were lurking in the car park but I avoided them

Exercise - 4/5, not much traffic because of the school holidays, so I took the quick route past the quarry, you know

Return - 3/5, had to parallel park but I did it brilliantly. Luckily there was a bus further up the road holding back the traffic, so I didn't have to hurry

I've lost the knack of parallel parking. I know I can do it after a fashion, but the thought of people sitting in the corresponding cars watching me - if not filming me on a dash cam - and the fact I could easily bump into them really puts me off. At the shops I'd rather easily park a distance away and walk the extra few minutes. Obviously, outside your house is a different matter.

I'm still waiting to be able to afford a car with parking sensors or an actual reversing camera. I'd soon regain my confidence, if not swagger.

I used to be like you, till I got an Easipark (R) parking lens

which revolutionised my life. You have to practice a bit to get the hang of it, but it's dead useful. Only £8 in Halfords.
