    And the Polish guy in that link who got in the car while pissed to drive 900 feet.

    OT sorry, but I knew a bloke vaguely from a pub and I found out he was at home on a Sunday night, drunk, fancied a Chinese so got in the car, clouted a neighbour's garden wall and called his wife to come and get him cos she hadn't been drinking. Neighbour meanwhile phones old bill who turn up and breathalyse the bloke. So, lost licence for a Chinese meal from a place THAT DELIVER. Plus the bloke was a bus driver. Job gone, licence gone. Cost him about thirty grand to go and get a Chinese meal when he was pissed.

    If they don't allow bikes in the sorting office order a Brompton addressed to yourself and when you collect it unwrap it and unfold it and ride out flicking the vs.

    I used the cashpoint on City Road, was off my bike and holding it by the bar stem, bloke behind me said "Cyclists off pavements". This was eight years ago but I don't dwell on it.

    Both Alan and Colin Drummond have serious questions to answer about what system for checking driver entitlement they were operating at the time of Mr Meyer’s employment and about why that system, if they had one, failed. Instead, they have sought to evade their responsibilities by refusing to speak to DVSA examiners and refusing to attend the preliminary hearing and public inquiry.

    I note that the wish to surrender the licence (Alan Drummond) and the unbearable burden of other responsibilities (Colin Drummond) have both suddenly emerged in the last few weeks, after they received the call-up letters to the preliminary hearing and public inquiry. By contrast, they have had no apparent difficulty in continuing to operate over the past two years, since the fatality caused by Mr Meyer (and, indirectly, by their own failure to fulfil one of the most basic responsibilities of an operator or transport manager – to ensure that a driver of one of their HGVs was qualified to drive it). Four vehicles were operated by Mr Drummond right up to 6 May 2015, with the last vehicle being removed from the licence on 17 May 2015.

    Because neither man has attended the public inquiry today, they have been unable to present any mitigating factors which might argue against revocation of the licence and the disqualification of its holder and transport manager.

    I used to see her outside McD's on Bethnal Green Road meeting her dealer. Saw it once anyway.

    I did that with borage, the book said pull them up by the root cos there's loads of minerals and goodness that the plant has drawn up, then chop them up in a bucket of water. After a couple of weeks I diluted it and watered the garden but the smell was one of the worst I've ever experienced, it was utterly foul and rank and I've been to south London.

    Guardian reviews Ted 2:

    It’s undeniably funny. The cute babyish face, the way he sounds like a grown-up when he curses, that absurd dirtbag Southie accent. But enough about Mark Wahlberg

    The first one really made me laugh. "This is permanent!"
