    Settling on the idea of Weymouth 70.3 in 2020 (too fat and unfit this year). Heard good things about it (despite paying for the IM brand) and my parents live 30 miles away which makes the logistics a bit easier.

    Should give me enough time to sell the Aravis and the Colnago to fund something like a Planet-X Stealth TT (SRAM) either new or 2nd hand.

    I think that's some kind of Bullingdon club style hazing ceremony.

    ..but they’re not considering any more extension requests?

    Sure, but they've said that before. It's politics.

    The UK has the unilateral right to revoke A50 but they can only do so in 'good faith'. They shouldn't just do it to buy more time.

    Revoking it, and then having another referendum(s) or a GE specifically fought on a "vote for us and this will be your Brexit" mandate would satisfy the EU that the UK is acting in good faith and now has internal support. (I wouldn't give it much chance at all that the Government could put something out there that would gain a majority support from the public. All of which would hopefully default us into remaining and the country can begin the long process of getting over itself.)

    The Tories (thankfully) fucked up massively by calling the snap general election in 2017. If they'd stuck with their slender majority (propped up by bribing the DUP in the same way) then they would have probably been able to push through the WA first time round and we'd be out by now. *shudder*

    None of the outcomes (Hard brexit, soft brexit, Norway+, BRINO, Remain, etc) will "bring the country back together" as it is just too split on this binary issue so there is little point in looking for a more perfect solution.

    One outcome that's a possibility is a stooge to be put up as Tory Leader to revoke A50 and "give the country some time to heal itself" and better prepare for another referendum on EU membership in 3-5 years' time. One huge kick of the can much further down the road. Once they've taken the flack for that and the public have got used to that idea they can give way for the real new Tory Leader who isn't tarred with that shitty brush.

    I've got some Veloviewer tile bagging rides that could easily take in that tag (and bring it back closer to home), and have Monday's off, but next week is a bank holiday so it'll be family time rather than me time.

    Be much Greener (& easier to count) to get rid of Paper voting forms. Higher chance of rigging outcomes though?

    There's no digital system that's provably 'safe' and not susceptible to manipulation or loss of anonymity.

    (The current system makes it very difficult to break the anonymity side of things and, over the years, has resulted in completely insignificant levels of voter fraud.)

    Scroll down a bit for one answer that may be indicated on the deeds.

    If the fence is the type with posts/supports on one side then usually it belongs to the side with the posts (you give your neighbour the benefit of a nicer looking fence with no visible posts/supports).

    Fulham finally release details of season tickets for next season and confirm they won't be off to ground-share somewhere else (which was a worry).

    Two years scheduled for the Riverside stand refurb. More excited about the reinstatement of public access along the river (on non-match days at least).

    Yep, straight onto dryburgh, then couple of options. Either carry on straight all the way to turn left onto Charlwood

    Just be aware there are 3 primary schools on/near that stretch of Charlwood so avoid it any time between 8.30-9.15 or 2.30-3.15.

    Most of the children know how to cross the roads safely, it's the parents that are the biggest problem, plus the shitshow of SW London hazard-light entitled parking.
