    Its also prohibitively expensive for lots of locals. A single is £35 I think. The average hourly wage in Dover, for example, is about £8.

    The coach is only half an hour longer and is only £11.

    I was involved in the pandemic planning for Swine flu for an NHS region.

    Doesn't take much of an increase to natural death rates to have to buy the coroner a new JCB.

    Swine flu wasn't so much tipped to be pretty bad, as transmittable enough to be taken super seriously. You don't know the potential mortality rate or if it'll mutate until the pandemic is actually happening really.

    Really want to go to Kitzbuhel for the World Cup.

    We go to Wengen for the Lauberhorn every year. Amazing good natured armosphere. The hardcore fans strap snowshoes on and walk up to the start at about 4am with cases and cases of larger to avoid paying the train fare. Dedication to the boozing cause. It's a very long and very steep walk.

    I think it's a bit of a stretch to describe the document in question as a counter terror watch list. It's a list of groups that have gathered or protested in the UK in recent years. It includes visiting international football fan supporter groups for example.

    I think it's intended to be a guide for officers to help identify who is protesting and how they normally conduct themselves.

    Edit: was not for police use, was distributed to teachers to help identify logos and memberships. It's clearly a misguided document but a counter terrorist watch list it is not.

    If anybody had any suggestions for a nice hand made japanese knife that is similar sized to the Rockstead kneckers I'd be very grateful.

    I think the only reason why Jana wants Rockstead is because its the only one she has seen that she likes but hasn't see any others!

    Have you considered basing yourself in Innsbruck and visiting any of the twenty or so resorts within half an hour from there?

    They're all small, lovely and uncrowded and offer a variety of skiing. Quiet slopes means very low pressure for the little one. Can be much cheaper also.

    And if you aren't lucky with the weather, then Innsbruck is a nice city. You could even watch some ski jumping.

    I'd be happy to make a few in various plastics so you can see what works best...

    Can do PLA, ABS and PETG at the moment.

    The designer says they printed in Nylon but PLA also worked too. I think ABS or PETG should be ok. Wouldn't want to buy a reel of Nylon just for this part as Nylon is a bitch to work with .
