  1. Please clarify "spammed". How (in the simplest possible terms) can I sign your petition on hospital parking??
  2. 27/5/08.Todays Courier carries an article stating that Flyglobespan are to be prosecuted by the civil aviation authority for supposedly running a plane with a faulty engine pressure gauge. On another count, they are charged for not notifying this fault in the appropriate manner. How can they repair faults when the planes are seldom on the ground long enough for maintanance? Now,remind me , WHO'S safety is at stake here??
  3. Anyone had problems with LTSB in the way they handle Mini Cash Isa's? A legal point perhaps, who is responsible if a staff member makes a mistake through failing to understand a customers instruction? Does the final responsibility lie with the customer to detect such a mistake by checking bank statements? (when you can get one!!) ANY advice would be greatly welcome.
  4. Watch out for this shard outfit. They more or less have monoply in flying out of Eduinburgh to popular holiday destinations. They advertise good flight times in early season (i think without confirmation from airports). After a few weeks, when plane is fairly well booked (and paid for) they contact you with flight times that are normally unacceptable, as these ridiculous times don't allow onward travel arrangements to be honoured. (transfers & collection of property keys). To add insult to injury, no refund is permitted if you want to cancel. Their other trick is to advertise direct fl
  5. Two things good buddies, there is no excuse for having a phone in your hand while driving as the technology is here to allow conversations without taking hands off wheel. Don't get me started on tailgateing by HGV's. If your tailgated by an hgv at above 56mph(except going downhill) report them to police as this means the speed limiter has been tampered with and carries severe penalties. If your tailgated at under 56mph then use some common sense and courtesy and keep out of their way. If you want your shops filled with goods, especially fresh food, don't hinder these guys from doing their job
  6. majorca is a wonderful island to holiday on. the diversity of the island means that there is something to suit everyone. The south facing side of the island is where you want to go for beach based holidats. this contrasts with the beautiful mountain scenery in the northern side. But be warned, in some resorts, especially the Palma Nova peninsula and Palma City, street touts are at work targeting brit holidaymakers. they work the scratch card [problem]---you've won a free holiday. No chance.this is a ploy to get you to sit through a 4-5hr brainwashing session in an office in Palma(free taxi i
  7. The reply to the thread re straddled parking bays was right in respect that there are no Criminal laws relating to private land. I suspect from your reply that you wished to make the point that this type of parking was typical of attitudes to life in general today, where there is no pride in doing a job correctly, or as my old boss used to say "B----y Slack A---d. Low standards of driving attract fines if the Road Traffic Act is infringed. Your comments re the Institute of Advanced Motorists left you wide open to this thread being taken completely out of context. If you are just below the
  8. Well Scaniaman, you certainly stirred up a hornets nest amongst Britains Best Drivers. I am a semi retired transport consultant and have spent much of my work giving reports, evidence and advice on transport related matters. Whilst most of your postings are correct, perhaps your choice of words were what incited adverse replys, mostly from the ill informed, useing terminology not becoming of what one expects on these forums. In your defence, I shall attempt a full and factual analysis of your critics, in a separate reply.
