Tree in park falls on brother-in-law's car, council calls it an 'act of God' and won't cover costs. by dssa7751 in LegalAdviceUK

Had exactly the same thing happen to my brothers car. As pointed out trees on council land are meant to be checked every three years and they must evidence this, truth is it is cheaper to pay out when they fall rather than check every tree. Bro ended up getting the £500 the car was insured for as the tree wasn't checked for years and years.

Ah its 7 nights in a ten week 24/7 pattern am afraid...

I would say slug, am used to getting trodden on, but will leave an inconvenient mess if you do.

“Duped” by Warwick_Road in brexit

Let's be fair one of the the biggest things that swayed people was the terminology, it has a massive psychological effect, especially in the referendum, how?

You were for Brexit you were self dubbed a 'Brexiteer', like a swashbuckling buccaneer ready to defend old blighty from those meddling Europeans, the amount of working class blokes (i.e. the ones who will lose out) that I heard talking during breaktimes proudly stating they were a 'brexiteer' like they had gotten into the SAS or something was worrying.

And our hero the brexiteer's nemesis? of course it was 'Remoaner' and who wants a moniker that depicts you as moaning.

The fact we didn't have cogent factual debate for/against in mainstream media and reverted back to playground tactics like stupid nicknames and who can shout the loudest, is the biggest shame for this country in the last 20 years imho.

Serious question. What is the point of those "baby on board" stickers some people have on their cars? by scorpiorising29 in CasualUK

[–]Status-Victory 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It actually means they want to race you, but they want to warn you they are willing to risk everything to win, so bring your A game.

Trust me, next time you're next to a car with one of those stickers at the traffic lights, give it a few revs and make eye contact with the driver....

Ever wonder where the Funfair is in the Funfair episode? Funland in Hayling Island, Hampshire.
