#438350 England Flag Illegal?

Posted by SeanW on Today, 12:16 AM

That is a story from 2008 - the guide I linked to was 2012.  This would imply things have changed somewhat.


However, my personal favourite line from the article: "...could not confirm details of the incident as it had not been logged..."

Seems a little...odd?  Perhaps Clive could offer insight as to how the process works regarding logging things like on the spot fines?


(Side note: chap in the article drives a Corsa...IMO, that's criminal enough and the Officers should have had it crushed in front of him!!)

#438341 England Flag Illegal?

Posted by SeanW on Yesterday, 11:37 PM

The law regarding FLYING flags isn't all that restrictive for the average man on the street.  This is the "Plain English Guide" produced by the government: https://www.gov.uk/g...flags_guide.pdf


Can you provide any (verifiable) examples of people receiving fines for displaying them?


I can only think of one reason that people would be done for it.  That's if the flags were being deliberately used to offend.


(Also, the Union Flag in the back of your car is upside down)

#438340 Silly Games

Posted by SeanW on Yesterday, 11:27 PM

Does anyone else play silly games wherever they go?


Mine are shouting "CAR TWIN!!" whenever I see another Avalon Mk2.5 Focus or "Hey, nice colour!" when I see the colour.


I also have a habit of parking next to any that I see...aaannnddd I've started taking photos of it now lol


First one here is at a motorway services last weekend - can't remember which one I was at though

2014-12-20 23.05.48.jpg


Second is at B&Q in Fareham

2014-12-20 23.04.58.jpg

I also followed one for a while on the M25 last night - was quite amusing (to me)...EO09 --- if you're on here lol


And just for good measure, the one I submitted to the Photo Location Game.  This was taken at The Pear Tree in Cleethorpes back in August



Come on then folks - post your silly games and piccies :D

There was a study done a few years ago. The aim was to determine the most stressful horn sound

The winner: Fiat Punto :P
The least stressful: V***hall Zafira.

Although the Astra came in a close 2nd to the little Italian Pit Pony

#436163 Really Annoyed!! Fed Up Of Fob Offs! (Insurance & Accident Re...

Posted by SeanW on 12 December 2014 - 10:29 AM

They didn't record the call...which probably worked in my favour.

Woman at head office suggested it. At no point in any phone call was I informed that it may be recorded.

For me it was very much a matter of principle - I do not like being lied to or being called a liar. If I thought I was in the wrong, I would have held my hands up and accepted it.

Going to nip and get a quote for the work later. No doubt sit down and have a coffee whilst I tell my story lol

Same at sea..."Ohh, this looks to be a Q**** watch..."


*WHAM* Neptune himself responds with bad weather, a thousand fishing vessels and a few ships not acting in accordance with the IRPCS


It is generally acceptable to say "good watch" because you can twist the meaning of good quite easily :D

Babies are tougher than we give them credit for!

My oldest and dearest friend had a little boy backin February. He suddenly stopped breathing - luckily his Mum was there and had the presence of mind to administer CPR. Turns out he had a hole in his heart.

To look at the little bugger now, you wouldn't even think he'd had a cold!!

Please pass on a huge hug from me to little Tadhg and Vicki - take a man hug for yourself too!!
