Jk is politics just plain banned or is it to be posted in Other Stuff

This hopefully was a post on fuel, unfortunatly to get to the root of problems posts might have to dig a little deeper so to speak, fuel is a big part of ribbing and needs to be discussed thats all

By all means discuss fuel prices, but I don't see that the political reasons that may or may not affect the price have any relevance to boating.

It's not a matter of principle, I just find it deeply boring. We already have more than enough opinionated ranting as it is!

If you want to debate politics then you could try one or more of these newsgroups:

alt.politics
alt.politics.uk
uk.politics.misc

You can access these via groups.google.com or with a newsreader such as Agent

Alternatively there are many forums dedicated to talking politics, such as:

www.debatepolitics.com
forums.debatenation.com
www.urban75.net/vbulletin/
www.npboards.com

Well, I drive a 2.0 litre automobile, my wife a 2.3 litre. I reduced my daily commute from 50 miles to 0 six months ago. I'm waiting for a new front fork for my city bike, so I can do more errands that way, rather than by car. I want the offshore wind farms locally, far more than I want an offshore LNG terminal.

My rib will remain ashore and dry this long holiday weekend, due in part to the cost of fuel. Oh, and because my wife is insisting, with 7 weeks to delivery of the next child, that I start cleaning and painting! I really wanted to head offshore in the rib 10-12 miles to where the whales are, that we saw sailing last weekend.

I did go race sailboats today, and will again on Monday. Won't burn more than a couple of 10ths of a litre.

Very brave of you-- but it wont save the world!!!!!!!!

Ok - we will put a 30 meter high turbine in your garden
Go down to a 1 liter LPG Kia Rio.- Probably the worse **************
Ensure that anybody driving a car greater than 1500 cc is severly ostracised
Walk a lot ( has two very positive attributes!)
Set up a local committee to have a better public transport system
Stop the airco
Buy a horse
Get rid of the local Walmart ( everything comes from China- so when buying there, you are incresaing demand for oil in that country
Close Macdos
Throw out the TV
Cut the electricity at 2100 hrs.
Stop the cental heating/ buy more blankets

Why the hell is it taking so long to get new forks for the bike......dont tell me --- i guessed it --- made in PRC

and SELL THE RIB!!!!!!
