And since when have I EVER said I am not Welsh??? Welsh through and through and proud of it - proud of being British as well - or was until Blair and his mob started destroying all the things I was proud of!!!

Yes I HAVE lived all over the world - which is why I am not as blinkered as some and realise that there are good and bad people everywhere!!!

Only a true Welshman could call his boat "Grand Slam" after all.........

Seriously, what seems to me to be happening, more and more, is that we are getting more and more “outrageous” statements from a variety of people. In the real world this generally doesn’t happen too often, because people who make such statements are ridiculed and generally then have the good sense to “wind their necks in”. Here, in fantasyland, there are no such social limits and so the whole thing is in danger of spiralling out of control. Have we not all witnessed the degeneration of reasoned argument and discussion into abuse and even, in some cases, open threats? Where do we draw the line? Should I stop having a pop at an individual, who with his constant, we’ll call the deviations from reality, insults my intelligence? If so will that individual go on, unchecked and risk one day, causing someone some harm that innocently follows some of his preposterous advice? No, Codders, I am not talking about you. I’m not sure you’re a liar… I had you down as a lunatic myself…
So you tell me what a reasonable person should do when he comes across some of this garbage?
I know it’s egotistical of me to call myself “reasonable”, but my psychiatrist says I’m getting better…

That is what happens when you just pick out one EXAMPLE!!!

Maybe I shouldn't bite but the guy is TOTALLY obsessed with slagging off Land Rover's and is totally blind to any other vehicles problems.

I NEVER attack anyone unless I am provoked!!!

As to "lunatic" you may well be right!!!

I have the ability to come on here, compliment Bogib about the Landies he posted pics of, I admire the look of Defenders in particular, but I am also able to come on and post links and articles to real Landrover problems, articles, and threads on the web.

Its likely lots of us will invarably tow a rib from time to time,I believe that the Japs are streets ahead of British engineering, electronics, mechanics and this is hugly evident in their vehicles, and outboards.
This is a fact of life, you might not like spending on Japaneese consumables, would prefer to support local industry, and engineering, and thats nice, but at the end of the day a jeep for me must do the job its asked of, and be reliable.

Landrovers, and its only my opinion, supported by various internet articles, about recalls, failures, breakdowns unfortunatly are built to a very old design, which was once modern, but sadly have been superceeded by far superior Japaneese vehicles, over engineered, and capable range of 4x4s .
Pajeros, Land Cruisers Patrols, for example
I mean come on you didnt see the Taliban driving around in Defenders,
we all know its Toyota down in Austraila where off roading is a daily occurance, never mind towing.
And the reasons that Japaneese vehicles are used, simply they are reliable vehicles, unlike Landrover, which will let you down.

Now if you are an enthuaist and have the time to do the work, maybe a Landy is for you , but I wouldnt risk it, by towing a boat with one , its the one time you need reliability, and cannot be let down

Why are they then still being used by organisations that require vehicles to be 110% reliable? The Coastguard, Bomb Squad, Police, The Armed Forces, The Security Forces.. etc.. etc..
