Kahn's a psychopath globalist nutcase. Target his face. Fire phasers and a full spread of photon torpedos.

Bleedin Hell chaps you're taking as though you actually live under Khans spell. Spare a thought for me. :wave: :lol:

Guys a fuckin buffoon.!!!!!

Now you know why my Capri has been inside my garage for a year but I've saved shitloads of money to spend on buying vinyl records :lol: :lol:


The worrying thing is with the Mayor election coming up with the other options think I will vote for the Count Binface Party....

I kid you not this is a real option. Bet Count Binface would do a better fucking job so he gets my vote but better not tell Siobhan who I'm voting for as she's going Green :lol: :lol:

My favourite was the climate summit COP21 in Glasgow. World leaders and self proclaimed 'elites' flew in from all around the world at enormous carbon cost to sit around and decide 'what to do' about society.

This was at the height of the pandemic when the average Scotsman couldn't go into a pub without a mask and you had to have a vaccine passport to go into many places, yet for our esteemed betters, there was no vaccine passport, no mask mandate, even though they were all inside together shaking hands and eating together.

They spent decades getting us to buy their disposable shit products, now they're talking about the damage "we" are doing to the planet and what the (final?) solution is.

Of course, "they" still want to eat meat, heat their homes with gas, fly and drive wherever they want, it's just "us" that need to change.

Psychopaths. Actual psychopaths are in control.

Yes, this Binny McBinface seems like a suitable candidate. I reckon he'll reinstate the weekly refuse collections too!
Where can I vote? :D

Trouble is Nick, it's spreading. There are ULEZ notices all around where I live, including just a few yards away, drive a few yards from your home and pay for the privilege. Recently an 'under review' sign has been added to them. So who knows but it wouldn't surprise me if the whole country adopts this money making scheme.

I didn't realise it's stopped you driving your Capri for a year though, what a bummer.

It's an excuse to:

1. Get you out of your cars
2. Build a huge network of cameras to track your every move for reasons we don't know yet.

:lol: That remark of mine was a bit tongue in cheek mate. The Capri has been in the garage for many reasons fella. Sometimes you just have to take a bit of a step back for a while when other things crop up and your head or heart is not quite all there. I have been looking after her during this time though and of course had the interior completely re-trimmed. I was hoping to get her out before winter set in but put her on sorn and now just a couple of little things before I get her mot and taxed and back on the road. To be honest the £12.50 every time I take her out is fuckin annoying but it won't put ke off. I know a, few routes i can drive to avoid any cctv camera but for a proper decent drive I'll have no choice but to pay as Tom says there are cctv everywhere now. We got these little mobile smart car cctv trying to catch people out too. When i can register her historic later this year I'm sure i will not have to pay ULEZ as will be exempt but this will probably change.!!

Was going to have a whip - round for you Nick :lol: Exeter has some LTN now and I refuse to go there as it's become a cesspit!

I know quite a few XR members have registered their cars as Historic this week, long may it continue :cheers:

Nick, I`m afraid it`ll be April next year before it`s exempt, it would never be that simple...

Vehicles exempt from vehicle tax

If your vehicle was built before 1 January 1984, you can stop paying vehicle tax from 1 April 2024.

If you do not know when your vehicle was built, but it was registered before 8 January 1984, you do not need to pay vehicle tax from 1 April 2024.

My car has been tax exempt for 6 days now! :D
I haven't got around to registering it as a historic yet though.
