Even the dodgy eBay sellers who don’t ask for docs don’t make “show” plates any more!


Wifey works on reception at CAB one day a week. She had a bloke in who was having housing issues because he had a criminal conviction for making number plates without going through the correct procedure. He was a signmarker and noticed a gap in the market, set up a website and would make any plate with any spacing for anyone.
He didn't go to prison but was fined under the proceeds of crime legislation.
Wife said his life seemed pretty ducked up

At some point in the (hopefully distant) future I will have a flat in Ayrshire for rent at 300 PCM (shiter discount available) - there’s photos in the open forum.

I could do it at c.265 a month for a shiter who was willing to forego an agent and have a direct contract with me

I keep saying openrent.co.uk

Doncaster.

It does as not many of the small towns have big supermarkets, just smaller branches that charge crazy 'tesco local' type prices. My lass lives on an Island that has two co-ops, people still take the £27 return (car & driver) ferry to the mainland to do a monthly shop as it works out cheaper.


Doncaster. Could be worse, could be Rotherham, Denaby or Mexborough.

Regarding property: I live in a 3-bed terraced house on a narrow street with no off-street parking. We* bought it for £89k in 2005, re-decorated it and fitted gas central heating, and a couple of years back it was valued at £180k. :shock:

Aberdeen property prices are mental. If I ever get round to buying a property of my own, it will be in a cheaper part of Scotland.






*my parents bought it, then me and my 3 siblings have all lived in it at one point or another, as a mortgage on a cheap property was cheaper than rent (as in, we pay our shares of the mortgage rather than rent). It's just luck that it's turned into such a goldmine.

BBC Scotland News today.


Older cars face Glasgow city centre ban.

"Older cars will be banned from Glasgow city centre in four years time after councillors agreed to extend a low emission zone (LEZ) to all vehicles.
An LEZ will apply to 20% buses from the end of 2018, rising to 100% by December 2022. Cars will need to meet the strict standards from the end of 2022.
After that date petrol cars made before 2005 and diesels built before September 2014 will not be allowed in the zone". . . .

"Drivers entering the zone in cars made before these dates will be fined, with automatic number plate recognition systems being set up around the city centre".

Doesn't mention how large the zone is. Enforceable in practice? Doubt it.

Could still be a PITA for Glasgow Autoshiters tho. (I posted this half an hour ago in Captn 70's Triumph thread then moved it here instead to save messing up that ongoing Triumph thread).

It was Mrs T's birthday today, and she fancied going to France for the day. So off we went, tunnel this time.

After a nice lunch in Le Touquet we strolled and I did some spotting (although this 20 was a lazy sat in car spot).

 

A 20?! Finding one of them would be a definite stop the car (having turned around if need be) and get out job for me in France. On a longish journey I'll sometimes forego lesser spots in the hope of stumbling across something like that.

I won't be surprised if that spreads further. They keep threatening about it in Bristol. To be honest, with all hot, still weather at the moment you can really feel the pollution when breathing around the city. So I'm pretty much for it.

Often they have exemptions for classics though.

Glasgow city centre's a hellhole for driving anyway since the council labelled every other road a 24hr buslane and started soaking drivers for millions every year; I'd rather rub my bobby up a roughcast wall than go there in a car.

As for property it might be more expensive than Doncaster but it'll be the same as most of the rest of Scotland. My sister recently moved to Dunoon and it was super cheap.

I though the salary banding went between NHS board? Is the banding not potentially different for Argyll and Bute?

Dunoon prices are quite depressed even by Argyll and Bute standards because it's still not worked out what it's for since the Yank sub base upped sticks in 1992 and the recent shitness of the ferry to Gourock caused a lot of commuters to sell up. The local council are shit and have let the place end up looking like an east german baltic resort circa 1972, which doesn't help.

Trent are in the shite anyway as some sort of law is being put in place in the near future in and around derby. The wife is a bus driver for yourbus and they have just bought in a brand new fleet of buses and the 63 plate merc citaros are being sold off. Majority of Trent buses are mid to late 2000s buses but there is a few early 2000s still doing the rounds. Trent keep bumping prices up to stay afloat and yet still cutting services. Yourbus keeps the prices low and have had to buy in more buses for more routes they are taking over. Arriva in derby still have some early to mid 90s rattle traps and are cutting services all over as can't make ends meet anymore. They were purchased by a German group not too long back and the word is they are being sold off again sometime soon and yourbus are in talks about buying them out.

Why would you want to drive into a city centre anyway?

Its not like you'll get very far or be able to go very fast, short of salt marshes a city centre has got to be the worst place to drive.

 

And thats before we mention air pollution.

Or are you going to tell me that car exhaust gases are perfectly fine?
