The Jetblack into reading is very good, or at least it was, only use it occasionally if I'm going in to see someone and its not worth the hassle of driving in.

I have occasionally taken the bus sometimes just for a bit of casual sightseeing biggrin.gif

The bus replacement tends to leave at times that feel intuitive, as were the trains until the new timetable. However, this week every train has been technically late; I’ve never known it this bad without extreme weather.

Never mind Andy. Another week of buses for you soon. Something 2 look forward 2.😂

I don’t mind the bus; they are often punctual, have a sensible timetable and usually get a seat.

“Excuse me could you tell me what happened to the 830 Plymouth train please?”
“It was late leaving Paddington”

Thanks

App said 15 minutes late, then disappeared.

Complete cobblers.

Wow, well on form this morning aren't we.
Just wondered...........is there ever anyone on here you ever agree with or do you just enjoy the argument for argument's sake?

Oh well one can only go by experience.

That’s what people tend to do, including myself, but it is a logical fallicy.

There’s few on here I agree with, but if I remember correctly, you were first to contradict my ‘common sence’ point with a pedantic post.

I don’t prejudge; I take arguments on their perceived merit.

In my experience Dyson products, by that I mean their vacuum cleaners, I have never had any other, are over hyped crap!
I am just binning my just over 2 year old cordless as t has packed in and repairs are ridiculously expensive.
My other corded Dyson was also a heap of rubbish giving up the ghost after just exceeding the 2 years again.
Apple are another product which sells by name and not the quality of it's product.
Stopped using iphones after several gave up on me.
Not just me either. many of my family have had similar issues with both over-marketed brand.

Worn out sucking up all the rubbish you spout! tongue.gif

We have had a Dyson for years and is still going; I have had two phones (iPhones) in the last 6 years and only upgraded because I wanted thumb recognition.

Your Dyson is actually a vacuum cleaner.
A Hoover is also a vacuum cleaner.
I prefer a pretty Eastern European maid in high heels to do the cleaning. 😂
Guess I'll have to buy a Dyson after Brexit. No wonder Mr Dyson is so pro brexit!!!

And the definition of hoover is vacuume cleaner irrespective of manufacturer. And we all know that.

No such thing as "road tax" ....no such thing as "bedroom tax".
Neither you nor I pay tax on bedrooms.
Just a pedantic correction on a little anomaly! tongue.gif

Yes they do exist in the same way as my hoover is a Dyson.

The offence of not paying a fine is different and seperate though, even if it is related.

In my statement I said ‘ultimately’ for that reason.

I don't believe that is true.

Non payment of criminal fines or council tax are the only bills which you can be imprisoned for as far as I can tell. Happy to be corrected but I can't find anything to suggest otherwise. Non payment of VED incurs a charge not a fine.

Being found to have a motor vehicle on the road without VED can mean:

Out of Court Settlement (OCS) letter issued.

OCS set at £30 plus one and a half times the outstanding vehicle tax rate.

If settlement is not paid, as a criminal offence the case may be pursued via the Magistrates Court. Penalty is the greater of £1,000 or five times the amount of tax chargeable.

Vehicle may be clamped.

I believe not setting Magistrates' court fines could then lead to prison, even if unlikely.

Breaking the law can put you in jail. Not paying VED won't. But lets not let facts get in the way, this is the NewburyToday forum after all.

Not paying the fine will ultimately land you in gaol.

I don't think VED is a law either is it? Surely that would be an act?

That should save you a few quid then.

No they don't, they're are not paying to use the roads, the only road that motorists pay to use are toll roads or congestion zones, none of which apply to A band motor vehicles or electric.

“Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) (also known as "vehicle tax", "car tax" or "road tax", and formerly as a "tax disc") is a tax that is levied as an excise duty and which must be paid for most types of vehicles which are to be used (or parked) on public roads in the United Kingdom.”

Let's run over it again for you Andy.
We have already established that there is no specific tax to pay for the maintenance of roads ...yes? (See post 57.)
So, although cyclists do not pay VED they pay taxes every day like the rest of us.
QED they pay to use the roads as do we all.

AND I SAID MOTORISTS HAVE TO PAY A CHARGE TO USE THE HIGHWAY THAT CYCLISTS DON’T!

I dont think your post is very clear then. There is no specific charge to use any roads other than the odd bridge and the M6 expressway!

Don’t be daft both of you, a cyclist doesn’t have to pay to use the road, car drivers do!!!
