 person-fight!  Grin
 Cottenham IS bad for pikey's & the damage they have caused over recent years, (killing my families livestock & worse)

 ..Surely Wisbech & the surrounding area is now little pedeyborough-come-poland.

 When I visit there, I despair for the future of the english language, ..on one hand theres english speakers WHO I cannot understand due to their convaluted "Landon" speak which honestly comes out as a undefinable garble ..I have to guess initially that they're english, strain to hear cave-vowels.

 Then you have foriegn language partially dependant on the local accent to bring on their english! (shakes head in despair) ...It's a right merry go round!  banghead banghead banghead
 
Little enclave cottenham is trying to spread it's wings here too! ..I can only suggest that you ring up the council & threaten a mass action on their Cambridge based backsides!
 The local CCC states that provisions have to be made for around an additional 39 pitches in the coming year or so.
Someone PLEASE counter that by asking about that additional pitches have been made & enlarged illegally at cottenham by forms of intimidation & spineless councils! ..why then do we need MORE that will do what they want anyhow! ..costing more to gloss over than to solve!

I do not live in Cottenham but a guy who works for me does and says the gypsie issue is totally overblown.

I thought SCDC had spent hundreds of thousands in the high court trying to enforce enforcement orders / injunctions etc. Unfortunately bleedin hearts and all that Human Rights stuff has swung it in the travelling folks favour.

As for the Poles they are fine. I have a polish lodger - an engineer who is as good as gold

yes poles work hard & are nice people!

 Thanks to whoever minus'd me (if it was for the gypsy comment OR for thinking I was out & out prejudiced against all & sundry)

 You try having serious security issues with your property & theft with them traipsing all over your land! ..despite actually helping them out on several occasions our family still had barns, livestock & business burnt out by them. so in all honesty go to hell if you believe me to be prejudiced, the suffering endured by those animals if perpetrated by anyone else would have had them dragged through courts by their hair!

 A very emotive & issue when you see charred animals dead, & others dying over a period of months!

 I hope whoever marked me down reads this & gets off their high horse!

The forum only lets you award points to anyone once an hour. So that would take just over 4 days! They would deserve a prize! And don't worry about the points - the 'wily one' seems to give negative points to people as signs of approval, and I reckon I got my -ve ones for correctly telling someone what a kWh etc. was!

Alright Gus - Calm down surrender. Im no fan of travelling folk either having spent most of my life in Cambridge and Norfolk. I know what most of them are really like and not the PC / fantasy world of rokka radio and other right on do gooder propaganda outfits.

As for Cottenham I was just relaying what a colleague who lives there said.

From what you say about your experiences you have my sympathies Smiley

 No worries nick, it was a general piece with no-one getting vollied.

 But when the Cottenham situation means loss of life, property, pets, livestock, screws their business and forces people out of the home & countryside they love it's pretty serious in my books.

 Like I mentioned, when they asked for help they were generally assisted so to do something as despicable as what occurred is not only "doorstep-crappin"  but demonstrates general attitude at face value.

 I can't ignore actions like that, nor can I forgive or be won over by phrases like "in the past" ,.. "a small minority"
 that's their lot! (the Cottenham lot)

 The suffering & the stench was awful.

The first problem is getting people to use the karma system, the second problem is getting the data to mean anything.

Hi All
I`m new to the forum and to solar in general (thanks Ivan for sorting out the registration prob btw).
I couldn`t find an introductions thread so i decided to post a hello here.
In a nutshell, i`m a mad scientist type and Nick`s solar kettle experiment is right up my street Grin
I would like to do something similar once i learn a bit more about evacuated tubes.

All the best
Colin
