  1. No point talking to me. It has been made quite clear that I know nothing. I am unable to assist. I would suggest that you speak to the forums resident legal and riding experts of which there are a few on this forum. I only posted a comment because of the crap which was being spouted and which would give the experts on here a chance to make their comments. There are several people on this site who will be able to provide the benefit of their legal and riding expertise who are far more knowledgable and qualified than me.
  2. Hence my caveat. But even then, primarly liability still lies with the driver of the trailer vehicles, and which is why I mentioned "Contrib" as the other side will try it on to reduce their degree of liability, and secondary liability may also rest with the person warning approaching traffic. And the secondary liability issue in such cases has happened a lot in recent years.
  3. As I am sure the legal experts on this site will confirm, this is a case of what is called strict liability and lack ofduty of care on the part of the driver reversing the trailer, and there is quite a bit of case law on crashes of this nature and the Highway Code has very little bearing. The other side will try and alledge a degree of contributory negligence, but it is unlikely to succedd (I will add the caveat that this of course is always depending on the evidence and all the circumstances being known) but a rider on the major carriageway hit by someone r somethin g emerging from a driveway, junction or entrance will always have primary liability in their favour.
  4. The offer remains in place, so just a little bump of the thread for the benefit of those who missed or have not seen the original post or new members who may not be aware.
  5. Unlikely. It was made quite clear to me by some of your members that my presence was no longer welcome, and you have plenty of experts.
  6. I know I don't come here anymore, so please excuse me for interupting and showing my face, but I thought some of you would appreciate the below offer Some of you I know choose to wear textile jackets rather than leather. Some of you may be thinking about changing your textile jacket. Have you or are you considering an airbag jacket? If you are thinking about a new jacket, and if you are thinking possibly of an airbag jacket, then have a look at https://www.airvest.co.uk/ and if hou decide to take it further then quote HUDGELL10 and it will entitle you to a 10% discount. I have seen these jackets in operation for real and they are superb. They are not the cheapest, but then quality never has come cheap, although in reality they are on a par cost wise with other quality jackets. If you are coming to the Ace on Friday, Nick from Airvest be there as our guest and will also be on hand and demonstrating the jackets as well as being able to answer any qustions. But the offer is ongoing, not just for Friday. Hope this is of interest?
  7. You lot win....... You beat me, I am gone. Happy now?
  8. Mrs TC has been out in Vienna for the past 10 days visiting her brother who has lived there for over 10 years. She was due back into Heathrow tonight about now (7pm ish) and it is my job to collect her and her mother as her youngest brother is too bone idle to get off his arse and put himself out. Anyway, I had forgotten until a few days ago that Reading are live on the box against Cardiff, so when she emailed me, I joking asked if she could either come home a day early or stay another day and come home on Tuesday. I got a few choice words at that suggestion, as she really only goes out to jeep her mother company and is usuallu bored stupid by about day 5. Anyway, got an email this morning. Flight cancelled. She will be coming home tomorrow (Tuesday) as I wanted, but she has to go via Madrid So departs Vienna mid morning, flies down to Madrid and then a connecting BA flight back to Heathrow. So now, she is coming back to T5 instead of T3 which makes life easier with all the changes going on at the moment, and I can now enjoy the game without being interupted. RESULT! I assured her that I didn't rig it, honest
  9. What? I've noticed that you often comment on the ineptitude of those who are the "front line". Lately you've had pops at the police - beat bobbies and traffic, paramedics, undertakers, GPs etc... and in all cases you apparently had superior knowledge/saved the day. I can understand your greater knowledge in traffic law but struggle to see the cross over to medicine. In one swipe you're pop-pooing >decade of academic qualifications of the individual and however many decades of research based on your individual experience and a straw poll of a few people you know. . *Well the abstract at least, you have to pay $51 to read the whole thing. Sorry Stu, I am going to let fly. I had a pop at the Parmaedics and undertakers in respect of one particular incident, and I made it quite clear that I was surprised me as it surprised a lot of people. So, I take it I am not allowed to have a gripe? Or is that reserved only for people like you? Get real! I have at no time said anything about having superior knowledge, (especially when it comes to medical matters, triage or front line medical treatment) and would never deem to do so (there are others here that like to show that they are the experts and are the only ones allowd to make comment). And quite often I have made it clear that if someone knows better, then please let me know because I am happy to be corrected if I am shown to have got it wrong, and there have been a number of occasions where I have been happy to be corrected. Traffic cops I think I am entitled to and I have earnt the right to have a pop at them, and I do not recall saying anything about local bobbies other than the fact that when I had a gripe about the paramedics and the undertakers, I said that the local cops were equally disgusted at the stance taken by the said paramedics and undertakers. As far as GP's are concerned, again, I have mader a comment based on personal experience. I have not made any comment about having better knowledge, I started this thread simply to find out if others had been prescribed this drug and had experienced a similar problem. On top of that my family have had a bad experience of the local GP, but I also said that my treatment when I was admitted was brilliant and beyond reproach and I will be forever grateful to them and I cannot praise them highly enough But on the other hand, although I don't deal with them personally, I also see a lot of medical negligence cases come in which are dealt with by colleagues who specialise in such matters, and the stories are often harrowing and it appears so easily avoidable. So before having a pop, get your bloody facts right. I have nothing but respect in the main for all the emergency services having spent 25+ years on the front line myself, having worked with Fire and Ambulance services in some harrowing situations, having spent many an hour in A & E and down the Mortuary working with staff, but of course you don't bother reading those aspects do you? I have made a few observations on a few issues that have arisen recently or based on first hand experience. They are my opinion and count for nothing. I find it offensive when a jumped up little shit (well actually a couple of jumped up little shits) tell me what I can make personal observation about and don;t even have the courtesy to read it in the context of what the post was about in the first place. However, it seems that everuyone else can say what they like about whoever they like and that is OK providing it is not me making that comment. Finally, if members here consider me a know it all, judgemental, opinionated and have no interest in any opinion I have and want me to shut up and go away, then I will be happy to do just that. I know that there are others here who have made it clear that they have better knowledge and experience than I do, you clearly have an issue with me (as dows one other individual), so put a case forward to Stu and the moderators to have me removed and I will accept their decision. In the meantime if you don't like what I say, then hit the ignore button against my name.
  10. ? GP - General Practitioner.. not a Specialist or an expert or anything reassuring like that, just General.. Ah, got you About right though
  11. That really makes things as clear as mud I just got my new prescription for my other meds today and the statins was not included (they forgot to do them as they are a new presecription) and so I have decided that I will finish off the current 5 remaining tablets but I am not going to get replacements. The meds that keep me alive work perfectly well
  12. In Hospital and in the Cardiac unit in particular, I have nothing but praise and admiration. In all the years I have been going in and out of A & E with work, they have been superb, even when I had to go in with this, which what warfarin does when you get a bruise (and sorry for the horrible sight This was caused by slipping down 2 steps 18 months ago and I still have bruising) they were brilliant. It is at GP level I have the problem By the way, this bruise eventually over the next couple of days extended down to just above the back of my right knee, across my thigh and up to my waist and then across to my left thigh. All because I slipped on a wet step at a Restaurant and slipped down two steps.
  13. Not at my local surgery, I have very little faith or confidence in them. One Doctor told me over the phone that I was paranoid when I asked them to come and see my daughter who was very ill. His diagnosis over the phone was that she was just off colour despite not having seen her and she would be right as rain the following day. She had meningitis (both viral and bacterial) and to this day I remain thankfull that I got her into the car and down to the Hospital. 2nd Doctor diagnosed my father in law with a muscle strain sent him home and told him to take a couple of asprin. 24 hours later he was admitted to Hospital and the muscle strain was diagnosed as terminal lung cancer Doctor even asked me to tell her about the symptoms for heart failure as she didn't know. And there have been other issues, so no, I don't have much confidence. I am due at the cardio unit quite soon so I will probably ask them who I do have 100% confidence in, but I asked here simply because I was interested to know if others had experienced similar issues and what they had done if that was the case.
