  1. Thanks for the greetings!! YES, I am back in't UK!! But NOT as able as I used to be!! But gotta shift the property in France now is all............. £40,000 or equivelant Euros, PLUS taxes. We paid 12,500 8 years ago on the 87,500 euros it cost us.
  2. Nice to be here?? I'll see eh?? Chris
  3. I have several specimens of various scopes to clear (I have ALLSORST to cear from France!) But first up is the scopes. 99% are new, some are cheap chinese copies and I also hve som Bushnells. they are mostly Mil dot with red and green illuminated reticules 20 or 24mm tubes, some I think are even fitted with a 20mm picatinny rail so will take a laser and torch. The Busnells are as I recall actually NOT marked a s such but I reckon they are seconds nas patches of ??Glue show in reticules BUT only out if sites and here are also tooling marks on the c sapanner slots again they do NOT effect the sights. do have others like 6 to 24 x50 I think? 3 to9 x 50,s etc. And cheap as chip 4x20 with laser. Also got red lasers and bore scope lasers in red and green. Stil hve contact for agents in France/china so if you fancy something quite easy to get?? Please message me if at all interested? May also sell at least one PCP OH! Yes and several 200 300 bar bottles all untested apart from mine?? And plus postage. CO2,s?. Scopes to start at £22 with mounts. Lasers £10 plus mount anything else by negotiation. And again plus post! Chris
  4. Are you using a Bookmark?? Or perhaps on the UK site for one and the .com on the other??
  5. Probably, unless you know better! Just watching this programme on Quest +1 And another to follow so will be having another late one tonight! Well I say late? As normally abed by 10 or 11. But tonight the old knees said different. (old BEING THE OPERATIVE WORD! Wife was aching a bit so she went at 7. having taken a double do of her preffered pain killers. So I stood up after Emmerdale at 19:30 and OH DEAR! NO WALKY!!?? I was totally unable to walk and in fact nearly fell over, and as I have not touched a drop of alchohol for two weeks, well yes I was a bit worried. BUT as the Doctors letter said this morning I have NOTHING at all to worry about?? Nothing but what the MRI showed 6 months ago which I do NOT need repeating as I am now back inthe UK. Yes go figure! I am even so it seems taking toooo much Morphine not TOOOOOOO much but the cost is toooooooo much!!!?? OH yes and I am now a cat 1 diabetic?? Shame they omitted to let me know eh?? Anyway I did get to walk to the sink unit instead of headbutting it and went to bed. So thtat's how I ended up watching this programme.Had to get upagain at 11 afyer a rather nasty Nightmare (Neatly **** the bed!) BUT WHAT a ruddy ship! Made in China and put together in North Korea it is and you really have to see it to appreciate the shear size of the huge pieces etc.it. BUT best thing it is an MFI ship! I.E. It is modular and they actually put together one of these modules EVERY 3 days!! But to appreciate it as I say you have to watch it. each unit or module is 100% the same! NO excuses! Just 3 days solid of welding and cutting. And then moving it 5 to 9 pieces at a time to ship it and that takes around 4 days at a time. I could tal;k about it for ages (What do you mean NO surprise there then!!) If you do have it and appreciate engineering watch it on QUEST and of course QUEST +24. I get it on Talk Talk TV top up (Brilliant TV/Telephone package!!) AMAZING!! From 2300.
  6. But on seeing this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dewalt-De9075-Nicd-Battery-Pack-12-Volt-2-4-Ah-Battery-Powertool-/350835320255?pt=UK_Hand_Tools_Equipment&hash=item51af6a25bf I reckon I'll make mine last a couple more years and if neccessary replace tne batteries myself?? Mmmmmmmmmmm????
  7. See what you MEAN!! BLOODY liberty!!!! Ruddy immigrants are even taking over other PYTHONS songs now!! He SHOULD BE SINGING It's alright surely???
  8. Sorry missed this as been chasing none existant benefits again! Quite right Anders old lad ONLKY one thing lets your post down though. I used to PAY for everything in France as I am of the opinion (Funny eh me having an opinion eh?) that you should NOT sponge off of any country you decide to reside in as I did. I paid my way for EVERYTHING I was asked to. the ONLY thing I SHOULD have got free was my medical treatment as I have an incurable disease (And that is EU wide.) And my Taxes as I am assessed at OVER 40% disabled. Funnily enough something I do NOT get offered in the UK? I am employed by HM and get nowt and go to France and get a rebate on taxes of around 2.5k?? But no sorry I DID pay for it all AND was better off for it! Mortgage of 1.5%, a BIG walled Garden with a 5 bed detatched house, a spare 1 bed house in the Garden and some BIG sheds!? Here I pay 450 per month to rent a 2 up and one down. And get NOTHING extra apart from stuff I MAY be expected to get as an EU resident I.E. medical care. So france is all in all BETTER for me?? Now what was it you were saying about incomers??
  9. Section 35(2) of said act. care to read it and tell me what it says?? LITTLE part of the stupid at times act that MAY surprise some?? Thats a google on section 35(2). chris
  10. OR a refugee or a Romanian, Pole, Black or anything but born and worked ALL my life in the UK paying taxes, Fighting wars getting injured whilst in the employ of HM whilst serving in the Royal Navy for 14 years, so that I can no longer walk properly (Make that at ALL really!) Tell me WHY is it the bloody asylum seekers can get ALL they want and me who has worked since 15 and sent 14 years in the RN can get FECK ALL?? And I do mean NOTHING!! No Rent or Taxes (Council) No Mobility (Now cannot walk more than a couple of feet with NO pain!) Keep **** myself because of damaged nerves in my spine. And the wife?? She is worse in the effect she has M.E. without the serious side, called something that gives pain ALL the time and just makes you wanna sleep! (Fibromyalgia!) Possibly the Pain Killers, so called why?? Don't kill pain anyway!! We have just come back from 7 years in France, I liked France even though we got nothing from the French except sh1t. We at least COULD just about afford to live there. But we paid 75k (Euros) for the house. I have spent I reckon around 30k on it?? And it is now worth conservatavely around 10k less than when we bought it!! BIG was 3 bed and now possibilty of 5 beds! Four of which will be en-suite. And plans for the fifth as well. As I say a BIG detatched house with 4 to 6 foot walls. A say one bed Gite and a double garage shed type thing. Two other garages come sheds one attached to the Gite and one to rest of sheds etc, and one bone dry small shed with a cobbled froor. Private drive the ONLY way into the property with a Video entrance cover. LARGE top of the range Willy Balls Kitchen in Oak and ALL mod con's. W/M's and dryer OUTSIDE in the Cave/cellar. LARGE decked area, new windows to one side in the front (Used to be a shop) Rest of windows down to taste (They do want replacing) At a cost I reckon of around 1000 euros if you use the shop we used in Nantes!! We did a plate glass window the Insurance company wanted to replace at a cost of 2,300 euros for I think it was 800?? NO contest, local bloke a GGOD friend of hours took one day total (Two half days as he had to build a dwarf wall first) And then fit the four windows we bought at 115 euros each and we paid him (Well he WANTED 200 Euros) I am pretty sure we gave hime 250 as his son helped, but he said MORE tobacco for me then! So I don't really know what he was on about! But anyway, Back to the story, yes we applied for rent Rebate (As having to rent 2 up one down terrace...........Sorry broke off to listen to neighbours raging against the whatsit! (Arguing with each other.) Costs us 450 a month. Council tax, in France as I am a WAR PENSIONER and am assessed at 40% for now! It is good enough to get a FULL rebate of ALL taxes there. BUT in GOOD OLD UK/England where I got the injuries if you like? Whilst serving in the RN what started as problems with the old knees became Osteo-arthritis and now is Rheumatoid Arthritis. And believe me when I say it hurts it BLOODY hurts sometimes. A bit like having a couple of footballs sewn into your knees!! Oh yes I cannot get Carers allowance that was DSS's call, I SAID I would not qualify and he said TRY anyway. two sets of SAME formt for under 16's and over 65's I eventually get a form for the under 65's but reading the front page you KNOW you do not qualify!! And surely enough I get back TWO letters EXACTLY the same saying I do NOT qualify!!! HOW MUCH DOES ALL THAT SH1T COST EH???? Bloody Pathetic. I cannot qualify for anything but the stupid pathetic gits who run the show can waste that money on me and HOW many others?? I DID submit IN TIME a docket for DLA at highest rate AND mobility. They LOST IT! And so another was despatched, TOO bloody late to claim? AGAIN what's all that about?? And so I am "INVITED" to submit a claim for PIP!!! And guess what?? Well guess first time and guess SH1T and NO I cannot claim that!! BUT they sent me a form anyway.Guess what it is the same as? But a BIT better phrased Questions I think?? And again guess SH1T first time!! DLA, that's right!! I flicked through it as I did with the DLA and apart from being able to read and work out what signs mean and one other I forget now what it is, breath I think!! All the rest I am either top rate or middle rate and I score I think twenty on paper. 12 is enough for higher rate? BUT I don't even qualify to fill the bloody thing in????? So WHY send it in the first place?? By the wayI asked for this on the 14th of december after getting back on the 12th to the UK! I also got myself a form to fill in for my Bank deatails first?? CLASSIC EH!! The word from the teamleader was so they COULD pay the money in quicker IF I was awarded the PIP?? THEN they decide IF I can fill the forms in (Qualify) BUT send out the forms first!! And then IF you qualify on paper you attend a center to be checked over by a Doctor? THEN and ONLY then if you pass they use the answers from the first paper to pay you. The first paper which I have used my Mums account for as I don't HAVE my own account. For which I will anyway have to submit a new paper to get paid into MY account which will cause MORE delays as the account is NOT in my name so they will have to investigate the claim ALL the way through again....YOU COULD NOT MAKE THIS UP could you???? WELCOME to the UK?? The what?? Which Country??? THE UK!!! But there's NOT there is NO such country? It does not exist?? There is England, Scotland, Ireland Northern, Sorry Northern Ireland and Wales, this is Great Britain plus a few other ??Principalities?? BUT the UK is NOT a country so WHY do you insist on calling it as such?? RUSSIA is a country, Egypt is a COUNTRY. even ISRAEL is a COUNTRY, so is England!! But UK is NOT! My haven't things changed somewhat!! And sad as I am to admit it I think I MAY find myself BACK in France again. In France they DO call you a Knobhead. BUT they don't try to HIDE IT!!! Chris (STUCK?? in the UK/England

  13. Yes tis' true I am BACK in the UK! Personal Reasons but happy to be herer though sad at having to waste the best part of 7 years of toil and MONEY. left a house I paid 55k for and now it is worh what someone is willing to pay?? Around 45k?? And after 7 years of mortgagage at 416 per month?? BUT had to do it as HM GOV. in the shape of the SPVA (I am a WAR Pensioner) owe me the thick end of 10k POUNDS! IN Expenses and benefits/compo! I now am unable to walk at all on a GOOD day and yet the MEDICAL expert who replied with a knock back to my so called PROBLEMS said unequivecally that my problems do NOT stem from my Knees which ARE part of my accepted claim but my back which is NOT accepted?? The expert who has NEVER met me at all? But since my last medical exam 18 years ago my accepted conditions have gotten NO worse?! Sorry but EVEN when the old back hurts I still need to get to a toilet etc! aND SO i DEDUCE SHE has lied to me by the manner of which she has replied and no help from them has forced me to come back to the UK and I am going to purchase in the slaes a Flask and a Put up Bed and a GOOD sleeping bag. then next you will see is me on the front of the Sun showing them off in the foyer of the SPVA's foyer. THEN lets see who gets anywahere?? Honestly I do feel like doing that. BUT whatever just GOOD to be back in the BOSOM of the people I mostly know and trust. Merry Christmas. Chris Goddard
