    Problems at BMC

    You seem deeply confused as to Wokery. The other channels and those I know and speak with see the BMCs environmental and sustainability roles as being absolutely key to its purpose and a vital part of its remit. As to elitism being woke! It's the absolute opposite as it brutally rewards the...

    A positive history of coal?

    I'll never forgive that militant leftist Thatcher for shutting down the coal industry. Thatcher and her woke intellectuals Milton Freedman and Hayak and high on their theory of market economics. If only we had a conservative government in now we could go back to the industry subsidised policies...

    Why do glamping sites always arrange their cabins using a internment camp or council estate layout?

    Croesor Rhosydd - Boat is stuck

    I did it wearing a thick wetsuit prior to the boat was installed. It was slightly daunting jumping in from the abseil point. I also had worries about my harness snagging on something underwater, dislodging some large weight and dragging me down into the depths. On the positive side it was zero...

    I think one of the underrated benefits of free speech is that it allows you to see who the arseholes are. There seems to be a pernicious whining coming from the illiberal right at people judging them for their views. Take Kate Forbes, she has the right to think and say that sex outside of...

    It's market economics you are arguing against. Most (typically younger) people buying for and reading books to children don't want to buy racist, misogynistic, dated fiction. Publishers look at this, and decide in the name of keeping the sales rolling in, to chop out all the pigmy negros etc...

    Pc non-pc cave names

    Is it not responding to consumer demand? Are you suggesting that as soon as something is published, the author looses control over it, is no longer able to edit or amend without some form of reactionary committee censoring their work. A few years ago the Pogues were fully behind the...

    Pc non-pc cave names

    It's all quite "Alice through the looking glass" really. We have a baying mob making media rounds insisting they are being censored whilst they are quite literally trying to restrict the speech and language of a publishing house trying to preserve the brand value of one of its pieces of...

    Pc non-pc cave names

    The first copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (I dimly remember reading) had the Umper Lumpers described as being a labour union busting import of pigmy negro's brought in from Africa and employed under dubious indentured labour practices. This was re-written by Roald Dahl himself as...

    Log burner losing smoke

    I don't see the irony. People selflessly taking a hit to their own health in order to make the future better for all. I find the complaints by those selfish individuals who want to condemn future generations to catastrophic climate change in order to mitigate their own discrete issues with...

    Glad to hear it. They seem a bit more susceptible than the older ones but I'm getting the hang of it with mine.

    How have you got on with the twenty second wait before fully opening? Is it now behaving?

    Log burner losing smoke

    Crack the door for twenty seconds before opening fully and wait until you have embers before opening the door. I've just had a large current generation stove and it's prone to smoking when opening the door if you don't follow those two rules.

    Recommendations for squeezy trips in the Peak.

    I remember The Codeine Connection being tight and squirmy. Going in from the Stoney Flower Pot entrance it provides a shortcut to access Picnic Passage from Falls Chamber, you can then leave via Porth Crawl and the Dynamite Series.

    I am currently somewhere littered with old uranium mines. The rock is sandstone. Has anyone any thoughts on the risks of taking an explore.
