motorised vehicles LB,
Doesn't apply to e-bikes so don't see why e-scooters should/would be any different
Ah but the argument shouldn’t be ‘it doesn’t apply to e-bikes” because if a bike or a scooter has a motor then they should be liable for MOTOR tax

Austin Healey as the face of an ad about online hate. Stop being such a little penis Austin if you don't want hate.

Wow! A lot of hate right there.

I like Austin, he's fun, he can take and give the banter. Always ragging on the fatties. He is also an excellent co comms.
He's biased but so what, aren't we all.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Hate's a bit strong, I enjoy slagging him though.

Being serious, in the lineup of people speaking in the ads he does kind of stand out. Not just because he's a white, hetero, man and thus extremely far down the list of people likely to suffer serious abuse online, but because he spends so much of his time using the word fat as a term of abuse. I know context, context, but it's relentless from him and it normalises an insult which can have serious impacts on people. Actual vulnerable people. He's not exactly taking the position of relative power he Inhabits seriously with regards to preventing online abuse.

Utter nonsense. We get the most but its not recognised as abuse.
Even you sexually bodyshaming a rugby pundit is ok it seems.

All this pontificating from you, a little penis shamer.

Player ratings. Utterly f*cking stupid.
Just saw an article for driver ratings at the Baku F1 race at the weekend. Seriously, driver ratings? Is that not the race result?

Not always no

For example, Verstappen drove a flawless race until, through no fault of his own, his tyre gave way and caused him to have a huge shunt with just five laps to go. And of course Hamilton, who also drove an almost flawless race until the final restart with two laps to go when he went full on attack but some brake setting was wrong and he ran straight on at the first corner and ended up finishing 15th. That's just two examples of drivers who it would be unfair to rate as 15th and 18th best.

I rate Xan as a 10/10 poster.

Peg Leg...a generous 6/10, would be more if it wasn't for his hatred of ratings.

Releasing squads in alphabetical order is a f*cking nonsense. It isn't useful either to journalists or members of the public. Put it in units ...

Front Row:
Second Row:
Backrow:
Halfbacks:
Centres:
Back Three:
