    i understand people have family commitments and work to go too, but if u cant find the time to post in nearly a full calendar year well its time to go...
    there is no point in buttering it up and being all nice about it...
    either man up, or step aside is the way to go...

    I moved over here when I was 18 so never experienced the high insurance costs. My younger brother told me that his premium for a £1000 mini was £2500 when he was 20. **** that.

    Heh!

    I guess part of the reason for the high insurance is the likes of this story I was told from a trusted source

    <copied from an email to my mates last year>

    Afternoon ****ers,

    So, whilst I was in Donegal recently, a neighbour of the dad's, Paddy the Nurse told me a story that I had to share.


    Now Paddy is not a nurse and his name's not Paddy but that doesn't matter right now.


    He told me of some young 'Buck' about my age who had gone into the North and bought one of those fancy BMW jeeps for a wile lot of money. He insured it on NI plates and then made enquiries as to having it officially imported. He was somewhat dismayed as to the cost of the import fees so took the jeep back to the North in order to request a refund. The dealer told him where to go as there was nothing wrong with the car.


    Now this young buck was a bit of a part time rally driver so a few weeks later he suited up in his overalls, helmet etc and late at night he decided to go at full tilt into a corner with his hands off the wheel. Lo and behold, he wrecked the car.


    He got out, dusted himself off and called his brother with the instruction to meet him with a set of clothes. His brother did so, clothing was changed and all the rally gear was taken away.


    The garda were called and he was taken to the General in an ambulance. Unsurprisingly he got a clean bill of health.


    A couple of weeks later he had a cheque in his hand to the value of what he paid for the car.


    The young buck's name?




    He is known to all as Psycho!


    There can be only one, can't there?
