Not true.
BG have never let me down, and always repaired (or replaced) any parts.

My 20+ year old heating pump failed a couple of months ago and they were out the next day to fix it - replaced with a shiny new one.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

The M25 J27/M11 J6.

Yesterday my 25 minute journey home became 2.5 hours of hell.

A crash on the M25 backed traffic 3 miles past M11 J7 which is six miles away.

traffic on the roundabout just ignored red light and blocked people trying to leave the motorway.

Then the back road I could have taken was closed, so I had to do an additional 10 miles to get home going away from my home.

Don't get me started on the last second lane jumpers.

Aren't those the witches marriage of a time expired Leyland coach and a couple of coal trucks?

I thought those were meant to be pensioned off years ago.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Received a replacement for a faulty android that would not charge after 5 month, from Studio, but it has a scratched and marked screen, Just phoned them up to say I was sending it back and want a refund, Will get one from Amazon, I saw one at £149 . Any ideas of a decent one ?

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

An android for £150, is it from the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation with GPP?

We've been told plenty of things over the years. Maybe they'll get rid of the Pacers when the electrify the line but more likely they won't.

Still going strong and yes they're a bus body on a freight truck. Also the heating has 2 settings - on or off!!

See above!!!


If I was a cynic I'd wonder if the powers that be have realised that if a day in Manchester isn't bad enough they can make it even worse by using Pacers. I was actually scared on the way back - thought we were leaving the track a couple of times!!


Cheers
