Fair to say that 'mumpsimus' is the same as Type III.
For the Badgers, Norwoods and Woodys of this world, I propose an extended class - Type III bis - which translates as double Type III ...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

But what was pretty much missed in all of this was that the LDNPA was leading the way, weighing up what people wanted and finding ways to deliver. They were professional about it. They likely didn't like us very much but that was set aside to get the job done and that's how it should be. Bill - you...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Bill - you and I both know Novie and like you, I am utterly appalled by his treatment over the number plates. For more than 20 years, he has worked tremendously hard, with great dedication and complete honesty to restore K7 and honour the memory of Donald Campbell. He of all people did not deserve t...

Re: Happy Birthday, Donald!!

And that, folks, is the joke that Tonia assured me was Donald's favourite. :-) - I have never heard that before!! The story you relate with such obvious good memories underlines the need for the Bluebird Project and the Ruskin Museum to get round a table and resolve any differences. However, in the...

Re: Happy Birthday, Donald!!

An interesting interlude at the Windermere boat club by the sound of it!

Are you able to share Donald’s favourite dirty joke on this Forum ?

I have just realised that Donald Campbell would have been 99 years old today.

Happy Birthday Mr Campbell!

Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

Litigation is like surgery - you only opt for it if all other remedies have failed, then you pay a top surgeon to cut and curette the badness out and, if it's done properly, you then have a much better standard of living for many years afterwards as a result. It's an excellent process of which I ha...

Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

Indeed - litigation is an expensive business. I caught some employees being very naughty in 2012 and it took almost eight years and a great deal of money to deal with the matter but at the same time it was also a very useful education. Considering what you say above, I am guessing that your experie...

Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

Surely the parties concerned do not wish to see this pointless deadlock continue? We could issue proceedings to have a judge declare the 2013 agreement binding and they could either find a big pot of money to argue the toss or maintain radio silence while we do it then find themselves on the wrong ...

Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

As for getting around a table - please don't imagine that the BBP is in any way hindering that process. We've been banging on about it for a very long time even going to far as to say it live on BBC radio only to be told it'll be a 'long time coming'. Why that should be is more than we can explain ...
