    Hard to say Upt'. I mean we apparently have an orange reality TV celebrity in charge of America, a scruffy Etonian in charge of the UK, flat earthers, and no-one is paying me to write my most excellent prose. Am I in a stupor or have things gotten really weird?

    Yes you500彩票网安全下载 probably are in a tea induced stupor. Not a bad place to be.
    But yes, things are really weird, it's progress apparently.
    As someone once said, "there's are one constant, change".
    Just think Ed, if you500彩票网安全下载 were paid to write you500彩票网安全下载 couldn't entertain us urchins for free. Now that would be a loss to humanity, have you500彩票网安全下载 thought of running for President, the job's up for grabs.

    Obviously they didn't say it that way, but you500彩票网安全下载 know what I mean.
    I think I've got Pocket Pete's predictive text on. That can't end well.

    You're rambling Upt', what brand of tea are you500彩票网安全下载 on? I'd suggest not letting it stew for quite so long.

    I couldn't run for office I'm afraid. Far too many indiscretions in my past, there'd be blackmail and news stories that would overshadow my brilliance. Otherwise yes I'm obviously the right man for the job. Insensitive, uncaring, self-centred, egotistical, money grabbing and generally clueless.

    Just switched to Yorkshire, you500彩票网安全下载 could be on to something. I've also had an urge, no not that sort of urge; an urge to buy a flat cap and a Whippet.

    Ren - The Ed^1 said :-
    Thas'll look reet gradely withi flat cap 'nt 'ound. Remember, despite my residence being in Greater Manchester (Bolton is NOT in Lancashire despite their protestations) I was born in Halifax which makes me a tyke. Apparently this explains my prudent ways and sombre persona.

    Bill said :-
    I suppose Bolton protests because it was in Lancashire as was Liverpool in my you500彩票网安全下载f.
    Then some government department decided to create Greater Manchester and Merseyside.
    That's progress for you500彩票网安全下载

    Ren - The Ed^1 said :-
    Precisely Bill. The borders changed and new counties were created. I'll happily grant that Bolton was once part of a much larger Lancashire, but it is no longer. The same argument happens with Bury and Wigan around here too. Do you500彩票网安全下载 hail from the land of the scouse?

    I still haven't worked out how Warrington managed to get itself into Cheshire though.

    Bill said :-
    Yes Ren but left a very long time ago, I knew someone from Southport who was not impressed with it being made part of Sefton but I don't think the feelings of residents are considered in the decisions when redrawing regional maps. It can be strange my mothers house was in Merseyside and the houses on the opposite side of the street where in Greater Manchester but I suppose the border has to be somewhere.
    Rutland succeeded in having their county restored after a long campaign.

    Look what Benelli are up to. The Chinese government said we want 140 horses, 90 pounds of torquey stuff, shaft drive, electronic suspension. They've only gone and blummin dunnit.
    I bet it isn't lightweight.

    It looks pretty lightweight Upt'
    I think it should be at least a 6 cylinder flat 6 of about 2000cc or preferably a 2500cc V8.
    29/1/2020 9:14:42 PM UTC
    Upt'North said :-
    I'd bet on an updated Benelli Trei set up.
    I think they were about 1100 cc.
    I'd also bet on 300 Kg plus.
    Now it just needs to be less than 10k,with 5 years Pan European warranty, 5 years 0% finance and 5 years of haring around Europe.
    We'll see, I do hope it's good though and it'll be good to see someone take it to BMW.
    Perhaps Ren will buy us all one, bless him.

    R.I.P. NORTON (?), now that's a blummin shame if it's accurate.

    Ren - The Ed^1 said :-
    IF if that HUGE Benelli returns 80mpg then I'd consider buying myself one second hand. I could of course easily afford buying you500彩票网安全下载 all one but I didn't get this wealthy by spending money. Norton do appear to have got into trouble for owing 300,000 to the tax man.

    I believe that a lot of prospective scrambler owners placed deposits over a year ago, and have been concerned about Norton for sometime. Will they see any return of their deposits?

    I have posted this elsewhere so apologies.

    It's sad that all the people who set out to "rescue" the proud name of Norton seem to be chancers that I wouldn't buy a cup of tea from. LeRoux, Garner etc - all sharks looking for a quick buck in my experience. And look who the bulk of the money s owed to - HRMC - in other words us. I bet he's paid off the loans before them.

    Ian, you500彩票网安全下载 are so right. But you500彩票网安全下载 knew that anyhows.
    When the full details are known I'm sure there will be evidence that grants from government, government agencies, local development funds have all not been repaid. That'll be multi millions.
    Then there will be massive pension shortfalls. More multi millions to be found.
    Redundancy payments to be made, together with unpaid holiday entitlement. Even more millions.
    Will it be Garner's fault, not in his eyes, it'll probably be down to Brexit!?!
    But yes, we'll be the one's picking up the bill for Garner's erectile dis-function fix.
    I'd love to know how much it has cost to build the units that left the factory, I'm guessing an awful lot in a crazy mixed up pyramid scheme.
    The best part is it'll be sold for lb1.00 to the next Garner, ker'ching.
    These are my views and not those of the official Batties.
    Just saying.

    ROD said :-
    I guess that the building, plant and machinery is rented.
    So the only salable asset will be the name.
    I can not see Norton being sold as a going concern.

    1/2/2020 6:45:25 PM UTC
    Ren - The Ed^1 said :-
    Thanks for the cunning plan Ian and Upt'. You can call me Mr Norton from now on, well, until I've used up the grants and loans, goodwill of the banks and the foreign investment.
