  1. We used to call them Drop Hide Lose I waited days for a very expensive printed circuit board to arrive on next day delivery from Germany. Then they rang to say they had found it but it had been run over by one of their trucks. Did we still want it Dave

    First post

    Welcome Pete & Pfen. While I do visit the old establishment it is only so they don't get the remainder of my subscription for no return. I'm afraid I find Alec's Inn is like a pub with no beer, nowhere to sit & a grumpy landlord who does't encourage customers. I wish John Morrison & co good luck with their efforts but ear it will be too little too late. Dave
  3. Paul I totally agree apart from your point about the current moderation team. As far as I can see they are doing a grand job as did the previous team of Roger and the others that were dismissed without reason and left the forum largely unmoderated. The previous board got us into this mess by not only recomending the new forum rules but stating that they were urgently required. For the current board (which is largely the same at the top) to claim they do not agree with the new rules is disengenuous. I have recently had some corespondance with a board member who said that the forum only critisised board decicions & never gave praise when it was due. My reply was that unless they publicised what they actually did then the membership only ever noticed when things went wrong & that they should use the forum as a communication tool. As a UK based member who does not participate at local group level I am sure that there are many like me who feel exactly the same as you do about TRR membership. Unless there are radical changes then I will not renew my membership when it expires. Dave .
  4. Paul I wasn't intending to put a bait in the water. Perhaps just expressing myself badly. There are many reasons that people voted to leave & migration although often given as the main reason by the press is just one of many. Dave
  5. Personally I don't Alan but I am sure many do. It seems to be a protest against the governments failure to have any sort of visible policy on controlling numbers coming in from all across the globe. Dave
  6. And that, I think, is the reason why so many people are reported to be anti immigration. It is not necessarily immigration they are against it is uncontrolled immigration. Dave
  7. Welcome Roger. I hope you are going to use the hat picture so we recognise you. Thanks for your efforts at the AGM & really sorry you were not elected. Dave M
  8. Thanks. I hope you haven't had too many. Dave M
  9. I could not agree more Duncan As a member who does not attend group meetings the forum is my only means of communication with other TRR members. In my opinion there is a small but very vocal group that are anti forum & they have the ear of at least some of the board. They have said that all the forum does is critisise but in reality TRA & the IWE get praised & most critisism is of lack of communication from the BoD. The only communications I get is TRA which mostly tells me what has happened (sometimes as in Darrens case a very one sided view) & the annual renewal reminder. When did TRA ever include any meaningful content on what the BoD were planning for the future of the TRR or try to canvas members views. In my view the forum is a wonderful advert for the TRR. I have witnessed the efforts o forumites to get a seiously ill Badfrog from France to the IWE & back, the support given to Alec Pringle during his long illness & numerous othe acts of kindness carried out through the old AtB. All a wonderful advert for the TRR noe lost I have reluctantly agreed to the new forum rules as I only renewed my membership on 1st Nov in order to vote but I will be writing to the chairman to express my views.

  10. I'll come & have a virtual pint or 3 if someone can give me a virtual lift home. Dave
  11. While the door of Alec's Inn might be open the shutters are still firmly down at the bar. The new rules forbid discussion of so many subjects it's difficult to know exactly what will be allowed. Our new Chairman has already broken the new rules. Surely the implementation of these rules could have been delayed while decisions were taken on what tweaking they need. We are back in the situation where the BoD make it up as they go along & look where that has got us in the recent past. Dave
  12. The rules should apply to all Tim Dave
  13. There's a lot of us like that Darren. The problem is the Bod don't care either unfortunatly. I would have liked to go to the AGM just to see how they act but I just had an eye op so can't go. Dave
  14. As dangerous bunch of radicals as I've ever seen Darren. I hope they don't get hunted down by the TR security services. Dave
  15. I have read the interim report several times now & each time I read it the more annoyed I get. It would appear that since no proper procedures were in place for a hearing & they didn’t actually follow what few procedures that did exist then that’s ok as long as they put some in place for next time Sorry not good enough. An unspecified director acted in an unspecified inappropriate manner but that’s ok because he apologised. Apologised for what & to who? Sorry but this isn’t good enough. We may be voting for this person at the AGM Then we have the new accusation that Darren misused proxy voting. Proxy voting has never been applicable at group elections & we are told never happened at VoWH. How can you misuse something that never happened? Why were no members of the group interviewed enen though they volunteered to appear beore the IRP I suggest the IRP has been carefully mislead. Dave
