    IN or OUT ?

    I'll give this website a miss for while, as I can tell I'm not too welcome, particularly as I'm not one of the miserable hard-done-by misanthrope types, with a hard-right 19th century take on life.... Enjoy your travels one and all, but if you feel sad or inadequate, take it on the chin, and...

    IN or OUT ?

    That's may be right, but are you saying the only problem that exists is greedy workers, and maybe working people getting rich off not paying taxes, and anyway was all that caused by the EU? I'm sure you remember the 70's before the EU - yes, where everyone was always honest, never greedy and the...

    IN or OUT ?

    Whatever they did in one UK steel plant doesn't justify, or explain, for example, Mrs Green getting a £400m tax-free bung in Monaco off her husband, for the shutting of BHS - those shop workers weren't overpaid much I imagine, even though the shop was obvioulsy unviable and needed to close...

    Seems you are agreeing that the people have elected bad governments since maybe WW1, and that it might have been done better....! Not so far away from what I was saying, really, but I don't see how leaving the EU fixes the problems of bad governments and vested interest, no matter what other...

    Don't kid us - your dog had to declare you at the port, and forced you to self-build your own cabin :-)

    Factually incorrect - Scotland is in the UK by consent, there no way to coerce them to stay in. Check the devolution information.

    IN or OUT ?

    There are a lot angry people, and as retired oldies (some of us!), I see that we are are also in the firing line, seemingly for our unreasonably lavish excesses like owning a car, and a house and a caravan, going without for years and retiring a bit earlier. None of which the "youf 'ave", but...

    It might vary, firm-to-firm, ship-to-ship, route-to-route, even what time of year... A few weeks ago, I was on the Cap Finistere coming from Bilbao - I was sure there was an announcement about kennels or sending pet owners to collect them; didn't pay much attention I'm afraid. I am certain you...

    Having seen this - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-36634786 I'm all for repatriation! But can we make it for uncompetitive white English people on a boat to Syria perhaps? It is a very racially pure place, with some proper strict rules :) Surely cheaper than Alan's Workhouses ? Only kidding. (but...

    IN or OUT ?

    Yes, I'm softer than Andrex, clearly! Britain can be made competitive, if the voters think this is needed, irrespective of in or out, by voting for any party that sees that we need to keep on top of uppity workers, although I'm sure people would not want to go too far on that score... Maybe we...

    IN or OUT ?

    Anyone thinking we can go back to the Victorian era is surely deranged and has no sense of history whatsoever! But I realize it's only poking fun! The UK government has been squeezing people for ages on wages, benefits, strikes etc, and the EU left us entirely to do so - I've no big issue with...

    Welcome & have fun! Bear in mind that many on this site are only travelling in MHs because they are on the run, following a mass break-out in a large mental institution! :) I know this not an option for everyone, but I recommend you keep renting out the house. If you sell, what'll you do with...

    Well it is also true that London generates most of the cash that keeps the rest of the country afloat - this is easy to check if you want. Maybe London should petition to leave the UK on the basis that subsidising us regional scroungers is pointless and expensive :-) Can you remind me of the...

    365 Caravan advice

    We would rather go back having a tent rather than that giant porta-loo.... But you can always use the tractor for international potato smuggling, or blend in with a French farmer's road blockade...

    A Brief Introduction in Time

    But not necessarily legally refillable by end-users, nor generally refillable at the growing network of petrol stations also selling LPG from a pump on the forecourt.... I did say it was cost versus convenience, but you have just added the issue of legality and regulations as if these things...

    "a re-run of the Battle of Hastings"? Now we're talking!! The normans still own most of England and still largely run it - the only 1000-year reich, perhaps?

    A Brief Introduction in Time

    Have you been to lots of non-EU countries? I have, and Visas are a pain and can be expensive, and limit the time you can spend there. I doubt it will come to that though, since it looks as if Brexit is going to be a kind EU-lite membership after all!

    A Brief Introduction in Time

    A tank is good. I have two Gaslow bottles that I'm pleased with - fill up when getting diesel, like having a tank, but I can also take a bottle out and bung it in the bed of my truck to get it filled anywhere, via a filler tube... I'm into easy life with this stuff, but some are more...

    Anyway, the leaders of the Leave campaign have said immigration will probably carry on much as it is now, and that we need the cheap labour, so maybe the people in the boats can do us a favour?
