  4. I think you will all be swimming in money, big boobs and MV Agustas in a couple of years, once all that money from the US, India, Australia thing starts flowing through the UK. This is nothing but a hiccup in turning the empire back on.

  11. Well, if I can provide an external view: It is known that England is pretty congested, but at the same time it is also known that wages are a lot higher than in "poorer" countries, your cars are newer, you are perceived as a culture of consumerism and that entices people who come from places where they simply have no money after going through monthly basic living expenses to try and make it there. I remember minimum wage being less than 500€/month in Portugal, today it's 665€/month. If you work a full job to come home and pay groceries and bills and be skint in two weeks, suddenly a congested island seems pretty good as people are picturing being in traffic sitting inside a brand new BMW. Reality for most of those immigrants might not be what they expect, but that's what they're going after. I know several people who went to the UK to work a few years ago, @Sofia being one of them with a skillset, while others go hoping for whatever comes their way. It is not easy adapting from south Europe to the UK or any other "northern" country but it does turn out great for lots of people compared to what they had back home. This is my perspective, and I'm doing good in a European country. Factor in coming from an Eastern European ethnic cleansing ex-war ruin, or borderline civil war African country, and that congested plague central is bliss once you have a full stomach everyday while being able to send a little money home at the end of the month.

  12. The UK is a superpower again, your fuel shortages have made it to portuguese news broadcasting! According to my tv you're solving this by issuing visas to foreign truck drivers. Smart, you understood what caused the issue and are now doing the opposite to fix it, we should all have such humble governments. Maybe next will be a list of unwanted or difficult jobs being sent to other countries: please send 300 bricklayers, 140 garbage men, 500 cheap hospice nurses, 10000 fruit pickers, 3 cheap certified nuclear scientists, etc, I could see that working...

  17. I rode from my home a little north of Lisbon, center Portugal, to near Porto today. Went from 27º and warm to 20º and damp, from blue sky with a few white clouds to grey and overcast, even rain for a while on the motorway, bloody depressing! Felt like I managed to ride to the UK or the Netherlands in 2,5 hours

  18. Today marked the end of an era. In 1997 I owned a Triumph Speed Triple. such a fantastic bike at the time. And sometime in March of that year it went back to the dealership for a service. I lived in Manchester at the time and the dealership was in Rochdale. So, I needed a loan bike for the day and much to my horror the dealership gave me a BMW, This was a big deal. "IM NOT OLD ENOUGH" to ride one of them!! I was 35. Well, I had that bike for a day and when it came time to collect the Trumpet, I was already smitten and tentatively asked about trade-in. And within minutes the deal was done, My less than a year old speed triple traded in for a bizarre, but truly wonderful motorbike. with just a short break when I bought my house in 2000, I have owned one of these as my main bike ever since. Ive had 2, the 97 and then another bought in the early 2000s. A different time, people at 'meets' would gather round it pointing and laughing. I would often find people on their hands and knees looking at the suspension, trying to work it out!! And then, more than once gape in slack jawed wonder when I would turn up and get on it. (I was far too young!!) Today, after 24 years of owing one of these bikes, I finally let it go. And watched it disappear down the road. It was a very strange feeling. I bought my first one when there was no such thing as an "adventure bike" even "dual purpose or dual sport" wasn't a thing. It was a "monster trail bike" if it had any kind of description at all. Its carried me all over Europe, other bikes have come and gone.. a lot of other bikes. But I always kept the Beemer.. and every time another bike was bought it was sold, because the Beemer was simply the better bike and suited my needs more than any other bike could. But, that's changed with the Africa Twin. since buying this bike the BMW hasn't been touched and has sat on the patio for almost 3 years. untouched. And today it's gone.... And, in the end. I couldn't bear to sell it. I have given it to a mate of mine on the understanding that if he doesn't keep it himself. (He will) that he throws some money in my direction when its sold. And that's it. My 2000 R1100GS, originally black. It was resprayed years ago. a creamy white that was used on two-tone Rollers back in the 70s. (just to be different) I even sorted out its original seat. (he likes red seats, apparently). and... he couldn't cope with my own seat which was built for my rather unlikely inside leg.

  25. Two or three years ago there was a strike here too, for HGV drivers of dangerous loads, fuel being the most significant. I did have enough fuel on the car to go home and there I had the GS fully fueled, and went on a trip enjoying my 600km autonomy on back roads It did get ugly, once planes started getting grounded for having no fuel and the army started doing the minimum service transport some people got really agitated, but Portugal being Portugal all was well after a couple of days

  40. I think one reality that evades people living in countries that are desirable by foreign workers, is that they think those workers want to move there forever, in fact most people just plan on working hard and saving hard for a few years, and then make it back home with some cash in their pocket to allow them to start a business or whatever. A study was made in the US about immigrants from Mexico and more southern countries, that you would get less of a population of illegals if you opened the borders and allowed people to come in and out as they needed and as the work market demanded them, this would allow them to return home for periods instead of fearing to be locked out. Very few Portuguese, Greeks, Italians, Spaniards, Moroccans, etc, really want to go to the UK, Germany, Netherlands, to make a life and stay there forever, most would miss their reality too much, their plan is usually to come back. The value those temporary workers provide to a country's economy is huge. Of course nobody wants to go back to an unsafe war zone but that's another issue.
