13th Nov 2018 1:59am 320d won't pass emission test [by DavidB]
My 2003 BMW 320td won't pass the emissions test - I fixed everything else for the MOT, but it was returned with a fail.
It was smoking on acceleration in the past, but is now free of that completely, but I can't get it through this test.

I read new emission levels were introduced this year, meaning around 90% of older diesels won't pass the test.

Broke/unemployment/wahwah/etc means it's this or walking, so any cheap advice would be appreciated. smile

Has anyone seen the Iceland (not the country) Xmas ad which has been banned as its "deemed to breach political advertising rules" ? It may not be politically correct or even Xmassy but it does convey a conservation message which needs to be seen. It brought tears to my eyes & made me think what a sad World we live in. Watch it on MSN if you get the chance then ask yourself Why has this Ad been banned ! 😥

9th Nov 2018 10:10am Rock Ferry boat disaster 1834? [by yoller]
In Gore’s Liverpool Directory for 1853, there is a section of ‘annals’ recording significant events of previous years around Merseyside.
For 1834, it has this entry …

Two boats, crowded with persons returning from a fight near Rock Ferry, upset on the river: between forty and fifty lives lost - Nov 17.

The entry actually reads ‘Bock’ Ferry, but that looks like just a typographical error.

I’ve never heard of this event, which surely must have been recorded in more detail somewhere. Has anyone any further information?

6th Nov 2018 4:25pm Taxi Drivers and Drugs [by diggingdeeper]
I follow Merseyside police reports and had noticed how many taxi drivers have been caught for various offences including drugs and unroadworthy vehicles.

It has now been reported that more than 40 Merseyside Taxi (including private hire) drivers have tested positive for drugs this year alone. This is a horrendous statistic. It also follows the number of other drivers the police are catching.

Yet people are calling for the de-regulation of recreational drugs??? We have enough problems with drugs without increasing the amount of usage.

6th Nov 2018 9:13am Birkenhead riots [by yoller]
In the 19th and 20th centuries, there were several riots in Birkenhead and district. The Garibaldi Riots of 1862 and the Means Test Riots of 1932 are the best-known. This is a timeline I’ve gleaned from local history books, but it’s by no means definitive …

1839 Fierce fighting broke out between English and Irish navvies building a section of the new Birkenhead-Chester railway at Childer Thornton, near Hooton. It flared after a sub-contractor decided to employ only English workers on this part of the line.

Three hundred Irishmen, wielding pickaxe handles and shovels, chased off the English and took over the village, helping themselves to drink in the pubs. Order was restored only after soldiers were drafted in from Chester and Liverpool and 26 of the ringleaders arrested.

1850 The Whitsuntide Wakes, rowdy local festivities held each year on wasteland near the southern foreshore of Tranmere Pool, caused outrage for their ‘disgraceful and riotous scenes’.

Thousands of the ‘idle and dissolute from all over the county’ swarmed into the area – close to the Royal Castle Hotel – where a fairground had been set up with beer sellers, food vendors, freak shows, dancing, sideshows, boxing booths, games of chance, whirlygigs, swingboats and a miniature zoo.

Some 40,000 day trippers arrived by ferry from Liverpool to swell the rough crowd, indulging in an orgy of ‘drunkenness, acts of violence, robbery and shameless immorality’. The township elders called for the event to be suppressed, but it continued for many years.

1850 As Irish immigration soared nationwide in the aftermath of the Great Famine, the Catholic Church controversially re-established its full hierarchy in England.

Birkenhead magistrates were asked to convene a ratepayers’ meeting in the town hall to protest against this ‘encroaching Romanism’. But the gathering was attacked by several thousand Irish navvies who were working on the docks.

Armed with sticks, pokers and iron bars, they forced their way into the town hall, breaking every window. Dozens of police were knocked down, beaten and trampled.

Police reinforcements were called in and the military put on standby, before a priest from St Werburgh’s persuaded the rioters to withdraw. The magistrates emerged from under a table, where they had taken refuge.

1850 Serious rioting erupted on the docks and police were armed with cutlasses to help them quell the violence. Constables on duty on the outskirts of Birkenhead were supplied with signal rockets to summon assistance.

1851 Rioting again broke out on the docks and magistrates were called in to the town hall daily to deal with offenders.

1857 Riots erupted on the docks yet again and the police were overcome as they tried to restore order. Finally, troops were drafted in from Manchester to deal with the trouble.

1859 Thousands of dock navvies armed with spades, shovels and sticks brought terror and mayhem to Birkenhead as violence flared over the issue of Catholic burial grounds.

The town’s Catholics wanted a proposed new cemetery at Flaybrick Hill to be run by a burial board, believing it would ensure they had their own dedicated religious section. But the Birkenhead commissioners, led by John Laird, wanted control of the project – and won a vote on the issue.

The result of the vote was declared at midnight and by 2am, thousands of rioters were rampaging down Church Street, where they attacked the Laird’s shipyard and its workers. Five navvies were arrested and taken by police to the lock-up at the town hall in Hamilton Street. But, reinforced by more armed insurgents, the mob followed, intent on freeing the prisoners.

Fearing that the rioters were likely to demolish the town hall and lives were in danger, a magistrate agreed to release the five navvies after the intervention of a local priest, who promised they would turn up for their trial. Lesser disturbances continued over the next two days and soldiers were stationed in the town hall to resist any further attacks.

1862 The ‘Garibaldi Riots’ brought violent clashes between the police and Irish Catholics in Birkenhead that made worldwide news.

Trouble started when Protestant supporters of anti-Catholic Italian nationalist Guiseppe Garibaldi, whose military forces were threatening the Papal States, held a debate on Italian politics at Holy Trinity Church in Price Street. They put up posters proclaiming ‘Sympathy With Garibaldi’.

Incensed by the posters, which were printed on a bright orange background, 4,000 angry Catholics from the nearby Irish neighbourhood laid siege to the building, hurling stones.

The following week, despite official pleas to desist, the Protestants held another Garibaldi debate at Holy Trinity. More than 170 police, 175 soldiers and 1,000 special constables stood by for trouble.

Violence again erupted and police were caught up in running battles with some 15,000 cudgel-wielding Irish Catholics around Oak Street and Watson Street, where the rioters created a choking smokescreen by setting fire to the chimneys of their houses.

Windows and doors were smashed, gunshots heard, pubs and shops looted, properties burned and 55 police officers injured amid a constant hail of bricks, bottles and stones. Two priests from St Werburgh’s did their best to calm the situation, but Protestants later claimed that the two incited the mob.

At a subsequent trial of 18 rioters at Chester Castle, one man, Henry Lennon, was sentenced to 15 years transportation to the penal colony in Western Australia for allegedly hitting a policeman with an iron bar. Other sentences ranged from nine years to six months in jail.

1883 Religious rioting broke out as the Salvation Army paraded along Conway Street to the Dock Cottages in the North End, where many Irish Catholics lived. As the marchers returned, two thousand people clashed in Brassey Street and Vittoria Street.

1915 After the sinking of the liner Lusitania by a German submarine off Ireland, anti-German riots broke out in Birkenhead. Shops and townsfolk with German-sounding names were attacked by mobs in Watson Street, Oxton Road, Pilgrim Street and Waterford Street. Some terrified traders put notices in their windows, or in the local newspaper, proclaiming their Britishness and telling how their sons were serving in the Army.

1919 Police in Birkenhead joined a national strike for better pay and union recognition, with four sergeants and 98 constables – more than half the force – failing to report for duty. As mob rule broke out in parts of the town, shops were looted and £3,500 worth of property damaged.

More than 190 special constables were called up to try to keep order and the mayor urged all fit menfolk to join them. The Riot Act was read. Finally, 500 troops were drafted in, patrolling the streets armed with rifles and machine guns, and 300 arrests of hooligans and looters were made.

The strike lasted a fortnight and all those policemen who backed it were dismissed from the force, losing their pension entitlements.

1932 The worst street violence since the Garibaldi Riots erupted in Birkenhead. The cause was the paltry amount of unemployment benefit paid by the local Public Assistance Committee (PAC) under the Means Test. A single man got just 12s 3d a week and a single woman 10s 6d.

On August 3, the National Unemployed Workers Movement organised a march of 2,000 jobless from the park entrance to the town hall to urge the mayor to call an emergency council meeting over the issue. He refused. When a second march of 5,000 took place on September 7, the mayor agreed only to put the matter before the Tory-controlled council.

There was a third march on September 13, but barricades were erected around the town hall and protesters were faced with a huge and threatening police presence. The council agreed to call for the abolition of the Means Test, but refused to tell the PAC to increase benefits.

Next day, a crowd of 18,000 gathered at the park entrance and marched to Argyle Street, gathering outside the PAC offices. But the PAC said only that it would discuss the benefits issue at its full meeting the following Monday.

It was the final straw for many of the jobless. As they marched back towards the park entrance, 2,000 peeled off and lay siege to the home in Bryanston Road, Prenton, of a Tory councillor who had earlier accused them of abusing the benefits system. But vanloads of police arrived and launched an unprovoked attack on the crowd with batons, badly injuring several.

As darkness fell, dozens of enraged demonstrators went on the rampage down Grange Road, smashing windows and looting shops. Then premises in Price Street were attacked, with grocery stores the main target of the hungry rioters.

On Saturday and Sunday, further serious violence erupted, with pitched battles between the police and unemployed in Back St Anne Street, Price Street, Beckwith Street and Conway Street. The rioters smashed street lights, removed manhole covers and laid trip-wires in an attempt to thwart pursuing constables.

Almost 1,000 police reinforcements were drafted into Birkenhead from Liverpool and Birmingham and troops put on standby in Chester. But a ferry boat bringing constables from Liverpool was forced to turn back as rioters on the Woodside landing stage bombarded it with stones.

On Monday, despite their leaders being arrested, the unemployed again gathered in force outside the PAC offices. By early evening, more than 20,000 people were crammed into the surrounding streets. Cammell Laird workers downed tools to join the jobless in solidarity. Nobody in Birkenhead could remember so many people gathered in one place before.

A few hours later, the PAC agreed to raise the benefit rate for men to 15s 3d a week, and for single women to 13s 6d.

It was a landmark victory for the unemployed. But five of the riot leaders were later jailed for between six and 20 months. And the council refused to hold an inquiry into police brutality against demonstrators. Instead, several constables were awarded medals.

But stars a constant vigil keep
For them that lie beneath the deep
Tis true you cannot kneel in prayer
On a certain spot and think "he's there"

30th Oct 2018 6:00pm Talktalk discounts/offers [by diggingdeeper]
Talktalk have offers on for new customers but the loyalty team will match those offers to existing customers if they are still in contract or not. In fact I got a better offer because it is only an 18 month contract not 24 months that is on the offer.

Broadband (18mbs? max) including line rental £20 a month

Fibre broadband (40mbs max) including line rental £23.50 a month

Fibre broadband with speed boost (80mbs max) including line rental £26 a month.

Additionally there is an offer on anytime calls to UK landlines and mobiles of £7.50/month if taken at the same time (normally £10/month)

This is a good time to upgrade to fibre for those that have slow non-fibre broadband because of their distance from the telephone exchange.

28th Oct 2018 2:01pm Mersey ferries, 1840s [by yoller]
These two pictures are from Smith's Strangers Guide to Liverpool, 1843.

The first one (picture on the left) is of the old Birkenhead Ferry, which was on the edge of Tranmere Pool behind St Mary's Church and the Birkenhead Hotel. The hotel and ferry were opened in 1820 and the church in 1821.

But I'm not sure what the ferry is in the second picture. I think it may be Tranmere Ferry, which was opposite Birkenhead Ferry on the south side of Tranmere Pool. Can anyone help?

27th Oct 2018 10:23pm Fascist Counter-Demo, Liverpool [by RUDEBOX]

*Information Purpose Only smile
Merseyside Together Against Racism and Fascism is calling on all opponents of the far right to gather for a counter-demonstration against neonazis planning to march in Liverpool.

The demonstration, coordinated by Labour left and antifascist stalwart Alan Gibbons, who spoke on the subject at a The World Transformed event alongside Labour’s conference in Liverpool last month, will begin at the famous St George’s Hall opposite Lime Street station – the scene of some of the most inspiring pro-Corbyn gatherings.

A fascist group called the North West Frontline Patriots says it is going to march in our city. Join us and say no to them. These groups are anti-working class. On a demo in July, fascists attacked officials from the transport union, the RMT. These bullies surrounded a bus driven by a Muslim woman, a member of Unite.

They want to blame scapegoats. We must reject this. The problems people face in jobs, housing and services are down to Tory cuts and the 2008 bank crash. Liverpool City Council will have lost 64% of its funding between 2010 and 2020. Austerity is to blame, not migrants. The Tories screw up lives, not Muslims.

We have a strong and proud tradition of standing up to these sorts. They recently had to hide in Lime Street station left luggage office. Months later, they were laughed out of town to the Benny Hill theme.

Let’s do it again.

If you can be there, do.

A good friend has offered me his car for free to sell and for me to keep the money (he is giving up driving due to age and health and having just had his first minor bump since 1959) The car is driveable but could do with a new wing where he bumped it. MOT due around December but it has passed every year due to low annual mileage. Not sure of cost of new wing being put on (ebay to buy around £100) Any of our motoring "experts" think it might be worth me repairing and selling on

10th Oct 2018 3:52pm Trams planned for our Docks [by Norton]
From tonight's Liverpool Echo
Trams are planned for Merseyside

The area in question is Wirral Waters and it is planned (by Peel) to use some of the heritage tramway and go over the Four Bridges.
Several plans are said to have been submitted to the Council already.
To be discussed by full Council on Monday October 15th.

"The notice is set to be discussed by full council on October 15, and asks the authority to consider recent events including December's Paris Summit on climate change and the Zero Emission Vehicle Summit in Birmingham that took place last month. At that conference, world leaders signed a declaration setting out the aim of "building a smart infrastructure network, planning for the cities of the future today, embedding zero emission infrastructure into the fabric of our urban and rural communities, and enabling provision where consumers need it".

Somehow, it doesn't seem so smart to me. What I think might have been smart would have been to look at the bigger picture, and timescale, given recent investment on the new bridge and cycle lanes.

27th Sep 2018 10:31am Tradesmen? [by BandyCoot]
Where have all the tradesmen gone? Getting fed up with the standard of services. First one, roof probs and deffo had to be repaired. Got a roofer in, did the job (I hope) and they charged me for scaffolding, quite expensive, which they didn't even put up. The roof held up to now but that's still robbery, that's Wallasey out the picture next time. Another roofer this week to pre-empt any probs on a flat roof, Leaky gutter had to be redone because it was sealed when it was well forecasted to rain and it did. Quite, quite pricey. Bust my down spout and "fixed" with bodge tape and had to get him back in. Knocked down two flower holder brackets and now have to wait and see if the replacement flat roof holds out when the weather comes a knocking. B&Q "kitchen consultant", a bag of nails, B&Q kitchen staff put down wrong stuff, too much stuff, which caused problems during refit. Had to get snags sorted out from the actual build, my fault apparently for not checking when he finished, I was out at the time. Last 411 form NB to Bhead ran early on Monday and had to get a taxi back home. Last bus that's early may as well not be on. Depot chap said that there is not a time check point until Seacombe Ferry, well that's handy seeing as there's no ferries there anymore. I'm losing the plot a bit and so is my bank account. It's a hard loif.
