Next order for a set of speakers is going to be a challenge. Customer wants a proper old school looking set of big space fillers, proper monitor style. Going to base the design on the Klipsch Forte IV cabinets.

Looking forward to these ones.

You do realise that he lost an argument with a weather man, walked off and then quit? Of course the Daily Hate spins it in a misleading way, as is their wont.
congrats for mentioing the Daily Mail - i thought you would. It was there to back up facts - which is the point i mentioned. Not concerned with any spin that they or anyone else puts on it - see below for the words from OFCOM. Not concerned with the weather man - just a vindication for free speech calling out a serial liar for a multitude of lies and other totaly spurious and unsubstanciated claims that they fail to back up or provide any evidence of

'OFCOM is clear that, consistent with freedom of expression, Mr Morgan was entitled to say he disbelieved the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's allegations and to hold and express strong views that rigorously challenged their account,' they declared, adding that their Broadcasting Code 'allows for individuals to express strongly held and robustly argued views, including those that are potentially harmful or highly offensive, and for broadcasters to include these in their programming.'

It concluded: 'The restriction of such views would, in our view, be an unwarranted and chilling restriction on freedom of expression both of the broadcaster and the audience.'

No issue with that at all. But look at the way it’s framed in the article you posted. It’s spun like he was fired for what he said.

Watched a game of cricket in Mitcham, saff London yesterday. Some very friendly people floating about. One Caribbean lady walked on the pavement alongside the ground, gave a cheery wave and called out to the players "have a good game lads!" whilst one of the wicket-keepers gave me a nice wave and a smile as I was wandering back to my car. And the umpire came and had a chat and thanked me for coming. Nice to see some pleasant people around.

Londoners are obviously not as unfriendly as they are made out to be! Or maybe its a north-south London divide thing?
