I haven't seen the thread either Dave. I don't bother with the club forum unless somebody specifically asks me to take a look at something.
As to your speedwatch scheme, I admire anybody who does voluntary work in the community. Getting off one's arse and doing something rather than sitting comfortably and complaining, or even worse denigrating the efforts of others, shows a commitment to be applauded
As for being called names... being a Magistrate is a voluntary task for the local community and you'd be amazed at some of the names I get called
Although it has to be said that I do have a range of sanctions at my disposal if required
Speeding? Well, I think my attitude is reasonably well documented elsewhere
