Yes suspect so.
On another theme best to leave politics off this forum, it has no place on here. The UK these days unfortunately seems to be full of knowitalls who criticise but could do no better. The current situation is incredibly complex and can't be fixed in few days. Enjoy the racing when it returns.
In deference to this, I've put away my pitchfork, extinguished my flaming torch, and cancelled my Wat Tyler Fan Club membership, despite the fact that Covid 19 and Politics are inextricably entangled. The A) Government and B)Police are under deserved criticism for A) late reaction to the problem B) overzealousness since the Special Powers act was passed. One doesn't need to be a "knowitall" to be aware of the slide to fascism in the UK , why, the Special Powers Act had been intended by the Government to last two years before renewal, and only an amendment brought about the reduction to six months.

I am old enough to remember the numerous occasions when the Police have rolled out their band of thugs, currently called the Territorial Support Group, to brutally suppress even the most peaceful of protest ; the Police then stand by while successive Governments reduce their numbers as a thank you!
As to this not being a place for Politics, this Section is headed "Spectators", and while not necessarily discussing Politics when at race meetings, I have often found myself talking about more than just the weather with fellow Spectators.
Life would be very dull if we had to guard our opinions for fear of the thought Police. I susoect Mr Collins's strictures are more to do with the fact that I have expressed aview different to his.  Consult Voltaire for a little quote about the right to free speech :(

Crikey, it's only been a week. August is gonna be brill!  ;D

Dave, you have no idea of my views or background but I was involved in the miners strike. Think what you will but I'm more interested in bikes and racing.

You made your views clear when attempting to stifle discussion on a thread started by someone other than myself; perhaps you prefer that no discussion on Covid 19 take place,in the absence of racing itself. The pandemic affects us all, and given the opportunity to discuss the handling of it by those who consider themselves our betters, by birth and education, I felt particularly annoyed to be called a knowitall, by someone who, as you say, knows not my background, except to say that my views are not formed by the Murdoch media, or the Barclay Brothers Telegraph, and the Daily Mail.
As it happens, you got what you wanted : apart from the occasional very humourous one liners, there has been little true exchange of views on the Spectator Section's thread entitled "Covid-19". It's all very well to post a sentence on the lack of prospect of racing, but  I had hoped to see some more thoughtful comment on the pandemic and its effect in the UK.

To the Mods:  if you feel I have overstepped the mark, so be it, please remove me from the Forum, my posts have been few, but some people don't like the stark truth.

Hi Andy Rob
Good quality Suzuki but what a price Tomasselli lever are less than that for a pair!
Kerry removable clamps are what I want. I have Amal alloy replicas nice but tend to loose the handlebar rubbers when I replace them.
Tony yours look the part. Will buy a few & give them a go.

Thanks for the replays
Chris
