    The election thread - Two middle-late aged white men trying to be blokey and convincing..., same old shit, FFS.

    The big problem with the government in Victoria is that even if you get a local independent in your area who is keen to improve your lot they will get no chance to do so. If you are not part of the Government you get no opportunity to voice your concerns. It's extra shit...

    Confessions from the fuckwits

    Ordered a 30mm thread together PF30 bottom bracket converter - got sent an 24mm outboard bottom bracket converter instead. 30mm option now out of stock when I went to return mine.
