    European Residents. New boy in school.

    Good day,folks.I was pointed towards this forum a few months ago.i like to read and understand different points of view from different countries'residents.Here in the UK we are generally treated like mushrooms by our media particularly the remarkably biased BBC.I am English but spend half the year in Spain.Open discussion of "delicate "subjects rarely takes place.e.g.Having 3 daughters of 40+ years old I could have told you 30 years ago about pakistani muslims but even now the subject is taboo.I like the way this forum doesn't clamp down on what is free speech.
    I am 72 and retired from driving heavy trucks.Favourite music is rock n roll and hard and heavy rock.AC/DC,Metallica.Favourite movie characters are the minions which sums up my sense of humour.

    For all that bullshit , you could have just told us you were wanting a second chance.

    You sound like a good chap. Will love having you here to tell us the Euro side of things. We have had a few UK leftists to debate in the past not sure they could hang with our debating. Also will enjoy tales of driving for a living as there are quite a few us professionals here too. What a mess it looks like in for trucks in Calais France.

    Greetings from a fellow Brit @Big Wheeler, living in Rugby. Like the league of bloody nations in the UK, isn’t it!

    Recently returned from abroad and also looking for trucking work (Class 1), in our gig economy! Recently offered 10.25ph tramping to Scotland, max hours, no o/t rate and no mention of nights out allowance … I’m still in shock!

    As long as you’re polite you can let it all out here and as the site is American you won’t get a knock on your door from the authorities. We even have a Brit and rants thread. Welcome.
