I agree about the West Wing but similarly season 5 of the Wire is a little too proposterorus for me.

The wife turned round to me on Sunday, out of the blue, and said she wanted to start watching the Wire. I've been trying to persuade her for years with no success all I'm delighted. It's a good few years since I watched it through. We'll finish S1 tonight!

The thing I always remember about watching season 1 was that the first time I watched I found it really difficult to understand the dialogue and I had to watch the first 4 or 5 episodes twice. I could then understand it perfectly. A couple of years ago I finally convinced my wife to watch it and she had the exact same problem whereas I was fine despite having not watched an episode in years. I always find that strange because Iíd have no problem with the dialogue if I went to watch again tomorrow

 To me itís the second best tv series ever made and in the words of Kevin Keegan thatís the most praise you can give anything.

Just watching season three of last chance u and thereís a framed picture of David Trimble hanging on the wall in one of the classrooms.

What episode!? Missed that

Second episode the English teacher is teaching a class but not in her normal room.

Featured heavily again in episode 7

Another camera angle in episode 8 shows John Hume on the opposite wall.

Another thing that was pointed out to me today is that a lot of land of these so called private land Car parks arenít actually on private land but are instead public places. The one today involving Rushmere shopping centre so I really canít see how these charges could be enforceable here.

In a bizzare coincidence the debt recovery people rang me today about the case described above having not been in contact in more than 6 months. I missed the call and rang them back and they refused to speak to me until I provided personal information to them. I refused and hung up and have reported them to the police as a potential phone scam.

Jesus Christ. Had been reading this thread thinking that will never happen to me. Anyways, wife parked somewhere in Bangor wtf? Got one of these through the post today. Smart parking. What's the story? Pay it or ignore it.

I got one a few months back, Mrs parked in a carpark in Banbridge that was 3 hours only, have had 5 letters so far, latest threatening debt recovery agencies and court, going to keep ignoring them.

Given they have no contract with you they would do well to take you to court. Assuming you are registered keeper. They will keep coming for a while but imagine they will give up.

Scenario is the wife paid for parking but overstayed her welcome. Does this make a difference given she paid initially?

This is what I see to be the biggest problem the car park would have in this jurisdiction. In England and Wales the Car owner is liable for civil wrongs committed by drivers. There is a statutory basis for that. The statute doesnít apply here, so the car company would have to prove you were driving. I donít know how they would do that. Particularly as you werenít.
