Looking for English asylum seekers trying to get into Wales without paying the 5 bridge toll?

or just tootling around, enjoying themselves at taxpayers expense? I mean who isnt patrolling by RIB now , with the fire brigade, dibble, the coastguard, and all the usual rescue services from the RNLI to SARA to the P'head lifeboat. Hit a rock and they'll be fighting over you.

Yes, and it's time we got Offas Dyke properly patrolled...I'm sure they're getting in that way as well!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

And there's no toll to get out - prevents a queue I spose.

Did you know that whenever someone leaves Wales to go to England, the average IQ of each country becomes higher?

But did you know that the bank account of an English man slightly decreases on visiting Wales by road.... the intelligent use a boat (that probably costs more)
How much is a night in Portishead? /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

A night in Portishead costs nothing at my mum's, and I actually come away with a slight profit if I am at work!

Whoooo, you are all so nasty buggers to us welsh, we are the brainy ones for charging you, and you for paying - well.... - lol, I seen that too nice looking craft but was moving very slow, came to the pilots and just moved away again?

I take you work the pilots then Graham?

It could be a jet drive job judging by the way it spun round on its own axis. Three of them on board so they may have been training or something.Didnt hang round for long as you say.

Yes think your are right, the wash gave it away.

I recognise you now Graham, me I am the "sometimes" crew for Peter.

Merry Christmas.....hope you are not working too much?
