Re: Clarity of Purpose

Other road users are overly engaged with, rather than effectively dispatched. This part feels a little awkward as effective dispatch sometimes isn't far away from a brusque attitude towards other road users. On the other hand I like a certain directness in the manner by which a driver negotiates fi...

Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

"One was his lack of use of what is effectively the Hendon Shuffle - always stopping on the rear brake then swapping feet. There are of course many instances when this is impossible or inadvisable, and to cite this as a fail seems ridiculous. Sometimes descriptions leave out important detail ....
