It's a couple of years since Difflock Dennis disappeared...

...but in that time a certain D Trump appears to have become rather prominent on the other side of the Atlantic.

Are they, by any chance, related?

Was it when he was in Nigeria, and needed some help over getting some money out of the country?

Nah, Dennis was a good bloke, well OK - a bit deranged maybe, but misunderstood by deranged Difflockers and pretty annoying at times.

OK, so you pays your money and you takes your choice. But on here if the clique don't like you !!!!

Nothing like some totally free and open opinion and discussion - well not always on here.

Wot he knows about Land Rovers and elderly British vehicles is a sad loss to this forum. Yeah, OK so he annoyed some people on here including me but he gave more than he took or knocked - and if you don't like a bit of banter and some knocking/bullsh*t and cobblers (and there is plenty of it on here still) then it's time to take some tolerance lessons - or just ignore it. And at the end of the day Dennis has done very well for himself.

jojo we have had this discussion before.

it wasnt his knowledge, it wasnt his success, it wasnt his humour, it wasnt his banter.

it was his "you are **** because you live in britain and britain is ****" attitude

otherwise known as blind patriotism.
and the fact that nearly every post contained a variation of that statement.

oh, did you lend him the money BTW?

because one min you are defending him, and another you are saying he was carrying out a scam....

consistency. its a wonderful thing.

Indeed it is, but sadly not always applied on here. Not so much defending him, more pointing out an inconsistency - - -

Well yes, I agree with that; or perhaps I should say there needn't be. There are lots of different views and misunderstandings, and perhaps Dennis was one of them.

Can I put the record straight: Yep, Dennis was an annoying a*se in the way he said a lot of things. He annoyed me too, especially in those things just about all of us on here perceive as being unpatriotic. But in many ways, but by no means always, he was right, we do have in the UK a culture of having a good idea and then making things difficult if not impossible, and despite that (and EU regulations) we have had many great successes. Where in the "land of opportunity" it is the complete opposite as the culture is to grasp the opportunity.

He was not always right and like me he had not attended that course on tact and diplomacy - so, like me was always putting his foot in it. At the end of the day it is horses for courses and the USA course suited his way and he has been very successful and that success is due to his own ideas and hard work. Of course it can happen here as well and it does - it's just different there and it suits him. Sadly he can't understand why we want to go our way, and equally sadly some of us can't understand why he wants to go his way. And perhaps there is a lacking of tolerance on both sides. But that's not unique to Dennis as there are many threads on here where there are differences that appear to be treated differently.

I'm with GED on this one; Dennis is a cock on the assumption he is still alive and well (I hope).

For all his knowledge and expertise his constant knocking of anything British overrode it all.

I remember Dennis well, especially for his Uk bashing.
Now Richard Plop, what a character he was. All ok until he promised things to a couple who were to be married and couldnt even provide a photo of said items/places.
One of the best and nicest people who the old guard here at Differs miss will be Sloss. What a great bloke who would always help others out and who really knew his stuff. I saw him at Drumclog a few years ago, what a legend he is.

Aye to Sloss. If anyone sees him - big wave from Differland.

Didn't know that last bit about Herr Plop.
