There should be 2, 1 at Heathrow and another at Gatwick.  By the time this 3rd runway is built we will be out of capacity again because we are already behind the curve.

Plus you have to factor in resilience for incidents like when the NATS phone system went down and it closed Heathrow.  If all your eggs are in one basket.......

You could always cycle to the shops.  Cargo trailers to carry your shopping are not expensive at all ::)

Absolute 80,s radio ! Dear oh dear.  ::) :D
I refer the (dis)honourable gentleman to the time, when Radio 2 has that ego driven, annoying, trailer trash presenter on.  Mr Evans, Mr Bruce, Mr Wright, Mr Mayo/Ms Whiley I can handle. But not Old woman Mrs Whine...

My Merc only has Radio 4 8)

Real gents only listen to Radio 4 in the car.

Hang on this doesn't make sense.  He can't be braking while drawing the number 11 everywhere...

As Zirk said, you need to plug in the phone and find whatever your computer has installed at as in the COntrol Panel.  Then uninstall that driver, unplug the phone and install the correct drivers.  Then and only then plug it in again.

It turns out that the fluid or grease from the flywheel was leaking on to the starter motor so that needs replacing too.  It can be tough to start sometimes so that fits the overall picture. 

At least the flipping mechanical roof still works (rare) ;D

More horse shit than the stables at Aintree

we'll see when I get back and inspect the old parts :y

Apparently to drop the GB you also have to drop the subframe.

Likewise with the Astra G before it. It's not such a difficult job ..... remember to slacken off the bottom of the steering column  :y

Unfortunately I don't have time to do this myself.  So it's a garage job :(

Makes the traditional two bolts and a hydraulic connection 25 external slave look like a good idea doesn't it? You know, the sort you could change while the kettle boiled?

Yup as soon as I read that it had a concentric slave I uttered something which would be filtered out by the forum's software  :-[

Apparently being made a French citizen for his troubles :y

And offered a job as a pompier.  :)
Fire fighter I think he passed his agility test

In France that is no mean feat.  I once stayed with a family whose dad was a fireman.  On a regular basis they had to demonstrate that they could pull themselves up and on to a small platform which was about 2m off the ground and without touching the wall.  When you consider that many french firemen continue in operational roles well in to their 50's you have to say 'chapeau, Monsieur!'

Passenger well is dry.  More research indicates that it is most likely the slave probably letting air in and occasionally dumping a load of fluid (ie not a constant leak.  This can be caused by the DMF bearing having gone causing damage to the slave bearing seal.  At least that is what a local garage has said.  Best case scenario about 400quid for the slave and clutch, or double if the DMF needs to be replaced.

Ouch.

But wouldn't that be the case for any country that chose to change the law based on a referendum or election?
