TBH it is well-known that the NHS needs a 4% annual increase in budget to maintain services.  If taxation is somehow linked to GDP (simplified version, I know) and growth is below that you are going to have a deficit.  Historically this has been paid for by borrowing but we all know that this model is not sustainable.

Thus, unless we increase the amount of tax collected we will probably have tough decisions to make.  E.g. Spend more on health but forgo our state pensions, more on health but tax business more, less on health and get private insurance to pay for the difference (as per the french model), etc, etc.

Putting your head in the sand and doing nothing will just make it worse.

If you have a fine cutter, can you cut across the clip 180 degrees so its in 2 parts ?
That way, the spring tension should work in your favour and it should prise out easier  :y
You will need a new clip mind you  :y :D

Yeah... Not enough space to get through it but itís on the list of possibilities... Heat is next on the list ::)





What  :o
A gallon of unleaded and a match ?   :D

That's the best cure for any french motor car.

So the missus' Astra cluth has been problematic recently with getting in to gear first thing being intermittently difficult.  I noticed the brake/clutch fluid was very old and flushed the entire system.  Some of it was nearly black when it came out.  This resolved the problem but it came back with a vengeance last night.  The missus popped out and the clutch failed entirely, being impossible get in to any gear with the engine running.  I met her and noticed the fluid was at 'low' in the filler reservoir so I started in first and rev-matched it to get home.  Once the reservoir was topped up and the clutch primed a few dozen times the resistance in the pedal came back and it worked again.  I did notice that the pedal get a little spongy after a few minutes if not used, but once a full press and release is performed the resistance returns and all is well again. 

Everything points to a leak but there are no tell-tale marks on the driveway to indicate fluid is escaping.  Therefore it might be the master/operating cylinder.  I have yet to get it up on the ramps to get a decent look underneath but before I do what the thoughts/advice from the learned masses?

All of our essential services are suffering from the same thing. Gifting an expensive item of national infrastructure to private business and watching it decay while they reap in the profits, blame the consumer for their own shortcomings, and court government handouts to fund the meagre level of investment they do make.


You can't say that here! You'll betray yourself as a Guardian watching, BBC reading, lentil wearing, sandal eating leftie. That what you say is both true and a national disgrace won't help your fate.
