Or we just leave on the 29th March, save a big chunk of the 39 Billion and find that lots of mini deals happen very quickly so things still work.  :)

No , Wednesday she will have acabinet meeting then the legal side will start to dribble out. Westminster will vote it down as lets face it no plan will be any good.

Then what ? A General Election?  Sir Starmer will put forward his plan which will have so many red lines that you wont be able to read any of it.

Farage will pop up like one of those fairground gophers you hit with a hammer.

Pound will slide. Business will start to wobble with the added years of uncertainty.

Vince Cable will call for a referendum with ten possible boxes.

David Cameron decides not to make a politics comeback

Article 50 will be extended by both sides to allow more jollies sorry talks.

Years will go by.  Everyone will be fed up of even more media coverage

Check the MOT history :y
has it failed on emissions in the past ?
how is the engine now you changed the oil ? any noisy valve lifters ? knocks etc ?  smoke when the engine is up to temperature ? is this the 120k miles one ?

5w30 fully synthetic is thin and will flush sludge from all the engine IF it is there (if engine has done short journeys,not had regular oil changes,had thick oil in the past)

I've had this in the past ,a 1.6 with only 80k that a garage put flushing oil in to reduce emissions then fully synthetic 5w30 (it did not work, just made it worse ) all the sludge just stuck in the oil control rings ,jamming them in the pistons  >:(
 it smoked like a steam train when warm, I got the car,stripped it ,new rings ,cleaned sump etc and found the emissions fail was down to a clogged injector  ::)

your car may have had thick oil in or not been changed enough(very likely from what you say) ,
hopefully a couple of oil and filter changes will resolve it .
No mention of emission problems in service records or old MOTs, or I would not have bought it. In the MOT fail in October emissions were not mentioned. I was therefore surprised this morning when the tester failed to get it through the emissions test. Three attempts with sustained high revs failed, got the engine and the oil hot, then it rattled. With hindsight, the oil remaining black after oil change warranted more investigation.

I do not understand why if failed emissions, after passing them a month ago, unless my oil change caused it.

Probably not, but she may do 12 iterations down the line, deadline looming when she's come up a completely different, yet shockingly similar looking plan.

Cancel all my previous optimism, it looks like Mother Theresa has got zero chance of convincing anyone to back this plan. We hadn't talked about it for a while and I'm sorry I resurrected it now.

Lets turn this on it's head. If you were French or German, would you want us as members of your club? I certainly wouldn't. A snotty little country, with a superiority complex, that can't treat its sick or look after its old people. One who's education system is in meltdown and who's social care is beyond a joke.
Yeah, we're a right catch, aren't we?

You're right Uncle STEMO there are those in the EU who will be glad to see the back of us. Not because we are a snotty little country with a superiority complex, but because we have been a thorn in the side of the EU federalists for the last 40 years and where we have wielded our veto to put the brakes on further integration, the Scandinavians, the Dutch and more recently some of the Eastern European countries have generally followed.  :y

Notice how in the last few days the subject of the EU Army has cropped up again from Macron over the weekend and Merkel today in the EU Parliament.  One French minister was even talking about an EU Empire the other day!  :o  ::) 

I don't know about you lot, but I find the idea of a militerised EU quite a scary prospect, especially with the unaccountable aspect of the organisation.  People get hysterical about Trump having his finger on the button, but what about the idea of Drunker having his finger on France's the EU's nuclear button?  :-X

They are unlikely to admit it, but the EU is losing a fair bit of international prestige with BREXIT as they are losing the worlds 5/6th biggest economy, one of two permanent members of the UN security council, one of the few nuclear powers and a country that wields significant influence around the world.  I read recently that Singapore is looking at renegotiating their trade deal with the EU after BREXIT as it won't be as attractive without the UK.
