"Mr Richards [Mondeo driving victim] was in the Army for nine years, serving as an engineer and safety officer in Iraq, Afghanistan and Jordan."

Poor bugger survived tours out there only to get mown down on the M40  :(
Perhaps he made a conscious decision to stop the vehicle and potentially save everyone behind...

Often wonder what I would do in that scenario... Quite often pull up behind people reversing off the M23  at the gatwick exit

Have you clocked off?  ;D

Yep, officially. And walked the dog. And now I'm on a conference call.. so no.  :P
Only joking, don't get all defensive on me  ;D

I'm not defen.. wait, that's being defensive. ;D
Don't you go all passive aggressive on us...

Of course, no one has mentioned the old RWD v FWD situation. Give me FWD anytime in wet conditions on the motorway.
So that you definitely die as you lose traction AND steering simultaneously  ::)


Makes sod all difference if the tyre is the cause.
Lego tyres aren't a good idea on a road vehicle right enough ;)

Modern auto, wwd and turbo is the trifecta of total lack of control in slippery stuff...

Accelera if you must... Winter tyres are cheaper than standard at about £60 a corner from Camskill :y

Otherwise you should probably dig a bit deeper and buy some real tyres... Dunlop Blueresponse seem to work.  ;)

This is the first conservatory we've had , only been in the house for 7 weeks but at the moment we love it got cane type table & chairs & cane sofa & chairs eat meals out there listen to music etc. Guy at work was quoted £6000 to have a "proper" roof put on his declined the offer.

Cheers for that. I might get a quote just for a laugh. We do use it in the winter, particularly with dinner guests, but I'm just so mean I hate turning the heating on. Mind you, I get free electricity from my solar panels, so the underfloor costs very little, and a fan heater warms it very quickly. 8)

Get a radiator fitted thatís on main house feed, thatís what I did. Helps a lot.  :y
In the link Aaron posted, it says the heating system should be independent and separately controlled.  :-\
It is... It's called the Solar/Door Temperature Regulation System...

Utterly useless, but completely independent of any actual control :D

It's really hard for doctors and nurses to do that, and builders, waiters, waitresses, etc.. I'd wager more people are employed in "non-desk" jobs than are employed in desk jobs.

That said, even with desk jobs there has been a recent trend of ending home working as companies like HP and BT suddenly realised they were paying for very large offices that were almost always empty people to sit around in their pyjamas posting on car forums.. so instead of ditching the office, they told everyone to get their arses in to the office..

He types. From his desk. At home. In his pyjamas ;D

FTFY. :y
Indeed ;D

My Scottish run was August last year. Return journey took 24 hours, partly due to an 11 am ferry, so an earlier start than choice therefore requiring two sleep stops.
