Are they still offering long term/one way all inclusive breaks in Cuba?

Ok, sorry.
I've only got an old Tom Tom, which is still useful, but cannot cope with house names, only numbers.
Can any satnav recognise house names?

The address databases are only as good as the person programming them...

No, I meant that it would not have been so time-saving if lots of others had also bothered to use that utility.

Ron.
Fixed :D

Breaking News:  The Home Office have sent a letter to the woman's parents explaining she is to be stripped of her British citizenship!! :y :y
I haven't delved into this yet and, whilst I'm not doubting you story, Lizzie, I was under the impression that it was against international law to make someone stateless.

You could be right, but for once perhaps the UK government is standing up for itself as a Nation Sovereign State and not being the puppet of others.

Perhaps Brexit is already making a difference!! ;)
WTF does this have to do with Brexit  ???

A303, M3, A272, A283, A27, A259 if you want a slightly more scenic route :y

Almost a straight line too...
Actually scratch that... Your route saves two hours and 30 miles, both of which are a surprise  :o

It goes almost past my front door, too, in which case I'll WFH, put the kettle on and cost even more time. ;)
What day was the shuttle booked for?  ;)

Pension freezes aren't a big deal as the vast majority of expats have become so with some form of private income. The state pension is then effectively an bonus rather than critical income.

You might be right that it's minimal amounts of money, but if you've paid into the system all your working life, why should your pension be frozen just because you decide to see out your days elsewhere.  ::)
Why should it increase if you are no longer contributing to the pot to fund the increases? By this I mean paying local taxes on goods and services rather than employment contributions. Incidentally, private pensions are, I believe, taxed at the relevant income tax rate based on the country/state that the person is resident/draws the payment in rather where the fund is held.

Equally, I don't see why someone on benefits their entire lives should be given anything beyond basic shelter and food stamps once of retirement age...

That sort of journey would be priced on the shortest route, regardless of actual route taken, whether it be a customer or driver choice ;)

Look, don't go letting facts and logic get in the way of a good joke  :P ;)
Actually, it isn't a journey that many would take on... Being south of the river...  :D

Soon 'no deal' will be removed from the equation and we will have the Brexit the EU wants.

Anything with 'the customs union' or 'a customs union' is not Brexit.
Won't save jobs at Honda. That decision was probably made a couple of years ago should the profitability drop below a predetermined level.

Unite will obviously blame Brexit as the alternative would mean admitting that they have nailed yet another workforce to the wall in the name of rights.

PS first... That's 'Indirect Night Lighting' for the centre console. Standard on Elite and part of the 'Rain Sensor Pack'  :y

TB will doubtless say that they are shit, but Apec do the job just make sure they are vented as solids will result in death*.

No excuses for not fitting genuine pads though as they are readily available on Ebay for 10-12 :y

*This might sound dramatic, but if you use solids, the pistons will eventually pass the seals as the pads wear, resulting in catastrophic fluid loss... The result of which will be soiled pants at best and total carnage and fatalities at worst.
