I doubt it Lizzie, but it dosn't stop the scare/doom mongers from bringing it up!  ::)
If that was aimed at me, no, I brought it up as a sensible, though tongue-in-cheek, option to solve all the issues...

Ireland - happy
IRA - happy
Unionists - a bit pissed, but who cares
Pragmatic EU leavers - happy, as no indeterminate backstop
Hardcore hard exit EU leavers - a bit pissed, but who cares


Hmmm, maybe it is an option :P  ::)

So was I.  Im not sure if anything came out of the old Morris plant - now one of those office trading estates for the past 30yrs - in the BL days, I think it became just an extension to the Austin plant.  I'd have to ask.  I vaguely remember the bridge over the ringroad.

They certainly both produced the 'A' series engine
I thought the A series was built in Coventry?  I'd have to double check with one of the old duffers to confirm...

2. Can I have some of what your smoking / snorting ?   ::) ;D
I was hoping to borrow some of yours ;D.  It can't all be down to Farage's brainwashing.

head mechanic of the GPO Austin/Morris  fleet around London!) :D ;)
Oh dear.  I remember those days.

With affection, I hope, for those lovely green vans ;D ;D :y
No. They were shit to start with, long before the GPO "trained" mongrels oppsed them further.

Did I ever mention the time my front wheel overtook me under braking for a bend, because they had overtightened the wheelbolts?  Or the time the engine fell out because they overtightened the engine mounts?  Just 2 of loads of loads of potentially life threatening incidents, all caused by those mongrels.

I speak as a former student there, although at the time I had far bigger issues than a degree in Urban Planning and German...  :-X
Where you allowed into Oxford, or still kept on the outskirts of Wheatley ;D

I was speaking of the University, which produced all those Soviet spies and most of the leading lights in leftie Liberalism since the 50,s.  ;)
That uni lost all face when Oxford Poly became Brookes University ;)
Nowt wrong with Oxford Brookes...
You mean Oxford Poly. Which had such a bad reputation, the Universities wouldn't, then, allow any of the Poly's campus in Oxford ;D

And just as predictably, was used in the commons today to apply pressure on May to think carefully about what she is doing.
Its sick.
Agreed, but they know its a way to make enough headlines to potentially influence things.  Maybe the vote should have been to leave, but make NI part of Ireland. That also solves the backstop ;)

Also, a Labour MP in the commons today called the hard line brexiteers in the Tory party Fascists. To my knowledge, squeaker Bercow didn't so much as raise an eyebrow. Disgusting.
Bercow's recent actions do seem to be bias towards the leave side. Maybe he was evening things up ;)

Did someone mention Oxford?

They, that is Morris Oxford cars, were great cars for their time.  Very comfortable and reliable if my dad's example was anything to go by; registration number AOU 772C if it is still out there! ;D ;D ;D ;)
No, Morris cars were shite. Awful. I know a few of the last remaining Morris employees, and they will tell you how bad they were ;).  If you had to bolt something in on the line, and it was too many bolts, try to get at least one in tightish, even if it goes cross threaded...

I was talking about early to mid-1960's Morris and Austin cars (that you probably do not remember as you are so young! ;D ;D ;)), not the abominations that followed in the 1970's TB :D ;)

People don't learn ECP sell tat.

That's OK if you need some quick, or its cheap, but most ECP shite is overpriced, even with the usual DFS type off codes


Yeah, yeah, I bought one of their very high quality exhausts yesterday, which obviously is Timax junk (sorry, Klaurius, due to Timax's bad name, they rebranded) at a premium price (using a code). But I wanted it yesterday.


I'm actually sorely tempted to weld the hanger back on the 17yr old one that came off, and bin the ECP supplied one...

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Re: xenon bulb upgrade.
« on: Yesterday at 17:37:41 »
I should replace the 3.2ís bulbs, but current ones good enough. Also if you replace bulbs should also do adjusters as well.
What they like with oncoming traffic in the dark, particularly if wet?


I'd only repair adjusters if necessary.

I am guessing you are not a fan!
Have you noticed as its become more popular, only 1 or 2 cars make it through each set of green lights now?  And everyone waits for rush hour to finish before pulling out at a T junction?

If that NHS story is right, then I'm all for putting N Leave back on the table, contrary to previous comments about ruling it out.

Meanwhile, the IRA have resurfaced and started blowing things up again.
That, sadly, was also predictable.  Lets hope that comes to nothing :(
