Gas struts for the earlier pre-face lift had a different part number from the facelift cars that had the grille attached .... not that it probably made much difference  ;)
It actually makes more of a difference than you realise. Fitted a tailgate with spoiler to a Sierra once but didn't change the struts... It wouldn't stay up, ooh er :D

I did it the other way round .... fitted later struts to my earlier car  :y
Boing, said Zebedee :D

Theoretically speaking, but they aren't counted where you voted, so the two pieces of paper should never meet again once you have been handed your ballot paper  ;)

If you wanted to mess with it, you only need to know any person's full name and address to vote, and as long as you vote before them, job done. Don't even need a polling card, so actually traceability is the least of your issues...

A couple of hours with a phone book and a decent map would probably allow you to cast a vote at at least three local polling stations before 8 am. Not sure what the punishment would be if you were caught :-\

I got the tree out of its box in the garage and plugged it in. If that counts :-\

I would suggest cam sensor, though it normally throws a P0340.

I would get some better diags first, plus somebody needs to undo the (incorrect and stupid) changes the last garage did.
Desmond might throw a gearbox code, but rarely a cam sensor one  ;)

It technically isn't, in that the ballot paper tally and electoral roll are on separate pieces of paper... But it doesn't take a genius to match them up.

I thought voting was supposed to be anonymous?  I know my ballot paper can be traced back to me.

Isn't that a bit naughty?
No, the electoral role isn't covered by the data protection act aiui :-\

Thank god that shit is over.

Now can we have some cuts to the NHS, education and can HS2?
Yes.

They wouldn't have any oil ;)

All they would be left with is tourism and whiskey. I was about to add salmon, but whilst that is profitable enough to fly it around the world, it's produced in Orkney and Shetland* where the oil comes from...  ;D

*Both of which only agreed to respect Scotland leaving the UK on the condition that they would remain independent of Scotland  8)
You can't add Salmon, he's going to jail for being a perv.
Nah, you're confusing the oily fish with Alex Salmond-Rushdie :D
