But, as I said a few posts ago - they handed this decision back to the people and promised the people they would implement the decision they took. They also voted to invoke article 50, which meant leaving on 29th March - deal or no deal - and reneged on their word.
Hopefully, they will soon pay the price for being so contemptuous of those who elect them.

The 64 - 66mph trucks are the Irish ones cruising down the M6 in no particular hurry.  ;)

They say you shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth but...


Mrs 944's mother passed away a couple of weeks ago and we stand to inherit a 2010 (I think) Citroen Berlingo Multispace.  This car has some sentimental value to her Grandmother who is still with us, so I have been banned from immediately selling it and buying literally anything else, or setting fire to it.

I wonder what the minimum socially acceptable time is before we can sell it on :-\

As its French, about half an hour should suffice.  :y

I too enjoy spending time and posting various shite on Autoshite. I also find the ban on politics there refreshing. Ive got OOF for that.  :D ;D

Wrong. They agreed to subcontract that decision to the electorate and promised they would implement it. That's why most of them wont admit to wanting to stop it, but are doing everything they can think of to do just that.

Your all wrong Im afraid. Before the EU realised what a pushover she and her negotiators were, they offered her a Canada style free trade deal. She turned them down and set off down the tortuous route which led us to where we are now.
She rivals Blair in dishonesty, Major in incompetence and Brown in being in deep water but unable to swim. The worst political strategist of modern times.
If she really believed in country before career she would have stood down after her diabolical election campaign cost the Tories their majority.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.  :)

As does mine, so when I venture down that London to visit the daughter I will take the Omega rather than the 190. As the savings on ULEZ charge will probably outweigh the fuel savings.

Your idea of a cheap commuter car is very different to mine. I paid 350 for mine, five years ago. Probably spent 700 on maintenance in that time, and fuel averages 15p per litre and 40mpg. I expect it to last many more years.  :)

True, as long as you don't want to commute, or travel for business into most of the major UK cities in the near future. For example the Birmingham congestion charge/clean air thing/not-so-stealth tax would add 1800 per year to your commuting costs.  :o

I can't deny that there is probably(?) no cheaper way to run a car than the way you run yours, but its also true that not many people, myself included would go to the level of effort required to run a car in the way you do. Different horses for different courses  :y

Agreed.  :y

Boris might not get a look in. He isn't that popular among the MP,s and they narrow it down to two candidates for us members to choose between. We shall see.

I've been meaning to post an update as I'm almost exacty2 months and 5000miles into my ownership.

.......

So, in summary,  :y

I was listening Jimmy!  :y  ;D

Sounds great and I'm quite into the idea of an EV!  :y 

I wonder what the values of the G-Whizz are like these days?  :D  ;D

Don't worry sir Tig, I know almost no one will be interested unless it either leaves me stranded or sets fire to itself  ;D

They're a considered choice, i have half a mind to pick up an early leaf with a cr@p battery in the non-too-distant. Companies are starting to pop up that will upgrade/replace the packs to 40kwh for around the 8k mark.

This could mean you have a full EV, 150mile car, for 15k. Makes for a very cheap commuter car if you run it for 5yrs or so.


I'd be tempted to drop a V8 in it so it becomes a hybrid.

Environmentally friendly you see. :)

The polar bears would love you!  ;)

Rather than being caused by Brexit, it might have actually stood a chance of survival if Brexit had happened earlier. EU emissions rules make it very difficult to be globally competitive - rightly or wrongly. Many foreign competitors get a lot of state aid to keep them competitive. That is illegal in the EU - rightly or wrongly.
As mentioned, the "advanced" west has found it very difficult to compete in the old industries, with the "less developed" Far East. They are much less concerned with pollution, health & safety, wages, workers rights etc. etc.
Its been a long time since our future lay in heavy industry.

May should be gone by Monday. The fly in the ointment though, would be that we wont have a Prime Minister to greet Trump when he comes to visit in early June.
That fact might just buy her another couple of weeks.  :-\
