I have a sneaking suspicion Theresa will get this 'watery Brino' through parliament.

I'm wondering if some MP's are starting to lose their nerve with all this talk of 'No Deal being the end of the world'.

Should be interesting. :)
She certainly has more of a chance this time, Opti. If I thought the end game was a no deal, I would hope to see her deal voted down. But, if there's a chance of a further referendum or a Corbyn government, I would prefer it to pass.
It's such a watered down version of brexit, that we might even be better just cancelling Art 50 and staying as we were. Better that than a half arsed brexit where we are 'out' but subservient.

Things really shouldn't be 'up in the air' at this stage of the game, but the Tories have been taking chunks out of each other for decades over Europe, so it was never going to be simple.

If she does pull a rabbit from the hat no doubt she be seen on every TV news channel saying 'brexit means brexit' and she has delivered the Brexit that the British people voted for.........which of course is boll**ocks.
A fair percentage of the people that she cannot satisfy wanted all the foreign Johnnies to be rounded up onto the Herald of Free Enterprise Pride of Folkestone, then taken out into the Channel and sunk ::)

Compromise is all about being disappointed ;)

No deal has apparently been the Apocalypse and Armageddon all rolled into one since before Brexit became a thing ;D

Thanks Doctor Gollum, the passenger side on mine looks like this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-OMEGA-B-DRIVERS-HEADLIGHT-NO-BROKEN-FIXINGS-OR-BRACKETS/163484087605, not the one in your link.

Thanks
Addy
I'm confused... The one you have just linked to is a genuine driver's side, and near as I can tell is the same as the one in my garage which I linked to yesterday... ???

Stock V70 is also available with AWD, but rare  :y

Not really, as long as you’re willing to travel there are plenty of XC70s - mostly in Jockistan  ;)

I think Al means V70's like this, the XC70 is a different beastie.  ;)
Thar do 8)

I was watching a manual D5 AWD V70 of '55 vintage on ebay a while back, went for about £350 with a gear selector issue... They're rare, but more common than FWD XC70s, which also exist, although most of these are the 2.0 diseasal ;)

AWD S80 is a very rare beast, but could be worth seeking out for a best of both car 8) again more likely to be plod or v8  :D

Definitely a pattern unit...

You might get lucky and find the retaining spring in the bowels of the unit :-\

Only permanent fix is to replace it.
