It seems that Jo Swinson has a covert fan base on OOF!  :)

So here's the lady herself!  :y

Beaconsfield is well posh!  8)

James changed my cambelt in a parking space on Beaconsfield high street outside a wine & cigar shop, and the owner kept looking out of the window at two blokes stripping down an old car outside his shop in the rain.  ::)

I think he must have been impressed with the speed and competence that James carried out the job!  :y  Bastid could have made us a cuppa though.  :-\  ;D

Yes you're not allowed to install oil fired boilers in new builds anymore and I think gas boilers are banned in new builds from 2025.  ::)

The younger generations will have to get used to ice on the inside of their windows in winter...  ;D

Never did me any harm!  :)

Think I'll install a log burner, so if it comes to it at least I'll be able to burn the furniture!  ;D

Yes Dutch farmers took to the streets in their tractors recently to protest about proposed measures to tackle climate change.

A similar protest took part yesterday in The Hague by the construction industry.  Not much reported by the UK media it seems....  ::)

I like this Ovlov!  :y
I wonder, if being MoT exempt, there isn't a growing market for slightly rough and ready cars like this...

Run through the oily bits, brakes and tyres and kick it down the road  :-\

I'd quite like a usable classic as a local run about.  :y

You might be onto something though, as here's another one that's been fettled.  :)

Not sure about the colour on that one though.... Looks better on a Marina!  ;D

General Discussion Area / Watch Out The Russians Are On Manoeuvres!
« on: 30 October 2019, 23:17:17 »
While we are consumed with election fever, the Russians have sent 10 submarines into the North Atlantic and have also tested an intercontinental ballistic missile, which they fired from a submarine in the White Sea off of Archangel to it's target thousands of kilometres away on the Kamchatka Peninsular in the far east of the country.  A stones throw from Alaska incidentally...   :-X

Maybe these submarines are sat out here in the North Atlantic so the sailors can catch up with their social media accounts for the next few weeks?  ;)

She'd get more votes if she was a bit more liberal with them!  ;D

Dozens of the useless specimens announcing they aren't standing again, before their constituents kick them out. The swamp seems to be draining itself.

I do hope that the good people of Beaconsfield kick out Dominic Grief!  :y

He's standing as an independent now, but I read elsewhere that the Limp Dums aren't fielding a candidate against him.  :-\

Tory/Brexit coalition perhaps...
Or, if no overall majority, Labour, SNP, Lib Dem coalition.


That would be time to call in the Generals.

We could probably rent some from Zimbabwe cheaply enough!  ;D

West Dorset and my MP is the infamous Sir Oliver Letwin!  ::)

He didn't bother to vote yesterday, but as he's standing down, he's probably a bit demob happy now!  :-X

West Dorset voted Leave in the referendum and without checking it was about 53% for leave, so pretty much mirrored the national result.  :)

Maybe Jo Swinson will be our next PM!  ;D

No, Boris thinks he can crush the Brexit Party.  :-\

He might be right, as I think the cracks have started to appear with some BP MEP's support for Boris's version of the WA&PD.  ::)

Will the BP go the same way as UKIP?  ???
