I seem to have caught a spot of that myself, contracted either in Londonium or Walsall.  What shitholes I get sent to :(

The Echo ? is that still going ? I only buy the Big Issue North when I'm out and about.  Which reminds me, HOW many homeless rough sleepers does Liverpool have.  There was one in every other door way.
I blame T May and her cronies.
I blame the New Labour experiment

The subsequent governments have been trying to curb the spending (of money we aint got) initiated by smiler and co.

What we had Tues evening settled on car (and grass etc), then promptly froze solid.

Got bored scrapping it within 2mS, so started them up, and went in for a brew.

All defrosted when I went back out :y

As said, they are trying to enforce a significant change in your conditions of employment and you will have rights.
Things have probably changed now, but I remember back in the mid 90s seeking advice on whether my emploter could unilaterally change a fundamental part of my contract, and it turns out they could fairly easily, if slightly underhand.

So defo worth seeking professional advice.

Bank keep asking me to go to online banking every time i use the local branch. No thanks, says i, don,t trust you to keep my details secure. Trouble is, can you trust anyone with it when buying on line as well?  :-\
I suspect if the bank was compromised/breached, your data would be included along with everyone elses', irrespective of whether or not you use online wanking.

BMW's don't like the cold either, spent 10 mins trying to open fuel filler cap this morning. Frozen solid.

Nearly had to go back for my car.....

That's pretty woeful, its not even particularly cold - in the grand scheme of things  ::)
Why ???

It was raining all evening yesterday, then it snowed and then temperature dropped below freezing...

Any moisture inside the unsealed flap would freely condense onto any surface and promptly freeze.

And I thought you were bright...  ::)

No different to doors freezing onto saturated/wet frame seals, which incidentally are air tightish not water tight... And given that they're designed to be opened with a sub 10lb pull, no wonder that people break everything trying to rip the doors open with one foot on the adjacent panel ::)
Never had any opening, be it boot, bonnet, door or fuel filler frozen so much I couldn't open it.  I've had it where you can feel the door on the seal as you open, but not "stuck"

And we having seen cold temps for a few years TBH, so its a bit poor if people are finding things frozen shut, IMHO.

In proper cold (sub -15C before windchill) I've had the door key slots have a layer of ice over, which needs digging out with the key blade...   ...but can't remember the last car I had that needed a key to open.

Enjoyed another bone rattling ride in a BMW M140i Rover 35....

Until I'm totally forced to, I'm not touching 3.2 suspension now, it rides like silk compared to the BMW.
Fixed for accuracy. Something you can regularly use when chatting to your mate

Who's furthest north on here with Tech 2 services? as the car's in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire.

Suppose taking a day trip to travel to someone would be an option (would be her first long-distance drive) too.

Me, Nottingham  :y
Well, technically, Highlander is further North.  But too far North for Lincolnshire :D

Took the Battlebus to Little Oxford, dumped it and got the Chiltern Slug into Londonium.  Obviously it was late, but only by about 15mins, which generally counts as on time for the Slug.

Caught slug home. Obviously it was late, but only by 10m, so that probably counts as 5 mins early when it comes to the slug.

Wiped the snow off the Battlebus, drove it home.  No snow in Brackley town, but a nice dusting on Mount Brackley, making it look wintery.

As I drove past the rugby club, I see they are out training tonight.

Most modern OS have a load of mouse settings, both sensitivity and acceleration.

If these are set to medium, and the mouse is too ungainly, the mouse likely had it, esp if optical.  Though the flipside is yours might be sluggish, which again could be settings or faulty mouse if optical

I live a lever. Makes 3 point turns far easier and quicker.

Needless to say electric handbrakes as satans work as well

But I seem to be overly sensitive to noisy wipers, and to ones that aren't effective.

And I detest Omega rain sensing wipers with a passion.  Why oh why oh why do the bloody things have to wipe when they detect a molecule of water within 100 miles  >:(
Can you not adjust the sensitivity on an omega? I forget.
No. Sadly.
