I believe that until fairly recently the Hillman Hunter was still manufactured in Iran, so I'd imagine there are still a few going round there.

That is correct! When I was there they were/are called Paycans with no light clusters back or front fitted!!  :o :o
I believe they bought the old tooling from Rootes back in the 70's when the Shah was in power.

And they won't sling bags for 25k a year, so of no use as a quick fix, even if you could reference them :-X

You know what you are talking about DG! I used to work in Terminal 3 Heathrow technical side of it. It was the same then! They just did not have the (any or interest) knowledge of anything. Used to rile me up big time!  :-\ :( :(

11000+ have come across the english channel so far this year. Double what it was this time last year. FFS we cannot keep going like this, but the dogooders were on the radio this morning saying we need them! Meanwhile we will be paying for them staying in 4* hotels for years. Can't these people understand what is going on and how much it costs? Obviously not!  >:( >:(

Blind Faith was another concert before the Stones on another date. Brian Jones died two days before the concert but they decided to carry on as a memorial to Brian and that was when they had to pull in Mick Taylor. Mick J read a poem for Brian by Shelley and released thousands of butterflies.  8) 8)

I was at the Stones concert in Hyde park on the 5th July 1969! (showing off my age now!)
Sat on my arse for over 8 hours and there was no way you could leave otherwise you could not get back to where you were sitting.
I am just behind the black geyzer gyrating around in the crowd if you look at the very grainy video of "Stones in the park"
Ended up sleeping in the Roundhouse theatre under the bar and did a runner in the morning. Also jumped the barrier at the nearest tube station to get back to south Londun where I was living at the time.
Great day though!!  8) 8)

If any of you guys had/will be bothered to read up on the whole affair on the miners and you will find that it was not MT that closed the most mines! it was a Harold Wilson???. I was in Port Talbot during the worst of it after coming back from South Africa. I will always remember talking to a few union leaders in the hotel I was staying in and meeting one of the many union guys there. One of them said to me quote "do you know what NCB means?" Yes, I said, nope he uttered its "No C*NT BOTHERS" I changed my whole outlook on the miners and unions after that.  >:( >:(

I have just been watching a UK commercial channel here in Mallorca and Mr Kipling has always made exceedingly good cakes but I notice he has changed colour!! AND he looks like a black santa. Well, I can't remember him being like that when I was kid. I weep, I really do! >:( >:(

Saw her in Wimbledon around 1980 I'd stopped at the lights & she crossed in front of me , absolutely stunning back then.

Yea Rangie, I saw the both of them when we did "a round with Henry Cooper" a charity fun run at the white city stadium in 1981. They were running just in front of us. She had a lovely arris! and long thick red hair.
