Given the origins, and the fact that most of the cases are in Kent, would it be so much of a leap to conclude that this is isolated to the boat people coming from French France?

Anchor a Barge or three in between the shipping lanes and use it as a quarantine and processing centre. Three months living in a container mid channel might help deter some, and it would mitigate the import of such diseases...

Sachs/Boge are the factory shock and are available for reasonable money. Links to follow.  ;)

Springs I personally recommend Kilen, with HD ones for the rear.  :y

Electrically speaking the 4LxxE is ostensibly the same box.

The 4 is the number of forward gears,
L is the layout
xx is the torque rating
E is the electronic control instead of mechanical.  :y

A mate of mine now retired was in the Police & did a lot of extra hours whilst supporting the local force, helped him pay off a massive chunk of his mortgage, he thought Maggie was heaven sent.
I believe there were multiple cases of the police waving £5 notes in the faces of the miners manning the picket lines. All they had was a pittance of strike pay.
Quite right too. In order to earn wages, you first have to do a day's work.

When asked about Thatcher my grandmother would say....

"Well, she is a plucky girl, but the job of PM is a job for a man.

She spoke a lot of sense. :y
Your grandmother or Margaret?

Coal mining. Now there is a job no one should need to do.
OK, what about bauxite or gravel or lithium or copper etc?

Most raw materials come from the ground. Which gives two choices... mines, enclosed or opencast, or returning to the Stone Age.  ???

Unions only exist to serve the few that run them. The last people they have any interest in are the paid up members.

Without unions we might still have cheap energy and generations of families not dependant on dole money :-X

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! >:( >:(

The new Santa lives in Jamaica.

Lapland Santa has retired. ::)

Thatís due to global warming melting a lot of their snow :D :D ;)
And I thought he was forced out by divisity.

One of the new start groups at work has BLM in the title of their WhatsApp group.

Safe to say there isn't a single white, Latino or anyone ethnically East of Djibouti within it...

Equal rights means equal treatment.

You can bet her colleagues didn't treat each other any better. Or worse.  :-X

If you can't hold your own in an operational environment, then you're in the wrong place.

Working at Heathrow, and both are very well represented...

We wont.We could ressurect the Beatles and send them over there, and they still wouldnt win.
We will probably still come close to last.
It has been a political point scoring exercise for a long time now, and indicates that most European dont like the British, apart from when we are in their countries either spending our money, or defending them from invaders.
I highly doubt it ;D
