Always amazes me that Americans go on about "Freedom and Liberty " when the reality is they have one of the most oppressive police systems in the world ?

Yes indeed, and where guns rule, and the nation is divided.

So that poster says it all about the USA mindset of today :'( :'(
Actually, in a healthy way, because by and large, they strongly respect each person's rights. Unless you live in a leftie leaning city or State... Which is, Incidentally, where most crime happens.

Really?! :o :o

That is not what I found during my visits to the US in past years.  If you read, watch, and study the politics going on today their society is split, with one side not listening to the other.

Rather like when the poor guy (black) was ordered off the crowded hotel bus outside by JFK Airport by a bloke (white) with a gun that my family and I witnessed.  Not an isolated incident, and today one side of politics want to shoot the other and visa versa. All correspondents and observers are reporting that it is a more divided country all over than ever before, Trump, your hero, helping it all along :(

Actually, I think America's divisions were caused not so much by Trump, but by an inability by his opponents to accept the outcome of the democratic election in 2016.  ::)

New offside rear brake caliper and rear brake pads (both sides) on the Mondeo.  :)

MOT is due at the end of the month so after yesterdays exertions I popped off the front wheels to check the front pads which are fine.  :y

I was going to adjust the handbrake, but discovered the adjuster is under the car, hidden behind a heat shield, which has to come off and you have to pop off one of the exhaust pipe rubbers as well FFS!  >:(

As it's 100% certain that the heatshield bolts are rusted solid and the exhaust pipe rubber is probably perished, I decided to let sleeping dogs lie and see how it pans out at the MOT.  :)

Oh and I dismantled the trim in the passenger footwell to get at the fuse box, so I could replace the front fog lights fuse.  ::)

Why oh why did Ford make the simple jobs so bleddy awkward!  >:(

That could catch on!  ;D

And less than a year before he told the DUP conference in Belfast that he (nor any UK PM) could ever even consider putting a border down the Irish sea.
He should have held his nerve and threatened to walk away without a deal. Then just let the clock run down and wait for a phone call.
The whole issue was and is a red herring. On the one hand the amount of illegal trade across the border is miniscule in the grand scheme of things and not worth worrying about.
On the other hand the border is porous as a sponge. Always has been and always will be, and no-one will ever stop it.
A small number of people living either side of it will always get rich from smuggling across it.

The Benn Surrender Act made No Deal illegal and the EU knew that, so Johnsons options were very limited.  :(

Lord Frost said the other day that that Barnier and his team's attitude changed after the Benn Surrender Act was passed, as they knew they had us over a barrel.  >:(

Boris. Am I the only person who sees Boris flit from one disaster to another but come out smelling of roses,  just about.?

To the long list you could add Northern Ireland and Gibraltar.

What next , no potatoes or bread?

No your not. He has done it his whole life. He is no more than a chancer. He has got away with it so far, but it will bite him on the arse at some point.
He should have been forced to resign over the lies he told the Commons and the country. The only reason he got away with it is it seems there is no-one to replace him with.
The shambles he has created in Norn Irn is one of the most incompetent and dishonest political acts I have ever seen.
That should also have finished him, and in any previous Govt. it would have done.

True enough, but it is difficult to see what else he could have done given the events in 2019 with that rotten parliament and the Benn Surrender Act that tied his hands behind his back.  ::)

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall in the meeting at a country house in Cheshire that Boris Johnson had with Leo Varadkar where the NIP was agreed. Johnson went in saying there might have to be checks on the UK/RoI border and came out saying they'd done a fantastic deal to put a border down the Irish Sea. I wonder what messages Varadkar carried from the IRA?  ???  :-\  :-X

I had 10 minutes on the BMW configurator over lunch and saw you can actually spec a tow bar on one of those things  ;D.

That's sure to turn some heads at the local caravan park M'Lud!  8)

You can easily lose an hour on these things. ;D

I tried to be 'reasonable with options'.

Pro Pack.
Thundernight paint.
Aluminium interior trim.
M adaptive suspension.

These options should help with resale. I hope.


I actually wanted a used car. One about 2-3 years old but the prices were so close to that of a new car that it didn't make financial sense. The used car market is currently insane. :-\

Yes it'll make all the difference when you take it down to WBAC!  ;D

Approximately lunchtime Monday 16th, I spotted a dark green Y reg saloon heading towards Axminster, Devon on the A358 from Chard Somerset, just past Tytherleigh.  :)

Christ on a bike. :D  Four bloody police cars to sort that out. Did they have to "T" pack him?. ::)

He was probably Tweeting out transphobic/homophobic/fatphobic/racist type stuff as he sped down the outside lane of the M3 on his bicycle to get that sort of Police response!  ???  ;D
