    On that note Wendy could get a 25% pay rise for going agency but they are 0 hour contracts AND many agency nurses I know sometimes go for weeks without any work or just a day here or there.

    That is the risk of self employment isnt it.    I have only ever been SE and have had week when I earnt 0 and some when I did more than alright.   Doesnt suit everybody.

    Personally I think it should be a vote for the whole of the UK as it will effect everyone in the Union the same way leaving the EU was. I would agree to it on that Basis and that it is the final one ever.

    Deleted my thoughts on reflection!!

    One thing is for sure - the Governments response to vaccine development has been first class. 

    Having just had the first dose at Maidstone Hospital it was very well organised and a credit to all those running and taking part in it.   Something we should be proud of.    We bitch and moan alot in this country but we are able when we need to to get our s**t together.      The person who got on the ball with ordering the jabs early deserves credit as well.

  4. Having a clear out and I have a bag of 10 of the washers ( ally ) and 10 of the rubber washers that seal the wiper spindle to  the body shell.   They are M20 and I used a set on my old 88 esprit.   Not sure what other esprits or maybe excels  they fit but probabaly most.    I am happy to send out a pair free to anyone in the Uk who wants them or the whole lot to maybe somone like @Sparky who can use them.  In the parts list for 88-92 cars  its Page 17.21a and parts no 19 and 20.

     Personally, I have nothing against the dogs - they don't know any better. Unlike some (not by any means all) owners who are entitled, selfish, muppets.

    Bit like life in general.     Im sure  similar sentiments ( entitled, selfish, muppets) go through Regs mind every time a motorbike or sports  car with loud exhausts goes past us on a walk.    And you would both be right.  Thats life in general, too many rights not enough responsibilities.  He was a rescue from a less salubrious part of town.

    Guess Im lucky I live in a part of the world where its not prevalent.



    Err not so sure about that. my son's girlfriend is a junior doctor at the hospital in Norwich and is far from having  a fun time with covid.    Her comment to him yesterday was that was she was getting sick and tired of signing death certs!! First time round was all oaps , she now has people 20s and up with it to care for.

    Living in the ‘Garden of England’ as I do (the end of the garden that has the compost heap), it takes me 15 minutes to get out of the built-up area, to find roads that are not really what one might call decent. Traffic has increased so much in high population density areas, that driving anywhere is more of a challenge than a pleasure. For me, a pure sports car is becoming less desirable as a result.

    I live other side  of the garden and its no better here so   I have to agree with you Ian.

    If it was a private sale then he's got no right of redress unless it's been misdescribed as previously mentioned.

    However, I wonder if he could make an argument that if you made a living (or part of a living) from buying, doing up and then selling cars then you could be seen as a part time motor trader? If that was the case then the car would have to be 'fit for purpose' which, if it broke down within a day, it probably wasn't?  

    That might concern me.  What are the numbers you can sell in a year before you are a trader?    Or is it buy and sell with view to make a profit.  

       I think its buyers remorse.   He fell in love with an idea, got it , drove it down the road and realised it was not like  a new car in a pretty dress  and pounced on the clutch issue.   Probably shit himself at how vulnerable you feel next to a lorry.    As has been said  most of us would have looked at this with glee as an early  chance to get the boiler suit on and get oily hands. 

      I always use the AA letter for any cars I have sold.
