  1. Ah, so because someone has a past history for which they've served their time it's ok to murder them? Is that the logic you're going for? I hope not as it's a fairly lame excuse. The police still don't have a mandate to murder, even in the USA. Your argument falls at the first hurdle, but I don't really understand why you're even attempting to defend the actions of the police involved in this incident. The All Lives Matter is mantra is just white whining and whining from a position of privilege brought about by nothing more significant than skin colour. Aren't you fortunate to be able to do that without being persecuted for it, let alone having a knee pressing down on your neck. Waaa waaa waaa, what poor oppressed middle aged white guys we are. We have it so bad in this world. White privilege is very real. It's sometimes obvious, it's sometimes subtle. But it's always there. If you can't see it or appreciate that then perhaps you enable it. It's not enough to be non-racist, it's time we were all actively anti-racist - and a handful of replies on this thread are anything but.
  2. I suggest you first watch the video of Floyd's murder, then educate yourself as to why some people think that Black Lives Matter. It will save you looking silly.
  3. Nonsense comment and reply teetering on the Tommy Robinson level of idiocy. Can neither of you not see the not-so-subtle difference between the two incidents? Lee Rigby's extremist killers were caught, tried and imprisoned for life (min 45 years) within a handful of months of the attack. Investigation of his death was swift and thorough. Although it won't bring him back or offer even a tiny piece of solace to his family, (legal) justice was served. Floyd was killed by policemen who weren't even going to face any significant disciplinary action least of all a trial for their actions until the video of their actions went viral. They were going to get away with murder. Similar things happened with the deaths of Philando Castile, Terence Crutcher, Michael Brown and Alton Sterling. In these cases the officers involved were not convicted of any criminal offence. Floyd's death was the final straw for many Americans. Rigby's mother has just had to issue a statement requesting people stop making comparisons with Floyd's death, so how about you respect the wishes of the Rigby family and don't try to use his name to stir up division and outrage?
  4. An AM Vantage isn't exactly a cast iron place to put your cash either. Especially if you use it (but in Tony's case it sounds like mileage based depreciation is never going to be an issue - 800 miles, the shame of it) Mine is worth about 68p these days but I have done over 40k miles in it since I bought it, so I feel as though I have got my money's worth from it.
  5. There is no natural escape route for the refrigerant as a/c is a sealed for life system. If it's losing or has lost gas then it's faulty. On all cars (not just a Lotus) the condenser would be the first thing to inspect for damage or just general crunchy failure. If you're going to DIY a fix and have to open the system then replace the receiver drier as a service item too no matter what other repairs are needed. As for topping it back up again, you should find a sticker somewhere on the car giving details of how much refrigerant to use.
  6. In the meantime, try the OBD2 connector under the dash (on the passenger side) rather than the one in the boot.
  7. Is that the blue one which had similarly coloured smoke from the back which was somehow fixed by replacing the cambelt and exhaust manifold?
  8. Nothing. Nothing at all. Stay at Home. Save lives.
  9. Musk's ego knows no bounds. He's committed to reopening the California plant against the orders of the local authority and has pretty much dared Governor Newsom to arrest him for the violation. In the meantime he's threatened to move the factory out of state if he didn't get his own way. He's a knob. (Still waiting for his magic cave-rescuing submarine to demonstrate its prowess.)
  10. Banksy's picture (in Bibbo's post above) was presented to Southampton General Hospital which is where my daughter spent some time while they nailed/bolted/screwed/glued her right foot back together. The staff there are great.
  11. Highest death rate in Europe? Firstly, it's a bit premature to be calling the final score just yet and secondly not all sums are equal. As for Starmer, yes his expertise in hindsight is wonderful.
  12. It seems lots of people have owned it but not many of them appeared to drive it.
  13. Isn't that some sort of sports exhaust? It does go broom broom doesn't it?
  14. "Alive and well" . Chinny reckon.
