  1. Hilperton would be better. It's doable from devizes but you wouldn't have time to appreciate the journey.
  2. Which ever one you think Jeremy Corbyn is.
  3. If you don't even know who the prime minister is, should you be discussing political matters?
  4. It's not about Nazis, it's about vegetarians. Corbyn is a vegetarian leading an anti semetic party too. You have agreed with tigerr too so by your logic you are bound to "stand beside" them and buy into any and every opinion they express.
  5. Interesting. Hitler was a vegetarian, ergo all vegetarians are Nazis?
  6. Firstly, it's not just low skilled workers. Aside from that, given the discussion of socialism sloshing about this is a good point. God save us from middle class socialists, "them" talking about "us". If you haven't done 30 years on the tools, in the factory, on the site etc, you have nothing to say. That includes Jeremy Corbyn and his crew of "socialists" whose knowledge of the lot of the working people came from university. What happened to MPs coming up through the unions? But back to the wage thing, there are people waving left wing credentials who as soon as this subject comes up defend the low paid by claiming low pay is good for them otherwise they couldn't afford the resulting price increases and might price themselves out of a job. All the frothing at the mouth Tory objections to the minimum wage; regurgitated by people who consider themselves lefties. This contorted support for the sort of undercutting and exploitation that would have had a REAL old school socialist putting out his pipe, taking off his coat and rolling up his sleeves is because the alternative is to accept that the tool for exploitation that freedom of movement had become might be a reason to vote leave. It is impossible for there to be a logical reason for leave so the left wing conscience flips to rabid Tory because all principles are mutable except loyalty to the EU.
  7. Nothing like a few vested interests to give an input the parties don't have to account for. Still be good if it was paid for by the Kremlin would it?
  8. Righto Mike. It's a bugger trying to diagnose over the internet as you know from your own area of expertise. If this alternator has actually been assembled with an inbuilt fault then I think that would be damned unfair, ungentlemanly and should be ruled out of order. Thing is that the warning light is connected directly to the positive brush and if the light is finding a negative then it's not a positive on the positive brush, ergo, no charge. But it is charging so the lamp cannot be connected to the positive brush. So I reckon it's finding a DC earth through the stator and an AC supply from the same place. Nothing else makes sense. Bastards! And if I'm wrong, I want you to send me that alternator.
  9. This is standard politics at work, highlight your opponents flaws and expose them as unworthy. There's a fair bit of it in posts above. Boo! To nasty Nigel. What seems to have been missed is that it doesn't matter if Nigel Farage is the very son of Satan. His sole purpose is to stand there and hold a big sack open for people to throw protests into.
  10. So how could it be done. One side has proven it won't accept a result it doesn't like, do you really think leave would accept a remain win: when they have already won? Second referendum would only lead to a campaign for a third.
  11. Vince Cable has declared that the local election wins for the lib Dems proves that there is a majority for remain now.
  12. "Scared" is the point. It's just logical not to gamble with someone who has no stake to bring to the table, not cowardly. Because Cameron was dick enough to take the bet doesn't mean you are owed one in return. What is there to gain from another vote anyway? Once the precedent that if the losers winge long and loud enough they get a re run it would never end. You couldn't run a game of football on that basis let alone a democracy.
  13. Yes, but it would be a race between rotor and regulator as to which dies from over current first.
  14. Completely. Get the£100 on the table. I have nothing to lose and £100 to gain, you have nothing to gain and a 50% chance of losing your money. A gamble we both like. Bring it on. Would you like to nominate someone to do the coin tossing?
  15. Iskra. A bit left field but the only thing that fits the symptoms in my mind is the D+ and W connections reversed. The connections are made inside with flyleads soldered in place and if they have been assembled arse backwards....... Try the warning light connected to W and see what happens.
  16. Terrified of a referendum. Put £100 on the table, we'll toss a coin. Heads I win your£100, tails you get to keep it. Up for that? Or scared.
  17. Common problem it may well be but you presented it as universal, hence the rebuttal.
  18. I could have written that word for word.?
  19. There must have been some of our seriously pro remain interlocutors seeing this. Kudos to them for their discretion.
  20. The legal advice from the Advocate general? of the EU is that if article 50 were cancelled it would be as you were, same conditions. Still got things like the European army coming up though.
  21. I don't entirely understand what you are getting at. The whole sociopolitical landscape will be changed and the old truths will be up for review. Might as well have stuck with Charles I in 1642.
  22. I fear we may be heading for a mass disengagement with the whole democratic system, what this might do to electoral demographics I don't know. It's conceivable it may not happen of course but if brexit is to be stopped then it will be some alliance of the remain faction, whether a cross party alliance of principle or naked opposition opportunism or some alloy of the two and they really will be juggling with dynamite. It's thanks to Ivor the engine that I believed there were volcanoes in Wales! Draculus would make a good boat name.
  23. I'm a bit of a politics geek. I have always turned out at the polling station, on one occasion (the last GE) just to cast a spoiled ballot. I have worked elections, attended many counts as counting agent, agent and candidate (I won). But I am just too horrified at the potential ramifications to enjoy watching this. It's like being keen on surfing and being made to watch a shark attack.
