Setting aside any in or out bias. I am wondering if Mays plan will actually be voted down, all the talk about the maths and numbers doth speak to loudly me think  and I wonder if members are saying they will vote it down but actually have no plans to. Or is number 10 over playing the against vote so that when there is an against vote - but not as overwhelming as being predicted it can be used as- and played as a victory.The problem with politicians is that they are all politicians.I think it should be like jury service and you are called up as a citizen and member of the public to do a stint in the commons.Look out the white paper on Fazers paying no road tax or insurance and free petrol when I do my turn.And then after that I will get a very nice rotating door job at Yam __________________ oh my god I have become an actual politician  :eek

So how does the scam work?. If the cheque clears after the 2/3 days he estimates before the bike is collected, you have he's money and he can't get the cash back can he?
Yes banks will bounce fake - dodgy cheques. Not sure now if the scam will work as well because banks now are scanning cheques and sending to the issuing bank instead of posting so if it is a dodgy one it is found out in a matter of hours ????? as opposed to days (the old 2-3) not sure about the hours but certinlay much much quicker than before.

The threat of scams and the time wasters over the years with my cars I have taken the hit and traded in. Cant be arsed now, might be different when it comes to the bike but it will have to be cash

I also have some miliput in the shed but have the terracotta one that I used to hide/ fill some holes in some brick work.
I can recomend JB weld High Heat version, I used it to repair a hole in my collector box area on the Fazer and so far it has kept in place after other stuff fell off very quickly which was Chemical metal-- fell off and Gun Gum --- fell off.This stuff, same deal as miliput two part putty

 "The likes of your Manchester's Leicester's"
 "Yeah you've got your Keegan' s and lineker's"

Me to - love construction. About 30 years ago I did a night course on bricklaying, it was for big diyers like myself who wanted to learn some basics and since then have done loads and loads of brick projects, the first one was demolishing and rebuilding some out houses at the back of a terrace house to go from a loo/ coal shed/shed to one large shed.
Interesting about the DPM between the new and old, a few years ago we had an extension built and were made to have the front of it 1/2 brick back which then made it as you describe so that 1/2 original brick then becomes the internal wall further on and we did not have any cut and DPM as you describe. I would of worried that the front of the house would fall off if it was cut  :lol It was signed off with regs all along the way and I was there every time.
       
I chose size bricks that matched the original and they were toothed in. But because it was set back 1/2 brick maybe we could of got away with miss matching heights (don't know)
The nasty bricks in the picture are from the previous Lord of Sharp Halls extension effort which are now hidden by the new stable block  ;) .

VED or road tax as we like to call it....why don't they just add a few pence to fuel then we wouldn't get an annual bill, it would catch all the dodgers and also get some income from all the foreign tourists!
And, those of us who only do a few miles a year would pay proportionally for the use of the roads.


Agreed - Richard Turpin - for chancellor of the exchequer will get my vote.

Yeah Metric gauge is tighter than Imperial by 1.2mm per course of bricks, that is why building an extension on a imperial gauged house with metric bricks when they were the standard was a bastard as you either, lost gauge again the main house or you ended up with large bed joint to keep up. Seeing as you new brickwork bonded/tied into the original you ended up with large bed joints , of course on a complete new build it was not a problem.

On an old building with new brick extension and if you are not bonding/tieing in which forces you to keep up. Which looks uglier - deeper beds to try and keep up or mismatched brick to brick.

You can't vote either in or out the unelected members of The European Commission who propose the legislation that the MEP's vote on.
You can't vote for the Civil Servants who propose, write and implement the UK legislation that UK members of Parliament vote on. Who do you think prepared the Withdrawal Bill? MPs just sign stuff off.
That's another thing, I have been watching the BBC doc about the foreign office and got the distinct that all the civil servants - permanent secretaries - ambassadors, all want to stay in the EU and therefore maintain the status quo keeping themselves in a cushy little job with nice pensions. All out of the direct gaze of the public.
Politicians however need to have one eye on what the voters think

Here is a good indication of how good ACF50 is. These are the ends of my mini scaffold tower I cleaned them up well over 2 years ago and on one stem I smeared ACF50 and I left the others. Can you spot the one that had the ACF50  :lol They are stored in a dry area and so are not subject to rain washing off any ACF50 but the area does get damp.


Hey! Surely that is not a wall at 'Sharp Manor' not exactly period is it, iron rubbed in mortar joints is modern, it became popular in the sixties,.
I was expecting lime mortar with pencil joints, big stone arches with massive key stone bricks, tiled Kneelers at the bases of all the gables.
Sharpie have you been bullshitting us as to your heritage.  :rolleyes
Oh! The AFC50 has done a great job of protecting the tower.  :thumbup
Its the storage mews - and they are metric bricks - you of all people should of spotted that one.

Ok, I never opened the 9mm nut packet so never realised. Thanks all.
Have a search on here I think there was one posted a couple of years ago- my bikes asleep now and I don't want to wake it up otherwise it will want to go out and it looks a bit damp out there


I would love to show you my nuts.
I hope I do not get PENALISED for this. :eek
That is a good side by side comparison. You got a very shiny nut compared to mine - is it a genuine yam one

Here is my prediction.May's deal will be voted down.
Borris will mount a leadership challenge.
Nigel Farage will become a Lord/knight and enter the government.Borris wins the PM after saying he will call for an election.Labour will agree to one being called
Conservative party will win with the help of Lord Farage.No deal Brexit.We negotiate into the parts of the EU we want from a position of strength.

What is the aim of all of these Goebbels-esk propaganda cartoons is it just to name call, wind up, insult every leave voter. Surely the remainers efforts would be better spent trying to gather support for their cause and even try to reverse leave voters opinions rather than mocking the leavers, all you are doing is entrenching the leavers views.

Never said they were anything to do with the EU - no wonder you didn't understand what the bus said.

But this is a Brexit thread, so you did a thread  :hijack    and I understood the bus lie perfectly  :lol

I was going to make a point about laws - EU and in general that it seems only the UK that takes them and abides by them, Doesn't matter EU - or local, if the French don't like em -------they dot get em.The UK has to do what they are told whilst the French do what they like. The French farmers just the same - as is the fishermen.

No of course not  I was asked for a law I did not like and I gave one.

There are lots of UK laws I'm not too keen on!
Agreed - BUT you can vote out the politicians who made them in this country.

Daylight Running Lights. If the EU make them compulsory for new cars,  do you really think we wouldn't if we left the EU? Are motor manufacturers really going to the expense of  making special editions without them just for the UK?
No of course not  :rolleyes I was asked for a law I did not like and I gave one.
