sad to say the seller comes from part of the world I come from - Kessingland nr Lowestoft, gives the description of "silly suffolk" a new meaning :cry:

Well - the blurb claims it to be "in full working order" - which is more than can be said for some far more shiny-looking rear-mechs, jammed solid and utterly immobile, currently tossed in a box in the corner of our garage.... (must get down to the recycling one of these days...)
Suppose that this room is a lift. The support breaks and down we go with ever-increasing velocity.
Let us pass the time by performing physical experiments...

The Standard's loss - £9.98m - comes after a recorded profit of £2.2m in the previous year, representing a £12m swing into the red.

and Trump praises Boris

"Trump described Johnson as “a very talented guy” for whom he had “a lot of respect”. He claimed he was not trying to pit Johnson against his host, but added: “I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. I think he’s got what it takes.”"

well from one foot in the mouth wallah to another that makes sense?

If I was religeous I would think we were in the "last days" when the beast/anti christ rules :shock:




"A Guardian/ICM poll released on Wednesday showed 53% of respondents disagreed with the idea Trump was doing a good job, and 63% disagreed with the statement that they would like to see a politician like him as British prime minister"

so sorry Boris you aint getting May's Job
