Just read somewhere online that you can always exchange old out of circulation paper notes by post directly to the Bank Of England ? Is that true I wonder , I thought that if you missed the deadline to spend, and once the banks had allowed you a few more weeks to pass them in , that that was that .

Can someone advise on what this problem maybe. The passenger door wont open from outside or inside and not even with the fob.
I have managed to take the door card off and can see that there is a cable that has come away and needs to be hooked to the actuator. Is this an easy fix, can some give me a price to do this job or advise on a decent mechanic that will?

Yep!

As soon as I heard the words "... A place where the sky is full of light and the air is charged with possibilities..." Birkenhead docks sprang to mind!

I'll believe it when I see it. So far, all that has been built is the tech's glorified industrial shed.

kids only get upset when they see themselves as being in very different situations to their peers . Maybe now , there are so many mixes of relationships plus male housekeepers and male nannies etc , that hardly anything is that unusual any more , so as long as their 2 parents are good loving ones, perhaps they wouldnt even blink.

Does strike me though that looking back trying to puzzle out family history in the far future is going to be a lot more challenging !!!

These are YOUR words and they are totally untrue. The most that can be said is that SOME people in SOME countries want out.


How can you say that my statement is "totally untrue" then go on to agree with what I said, I'm obviously missing your point?

"queue" implies more than one, I did not say "all" nor even "many".

IMHO, Poland would seriously consider leaving if it wasn't for the financial bribe. Greece would leave if they hadn't been taken over financially. Italy, maybe Spain, maybe France are somewhere around 50/50 but each have complex issues. Then there are Denmark, Sweden, Czechoslovakia and Hungary who aren't very happy with a number of issues. If Brexit succeeds then Ireland may find itself having to leave which is another reason the EU are appearing very awkward on the Brexit deal.

Of course countries want to join, the first thing that happens is loads of money gets thrown their way BUT the EU is running out of money to give away and Brexit will hit this badly. If the EU take on more countries they will no longer be able to pay the Polish bribe and Poland will leave, they will also have a problem bailing out Greece again and may have to forfeit Greece on favourable terms.

No doubt there are penalty clauses in the contract but if you try to enforce them then the contractor hits back on the "extra" charges:- work carried out that wasn't covered by the original contract. Many contracts are qoted at cost (or even a loss) to get the competitive edge but the contractor knows that there will be extras to make his profit from, unplanned work usually having a premium charge.

This practice was prevalent when public departments found a "cosy" contractor that they preferred to deal with which sometimes helped them use money from different budgets or different budget years. No idea if the above is still practiced but I can't see it having died out completely.

The streetworks overrun charges were to stop the practice of many utility companies digging holes then going on and doing other work sometimes leaving disruption behind them for many months.
