    Absolute con - I bought one for my office just to see what they were about but sent it back. Can't fathom why they are still going, presumably snazzy marketing. The inner parts of the branches are that green astroturf stuff - pretty sure someone's having a laugh.

    This worrying over diesel emissions is all by the by surely when you consider this.

    What I don't understand with this branding/reliability thing, people always say "Japanese cars are reliable" but nowadays they are Japanese in name only. Maybe they were designed there, but most Jap cars are built in Brazil/Finland/Far East - but outside of Japan. More BMWs sold in the UK are IIRC built in the USA than in Germany. Yet American branded cars , most of which are built in America, are shyte.
    I never really understood why it's thus. You wouldn't buy a Brazilian car because it'd be a shitter, but for some reason a Japanese car built in Brazil is really reliable.

    I think Suzuki have an excellent range of cars at the moment. If I was in the market for a brand new car I'd want try out an Ignis for starters. I also really like the new Jimny - retro styling like 4x4s of old but executed very well.

    Christmas is actually a good time of year for many migrants, they can do time and a half / double or even triple-time on Boxing Day etc. Where I used to work in a shopping centre the ethnic (PC?) members of staff booked out those dates very quickly indeed.

    I can't see how she can stay now. She has no support from anyone, even Loathsome and Gove must see the wood for the trees now.

    The fact she has bottled it before going to a vote that she knew she would lose, shows her only interest is in keeping herself in the job. I am worried it is becoming increasingly likely that she will need to be forcefully removed from number 10.
     
    She could have gone back to Brussels on Wednesday after her deal had been rejected and would have been in a better negotiating position. Not that we need to negotiate, but that's just elementary stuff. Who on earth is advising her, and why aren't MPs handing in their letters? So many questions...

    Well as a significant number of recipients will not be Christian, thus not celebrating Christmas, I’m not convinced that it matters that it will be implemented just before Christmas.

    I don't eat meat and rarely eat fish but that doesn't mean others will also stop. For as long as there are people in this country many of them will choose to eat fish so why shouldn't they be fished from our waters by us rather than the French.

    spunko got a reaction from Carl Fimble in Username change poll/feedback   
    I have not removed the ability for users to change their usernames , so basically any user can change theirs whenever they want.
    The problem with this for me, is that I get confused when people do change their usernames, and I'm sure others do too. So I've added a poll. My ideas are:
    1. To NOT allow users to change their usernames at all,
    2. To allow users to change their username whenever they want (eg carry on as now), or
    3. To allow users to change their usernames whenever they want, but to make a new rule: they need to add "Formerly XXXXX" for 30 days as their secondary title. EG where it says "Advanced Member" instead it will say "Formerly spunko".
    Or if anyone has any other suggestions....

    There seems to be some thread crossing with this and the Treason May one, if everyone would please use the other thread for discussing the traitor and this thread for yesterday/future marches otherwise it gets confusing.

    I keep seeing these highly-rated comments on the DM website about how Brexiteers will run riot if MPs stop Brexit, and indeed that many MPs are terrified of the people rioting -- but, anyone else think both of these are bollocks? Or am I missing something?

    I know it sounds a bit 'first world problems' but 20 acres would be such a ballache to maintain. You'd either need to pay a farmer £50 a week to mow it all, or lease it to a local farmer IMO.

    I like Nigel, but it was utterly selfish and reckless of him to walk away from Ukip a week before the biggest Brexit stitch up of all is voted on. He could have stood down this Wednesday.

    M3 / M25 junctions are still shyte even after ~2 years of roadworks to widen the road. And who the hell designed the signage when going north towards London, to join the M25 S. I drive that route regularly and often come close to missing it, and a lot of other people end up cutting in front of me too (can't blame them). When you need to get in the correct lane to join the  busiest motorway in the UK they should give you more than 200 yards of warning, pricks.
