Interesting article for our friends north of the border..
And the band played believe it if you like.
Written by William Ross (not the real one - a nom de plume) for Brexit Central.
The vote leave campaign was based on lies. Inevitably, these lies have consequences,some of which have already come to fruition and there are many more to come if we actually leave. Somebody has gone to the bother of listing them here.

Please take the trouble to read a few of them.
The only justification that Brexiteers have now is that we voted for it so we must go through with it even though it has proved and will prove to be disastrous.
What's undemocratic about asking for a vote now that we know better?

There were also a lot of lies ( threats ? ) on leave side based on totally biased forecasts of economy and other things spouted by remain / establishment ( same thing for all intents and purposes ).  Also stupid remain claims that if UK started using a a points based system like the Australian one that immigration would increase this was solely based on the fact that Australia had higher immigration than UK - but remain camp chose to ignore the fact that Australia is a massive country with only around 25 million people and they tweaked their immigration points to get more immigrants, but based on education and financial criteria.  I went through the Aussie system and believe me they want to know everything about you ( and at that time you still had to attend an interview at Australia house in London before final approval, and you had to go to their 'approved' doctors for medical checks and chest X-rays, not your own GP ),  including fingerprints and a statement from UK police that you do not have a criminal record ( it used to be compulsory to get into Oz but then for some reason they don't want criminals any more ), far better than having to allow every Van, Hans or  Alexandru in because they are citizens of another EU member country.

1. You assume other people did not know what they were voting for. Never underestimate people.

2. Why implement the result of a second referendum when the first referendum hasn't been? We could add the second referendum result to the list of undemocratic votes whoever won - Leave or Remain. And why not have a referendum on a referendum. What's undemocratic about that?

Reading all this, it is easy to forget that 100 years ago our grandparents administered a third of the world, Great Britain was the world's largest economy and we policed the world's oceans.

Our generation cannot even govern ourselves and are more interested in Love Island and "celebrities" than anything beyond our shores.

We can't blame "the government". People get the government they deserve. We can only blame ourselves.

We all have to be very ashamed of our complacency.

I was reading what car, in the dentists yesterday (the May and June editions, no less), and a guy was asking about the need to have his car serviced by Honda to qualify for the warranty. He was told that under the Block Exemption Regulations he didn't need to, but those don't cover extended warranties. Only the manufacturer's warranty on a new car. For extended warranties it advises you check the small print or you could lose out on a warranty claim.

Thanks for the warning. Their FAQ says "You must have your vehicle serviced at a VAT registered garage in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. Please ensure that you retain the receipted invoice as this will be required should you make a claim." I intend to carry on having it serviced at Vertu anyway.

https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/staggers/2018/01/it-s-time-accept-labour-manifesto-you-voted-promised-hard-brexit

Labour party has been totally disingenuous on their brexit policy, they thought they could play both ends against the middle and get votes from leavers and remainers - Corby said Conservatives were split, but Labour was in a thousand pieces.

Tony B Liar gave away the rebate Maggie negotiated and pushed through massive changes to EU constitution that had already been rejected in referendums by Holland and France - no way was he going to hold a UK referendum on the treaty he waved through.  B Liar was also in favour of joining Euro but was overruled by people who had more than 2 brain cells,  we dodged a bullet there but no thanks the B  Liar who was dead set on UK being more ruled by EU, ( and still is, the bloke has an ego bigger than the planet and a skin like a Rhino, but the brain of an educationally challenged  gnat ).

Jocko and Culzean you're both regular posters with knowledge I respect. I like to tinker and get things running as well as I possibly can, which is why every so often I keep considering doing the adjustment. Part of my OCD wants to follow everything Honda has advised in the service schedule. You're both recommending not to bother so I'm going to sit on my hands and ignore them for now!

Let me tell you a story of a good deed a bloke I used to work with did, his mate had an oil pressure sensor that was playing up and work colleague said he would fix it

The sensor was stuck in the block and broke off while trying to unscrew it.

The body had to be drilled out, which left metal in the thread.

The colleague had to buy a suitable tap to clean out the fine thread, being very careful ( coat the tap with grease to trap any swarf ) but the tap went in too far and broke through the back of the oil gallery.

Now the engine had to come out of the car, stripped down and sent to a specialist welder to fill in the hole in the oil gallery.

Engine reassembled and sensor fitted engine fitted back into car.

A 15 minute job turned into a week and lots of s

That is what I think about when contemplating a job on a car that is not really necessary one thing really can lead to another you could say that the oil sensor playing up could have been ignored as long as the oil was checked regularly, but having started the job things rapidly escalated, I believe it is called Murphys Law.

If the car is running well - leave stuff alone...

Both Alistair Campbell and his partner in crime Tony B Liar are sleezebags of the highest ( or should that be lowest ) calibre, If either of them told me my lawn was green I would have to go and check it myself..
