Jim,
Where do you get the idea that people voted for brexit for financial gain, you have no idea why they voted but I doubt any of them expected to be better off. I certainly expected a hard time for many years as the full spite of the EU was brought to bear on the country that dared to vote to leave, the great and the good of EU are so used to getting their own way with no democratic input from members we expected them to behave like a spoilt spiteful child, and we were not disappointed....the big problem has been Theresa May treating brexit as a damage limitation exercise instead of a massive opportunity, EU walked all over her, knowing that she was too timid to walk away from talks.

Trust me, Scotland will have a much harder time if they get independence or seek to try to rejoin EU when rest of UK has left.  You are being sold a dream by the SNP, they have no plans for currency or anything else, just keep spouting rubbish with their fingers crossed.   It has not been long since Yorkshire had a bigger GDP than Scotland ... What chance would you give Yorkshire being independent from Uk ?

As for Ireland having different currencies, just remind me which one they are using now, and Scotland say they won't use that one LOL.. as if they will have a choice....

Honda change for manual box ( an I-shift is an automated manual box ) is 70,000 miles.

I would change every fluid in the car, engine, gearbox, brake fluid and if it has aircon fitted the lack of use may have killed it..

As you already have new fresh oil. I would change it.
The original oil could be contaminated by condensation and old age.

150 miles in 12 month's is terrible.

Change engine oil as well.

@JimSh

I cannot figure how you can want another indyref after seeing the problems with brexit, Scotland does not even have its own currency, most of its trade is with UK.   If the UK which is 5th largest economy will have trouble signing trade deals imagine Scotland on its own,  EU rules say you would have to sign up to ERM, have your own currency and economy stable and within their inflation and debt rules for two years and then into the Euro you go, a new member would not get a choice but it is nowhere near a done deal that you could join the EU, This would set a bad precedent for places like Catalonia, so Spain at least would veto your membership.


I would rather the rest of UK revoked Article 50 than Scotland be forced to seek independence to escape the consequences of Brexit.
With regard to the currency, Ireland has changed currency more than once. Why not Scotland?
The SNP have not decided yet on the policy regarding currency. As with most things they are waiting to see what happens with Brexit.

@JimSh



People did not vote to leave EU only if no damage to economy, they know you cannot put a price on sovereignty - your own Walter Scott put his finger on it ' breathes there a man with soul so dead he never to himself has said, this is my land my own country' - something the EU does not understand.

People were incentivised to vote for Brexit by the prospect of financial gain.(The only people to gain will be disaster capitalists.)
They will lose sovereignty with each deal made post Brexit.

Extract from the Highway Code:

Rule 110
Flashing headlights. Only flash your headlights to let other road users know that you are there. Do not flash your headlights to convey any other message or intimidate other road users.

Rule 111
Never assume that flashing headlights is a signal inviting you to proceed. Use your own judgement and proceed carefully.

I still treat green traffic lights as a 'give way ) sign and have a quick look each way.
I do that as well. I am very careful at lights as many drivers are happy to ignore the amber and as a consequence often catch the red.
Like the old joke:

Two guys are driving. Well, actually, only one is driving, the other is riding. Anyway, they're driving along, and they come to a red light. The driver blows right through it! The passenger says "What the hell, man?! That was a red light!" The driver waves him off, saying, "My brother drives like this!"
So they drive a little while longer, and they come to another red light. Once again, the driver blows right through it. The passenger freaks out. The driver says, "Man, relax, alright? My brother always drives like this, and he's never been in one accident."
A few moments later, they come to a green light, and they stop. The passenger looks at the driver and says, "What the hell are you stopping now for?"
"Well, my brother might be coming the other way!"


One of my bugbears are drivers that block roundabouts, especially now that road designers love installing light controlled crossings immediately on the exit from roundabouts.

Surely the only guilty party is the unfortunate on-coming motorist, whether or not anyone was flashed it is up to the unfortunate on-coming motorist who hit the cyclist to ensure they can see on-coming vehicles.

I was always told not to trust anyone intentions until they actually do them, predominately at junctions and roundabouts. I'E Look first before you change directions, and not on the guidance of a fellow motorist.

I would deem the "flasher" not responsible at all.

In my opinion :)

I'm not saying that the on-coming motorist got off, just that the "flasher" was also prosecuted.  It was several years ago so I'm not sure I can find any details but it happened in Dorset, possibly the Weymouth area as that is where my friend was stationed.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / More Torque
« Last post by coffeecup on May 23, 2019, 04:30:49 PM »
I love my Jazz, like most on here, however i would like a bit more Torque lower down. I have read only a couple of mods from usually US fit cars and was wondering if anyone has done any 'tweeks' or know of anyone who has?

Seems like re-mapping/new exhaust and filter do wonders. And no, i don't really want a faster model, i like the Jazz, and as it was a gift from the mother-in-law I don't mind spending a bit.
