Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Scuff marks on plastic interior
« Last post by MartinJG on July 16, 2019, 11:31:05 PM »
Sorry about the vagueness on the original post. Must be heatstroke. Or something.

As usual, there are loads of products out there which claim to fix the scuff marks but I would be happier following recs from folk on the board who have actually had a successful result.

I hope the photo is OK. Had to crop it and upload. Steep learning curve although it seems quite straightforward.

The Fatherlands biggest bank on verge of collapse..

It's all OK - now that Germany is official master of the EU. (Didn't we fight two wars to prevent that?).

Seriously though - it's been a long time coming. It will interesting to see how it all turns out.

Grieve and his cronies admit they can't stop a 'clean break Brexit' ( also called no deal by some doomsayers) .

Neither your Guido Fox reference nor the Daily Express go quite that far although when push comes to shove he's going to find it difficult to find enough Tories with sufficient integrity.

I think he was quite explicit in both the Guido Fawkes clip and the Guardian article you quote. What's not to understand?

"Let's just continue to ignore the 17.4 million people for my own one selfish opinion".

Democratic or what?

Why does he not resign?

It is not his privilege to hold the country tor ransom.

He is trying to do what is best for his country.
He will find it difficult to find enough other politicians who will put country before party or self advancement.

In his personal opinion but not in the opinion of the majority of the country who bothered to vote (72.2% of 46,500,001 eligible to vote). I guess he was the 1.

What's best for his (and my) country is to respect democracy.

French educated. French mother. Sounds like self interest to me. I bet he has lots of assets in France too. He comes from a rather privileged background but I suppose that's OK too.

He is the Tory MP for Beaconsfield (an area of great affluence*) and was the first Remaim MP to be deselected.

He kept his seat as he was given a reprieve from deselection by his local party - but warned against continuing to campaign against Brexit.

He took that to heart.

Seems like a serial abuser of people's trust. "Putting country before party" - Yeah.

*Ex Wikipedia: "Beaconsfield was named 'Britain's richest town' (based on an average house price of £684,474) by The Daily Telegraph in 2008.[8] In 2011 the post town had the highest proportion in the UK of £1 million-plus homes for sale (at 47%, compared to 3.5% nationally).[9] In 2011, Burkes Road was named as the second most expensive road in the country outside London.[10]". Nothing has changed.

Contacted their London Facebook site and I was told I would have email link within 50 minutes. That was five and a half hours ago. It's a scam. Don't buy a manual from Manual4You.

That is the problem, Brexit has been treated by Theresa May and establishment as damage limitation instead of a massive opportunity for our country....
Massive opportunity for disaster capitalists, hedge fund managers and those with money stashed in offshore tax havens.
The very rich win. Everybody else suffers.
aye, Brexit is only a massive opportunity for a tiny % of UK population - bad news for over 99% of us - insane to be spending £Billions to make UK worse off for decades if not forever just so a few can cash in

Absolutely. It still baffles me how these people have managed to convince 37% of the electorate that this is the answer to the country's problems.

It's certainly the wealthy's answer to the EU's Anti Tax Avoidance Directive.

I thought it was 52% of those who voted.

What is the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive?
a pan-EU directive that members are expected to adopt than puts an end to big companies & the wealthy paying zero tax on their operations/income

Is there any more detail than that?

If big companies would not be paying zero tax, why are they so keen for UK to stay in EU and not leave and pay zero tax? Have you got that quite right?

Is this what you are referring to?

https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/business/company-tax/anti-tax-avoidance-package/anti-tax-avoidance-directive_en

If so, the effective date for this has already past  (1 January 2019 if I read correctly).

Are you referring to something else as well?

The large multi national companies just love the EU, it allows them to do deals on tax, and they only have to lobby and bribe commission members in Brussels, they love the fact they don't have to talk to and pass brown envelopes to many people scattered around Europe, they are all to be found in Brussels.
