Did everyone remember to change their clocks last night? Here's a handy guide for those who forgot:-

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I saw this on a mates feed on Facebonk, but restrained myself from commenting simply because he’s a raving JC fan. I’ll happily comment here though..... it’s a bit unbalanced, there’s no other mainstream parties mentioned, particularly JCs lot for whom I’d probably say ‘Back to the Bankruptcy court, Marxist cap in hand’.

Well of course it is unbalanced, these things generally are!

Yes, but the batteries are knackered and too expensive to replace. The clean, green batteries are also far too toxic for anyone to touch in the EU so it will have to live out its life on the moors in the shadow of the wind turbines.

At least it's not a Bentley. Seems they're not too happy with Brexit either (along with Rolls Royce, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and pretty much every other manufacturer):

Bentleys have been made/assembled in Dresden in the early 00s in the Phaeton factory.

The U.K. factory is in Crewe, Cheshire - so it doesn't really matter!
