    New Flop Gear presenters

    Humour, wit and entertainment value. They've got none of those. Top Gear was finished long before Clarkson, Hammond and May left.

    Passing Out

    Congratulations. You must be proud as punch, and rightly so. Well done that lad! .

    10/22 barrel band

    You don't need the barrel band. It doesn't do anything.

    Van won't start

    Nope. Made no difference. Temporarily swapped it for another. No luck. Bump starts fine though. I'll tell her to park on a hill.

    Van won't start

    Not sure. Could bump it and take it to the garage, but she's been nagging me for a new one for a while so she might get her wish.

    Van won't start

    It's not the battery. Won't jump and can't get to the starter to persuade it with a hammer.

    Van won't start

    Done that. It drops from 12.5v to 11.5v. Waiting for someone with a car to get home soon to try jumping it.

    Van won't start

    There wasn't an issue last week. It just went from starting perfectly to not starting at all.

    Van won't start

    Surely it wouldn't have 14 volts with the engine off? I'll try and jump it and see if that works.

    Van won't start

    Just got back from a few days away and the wife's dog bus (old vauxhall combo) won't start. I've checked the battery with my multimeter (12.5v), checked the starter motor fuse (ok) and relay (makes one click when turning the key). I swapped the relays around to make sure that wasn't the problem and swapped them back again. When you turn the key to the first position all the dash lights come on as usual. When you turn the key to the start position the lights don't go dim, just the click from the relay. There was no issue like slow starting last weekend, so I'm a bit stumped. Surely if it was the starter itself the lights would dim when trying to start? Any ideas? Ta.

    I don't think there's anyone on that panel who would "phwoar" over a female in any state of undress. I like trying to work out who these "celebrities" are. I don't recognise any of the names and even when my wife explains who they are, I'm still none the wiser.

    They should have a 3rd box for the postman to tick after "Postage Payable" and "Duty Payable" of "Diabolical Liberty Tax."

    I ordered a picatinny rail for my CZ from the U.S. It was quite a bit cheaper than buying one from the U.K. Postage was dear though at $26 odd, but overall still cheaper than buying one here. Imagine my joy to find the postman has posted a card saying they couldn't deliver it because it had duty to pay on it. Plus an £8 handling charge for not delivering it. My understanding is that no duty was payable under £135, so this must be VAT as it was around 20%, a bit more actually. So now it would have been cheaper to buy said item from the U.K and had it delivered next day instead of over a week. That'll teach me. Does everyone get fleeced like this or was I just unlucky?

    I'm more worried about the predicted caviar shortage after Brexit. I don't know how I'd get by without my cold fishy jellified eggs. Just a thought - doesn't caviar come from Russia that also isn't in the EU?

    Police chief. ?

    I see that awful creature Cressida **** has jumped to his defence. No doubt she would do exactly the same. The thin blue line just got thinner.
