    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    I must have missed the bit where the publican is demanding an end to NHS palliative care. What was Starmers reply? Hopefully the labour leader made a passionate speech on the vast waste of resources currently being spaffed on NHS X that could be better spent elsewhere.

    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    The angry publican does mention Office of National Statistics figures which do confirm the mean (average) age in years of those who died due to Covid-19 being higher than the mean age in years of those who died involving Covid-19. I am sure there are also stats for mean ages of death prior to...

    The transition period is the term used i believe. The trade deal agreed in late December 2020 has still not been ratified by the EU despite being extended once already. The EU - UK post brexit trade deal as it stands today is still not legally binding...

    Sorry i do not personally know the landlord of the pub in Bath to offer an explanation. Keir Starmer though eh. Leader of the "Labour" party. Who would have guessed he would be so lacking in empathy for the plight of the common man. And if the landlord had served Starmer would he have paid for...

    April 2020 - NHS to benefit from £13.4 billion debt write off. More than 100 NHS hospitals to be rid of historic debt, freeing them up to invest in maintaining vital services and longer-term infrastructure improvements...

    Fascinating use of multiple negatives in your post (implied connection, unrelated figures, pseudo-logic, disparate figures) which i suppose means you disagree, with emphases (the plural of emphasis), with the landlords train of thought. It does appear however that Keir Starmer is completely...

    Keir Starmer V the pub landlord who pointed out the average age of those who have died of Covid-19 (82 years and 2 months) is more than the average age of death normally in the UK (81 years). https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-56802020

    NHS lateral flow staff testing results searching for these asymptomatic cases are not headline news though because they are not finding a significant proportion of asymptomatic cases.

    new OS front wing for E430 2000 s210 estate

    The w/s210 facelift came in 1998 i think. Easy to spot the difference in front wing designs by the lack of indicator hole on facelift cars like your e430 (side indicator in wing mirror housing instead).

    Alloy wheels for Mercedes 190E

    The lower the ET or offset number the further outwards the wheels will be in the wheelarch. Then you have to factor in the rims width (stock 5.5J) and of course the tyres (stock 185 65 15). Sorry not aware of any tool where you can work out what will or will not fit a w201. Anything lower than...

    Alloy wheels for Mercedes 190E

    I have steel wheels from a w210 on my w201 190d. Size is 6.5 X 15 ET 37 and they fill the arches nicely compared with the stock 5.5 X 15 inch steels (ET 48?) without rubbing front or rear (on standard suspension). Hope this helps.
