    Yeah but it is interesting to see what happens to the car after you have sold it on...

    Alan Ball, Hilda Baker, Frank Finlay all famous Farnworthians. My dad always told me Sir Frank Whittle was from Farnworth but it's not true. Another in the string of lies he told me when I was a nipper, like Spaghetti is made from worms (still can't eat it), and the long flower beds in the roads around the Town Hall are giant's graves (still can't walk on them or even step over them).

    Slightly off topic. A couple of years ago I was going to buy a used car at a showroom. I asked if they could and new one year MOT on it. They agreed. I came back in the afternoon and magically they had got a new MOT from a garage five miles away without putting any extra mileage on the odometer. I did not buy it.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    And the CTA, which is gonna drive a huge hole in the Brexit hard border talks cos it trumps the EU, even though it has no basis in law, it's part of the fabric, makes it even harder to get rid off...

    Geographically, yes, but it's a whole different world 'in the North'.

    And with no available MOT check, just like the rest of Ireland and Germany.

    Actually, I had a lovely drive through Fermanagh yesterday. Pity it was pissing down as it looked stunningly beautiful. Will have to return.
