  1. Thanks. Tried that site already. Might be a good place if we have to replace the entire mechanism.
  2. The handle has come off my French window. Disassembly shows that the reason it has come off is that 2 threaded widgets have snapped which allowed the handle to be secured to the drive gear locking mechanism. Photos of the broken widgets: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8I2HNFd59WIdXotWERGdUxPZzQ/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8I2HNFd59WIUG93UHpPV2FXTGc/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8I2HNFd59WISXBMOFJLVnk4YlE/view?usp=sharing I have tried to track down compatible widgets to replace them but it's very hard work not even knowing what they're called. Googling the part number, 8-621 didn't get me anywhere. If anybody knows what these widgets are called and better still where I can get them I'd appreciate a tip. Thanks.
  3. Back in the real world. Latest yougov poll has literally twice as many people planning to vote Conservative as Labour. I'm not kidding it's actually a factor of 2: 48% to 24% http://ukpollingreport.co.uk/blog/archives/category/voting-intention ICM polls from the day before indicate 44% to 26. If the Conservatives actually get 50% of the vote, will their democratic right to govern and to implement Brexit finally be recognised. I'm sure there will be some excuse to declare them illegitimate. Tough though. Best start working on it now.
  4. I made no such claim. Yet again you pretend I said something I did not. Your deceit knows no bounds.
  5. Yours in fact. He was being genuine. You really should not defend him. He's unworthy. ---------- Post added 20-04-2017 at 17:51 ---------- It's not a new trick. Redefine something and then suggest that your opponents are stupid for not using your definition. The Emperor has no clothes.
  6. Liar. A quick check of the relevant posts will reveal to any interested party that you lied about what Churchill had said about democracy and then tried to weasel out of it.
  7. Which is why I make allowances. But there are limits.
  8. Not directly. But all economic activity which contributes to the value of the economy overall has value which ultimately feeds through to jobs.
  9. That's not the point he was making. Re-read post 335.
  10. Not sure what good this does you. I can still counter your posts but you can't counter mine. I have got a bit tired tolerating the rage of the remainers on here. I do sympathise with those who suffered personal losses on account of Brexit, and those who have suffered abuse from Brexit-supporting thugs. Find a post from me along the lines of "Oh look at the suffering of the people of the EU and rejoice". Or "Look at this isolated anecdote of a thing that may happen and may be good, Brexit is the cause". ---------- Post added 20-04-2017 at 14:44 ---------- The UK does want a constructive relationship. Just not a political union. I've answered this about a thousand times already.
  11. But the shares are ultimately shares in real companies. And moving their ownership around is economically useful. Without it, the economy would be smaller and everybody would be worse off.
  12. None of you last 3 posters were going to vote for May anyway.
  13. It seems to me that you've taken to evading questions yourself with posts along the lines of "I'm indifferent" or "I'm enjoying watching the (imaginary) suffering of my victorious opponents". Now you're getting emotional because I've called you on it. Either engage in the debate or don't. Jumping out with a comment when you feel like it and then answering with "I'm indifferent" or other such nonsense when challenged is not cricket. You're clearly not indifferent. It's just something you've taken to saying as a tactic. Thank you for the abuse by the way. It's always nice to have the moral high ground handed to one on a silver platter.
  14. Per transaction, an absolutely tiny fraction of 1. In total, absolutely millions. You might want to look some of this stuff up. You're very quick with the whole "you don't agree with me therefore you've misunderstood" line. That's going to cause problems for you if you display wilful ignorance of that which you can easily learn.
  15. Now you see I promised so despite your own attitude I shall try to explain this without being insulting. Every time the rich make money it gets taxed. That tax money pays for our public services. Every time rich spend money they spend it on goods and services which poorer people are paid to provide. Every time the rich invest money in order to gain more, they employ people in the process. Anybody who has a job in the private sector needs the rich, anybody who consumes government services needs the rich, and anybody who works for the government needs the rich. Do try not to hate them. You need them in order to live. Now the only way a decent society can function is with progressive taxation. So I want the rich to pay lots of tax too. But if you're setting tax policy out of resentment and jealousy then you'll drive them away, or deter them from doing all the rich people things that your exchequer and your economy need them to do. They'll be fine by the way. They'll just leave or retire. But you'll lose jobs and tax revenue like you wouldn't believe and everybody else will suffer like you've never seen. Please read this thoroughly and think seriously about it before you run around advocating all this "pipe squeak" rubbish as you'll achieve the exact opposite of your goals.
  16. Well I take such things seriously coming from you, so I shall take some time to review my own posts and reconsider my attitude.
  17. That does not contain an insult to anybody's intelligence and this and other threads and absolutely full of me making a case for Brexit. I reserve the right to fight back when insulted. If you want to treat my clarification as backtracking then you go ahead, but I don't think you'll fare well if you're held to the same standard.
  18. ¿ Yes but at least the super-rich would suffer. I mean for a few weeks whilst they arranged to become residents of another country and pay taxes there. ¿
  19. Every other post from you contains an insult to your opponent's intelligence. If you were capable of making a case you would. As it is beyond you, this is all you have.
  20. I do understand. Perhaps if enough attention is drawn to the issue of bigoted thugs over the next several weeks, it will become an election issue and action will finally be taken. It is certainly something I shall raise at every opportunity.
  21. I understand your ideas perfectly. Whatever gets you the "right" result is what you support. Hack on some weak democratic justification and off you go.
