    One vote would not have a made a difference. Half a dozen would. Smacks of desperation

    Until a couple of days ago, I thought pairing was what you did with your socks before you put them away https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/jul/19/tory-whip-julian-smith-urged-to-explain-pairing-breach-that-caused-serious-damage

    Not sure which of May's proposals she has reversed today she doesnt even seem to get enough support for a vote of no confidence. I think she is simply working the wrong way round. She needs to get a deal that will make it worth staying in. And it must satisfy those who voted to leave.

    Trump is a populist. You just have to appear to be able to get stuff done. You say you will put your own country's interests first and slag off immigrants. Sound familiar?

    Our mate Trump looks like killing a UK/US deal if we opt for soft Brexit. Having watched the programme about him last night, I hope HRH has the silver locked away

    I don't imagine anyone realistically expected us to get the same terms when we are outside the EU as we do in it. The trade off was that we would get control of immigration and sovereignty. But from what I can see, Mrs May intends to concede on both points. And we get no shout on how things are run. That doesn't sound a lot like the best deal for Britain to me. I must be missing something

    Imagine what we would be saying if it were the French who were leaving instead of us: 'You can't have your gateau and eat it' and 'On your vélo ' spring to mind. So it is hardly surprising that the rest of Europe says 'it is your mess, you sort it'. Even Trump has the nerve to say we are 'in turmoil'.

    Remainers didn't want it anyway and the resignations of Davis and Johnson would seem to indicate that those strongly in favour are not happy with the planned way forward either. Of course, I could be wrong. The comment is hardly presumptuous when it includes the word 'seems'

    A concise and accurate assessment. If the 12 point plan is the best we can hope for, I shudder to think what we will actually end up with. Nobody seems to be getting what they wanted and thought they were voting for.

    The Daily Express on May's 12 point plan: ''On the subject of immigration, the plan is for a 'mobility framework so that UK and EU citizens can continue to travel to each other’s territories, and apply for study and work'. Contributions to the EU’s financial coffers will end with the UK’s membership, but that doesn’t mean Britain will not be sending any money to Brussels after Brexit. While not wanting to be in the or a customs union with the EU, Mrs May has decided upon a “Facilitated customs Arrangement” to remove the need for customs checks and controls between the UK and EU. Mrs May has pledged to maintain a “common rulebook” for food, farm, and industrial goods, which would mean the UK would align with EU regulation as well as commit to an “ongoing harmonisation” of the bloc’s rules'' I read that as free movement stays, we continue to pay Brussels, we are de facto still in the customs union, and we continue to accept the laws that the EU lays down. So the deal is pretty much the same as being a member of the EU but with one big difference - we will no longer be part of the decision making.

    To sort this out, you would have to be 'as cunning as a fox who has just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University' (Edmund Blackadder). And May isn't. We may be bored. But business leaders already talking about moving production and jobs: http://uk.businessinsider.com/businesses-attack-uk-government-over-handling-of-brexit-2018-7 Davis is just another one that has decided to go for an early bath rather than put on his country's shirt and play

    Put your VIN in realoem and it should tell you if you have SLS or not. If it is still unclear, just have a look underneath. SLS will look like this: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=DD32-EUR-01-1998-E39-BMW-523i&diagId=33_0520
