    Turn it on and off again as quickly as you can a couple of dozen times. That should see you right for another couple of years.

    They were in office rather than in power, and they enabled the rhetoric and the decisions of austerity.

    A confidence and supply agreement would have given them greater power to act as a moderating force on Cameron, Osborne and IDS, and it would have saved them (IMO) from a lot of the deserved opprobrium they now get.

    But it wouldn't have given them seats in Cabinet.

    Yeah, I've given a washing machine a new lease of life by replacing (on separate occasions) the heating element and the motor brushes.

    I'd have thought a compatible element (rather than manufacturer branded part) would be about £15-£20, then probably half a dozen screws in total (four to get the back off, then another couple for the element). Should be pretty easy, and cheap enough that if it's a more fundamental fault you've lost little except a bit of time and effort.

    The more the merrier ...

    Working tomorrow night and going to Birmingham on Tuesday night then to Edinburgh, so London collection or postage would either have to be arranged quickly (for Monday morning) or left till next week, but I could take them with me.

    Rim brakes, stainless spokes, QR.

    I'll dig them out and get a (crappy, probably) picture tomorrow, at which point I'll be able to say whether hubs and rims are black or silver.

    Aye, fixed or geared? If geared I've got an unused set, shimano-compatible with Rigida/Ryde rims. Project that never happened etc etc - I guess £45 collected from SE7, or could post

    Ad Astra last night. It could have been a really, really good 18 minute short.

    Where in London is it?

    I'm not sure, but something seems to tell me that there's a chance it might be in Sunbury-on-Thames ...

    If that^^ falls through I'd be happy to take them ...

    I'd speak to Pedalcover - good, personal service at quotation and renewal, realistic approach to bikes and possessions outside the home, and £200 cheaper than our previous insurer. No claims experience, mind.
