    So with cursory google searches, the only manufacturer I can't find much leaving or issuing warnings about in our list is Toyota. I assume they'll go though, given the other Japanese manufacturers are.

    BMW mention the Netherlands, Vauxhall (owned by Peugeot) have warned, Nissan and Honda obviously going, Ford, JLR apparently also.

    Not great is it.

    Who else makes cars in volume here (not stuff like Bentley, Lotus and Caterham)?
    JLR do, and Vauxhall does somewhere I think? Is there anyone else. I think I read Ford would likely leave Dagenham.

    We must have lost a massively significant part of that industry now.

    Their website, which is blocked at work so I can't confirm, apparently contains this in their statement:

    Labour now pursues policies that would weaken our national security; accepts the narratives of states hostile to our country; has failed to take a lead in addressing the challenge of Brexit and to provide a strong and coherent alternative to the Conservatives’ approach; is passive in circumstances of international humanitarian distress; is hostile to businesses large and small; and threatens to destabilise the British economy in pursuit of ideological objectives.

    Not been following in massive detail this morning but I understood it's been mentioned.

    My mum loves him.

    I've lost track of if we're talking about Umunna. However, if we are, my mum likes him too.

    Given where she lives, she is unfortunately one of those tiresome floating people that you actually will need to get to vote Labour to be able to win power, and who absolutely won't at the minute. I guess she's a Centrist Mum.

    corbyn obliterated the tory majority in the last election.

    Really? I didn't see this. I'd suggest that to 'obliterate' someone in an election (or anything really), it's a pretty vital prerequisite that you at least beat them.

    That's really cool. I'm not sure if it's ok to mention Lepin on this thread - but you could probably cannibalise one of their gt3s more comfortably.

    If you're in West London, I've got a builder I would recommend who's done loads at our place. I know he's comfortable with Velux windows, you'd have to ask / assess whether you want him to go ahead with these.

    Yep - from the 00-45 plans they probably still have on the wall :) I think most people made those, there were a couple of dreadnoughts going as well.

    It's rosewood back and sides, spruce top, ebony fretboard and pau inlays

    Yeah... I did the binding channels by hand, with a scalpel and chisels. Norman told me to do it all that way, then one of the first years told me about the router jig they've got for the same job :)

    There's different sized channels for the sides and front to get different stripes, and again around the tail block. I'd forgotten about that - I'm starting to remember why it took three years now...
