    Samsung repair bar had to reset my phone. Everything backs up daily to Google.

    When the repair guy restarted it and had me log in I thought it would restore the phone as was from the google backup but seems like it’s restored specific data (eg contacts) but not state (eg biometrics, WiFi passwords, home screen setup).

    Is that normal for android? I think when I’ve changed phones before I use Samsung’s phone switch which did transfer everything.

    You take out a mortgage, only pay the interest, die before you have to pay the capital.

    Or sell up and move North, which is similar

    I am leaving work now, be there about 5.45. I am the one that looks like Bjork's fat granny.

    Might all London go yellow?

    Tottenham won't unless Lammy defects to the Lib Dems or stands down and advised his supporters to vote Lib Dem. Can't see either happening but we are in strange times...

    He waits til after No Deal to neuter the Brexit Party. He has kept to his word and got us out by Oct 31st. Didn't back down, etc etc etc.

    He'd be gambling on anti-Corbyn feeling outweighing people pissed off about No Deal.

    Realistically, once Brexit happens, where will Remain voters who are not natural Corbynites go? The Lib Dems are pushing themselves as the Stop Brexit party, but as far as I can see they don't have any story after that.

    So the suggestion I hear is:

    1) No Deal happens. Chaos ensues.
    2) BJ calls immediate election and with no Brexit Party to split the vote, gains a Tory majority
    3) BJ proposes a revised version of the Withdrawal Agreement that is pretty much the same other than it shifts the backstop border to the Irish sea, upholding the Good Friday Agreement. DUP vote against it but pretty much everyone else votes for it
    4) EU accept the WA and No Deal stops. We finally begin negotiating trade deals.

    The Newspeak demonisation of the tag "Liberal" has been growing in the US with the rise and rise of right wing Neo Con extremism over the last 3-4 decades.

    I find it a very useful indicator for whether I am talking to someone who has formed views through their own knowledge of British culture and politics, or someone who has picked up views via social media.

    Is it a sturmey with the threaded indictator rod?

    If so check that the chain comes out of the nut in line with the cable. I find if the chain is at a slight angle to the cable I can never get the gears properly adjusted

    Last weekend there was a camp out in the community playing field, like a mini festival for precocious

    We had urban maypole in South Tottenham once, does that count?
