    You're using M3 ITBs? Presumably dividing the six ITBs into two banks of three? Linking two banks together might be fun.

    Could be so that tape definitely goes all the way across the rim bed, including the wells for the tyre beads. Having started using narrow tape, I now work on the 'wider the better' assumption.

    Well, yes, I suppose a little light recreational torturing might be a possibility. But apparently sleep deprivation, 'stress positions' (a euphemism for being hung up by your arms) and simulated drowning (waterboarding is another euphemism) isn't torture, according to the God-fearing democratic evangelists in the Land Of The Free, so that gives bored royal Arab sadists considerable latitude over what is or isn't 'torture'. Anyway, who hasn't been innocently walking along with a pair of jump leads connected to the mains, and then accidentally fallen over and brushed them against someone else's testicles? Happens all the time. Well, back to cycling...

    The UK wants both parties to see what they have to offer each other and work towards a mutually (un)satisfactory arrangement,

    Hmmm. Starting the negotiations with hard lines which have to be met, like (1) leaving the single market (2) leaving the customs union (3) ending freedom of movement and (4) ending any jurisdiction of the ECJ over UK internal policy doesn't sound like the pragmatic and constructive negotiators you're discussing.

    I think the allegation is that he HAS personally tortured people

    Not according to the BBC news website that the wikipedia page that quote is taken from uses as its citation - it says he directed it to happen. My underlying point being that telling your pet torturer to torture someone else is not morally better than doing it yourself.

    He denies allegations that he has ever personally tortured anyone.

    Of course he hasn't. He got someone to do it for him. I mean, you don't, as a member of the royal family, have your own securities services and do your own torturing.

    Of those who voted for May,

    140 are on the Governmental payroll,

    That assumes that all 140 voted for May. Which is very far from guaranteed. Indeed, the chances of them all voting for her I would put at very roughly nil.

    I think it's more like the Air France crash near Brazil - the participants know something's wrong, but a minority are continuing to do the thing that started the problem in the first place.
