And you could own a car that is neither SORNed or licenced.SORN simply means you have not applied for road tax and will therefore keep your car off the road.
You could own and sorn a car without a driving licence.
You could drive it around the fields for example.
Take it on the road sans licence and with SORN and you're breaking two laws. At least.
Whatever else happens I hope they end up with less seats than they went in with, including Swinson's.In amongst all the doom and gloom and the latest news that Labour appears to be closing the gap on the Tories, there is one silver lining which has sent me to bed with a smile on my face. Namely:
“Jo Swinson ends election campaign less popular than Jeremy Corbyn”
Derek Draper walts!Momentum are digging deep
Momentum activists plotted a campaign to “dig up dirt” on prominent Conservatives, it has emerged, including attempts to smear Boris Johnson’s girlfriend.www.telegraph.co.uk
It boggles my brain that more than a handful of deluded morons would vote for that tosser and the absolute shower that make up the shadow cabinet.The relentless MSM cheerleading for Labour is working
The forecast suggests the race has tightened since the the previous MRP model on November 27 showed the Tories on course for a majority of 68 in the UK general election.www.dailymail.co.uk
That's already covered.That could get confusing - I use Prime but I don't think I'm streaming programmes live. It's all stuff that's been available for some time (i.e. archived). I suppose that if you watch the next Grand Tour from the moment it's put up you might be watching it as it's "live" but if you give it an hour and then watch it presumably you are not watching it as it goes out "live...?"
ETA: Ah, no - I get it. They're showing the footie at the moment on Prime. If I watched that as the match is being played it would be "live." If I watch it later it's on-demand streaming and not subject to a licence...?
Just don't start another one on Friday asking Arrsers whether they are happy with the final result,Yeh, I don't mind the abuse I will get for running another poll.
Thanks for the suggestion. I will ensure you get due credit for the poll !
And victory for the 'quiet Australians'.I hope you're enjoying a frisson of excitement at the prospect of your forthcoming election. I've never been in the UK at election time so I've never experienced the sentiment that might be afoot. I'm sure the world-weariness prevalent on ARRSE is only to be expected, but is there a carnival atmosphere or is it all gimlet-eyed calculation? The mid-week polling, first-past-the-post and the five-year terms are all very different to our practice here in AU, not to mention the optional voting. Add to all that it's likely to be pretty bleak, weather-wise. All well outside my ken.
Here in the wide brown we had a general election on a Saturday in May. It's compulsory to lob and get your name marked off the roll unless you've made other arrangements like a postal vote (the popularity of which caught everyone out, with over 30% taking up that option). So we queued up in communal bonhomie and under blue skies, hoeing into our barbequed 'democracy sausages' thoughtfully provisioned by the local school P&C as a fundraiser.
After the revolving door of PM's we'd had and the increasing divergence of the two main parties platforms, the opposition Labor Party was widely expected to romp in, but as the vote count got underway it seemed Labor had been just a bit too smug, and philosophically undefined to gain the confidence and trust they needed, and their vote dropped away. So the Liberal/National coalition (probably closest to your Conservatives in outlook) swanned into their third consecutive term to their own surprise and to the quiet satisfaction of the majority who'd opted to give them another run. A bit different, eh?
I hope the ferret's OK.Call for the Ferrets, that'll sort these commies out Labour's Karl Turner bitten by ferret while canvassing for votes
snip "Labour's Karl Turner bitten by ferret while canvassing for votes in east Hull "
In a tweet he said: “I met this young man taking his pet ferret for a walk. Bit me.
The picture shows Mr Turner wearing his red rosette, with a sheepish-looking young boy holding the ferret, which appeared to be licking its lips.
Now many social media users have been calling for the ferret to become Prime Minister."

Others will vote Conservative. They don't like the Conservatives, but there is no way they will vote Labour now and they think the Tories have the best chance of delivering Brexit."I voted remain," he said. "But it's a democracy. We voted out, we should have left. If you can't go with your vote, you've lost your democracy."
It's a strong and common sentiment in these parts. And Steve is a perfect example of just how much traditional party politics in England has been upended by Brexit.
He's voted Labour all his life, but won't this time because he can't stomach Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Nor can he bring himself to back the Conservatives, and he won't support the pro-EU Liberal Democrats because they've pledged to stop Brexit by revoking Article 50, which set the Brexit countdown running in the first place.
And that makes him a remain supporter who will be casting a ballot for the Brexit Party, which has parachuted its chairman, multimillionaire Richard Tice, into Hartlepool as its candidate.
Others intend to simply stay home and not vote.Fisherman Ronnie Horn, for example, knows he'll have to make a choice between the two pro-Brexit parties and thinks the Conservatives will have the better chance.
"I don't really want to vote for Conservatives," he said, "but there's no way on this earth I'll vote for Labour."
I recommand reading the article to get a fuller development of the story. I recommend even more to listen to the audio clip, as the interviewees are given more opportunity to explain themselves, so you get a much better picture of how they feel and what their reasoning is.There are some too, like bingo-goer, Rita Kelly, who say they are so disaffected by the choices in front of them that they will vote for no one.
"Women have suffered and died for the vote for women, and I feel very guilty that I'm not using my vote at the moment. But, on the other hand, I'm very careful about where I give my loyalties — and this lot don't get it."
I wonder if those who wrongly “briefed” her will apologise?Has Ms Kuenssberg seen the writing on the wall? An unforced apology! Whatever next?
