    @bobcat

    Its been on the cards for a couple of weeks we only mentioned it yesterday. Going to be difficult, we are not used to being restricted to this level. I think this could be well into the summer.

    The best advice is don’t do anything like big purchases, the stock market is so fickle, someone will see this as an opportunity to make money. 2020 is not turning out to be the year of travel.

    I suppose if someone turns up for their MoT test tomorrow they are in contravention of the P.M.’s order?
    Are they?

    Not even sure that I should be going to to work. DVSA are keeping quiet, that’s normal though apart from suspending HGV testing for 3 months.

    @elliot that’s a good point, now unsure if I should cancel my service and MOT booked for the 2nd of April.

    The list has been published on .gov of the business’s that can stay open. Garages are on the list. Best check with your dealer and if you get pulled on the way there you are ensuring that your vehicle is kept legal, so you would think that would be essential ?

    You would think so but my dealer of choice is about 35 miles from my house so might be frowned on perhaps. I’ll give them a ring in the morning.

    I have cancelled my 2nd service tomorrow, (the Focus is a second car, so i don’t see how i could say it was essential travel) and i have emailed Ford customer service to ask them for assurance that the warranty wont be invalidated due to a missed service. Hopefully Ford will apply commonsense. I have offered to take an image of the mileage to assure that the car is limited/not used according to whatever they decide they require. I expect that there will be a few others with 67 and 18 cars in the same boat. The email address for Ford, for this particular issue is  @ford.com">ukcrc1@ford.com

    stay safe people, no matter how long it takes, we will crackle and pop again

    Please, think of the poor pikeys at a time like this >…



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Call from dealership, they are shutting down 4pm today and rescheduling ASAP when they reopen around the 14th April they hope.
