  1. The lease rates are bad at the moment. I have a car for work, 3 year lease due for renewal this year. Have been looking at replacements and the same car is much more expensive. Across the board, cars of a similar spec are about £70 to £100 per month more expensive. Couple that with the changes to dividend taxes and Im about £2k down already compared to last year Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  2. I was very disappointed with the new Macgyver. I liked the original, didnt watch too much of the new one. Too many other things to binge on. Finally got around to the expanse. Half way through season 2. Like very much. But the James Holden actor reminds me of James from TFBtv for some reason....
  3. Vat has some oddities and complications. Doritos, non vat. Other crisps, vat. Eat in and takeaway food/drink gets fun as well. At its simplest if it is served hot (or above ambient temperature) it's vAt away. Everything eatin is vatable. Vat is a pain. But epos systems we install helps calculate it, so I suppose it's quite important to me! Corporation tax is my least favourite. As a small company, we pay about the same to Hmrc as we do to ourselves. I had to speak to Hmrc today about an issue, I knew what the problem was and what they needed to do to resolve it. I had to speak t
  4. I had a corsa as a company car years ago. Was not happy about that! Hateful thing, stayed in the company for years, it would not die. When I had it, it developed a massive oil leak, but boss just wanted me to keep driving it for the day. Had to stop every half hour to put oil in it, because the engine was howling. (And yes, in hindsight and being older I know that the oil was going on the road and probably creating a hazard). Another time my colleague filled it up with oil. But being new to cars didnt realise you dont just keep filling it up until its full It started and tur
  5. Phil wood. It's well run, briefing is not overly long and had two good game days there. Definitely recommend if you like a bit of close up work. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  6. Shame upper heyford wasn't around for longer, had the makings of a good site. Barracks in Borden is a good site. Been a couple of times, some v tight cqb. Taking/holding the central atrium/stairwells is a challenge! Badgertac had an interesting site in Phoenix college, but i believe that's closed now. Was only about half hour away Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. It is gold. Those of us who work from home and have kids will empathise. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  8. Which tax are you worried about? If it's road tax, that's not usually a massive difference when you factor in all running costs (although it's been a little bit since I've looked in detail) When I got my last car, 2.5t smax, I was after a diesel. But the purchase price for the petrol was about half. Obviously the mpg sucked in comparison but overall it worked out cheaper. And more fun Some cars are more prone to issues with dpf, but as long as you are doing regular longer faster runs it should be OK. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  9. Unless you really need a diesel, it's best to avoid. Urban driving and dpf doesn't mix. They can create massive headaches for you if you're not getting it to regenerate regularly. For driving instructor work, I would say it has to be petrol. At that age/budget I would probably look at Mondeo. Had one a few years back as a company car, was very very good. Another one I really liked was my 03 Honda accord tourer type S. 2.4 litre view engine not the most efficient but a great drive. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  10. V excited about red dead 2, but does bug me the way its announced a year in advance........thats become a "thing" with games now. Still, there are a loads of games coming up, Ghost Recon Wildlands looks very good. But then I quite like the division (with its flaws) and it just looks like a more spec op, open world version of that. Something else I liked today, stumbled across http://www.spectreminiatures.com/ They are soooo nice. Takes me back to my late teens, playing rpgs and warhammer 40k (I was around for the first edition stuff ! ) Would have loved these then. Quite
  11. Only if it's in your contract. And the contract probably hasn't been updated to cover sickness during holidays. The paperwork from the hospital would likely be sufficient. However it's probably not worth the hassle unless you don't like you job or your employer Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  12. If you're sick while on annual leave, it doesn't have to count as annual leave. You have the right to rebook it! Strange but true. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  13. This time last year the NHS stopped me from dying, so I'm mostly positive about them. The other patients when I was on the respiratory ward is another story. Foreign business man to my left treating it like a hotel. Vile man, treated nurses soon badly. Had his girlfriend/slave come I whenever he felt like. Soon learned to go in the shared bathroom after I had been cleaned and before he used it... Guy to my right was an overdose I believe and woke me up at 2am with something blaring out of his iPhone (never worked out what it was, May have been audio book of religious text.) old
  14. I've had ee for a few years. Generally very good signal and get very fast data- 75 down, 12 up! Doing anything through their website has always caused me hassle, but their call centres are good. Got that £20deal for the wife. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  15. I got a giffgaff sim for other half to use for data while she was away in Norfolk. Unfortunately got no signal where she was, even though online jobby said it would be OK. My ee one is fine there. Oh and today I got taken around silverstone in a ligier p3, adapted to take a passenger. Driver was very good, the speed and braking of that thing was ridiculous. Buuuuuut, I get motion sickness when not the driver. Felt very ill afterwards but was well worth it! BMW i8 at track speeds just sounds wrong. The race ready Aston was an absolute beast....
