• Immigration question for Australians?

    If a tradesman in the UK got a relative to pretend to be a satisfied customer and provide a reference to immigration officer processing an emigration application three years ago, and are subsequently now in Australia, would they be allowed to remain in Australia if the authorities found out about the false reference they provided? Just curious.

  • Immigration question for Australians?

    If a tradesman planning to emigrate to Australia sent a reference meant to be from a customer to the immigration officer processing the application, but it was actually from a family member; how would the Australian authorities view this after a 3 year period? Would he be ordered to leave Australia for supplying a false reference? Just curious.

Job completed and seat replaced, and wiring plug re-inserted as it was previously. It can only be fitted on way. Battery re-connected. Turned key in ignition and started engine. Airbag warning light stays lit continuously. Everything checks out. Wiring plug in tight. No previous problems. Should have been a straight-forward putting everything back in reverse order, and no sign of a bad connection in wiring plug. Any ideas?

  • Installing LED lights?

  • God gives and takes away - what does this mean?

    In a few modern choruses, and also some preachers have said that "God gives and he takes away." What exactly does this mean? Can you give some examples to demonstrate this?

It has been said that God does not remove any gifts that he has given someone even if they go on to blatantly sin. In what context does God give something and then later take it away? To take something away could imply that God was not aware that the gift would be abused, etc. This question is not specifically about gifts, but I am looking to understand this subject.

Have removed plastic panel inside tailgate and can see 4 nuts, however, there are also 2 white plastic plugs - one at each end. Do these white plastic plugs pull off or are they snapped off. If snapped off then do I need to replace this black plastic moulding too. Any advice appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  • Does a newly cut blade and my old 3 button fob need to be re-programmed at a Ford dealer?

    My old fob from a 52 Mondeo was re-programmed for an 05 new shape Focus as per the Ford manual and works.

    My old fob from a 52 Mondeo was re-programmed for an 05 new shape Focus as per the Ford manual and works. I got a new flat blade from a Ford dealer online (cheaper) and had it cut where I stay at another Ford dealer, however, it opens the door and turns the ignition lights on, but will not start the engine. The dealer says it will need to be programmed by them before it will work and says it will take an hour and cost £64. They said something about new laser cutting and that the re-programming described in the manual does not work with the new flat blades/keys. Any knowledgable help would be helpful as I'm not sure if they are trying to fool me into parting with money.

  • Why do the English whine and moan so much about a little snow. Have you never had snow before?

    When there is as much, if not more snow in Scotland, it rarely gets a mention in the TV yet today all news channels just went on and on about snow in England.

    When there is as much, if not more snow in Scotland, it rarely gets a mention in the TV yet today all news channels just went on and on about snow in England. The motorways and main roads are kept open here and people don't moan but just get on with life, but somehow south of Scotch Corner moaning is a way of life. Leave for work a few minutes earlier, drive slower, etc. It's winter and snow is expected! Are the folk of London so soft they can't handle a little of the white stuff? I suppose they will all want financial compensation because of the great hardship they are facing? I think this is the real issue! People and society is too soft now and used to an easy life, and a few inches of snow becomes a major problem in their lives! Are there any snowploughs in England? Gritters? Were the councils involved ready for snow or were they expecting another heatwave? Sensible replies only, please!

  • Atheism is for the weak-willed!?

    Atheism is only an excuse for people to hide from their need of religion. I have seen atheists, spiritualists, and every other 'ist call out to the God of the Bible when facing death. Everyone has a religion of some sort regardless of how much they deny it.

  • Who do those who know so little think they know it all ?

    Why do the know-it-alls attack those who do not share their beliefs? Fear of something? Think they are better than everyone else? Ignorance is life they have chosen? Tolerance is not part of their life, but tolerance of their belief system is demanded from others. Their abusive manner is to cover their own insecurity - do you agree?
