OK I know that this is total off topic>

Oh and I've bought myself a Jaguar XJ6, I did have a Jag X-Type but sold that, I wanted a real Jag. Not spent a lot, no need to, not many want a 3 litre petrol, fuel and Insurance might be a bit heavy but I can afford that now:) no need to go to university chaps...cost me 3300. 70k, all Jaguar service stamps in the book, should see me out!

To make you really sick JB there is a superb P reg XJ6 executive for sale in a garage not far from me and he is asking less than 1600. I acquired my "Gentleman's Carriage" last week, it has a soft top, 12 cylinders, the insurance is 220 and toad tax 0. 8)

I think we had better get back on topic now or well will shouted at, I should say though, that I concur with most of what has been said so far.

"the university is trying to generate income" ?.......no ...no...no

In a few years ....simple mathematics'  :o will confirm

All clerical/admin employment roles will be filled by persons with a PhD in Applied Humanities
All technical employment roles will be filled with persons with a similar PhD, but specialising in Bolts & Electrons

I reckon Dentists type work will be one of the last trades to be changed....

Like my Dentist was a Dentist 30 years ago ...now he is a Professor of Root Therapy  {-)

I rest my case..... Derek

I know where there is an older pre facelift, and rounding of buttresses XJS....think the guy is trying to return it to mother earth but might be interested in selling...


as for LB's previous post.........what is "toad tax".........perhaps something that makes your car go off from the lights in "leaps and bounds{-) {-) {-) {-)
