Well there are numerous reporters who don't share the political inclinations of their papers, and moving from right wing to left wing papers isn't all that unusual.

Yeah the Economy 7 period is due to begin at midnight, so unless it starts charging then, I'll know it's broken.

I have a Consumer Unit, an Ashley & Rock Supasafe from the 1990s.

Thanks, so a 3 amp is definitely too low then? I'm astonished there was a 3 amp fuse there in the first place in that case.

Cleese is very hit-and-miss to me. I never really liked Python because it was too snide and posh schoolboy-ish for me. I still find Fawlty Towers hilarious, the same goes for the films Clockwise and...
