There was a BBC program on driving schools.  There was a woman who refused
to turn right across traffic and would make 3 lefts to get to her objective.
Maybe you can do the reverse and only turn right.  Remember 2 wrongs don't
make a right but 3 lefts do.

Do you have 12 volts to the bulb holder?  A test light will tell you if you
do.  If so then it is the contact between the bulb and the holder.  If no 12
volts then you need to work back. I have noticed that the bulb holder on my
A seems to be kind of deep for the bulb, when you push in the bulb the glass
hits the holder as you twist it to seat.  Is there a bulb with a longer neck
before it bulbs out?

Well, I'm sorry to say that new bulbs did not fix the problem. Still have no
reliable functioning left turn signals. Rights are fine.

I had a similar problem with a 1980 TR7 (no doubt similar British
leyland electrics). It didn't seem like the problem could be a light
bulb if they actually worked (although slow) but that was the suggested
solution. Since the lights are cheap and readily available, I went ahead
and replaced all of them and that did fix the problem.
