  1. 28 Basic + 8 Bank holidays + Buy an additional 5 days = 41 Days.... not to shabby
  2. Loving my winter tyres here and looking forward to using them again in the next few week
  3. £457 x 52 = £23764 £23764 x 4.5 + 20% Deposit = £133672.50 Which will get you this for £130,000 http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-59313067.html
  4. Springs you say... I'll see your springs and raise you an Ammo Dump http://www.expressandstar.com/news/2016/03/19/builders-put-burntwood-homes-on-hold-after-second-bomb-found/
  5. There's as much chance of that as there is of Blair ending up in the Hague, but I agree with Bruce I'll never vote Tory or Labour again.
  6. It's got to be 50+ on any of the polls for the SNP.... I think this exit poll is extremely flawed 20,000 people questioned and extrapolated out to 20m voters, lots of room for a massive margin of error.
  7. I think 5 seats & 20% is a little optimistic, but not out of the realms of possibility. Most betting odds have them at 3 - 4 seats, but if the feeling I get from my local seat is correct then I think that is on the low side. I'll predict the following: 4 seats 19% of the vote 2nd place in 120 seats (mostly Labour) - this will make them think twice about a 2nd election later in the year Grand coalition of Conservative & Labour to keep SNP/UKIP/Greens out of any sort of power, but it will fail within 6 months.
  8. Today me and my family shall be voting UKIP in one of their 10 target seats. For my seat the polls have us slightly behind Labour with the conservatives in 3rd, a vote for the Torys would be a wasted vote here and they should follow the advice to vote UKIP to keep Labour out.
  9. on 2nd thoughts I'm quite happy .... Osbourne has just said to the next Labour government that there will be no FTB for the next parliament as they'll all be saving in their ISAs for the next 5 years
  10. Pretty chilled I've got some prescription codine and a bottle of Aberlour... should I be angry?
  11. The weight on your original link is wrong... they are the same product at the same price. http://www.yeoldeoak.co.uk/products/hotdogs/american-range
  12. It's the same price when you compare the same product. http://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/?id=261037799
  13. We've had this argument in our household, as my wife was getting done over on holidays by the rather large catalogue store that she worked for. She had an 8 hours contract, rotas were done 2 weeks in advance and included required overtime at that point, anywhere between 20-30 hours a week. You were not allowed to refuse any hours given to you. When it came to holidays she was only paid for the 8 hours in her contract not the average that she'd been working. Seems a shame that they're looking to limit this though as it would be nice to take this employer to the cleaners for 5 years of holiday pay. A conservative estimate at 15 hours a week overtime, missing from 5 weeks holiday pay per year for 5 years at minimum wage .... 15 x 5 x 5 x £6.50 = £2437.50 This employer has been known to give 3 hour contracts to people and expect them to work 40 hours a week, but I am told now that things are better an the mimimum contract they give is now 10 hours.
  14. My wife works for Argos and she gets a staff discount in the argos stores of 10%, but she gets 20% in Homebase... most of the time it's still cheaper to buy the same item from Argos
