  1. actually.............   filled my boots in my local very empty Waitrose yesterday with loads and loads of reduced to clear stuff  which can all be frozen .... happy days just like 4.55 on a Christmas eve ...  like the person who managed to get a few sand bags for their fall-out shelter just before Kim Il Sun/Jun whatever says lets kick them now while we have a chance,   I will eat well for a more days a least..

  2. I lost the faith unlike a lot of you still here...   always thought it was going to be a dirty bomb that caused the `only buy when the blood is on the floor` moment,  got that wrong , but what is the value of a trllion pound note when nobody will handle  cash money and the card machine doesn`t work?

  3. At least it's an attempt to get serious contemporary stuff across in a funny way. Most of the supposedly 'radical' comedians on the BBC haven't moved on from the days when all you needed to do was say 'Thatcher' and 'Tories' to get a laugh. (Yes I'm looking at YOU Marcus Brigstocke, Mark Steel, Mark Thomas, etc etc).


    `actually` what you needed to do was stand strark bollac naked in front of an audience with a lighted firework up your bum.. Malcom Hardee you are sadly missed in the not so brave new world of corporate sellouts that don`t allow hecklers..

  4. Sainsbury's has only one role, to keep the rif raf out of Waitroes

    au fugging contraire Blackadder..............

    after my several cups of free coffee with my mywaitrose card, I delight in following the mark down sticker girl around the store and haggling down the sticker prices, a great fun night out for us oiks.. ie, if you press your nose up against the window of the posh restaurant sometimes the`ll pay you to go away

  5. In the last election over 20% of Scots voted conservative - and for a finger in the air guess. I would say between a third and a half of Scots don't hate thatcher at all.

    .. native born? heading for the hills to avoid hpi (and/or benefit from), has been going on for a very, very long time

  6. All this hatred of Germany on here! Someone even posts Fawlty Towers! Blimey...as far as I can see, Germany seems to have got most things right. It has an industrial base, whilst we have house prices. Even their football league is run better than ours - ours is bought out by Russians and sheiks. I can only presume the hatred of Germany on here is borne out of jealousy.

    ... throwing your Granparents into a barn and setting fire to it (across most parts of europe) might just possibly also have something to do with it........

  7. I thought they were detached houses with big back gardens, from what I recall, but not 100% sure.. Was the house which Terry and June lived, a semi or detached property in Guildford or Purley? Anyway, checking on the web, photos of the Good Life houses, as below, show them as detached. Thinking about it, it would be unimaginable that Margo would live in a semi. :lol:


    The Good's House - Middlesex


    The Leadbetter's house - Middlesex


    SOLID INTERNAL WALLS ! says more about your home than German stainless steel appliances ever can..

  8. So when they ask for my CV which shows the only jobs I have had are in professional ones, I say what? Or do you expect me to lie? Jesus.

    can`t get away with it anyway now.....

    under F.O.I. you can request a (free) copy from HMRC of all the N.I. contributions you have ever paid throughout your life... which also states who you have worked for!

    and the dates

    now while a potential employer can not directly get this information themselves, they can of course get (make!) you, to do it for them

  9. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-17423461

    Go accounting rules!

    I'm sure as taxpayers this news fills you all full of joy.

    Especially as it seems likely the Royal Mail gets sold off, so the profits get privatised the losses are socialised on the taxpayer.

    Great news.

    privatised `profits`............ sack all the `real` posties, asset strip every thing, sell and lease back all the property portfollio, charge £30.00 for a stamp and that shower of

    sh!te will still NEVER turn a real world profit

    then again what does these days

  10. Stacking super market shelves sure is the answer to everything!


    School leavers


    Work shy dole recipients

    Terminally ill




    Sod houses, there aren't enough shelves.

    if I ran a big supermarket I would palletise my goods, with clever mechanical displays that pushed or droped stock forward and then I wouldn`t even need shelf fillers...

    for all their billions why haven`t the big corps realised how inefficient shelf filling actually is?

  11. I reckon Scotlands the place to be. I've been thinking about it for a while now, and looking at fantastic places on sea lochs, that are real cheap compared to places down here in the south.

    I fancy getting a boat and catching the odd sea trout or salmon. Getting a dog and walking with my gun to shoot the odd pheasant or grouse.

    Then taking my guitar down to the local pub, and sit by a roaring fire and entertain in the evening.

    And some of those Scottish lasses are well fit !!!:P

    ... on the wall of my daughters primary school is a poster from the Scotish Goverment,

    its shows a Russian doll with all the smaller dolls all in a line

    under the biggest doll is the Scottish Saltire and under the other dolls are the flags of Ireland, Pakistan, India, Somalia etc..

    with the strap line that esentially says we`re all one big happy family living together in multicultural harmony

    all good stuff apart one teeny weeny detail...

    there is one flag missing from this poster FROM THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT

    and its the flag of the nation of the largest ethnic minority in Scotland

    a wee something to think about when moving north

  12. a few years ago I suggested to some senior bods at Comet that they should have they own satellite tv Chanel to sell AND demonstrate their goods.. have it on in store and on line live ...

    I was laughed at...

    they are now all out on their arses....

    my point .. when you buy anything online (or nowadays anywhere else) have you not already made up your mind to buy it in the first place.. you`re just looking for the best price?

    where are the sites/stores that can demonstrate and SELL to you something that you THEN actually want to buy?

  13. It's too difficult to answer this as it suffers from the same spaghetti muddle of questionably labelled ideologies and interests as the Occupy Wall St protests - which is effectively trying to constantly focus on some distinct group to direct their ire whilst ignoring that their behaviour is directly related to some of their own personal and democratic choices.

    I have nothing in common with a corporate career background director of Tesco but am lumped together as having the same views.

    I suspect that it's unfortunately a lot of people who have yet to realise they don't have much money to spend or any labour to sell that much interests a lot of businesses and they'll increasingly deal exclusively with people who do.

    can communists be self employed ?
