  1. Do all these empty retail premises put a hole in local council funding ? Everywhere there are so many empty shops of all sizes some that have been that way for ages.
  2. Some peeps pop into B&Q for advice then nip next door to Screwfix to buy. Closing the B&Q will adversely affect Screwfix, our local B&Q staff are amazing - and gone...
  3. My in-laws and elderly next door neighbours don't drive, every year around this time of year we take them to buy Christmas drinks and other heavy stuff to save them carrying it on the bus during their thrice weekly visits around shops. I was shocked when I mentioned the TESCO Christmas tv ads - thinking they would be interested in some of the offers. They blanked me straight away, sneering that the TESCO offers might look good, but in the small print there is always a catch. Waste of time those ads. I think this is one area where the big four supermarkets are now losing out to Aldi/Lidl etc. Even elderly people ( especially elderly people ! ) are wise to the tricks and aren't as easy to fool as before.
  4. Feel sorry for ground troops obviously. Visiting Phones4U made me feel like Shrek signing Rumpelstiltskin's contract in Shrek Forever After. The bosses must have had the same mindset as Dixons/Comet/PC World/Currys had with pushing extended warranty etc. Dixons Carphone won't last for long either.
  5. Back in November this policy was ruled out. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-25017406 Let alone no skills no JSA, Ed should reflect no skills no premiership - for Ed.
  6. In Wrexham this week-end my uncle has told me the cancer charity shop was broken into, Scott bikes, laptops, cash stolen, his neighbour's garage broken into on Good Friday they took a Honda Fireblade, and around the corner a '13 reg BMW 3 something was taken after they broke into the house and took the keys. Have to be quite brave to have something like a VW R these days, unless I'm just paranoid. Maybe thousands of people have them without any trouble.
  7. Whatever people have to complain about Blackpool council, it could be worse, they could have Morecambe council. The 5000+ punk rockers brought £1m+ from all over the world into the Morecambe economy but the council lost them to Blackpool since 2002 because of giving in to market traders that didn't want to close the markets for 3 days a year. The punks are quite happy by all accounts having everything under one roof in the Winter Gardens saves them having walk anywhere, after all most of them are pensioners now. http://www.lancasterguardian.co.uk/news/local/punk-row-divides-the-independents-1-1166569
  8. Faisal Islam is so close. It spoke volumes the VT started tonight outside an empty property.
  9. Simon & Garfunkel rightly sang " A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest ". Well I'm sure I heard The Winkler say if the mortgage isn't paid we lose that house. Exactly. The whole point of this exercise is to reduce rents and ergo reduce housing benefit expenditure. They have tried the mantra that if people can't find somewhere close to London they can afford on HB then they will have to live somewhere cheaper further out. Now stage 2. Landlords have had it so easy with their rents paid by government money, now they will have to find a working Eastern European to pay top whack. Much harder these folks will sleep in cars, vans, or at least have a sleeping bag in a shared flat. Rents will have to drop to match the affordability of tenants, it isn't housing benefit tenant families that will have to be evicted to be replaced by higher paying working renters. Its landlords having to sell up through lack of cashflow. Mr Wilson looks extremely disgruntled. What would you rather ? Guaranteed payments from Department Of Work & Pensions or having to chase private accounts. The news media have this back to front .. so far. Nothing has changed since Foxtrot.
  10. I'm not against the BBC. If people want to pay £145 per year for it fine. I would choose not to do so, erm, except I would be sent to prison. At this point the Beeb luvies pipe up nobody goes to prison for not having a tv licence. People are sent to prison for non-payment of the fine for....not having a tv licence. Pinch me its 2013, how are they getting away with it ?
  11. Quite. How can we take ratings agencies seriously, ratings-schmatings pah ! Its OK when they have USA & UK AAA, but if they are going to bite the hand that feeds them they can eat cake.
