  1. If you don't earn enough you don't pay NI, I was quite surprised about this when I checked as I'm a low earner.
  2. I have never seen as bored staff as the ones at Jack Wills in Abersoch, North Wales earlier in the year. I exited the shop knowing they were going under..
  3. Internet was poor a few years ago, tho v good here for us now. Cheap rent, multiple income streams, cash work and a very well-used excel spreadsheet has kept head above water personally. I love living where I live here in Pembs so that is everything, I have no desire to move unless maybe further up the track into Ceredigion possibly Gwynedd (i ymarfer yr iaith) for a change, altho I know this patch well and it's home
  4. Select is probably under the radar in areas like London I imagine, with so many other retailers around. However, in lots of small towns there is always a Select on the high street, from my experience. Cheap fashion, jam-packed with stock. A bit like Bon Marche for younger people.
  5. Why stop traffic in London..isn't that causing more pollution from stagnant engines? Why are protestors flocking to London, such a polluted place, surely better to stay away and ease the congestion? These tactics don't seem eco-friendly to me..
  6. Construction firm Dawnus in administration https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-47567023

  8. can I just point out the practical implications of vasectomies on the birth rate? Especially non-reversible and for men who definitely don't want any more...I'm of the mind that I've dodged it as years ago I'm sure we'd have had half a dozen going by birthrates of previous generations, as it is I've had many yrs of accepting it, and I think the world has enough babies. I'm not sure why there's a shock at lower birth rates when the medical profession have been happily snipping away for yrs!🤣
  9. Safe to say a lot of people have expensive habits, whether they realise it or not: Hair, nails, brows, can be £££ if getting it all done in salons regularly cupcakes/ specially made birthday cake, ooh pretty ££ phone on contract..how much per year, every year? Food out somewhere like Harvesters..budget for the week for some splurged on one single meal drinks out, £4/5 per drink Christmas pressies, how long to pay it off? It will take a big adjustment for some people to realise these are not absolute necessaries and It's going to be interesting to see some reactions to cutting out this stuff if they can't really afford it. A sizeable percentage of people already don't spend this kind of money but lots do..if people don't have an Excel spreadsheet how do they manage?
  10. cue everyone checking there's valid terms and conditions a la PPI
  11. the whole remainers are modern intelligent people and brexiters are Neanderthal idiots discourse repeated forever in the media has driven political conversation to zero. If anyone wants to point the fingers at uneducated idiots, just remember there are four fingers pointing back. It's such a shame, I normally zone out on hearing the words Brexit, but making a brief exception for the march day. BORED of the whole repeated arguments as are most alienated Britons, too scared to talk in case they get verbal abuse..what an exciting world we live in, yawn. P.s. voted remain but shock horror can see both sides and guess what I don't know everything, interested in hearing all sides without anyone resorting to rudeness or downgrading others' opinions...which is why I stay clear of discussing Brexit, as all I read is 'they're all idiots' and I wonder who the actual idiots are.

  13. I have also voted tactically Labour as we have an morally-suspect dodgy Tory MP who slid in on a few votes at the last election and he really does need to go now
  14. Sorry off topic - what are these annoying videos about fb and Boris Johnson doing floating down the page? I can't seem to shut them down easily on my mobile and makes reading this site a right pain 😒 click on another page and there it is again
