    Halifax Bank, Just Had To Jump Through Hoops To Get My Money Out

    Just as a counter-anecdote, last week I rocked up to my bank and withdrew £5k in cash with no notice and not a batted eyelid from the girl serving me. She needed additional ID (I had my passport as I expected this), and it took her maybe 5-7 mins to get the 50s together, counted and in an envelope. I was NOT asked why I needed the cash. I was NOT taken into a back room. I was NOT quizzed by multiple members of staff.

    Exit Poll Shows Tories On 316, 10 Short Of Majority

    Clegg is going to have to resign as leader - I cannot see any new leader going back into coalition with the Tories after what the last 5 years have done to them!

    He won't resign his seat to force a by-election. He'll just be an MP in name only, never going anywhere near Westminster, just like Gordon Brown.

    Would go down well in Sunderland
  11. It's clearly a Colchester United mug. (unsurprising as the house-(&mug-)owning mug hails from deepest darkest Essex). If the Torygraph can't even get that right how are we expected to believe anything else in this propaganda release?

    Google Targets Mortgage Brokers

    I agree Google Maps are atrocious. Bing maps provide the OS maps with a much nicer interface than Streetmap
  13. Maybe he was managing a shop, or perhaps working for TFL in the tube station
  14. Every time LLL goes to London in this series, the punters have a look of horror and disbelief every time they are shown round some bog-standard basement flat in Catford that's on for best part of half a million. You can see it in their eyes as plain as day - "you expect me to pay THAT for THIS?". Krusty and Phil laugh nervously and also have a slightly hunted look in their eyes. No-one in the entire programme seemed to believe anything they were saying. The bloke discussed above was clearly under pressure from his wife and he had a young child, I felt sorry for him. Best quote "I'm not paying half a million pounds so I can get a bus to work".
