  1. Of course they wont rise up, why should they when they can come over here and get a house and claim benefits. Wish it was like that here.
  2. The government raised the energy price cap in March. This increased the price of an average bill by about £95 a year. It would seem they are raising it again in September and this time it will increase the price by about £130 a year. In their wisdom the government have also allowed the energy companies to include a charge of £30 a year on all customers bills, to compensate tthem for defaulters. Energy companies are also refusing to allow customers who refuse to have a smart meter fitted ,sign up for a fixed lower price deal. We really are having to choose between eating and heating.
  3. It was boring, it could easily have been written into an hour long programme.
  4. It would seem that Ofgen,backed by the government, has allowed energy companies to increase their prices twice this year already. Firstly they have been allowed to increase every customers bill by around £25 per year. Unbelievebly this has been allowed to compensate the companies for the massive increase of payment defaulters. Secondly the price cap has been increased, and this will add about £95 per year on the average bill. The final nail in the coffin for consumers is the fact that the majority of companies will not allow customers to have a lower price deal unless they have a smart meter fitted. So I assume that as so many customers couldn't pay their bills last year there will be even more this year. We really are choosing between eating and heating now, thanks to our caring government.
  5. All the BBC have offered over the Xmas period is a mass of repeats, hardly any new programmes at all. They don't even offer a plus one hour channel and they can't even keep to time.Anybody who records a BBC program will be lucky if they get the ending as programmes are often several minutes late finishing.For this abysmal mess we are required by law to pay about £170 per year.It would be nice to know just what The BBC are spending our money on ,it certainly isn't new programmes, it must be on obscene wages to second rate presenters. The BBC is now unfit for purpose and it is time the licence fee was stopped.
  6. Yes you are right Janus,I have been wondering about this.These vehicles with one dazzler always appear to be almost new.I have also noticed newish vehicles also seem to have headlights that appear to brighten when the vehicle goes over a bump. When one of these vehicles is following me it gives the impression the driver is flashing me to stop,in fact when this first happened I did stop,but of course the other driver didn't. I have been wondering if both of these problems are caused by a faulty light levelling system which is now fitted to many new cars.
  7. I've always said that it should be done like this anyway, sometimes people don't really want two but they buy the BOGOF offer and then one gets wasted. What really bugs me is the shops that have offers something like: £5 each,buy 4 for £8. These items really should be priced at £2 each.
  8. Holland and Barrett already do this with therr 99pence sale. You buy one item at full price and another of the same for 99 pence.
  9. There was yet another example of this on Jeremy Vine this week. The discussion was weather or not Pritti Patel should resign over the bullying claims. A viewer rang in and said he thought she should not resign because she was the victim of racism,other politicians wanted her out because she was coloured. At this point Jeremy held up his hand and said "woman of colour " and cut the viewer off. I still don't see the difference so perhaps black or white should be the terms used, or would this upset somebody?
  10. This question was briefly discussed on Jeremy Vine last week, but the so called experts couldn't come up with an answer. Apparently to refer to someone as coloured is disrespectful,a person of colour is the correct term.I couldn't see the difference, so I checked to see what was on the internet and there were umpteen different opinions .Some sites said coloured was the disrespectful one, others said people of colour was the disrespectful one, so I am still at a loss .I know Dianne Abbott asked for an apology when Amber Rudd referred to her as coloured but I heard Matt Hancock use the term last week. Whatever term is used it would seem that some people will be upset, so it would be really interesting to know what is the correct and accepted version so that no offence is caused.
  11. Energy companies are laughing all the way to the bank .Because of two lockdowns people are staying in and therefore using more energy. My usage is up about 40%, the same can be said for water usage with the extra hand washing advised. No surprise if this surcharge isLooks as though it will be sensible to join the non payment club. implemented as we already pay extra council tax to compensate for non payers and extra insurance for uninsured drivers. Looks as though it would be sensible to join the non payment club.
  12. Good answer Presley,I'm daft enough to do it every week when i come away from Rowsley car boot.
  13. The test gets worse.Once upon a time if an air bag or an abs warning light stayed on it was not a test failure ,but it is now.The simple way to make one of these lights go out is to reconnect the bulb or diode to either the ignition warning light or the oil pressure warning light.
  14. Surprised the show didn't go to Julian Clary,he is really cringeworthy.
  15. BBC is already dead,it will never make a comeback.
