Not before time.    I wouldn't mind if they only sold essentials, but I'd be struggling to work out who needs a £300 iPad from there, and eventually paying nearly £800.

Never like the thought of people losing their jobs but the sooner this odious outfit hits the buffers the better.

Obviously it'll please the ones who have always moaned about the likes of Brighthouse, but no so good for the staff or the people who need the facilities they offer. The next thing for the charities to source will be wide screen tv's to pick up with your food parcels.

The Brexit effect is really starting to hurt those who hurt the poorest! Hurrah!

Perhaps the Co-op could provide a similar model to Brightside but at much cheaper or zero interest rates?

Can't have been a very good investment. She should change her stockbroker.

Let's be right. You'd have to be a complete idiot to buy anything from them.

Or in a position where you have nowhere else to turn.

My generation bought second hand when we were starting out. If you couldn't afford, you went without and you saved until you could buy.
