    The case of the defective tyre

    Last week on returning to my car after visiting a friend I noticed that my rear nearside tyre was under inflated. As I was only about 1 mile from home and had a streaming cold I drove home and left the car in the drive overnight. The next day I decided to change the wheel, by this time...

    Coucil lack of common sense.

    Rommy , why do you keep calling the councillors, all they do is attend meetings to claim their allowances and vet their mates money making schemes. The people who implement the policy are the officers who like to occasionally assert their authority over the poor taxpayer.

    Reducing benefits for the workshy

    Roomy, I've got to agree with everybody else and you are out of order, the guys are just trying to do their job. My other half and I go to our recycling centre regularly and the staff there couldn't be more helpful. They assist you in unloading your rubbish, they are polite, and the place is...

    The age pension

    Point taken, but you don't plan for when you have departed this planet. This is where HMG steps in and you are in no position to do anything about it if they decide to move the goal posts. It is enivitable that the government will have to raise more money to care for an increasing elderly...

    Why are my posts Deleted!!

    I had 2 posts recently deleted, the second one was for asking why the first one was deleted. All I received before it was locked was a sarcastic comment from some jumped up moderator who didn't even have the guts to identify him/her self. I am beginning to see why a lot of contributors to this...

    Talking of rudeness

    Whilst I agree with you to a certain extent, would you expect somebody who called in your shop and asked for advice on various types of flooring to give you their names before asking a question.? I personally don't like those pushy types who insist on calling me by my first name when they have...

    Pension calculation

    Masona, I think that you will find that you cannot get anymore than 2/3 rds of your final salary as a pension. Therefore as you say if you have been there for 40 years and your pension is based on 1/60th for each year of service you will receive the maximum of £6666 pa. This will be reduced...

    Re the lack of prison space, I'm pretty sure it's been thought of already, but just in case it hasn't, why don't the prison authorities release other prisoners early. Even if it is only by a couple of weeks, this would create the necessary space, wouldn't it. ? Or am I missing something and...

    Jade Goody

    What do you think about the kerfuffle on CBB This is the first time I have watched it, and I admit mainly because of the media comments on the racial insults and bullying by Jade and her gang. After watching her being interviewed today, I am of the opinion that she wasn't being rascist. As...
