Not a serious paper so any comments that are factual are ignored by algorithms that detect certain words or censors. I am banned as my comments are no longer acceted and they refuse to answer my e mails. Just right wing scum in the end.

BBC News - ‎1 hour ago‎
The House of Lords is the "best day-care centre for the elderly in London", a Lib Dem peer says in a new BBC documentary.


And just who do you all believe are having to keep these old decrepit dribbling wasters in the Lords?

Your article is the typical views of an office shirt and tie, ass kissing, knob jockey. Your mother must be proud of you, picking a career in 'The Modern Day Slave Trade'.

1. You do charge us a fee. As you do not pay us anywhere near the full rate of pay that you receive for OUR labour, while YOU sit in an office drinking coffee all day whilst advertising how great your slave trade is.
2. Companies recruiting agency staff are given tax benefits depending on their usage throughout the working year. This is why companies pay agencies well over the minimum wage. Because they get it back through tax loopholes. Where as YOU only pay your slaves minimum wage with no overtime regardless of which shift pattern. This is why nobody can find full time vacancies outwith agency work.
3. Agencies are protected by the government because they are believed to be helping unemployment, when in actual fact they are adding to the problem. The reason there are so many agencies out there, is because there are so many jobs out there. WE just cant get to them because of the 'MODERN DAY SLAVE TRADE' that is agency work.
4. You work for US. If the slaves were to have an uprising. The economy would suffer and the Government would have to rethink there plan for the slave trade. Remember that, while you sit in your heated office, drinking coffee and looking down your shit stained nose at us.
5. You and your office knob jockeys are the scum of the fucking earth. Yous are the reason nobody wants to work in this country and yous are the reason Great Britain is no longer Great anymore. I'd live in the streets before I lined your pockets. You arrogant fucktard.

Thank you for posting this information, I've just been contacted by this company and you've saved me a lot of time and possibly money. I always check these sort of companies, the ones that always seem to offer the "free holiday or competition win" and its true you never get something for nothing. You will always get this type of "scam" and it annoys me that the people working for them could be conning the vulnerable, what if it was their grandparents being duped? I hope they call again as I love wasting their time and preventing them bothering someone else.

I left talk talk 18 months ago and I am being bombarded with calls saying I have a problem with their router. I have told them 22 times to remove my name from their records. Had another call today saying they have checked my router and its being used outside my home. They told me they have the right to check my router. I have had to purchase a new phone to block their calls. Of course they got to check nothing. Told a very rude Henry not ring again. 23 time.

Ok, this is my analysis of Aldi.
* the fresh food is good quality
*The fresh fruit and vegetables are a good price but they do with upping their range a little
* The freezer stuff, particularly the Specialty range is excellent quality
*Cleaning range, particularly the laundry products are of low quality. Washing up liquid is of low quality

The shopping experience itself.
Go in there with the knowledge that it will be to the point. Put your shopping in your trolley, have your big bags at the ready. I have three, and just keep up with the till operator. Pay and out to enjoy the rest of your day. If you enjoy a more leisurely pace, try Tesco. I wouldn't advice shopping at Aldi if you're not physically fit or unaware of the speed required of you at the tills. You will hate it. I am told, the reason for this is, the til operator has no choice, or they get fired. So there's absolutely no point getting on their backs. They're just doing their jobs.
Will I shop at Aldi for all of my groceries. No, but only because it's quite limited on variety and, as mentioned above, the cleaning products don't come up to scratch.

Park and ride tickets are returns from the park and ride into town so I couldn't get a return from the town to the park and ride as that is not what park and ride tickets at for.
Regarding what was said about Oxford park and ride being tosh just because you haven't experienced any problems shows you don't accept what goes on around what you don't know about. That is what idiots do to brighter people they don't understand - treat them as wrong because it is beyond their intelligence. That is the mentality you are demonstrating.

If any of you are interested there's a petition to keep Sounds of the Sixties on Radio 2 at 8 - 10am instead of 6 - 8am here

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/691/996/325/return-quot-sounds-of-the-sixtiesquot-to-8am-saturday-morning/

The BBC must be mad if they think we want to get up at 6am on a Saturday! They say "If it’s too early for some listeners, they can listen again to the programme via the BBC iPlayer." Well, I've just spent £100 on a good quality radio for the kitchen, I'm not about to start listening to the radio on the inferior speakers of my laptop on an internet connection which is a bit slow at the best of times!

My employer is same. I'm repeatedly ask how im travelling all day. They provide no chairs for lunch, a fridge so small for the coffee machine (installed to keep u working). No one stops for morning or afternoon tea unless u count this time to make a cup of tea. It is written in my contract that i am salary paid only thirty eight hours n must work 40 with half n hr unpaid lunch break. When i would goby o comments would be oh u want lunch which they no longer ask me as of course I want a break my arse is knumb from not moving. But no this wasnt good enough with my manager requesting me do extra at five fifteen when knock off is five that was going to take me an extra half hr to do it right. I obviously refused. Than my manager got into a habbit to request extra of me at five to five. Whilst working i am continually interrupted to do something which takes u out of the area u r in, which is really poor management. Than u have a look at their procedures n asked to follow their procedures to find out other staff to meet deadlines completley ignored all fundamentals of accounting n didnt even run the procedures to lodge statutory requirements which can only be incorrect as the work wasnt done to get to lodgement stage, wow. Besides being micro managed by my manager u have the owner boss who tells me it is more than reasonable to expect me to do two hrs extra every week under a salary n he was very angry that i refused to do it any longer. Than tried to validate my feelings for me when i said its exhausting me telling me that two hrs extra every wk is not exhausting me. Where i work payroll is one of the jobs for clients, the boss tried to compare my paid rate with the minimum award of 18 per hour: so now im sick with a cold as the stress of listening to him and working in freezing conditions is sickening. U cant grade the work i am doing with the minimum of 18 per hr n tell me im paid well above that. U grade by the award im under n the level of work that im doing that aligns with by that award. I havent actually been paid this low since i was 23 n now ive got 18yrs experience with what im doing! Added to this i have a pension card that said i didnt have to work fulltime until i got better n this man tries to screw out everything he can from you that his already made me sick...added to this ive never felt so undervalued in all my life working. So its best i leave before im fired since i already know i work hard n i want to work where things are done correctly not rushed.

Tony Blair has been absent from British politics for years, now - but today he returned in spectacular style, urging the UK's population to "rise up" against Brexit.


Blair is just another mouth piece for a terrified EU. Empires within the master classes are crumbling, and they know it, but as the saying goes, a drowning man will clasp at anything to survive. BREXIT has started a chain reaction around European countries and questions are being asked by the populace " We also would be better off outside this mess". The EU was formed for the rich to control their empires.

My fiancée set up a talk talk tv and broadband account via a street urchain (my words). She was with a friend at the time (who never set up an account) but was silly enough to allow the salesman to do a credit check. Anyway the long and short of it is, recently my fiancée was checking her bank statement when she noticed talk talk were taking two separate payments from her. She phoned the customer service line only to get some ca;; centre in Delhi, after days of phoning and being given the run around, she finally got someone in Britain on the line. The run around continued for a further two weeks, with excuses and accusations coming from talk talk. now they have admitted to setting up an account in my fiancées friends name, but! wait for this.... both accounts are at my fiancées home (a one bedroom flat), talk talk owe my fiancée well over £2000 but have only offered to pay her £30 as a good will gesture. The case is now in the hands of the ombudsman.... Folks if you are thinking of a broadband and tv package, DO NOT GO WITH talk talk, you will regret it....

Unreasonable conditions:

Not being able to give you the costs up front for a extended trip longer than their standard policy allows.

Trip length limits in policies on standard trips are far too short.

Age limits in an era when we are all living much much longer

Medical condition restrictions for conditions which happened more than 5 or 7 years prior, and for which one has been declared by the medics as clear of the condition.

The insistence that one records trivial, almost irrelevant medical conditions.

The insistence that one must have a return ticket back home booked [and paid for] before one commences a journey/trip.

Not being able to take out a resonably costed travel insurance after one has commenced a journey.
