Thanks for that. I've still been too engrossed in the White House shitshow to follow the less interesting No 10 version.

Re: Brexit

Anyone suspect there might be some sort of Brexit compromise deal about to appear? That's the only thing I can think of that's so enraged Cummings and his mate that they've left No. 10 this quickly.

Maybe I'm just being hopeful.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

comments on the post suggest the checkout process isn’t the best (lumped in with everyone else buying their plants). The checkout process in Dobbies must be akin to the final round of The Generation Game: Packet of cress seeds.... an ornamental figurine... Sainsbury's stonebaked pizza... a Christma...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Ha. I didn't realise how many shops outside Scotland are actually EWM branded. I genuinely thought they just sold tartan tourist tat, golfers jumpers and shortbread. Re the warehouses - as a kid, I would be dragged around one of those old mills whilst my mum picked out cardigans for all the elderly ...

In fairness, Subway also got a partial look in during Faisal's report on the Winter Economy Plan:

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I guess that's just it. Wondered if I was missing something more. Just realised there's five Prets in my city now (and another at the airport) but still easily dwarfed by numbers of Subway/Greggs.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

A bit puzzled by how much business coverage on the effects of the Coronavirus seems to involve comment on Pret. I know their business is badly affected by office workers no longer buying lunch and coffees, but so many independent shops, cafes, newsagents, dry-cleaners etc. are all facing the same is...

I took a photo of one to show you just how basic it is. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/Whataday/Screenshot%202019-04-09%20at%208_27_07%20PM.png This doesn't really suggest the sophisticated advertising for which the slogan is known.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

There's still enough good stuff there to keep me returning I agree, I particularly liked the recent set design and lighting thread. Also, some of the international presentation and classics threads interest me as it's obviously a quiet time for new presentation over here, and in general. I just don...
