Re: Fuel situation in your area

Looking around various news websites, the signage crisis is as severe as ever: https://up.metropol247.co.uk/scottishtv/pic_01_no_fuel.jpg (by Neil Hall/EPA on The Times) https://up.metropol247.co.uk/scottishtv/pic_02_no_fuel.jpg (by Getty Images on BBC) https://up.metropol247.co.uk/scottishtv/pic_03...

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

I wonder whether the rebranding and sell off of Xplore Dundee (formerly NX Dundee, formerly Travel Dundee) was done with the stagecoach merger in mind. Or if it’s just coincidence. It does look a bit like it was part of a plan. Quite funny for local management to suddenly be working for 'the other ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I see Highways England has re-branded as National Highways. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/scottishtv/logo_he.png >>> https://up.metropol247.co.uk/scottishtv/logo_nh.png However, the website URL redirects to https://highwaysengland.co.uk/ and the Traffic England website is all still Highways England b...

Re: Fuel situation in your area

I'd like to see supermarkets in the future having large format (A2 size or above) laser printers to make ad hoc signage, or for managers to be supplied with thick marker pens and big massive sheets of cardboard. A simple in-between option in terms of cost/professional appearance would be for the bi...

Re: Energy bills: How spanked will YOU get?

This is an excerpt from a longer piece in last week's Times about Avro Energy: Jake Brown, a 27-year-old former non-league footballer, founded Avro Energy in 2014 while studying law at Birmingham University. His father Andrew, 57, joined the business in 2017. The pair do not appear to have invested ...

Re: Fuel situation in your area

Can't help but think back to 2012 when tanker lorry drivers were threatening to strike. Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude told Sky News, "When it makes sense, a bit of extra fuel in a jerry can in the garage is a sensible precaution to take." Obviously that triggered panic-buying, some...

Re: Snack subscription services

I must admit I'm surprised Graze has lasted. I used to get these boxes delivered to my desk at work 12 years ago or so, but the initial excitement wore off and I could pick up cheaper snacks when I went out for lunch anyway. Same happened with my colleagues. Always thought their churn rate must be s...
