Re: The rise of the dodgy shop

Aspartame is classified as an IARC group 2B substance. This same group also includes applying talcum powder to your gooch and mobile phones. It is a lower category than drinking beverages of over 65 °C and working night shifts. The result of this classification was no change to the acceptable daily ...

Re: The Technology Thread

My employer was heavily affected for a day and this morning until the fix could be applied. I was, thankfully, not at work yesterday. A lot of the news coverage was regarding travel, and food retail chains were relatively unaffected, so I get why a lot of people might not have noticed the impact. Ad...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

623058/Barcode/Milkshake is really talking out of his arse in the elections thread. Short of the BBC displaying their graphics on Clive Myrie's forehead, I'm not sure any changes they'd made to the presentation would be enough for him not to declare it lazy.

Re: There an election this year.....

I've had the biggest variety of leaflets I can remember for a General Election. Unusually, for my area, I've also seen a number of Labour posters, and not a single Conservative one. I also can't think of anyone I've spoken to who has said they'll vote Conservative, including at least one lifelong vo...

I like Number 3 the best out of those.

Isn't one account enough for most people?

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Morrisons have introduced some smaller plastic trollies and wheeled baskets at all stores I believe, alongside the child trollies. They don't seem to have reduced the number of metal trollies at my local Morrisons in response, however.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Whereas my local Tesco is flush with new trollies introduced in time for a recent Scan as you Shop upgrade.

Indeed, my nearest Sainsbury's and Morrisons seem to have an abundance of trollies, if the latter are a bit worse for wear.

Re: There an election this year.....

I’d be amazed if it’s anything other than a healthy Labour majority. I don’t really buy the whole argument about too big a swing needed etc - the mood of the country is pretty clearly against the Tories right now I believe that the idea a large swing would be required is based on old data and is no...

Re: There an election this year.....

I don't think that we will have a Conservative Government, come the 4th of July I'm not sure what course of events could cause there not to still be one up to and including the morning of the 5th. Through a huge coincidence, everyone in the nation forgets to vote, except one voter in Newcastle who ...
