Re: Energy bills: How spanked will YOU get?

To borrow a chart from the Daily Mail, Ovo is one of the four challenger brands to the Big Six, so should be safer than one of the many smaller utility companies showed below. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/Martin%20Phillp/48186653-10008673-image-a-1_1632212474115.jpg As well as the branding and cate...

Re: Energy bills: How spanked will YOU get?

Personally I’ll be getting spanked. We rent an all electric flat so have to be savvy about cheap tariffs. Similar situation over here. Our fixed deal with Octopus ended in May. At the time, its variable tariff was the best on the market, by quite a bit. Its customer service by email is fine, so dec...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

My local...Local had the same treatment last week. It's a pretty unpleasant colour up close. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/052021/1621803873_290399604.jpg Its branding has been on a downward trajectory ever since the introduction of that superfluous swirl under the logo. Can't stand the custom font ...

Interested to see which become Superstores vs Express. Based on store size alone or other factors?

I fear they have been lost in a forest somewhere and still think it is October 2002.

Re: BBC Radio Wolverhampton

Unless I'm missing something, the trial stations don't seem to be available on BBC Sounds? DAB and isolated web browser link online? Missed opportunity to communicate the launch and gauge uptake.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

But what more is there to say other than 'Jane Hill is presenting the Ten tonight', which IMO isn't that interesting in and of itself? All you can follow that up with is speculation on why she's doing it and shift patterns and so on. Agreed. "BBC newsreader reads news on BBC News bulletin"...
