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

Newspaper endorsements don't have the clout they used to. The Sun knows the Tories are out and would rather back the winner than who they ideologically agree with.

The current SELs I can read with my glasses off, but I'd have to take my reading glasses for those new ones, although I can read the prices without.

Re: With all the recent inflationary price rises, is there stuff you just won’t pay for now?
