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

Indeed The Sun have endorsed Labour at the 11th hour. I wonder how long that front page has been waiting in the wings for 'Time for a new manager (and we don't mean sack Southgate' reads awfully like the big sports news is supposed to be England out of the Euros, but we're still (somehow) in them. ...

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

Whilst I hate the paper, I'm a little surprised the S*n haven't endorsed anyone yet. Which suggests, they're expecting a Labour victory but aren't feeling too strongly about endorsing them. There's reports The Sun will never endorse Labour with Starmer as leader when he was DPP during the phone hac...

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

Not even been a week and the Tory campaign has gone horribly. National service? Are they trying not to get votes or something? Young people won't vote for them because they won't want to do it. And that's the crowd they need to vote for them. The all powerful under-18 vote? Stuff sure is different ...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

I posted in the BBC Yorkshire and Lincolnshire news thread with a link about one of the weather presenters quitting Look North. They deleted it and gave me a warning, and then someone else posted the same news with no source or comment. Needless to say, I reported the new post too - if I deserved a ...

I believe so. Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, Cheeseburger, Double Cheeseburger, and Hamburger, I think. McPlant already was different to the others.

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

That'll change when the Virgin Money takeover goes through. I can't see them keeping branches of both open long term if they're close to each other. Probably the reason their promise is only to 2026, two years from now.

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

Nationwide's ad campaign has been banned by the ASA for claiming that they weren't closing branches when they are.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Why would a reopened store need a temporary sign? Wouldn't the old one usually only be taken down when someone else takes over the premises? If this one was a Wilko before and has just been closed since the chain went bust, it shouldn't need a new sign, as the old one should already say Wilko on it...
