Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Whatever you may think of Mike Ashley, those stores would be better in his hands than the current Debenhams management. Are there any results that show that House of Frazer is doing any better since they started stocking Lonsdale and Slazenger stuff piled high across the store? If anything it’d put...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Like you say there are two levels of panic buying Those who are buying enough stuff to last until Christmas And then those who having seen the shortages, are buying one more of stuff to have in stock. For example you’d be taking a big risk leaving it until you are on your last roll of toilet paper b...

I’d say “at least it’s not as bad as Oneness” used as a punchline in every thread stopped being funny a while back as well.

The BBC Three returns as a TV channel thread took an impressively short amount of time to descend into fantasy TV channel/schedule hell.
As soon as it was suggested that BBC One should reduce to broadcasting about 7 hours a day, I was out.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I don’t understand why JKDerry, who is from Derry in Northern Ireland after all, insists on using TVForum for discussion of the Irish political landscape. Most members are clearly British-based so would have no idea about Irish politics! His question about Sinn Fein the other day was particularly n...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

What is JKDerry exactly? He writes these long posts where he seems to make out he knows what he's on about but it largely seems to be stuff he's read on TV Forum reworded into endless, repeating posts. You'd almost think he used to work in TV but I don't think he has and he's just making assumption...

Greggs have stopped putting the bit of plastic on top of a single doughnut to please Greta Thunberg. The problem is now the icing sticks to the paper bag and rips off :(

Also worth noting that many of the CAA chartered flights have been crewed by former Thomas Cook staff who have worked for free to get passengers home.
Why would they not be paid by the CAA?

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I wonder if they will keep it entirely separate, as I can not imagine Jack Wills being sold in Sports Direct, or indeed any Sports Direct stuff sold in a Jack Wills.
