Gibraltar is lovely although word of warning, make sure if you have any Gibraltar banknotes, spend them in Gibraltar! I had one and couldn't spend it in the UK and no UK bank would change it!

I'd be fascinated to know how many sales Thomas Cook made in its final few days (travel money aside). Surely it was close to zero?
It was reported that one couple paid the balance of their holiday of £2,700 just before the business closed on the Friday afternoon... in cash!

Re: End of MAY

Just a thought and I don't know if it would be possible. The day before the new leader is announced, could May go to Buckingham Palace and ask for permission to dissolve Parliament trigging a General Election? It is said that the Queen doesn't get involved really in politics and leaves that up to h...

My call would be Friday morning once the EU election results become clear.
Don't think we will know the result until Sunday when the polls close in the EU as they vote on Sunday.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I cannot believe anybody involved really thought there was a chance that it might be allowed, without a sale of a quarter to a half of the estate (which is surely the same as blocking any such deal practically). Leaves Sainsbury's in a hole, for sure. I bet one of my local branches are relieved tha...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Going back to HMV, if Ashley gets the business, I won't be surprised if he moves some of those small HMV stores that are in the same town as a House of Fraser or even a large Sports Direct into those stores. It's about utilising the space under utilised in those HOF department stores. It can be don...
