Re: Currys PC World Dixons Carphone Warehouse Team Knowhow to become "Currys"

Manchester's White City branch has had the rebrand for at least a couple of weeks now. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Currys/@53.462365,-2.2829685,3a,75y,90t/data=!3m8!1e2!3m6!1sAF1QipPX3H5xNjoHbwQfA_kZjGdBz-lEG9R4gmUeeJzL!2e10!3e12!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipPX3H5xNjoHbw...

Re: Mystery Bags and official food waste thread

I got two veggie burritos from BarBurrito for £5.20 the other day.

I may get a veggie carvery for £3.50 next week.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

There was someone being interviewed on the news earlier about it, and how she has brain fog and feels tired all the time etc, and I couldn’t help but wonder if it was just the consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle that she was describing. Am I a bad person for thinking that? It’s not a criticism o...

I guess it's descriptive of their economic state?

Re: Govt/NHS Digital plan to share patient data

I’m not particularly savvy with stuff like this. We’re assured that data will be anonymous - if so what’s the issue? I've read several reports that it will be incredibly easy to deanonymise the data. Groups of GPs are campaigning against this sharing, partly on these grounds. https://www.theguardia...

Govt/NHS Digital plan to share patient data

Are people aware of the NHS Digital plan to share patient data? We have until June 23rd to opt out if we don't want our data shared. Guardian article on the plan: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/may/30/gps-warn-plans-share-patient-data-third-parties-england More info about opting out: https...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Derby's shopping centre, formerly Westfield and Intu is undergoing a name change and rebrand. I was fully expecting them to revert to the pre-westfield name of 'Eagle Centre' but the new owners have gone a bit left field with DERBION. The logo reminds me of a certain ITV region's idents in the late...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

The Nottingham one is similarly disorienting, uneven levels with short sets of steps everywhere, quite easy to find that you're on a completely different floor to the one you thought you were on. Beautiful exterior but not a pleasant shop at all. It'll make a great hotel I hope. The Hotel Californi...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

That's not an easy decision, despite what people on both sides claim, and the value judgment involved makes me believe it should be put to a referendum as to which side of this balance policy should skew. Agree with a lot of what you say, but a referendum? Seriously? One of them has never ended up ...
