Re: Baffling local news stories

Woman ignores cooking instructions on Tesco Edamame beans, complains about becoming ill as a result and gets an "insulting" £10 voucher. Goes on to complain that Tesco should add a warning to the packaging to clarify that they're unsafe to eat raw - won't somebody think of the children?! - even thou...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Is that maybe supposed to the the Lake Vyrnwy dam? If so, maybe that is part of the Crown Estate? Not sure that a copyright notice is necessary on something like that, though!

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

The Newcastle Airport one is run by SSP. I was quite surprised when it opened that M&S would be up for franchising out their brand like that - doesn't strike me as a very "M&S" thing to do, but maybe the same is true of some of their other travel locations too?

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

In response to Skygeek's weird claim that Sky News doesn't speculate on pregnancies and would only report on the breakdown of 4 specifically listed relationships (!), I made what I thought was a relatively innocuous post listing some of the many Sky News articles out of line with that position. Genu...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Sainsbury's wasting no time, planning to convert Homebase in Southport Meols Cop to a supermarket http://www.southportvisiter.co.uk/news/southport-west-lancs/new-southport-supermarket-could-early-11855432 That's probably unrelated to the takeover. A few stores are still leased or subleased from JS ...

Re: The next big leader?

Of course the difference is the leader of the opposition doesn't tend to be the party leader who lost the last election anyway, so you'd keep having elections under your proposed system. I'm not proposing a system, just pointing out a logical fallacy. If the argument is put that there must be a gen...

Re: The next big leader?

Because he Leader of the Opposition's mandate will be tested at the next General Election (as to whether they become PM or not)? That's their mandate to be PM - What about their mandate to be Leader of the Opposition? Clearly, the Opposition can have a substantial impact on Government policy, and I...

Re: The next big leader?

My view has always been that, regardless of the fact that we don't directly elect the prime minister, it has to be acknowledged that the decision to vote for a constituency MP will depend at least partly on what the party wants to do nationally, and that is shaped by the leader and it is that leade...
