Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Just saw an ad on ITV for Sharps wardrobes. "Offer ends Bank Holiday Monday!" - ahem, that's yesterday, so why is this ad still on air?

Just read in the paper that Yorkshire and Cyldesdale Banks are being rebranded as Virgin Money.
This was announced, widely reported and discussed here a year ago.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I think you’ve made the case for why they haven’t closed one down yet.
