Re: Brexit

Labour’s still practicing the same position of cluelessly avoiding open goal after open goal of opportunity. Literally any other leader of this party would be leading them to an extraordinary victory at another general election. What a shame they’re still lumped with this abominable leader at such ...

After launching Jack's, Tesco have now lurched to the other extreme and is considering launching a chain of high end convenience shops to take on M&S Simply Food.

Re: Front door legalities

Oh you don't have to display one. It's more displaying a potentially "inaccurate" one that's the issue. There is a road I know of in Plymouth which has several terraces of houses on it which were built at different times and originally all had separate names and therefore were separately numbered. ...

Re: Mays on the way out

Who honestly thinks a different PM is going to manage this debacle any better? At least they could pick a direction and try and try to convince a majority to follow with it being clear what they do and do not stand for. Either go for a remainer's brexit with a deal being mandatory with second refer...

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

This has now sent me down a path of Tesco logo geekery. Firstly, I'm amazed the current logo has lasted so long and hasn't changed, I think it's aged very well - though I imagine the surrounding brand elements and packaging from that time look quite old now. Secondly, there's a Tesco Metro in Brist...

Re: Brexit

Also, it’s inappropriate to describe a People’s Vote as a re-run (language like “second referendum” plays into this). It is a vote on a final set of options, which were explicitly not known or set out when the initial referendum was held. As I've said before, I think a multi-stage referendum where ...

Re: Brexit

It's been pointed out quite a bit in the last few days (why it's taken so long is a mystery to me) that while leave may have had the biggest vote in history, due to the fragmentation of that vote, between no-deal f*** the EU and socialist wonderland bring on the red tape, remain actually holds the ...

Re: Brexit

the Remain campaign should really have made a stronger case out of these facts. The remain campaign, otherwise known as "the agents of project fear"... They tried to (evidently not very successfully) but just got accused of scaremongering by the leave side, who would of course never do such a thing...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

It's an odd world where Trafford Centre and Meadowhall won't have an HMV but Mansfield Four Seasons will. Personally, I think there was no strategy as to which branches will stay and go in terms of coverage, but the actual strategy was entirely around disposing of stores with the longest leases. I ...

Re: Windows 9 is now Windows 10

Having spent 3 and a half years making almost no headway with Edge, Microsoft are killing it off (sort of). Windows will continue to ship with a browser called Edge, but it will be a Chromium-based browser (which according to some sources will even support Google Chrome extensions). it will not be a...
