Its true, those living on social welfare in the UK, get treated better that the Brits who have worked /retired and decided to move overseas to live out their lives. To freeze the pensions of t...

Re: Welcome to Tha Naam Restaurant (Sponsor)

I do sometimes go to restaurants without air con, but rarely by choice, we went here on an invite from a gentleman who posts on here quite a bit, we had a lovely time, it wasn't a hot evening, the hosts are very welcoming and the food was better than most and if you haven't been here I'd recommend ...

Re: UDON TAP (Sponsor)

The keyboard snipers and gossips are a reason why some sponsors tend to keep mum on UM. These sponsors have their regular customers and they have other avenues for news updates and advertising. If someone has a complaint, it is always best brought up directly with the sponsor, in person at the poin...

I believe the Tap stopped being a UM sponsor about 6 months ago. Hence no updates.
The topic heading quite clearly shows in big letters "Sponsor" so who are we to believe, but in any case do you have to be a sponsor to reply to other members questions.?
