Re: Another UK pension hit.

I have to live 26 weeks a year in NZ, if I want the pension all year.. overstay the 26 weeks overseas by a couple of days, and I have to pay the whole years pension back, not just the couple of days..so feel pleased with what you got. It is not a question of feeling pleased or not, when you have pa...

Re: Another UK pension hit.

I particularly wonder about the fresh food, meats and fish, always a lot on display but very expensive and no one buying , what happe...

Re: For crying out loud...

As I stated before HISTORY is written by the victors ......... Did they do a DNA test on Hitler and Eva Braun to prove the bodies were actually theirs or are we relying on the word of the victors to tell us? Did they not kill all the top ranking Nazis who actually had the proof? What happened to th...

Re: For crying out loud...

One small point KP is that what "History" teaches us is that the Victors were good and those defeated were bad, which is unsurprising as it is ALWAYS the victors that get to write the HISTORY down :-k RUBBISH. What history teaches us is that good will always defeat evil, eventually, that's why th...

Re: Yamazaki bakery.

They actually have a sign up now, stating opening 2019, so fingers crossed it will happen. The location of the new shop is between the large Food Hall and Watson’s the chemists. Actually that is the place that has been the subject of the dispute for so long, they don't want to be tucked away in the...
