B&Q is the last place I'd go to for hardware etc nowadays. Builders merchants (and indeed Screwfix, Plumb Center etc) are generally much cheaper and don't have those wretched automated check-outs that I won't use on principle.


Remember OurPrice Records? As soon as they'd put all the independent record shops out of business they rapidly became RRP Records. It's the same in all walks of life. I think Costa Coffee is well named too .

Re: To Speed Or Not To Speed

So much of this is surely down to shareholders demanding ever increasing profits, totally unsustainable yet what’s wrong with a healthy ongoing profit every year, you know, kinda keeping up with inflation instead of causing it!

Re: To Speed Or Not To Speed

It's amazing how a thread that originally concerned EU legislation about fitting speed limiters on cars can drift so far of topic. At least Brexit hasn't found it's way in.............................. yet
