Re: Rising cost of living

Yeah, substitutions drive me crazy. A lot of the time you wanted that specific thing and not a rival product. No? No Daily Mail? Yeah is Milka Instead. We don't have Crunchy Nut Cornflakes so here are some normal Cornflakes, same thing right?

You can turn substitutions off - for specific items, or all items.

"Is Asda still accepting Blue Light Card?

Customers who qualify can now use the discount until 31 December 2022".

Then their post New Year strikes might make them less of a group to support?

It's hard work persecuting people who are just trying to get on with their job. why don't they do some real policing?

Maybe because "Highways England Traffic Officers" aren't Police Officers, but civilian employees of the Highways Agency?

No Xmas party. No free alcohol

What's the point of having an expenses account?
