    I kid you not but once when local businesses were pushing for public toilet facilities to be provided in a town, to encourage visitors, it was voted down by local councillors because they didn't see why local people should have to pay for toilets that wouldn't be used by local people.
    (It wasn't Royston Vasey it was in Northants)

    That's the problem with things like that they take off then there's not enough rejected stuff to meet demand.
    Biscuit manufacturers can actually have to smash up biscuits deliberately to meet broken biscuit demand, I shit you not.

    People tend to look at the spires of Oxford and forget it's got Blackbird Leys.

    B&M don't really buy much genuine clearance so the bargains aren't as real the product is imported direct and made to the price point and margins are much more usual ie you are getting a cheap version of a branded or regular item rather than the branded/regular version cheap although of course an importer's margin is stripped out. Same story with The Range although they import much less directly. Buyology is a very small chain born out of ex-Cardworld wholesale people, in Bristol, that traded on the high st as Cardmarket stores as a fair-sized SW based chain. They do buy a lot of genuine clearance and did also as Cardmarket. 
    Trago do buy some clearance but less and less, which is the same everywhere as regular everyday lines that can be repeat ordered are much easier to manage from an inventory and merchandising point of view. The main difference with Trago, and why they have traditionally been such good value, is they do put a very low margin on, much lower than the industry average enabled by owning property freeholds. The problem is suppliers know this and can tend to load the prices if they sell into Trago because otherwise it disrupts their core market.

    I think Chasers has always been Bristol's roughest club by some margin from what I gather. Oddly the shopping area is not too bad in Kingswood, in the day, certainly no worse than some districts of other major cities, but is terrible at night and it's widely considered Chasers and its clientele is the problem although there's Wetherspoons and some other pubs there nearby.
    According to a local who bent my ear one day, although all sorts of factories had closed over the years, it all went downhill in Kingswood when much further back they got rid of the trams. It had the tram depot for the city there, I think, so there was fast ready access to the city centre. When the trams went it became kind of isolated with less travel either way. Seems very short-sighted getting rid of the tram infrastructure but clearly there was a co-ordinated pro motor car agenda in the background.

    It’s where the download I linked to came from he kept it up whilst it was busily being expunged from YouTube/Liveleak etc.
    He’s hopelessly naive, and a fool to pull the tail of the tiger though, it was a force higher up than NZ pulling it from the streaming sites the same one that immediately disappears anything related to the Bulger killers or anyone else in witness protection etc.
    I think, like Kim Dotcom, he’ll find national borders are largely a conceit to pacify indigenous populations.
