'kin Now Broadband raising their prices (including for in contract customers) six weeks after I joined them.

Means I can leave penalty free but it's just a right ballache and such a shady practice that they're allowed to do this.

You received the same email as me today then.
After a (very brief) look at prices elsewhere, they still seem the cheapest, so Iím staying put. Pain in the ass though.

Rang them (and queued for the best part of an hour) and they've offered to halve the increase, which is better than nothing but £24 for an hour's work is hardly stellar value either...

Celebrating 30 years of mediocrity with the launch of vodka!

Just makes our lowly position in L2 even more depressing!

And if any other team did it, such as oxford, we would be cringing at the thought.

Bit of a gimmick.

The price of a pint is now nearer £7 than £6.

London Town.

Even in Old Town it is over £6.

the average for a pint of lager where we live is nearer £4, but yeah London prices continue to be absolutely ridiculous. We have a work night out in Canary Wharf in 3 weeks, I had better get saving!

Whilst on the subject of beers, our local is a cracking real ale pub (that also has Beavertown and ABK on tap if you fancy fizz) that had Entire Stout on the last time we went. Last time I had it was in the Glue Pot, a lovely pint.

I paid £6.20 for a pint of Birra Morreti in Whitley (outside Melksham) last week.  Crash

2 pints can still be had in Chorlton for under a fiver. It's not all grim up north!

Adds up though as I suspect you have to buy some for the wheelies too!

I very rarely use Facebook but my wife had put a recent holiday picture up which had received a certain number of likes. So out of curiousity/nosiness went to have a look. Weirdly the only posts that I can see on her profile are the ones that I have been tagged in. She spent over an hour checking all the security settings etc and hadn't blocked me from anything, and I couldn't see anything that I might have done in error.

Any social media experts here that can suggest what might be the problem? I don't believe I have this issue with any of my other Facebook 'fwends'.

The wife may have excluded you in error? Check the drop down list.
