well isn't 90 % of the local population vegan ?

we don't have Greggs here we have to make do with proper Lincolnshire pork butchers with real meat I doubt there's more than 10 percent actual pork in those awful Greggs ones anyway

Unvaccinated people in ICU with covid.

It's not often that I agree with Tony Blair.

Sorry but I don't consider anything out of Blairs mouth credible

people have a choice and if they make the wrong one then it's their own fault

Blair is correct.

Unvaccinated people pass covid onto vaccinated people.

Well I fully agree they shouldn’t, however it is a fact that sadly many do.

drivers :roll:

xmas day is steady up to lunchtime quiet in the afternoon and usually kicks off around 16.30 and I reminded my drivers of this so one decides he wants to come in 12.30 he actually turned up at 13.20 by which time i had managed it all so i went home gave him the next couple of jobs then another driver in so at 16.15 he decides he's bored and goes home as soon as he did the phones started ringing and ringing for an hour or so I even had to turn work away

why are they so *^"!*^ impatient !

I don’t have too much sympathy for punters who have to wait, or not get their calls answered, on Xmas day when they could have pre booked days/weeks ago.

My experience of Xmas day is it is all or nothing.

the trouble is there are about 30 taxis crowded onto the rank and square or ranking up outside any pub that's open punters know that waiting for a taxi is one thing they won't have to do xmas day
