It began with Austerity measures which collapsed everything it touched upon, followed closely by Brexit lies, a disastrous NI trade arrangement (the so so-called NI Protocol), which was followed by partying at 10 Downing Street while people died and yet more lies pilled on with various statements to Parliament including the late Queen, closely followed by some 80 thousand people (I thought we lived in a democracy - plainly we do not) who created an Parliamentary executive which has according to many economic experts embarked on a discredited economic plan (trickle-down economics, and the enrichment of those already swimming in it) which is trashing the economy of the nation. What a nation...

One would like to believe this is the case. It would seem an odd thing to invent but could it be a misunderstanding or Putin manoeuvring to gain some advantage?https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-62965993

A lovely weekend as always in Putney.A spare hour on Sunday morning. I like Sunday shopping as it's free parking. Yes I need my car as I have three kids and we carry alot of bags etc. Also it means I don't stop at the pub as I'm driving rather than walking.Shopping list . Shoes for daughter. Present for a baby and my new goddaughter. Some sports accessories for the boys.Ben and Lola - first stop in Putney Exchange. Excellent choice and lovely style. Always a discount sales rack in store as well. Doesn't need to be expensive. Bought exactly what I needed and present went down very well.Clark's - One of Britain's greatest shoe retailers. They are well located on the High Street a ground and basement sales area. Got the school shoes I needed , great service, well run shop, pay a little more but good quality shoes.Sportsdirect - back of Putney Exchange. 2 footballs for 9 quid. Required for my boys as they keep hitting them into orbit.I would've gone to Sporting Feet on Lacy Road if I needed sports shoes. They are one of the best around and we are lucky to have them as well.Pet Shop - There is one on the High Street , yes I bought some treats for the dog.Last weekend I needed a book for my dad. I went to Waterstones. In the Exchange. They have a lot of books to choose from in a good environment. I needed some helium balloons. I went to The Works and I then got a card from Card Factory. They were opposite one another.I could've gone to Wilko, my favorite shop. You can get anything in Wilkos. I could've got my wife a present from Oliver Bonas. I did that a few weeks back. Some lovely ladies clothing in there as well. New large sized store.I didn't get a gift from Farrago or Huttons. I should've done.On my way home I fancied some fruit, so I went into the new fruit and veg shop on LRR. Only been open a couple of weeks but looks a very good addition. Last Friday , I needed some nutritional advice, I went into Revital on High Street. I got a personal service and bought some products to sort my back pains out.The message is. There is plenty out there, just use it and don't moan. There is also a TK Maxx and H&M they're massive fashion retailers. Alot of people love them. Not everyone but we are lucky to have them.Nick

If this Budget fails, then I think we will see the collapse of the U.K. Economy. I wanted to see the energy companies taxed but it hasn’t happened. I don’t want to see the poorest suffer, they are suffering great hardship.

My wife's large brown leather handbag was snatched from our car yesterday. If anyone sees a bag like this dumped in a front garden (i gather that's what thieves do when they've rifled through) in the vicinity of burstock road / montserrat road, please let me know.

We were previously with SSE and recently we were moved to OVO Energy without us having a choice in the matter.
It has been a shambles and I am struggling to understand the bills. The first lot of paperwork that I received in April was incorrect, showing 2 amounts for payment. I phoned OVO and asked which amount was correct. The young man worked it out on a calculator and told me what to pay, which I did there and then. A few days later I received a letter to say the amount I had paid was incorrect and there was a small amount outstanding. I have paid it.
Our old bills were in joint names with my husband, but were sent to me as Martin! Guy only. I asked for them to be in our joint names, but OVO haven’t managed it yet.
Today, I received a letter “IMPORTANT: Call us about your debt today”. I rang OVO to ask what it was for. It is nothing to do with the opening bill, but evidently we are now being paid monthly instead of quarterly. No bill with a breakdown of charges, nothing. We didn’t submit a meter reading to receive this.
Anyone having similar problems with OVO?

Has anyone else in SW15 had issues with Royal Mail deliveries as of late?I've been waiting on two deliveries that were due for delivery last Wednesday - they've lied about both, saying "delivery attempted, no answer", but both scans happened at the exact same time on different days, and no one bothered knocking at those times.I know there are delays at the moment, but I'm a little concerned at the complete lack of update from them?
