Off to Oz & Bali for a five weeker.
Enjoy yourselves, and sort out plenty of wins for me to celebrate.

Eloquent destruction of amber rudd by a UC claimant.
'I googled amber rudd last night. She's bought her daughter a £3m flat, and has a library and a wine cellar. What can she know about people like me?'
(The UC claimant was a 48 year old single mother. She'd had to give up work to care for her mother, who had now either died or gone into care. The claimant was going to be getting just over £900 a month for herself and her two children. From that she would have to pay £455 a month rent.)

He is no longer Spartacus.
Name and RIP in the title. Moving and appropriate comment in the post.
This is the correct format for reporting deaths, as approved by Phil. Any other approach is disrespectful.

"My advice to anybody to whom Boris is making promises - whether it is voters, world leaders, ministers, employees, or indeed family members - is to get it in writing, get a lawyer to look at it and make sure the money's in the bank,"

Somebody damaged one of our bollards at the weekend.
Fortunately the incident was captured on CCTV, and we've got the car details via ANPR.
So we'll be able to get the damage paid for via a County Court Judgement, which is nice.
We'll ban the perpetrator from all our stores as well.

“If we could learn to look instead of gawking,
We'd see the horror in the heart of farce,
If only we could act instead of talking,
We wouldn't always end up on our arse.
This was the thing that nearly had us mastered;
Don't yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!
Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,
The bitch that bore him is in heat again.”
― Bertolt Brecht, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui
