  • Today marks a BIG win in our fight to protect cash! As part of the Queen’s speech the government has pledged to introduce legislation this year that will finally protect our access to cash and face-to-face banking services.

Thank you for helping us achieve this critical win. More than 192,000 of you signed the petition, 24,000 of you emailed your MP and over 6,000 letters were sent to local papers. Your actions have made a difference. Together we have protected cash. Find out more about this big win and share the news with your friends and family. Protect cash win Thank you for your support,
  • I've spent a lot of time today trying to get the above programmes on Samsung TV, have tried automatic channel find at least twice, goes from Itv on 3 straight to 4999, missing out Ch. 1 and 2. Also terrestrial comes up in the top. It's ok on Panasonic recorder. Have also tried changing the Source button, also switching on/off. Reluctant to go to factory settings as will have to start entering again. They don't come up on programme guide either. Any idea where I 've gone wrong, please.
  • I cannot believe I have just read that Jay Blade has received an MBE - how utterly ridiculous. He's just a sprayer (as I've said before) of spray paint with so little talent. I love watching the Repair Shop but it's ruined for me by him doing zilch other than a little ironing of new material or - and only once have I seen this happen - putting some nails into the back of a cabinet. The Repair Shop is loved by all but he's not the reason, fgs. I'm truly shocked. No, I have never met him and have no wish to be called either judgmental or critical because that is how I feel about him.

  • I just caught the end of Your and Yours on car radio this morning when the subject was obviously cash or cashless. I appreciate I am vintage but two things stood out. A retired gentleman in Bournemouth who said he was quite happy using his smart phone for parking, didn't worry him that without one some couldn't park there, only annoyance was it cost £1.10 instead of £1 but that was fine, he found it very simple. Then mentioned going to the beach with his grandson and buying him an ice-cream - before him in the queue I gather were two youngsters clutching the cash who were refused an ice cream as the place didn't take cash. Being the magnanimous kind-hearted pensioner that he was, he bought them for the kids - as mother didn't have much English so he could understand her problem. He absolutely saw nothing wrong with the whole system that cash is becoming unacceptable - just as well they couldn't hear me shouting at the radio telling him what a snobbish patronising person he was. Also a lady doing voluntary work for a small animal charity saying that when she goes to collect the boxes, they now have very little in them as nobody carries cash anymore. Then she went on to say that they make a profit by holding events where there are tea and cake stalls, etc. which were largely going unsold as nobody carried cash. Was even asked if they took cards by some. A Travel man did say be sure to take some cash when abroad as they are still living normal lives where cash is acceptable (my words).
  • I've had this for a few years and always been OK with it. Now, after two weeks of many sites being blocked and 'greyed out' I have deleted it and things seem back to normal. It just seemed to start blocking everything, admittedly probably down to something I shouldn't have done - I don't know how as I have never really clicked on it in the past. Should I look for an alternative, not bother with anything or re-install in a couple of days. Thank you.
  • I'm trying to find something on Bromley Council website, no problem in getting there but when I click where I want to be it turns grey even after reloading. It's normal for a second then immediately turns grey again. Went onto tablet and have no problems on there. Have I inadvertently put a block on the site on this desktop, please. Thanks.
  • I've just been online to pay the above - which was £170 x 12 months - only to find that online it now reads £180 x 12 months. Obviously a change in the budget which I hadn't noticed. So just a reminder that road tax has also increased!

  • I purchased two wooden garden chairs from Ebay, main reason being that they were ready assembled, good price and very good reviews. Arrived last week by very helpful delivery driver who carried into garden. Then decided perhaps I should have ordered the lift-off table tray that can fit between the chairs and which could have been bought as a set anyway. Emailed the firm directly over weekend asking if they supplied tray separately, came back this morning and said to ring them to order. Which I did, to be told I could purchase directly on website but the tray wasn't there, only the complete set. So went back to them but problem with payment as I couldn't do a Bax(?) on mobile and they didn't take paypal or card over the phone. Anyway, long and short of it - next time they are in the area (from Stoke), will put on van and deliver for £5 and me to pay cash directly to the driver as they use their own transport. No idea when but who cares!

  • Message is on local Facebook that a police dispersal zone is being set up in local shopping centre with schools sending letters to parents advising their children not to go into Bromley tomorrow (Friday) night after school as water fights are planned. Apparently this has happened in many places recently (Bexley Heath/Birmingham, etc) but some pistols are being filled with bleach or acid so probably isn't just Bromley (and start of half term). Needless to say I am incapable of copying the article and letters but it seems it is becoming a very popular sport.
  • I've no wish to start another argument here but have just sent a fleecy throw and man's thermal beanie from Amazon's wish list via Save the Children to Ukraine. Hopefully will get to right destination. Have only just noticed it in case others are interested.
  • Was ok earlier, switched it off, when I switched on later no sound. Tried the mute button in case I had touched by mistake but nothing. Same with recorder. Under 8 months old. Is this a repair man job - even this tablet is playing up, woe is me.
  • Friends of mine made an appointment for yesterday at Civic Centre, Bromley for 4th booster, went and it was empty. I could kick myself at not going with them and turning up without an appointment, just didn't think about it at the time. Could have been because of Mother's Day and a Sunday, I suppose but they do keep saying wait until you are contacted.

  • P&O sacks EVERY crew member with immediate effect and uses agency staff to sail ships as it kicks baffled passengers off at ports amid huge row with unions over pay Existing staff can apply to the agency for work, in a move branded 'outrageous' by furious union leaders Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said his officials were in urgent talks with P&0 Ferries over the situation Firm operates four routes: Dover to Calais; Hull to Rotterdam; Liverpool to Dublin; and Cairnryan to Larne By RORY TINGLE, HOME AFFAIRS CORRESPONDENT FOR MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 09:59, 17 March 2022 | UPDATED: 11:57, 17 March 2022 P&O Ferries today made all its crew members redundant with immediate effect and replaced them with agency staff as it kicked baffled passengers off at ports amid a huge row with unions over pay. Existing employees can apply to the agency for work, in a move branded 'outrageous' by furious union leaders. One woman who said her father had lost his job accused P&O of a 'callous attack on working people'. Meanwhile, furious passengers scrambled to find alternative routes, with one Northern Ireland councillor unable to travel to a funeral because of the sudden disruption. The company said customers should continue to come to ports and they would be provided with alternative transportation. P&O Ferries - which operates four routes between the UK and Europe - ordered all its ships to return to port this morning to prepare for an announcement that would 'secure' its 'long-term viability'. Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union general secretary Mick Lynch earlier said there was 'growing speculation that the company were planning to sack hundreds of UK seafarers and replace them with foreign labour'. He added: 'We have instructed our members to remain on board and are demanding our members across P&O's UK operations are protected, and that the Secretary of State intervenes to save UK seafarers from the dole queue.' Transport Secretary Grant Shapps told the House of Commons this morning he was 'concerned' by the situation and his officials were holding urgent talks with bosses. It came as DUP MP Jim Shannon claimed in the Commons that nearly half of P&O Ferries is owned by a Russian business. 'I understand that 40% of the holdings of P&O Ferries is held by a Russian company,' he said. Three P&O ferries, Spirit of Britain, Pride of Canterbury and Pride of Kent moor up in the cruise terminal at the Port of Dover in Kent after the company suspended sailing P&O said it had halted operations ahead of a "major announcement" but insisted it is "not going into liquidation +5 Today confused customers took to Twitter to reveal the chaos they are facing after P&O's unexpected announcement today. One Northern Ireland councillor (top left) was unable to travel to a funeral because of the sudden disruption Mr Shapps said earlier today: 'I understand they have temporarily paused their operations and that's causing disruption at the short straits - Calais-Dover - as well as some other ports. 'I'm working with the Kent Resilience Forum and I've just instructed them to become intricately involved, and other partners in this, and we'll be taking steps later today - including ensuring that my officials will be having urgent discussions with P&O about the situation, particularly of concern for their workers.'

  • Premier League star Kurt Zouma could face an RSPCA probe after video (pictured left and right: Screengrabs of the footage) emerged of the footballer kicking and slapping a Bengal cat - as hundreds have now signed a petition calling for the charity to take action. The shocking footage shows the West Ham defender, 27, laughing as he chases the cat around his £2million London home. They video was taken on Sunday - the day after he appeared for the club in their FA Cup victory over non-league Kidderminster Harriers. Today the RSPCA, which has the power to prosecute in animal welfare cases, has commented on the footage, describing it as 'very upsetting'. And bosses at the charity told MailOnline they could launch an investigation, if a complaint is made. The RSPCA, whose prosecutions carry a maximum sentence of five-years in prison for the most serious of offences, did not reveal if any complaints had yet been made. However social media users have already flooded Twitter with complaints about the video, urging the RSPCA to take action.
  • University Challenge's original host Bamber Gascoigne dies at home after short illness aged 87 By JAMES GANT FOR MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 10:21, 8 February 2022 | UPDATED: 10:25, 8 February 2022 The original host of University Challenge Bamber Gascoigne has died aged 87 after a short illness. The TV presenter and author passed away at home in Richmond-upon-Thames, west London. Famously his dedication to University Challenge was so strong he would fact-check all the questions – and even rewrite them if they read poorly.

  • There are quite a few posts on local Facebook about a virus currently affecting dogs, not confined to just this area. Over the weekend about ten posts of dogs having to be rushed to vets for acute sickness and diarrhoea with some being kept in on drips. Also Crystal Palace Facebook posts. Advice is stay away from parks, etc. and be aware.
  • Car battery was totally flat last week, fortunately a friend took it out and away to charge then brought it back and refitted. I took it for a little drive yesterday and now have problems with the radio. I know I need to re-station which I will work on but the reception is so bad it's impossible to hear anything, it's as though there is no aerial reception and totally fuzzy. Therefore asking - is the radio connected to the battery via a wire that may have been dislodged? Car is old (Suzuki wagon) but always had fine reception before although never change station anyway. Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions, please?
  • I seem no longer have the ability to 'follow' on an opening post without going to the dots to the right and ticking 'follow discussion' there. A bit of a faff.
  • I've had problems with broadband going before Christmas, visits from Open Reach and EE, new master socket and router. Always had problems getting internet to smart TV but finally succeeded when upgraded to fibre last year when it became available. Now have another router but just cannot get internet to TV. Panasonic Tv said connected after putting code in but everything came up with - please connect to internet when I tried iPlayer/Netflix. Have now disposed of Panasonic (Gumtree, wasn't happy with it anyway) so need to buy a new smart TV. I'm wary of the same thing happening with any new one I purchase. I did try a booster but couldn't work it out and returned. Only about 12ft. distance between them. I appreciate I'm pretty useless technical-wise but I do know how to set up so don't think it's me. At this rate, will be moving the Tv into hall next to router to watch. Or moving. Any thoughts gratefully received. Find it also very annoying there is nothing between a 32" and 43"+ screen size - far too big for my little room (I know it's something to do with tube as I've looked it up).
  • Received this this morning from an old friend of mine who has lived in Cyprus for many years and now has (I think) dual nationality. I was supposed to have been in the UK now spending Christmas with my family, staying with R* and E* alternately returning home on 29th. A long story but I stayed with J* and his family in Yorkshire returning home on 1st December. I was stopped at passport control and security in the UK on my return journey home. I was told I can no longer use my passport and if I travelled back for Christmas I would be detained and sent back to Cyprus. My passport expires on 11th October 2022, ie late next year but the problem is, my passport is valid for 10 years 10 months and since Brexit, UK travel rules changed 1st January this year which now means my passport has effectively expired. I can only travel on a passport valid for exactly 10 years. I applied for a new passport as soon as I returned paying for “fast track” but as yet, no passport which means I have had to change my flights. Life is definitely too complicated for me now.

  • I think my car key fob battery has expired (13 year old car) - do I need to go to the garage (I can still do it manually with it), please or is it a write-off and I need a whole new key. I cannot see anyway to get the cover off. Thanks.
  • Not sure if this is the correct place but here goes - I belong to a couple of very local Facebook sites in which I rarely post but do look at what's going on. Have tried 3 times to post about a planning application but nothing has happened, no trace anyway, not even 'pending' on that particular site which usually happens. Anyway, getting annoyed at this I looked at my few posts on Profile and they weren't mine but someone who obviously uses the same name. I messaged one of the moderators (I think) two days ago and have had no reply. Can I just change my user name (if I can find out how to do it)? Seem to be getting nowhere on F/book. I am not computer-savvy obviously. Any suggestions, please, gratefully received - thanks.
  • Have just rung RAC to ask them not to auto-renew cover, had increased from £81 to £121 and wanted to shop around. Immediately went back down again to £81 plus an extra 3 months, so 15 months cover for the same price as last year. You couldn't make it up.
