Re: Racist?

If all of the above remained the same, but said performer was white instead of black, would you have accepted the offer? HYD Fair point. Had he been white, it wouldn't have occurred to me that his routine would involve racial observational humour. But then, of the white comedians that I like, none ...

Re: Boris Johnson

I can't stand the way he is constantly referred to as "Boris" which sounds friendly and doesn't really convey how ruthless and dangerous Johnson is. Surnames are good enough for other politicians, why give him a special moniker? Presumably because he's the only "Boris" in curren...

Re: Are voluntary NI contributions a no-brainer?

Due to being partially contracted out and a period of part-time work, my other half's state pension is going to be about 20% short of the maximum. At first site, the voluntary contributions seem like a no-brainer. £741 for last year would give her £4.70 a week , which pays for itself after 3 years ...

Re: Accident responsibility

I would try and dispute this with the insurance company.

H'mm, I have seen sofas at the cheaper end of the market with a weight capacity several stone less, so I would not discuss this aspect with the landlord. Can you find out the weight capacity? The landlord purchased the sofa off an eBay seller - looking at the current advert for the same sofa now, I...

Re: Halifax Clarity T&C change - interim manual payments now not accounted for?

Are you sure there isn't an associated clause somewhere that says that they will not allow the card to go into credit? Most CC have this rule and, if they do, it negates the issue you foresee and supports the current status quo. So, if you make a manual payment, then the DD is set to clear the *rem...

As far as I can tell from the timings, he posted that he was leaving at 5.54pm on 8/8, and has only posted once since then (in a reply to the Farewell thread). The post you linked was before the leaving post.

It's really not clear from your description that this is what happened. Or are you saying that this happene...
