Which?

I was a member of Which? 30 years ago. It was OK. I rejoined recently. It now seems to be run by illiterates. There are so many grammatical and spelling mistakes on the website and in the mag. And frequently their sentence constructions are incomprehensible. It's all very poorly written. They get on...

Re: Jo Johnson resigns as Transport Minister calls for second referendum

Is there finally hope we can avoid the lunacy that is Brexit?

Re: General Decline in Accountability

'Consultations' are the worst.

It's usually all been decided beforehand.

So many outright lies these days. Maybe fewer cover-ups?

BREXIT

Totally insane.

RS: It would be helpful if you could give some context as to why you hold this opinion. A few facts or well reasoned arguments would be good. Otherwise this is just a rant and probably more suited to "Bitter Lemons".

Re: New Top Gear line-up

My wife watches East Enders. A disgusting affair IMO. If that's entertainment, bring back cave paintings. Something should be done about it. Yes there are some very good things on the BBC. But there seems to be a faction (senior management?) of the BBC intent on ruining it. I don't see why they shou...

There is far more to fear outside the EU than inside.

There is far more to fear from outside the EU than from inside.

Re: Killing Eve

Glad I didn't bother watching this to the end. Sounds like it was a real disappointment. What did you expect? There aren't any good writers these days. And it sounds like it might drag on into another series of nonsense. Strangers is another load of rubbish. It's even worse because of 5 mins of adve...

Re: So the BBC took the Daily Politics

Yesterday a woman was going on about 'willy waving' men. Today a woman was getting excited about 'Amber Rudd's' (sic) Bodyguard. Imagine the reaction if male guests indulged in such blatant sexism. I like Jo. She's good. She looked very embarassed. Is this another example of the direction all media ...

Re: Landowners agree to Lynx re-introduction

Couple of years later, I camped late at night (in darkness). When I got up in the morning (daylight), I saw bear tracks in the snow around the tent. I never saw an actual bear, but a friend got some excellent photos of one that passed him on the trail (he scarpered off the trail when he saw it comi...
