Instead of a "new concept", how about a bar/restaurant in Kings Cross I can actually afford to eat at?

Fuck you UK Tax Office. I wouldn't wait in Sainsbury's for 11 minutes, why are you any different?

Was just checking out the reviews that employees have given +Evans Cycles​. They are mostly terrible, citing awful management and terrible pay, but this one especially caught my eye.

Pros: bondage with customers”

I once stood at the counter for fifteen minutes at an Evans shop while the bloke behind the counter was on the phone. The other staff were just milling around, no bondage involved.

All these little white blobs are chewing gum. What possesses someone to take a piece of gum out of their mouth and stick it on a cup holder in a coach? I wonder if their car is in the same state?

A super (and super-long) assessment of the affordable housing crisis in London. The drip, drip effect of reducing affordable and social housing in London ultimately means that hundreds of thousands of units will be taken out of the housing equation - with obvious consequences for low paid, average paid, and even high paid workers. A one bed "affordable" apartment in one development would require an income of nearly £60k, when the average income in that borough is £24k - and no, it's not in Mayfair, it's in Elephant and Castle!
The release of a ‘viability assessment’ for one of London’s most high-profile developments – seen exclusively by the Guardian – sheds new light on how developers are taking advantage of planning laws to ramp up their returns

Letchworth Garden City is the original Garden City and still retains a lot of the original ideas and lovely architecture (including the Spirella building). A very pleasant afternoon walking about.

Hotter inside than outside, so I'm going out for the day.

I thought this was just a super-posh Mercedes with curtains, then I saw the back wheel. I wonder what the cause of the accident was. Must have been serious to set off the curtain air bags.

Is there anything a robot can't do better than a human? (Don't answer that!)

More seriously, surely the Universal Wage is an inevitability?

Police around doing weight tests on vehicles, looking for overloaded coaches I suspect (on the only approach road into Victoria Coach Station arrivals).
