Oh dear, oh dear...

Hotel says "Please give us money to use our WiFi, it's really fast, we promise". Mmm, 4G will be fine, thank you...

Definitely prefer Avian Carrier over WiFi.  Great news for long-suffering, hard-working packets.

That's a shame, but you can't argue with TripAdvisor! ;-)

And again tonight. Given that the average hotel WiFi caps at about 1 Mbps free, perhaps 5-10 Mbps paid-for, I doubt I'll be using any again (unless I have to stay in an area with no coverage - rare).

Quite frustrated by our first-past-the-post electoral system, combined with where I live (and like to live, and will continue to live).

There is pretty much no point in voting in a General Election. This constituency has been variously defined as "safe", "very safe" or "ultra safe" for the Conservatives since the 1970s. Looking around me at my community, I doubt it will change this time round.

My political leanings are irrelevant - even if I was a rampant Tory, this frustration would still apply. My frustration is watching huge amounts of public (my) money being spent on media campaigns encouraging people to vote. Great idea, but not here...

And if I don't happen to be a rampant Tory, my frustration is incredible...

Proportional Representation isn't the answer - it would give us a direct reflection of "public opinion", which is almost entirely driven by the media, which might not be a good thing.

Will I vote? Of course.

Will I be grumpy while doing so? Absolutely.

It would have been counter-productive to "like" this on LinkedIn, so dropping it here instead... My sentiments exactly.
