Make pension conditions fair for 1950s women. Please sign the petition >>> https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/110776 #pensions 
The Government must make fair transitional arrangements for all women born on or after 6th April 1951 who have unfairly borne the burden of the increase to the State Pension Age (SPA). Hundreds of thousands of women have had significant changes imposed on them with a lack of appropriate notification

A classic letter of complaint
www.breakingnews.ie

Someone's not happy with the Customer Relations Advisor in Norwich.

I'd hardly call this French bistro, but who cares?, the food was excellent. From a creamy, fully flavoured fish soup to the pulpo in olive oil and lemon to the sea bass with clams and peas everything was perfectly cooked and oozed the right flavours. The desserts of chocolate fondant and brioche were not quite so sure, but good nonetheless. The Tabali Chardonnay Reserve complemented the first two courses well. The room is pleasant and was full, so service was functional but friendly, though one minor annoyance was that our table seemed to have a storage area just behind, which did irritate. But all in all - GO! GO! GO!

Clean and comfortable hotel in a tower block. We had a room on the 5th floor. There are issues though. Traffic noise was easy to hear in the room when it was quiet, which was not always (see below). The WiFi is intermittent - that was on all 5 of our devices, so it's unlikely to be them. The breakfast was not good; the juice was fine & so was the pineapple but the rest of the fruit was tasteless. The scrambled eggs were watery the first morning & rubbery the second. The morcilla was dry & had no flavour. Finding staff on the second morning was, shall we say, difficult. Worst of all though was that the hotel itself arranges a terrace party every month and insists on tormenting all its guests with something some morons call music but is actually just a VERY, VERY, VERY loud bass beat that goes ON & ON in the same basic rhythm for HOURS and could easily be heard in our room between about 17.30 & 23.00+. DIRE! 😡

I can only describe it as corporate blackmail. I was suffering, badly from the altitude and could hardly breathe. At about 23.00 my wife went to reception to arrange some. They said they would be along soon with some. About 5 minutes later someone arrived and said that if I walked to reception it was free but they would charge $40 to bring it to the room. I could hardly breathe, I could hardly stand, let alone walk the c.150 metres to reception, so we were forced to agree to pay $40. As I said, corporate blackmail. Treating an unwell customer as a cash machine. When mentioning this to our guide and driver they were shocked saying "oxygen is always free up here, we're so high". And the previous evening, at the Stannum hotel in La Paz that had been the case - oxygen was brought to our room without charge. It's also the case that the other 5 or so Bolivians to whom we've mentioned this have been shocked by the attitude and appalled by the charge. To me both the attitude and the charge are wrong and bad business practice too. The attitude: you don't blackmail your customers under any circumstances, let alone when they are unwell! The charge: altitude sickness is a fact here. Any good hotel business will have a good idea of the percentage of guests affected and take it as a cost of business - after all the charge can hardly make them much and has a bad impact on their image and reputation. It's just bad business and a rip off. If it had not been for this the hotel would have got a good review, but now I shall tell everyone to avoid it and go elsewhere. Their attitude should not be tolerated. Bad, bad, bad.
