The People's Palace is full of info - for example in 1930s Glasgow families struggled to make ends meet in cramped conditions in one-roomed tenement flats called single ends. There were these things called "Trade Unions" which fought for the rights of the working class. Marvellous wasn't it.

Or if you want something more recent - today's my ex husband's criminal trial. People seem to think he's been a naughty boy.

Any more info we can help you with Simon?

I feel fortunate to have kicked him out when I did. I suspect that I will read about it in the news. He's pleaded not guilty of course so could still get off but usually one isn't charged with fraud unless there is a fair bit of evidence to support the charge.

ok some recent info from me

our 3 way merger has been postponed so we wont be merging on the 1st August but maybe later in the year. our trade union taking a rather public swipe at the principal im sure wont have helped matters (although the decision to postpone the decision was made before this became public)

and my brother has left his wife and kids and moved back in with my mum and dad

Scotlands new away strip is going to be yellow after information about it was leaked by accident by a store in Edinburgh :lol:

If you have a national car sales business, and all of your registrations are handled from the one office, surely that means that a car bought in Glasgow could have been registered in Birmingham.

And therefore your detailed explanation and list was erroneous, unneccessary, a waste of space, tautological amongst several other things, but hey, you're posting.
