    Especially when there’s roadworks with traffic lights on the access road. Faulty lights there a couple of months ago caused people being stuck on there for over 5 hours as reported on Radio Stoke

    But all car parks can be a nightmare at peak times.
    Didn't someone put on this forum recently that they had to sleep in their car trying to get out of B&Q?

    What they were doing with their car in B&Q in the first place is another matter.

    14.3 million quid probably doesn't get you much these days but it is a start. Screenshot_20210520-205122_Twitter.jpg

    Mindful of not losing out at the next General Election much of the Government's money from that pot will be going to constituencies with Tory MPs.

    Another Starbys, ho hum, but the important bit is 17 EV points, if we are to move towards a serious reduction of ICE then there needs to be a massive increase of the charging infrastructure, not just one or two dotted around as a token gesture (and if it annoys certain snobby buggers in cresswell even better)

    Probably by gorging themselves at one of the four McDonald's we are blessed with.

    I believe it's proportionate to the amount of tattoos the good people of Stafford have divided by the number of shavings received from a hipster Eastern European. You do the maff.

    In a moment of madness (laziness) last week, the carer ordered a big mac each to be delivered. Reminded me exactly why we haven't had one in well over a year!
