Re: Glasgow low emission zone

Just in case you don't already know the low emission zone kicked in for buses on 31st Dec and will kick in for cars 31st Dec '22.

Re: Latest Tax Grab by SNP/Greens (Council tax)

There IS a benefit in paying tax, it contributes to the society, it's why Denmark is lovely and why the countries where no-one pays tax are awful! Council tax is nuts, but I'd wonder how a 1% tax works, is it collected centrally and then dished back out? There's certain suburbs are going to be utter...

Re: Mobile Phones for kids?

125 quid for an iphone SE (secondhand). 50ish for new battery if it needs it, or 20 for a USB power brick.

Lassie in work has taken 4 phones to Apple for new batteries and twice they've buggered it up and given her a new phone.
