  4. Magazine subscription £48 for 2 years or £48 for one year with a complimentry soldering iron...seems an odd definition of complimentry to me....

      Yeah, I have a magazine on direct debit but I have found that their 'regular' special offers on annual subs can out do the convenience of the direct debit by quite a margin so I'll be cancelling it over the summer and get my 3 free issues or the free camera bag or the free treking trousers.

      It probably sounded like a most erudite contribution after 15 pints of cheap lager.

      After 15 pints of gnat's p*** I'd expect it to be called 'Ralph' or 'Hughie'.

      You have just spent 20 minutes covincing me what a good quality reliable product this is. Why are you trying to sell me an extra warranty? Did you tell porkies?

      Had something similar in Oak Furnitureland a while ago, a shame as we do like their stuff. Stood firm against the assistant who suddenly suggested the previously excellent product might well fall apart after a year.

       

      Concluded these dreadful people are probably on commission for the guarantees they flog, one way for businesses to make back the margins they've had to reduce with our oversupplied retail sector.

  8. whats happened to the FGW website???

      It's probably being repainted in that new livery...
