How would it work for retired folk? Or do you only provide services to people whom are at work?

Apart from that, it’s an interesting experiment, I’d be keen to see if it worked.

I’d suspect you’ll get more work from the people where prices are decreased and less work from those who’s prices are increased.

In short you’ll be working more for about the same.

Thanks, re retired and unemployed etc.. i havent figured that out just yet. 

I feel much the same in regard to the more lower priced...possibly.

 

As it stands it doesnt seem an entirely workable plan at this stage, but im going to try and work on it... :) Ill let you know

The fat scouser football impersonator isnt funny.

Darren Farley? I think he's great :D

 

Admittedly some of his new characters like Arteta aren't brilliant, but his originals like Rafa, Gerrard, Carragher, Rooney and Rodgers are very good IMO.

 

Sometimes less is more though and he probably produces too much material which can water it all down a bit.

Amazon Prime delivery service really is world class. Ordered something at 9am this morning and it's just arrived. That's seriously impressive if you ask me.

You're welcome ;)

There's something extremely tragic about seeing De Niro doing a Kia advert.

Doesn’t help that it’s probably the most cringeworthy advert ever as well

There's been a surge in American A-Lister advertising crap on uk tv. De Niro on Kia and Warburtons ads, Snoop Dogg in moneysupermarket and just eat ads, Harvey Keitel on direct line ads.

 

You'd wonder if there was something like an unexpectedly high tax bill for the stars in the US to pay that meant they were willing to scrape the barrel a bit more.

I've read before that these ads are a tax bill thing and that the celebs choose countries where, frankly, they don't give two sh1ts about damage to their brand. 

 

So every time I see a Hollywood a lister doing an advert here I just think, there goes someone who thinks the UK is right up there with Slovenia and Turkmenistan in importance

I'll do my best to avoid buying anything that is advertised by some actor/celebrity. They mostly don't use the product or worse still have never heard of it before the payday opened up.

Used to enjoy the Go Compare advert with the tenor singing the brand and some of his performances relating to car insurance (for example, when he had a 'crash' and he appeared under the rubble).

However, his latest advert appearance (where there's a clip of him singing a song, one that Bocelli sang at The King Power Stadium, at some outdoor concert) makes me feel the adverts now seem to be spreading the awareness of him singing than the actual brand being advertised.

I’ve recently purchased myself some proper walking boots and they’re absolute game changers. Waterproof and with “warm technology” in them apparently. Was walking up Baildon Moor yesterday, ankle deep snow and not one bit of seepage. Also managed to fall in a sink hole up to the ankle again, feet were bone dry. 
 

They might well be the ugliest things I’ve ever worn on my feet but I wish I’d bought some sooner.

All men get to that age. Comfort over style any day.

The fact that you ever enjoyed one of them adverts is baffling. The bloke's a c**t in either guise.

They were the ones I got. They’re out of stock on sports shoes now but there’s loads of other similar ones on there or you can get those exact ones from elsewhere.
