I only just got my first one with Santander as it's who I usually bank with. If you're with them I'd recommend any of their viable options as it's dead easy to manage and the mobile app is pretty good.

Sounds like I work for them.

Thanks guys, I have actually applied or the virgin one as it seems good for travel and that is all I need it for.

Any conveyancing solicitors/specialists on here who wouldn’t mind me chewing their ear off with a few questions?

Anyone else wonder why Ant from Ant & Dec gets off pretty much scot-free* since his drink-driving incident?

 

 

*By scot-free, I know he got fined and banned (?) but everyone seems so sympathetic to him as if he wasn't over 2x limit and caused a collision with a few other cars.

Need a credit card for my holiday in New York. Haven’t had one before does anyone have any advice? I am thinking of getting the virgin travel one.

If you have the funds already then I'd get a Revolut Card. Revolut.com  They're the safest for travelling as you can just top it op from your phone as you go. 

That way you can only lose or be scammed out of whats on the Card at that time. It's no good if your looking to pay off  your holidays after you come home. As it's not a credit Card.

Are holocaust deniers complete idiots? David Baddiel's programme last night went some way to answering that question.    

Not seen it but what are their main points of argument?

Arguments such as: if it was so unbelievably bad for the Jews then it couldn't have happened; bodies take a long time to burn therefore the numbers don't add up; and (perhaps most ridiculous of all) Mercedes cars are often parked outside synagogues.

Has anybody unblocked an iPhone before, I’ve been given a phone but it’s for O2 and my sim is EE. I’ve seen some online companies can do it for £15 but are these trust worthy?

Yes all the time i upgrade so i can give my old phone away. However i just call up my supplier which is EE and they unlock the phone for free, so if you know the person you got the phone from, get them to speak to their supplier and unlock for nothing. If you don't then i cant see there being any problem unlocking at one of the £15 shops, all they do is remove the software part that ties the phone to a certain network.

I've got some leftover stabilising primer that was used to prep some old plaster. Can it be used as a base coat on top of freshly hung lining paper before painting over with the top coat, or should I just get a standard matt emulsion primer?

If only @Webbo was still around here to advise...

Why do you want to prime the lining paper? Just use 2 coats of emulsion.
