Re: Italian adventures

Re: Stop Funding Hate

Promotions are a type of advertising. And the father who wrote to Lego in the first place asking them to stop their collaboration with the DM, was specifically referring to their promotions. And, anyway, does it matter? This is a major brand saying they are cutting ties with the DM as a direct respo...

Re: Stop Funding Hate

I won't comment further on Jo Cox's murder - we will soon hear more about it during the trial. Another fact: People's Challenge to the Government on Art. 50 - A Parliamentary Prerogative, has run a crowd funding campaign to cover legal costs. In total they raised over £170,000 and they have started ...

Re: Stop Funding Hate

This petition is not at all meaningless and I hope it gets somewhere. I know the press in this country inside out as I work in the sector and that cover of the DM is probably the worst I've seen in my whole career, particularly after the very recent, politically-motivated murder of an MP.

Re: Reassure EU citizens

I am just puzzled at the suggestions that EU citizens who have settled here might be deported. We didn't enter the country illegally, we have families, jobs, pension rights, own homes, pay taxes... We are as good as British citizens. Any changes would probably apply to new comers but not even the na...

Re: Seriously good highlights and cut at home by Gianni Iavarone

Thumbs up for Gianni Iavarone from me too! He did a great job with my colour - really subtle highlights and a lovely boost to my natural dark brown. Very nice cut too - shorter than I had in mind following his suggestion - it really needed it and super happy with the result. He is lovely to have ar...
