Not always a fan of Dominic Raab, but I think his point today was well made.

Up until 1988 Robertson's jam ran TV adverts with their golly. That was only 32 years ago

We delivered to a building today. 24 floors and only 1 elevator and COVID limit 1 person at a time. Took over 20 minutes to go up and back down.

What a silly design for a 24 floor building and its a new building so not even old.

There was a famous Chinese "washing machine" ad only a few years ago. Infamous, perhaps.

One elevator for that number of floors is ridiculous! I'm surprised the developers got planning permission to build it.

My new Shark vacuum cleaner is da-bomb.

Better look out I don't lose the cat and MrBEVS better take care not to irritate, he might find suction marks on his bald pate.

I know I sound like a saddo but I've been waiting 6 months for this to happen , plus the previous vacuum has been rubbish really for several years despite all the maintenance , repairs and replacements. You know how it is. You save from something and then you buy it all shiny and new.

MrBEVS thought he might take it for a trial run . I was not pleased.
