  1. Restaurants could be stopped from adding a discretionary service charge to bills under Government plans to remind consumers that they do not have to tip when eating out. Sajid Javid, the Business Secretary, is today launching a consultation on tipping amid concerns that restaurants are confusing customers by not being transparent about the charges and who actually receives any tips. One option under consideration is to prevent restaurants “from suggesting any specific discretionary payments” to make it an “opt-in decision” for customers. Under the proposals in the consultation, restaurants could be forced to make it clear that customers do not have to pay the discretionary service charge. However, one plan being considered is abolishing the service charge entirely. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/05/01/restaurants-to-be-banned-from-adding-discretionary-charge-to-bil/ Give Your Views Here: Online Survey
  2. Always happy to look around the charity shops.And spend a pound or two or even three. And donated as well. But increasingly finding it difficult to find not a bargain but a fair priced item. As the Great British public donate things free i would have thought the policy would be stack it high sell it cheap. Charity shops are now everywhere on the high streets of Britain and would have thought competition was fierce. Shoes,clothes household items at prices that you can now buy at certain stores cheaper.New. Charity shops are places where the poorer can go to find things cheaper,are things changing,have they changed do you think in the last few years. Now i do have Yorkshire origins and do not want to appear tight and am willing to pay a fair price. And opening this thread i do expect a little criticism perhaps.I can take it been round long enough. Maybe i am getting older and grumpier as time goes by. Also some Tips have now opened Tip shops usually in metal containers where articles that the British Public have thrown away are sold. Now once again some of the prices i have seen are priced at silly prices and you usually get the response well that is the price. Have you had any dealings. Have you noticed things have changed. Bring it on.Have your say. God bless the volunteers in these charity shops.How are the prices arrived at.Who decides.
  3. Well,i am back again.When many of you post it gives me ideas. I like it in here.Sometimes it frightens you,sometimes it enlightens you. Enough of that,could go on for a while,ramble on for ages if left to. So what tips have you got for home and garden.Maybe handed down to you from your family generations ago.Maybe last week. I have seen two on another thread but will let them find their way here and tell you themselves. So who is first going to give us a tip. Not one for the 2-30 at Doncaster Race.
  4. The process of returning RBS to private hands has started. Investors should bide their time, Questor says. Stephen Hester’s imminent departure from the helm of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has come as a bit of a shock to the City. He was well regarded, having undertaken one of the most difficult jobs in banking over the last five years with relative success. The move appears to be political and, as an investor, this form of interference is always a concern. However, the bank has been roiled by political interference since the credit crunch hit, with politicians constantly moving goalposts. It is nothing new. There is speculation that Mr Osborne is considering Andrew Tyrie’s proposals of splitting RBS into a so-called “good bank” and “bad bank”, which is opposed by Mr Hester. Mr Tyrie made the proposal as chair of the parliamentary commission on banking standards. However, the departure of Mr Hester appears to be a prelude to the bank returning to private hands, something that is likely to take years. It appears likely that Chancellor George Osborne will unveil plans for the privatisation of the government’s 81pc stake in RBS at his Mansion House speech on June 19. However, it is also likely that the 39pc stake in Lloyds banking Group will be sold off first.
