  2. Hi all, looking for a bit of advice if you dont mind - serves me right for trying to help someone! Last November, an acquaintance of mine was literally almost destitute. No job, no car and on the verge of eviction because of late payments by DWP towards his rent. He was offered a job but needed a car.

  8. Conservative MP Mark Garnier has blasted the FSA for “massive failings” in dealing with senior executives at banks involved in misselling scandals. Garnier, who is a member of the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards, is part of a panel looking into misselling and is arguing for tougher sanctions for senior staff. He says: “The question I want to dig into is whether the senior people at an organisation can put up what amounts to a responsibility firewall around themselves.

  10. As part of his investigation into why British people are on average nearly three stone (24kg) heavier than 50 years ago, Jacques Peretti attempts to eat what is thought to be one of Britain's biggest fried breakfasts. A reflection of the rise in popularity of super-sizing food, Jester's diner in Great Yarmouth serves a breakfast that includes 8 eggs, 12 rashers of bacon, 12 sausages, potatoes, mushrooms, hash browns, black pudding, beans and 12 slices of bread. It is called the "Challenge Kidz Breakfast" because it weighs the same as a small child, around 9lbs. Link: http://www.bbc.co.uk
