    Default People will being going North to shop again!!

    With sterling falling to 85.5p to the euro, it has droped over 3.5p since the start of Jan. I believe sterling is on a negative outlook and will weaken further with extremly poor economic data coming out of the UK. I believe with increase in excise on alcohol, and consumers under pressure with property tax and other measures we will see ques over the border again
    it could be a very hard few months for the border region

    The truth of an idea is not a stagnant property inherent in it. Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.

    Prices are far too bloated in this country. Many shops are charging 1.20 for a bar of chocolate

    A use for all the redundant hard hats.

    Do I need a licence or permit to sell along the M1?
