    Well that always happens when too many try to jump on the same specialist bandwagon irrespective of where they’re located. Running might be a big thing right now but supplying only running shoes seriously limits the number of visitors, so to keep them coming back they need to be right on their game. It seems very few shops these days stand the test of time and even the big names are deserting our town centres. Perhaps they should look at stores like Handcock and Woods and see if they can work out what the magic formula is. Bill

    We will have to pay for their security outside the country in order to make sure that it is reliable. The effects on this country and its foreign policy of one of the Royal Family being kidnapped abroad do not bear thinking about. Terrorists do not count the value of their acts in money and to fight terrorism we have to think like them.

    Never judge a book by its cover - the tattoos could have been done years ago and the car could have been borrowed or purchased on a leasing agreement prior to falling on hard times. It is often quoted that many of us are just two pay cheques away from needing a food bank. But I do understand that some people will be getting their priorities wrong when it comes to feeding their kids and buying booze and fags with their benefits. May be a percentage of benefits should be paid in vouchers which can only be used on life's essentials to ensure cash is not misused?

    I too know nothing about food banks and feel sorry for the people who are in a situation that require them to use one. Whenever there is a collection at the supermarket I contribute. Last couple of times they have been featured on the news have left me not so sympathetic. Last time ( I think it was the BBC news) featured a young woman who could not feed her children driving a nearly new Renault Kadjar to the food bank. Previous to that it was a story about children going to school hungry and a school opening early to feed the children, interviewed were two heavily tattooed ladies with I phones on the table in front of them who were saying how valuable this service was to them and their children. Now I know the system isn't perfect or generous but the majority of people seem to cope on it, some people even manage to have things like Sky TV which again I do not have, others need food banks on a regular bases, apparently.
