Frame - Day 4

Steeling himself...

Buzzard Off

We've won! Another government climb-down, three in two days. They are going to leave the buzzards alone. Hey Cameron and your toff cronies, you can't beat the people, no matter how hard you try. Oh, and John Prescott, former deputy prime minister who is usually so hot to show the rich boys up - sorry you couldn't be bothered to help us with the quickest u-turn yet. You keep going with the inportant issues like Clegg songs.

Environmental Vandalism

This is Richard Benyon, Environment Minister:
His job is to protect our native environment. His latest plan to achieve this is to allow gamekeepers on the estates of the rich to protect their stocks of (non-native, commercially-bred) pheasant from the (recovering, protected, native) buzzard by allowing them to blast buzzards' nests. This will destroy the eggs (are we sure they won't "accidentally" destroy living young and parent birds in the process?) and reduce the threat to the rich people's shoots. I've already drawn attention to my opinion via Twitter. Do feel free to do the same, no matter where you live. The planet belongs to us all.

His Twitter address is @RichardBenyonMP.

Even at this early stage, Bobby appears to be worried about his brother.

Happy? Anniversary?

On June 3rd last year I bought a cabinet to house my cds and dvds. It didn't take long for me to notice that the shelves were sagging under the weight of the precise items it was built to hold. I inquired at the store and was told to request a spare set of shelves at the the customer services email address.

Here's a surprise - they don't have spare sets of shelves for flat-pack furniture. I've had to reduce the six shelves to just four so that I can double up some of the sagging ones. But for a proper solution I would have to return the cabinet to the store.

Well, here I am with carpal tunnel, a repaired shoulder and osteo-arthritis developing in my hands. I could barely put the thing together in the first place. Take it apart and lug it back to the store? I told them I couldn't do it. So they told me that was the solution. So I told them I couldn't do it. So they told me that was the solution. So I told them DON'T YOU EVER READ WHAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY SAY? I CAN'T DO IT!

Last November I wrote to their head office in an actual printed letter (with copies of all the emails) and paid real money for the paper, ink, postage (not forgetting my time) and they never replied.

Finally, last week, I'd had enough. I filled in their online form (again) and they told me...I had to take it back to the store!

I repeated the above sequence until they asked me to send them my letter, which I attached to an email.

Today they phoned me (what, so soon?) unable, sadly, to open the attachment. They can find no record of my letter. What a surprise! But they will refund me the cost of the cabinet if I send them either the receipt of a copy of the bank statement with the charge on it.

So here we go. The details they don't need to know will be blacked out.

Anyone think they "won't receive" this one?
