    I see that todays retail sales figures for October only dropped by 0.1% as opposed to the 0.5% economists had predicted. Why on earth are we paying thses economists. I am also sure the 0.1% is the responsibility of the media

    Well as my business has seen an increase I can assure you that 'Joe the plumber' is certainly feeling the pinch!
    I do debt management BTW.

    Probably time to hock that 52" LCD TV, and go back to having a 'normal' registration plate on his van.

    An example of a company that is doing well at present is Dominos Pizza. Because less people are currently going out to dine in resturants, Dominos delivery service is reporting a 40% increase in business over last years figures at the same time.
    So some reap while others flounder.
    Such is the way..................

    We make pizzas - they are cheaper, tastier and don't take so damn long as Dominos!!

    I would hope they are ! ! ! ! ! !

    Dominos are OK as an "Amercan" pizza goes, but doesnt appeal to my taste buds.
    For a takeaway, give me a Pizza Express pizza every day.
    Sainsburys do a very good Taste the Difference range of pizzas BTW.
