The BBC license fee
« on: September 23, 2020, 06:06:56 »
Bit of a shock to the system having to buy one for the first time in 10 years

157.50 to watch bargain hunt and homes under the hammer

You been getting it illegally for 10 years?

They're 'changing' it soon to cover tv, radio and Internet.

It is very good value compared to Sky though I do wish that they would get rid of the BBC digital on screen graphic on IPlayer. I can't watch anything on there because of it.

You finished out there for good?  Got a really tempting offer for Saudi, based in Dubai as well, and it's only 2 flights max home, not 2 days and 5 flights like previously

If it's on the coast or more than 1000km away from Riyadh take it if the money's good. Stevie knows the recipe and will sell it to you along with the empty bottles.

Aye , back for good after 10 years . I have been stuck here now for 7 months not seeing any family , head is melted .
I would return after the virus for maybe a few months

Most jobs now are only 2 flights but I think a recession is about to hit Dubai like 2008 as everyone is losing jobs because there is no tourism at the moment 

I had a few pints of Guinness in Saudi the other week at the Embassy, good stuff

.....add to that the cowardly assassination in broad daylight of a well known Dutch humanitarian last weekend.  According to some news sources, the after affects of this atrocity could spell disaster for the Western Seaboard of the UK, as the impact of excessive hot air and tears in the Liverpool region could cause severe flooding. The emergency authorities have pleaded with the robbing bastards law abiding citizens in this area to refrain from the traditional candle lighting ceremony.
