No. Not at all but I do have a dilemma here. One of my favourite albums is Aerial by Kate Bush, which includes Rolf Harris. It’s now been remastered without Harris, but if the original pressing ever come in would I chuck it at about £80 a go? Probably not with that much to lose.

You’re right. Where do you draw the line? The B&W minstrels I think deserve credit for preserving some of the songs and spirituals from the Deep South that might have otherwise been lost. But, for me, Oxfam shops should err on the side of caution & avoid unnecessary controversy.

People in Swindon didn’t know where Level 3 is? Haven’t lived there for 16 years(and still miss it) and even I know where it is.

No deal needs to be on the ballot paper in order to ensure as many people vote as possible.

I have been wondering, and friends have laughed at me for this idea, why aren’t supermarkets using these bikes to deliver groceries instead of vans? Surely it’s a no-brainier? I would offer this service myself at the drop of a hat.

Our Oxfam shop has given up on selling cassette audiobooks because nobody buys them, which I just don’t get. You can get a great deck on eBay for £30 and listen to cassettes for pennies but they prefer to fork out a tenner for a ceedee, which have barely any audio benefit.

Should be in everyone’s collection and it’s such a bargain.
