The wine chain Threshers are offering 40% off wine and champagne through an online offer. All you have to do is download this voucher, print it off, fill it in and take it to your local offy!
It’s genuine (rarely for the internet) and is even on BBC News Online. Apparently they’ll still make a profit despite the hefty discount.
The government’s been working like a smoothly-run machine this week (makes a change) and have announced several controversial things all at once. This morning we have:
- Rod Eddington’s transport report which suggests road charging rather than high-speed rail links
- England’s smoking ban will start on July 1st 2007
- Sex-offenders will face compulsory lie-detector tests
- Trials are to being of genetically-modified potatoes in Britain
and yesterday they proposed sending Britons to the moon, keeping life peers, building more City Academies, and Wales’ First Minister Rhodri Morgan stuck the boot in by declaring the end of New Labour.
Given the above, I think this may be wishful thinking on Rhodri’s part.
