Do you sometimes feel you are ripped off? Does it make your blood boil?
Parking charges are the Bee in my Bonnet today - I've just paid £9 for 3 hours. That equates to £72 a day, £500 a week, over £2000 a month - I could rent a very nice place for that!

I can't believe the prices that are charged - especially in city centre car parks. I wish I owned one - I'd be able to retire smile I find it works out cheaper to leave the car behind and take the bus/train. I don't feel as in control but I find it quite relaxing!

Do you feel the changes in pensions are being given enough publicity?
The basic is rising, but existing pensioners don't seem to benefit.

I cant say much about the Pension changes; as I am not affected. I have been retired for a few years now, and my husband a myself are doing alright on what we have coming in.I do like the bus pass though.I have a car, but if I have to go into town, I use the bus, s I refuse to pay for parking.Makes my blood boil, too.It costs enough to keep the car running without parking it somewhere! Also, I have to say, I hate seeing litter all over the place.Oh, and people who have two, three, and sometimes four dogs!What,s that about??Don't get me started!!!!!!
