    A few random photos - 6

    I used to deliver sheets of glass there a few years ago for their building maintenance dept. Never saw the inmates & the security would put Fort Knox to shame ! Awful atmosphere all over the place.

    1968 Bus Strike

    Only a couple at Bulwell I know of but the non strikers refused to join the union but would not cross a picket line either !

    1968 Bus Strike

    The 1968 bus strike was over a claim of £1 per week pay rise ! Nottm City Council refused to pay so the bus crews had a strike every Saturday. Eventually NCC gave in to the bus crews demands after city shop keepers offered to pay the pittance of a rise themselves ! I worked with many crews who took part in the strike.

    How's your day?

    My Virgin Mobile went up to £6 per month from £5m a 20% increase. BB & LL with free LL calls anytime now £57 pm to £60 pm. If this carries on I will have to send Mrs C out to work.

    With speeds like this it will be hard to beat. Don't have a BT phone line so could be a problem. What gets my goat is the above rate of inflation rise every year. Nothing to do with Branson he sold VM to the Americans years ago. I may get on the phone & threaten to leave & see what happens, with my luck they will just say cheerio !

    Just received email from Virgin Media my landline & broadband increasing by £3 a month. Every year like clockwork it increases. Thing is the BB is so good. Would be impossible to better.

    My BIL worked for years at Northern Dairies on Triumph Road & he swore blind stera was the best milk in the world & wouldn't thank you for anything else. Awful stuff.
