The fact he is on around £88000 is bad enough then there is around half a dozen of his cronies on around £60000 who take the flak for him when it all goes pear shaped  Theres no wonder we are paying more and more for less police why would you want to discourage speeding when its such a major money earner  Since the speed cameras were semi privatized they have been awash with money so much so that the police once got a percentage of the money raised but now it all goes direct to the treasury  When the daily mail investigated the selling of of the speed camera network they were told that the cost of the set up and camera would be recovered within two hours of the camera becoming operational  and what did the government do with all that money they made cuts to the police meeowed

Helped it to grow white though. Might have a go at the Grecian 2000 again. Someone round here uses it; I often see the tanker going down the lane.

I advocated head shaving for men who are getting 'thin on top,' so they won't be tempted to 'comb over' in the vain hope that it will fool people into thinking they still have lots of hair!

 

As I said before, I think a 'grade one' looks good on a man...

Lets take the OLD WOMAN out of the blue rinse brigade maybe "Mature Lady   " is better 

The Blue rinse was a water base colour and you could use it on ladies who had white hair. but a lot of young girls who had their bleached would have it on there fringes there was also a pink rinse you could have, if you look at a lot of young girls now quite a few have blue, green, red, pink, violet, and more colours in there hair.  I don't think that we can class the blue rinse as things we don't see any more.

 What we don't see anymore are Finger waves, french rolls, cottage loaf, to name but a few hair styles, Nestle Permanent-waving machine you know  the one chandelier type. This was fixed to the ceiling. Bottles of light ale in salons stock cupboard, (we use to set hair with IPA) lacquer not seen any more its all hair spray. Cubicles which we worked in and the large black/white telephone on the reception desk, I could go on and on but don't want to be a bore,

I'm only going back to the 1970s, but thinking about it my grandma and all other grandma's seemed to me to be of the Hilda Ogden type, big pointy glasses, silly lumpy hats and big broaches on their blue raincoats. But the thing is they were only 60 yrs old or so. I was only a youngster but to me they were old.
