Can it be right for Costa's to use its chain of coffee shops as a mouthpiece for the Conservative party?
I ask because I have noticed that the only newspapers put out for Costa's customers are: The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Daily Mail and The Sun. I asked a member of staff why those papers were chosen. "We have no choice," She replied. "It is company policy only to purchase those."

Bradley Wiggins has been criticised for apparently not singing the National Anthem when receiving a medal. It is, however, a hymn, asking God to save our queen. With our society becoming steadily more secular, is it time for a change? I do not wish to be disloyal but, as an atheist, singing the National Anthem would stick in my throat.11 AnswersOther - Society & Culture8 years ago

Travelling along the A45 near Daventry, Northants, a couple of days ago I noticed, across three fields, dozens of dying or apparently dead, wood pigeons. Some were on their backs, feet in the air; some were feebly flapping their wings. Had they been poisoned I wondered. An hour or so later, on my return journey, there was no sign of dead pigeons - just a large number of them feeding voraciously on the crop of rapeseed.. There had been a hailstorm earlier in the day but surely that can't have been responsible. Any ideas?3 AnswersOther - Environment9 years ago

Labour M.P. Dennis Healey once famously said that being attacked by Sir Geoffrey Howe was "like being savaged by a dead sheep". David Cameron must now be regarding Ed Miliband's verbal assaults in much the same light.16 AnswersPolitics9 years ago

I spent two hours shopping today. Every shop had talentless wannabee pop singers wailing banal songs in the background. Even - dare I mention it - in Marks & Spencer's. Does inflicting us with this drivel mean that they have no respect for their customers.17 AnswersSenior Citizens1 decade ago
