Once again the British public are being fed like slaughtered lambs to Big Business. This time it's our Mobile numbers. Already on landlines telecoms companies charge us if we want to block 'unknown' numbers, and for myself I'm sick to the back teeth of picking the 'phone up only to hear silence. Now, I inevitably slam the phone down straight-away rather than waiting for the inevitable request to speak to 'Mr Harper'. (most of my calls are for him)
Significantly the company 118800 site is down this morning - hopefully this is because of the deluge of requests for number removal from an indignant public.
I regard my telephones as a convenience for me, my relatives and friends - not as a selling opportunity for a greedy uncaring corporate shitpile, who dosn't care a jot about me - only the money they can make from me.
Well, thats the rant for the day. Having got that off my chest, I wish everybody a Merry Pancake Friday from
