    Yep my copy is also on it's way - however I got mine for £4.77 because I went thru quidco (-2% (tracked to -22p which is about 4%??)) and used a 50p off code found on packs of POPZ popcorn currently on offer in Tesco on BOGOF.
    You can't get anymore money saving than that - well I suppose I did get approx 60% off my bill by using coupons so my bogof became buy 1 get 1 1/2 free so even my popcorn came nice and cheap just how a MSE should get their groceries

    I suppose that wouldnt benefit the site though if you went through Quidco. I dont mind sacrificing 2% of £5.49 for this site

    I ordered mine 24/11 it's still not here. If I took this long to send my Amazon customers their books I would never get a sale.

    Steve Wright show?
    Janey Lee Grace (co-presenter on the Steve Wright Show) is very into Old Style ways, she has 4 small boys and often talks about being Green and into recycling and would no doubt give a glowing review of the book if she was given a copy.....

  • A brilliant and gripping profile of Boris Johnson by the great @JPonpolitics well worth the 15 minute read https://t.co/odelHYEbRg

  • Boris Johnson is now going to be our prime minister. Worth a pause for thought, whatever your political persuasion.

  • Boy they're dragging out this #conservativeleadership announcement.Three introducers now each grabbing air time. Get on with it please!
