Yes it was Commerical that did them. Absolutely fantastic, what a follow up from the 5th, and to produce that even in the vile conditions. Your society should be very proud!

Well my dog was terrified and isn't enough we have to put up with fat, middle aged losers blowing things up in November without it extending into December. Ban them I say! Ban it all!

On a more serious note, is there really any point to late night shopping any more now that you can buy what you want, when you want on the internet? On a similar note, I've always wondered why shops insist on opening from 9 till half 5 during the week. Would they not be better off opening later and staying open later when people aren't at work and might want to do some shopping? Likewise doctors and dentists should shut on Monday and Tuesday then open all weekend when people are available to actually go. This weird obsession in this country with fixed hours to do everything seems a little outdated these days. Likewise the odd idea that we need to change GMT to give people more light in the evenings. Why don't people just start work an hour earlier and petition their kid's schools to open an hour earlier? There can't be many non-retail jobs that would say no if you wanted to start and finish earlier these days.

Oh Ed you Scrooge, stop crying about your dog and embrace the tradition and festiveness of late-night shopping.

It's not so much that I don't like late night shopping, I just wonder why the shops don't open late every night, opening later in the morning to make up for it. Hardly any shops in Brighton open before 10 a.m. and they mainly stay open until around seven all year round. Just seems far more sensible to me, I'd wager any clothes shop would sell more between half five and seven than they ever would between nine and half ten on a weekday.

Ed Can Do I totally agree with you about Doctors and Dentists, their main hours should be the weekend when people can actually attend rather than have to take time off work (especially the Drs as you have to make the appointment on the day!). I have also never understood why there is a big market on a weekday, surely they would have a lot more trade on a weekend!
