    Just search for the toy or category of they like, how hard is that? e.g. Construction and Cars...

    Storm in a juice cup lads..

    They should remove the baby toys category though, cos that's ageist.

    That is hilarious and sooo inconvenient. I would love to know if there was even 1 person who complained about the Boys/Girls filter before.

    I've found that most mid-policy adjustment leads to them price-gouging.

    I once changed from one car to another, price went up. Then I changed back to the original car... price went up again (despite this being the previously less loaded one).

    I know risks/the market fluctuates but I'm sorry, I'm not buying it. Opportunity and incentive...

    Never came across it, full license always lowered a premium in my experience

    Any excuse to price gouge

    You must have missed the memo. It's already happened.

    I'm just amazed people are able to spend money on fireworks.

    Last time I looked, a number of years ago admittedly, you could easily end
    up handing over more than a few hundred for fireworks that might last you half an hour of
    sparkly fun.

    It's over a month from Haloween and eejits are setting off fireworks after midnight. I mean it's kinda utterly mental that a Guy Fawkes tradition got co-opted into Irish Halloween when you think about it to begin with, but just like how the first whiffs of Christmas seem to start in August these days, the scrotes favorite season for causing the fire brigade hassle and giving everyone else PTSD seems to extend a bit every year.

    At this rate it's just going to descend into a never ending Festivus of idiots all year round at some point.

    ^ Had I been driving - or had said Hackney warrior been delayed at traffic lights long enough for the L-plated car to catch up - rust me Roar, a similarly motivated 'frank and forthright' discussion would have ensued

    Might be the same lad that pulled straight out in front of me as I was driving the R132 approaching the Blakes Cross junction (year or two back mind)
    I u turned and went after him. (I had my then 3 year old in the back of the car).
    Only his elderly mother was in the car with him I was going to chastise him

    This was routine enough over on the Northside in the 1980's. I'm not saying this is good, but it isn't unprecedented. And it isn't a policing problem, it's a social problem. The difference now is that there is very little voluntary unemployment and the kids are younger.
