It's a strange old world when a lot of people are struggling to make ends meet and there are others who have so much wealth and  have little consideration for others.   A contrasting set of basic values.
An article in the Daily Mirror yesterday was headed "WHAT A WASTE"  and went on to say that Burberry burnt 28 million worth of designer gear in a bid to protect its image!
It went on to add that Burberry over the last 5 years has destroyed 90 millions worth of designer gear to stop them appearing in the grey market.
Now Burberry is not the only company to burn unsold products, Nike, Richemont, Urban Outfitters and H & M and others are all doing the same thing.
There is a business side to this but also on the other hand a moral side but I wonder if any of those companies claim losses for this in their company accounts when the articles have in fact been destroyed deliberately by the company itself

Whatever the truth the fact is the production company upped sticks and headed to Penarth which hadn't originally been planned. I'm amazed they went ahead and set up in Llandudno in the first place without contracts being signed to cover all the locations they wanted to use. Sounds like a game of poker that was won by someone who wasn't even sat at the table.

 Speeding. Remember ch constable Brunson reputed to have overseen a sheep trailer which had a camera inside it.
  Anyway today to saw an orange coloured tourer van parked alongside a road. With just one small window at the rear. Situated to one side. No markings on vehicle. No visible person in it.
  Not a human being in sight. Virtually no vehicles around. Unlimited vision in both directions.
  Where was it parked. You probable guessed. Alongside the Cayley embankment.

I've come to the conclusion that the DVLA as a debt collecting agency is not fit for purpose.   They know from day one if a car is not road taxed and yet I still see cars being driven on the road that haven't been taxed for nine months or more. 
I have written to the DVLA for information on specific points on their enforcement proceedings under the FOI
 Act and they have refused to answer them and I have just written again for some other details and they haven't even acknowledged the application.
They have a duty and responsibility to the public to collect all outstanding debts but unfortunately are failing in it. I just wish that something or someone would sort out this mess

I've been forwarded some information - anonymously - which I'll print here:

"Adam Williams went on holiday after leaving a contract unsigned for 75k with the BBC for 4 days filming.
This would have netted him approximately 50k profit.  On his return it's alleged he demanded the sum be upped to 90k.  The film company reluctantly agreed.

It's then alleged that on the day the film cmpany trucks arrived, he pushed for another 15,000,  at which point the film company had had enough and arranged Penarth Pier within an hour of his demand.

The BBC were also going to give the four affected kiosk owners 1000 each.  They are distraught now."

What have the BBC got to do with it? They aren't financing it, Sounds like a load of nonsense to me  :-X

Seems some people are so greedy they end up with nothing! How stupid, should have taken the original amount and kept it on good terms then get more filmwork in the future! Or as in this case be greedy and get nothing! 🤔
