We live in what could only be seen as strange times. The so-called Main Stream Media is at best contradictory and delusional, so much so I am reminded of an event some while back that was staged to sell products into the Fenestration Industry. The front man for the event was the self-styled consumer champion Nick Ross, his main sales pitch, paraphrasing, the Fenestration Industry is made up of ‘crooks and charlatans’ and the consumer needs protection from it. In essence, you guys in the audience whose money we want today are not to be trusted, the consumer doesn’t trust you, as you are the worst of the worst - so you must pay us for protection. I still question, what was he on, was he for real, or was it the Mafia moving in.

Out in the other Walter Mitty World that is politics we have similar delusional sales pitches. From one corner it is ‘Vote’ me into power as your representative and I will ‘Give’ you this. Then from another direction you get I will raise that offer and ‘Give’ you this plus more. This is a strange if not a bizarre sales tactic especially when they conveniently forget to mention the ‘this’ is your money they want to give away or give you back – as if you can’t use it more wisely yourself. Not to mention, for every successive bid they make, it means you have less in your wallet. At the rate they are spending our money we won’t be able to afford Christmas. more......more

Letter to the Editor - Water Ingress

Dear Ian

Throughout the year entrance doors are faced with keeping the elements out and in securing homes right across the UK. With composite doors now the main choice for discerning homeowners with over 50% share of the entrance door market, they are now under the most exacting scrutiny due to the large numbers of installations, each and every week.

By definition a composite door is made up of different materials and combined are designed to look good, with the promise of an extended life span well in excess of 10 years.....more

Yours sincerely
