I wonder how much Nestlé paid them.

(Next year, they'll need the big purple ones for the Elizabeth Line)

Next year, it will be smaller, with fewer chocolates, but remain the same price.

Lol willit!

They say they paid for the chocolates themselves.

The main thing that disturbs me about Quality Street products is the word "quality."

Quite. I think the name comes from a once-popular play.

You've all missed Patrick's pre-emptive strike.

Not a little-known strategy for the back-double variant of Mornington Crescent, but the first live reference on this forum to the Elizabeth Line.

By this time next year, you'll all be bored beyond belief at the nit-picking corrections to the "how do I get from LHR to Gatwick/ Southend/ City/ Luton/ Stansted?" questions.

Never mind the spread of contactless train ticketing to the railway system in much of the Thames Valley.

London's extraordinary global leadership in big-city public transport is about to get even wider.

And it'll be a two-stage set of corrections, since there'll be a year where the service to Heathrow will still require a change at Paddington until they knit it all together.
