Southall Broadway rats

Ealing Council Leader Jason Stacey said:

“And in Southall, wheelie bins will be introduced to those roads where there was majority support for them and it was practical operationally. We believe that by taking rubbish off the streets these bins will really help to tackle the problem of rats in the area, especially around the town centre.” Read more!

Halloween parasites

Halloween night brings out cute little children who put on fancy costumes and go out to have a bit of fun. They knock on their friends and neighbours doors to collect some sweets.

Unfortunately, in Southall, as in other towns, there are some parasites around as well, who have nothing better to do than throw eggs at peoples property for no reason and then run away.

This sort of incident is not just restricted to Halloween, it has happens at other times as well.

Are McDonalds really offering Halal food in Southall?

Are McDonalds really offering Muslims a Halal chicken menu option in Southall? Make up your own mind after reading this article.

McDonalds have set up a website called make up your own mind and want to give the impression that they wants the customers to decide. The website does not provide the customers with any facts other than marketing gobble-dee-gook .

McDonalds have 2 serious unanswered questions:
  • McDonalds is keen to tell the customer that animal is slaughtered according to the Islamic rules. If they wanted the customer to make up his own mind, then McDonalds would describe their slaughtering process and let their customers decide whether it is halal or not.

  • Right in front of McDonalds in Southall is a large well attended mosque, the Abubakr Mosque. Do the members of the Abubakr Mosque consider McDonalds offerings to be halal?
Without a detailed response from McDonalds to these very 2 serious questions, the customer is in no position to decide whether McDonalds offering is halal or not.

Under these circumstances, the only conclusion to be drawn is that McDonalds offering are NOT halal.

To be fairly certain that you are eating halal food, go the McDonalds website and ask these simple but serious questions and see if McDonalds are prepared to answer them. They have had lots of time to prepare for them.

Click Mobile UK Ltd customers conned out of thousands?

Click Mobile UK Ltd with offices in Southall and Hounslow is in serious difficulties. The shops have been shut throughtout September, the phones no longer work and the website is no longer operational.

The chances of any customer getting a cashback are non-existent. Nearby residents have been telling a constant flow of cash back caller that the business has been shut for 6 weeks.

Most customers only took the mobile offers due to the large amount of cashback offered. Those desperately relying on the cashback can’t afford to pay any more bills. Talking to the service providers to move to lower tariffs or cancel the contracts without incurring further charges have little chance of success.

This is due to the fact that as long as your phones work, the service providers have done nothing wrong and cannot be held accountable. The cashback deal was with Click Mobile UK Ltd.

It is amazing that in this day and age the service providers are out to con us.

If they had any intention of protecting their customer’s interest then:

  • Since the service providers receive the payment directly from the customer, the customer should get his cashback directly from the service provider

  • Since the services provider gets paid by direct debit, no one needs to provide anybody with receipts of payment or be late with the cashback claim

Not following these 2 actions is a deliberate attempt by the service providers to ensure that their customers can be easily conned.

Click Mobile UK Ltd has been making money from the "commission" it receives from the network providers. They are supposed to keep a small amount and a give a large amount back to users.

Some users forget to claim the cashback, others forget to claim on time or lose their contracts. Either way the customer loses out.

This only goes to show that a cashback deal with a company that is not a reputable high street chain, or the service provider, is a huge gamble.

With hindsight the sad reality is that users signed 2 contracts with 2 companies for a single phone line. The cashback offer can often cloud this vital warning sign.

If an offer seems too good to be true then the alarm bells should ring about how much you could lose instead of save.
