Wilkinson Gillette?


I bought ten blades and the razor from eBay for £5. The first shave was pretty good, a little rough maybe, but worth continuing with. The razor, though very similar to I had given up on, holds the blade at at good angle and is easy to use. For £5 including the blades, I don’t feel cheated!

Flying Eagle – a terrible blade!


I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t expecting much, but this blade is possibly the worst one I have ever used! I shaved half my face, it felt like I was using a sharpened scrap of metal. I then switched to a favourite Astra Platinum, and couldn’t believe the difference, so smooth. Don’t waste your time on the Flying Eagle!

Lord Racer

Time for an extended test on the Lord Racer. I’ll use the blade for two lots of four shaves and see how I get on with it.

Update: Ok So I really can not get on with this blades. I have tried 3 (of the 60 I bought) and find them rough, they make my face sore. I case it was me doing something wrong, I have gone back to a Dorco ST-300, and found it smooth and a great shave. This is my second attempt at using Lord blades, both times it’s not gone well.



Shaving Games 2 – Super-Max Platinum


On to a Super-Max Platinum.

I was unable to proceed with this trial. On the first shave the blade was blunt. I had initially put the blade in one razor before moving it to another. It could be that I was at fault, so I’m not prepared to give the blade a bad review.

Can you spot a bargain?

Yesterday I was shopping in Tesco. On my list was Decaf coffee, and I know that my son likes Kenco. I am busy, and I didn’t really want to have to spend a lot of time thinking about it, but when faced with the choice of either buying a jar or a refill pack, I had to stop and think!



Surely the refill pack for £3.00 was a bargain! After all, it is normally £4.99, almost a pound more than the jar. But I knew that the lid on our jar at home was showing signs of wear, so how much was I really saving by buying a refill? Was it worth replacing the jar?

I stood there doing the maths. I knew that the labels both said that it was £2.00 for 100g, but I was confused. Did that refer to the pre-discounted price? Surely the £3.00 for the refill pack would save me a pound?

No, the refill pack was 50g smaller than the jar, and pound for pound the two items cost the same, but one was explicitly marketed as a saving of £1.99 – and of course will run out quicker, bringing you back to the store for more “bargains” more often.

It’s time we took a stand and told our supermarkets that we are no longer prepared to be treated like that. We don’t have to give them our money!

Reflections from #TheBigIF

Labour Campaign for International Development

by Kirsty McNeill, LCID Advisory Board Co-Chair

The Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign held a rally in Hyde Park this weekend. Three things stood out as major highlights for me:

1)      Wow. Getting 45,000 people to take any form of coordinated political action is an extraordinary achievement, particularly in the face of austerity, deep public scepticism about politics and an increasingly fractured media market that makes it ever harder to have a genuinely national conversation about anything. This was not a mass mobilisation on the scale of Stop the War or the Countryside Alliance but hats off – the domestic charity sector would kill for a show of strength like this.

2)      At one point during the day the MCs asked people to shout if they had been in Edinburgh for Make Poverty History and again if this was the first thing like this they’d ever done. …
