Yip the 'rag an bone' man has been round almost weekly around here.
My husband used to enjoy fixing up old cars, before it became ridiculously expensive.
They want all old cars off the road, they want us to buy as new as possible to boost the auto industry even though we generally cannot afford to buy a
car and insure it over here. Most new cars are built to fall apart rather quickly and warranty terms are getting shorter.
Those who can no longer afford to drive, struggle to get to work or find a job locally, the trains are too expensive now.
It's not hard to see how so many of our problems are intrinsically linked.
For the past few years we have had people knocking on doors to buy any gold as well as tv/newspaper ads. We are swapping our gold for what will soon
be useless paper, doing anything just to get by.
It most certainly sounds like a conspiracy to me.
