Barrie Wheatley's curator insight, October 31, 2015 9:45 AM

People often say "You, when they actually mean I, like when they might say, "You go the shops and can not find the right shoes to buy. "

Mandy Trevett's curator insight, January 15, 6:20 AM

A very interesting concept, which I would love to get involved in.

No, mental illnesses are a completely different type of illness which needs a completely different approach. Mentally ill patients need to be heard and listened to with continued support throughout. The mind goes into such a dismal state that they feel so isolated and alone because nobody's listening........

Families avoiding higher petrol prices at motorway filling stations

Families avoiding higher petrol prices at motorway filling stations | Viewsbank | Scoop.it
Families are buying fuel cheaply before they set off for holidays rather than paying more at motorway filling stations, a new survey has found.
Viewsbank's insight:

Motorway service stations definitely provide an important service and millions of motorists use them. But the research shows they are not winning many friends.

 

"Customers are convinced they are paying too much and only use them because they don't have a choice.

Roads classed as being ‘poor’ | Oxfordshire Guardian

Roads classed as being ‘poor’ | Oxfordshire Guardian | Viewsbank | Scoop.it
Viewsbank's insight:

It is shocking that nearly two out of three motorists are unhappy about the state of local roads and even more worrying that six per cent of people have had an accident because of potholes.

 

The Chancellor has recognised the need to spend on road repairs and has committed to increase spending but potholes are clearly still a major issue and motorists believe little is being done to solve the problem.

Surveys: Europeans say no to fracking

Surveys: Europeans say no to fracking | Viewsbank | Scoop.it
Studies by European Commission and Viewsbank show need for better education of risks and benefits of shale gas
Viewsbank's insight:

The fracking debate has been widely aired in the media but it is clear that many people do not consider themselves particularly well-informed. Proponents and opponents can both take positives from the research.

 

Many remain undecided but there is a definite undercurrent that people are happy to support fracking just as long as it is not in their backyard.

The percentage of Britons who support fracking for shale gas has sunk to below 50%, according to the latest YouGov poll conducted on behalf of Nottingham U
Viewsbank's insight:

Every time ministers open their mouths to claim that fracking must start everywhere around Britain, and not just in carefully selected and remote (derelict) areas, they lose thousands of Tory votes.

Drivers walk to avoid parking fees

Drivers walk to avoid parking fees | Viewsbank | Scoop.it
Drivers are voting with their feet over parking charges, with most prepared to walk so they do not have to pay.
Viewsbank's insight:

There is a balance to be struck between cutting traffic congestion and costs for motorists but for many the balance is tilted too far against drivers.

 

People are literally voting with their feet and taking direct action to avoid paying a fee, with the average motorist willing to walk half a mile. There clearly is a problem with parking, with many people struggling to find a space near their home.

'Unexpected item' top of self-service checkout complaints

'Unexpected item' top of self-service checkout complaints | Viewsbank | Scoop.it
NEARLY half of all supermarket shoppers say they regularly need help when using self-service checkouts, a survey has revealed. Top of the complaints was the delay caused by machines saying...
Viewsbank's insight:

My personal experience is that something almost always goes wrong at the self-service checkout so it is reassuring to find out that it isn't unusual.

 

Of course, self-service checkouts do have their advantages, speed for the shopper and lower staffing costs for the shop – and they generally make shopping faster. However, staff are still vital given the number of people needing assistance.

Pub prices in the UK

Pub prices in the UK | Viewsbank | Scoop.it
The average cost of a trip to the pub is £18.45 but for 50% of adults it’s a once a month visit or even less, a new survey1 from independent research firm Viewsbank shows.
Viewsbank's insight:

Pubs are an important part of the British way of life but the rate of closures show that it’s hard for pub owners to make money, let alone to stay in business.


The pressures on pubs are immense with rents and alcohol duty not to mention wider social issues such as the smoking ban, worries about binge drinking and health issues - plus price competition from supermarkets.


It is striking, however, that despite all the gloom and closures 62% of people still believe they have a local even though many of them don’t go that regularly.
