I haven’t enjoyed a full, uninterrupted 8 hours sleep in nearly six years. I know this because I have had a lot of time to think about that fact. A lot of time spent lying in bed in the dark, eyes wide open pondering how long it has been since I have slept a full night and since when.

As we head into the New Year, Jo Chipchase has her annual festive holiday rant-up
Posted on 1:00pm Tuesday 9th October 2012
Jo Chipchase throws in her 'two penneth' on the Jimmy Savile case and, in particular, the material found on the internet - dating back many years - that hinted towards Jimmy Savile's unsavoury activities.

Aside from the obvious branding problems of being the company everyone associates with dog-doings, masticated chewing gum and free newspapers (*shudder*), I doubt they’d get any exposure. Nobody is using the damned things!
Why ‘Made in China’ could eventually be good for consumers and bad for corporates seeking cheap labour
Posted on 9:26am Saturday 19th May 2012
Some people consider Made in China to be a bad thing. But, really, it's not all bad! Jo Chipchase looks at how the tables could turn on big corporates, with consumers going directly to Chinese merchants to buy cheap items that are identical to the more expensive ones sold in UK stores.

We needn’t have gone to Rye and Lamb House in the east, or Plumpton in the north, or for that matter, Chichester and Goodwood in the west. Nor was there probably any need to see the Steine or the Palace Pier, Preston Park or meander through the Lanes. No, because we had everything we required in the Zimmer Zone.

Never afraid to be 'irreverent', Jo Chipchase picks up her pet topics of the hype surrounding public events and how they attract tonnes of plastic tat made in China.
