GET IT SORTED – AUG 2006

YOU TELL US WHAT’S WRONG AND WE WILL MAKE SURE IT GETS FIXED (EVENTUALLY)

SEX SHOP WINDOWS

Restrictions on sex shop windows make it very difficult to sell a full range of vibrators and sexual aids. It's very difficult to interest the casual shopper into getting a whopping ‘double ender’ if they can't see the products on a day to day basis. Edinburgh has a proud history of amyl nitrate abuse and if it wants to remain top of the per capita usage of 'keep it up jelly' some provision must be made for a better level of window display. In addition to this, there are only a certain amount of dedicated users of love oil and poppers, this must not be allowed to die out. New fans must be brought into the retail equation by aggressive marketing.

STAR COMMENT
The Jenners Building Princess Street.

I pride myself on excellent window displays all year round and we sell packets in here - come on Private Lines! - don't let the side down!

STOCKBRIDGE

One of the seven villages of Edinburgh, Stockbridge, has accidently been painted white by the council. " This is not the first this has happened either," commented a local shopkeeper "I remember it happening last winter too - I hate to think of the cost to the taxpayer to have it repainted."

STAR COMMENT
Richard ‘Pate and Claret’ Demarco – Arts Impresario.

"When will people learn that painting is art and therefore worth any amount of cash injection. I happen to think that Stockbridge looks good painted white. Leave it that way all year round I say.

SHAVERS WEEKLY STAFF

After harrowing pictures in the last issue showing Shavers Weekly staff on a night out drinking only pints of beer with no chasers, some of you concerned readers sent in cheques and cash to solve the problem - to good effect! Here we see 'cub reporter' Guy Griffith firing on’ both barrels’.

STAR COMMENT
Guy Griffiths Shavers Weekly cub reporter and Young free and single journalist of the year 1989.

"Thanks Shavers Weekly readers! Your kind hearted gestures of money and gifts mean that the staff can now drink in the proper style - Pints and chasers - I for one hate drinking just beer."
