Argos distribution workers have announced the dates of two 24-hour work
stoppages: 17th July and 24th July. These will be followed by a
four-day stoppage, beginning 30th July, that will be staggered
amongst the cataloguer’s four sites in Basildon, Bridgwater,
Heywood and Magna Park. The workers are protesting the
company’s offer of a 4 per cent pay rise in light of the
58 per cent hike given to the CEO of Argos parent company
Home Retail Group.

Condiment Gun from Firebox.com. Because, really, every
family needs to fire their ketchup and mustard onto their
burgers with something resembling a handgun.
