Epping Forest Crimbo Walk 2010
I once worked right next door to the Hunting Lodge in a telesales call centre "selling" water filters. I left as soon as I found out it was a complete and utter con job. Unsolicited mail sent from Eastern Europe saying that you have won a prize (top prize a car) and to claim it you should ring this number! Yeah right.
It was completely dishonest and criminally fraudulent. It was openingly recognised and laughed at that no-one who replied would win the car. Yet the managers appeared to believe that this was a completely legitimate business - ripping off the elderly and the vulnerable. Norman Tebbit was the local MP at the time. No surprises there. Red raw capitalism - don't you just love it?
The walk itself was lovely and I recommend a stroll to anyone who lives locally. Pictures on Facebook
