I am sick and tired of the mail, (which, by the way, is a paper that I enjoy) advertising so-called free offers, only to find out that i have to send off and pay a small fortune in postage. Recently there has been a spatge of 'free' plant offers which seem to me to be a thinly disguised advertising ploy by Thompson and Morgan. The same applies to their recent 'everyone's a winner'. If I had sent off for the iron cast toy, plants etc that were free, I would have spent over £10 in postage. Not very free in my book. I wish that they would stick to the offers such as the free magazines, which really are free. Other than this, it's a great paper.
Sorry again just realised this was your first opinion and i was being a bit harsh, so i upped the rating. Enjoy writting and good luck. Mario

I entirely agree with the "Free" having to pay postage, but even so, I like talking books, and getting one for 50 or 60p insted of up to £8.00 is quite a saving, also they quite often sell additional ones at two for the price of one, and postage of the free one is then not required.

Overseas territories appear with names of sovereign states in brackets.

Faint dotted lines highlight main railway lines.Some physical features are shown, such as light relief shading and names for major mountain ranges, spot heights and names of major peaks, and the courses of major rivers.Surrounding the map itself is a list of country profiles organised by continent, which acts an index to the location of the countries on the map. Each country profile includes a national flag, the local name (in Roman script), the English name, the country's surface area, capital, government system, administrative divisions, population, main languages and religions, GDP per capita and currency. There are additional lists of world records such as the largest countries and cities, the tallest buildings and the wealthiest nations.The map uses a Mercator projection at a scale of 1:35,000,000 at the Equator, with latitude and longitude lines drawn at intervals of 15
