    RoB just seems to be growing and growing, while Mr B just sort of stands still. Shame. Oh well, good for RoB!

    There have been rumours in the city for some months that RoB was interested in buying the Cockring which had been shut down earlier last year after a drug’s bust.
    Strange news to hear now that the Argos has been purchased…
