    In my middle class,hipster ,craft beer drinking circle you are probably aware that scoring 1/10 would be classed as a better score than 9/10. Moby would probably agree.

    Indeed.

My dad hasn't any intentions of doing Ireland ones though so will have a lower total I suspect if she's done these.
    I've just spoken to my dad and he's done 1058 with all shut/sold ones prior to shutting with about 40 still to do or maybe a few more with some new ones listed as opening. Still beats the women into touch as she'll never catch him up once he gets round to doing the new openings.

    That's an impressive total. The geezer who does the online list claims 1075 out of 1098 and that includes airports and Ireland. He reckons that the new one at Gorleston in Norfolk has been put back to next year so that's one less to worry about this year. He reckons that they have 922 outlets now but that includes the 16 airport ones and a number that are closed but not yet sold so their total of open outlets is almost certainly under 900.
