Bitterwallet - trolley dashYesterday's inaugural Trolley Dash was a runaway success, with dozens of avid Bitterwallet readers clamouring for more in the comments. So back by popular demand, here's another round-up of odd and sods and other stuff for your Wednesday lunchtime:

Ryanair to open new base in Barcelona
The key word in the headline is in; after years of fobbing off passengers with airports in Barcelona (Girona) and Barcelona (Reus) - both 90 minutes away by car from Barcleona itself - Ryanair is going to launch services to Barcelona El Prat from September. That's the good news. The bad news is there's only one UK airport that'll enjoy the new route - Edinburgh. Balls.

Eat out? Only if I can find a discount voucher commission poll to discover whether people like using voucher codes and saving money. Poll discovers people like using voucher codes and saving money. send poll to The Telegraph. The Telegraph publishes it almost word-for-word. The end.

    Sorry, but surely if it's a voucher site doing the research, they are more likely to question people who search for vouchers, rendering this statistic rubbish? I am 1 out of about 5 people I know who bothers looking for vouchers before buying anything. And I know a lot more than 7 people!

    Blightly? Not Blighty? Where's that, then?
