Hello there. I’m speaking to you today, asking for your vote in the contest to be UK’s next prime minister. So I’ll be promising you the world, whilst then doing a series of U-turns after securing your vote..oh hang on, wrong script. Oh god, does this mean Liz Truss is about to give a speech extolling the virtues of changing locks? Well, I don’t expect anyone will really notice after all.
But yes, whilst the country (or 200k of them at least) are busy choosing the next PM, I’m still in the running to be your next locksmith, and thought today I’d go back to basics (apologies to John Major) and look at reasons why you may want to change or update your locks, as well as elaborating on the benefits of doing so. There will be very little here about reducing the civil service wage bill, many apologies. And these tips will be of very little use to the new occupants of Number 10, given the front door there does not even have a lock – it can only be opened from the inside, fact fans. (To be fair, there are other entrances and these likely have locks or keypads, but unsurprisingly they tend to keep these security arrangements private)
