  1. The series on BBC with James Martin demonstrated the problems within NHS. Managers who had no understanding of catering and rarely belittled themselves by entering the kitchen to become aware of the problems. He was looking at very simple solutions: 1. Find out how many meals will be required each day. 2. Have a recipe for each dish so that they can be budgeted. I think it is fair to assume the same problems run across the organisation. The lack of management was shocking, despite there being lots of managers. I think this is true for most large organisations.
  2. Does your awarenes remember Lamont being in control of interest rates during the Exchange Rate Mechanism chaos?
  3. Henry VIII husband of the year, or even more crazy how about Blair as Middle East Peace Envoy.
  4. the wine and cheese party offers a fascinating insight into life at number 10. I would be interested to know: the cost of the wine and cheese, Who is paying for it, Are the m.p.s and civil servants correctly filling out their P11D for benefits in kind?
  5. "Higher pay and better working conditions." It's as if Arthur Scargill is now the leader of the Tories.
  6. Evergrande Group From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia On August 19 2021, the Financial Times reported that Evergrande Group is facing a record number of cases filed by contractors in Chinese courts as pressure mounts on the company's management to reduce its $100bn in debts.[8] What could go wrong
  7. Bubonic plague is a bacterial infection treated with antibiotics. Not a virus. Not comparable to Covid 19.
  8. Do they make non flamable acrylic? It would be a shame if the pool had to be demolished to meet fire regulations.
  9. https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/pm-statement-in-downing-street-27-april-2020 "because that would mean not only a new wave of death and disease but also an economic disaster" https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274 It's difficult to say Boris Johnson is wrong on this prediction. At the time I was surprised he said it since it seemed obvious that there would be a second wave. Look at the history of pandemics. The second wave usually dwarfs the first wave. There are now more deaths in this second wave than the first. However, there are twice as many people in hospital now than the peak of the first wave.Could we have twice the number of deaths in the second wave? Everyone I speak to thinks lockdown will be ended by March. Yet R is still over 1. Much depends on the vaccine delivery. Yet house prices race ever upwards. What mania?
  10. Who would employ them? I say double their salary and halve the number of MPs. I do like the idea of randomly selecting our MPs. It couldn't be any more of a farce Perhaps they could be forced to remain anonymous during their term so that at the end of 5 years they go away. I still have to listen to Tony Blair preaching to me every couple of months about his latest area of expertise.
  11. How long does it take to complete on a house purchase? https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://thepersonalagent.co.uk/how-long-does-it-take-to-buy-a-house-uk/&ved=2ahUKEwj5nKj_govrAhUTrHEKHRMUBOEQFjAFegQIDRAV&usg=AOvVaw0jxqE6MGvhUBAfPxixUOhJ I would say 3 to 4 months for most people.from offer to completion. That means these purchases that are in the Halifax data were for offers made in April and May. Not peak viewing season. I suspect the whole process was lengthened by the lockdown. Are these most likely to be offers made pre virus?
  12. "Now more than ever the housing industry should be looked upon as the foundation upon which to keep the UK working." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-53693149
  13. I don't understand how it can cost 115 k to clad a flat. Does anyone have a breakdown of the figures
