  1. You should go on A Place in the Sun, Escape to the Country, or (cough, cough) Location, Location Location, then you can be the twonk that rejects a lovely detached house because the kitchen isn't "open plan", or the bedroom isn't the size of a Saudi Prince's, or 3 acres just isn't enough for your (non-existent wannabe) horse. Or you could live in a 2 bed Victorian terrace with neighbour noises.
  2. Been told about on of the airlines by someone I know who works for them, full time staff sat on furlough, but temps bought in on 6 month contracts and low wages. Suppose it's cheaper than bringing staff off furlough.
  3. Residents of Embassy Gardens in London can enjoy the experience of staring down 35 metres (or 10 storeys) at the ground below, as they do a lazy front crawl to the other side of the development. But not everyone who lives there will get to benefit from the luxury facility. People who bought their flats under a shared ownership scheme, buying part of the property and paying rent on the rest, are not invited. https://metro.co.uk/2021/06/02/people-in-shared-ownership-housing-cant-swim-in-worlds-first-floating-pool-14698802/
  4. Right, blame Brexiters for something the French have 100% control over. NO, blame the French. Hope it backfires on them. Who wants to go there anyway? Dismal, boring place. Head further south for better weather, food and life. https://www.thelondoneconomic.com/news/brits-uk-france-travel-document-270447/
  5. Arghhh, the IT "attitude" in full force... small mindedness is rampant in the industry. Full of 'I know it' types, and as you don't I won't give you a job. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homomorphic_encryption The idea was first floated in 1978 and it took over 30 years to produce a solution that was feasible to use. And you expect everyone to know about it???
  6. The classic HPC statement in dozens of posts, "wait 6 months and the crash will happen". Never does though 😥
  7. https://www.joe.co.uk/news/brits-refused-entry-to-spain-and-sent-back-to-uk-under-new-post-brexit-rules-268713 I'm guessing they still think of Spain as it was in the good olds (late 90's at least) when Alicante airport (not it's real name by the way) didn't check passports, just walk off the plane and out of the terminal. Now Spain is a fully paid up member of the EU and will happily do it's bidding. Spain doesn't need the Brits, it's got loads and loads of rich Chinese and Russians flush with mountains of wonga!!
  8. Then explain this. Why did the young (early 20s) BAME/Muslim ladies in London I was with a few years ago complain about the non-UK person getting the prime job. As one of them put it, "it's our job" You probably can't.
  9. Probably, it's not really talked about much in the UK. Years ago (80's) I did casual work in a restaurant in a well off town in the south east. Of course not everyone was well off and some of the casual staff used fake identities as they were on benefits or whatever. All the staff were British I should add.
  10. Still waiting for the 20 miles of queues we were promised. Portsmouth's just given up waiting. https://www.portsmouth.co.uk/business/brexit-lorry-holding-area-portsmouth-port-close-early-due-low-usage-3132403
  11. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/revenue-apologises-for-post-brexit-customs-delays-caused-by-it-issues-1.4479409
  12. Eire creates a hard border. https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/health/coronavirus/travellers-from-ni-heading-to-republic-turned-back-as-new-covid-rules-come-into-effect-40064950.html oh dear, so much for all the protocols. They mean nothing when they want them to mean nothing.
  13. What happens next. EU indoctrination, that's what!! https://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/brexit-news/europe-news/brussels-post-brexit-communication-campaign-young-britons-7071136 Like some seedy cult or mafia organisation.
  14. The Irish getting the full EU "Thank You" treatment. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/ireland-not-at-all-happy-about-disproportionate-fish-quota-loss-minister-1.4465353
