  1. As with many industries which had a shortage of well qualified intelligent staff that were well paid, many people jumped in hoping they could ride the same train, unfortunately this industry now has more staff than it needs, thus pay levels are static/ falling and offshoring is rife. I'm sure that IT will find it's natural level eventually, but it has been in a bubble as far as wages are concerned for a long time. Just like the media / journalism and to a certain extent, trades, pay and conditions are all dependant on how many people are needed to satisfy demand.
  2. Ahem (from a mortgage rates site) "The current standard variable rate for Santander Mortgages is 4.24% which is one of the highest in the mortgage industry."
  3. Ours cost around £12k. I wonder if the directors will be band from running another business.
  4. I have seen a roadrunner near the Rio Grande in New Mexico, elevation, roughly 5000ft. Most of the desert in NM is 'high' desert i.e over 2000ft above sea level.
  5. I have a lot of time for her.... but cougar ?? errr no. Cougars are generally quite fit older women, not ones who look like pst op trans-sexuals.
  6. Also just heard UK Film Council is on the way out.
  7. WTF does the Health Protection agency do that the NHS doesn't ?
  8. I can see the CEO is going to have to lilo for a while.
  9. Hopefully after this setback the management can put their futon the road to recovery.
  10. The remaining stock is to be put in Di-van, to be moved to storage.
  11. They tried to bolster the share price but managing the finances became to much of a valance(ing) act.
  12. It's obscene, I work in TV (sometimes for the BBC) and as per most organisations, private or public, the least productive people get paid the most. I wonder how many of that 382 who get paid >£100k actually make radio or telly programmes ? In reality probably about 50 of them. For the people 'at the coal face' programme makers, directors ,producers etc. They get paid less than they would in the private sector, but as has been mentioned before, it's very difficult to equate private and public sector jobs. The Beeb is a very comfy, middle class organisation, there are plenty of people working there who simply wouldn't cut it in the private sector.
  13. Must be at least 1m ,remember all those people, who rent a property with 'permission to let' from the BS and of course those who just let out a property without any permissions on a residential mortgage, (I know at least 3 people who do this).
