  1. Always makes me laugh when the guardian and the like complains about the lack of affordable housing/flats in these city centre mega towers. No one with a family would ever live in one of these places, there isn't even any bloody schools. It's annoying what it's like in London just gets applied to every city That women didn't half piss me off. Offered tons of accommodation, but refused anything other than Eccles. Okay Eccles is a shit tip, but still, get what you're given - christ. Anyway, I'll be popping down to Picadilly East later, got some business to attend to. Can I lend a fiver?
  2. Depends on the jobs that are going, if its just people with crap jobs on crap money, then its not going to mean squat.
  3. Honestly you would have to be insane to live in London. That is an embarrassment. Does no one ever stop and think how much money that is?
  4. The whole kids can't go back to school because they might live with vulnerable people isn't washing with most. Teachers aren't going to look great, happy to go out for meals on Rishi whilst refusing to work. I think it gets to the point where if teachers don't want to go back, thats fine but they don't get paid. If teachers are as valuable and skilled as they insist they are, i'm sure they'll all be swooped up in other jobs right away. When nurseries opened back up, all the parents round us were saying they weren't sure about sending them back, it wasn't safe etc. Nursery opened and what do you know? There was a grand total of 1 kid not returning at ours. It's easy to grandstand and save granny on the internet, a lot different in real life.
  5. Aberdeen basically in full lockdown again. Supposedly all stems from one guy with it going to a pub. If its that contagious what hope do we have? Why are we even bothering with this pretence of opening things back up. The second we get anywhere this will happen again.
  6. We're doing this now in nurseries around the country. Do you think they socially distance toddlers?
  7. I think most people would agree schools reopening needs to be priority over pretty much everything else. It'll be political suicide to keep schools shut when we've got a government subsidised eat out scheme running. Sayin that, Nicola Sturgeon was on TV blaming under 30s for spreading covid, you'd think some of these politicians in their ivory towers might understand under 30s are sat there skint, in shared/shit accommodation having their lives destroyed for a virus that is no threat to them.. Maybe its time for our government to wake up and tackle this virus in a sensible way rather than ******ing over the younger generations again.
  8. The cynic says this is entirely motivated by Eid, its got to be a peak super spreading event. The thing is, do they honestly believe people are going to cancel their plans because Hancock blasts out a tweet at 10pm? Most people won't even know about these restrictions
  9. Now that we know the mortality is low, and the NHS at no point was close to getting overwhelmed, the conversation seems to have shifted to Some people have long term after effects And I'm sure when thats proven to be a tiny minority, or no different to any other disease, they'll come up with something else. Furlough needs stopping, this security theatre needs stopping and its time to get on with things.
  10. I think a lot of people in this thread don't realise that you can have a 30 year old couple on £40k each per year, struggling to buy a 2 bed house thats not in a shit hole. They buy it, and their neighbour will be Dorris who is a single woman, who was a receptionist for 30 years who seemingly has a very nice lifestyle compared to them. But yes, they've got an iPhone so it's their fault.
  11. Gotta say, I am enjoying all the PM hate in this thread. How these guys have been pulling 100k per year when they literally know how to make a spreadsheet, slow progress and cause problem after problem is an absolute mystery to me. I did a stint at the BBC and every 'agile' team has a PM, and these were the most useless, do nothing people you'll ever see. Lucky theyre at the BBC so they'll never leave.
  12. Its our culture. The mayor of London was quite happy to ban ads encouraging people to get into shape as they were seen as body shaming (https://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/jun/13/sadiq-khan-moves-to-ban-body-shaming-ads-from-london-transport) Do you think in Japan they celebrate fat people like we're forced to? Every other advert has a big fat bird prancing around now, otherwise the company isn't seen as progressive and must be cancelled. This is a case of chickens coming home to roost.
  13. I can understand people being reluctant to wear masks over here. We've had the PM, CMO and CSO all tell us they're dangerous. At no point have they really addressed this either. The message has just changed. Like you, I'll wear one, but I get people feeling pissed about it.
  14. I agree. Whilst I'd like to move more rural I am not convinced at all this WFH revolution will last.
  15. Sorry, but how shit is that house? 550k to live in that claustrophobic nightmare
  16. You go first. Partridge wasn't wrong when he said "You can't muck about with your own kids"
  17. It's not just the schools is it, its the kids in them. Equality is great until you're stood at the school gates with parents in their dressing gowns at 3pm, with a fag on
  18. Interest only perhaps? After 13 years that house should be worth at least £280k!
  19. It's probably somewhere in the middle isn't it. Government over egged how bad it was, now they need to go to the opposite extreme to get people back out again
  20. It's of no consequence. They're still going to get 2.5% year on year whilst the people paying for it sit in our tiny houses/flats, with the prospect of retiring at 75.
  21. Even better, Amazon now host all of their competitors infrastructure and software. Genius when you think about it
  22. LOL I know loads who did it for the "yay free money". Oh well..
  23. Jesus. They should just make the official policy ****** young people if this comes in
  24. Stop describing my life. Only I can afford a 2 bed, and 12 year old kia c'eed.
  25. I agree, however if I have to pay tax for an obese person to get treatment that they wouldn't otherwise need, they should at least be encouraged, or pushed to get fit
