  1. Every time their figures are released we should all post the screenshot of the above as a reply to their tweet.
  2. https://www.royalmailchat.co.uk/community/viewtopic.php?t=99619 Fujitsu bosses knew about Post Office Horizon IT flaws, says insider Quote Post by TrueBlueTerrier » 19 Feb 2021, 10:15 https://www.computerweekly.com/news/252 ... ys-insider The Post Office’s Horizon IT system should “never have seen the light of day” and bosses at supplier Fujitsu allowed it to be rolled out into the Post Office network despite being told it was not fit for purpose, according to a senior developer who worked on the project before it went live. Horizon is the system at the heart o
  3. Thanks for posting this @FANG, deserves higlighting for anyone who missed it. But yes, astonishing cover up by the PO and also the developers of the "Horizon" software, Fujitsu, who knew the code was full of bugs and causing errors. They were both ok with innocent people being prosecuted and potentially going to jail, rather than trying to fix the issue. I think a lot of this case was down to Computerweekly(?) investigating the code itself and whistleblower i think? https://www.computerweekly.com/news/252496560/Fujitsu-bosses-knew-about-Post-Office-Horizon-IT-flaws-says-insider

Nano particle copper masks that kills Covid on contact, UK designed and manufactured. https://www.med-technews.com/news/Covid-19-Medtech-News/mask-with-copper-nanoparticle-technology-kills-99-9-of-covid/ https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pharm2Farm-Pro-Larva-Medical-Grade-Disposable/dp/B08WJP9C51 Awful awful product name though! What were they thinking? (p.s. Hpc investor types...LON:RMS)

  6. I have to admit when I posted the link I didn't pay much attention to the giant cutlery! I was more shocked at the vendor being shocked that he wasn't getting more viewings now that he had a moody twilight shot. But yeah, that cutlery (and boat?) is daft as a brush.
  7. Lol...yep standards are really slipping here. Maybe we need troll Mumsnet or Property118 a little harder to encourage a higher quality of troll to come over here? #wedeservebettertrolls
  8. An old article (2018), but very relevant, and can speak from personal experience too, this is exactly what has been happening: Town v gown: is the student boom wrecking communities? https://www.theguardian.com/education/2018/sep/23/town-v-gown-is-the-student-boom-wrecking-communities "But for others, Britain’s burgeoning universities are anything but a blessing, as the thousands of students they attract transform the neighbourhoods they move into, raising property prices, disrupting locals’ lives with their exuberant lifestyles, transforming areas that rush to cater for the tast
  9. Wall clocks??? Noooooo...it's all about twilight shots! (I nearly wet myself when i read this) https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6258969/is-the-market-slowing#latest "Hi. Is the housing market starting to slow. We have been on the market now for 6 weeks with only 4 viewings. We changed the outside photos to a twilight shoot (went live Fri). Anyone else having the same issue? Any tips? We are lost Wouldn’t let me post link. Rightmove: North Rauceby £500k (Winkworth’s) - bungalow.

  10. No offence intended, but I'm quite consistent in my use of said word, anyone who i think is leeching off the system/joe public such as BTL scumlords (especially them) are scumbags to me...IMO. Now I don't know if these people on the lorry were pretending to be asylum seekers, but if they were, that's scummy/leechy behaviour...again all IMO. If they are trying to come in as ecomomic migrants they should not have tried to sneak in, again scummy behavior, but slightly less so...IMO. (Oh and this activity/demand to be snuck in is funding these people smugglers...genuine scumbags).
  11. So by not changing the benefits system, clearly they are (still) actively ecouraging this kind of behaviour? Why would they not change them, especially as Priti "Hard" Patel is supposedly wanting to be tough on this? Surely removing the incentive i.e. the benefits and free houses is the first move to make? I'm puzzled? (and possibly quite ill informed so do feel free to fill me in witht the details if i've got the wrong end of the stick).
  12. Apologies, i should of made that clearer perhaps, i said " freeloading-economic-migrants-pretending-to-be-asulym-seekers-scumbags?" Obviously nothing wrong with ecnomic migrants at all, it's the ones coming here on the pretence of being asylum seekers I have a problem with, to sneak in through the back door so to speak, and don't actually "really" need to be here, I mean Morocco, Algeria and Pakistan, i'm pretty sure there isn't much persuction going on any of those countries. And meanwhile this make its's more difficult for genuine aslyum seekers from places like syria as more people are
  13. Stupid question, but now we're out of the EU why havent they rapidly changed the benefit entitlement system? (or have they?) Or is it a case not being able to differentiate genuine asylum seekers from freeloading-economic-migrants-pretending-to-be-asulym-seekers-scumbags?
  14. Sentiment really has turned! Has Mumsnet turned into HPC? Are the sheeple finally starting to get it?
  15. So just the £1.5m/30% off the original asking price then? It's only money, nothing to see here etc. Crashy crashy.
