  2. I have always been jealous of the leisure times women have, no wonder men die 10 years earlier
  3. If the work is being done I cannot see the problem, but then you cannot give 100% if you work for more than one company
  4. https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/local-news/fraudsters-found-guilty-ghost-worker-5904116 A pair of council workers who cooked up a ghost worker scam to con £40,000 out of a council and cancer charity have been convicted of money-laundering and fraud. Qualified solicitor, Kalvinder Garcha, who worked as head of corporate resources at Oadby and Wigston Borough Council, and Lynn Middleton an advisor and administrator in the council's HR department, used their positions to set up fake profile as an employee of the authority for Middleton's sister, Sharon Reeve. Reeve, who lives in Spain and is married to a wealthy businessman, was then given a wage by the council for two years totalling £38,902, even though she wasn't actually doing any work. READ MORE: Garcha and Middleton were also members of the board at the Coping with Cancer and decided to pull a similar scam on the charity too, by setting Reeve up as a fake "consultant" for the charity, for which she was paid £3,675. Reeve didn't keep any of the money herself and it was all passed to Middleton, who then gave Garcha a share of their ill-gotten gains.

READ MORE: Londoner, 29, bought £550,000 house by giving up takeaways and Ubers Fair enough, right? That’s not how the viewers saw it after they started discussing their budget. One tweeted: “How the hell do 1st time buyers have a budget of 700k but they could borrow more! Yes they have a deposit but even so...that's frightening. It wasn’t just him asking. Another questioned: “How are a couple in their twenties/thirties, in this day and age, in a position to not only have a £700K budget, but are able to increase that if needed?” Another said: “They have a 700k budget and they’re saying it’s tight. Guys I’m gonna be sick. I’m never moving out.” It didn’t help when Phil said they only - I repeat, only - have a £700k budget. Someone simply reacted to that: “Bugger off.”

The company, one of the country's largest meat suppliers, launched an independent investigation into the complaints last month, suspending without pay the managers allegedly involved. Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder led the investigation. "The behaviors exhibited by these individuals do not represent the Tyson core values, which is why we took immediate and appropriate action to get to the truth," Tyson Foods President and CEO Dean Banks said in a statement Wednesday. "Now that the investigation has concluded, we are taking action based on the findings." A spokesperson for Tyson, Gary Mickelson, told NPR that there isn't a report to share from the investigation, but "we can tell you that Mr. Holder and his team looked specifically at the gaming allegations and found sufficient evidence for us to terminate those involved." More than 1,000 employees at the plant in Waterloo have been infected by the virus, and at least six have died. The virus spread across the community: Black Hawk County has seen some 12,000 cases and 193 deaths. Many of the plant's 2,800 employees are immigrants and refugees. Black Hawk County Sheriff Tony Thompson visited the plant along with health officials in April. He told The New York Times that working conditions there — workers crowded elbow to elbow, not wearing face coverings — "shook me to the core.

I have come across lots of people in my peer group who are taking early retirement, most of these people are in their 50s, selling up in an London for an obscene amount and moving to northern cities and towns, a lot of these people are in dead end jobs like bus drivers or hospital maintenance, people selling up for £1m to £600k Any one else coming across this phenomenon
  12. I am not sure the EU want to get involved in an argument between France and Australia, maybe they are trying to get Morrison to lose the Australian election and then back to business
