  • There’s plenty of jobs at Micky D’s that would suit groups of people who have no qualifications.

    When you drop the pebble in the pool of water, yep we all know what happens and it is about time we end these rip off careers and let them use their qualifications, oh! they are not qualified, do you mean they have not got A levels and Degrees, then why are they driving executive cars and charging many times more than solicitors and accountants. Oh ! it’s because we are all stupid, why don’t we sell ourselves using the internet…come on brightsparks out there! flood the internet with the tools to sell your own and make it easy to do ! perhaps we could use the local library and newsagents / post offices etc to issue details from a property folder. Then when the estate agents have closed, the empty shops can be re-opened as fish mongers, fruit and veg shops etc. If we could see the future,people will live and work locally and towns and villages will re-find their past!

    Well, they’ve had it good for a long time, but as they were part of the problem and helped to hype prices into the stratosphere, they can’t complain now!
