Our two bambinos had individual MMR jabs! Can clearly remember discussing with our GP who explained that there was a critical percentage which needed to be reached to ensure effectiveness of the vaccinations. Mind you in those days we had GP's who we knew and built up working relationships with!
And BT staff are better? Having terminated service with both companies in the not too distant past I would say that VM were a pleasure to deal with compared to the lying cheating company that we used to own! I would never have a telephone conversation with BT without recording it!
As somebody who does a bit of volunteering that involves contact with UC I can honestly say that despite hearing the hold music for up to 50 mins the system is pure SHIT! some of the staff are really helpful when you get through to a human. Then there is the assumption that everybody has t'intnet and is literate!
I repeat that the system is feckin shit!
Thank you for your "public School Mr Chips" beginning to your post. I don't know what was in your post as I had switched of by then, as I (mistakenly) thought I was in some alternative reality in which Grammar had become the be all and end all. Feel free to use the red pen on grammar as I do not give a shit if you ned to assert your literacy superiority!!
But the starting point is "private is good Public is bad" rather than What is actually needed and accept that sometimes companies put in unsustainably low bids just to get the contract and then try to cut staff costs (exept for the top managers) to a point where it is undeliverable and then who picks up the bill? think stagecoach and virgin in the railway setting or carillion!
Quite a lot of the heavy end of teh battery pack market at the more extreme end use 3 or more 18650 batteries which can deliver over 200 watts. Me I am quite happy with my vape that uses one battery and allows me to vape mouth to lung which is similar to fags, whilst the sub ohm beasts tend to be direct to lung jobbies. It is now 4 yrs 10 months and 21 days since I had a fag and the better half and the sprogs will most probably say it is the best thing I have ever done to give up the fags...Oh and unlike the opinionated anonymous twat above I do not have to hide behind facelessness.
JEEZ, Is this a post from a reconstituted Senator McCarthy? Red tape is communist but it is OK for a bunch of immoral bankers to screw over ordinary people is OK or chemical companies to poison people or car manufacturers to kill people with badly designed cars.
Perhaps the anonymous coward should grow a set of balls and buy a dictionary and find out what socialism actually is rather than copy and paste from Pai's arse cheeks.
What the fuck has our Train Station got to do with your hatred of the previous US President? For your information Scotland is not part of the US and although the Orange One has a golf course in Scotland he is not the most popular figure there so why don't you fuck off with your sad bitter post and return to breitbart!
In my (very limited) understanding the use of loans between the various "separate" companies means that the parasites have first call on whatever assets there are left in the "group" but of course that might be pure shyte and the parasites are really just interested in maintaining the pensions and welfare of the staff! I think I just saw a pig flying by.
Approx 42 years ago the smug assistant manager of the small clothing factory that I worked at thought he would be clever; he sent me to the ironmongers where his (only) mate worked to ask for a long weight! I was a bit sharper than him and worked out what was going to happen......So I went home. When I got into work the next morning the Manager asked where was I the previous afternoon? I smiled and replied that the long wait that the assistant manager sent me to get lasted until home time. He never tried taking the piss again!
Yep ! When I was with Virgin I regularly said to them every year "why do I have to have a phone line from you that I will not use...ever" and was consistently told that my package would be cheaper if I had a phone line in the package! Net result a phone line that was used precisely nil times in ten odd years. (had previously been bitten by an NTL phone bill in the hundreds and vowed never to use a cable phone again)
You talk about his being middle class and white yet you are happy for him to be sent to a Country in which the legal system is totally dependant on how rich somebody is. Most court appearances are settled by plea bargaining because the public defenders are over run, yet if you have the resources to fund a trial and employ an expensive lawyer you will receive much better "justice".
If you call our Young Offenders Institutions holiday camps I wonder how much experience you have of them?
The offence was committed here and as such he should be subject to the British legal system
"We won, and we the people now rule. Get used to it"
If you think that the people now rule You have an interesting perception of the world. I do not see many ""the people" in the cabinet but many bankers and billionaires who I would not describe as the People! Perhaps the pres is going to return manufacturing jobs to the USA by starting with all of the trump clothing manufacturing in Mexico....or is it different for him?
Perhaps he will have a little gate that he can slip them through!
"I can't see why spending time in a 3 * 4m cell in the US or the UK would reduce the risk of suicide, I can't imagine that either would be very happy situations."
So you are unable to picture a British Person totally isolated from his family as being more likely to attempt suicide than one who was able to see his family regularly in a British Jail! A very Binary way to look at the situation. But then again you are able to post anonymously which no doubt was also a binary decision....are you accountable or just hiding behind the anonymous coward posting?
The offence was committed in Britain and should be tried in Britain. Do you honestly believe that there is any justice over the pond ? (unless you are loaded)
"Despite my many enquiries, no phone company is willing to provide me with a 4G upgrade without raising my monthly bill from "affordable" to "insanity" in a single jump."
Funny that he was so unsuccessful when he contacted the phone companies. I contacted Vodafone when I bought a new 4g phone and reduced my monthly payments by £11 a month, my data allowance was increased to 6Gb and I also got a spotify subscription that would normally cost £10 pcm.
Lazy journalism methinks
Surely "capitalism" = "people" should read ""capitalism" = " some people"" as not everybody has the resources to Invest funds to create goods and services that build the capital value that is the foundation of the system" . Most of the people who actually invest their work do not benefit from the building of the capital value. Therefore Capitalism does not equal "people" but rather a small select band of people who benefit from the work efforts of others.
