    Govt Pensions Revealed

    i get what you're saying and agree about graduated change, but an option for all newcomers is to only take contributions that would result in a final pension of 25k a year and if they want to have a bigger pension they take out a private one .

    Govt Pensions Revealed

    there is no sense in taking a lesser lump sum, if you drop dead tomorrow any dependants will have less or nothing. most folks take the biggest lump sum possible and maybe invest that so they end up with a weekly income similar to taking the little lump sum option.

    Win a house competition!

    should have done the draw, if there was one, in public. i don't see why people she knew should use a false name to enter cos i'd have thought she couldn't see whose name was on anything getting drawn out a hat??

    Wise decision... or just plain stupid

    i'm with wooley, my better half was in about a week after going to the GP a couple of months back, no big wait at all, in fact the swiftness of the appointment caused worry in itself expecting as we were for it to take months, but all good thankfully.
  5. there is still plenty of room left under the carpet, but the buck would stop long before IOMG had to justify itself.
  6. i think the race to part refers to the speed at which the car was travelling, they would have got there eventually doing 50mph instead of never as was the case doing whatever speed they were doing. and as they never got there i would assume things were dealt with without their presence anyway so were they really needed to be going in the first place?

    they could shorten any waiting list if it was politically necessary, after all the hoo har about moving the equipment ( the terms seemed to suggest they could if they wanted to ) they needed to show it 'worked' for the patients. all the waiting lists are just a matter of money, if you go private the waiting list disappears along with your money and the same hospital staff suddenly have time to see a patient, just not a poorer one from the waiting list.

    cos then you'd have to staff the new unit AND ward 5, the path taken means you only need to staff one of them

  12. and the course car was injured by the bike, i guess many other riders have been injured by the hedges and walls?? on a totally unrelated matter, i wonder if i was going the wrong way down a one way street and crashed whether my insurance would be rushing to pay me out, if at all..........

    Gravy Train Gets New Engine?

    the problem with the donegal railcar set is that is was never designed as a set, it was designed to be run as single units on a railway with turntables and always to run like an articulated lorry. once you couple them up back to back the engine at the front has to pull it's own weight which it was designed to and also a whole other unit with no drive coming from it as the reverse gear can't go as fast as the forward gear so it was always under powered and not really a true DMU.
