    Sacking is surely the only option?

    Looks like the burglars are back!

    A taxi driver said something scary to me. "That'll be 33 quid" Feck me...half that in uk.

    Still think they were linked to some 'insider' at steam packet and/or airport last time. Not convinced this time yet...seems a bit amateurish by sounds.

    Basic Maths?

    Yet he only has a jacket worth £97 and £1 cash and still owes mum and dad (£2) £1 each...which totals £100. Accountants trick?

    £400K to seduce immigrants

    Most recruitment of skilled IT is done online these days. The jobs are already there. Work permits are no longer required in many cases. Recruitment people already spend thousands to advertise and all people need to do is apply. Skelly's job is to get the house prices down here, the infrastructure fixed and build up the leisure facilities and night life to attract people to stay here. And get the cost of living down. This spend is simply an admission of major failure on that front. Lots of people have come here from abroad and moved elsewhere within a few years, many that have stayed are struggling to afford to live here. The IOM recruitment model is bolloxed. ...simply because the island is run by spendthrift wankers who don't understand the private sector at all.

    The crash is coming.

    There's always a crash coming. The best way of coping is to buy your big purchases when they have just happened and plan your retirement between them.

    Pubs closing

    No. Buy stuff and be allowed to let it rot? Just to get a financial result and win? When planning has said it's a pub not some private housing development. Forced sale. Brewery get the f**k out. It's a pub. Sell it as one and disallow any covenants.

    Liam Neeson racism controversy

    It's his own fault...explained it the wrong way. In these days of social media you really have to think before you speak. That's why we got Brexit.

    Pubs closing

    Yeah...time planners got a grip and did a forced auction. F*** these brew*** tos*** Times up.

    Pubs closing

    Went passed the Liverpool Arms today...what a shit site all boarded up. Shame on you H&B - sell it to someone that CAN run a pub - and f**k your covenants.

    Do qualifications matter?

    I'd be all for this, but only when they are making one govt job redundant and not replacing it and have done an internal assessment as to who might be provisionally suitable. It is one way of reducing overall headcount. But the rules would still have to apply that the person should be qualified/experienced enough for the new role. If not, like in the real world...off you jolly well go. The taxpayer's govt is not a charity.

    Do qualifications matter?

    I abhor waste and incompetence...and being made to pay more and more towards it each and every year...and daft people that collectively can't be arsed to change things.

    Do qualifications matter?

    You need to see through the obfuscation of one blaming the other in all these things. They rely on Joe Public believing them...and not looking into the details. ETA: Numerous LA'S need to merge and downsize.

    Do qualifications matter?

    Not just that...there are too many people in that council...with all too many earning too much. Secretaries on nearly £40-50k? They have got rid of 30 odd staff last year or so...proves they were running inefficiently all that time. Another 30 need to go...including town centre manager for starters. The LA''s piss money away every year by all doing their own thing on all kinds of services and over-managing and paying well over the odds on maintaining their housing stocks.

    Do qualifications matter?

    He put the rates up blaming govt predominantly.
  23. Albert Tatlock

    Do qualifications matter?

    He might be doing it more eloquently, but he's only firing their bullets and we're the poor bastards who are still getting shot...at an ever increasing rate. What we need are far more qualified and experienced people who can be arsed about the island enough to replace the vast majority of our elected officials. ...ETA...and big enough brains and cahones to not be dictated to by Civil Servants only marginally more intelligent and wholly self interested in pay and pensions.

    Do qualifications matter?

    Equivalent experience is important...but exams are all about proving whether you can take in certain knowledge in a discipline and process it to make sensible related decisions/actions. Experience is verifiable over time and by references. But this barmy idea sounds like the latest government scheme to hide the unemployed unemployables. There are enough barely qualified/experienced numpties working in there already. Bottom line. They should match all requirements/qualifications for government jobs to their private sector equivalents.
