  1. We watched it through Iplayer on our smart tv from about 1pm yesterday.
  2. And there was me thinking work had blocked something else, was worried what I was going to do in quiet times. Thanks
  3. 'H' had an operation on his back on Sunday at Walton and everything went well. He was moved out of intensive care on Monday, and yesterday they were waiting for him to be transferred to the spinal injury unit at Southport. Unfortunately, and understandably, Gav has pulled out of the TT. Really hoping the big guy has a full and speedy recovery.
  4. It's the way things are headed in the future. Increased labour "flexibility" (or disposability). It's the natural culmination of 150 years of capitalism, division of labour and wage slavery. Why hire permanent employees when you can hire temporary workers for less pay and offer no no pension or other benefits? And with a saturated labour supply, local workers are forced to take up ever lower and lower pay. If you're a temp and go from contract to contract, you'll find the pay you're offered for each new contract going down and down. Even retail service and hospitality jobs are now being done t
  5. Another thing, how come all the office jobs are advertised by employment agencies on the job centre website! I'm lucky enough to have a job but I'm not at all happy and would like to find another. I check the job centre daily and there maybe a couple that I could be interested in, but it would be nice to know the name of the companies that have the vacancies.
  6. Drivers who don't dip their lights until they've more or less blinded you with their full beam, and the 'twits' who think their vehicles look smarter when they have the fog lights on (and there's not a bit of fog to be seen anywhere!) - Do they not realise how bright they are to oncoming traffic in the dark.
