  1. If they join, they probably face being automatically expelled, whole thing is a right mess and a good test of fan power, sadly this particular brand of super wealthy owner is used to getting what they want. Re: more competitive, not necessarily the title race per se but the range of points is currently 60 points between top and bottom, 2 years ago two teams hit 100 points, that can’t be good for the wider game. Incidentally, in my entire lifetime England haven’t won a single semi final, the Premier League was supposed to boost the national game, whoops.
  2. Let them go, Premier League rule L9 prohibits any club participating in unsanctioned events. No more Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup or Champions League for those 6. They can play each other each week, interest will wane. English game will become far more competitive in the long run as ‘smaller’ clubs will share the spoils. Players will have to be banned from internationals too, shame but needs must.
  3. Surely the real inflation rate, that is the rate of inflation adjusted for inflation is always 0%?🤔
  4. I think you’ll find that they are ‘portfolio’ based subjects where kids have to produce a range of evidence. I can only imagine they have been brought in first to work upon those compulsory portfolios of evidence, the majority of which will be Btec qualifications. Some of those subjects also appear to require specialist equipment or facilities that may not be available at home. In order to comply with social distancing I would imagine the school has had to limit the numbers of kids in and has prioritized accordingly, what would you prefer they did?
  5. This is the bit I don’t understand, if 30+ kids can be in an enclosed space from the 19th, why can’t everything else open at the same time. 1,000 kids+ can go in the school canteen but you have to queue outside the chippy.
  6. But they can’t all be back tomorrow, the current position is 2m social distancing. I understand a typical classroom would fit 8 kids, you’re trying to fit a quart into a pint pot.
  7. I think, and this is entirely my own opinion, that bad mouthing anyone for NEVER (not my capitals) taking risks is entirely disrespectful. This entire thread is about Covid, I am saddened that the OP feels that Health Care professionals, predominantly public sector employees, haven’t encountered significant risk, often with the loss of their own lives. Whilst this risk is potentially managed and to some extent mitigated, “NEVER take a risk” is such a casual comment.
  8. Did you contact the school and express your dissatisfaction? If so, what was the reply?
  9. Just to clarify, could you please suggest what proportion of private sector employees regularly take ‘risks’, that is exposing themselves to danger as opposed to exposing shareholders to financial loss. Could you also suggest why the following, predominantly public sector jobs, in your own words, NEVER take a risk: Fire Officers Police Officers Prison Officers Paramedics Bomb Disposal Officers Surgeons Coastguards
  10. I don’t know how many are out and about or whether that is more than normal, but at Port Mooar there were 8 cars just now, in my experience the usual average is less than 1. I went via Shanks’ Pony btw.
  11. And just 3 1st doses yesterday and none so far today, I simply do not understand the strategy
  12. I refer to my post from over 2 months ago, either contact the police or their employer.
  13. Why is there this ongoing narrative that the private sector is oh so much better/efficient/productive than the public sector? Does no-one in the private sector ever ring in sick, work the system, pull a fast one, nip out for a fag, turn up late, get caught with their hand in the till, fiddle their expenses, delay payment to suppliers, fleece customers, rip off old dears, sell dodgy goods, short change customers, mis-sell insurance, mis-sell warranties, pay below minimum wage, pay excessive bonuses, avoid tax, falsely claim subsidies, launder money, insider trade, break the banking system, I could go on. The public sector isn't perfect, but we all need it really, despite what the most ardent free market advocate would believe. To claim the private sector is so much better is somewhat narrow minded, why is UK health spending about 40% per capita of US health spending if the private sector is so efficient? Please put a different record on.
  14. Scrap 90% of the state, I’d love to see that list. Presume: Education, Health, Fire, Social Care, Prison System, Coastguard, Libraries, Museums, Heritage, Post Office, Trading Standards, Health and Safety Executive, Building Control et al. Which 10% would you keep? Police, Defence, Judiciary, Regulators?
  15. The UK based exam boards regulated by Ofqual cancelled this summer’s exams in January. This announcement refers to Cambridge International qualifications, these are not regulated by Ofqual, hence the separate announcement. Surely part of governance is to act equitably, are you suggesting otherwise?
