  1. Sometimes bonuses, if you're going to get them each year, are just a means of paying extra money without pension contributions.
  2. It’s far less worse, but a few old snowflakey men like Stu.
  3. Hush! We don't want to prompt him to further action. Doing little, maybe a bit of casework here and there for constituents is absolutely the best MHK we could have hoped he could become.
  4. So the budget that isn't a budget announces ... This is a radical shift from the manifesto Boris was elected on. Boris wasn't swept from power on a wave of people demanding bigger bonuses for bankers and a tax cut for the highest earners. So how can they claim any democratic legitimacy?
  5. So they've refused to supervise break time and dinner and the government have sent the kids home? But when I was at CRHS they just opened the doors and kicked the kids out, a prefect might have monitored the corridor. What's changed?
  6. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naples "Founded by Greeks in the first millennium BC, Naples is one of the oldest continuously inhabited urban areas in the world. In the eighth century BC, a colony known as Parthenope (Ancient Greek: Παρθενόπη) was established on the Pizzofalcone hill. In the sixth century BC, it was refounded as Neápolis. The city was an important part of Magna Graecia, played a major role in the merging of Greek and Roman society, and was a significant cultural centre under the Romans. Naples is also considered a capital of the Baroque, beginning with the artist Caravaggio's career in the 17th century and the artistic revolution he inspired.[7] It was also an important centre of humanism and Enlightenment. Naples' historic city centre is the largest in Europe and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A wide range of culturally and historically significant sites are nearby, including the Palace of Caserta and the Roman ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Naples is also known for its natural beauties, such as Posillipo, Phlegraean Fields, Nisida and Vesuvius. Neapolitan cuisine is noted for its association with pizza, which originated in the city, as well as numerous other local dishes. Restaurants in the Naples' area have earned the most stars from the Michelin Guide of any Italian province" Obviously there was no Advertising Standards Authority in 1970. Anyway Morecombe and Llandudno also claim to be the Naples of the North! And Weymouth the Naples of England.
  7. Surely that’s only practical.
  8. The ancient tradition of sacking the Liberal Vannin leader from the post of Minister for Health after a year continues.
  9. There were a few on Shore Road Port Erin during the ceremony. Mainly old people revving their motorbikes and ostentatiously talking during the minutes silence.
  10. Good idea. You don’t go to a music festival and only watch one band.
  11. Are there any minutes silences I need to be aware of?
  12. According to this pole in June it’s 62% for a monarch and 22% for an elected head of state … https://yougov.co.uk/topics/society/articles-reports/2022/06/01/platinum-jubilee-where-does-public-opinion-stand-m
  13. The look that says "shut the fuck up Mum"
  14. Don't forget they were also part of the body making the rules and could have tried to amend them.
  15. Judging from Manxfisherman’s link. They’re queuing from about Borough Market along the Southbank to Lambeth Bridge then crossing over and doubling back to Westminster Abbey?
