Apologies for derailment 

I didn’t hire him.

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

Rachel has tried every which way to re-offer her services. This last tweet wasn't the first time she's reached out. Government has made it very clear they do not want her to be involved. I want h

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

Some self-employed like me entitled to nothing, depending on sector. My savings were wiped out last lockdown I'm a couple of months away from defaulting on my mortgage. 2020 tough, 2021 could be the straw breaker. I assume there's lots of folk in the same position and so far my mental health is holding up. Lots won't be.

aren't the banks giving  mortgage breaks like they offered during the last lockdown ?

I'm wondering what flexibility Utilities like MUA and MG will offer? And the Govt Rates demands that will doubtless be rolling off the presses in a couple of months' time?

Nope just he was a laughing stock outside of the force and a thoroughly intolerable self indulged arrogant fool to anyone not in the club - narrow miss on the hire Derek - might be exceptional professionally but individually repellent - which in this current situation may actually be a trait our politicians could aspire to

He was more explicit on the 14 days clear, so all hope is not lost.....although its unlikely we will see 14 consecutive clear days for a bit yet

Wasn’t it 28 days clear last time? Two virus incubation cycles. Wonder what’s changed.

Its ironic how the government wage bill , 400 million and counting , hits home when we are in the position we are in currently . So many are going to be struggling , understandably , but the  gravy train keeps on rumbling on . Pensions and the head count need looked at but we all know they wont be . But you can bet we all will suffer when the adding up is done and they know what all this is costing .

I'm trying to recall what MBE stood for when applied to the little fat-one; isn't it something like  Mumbling Bleedin' Eejit?

Neither comment is fair. He is just a easy target for your frustration . I would place him head and shoulders above HQ.

I would too, but frankly Howard is a bumbling idiot who somehow has become our Chief Minister :huh:

The head count is being looked at, as per Derek F's post on the  Bus Heaven thread this morning.

They're revising it up. Continually.

And some senior employees are being bumped pay grades (upwards) while the crisis lasts. I'm sure there's justification, it just eludes me right now.

Bitterness aside, I agree that it's a sin how the self-employed are being treated. As ever with the IOM, total conflict of interest.

Yes he is as you say, head and shoulders above. Monday I worried he was loosing the plot but today he seemed calmer. Maybe HQ gave him a shoulder rub before they took the stage
