Companies will need to train more British workers to fill vacancies when the new immigration system kicks in requiring foreign workers to have qualifications and the ability to speak English, Priti Patel, the home secretary, has said.
In a round of television and radio interviews, she said 8 million people between the ages of 16 and 64 were “…
Who’d be a bike company though. Endlessly re-tooling to chase the latest trend in a declining market.
It’s the bike companies that have driving the change, not consumers- e-bikes might be the first time, off the top of my head, that consumers are pushing for change, and it’s costing the manufacturers to innovate, unlike other recent c…[Read more]
Premium brand you say, Bogner! Very, very expensive and, dare I say it, generally absolutely minging! Usually a very busy design with lots of gold and phrases written on them, favoured by the Russians . I like looking out for them when I’m boarding, fair brightens up my day! Get one and don’t forget the photo!
Which is a good time to remind you…[Read more]
I’m a bit confused by all this- I accept that people make mistakes with stuff like this on a nice day, even in winter, and to a large degree rescue is there for this reasons- most folk in trouble have made a mistake of sort sort or other, and it’s, imo, not necessary to judge.
But, given the weather of the last couple of days, and the warnings…[Read more]

I’m looking to get away with the boy on a cheap long weekend from 20th feb to 23rd feb ( i know , the back end of school hols), flights to geneva are looking cheap, but I cant find any cheap accomodation in any of the ski resorts, its either mega bucks or I have to book a whole week

Been told by one child that their mum will ‘be having words with us’ when she picks up as we removed all phones and ipads from the bedroom as is our house rule
The usual reasoning given for this is that otherwise it would be difficult for the child to contact their parent for an emergency middle-of the-night extraction should the sleepover go wro…[Read more]
What do people think is a fair and just policy regarding freedom of movement and immigration?
A lot of leave votes seem to have been attributed to a desire to close down immigration, and several posters on here have alluded to their children’s opportunities being curtailed, but obviously those comments apply to movement within Europe.
I’ve seen…[Read more]

I still look back on this with wonderment- walking out of school when one of the athletics team cycles past, carrying a javelin. Somebody calls out to him, he swivels round, and the javelin gets caught in the back wheel. You can picture the rest.

I’ve a Mk2 (and an E-m5mk1) for sale if you’re interested- only selling because I’ve bought an E-M1 mk2.
Lenses, I’ve the 45mm, nice, fast, sharp, cheap, but I don’t like the focal length much. 12-50 kit lens, has a decent macro, fly by wire zoom which takes a bit of getting used to, but is a definite cut above the 14-42 kit lens, cheap 40-150…[Read more]
They are getting a lot of stick for their ‘upgrade’ bricking of trade-ins. Basically completely stopping re-use.
Why is this an issue? People want to trade the kit in, but then still want to be able to use it/sell it on? If it’s traded in, it’s not really yours any longer. Sonos can do what they want with it, even if they’ve not physically tak…[Read more]
