£67k to work in London for however many days a week. No, it isn't a huge salary.

I'd rather have the likes of Skinner in Parliament, than not.

I'm bemused that there is an option to not participate.

Having just been subjected to a remote Windows 7 'upgrade' I concur wholeheartedly. 


The upgrade got half way through then my computer locked me out. Now I am back in I find half my work essential software has 'gone missing' despite being reassured it would be reinstalled as part of the upgrade.


We use VOIP phone things so with no PC I am forced to use my Blackberry to phone the IT helpdesk despite having rubbish reception.


The joys of working from home.


I'm pretty sure you have just described my forthcoming Thursday, when I too will receive an 'upgrade'

His eyes are terrifying.


Not as much as his decision making.

Are there any proper 7s available though?


Seems to be a decent punt.


Whats the under 21s 7 like?


Louis Jouffret is a bit so-so. That said, the stand-off in the U19s, Declan Patton, looks a real prospect. The U16s scrum half is the one to look out for.

#3007680 'Well Run' clubs

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 05 October 2014 - 09:35 AM

My simple definition: a well run club is run as a business. Primary objective; balance the books. After that, sustainable growth on-field and off


Regarding the ownership of your own stadium, historically, stadia was designed to host sporting events, nothing more, nothing less. Today, the design incorporates far more facilities/lettable space to turn a fourteen times a year income stream, to a minimum of five days a week. Saints and Warrington achieved this at concept design stage, I think Widnes have also have business/conference facilities, too/ Leeds have invested to obtain such opportunities.

Warrington's first half halbacks; Myler and Ratchford. Warrington's second half halfbacks; Myler and Bridge.


I know which pairing I thought was the most effective.

#2965744 The Lib Dems and self-congratulation

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 26 July 2014 - 06:27 AM

The thing that really winds me up is that they're doing things way beyond that that had the nation up in arms in Thatcher's time.  For example, in our area nearly 20% of mental health beds have been cut in two years (Norfolk and Suffolk mental health trust had 600 beds in 2012 but cut this to 481 by 2014) yet no-one seems to care, it's austerity after all and we need to save our pennies.


The Coalition have been lucky with the very low interest rates meaning that there's a big old rump of people who are quite comfortable now and aren't feeling the pinch anywhere near the way those impacted by the sharpest cuts have been.  If we had even scratching the interest rates of the early 1990s then we'd be seeing far more dissatisfaction...


It will be interesting to see the how the economy reacts and the public reaction when interest rates, inevitably start to rise.

#2961582 where is the justice in this?

Murder or manslaughter, four years for killing someone whilst driving under the influence is ridiculous
