  1. Russia withdraws troops from Snake Island https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-europe-61987663
  2. This fella seems to have his finger on the pulse at the moment, I say him! Tony Blair says Labour has ‘recovered’ as he dismisses need for new party Keir Starmer ‘doing an amazing job’ but voters still confused about what party stands for, says former PM https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jun/30/tony-blair-labour-recovery-new-party-keir-starmer I know some consider him the devil, and I myself had a hard time supporting him after the second Gulf war, but he does continue to make valid points.
  3. Interesting: Keir Starmer Confirms He Has Ditched All Of The Pledges In Labour's 2019 Manifesto https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/keir-starmer-ditches-last-labour-manifesto_uk_62badcbfe4b080fb670a2baa
  4. I'm reminded of "Have I Got News for You's" opening credits where a Russkie is turning off the gas to Europe. This dates back prior to 2014!
  5. Any connection? https://www.totleyhistorygroup.org.uk/life-in-totley/people/charles-paul/
  6. Tory apathy and tactical voting was the only reason for a win in Wakefield for Labour. Its like a football team claiming a fantastic win when the other team didn't show up.
  7. I'd say anywhere between £20 and £60
  8. I had a DO NOT DISTURB on my office door this morning due to having an important video call. Three members of staff ignored it and just walked in. Not 3 at once, three separate occasions. And these people are teachers.
  9. Interesting figures in the elections in Wakefield: 2020: Labour: 13,166 2019: Labour: 17,925
  10. Tricky one for Starmer. Public support for the strike is all over the place so as usual he wants to fence sit and please all sides. Can't blame him because if he swings one way he'll get loads of abuse from the other side. Plus several Labour MPs get RMT donations. Five supportive Labour MPs received a total of £20,000 from the RMT in 2020
  11. Old and DM but a valid point: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-200193/Cracked-rail-missed-inspection.html and from another source: The technology is using enhanced track geometry as part of a broader automated track inspection program to detect defects in the rail track that the human eye can’t see. https://www.freightwaves.com/news/railroads-union-clash-over-use-of-track-inspection-technology
  12. Spot on. No matter who is in charge and however good and local the replacement candidates are, the Tories deserved to be punished. If I had my way I would have barred a Tory from standing. That might force all MPs to behave better.
  13. A shame because it shows some good old stuff. I think part of the problem is that on Virgin Media its tucked away way up in the channel 200s, when it ideally needs to be near Dave, UK Gold, Yesterday & Drama if its offering similar content.
  14. Hopefully it will change on Friday when the two by-election results are out.
  15. It made me laugh that the unions are celebrating that Merseyrail agreed a 7% pay rise without the intervention of the government. Yet just a few days ago they and the media were attacking the government for not doing enough and intervening!
