  1. Npe. You're missing a fundamental point on this. Universities have a public duty to declare a student 'fit to practice' what they are teaching. In this particular circumstance the university felt that they could not. In fact the university's terms and conditions of the course specifically included lines on the very thing the person was kicked off the course for. So... 1) They couldn't state he was fit to practice 2) he breached terms and condition of being on the course Just what should the university have done do you think? (Oh, and by the way, a legal appeal upheld their decision - just in case you were wondering). You beat me to the fitness to practice thing by seconds. They are correct that they have this responsibility. It is specifically laid out to them in guidance from government. For me, the whole rest of the argumant is irrelevant.
  2. I really shouldn't on a school night... but gonna head down there after work today, probably via Kommune for some food and prinks, and with an ill-advised finish in Shakespeares that already makes me realise Im not going to work tomorrow.. Im thinking it sounds like a good crawl. And mostly downhill too!
  3. Tweet from Bishop Thomas Tobin "@ThomasJTobin1: A reminder that Catholics should not support or attend LGBTQ “Pride Month” events held in June. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful for children." Easily corrected
  4. Well... At least you didn't do this... https://metro.co.uk/2019/04/19/hilarious-google-maps-****-blurs-totally-wrong-body-part-9263484/ Or did you?
  5. I do love these constant reminders about the 17 million who voted leave, despite the repeated calculations of what a no-deal would actually cost us as a country. Always puts me in mind of something else tho... Oh yes: https://www.ft.com/content/6ec09b2e-5388-11e8-b24e-cad6aa67e23e QUOTE: About 17m workers possess the numeracy skills of a primary schoolchild Coincidence?
  6. I don't think this is a daft question at all. And I must admit that I haven't done any research on this because I am way too busy at the mo - just browsing on my lunch breaks. But in my role I do deal with issues that refer to the home nations, such as devolution, so have some knowledge of the matter. The way I understand it, it is the UK that is a member of the EU, NOT England, Scotland, Wales and NI. That means if the UK leaves the EU, Scotland would then have to leave the UK in order to apply for their own membership into the EU. This would likely come with all the strings attached to any new country wanting to join - such as having to adopt the Euro and all trading / lawmaking conditions. There are many of these conditions and the UK only adopt 3 of them - a better 'deal' than any other country who is a member (I believe Denmark adopt 4). Should Scotland be successful and given EU member status then, has been said elsewhere, it is likely a hard border will be required, along with currency changes etc. Whether Scotland will actually decide leaving the UK and joining the EU would then be worth it is debatable, but not impossible. Happy to be corrected on any of the above - like I say, I haven't had time to research.
  7. One of the options for government, already suggested by a few Ministers, is for them to vote to change the law in order to allow a third vote. Another is for them to ask the Queen to suspend Parliament ans then restart it again, making it a different 'session'. I wonder if May has enough b@lls to try either of these optiions? Cabinet meeting today so I guess we will find out.
  8. I was up in the north east yesterday, visiting the outlaws, so thought i might pop a long to see these poor sould and have a laugh... https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/1101391/brexit-march-leave-eu-nigel-farage-march-to-leave-brexit-news-latest QUOTE: "the protestors were forced into taking a five-mile detour after forgetting the Tees Transporter Bridge is closed on Sundays."
  9. My bold and corrections in same for you. Amazing how your kids could learn that studd when clearly you didn't though...
  10. Did you expect more? Though I suspect that the idea is that the party feeling that they need to use said service will excuse themselves for a moment and go to the bar, then ask out of earshot of the other. You'd be rather worried if your date asked in front of you, after dinner when the bill turned up, wouldn't you? Especially if you've done nothing wrong and they just decided they don't like you. But on the whole it has to be a good thing.
  11. Kelham Island was mental this last weekend. Queues to get in Peddler and no room in some of the places around it - including the Workshop and the various brewery taps. This was as early as 5-6pm. Whilst queueing I also noticed a little antiques / curio shop had opened up opposite Peddler as well, so not just the bars doing trade. Though I do wonder whether they will get anything on a wet Monday afternoon. Good to see, though. Yes, it's literally NOT the Champs Elysees
  12. According to a conversation a friend of mine had with Chris and Kate last week, they are hoping for it to be open in 6 WEEKS not months. It does sound a tad ambitious to me. But then I guess as long as the bar area is done, they can always do the upstairs while it is operating.
  13. You forgot the chocolate shop, the party shop, the gunsmiths, the music shop, the jewellery shop and the wedding shop. But yeah, like 'literally' none
  14. Try this one - which is on Stoney Streey - in the Lace Market... https://www.ncp.co.uk/find-a-car-park/car-parks/nottingham-stoney-street/ 1 hour £4.00 1 to 2 hours £8.00 2 to 3 hours £13.00 3 to 4 hours £17.00 4 to 24 hours £22.00 Earlybird £7.50
  15. Yep. The £120m revamp of the town centre looks actually to be mostly on track with the new town square and indoor shopping centre linking the new Market and old Alhambra centre due to be completed by the end of next year - something SCC will be wondering how is possible! Whether it improves the overall feel of the town one can only hope. It might just end up giveing the spice-heads something nice to look at.
