  1. It must be some kind of record? We've gone a whole 24 hours plus on this thread without anyone posting (moaning). Well I'll start you all off for the day. Some of you aren't going to like the fact that Nissan are happy with the UK's Brexit deal with the EU & that they're here for the long term, with thousands of jobs, both at the Sunderland plant & ancillary industries secured. "Japanese car maker Nissan has told the BBC its Sunderland plant is secure for the long term as a result of the trade deal reached between the UK and the EU. It said it will move additional battery production close to the plant where it has 6,000 direct employees and supports nearly 70,000 jobs in the supply chain." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/business-55757930 Despite Project Fear postings, hundreds of pages back & months ago the when some here predicted that Sunderland would be an example of a post Brexit, unemployment abyss. No doubt we'll be treated on here to baseless conspiracy theories for Nissan carrying on trading? I'm looking forward to "Well they've been promised millions of secret Govt money just to stay" or "Well the Govt are going to scrap all the labour laws, so even if someone loose an arm on the production line, they'll be given a sticking plaster & told to get back to work." There you go, I've started you off. I'm sure many will come up with more imaginative reasons why Nissan are happy to keep manufacturing in Sunderland? Off you go, have a nice day. Looks the workers of Sunderland will be having a rosy post Brexit future, much to the disappointment to many on here?
  2. The Govt has taken the decision not to decriminalise non-payment of the TV licence fee. The BBC said the current system was the fairest & most effective for licence fee evaders. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/entertainment-arts-55754914#referrer=https://www.google.com&csi=0
  3. Only the second Catholic though. The other was JFK.
  4. They've just mentioned it. Report lasted about 10 seconds.
  5. Yes you can make the request by either a simple letter or email to the authority, making it clear that you're submitting your question in FOI grounds. As long as it meets the criteria, (see post 2), you'll be entitled to a response. Just ask if it was put out to tender & who won? You'll be able to find the local authority's Chief Exec or council leader from a simple Internet search. Let us know how you get on?
  6. Just showed a report on Calendar that while many over 80's have been vaccinated in Sheffield with some surgeries coming to the end of that cohort, at least one surgery, (didn't catch the name), are yet to start their vaccination program. They also interviewed a doctor from the Heeley Green surgery, who has now been told that they won't receive an vaccines for at least 9 more days, this at the same time when Sheffield Arena is supposedly due to open for as a mass vaccination centre. However, on top of this, the number of vacancies supplied to the Yorkshire region as a whole are to be reduced & redirected to other parts of England, as we have been far ahead of these other regions & they need to catch up with their vaccinations.
  7. Here you are. This link should help. https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/official-information/#:~:text=Under the Freedom of Information,local council or state school.&text=You can ask for any,a public authority may hold. As far as I know, you can make an FOI request to any public body.
  8. Think you'll find that's his actual size. He's tiny.
  9. "What's Your Definition Of Elderly?" If you answer yes to the following? Do you want me to help you to the day room? I know people in their 80's who can give me a run for my money in my early 60's. On the reverse side, I've come across people in their 20's who act older then me. As long as you have your health, it's all about attitude & how you actually view yourself. Additionally, try & surround yourself & involve yourself with people who have an upbeat view of life.
  10. Frank Lampard, currently managing Frank Lampard's Chelsea.
  11. My bold. And you know what? You can help them out by purchasing their products, insuring that the various industries keep afloat, especially in these pandemic times, thereby ensuring that salaries are paid, resulting that those wages are spent in local communities, keeping further businesses sustained. I'm not advocating that people should refuse to by goods from markets abroad, including the EU, that's their choice but look to your fellow British workers & the industries we have first & consider using your purchasing power in this country first, before you spend it on imported goods. It amazing how many Remain voters on here shout & moan, (and yes the moans are still tinged by the fact that they perceived to be 'loosers' in their own eyes, in a democratic vote, where somehow many can't accept that it wasn't ever going to be a best of 3 vote, or they can't accept that somehow their vote didn't carry more weight than the next person's vote), about the plight of British industries in this ever developing Brexit period, yet care little to spend money on British goods. There are approximately 33 million working adults in the UK. imagine the internal market benefits if all spent the majority on British made goods & how this would spark additional industries to start up, knowing they'd be part of a buoyant home market?
  12. But you're not moving on. If people who voted Leave actually stayed off this thread for say a week, we'd see nothing but a echo chamber with disillusioned Remain voters trying to out do one another with tales of woe, much like a sad Brexit parody of Monty Python's 'Four Yorkshire men', sketch as to who can top who, with their despair. Some people do honestly seem to wallow in their perceived misery. You say we're in the early stages, so at least you've recognised that, less than a month in. Another who has their heart set on not trying to make it work. You just sit on the sideline.
