  1. It looks like they're after the working time directive, i.e. they want firms to be able to insist that workers work over 48 hours per week. I expect they'll badge this as "giving workers the choice" when it's no such thing. All this at a time when the case for a 4 day week is getting stronger.
  2. I see fishing and sea food business can now claim up to £100k each for lost income. I'm just checking how this works: (largely) vote for Brexit, get Brexit, start losing money because of Brexit, get given other people's money to be protected from the consequences of your own decisions. Is that it?
  3. Absolutely, I just think anyone who believes Brexit is going to help money stay in the country is severely deluded. The UK is already a tax haven, thanks to Crown Dependencies, though this was limited in more recent years due to EU regulations, but with Brexit those barriers to tax evasion and avoidance are now gone. Remember - some of the main beneficiaries of these are organised crime gangs and terrorists.
  4. If the Brexiters in government really, really care about keeping money in the UK, they'll use their new political independence to make sure companies can't offshore their profits and avoid paying corporation tax. Let's see if that happens.
  5. There are certainly some rights issues with how the police retain some data, and with some of it it's probably a good thing that it's been wiped. But it now turns out with this deletion that it includes information that was supposed to be retained indefinitely because it relates to people convicted of serious offences.
  6. This idea of compensating people who are worse off because of Brexit is surely a non-starter. Whose money are they going to use to do that with? And for how long - indefinitely?
  7. Which is worth precisely nothing. They have broken so many promises relating to Brexit that any assurances they give are valueless.
  8. So that's why he's on the cheap hair dye
  9. BBC article here This is pretty worrying. Losing DNA evidence that may have been gathered while investigating serious crimes will hinder the ability to link suspects to other offences. It will also affect enhanced disclosures via the Disclosure and Barring Service (that social care and health professionals, teachers, childcare staff etc have to provide) because the enhanced disclosure doesn't just provide record of conviction, but also records of police contact. That can be particularly relevant with domestic abuse, where police can be called multiple times to an address but don't arrest the perpetrator because the victim is too afraid to make a statement.
  10. A promising start. I took the lowest dose for my weight (18mg) an hour before I went to bed, and although it took me a while to get to sleep I didn't have any restless leg. My legs felt heavier than usual and I wasn't worried that I wouldn't be able to get to sleep - it's usually the tell-tale tingle in my legs that give me the fear that I'm not going to be able to drop off. It's only one night of course, so I'll need to do it a few more times to see if it continues to help, but a good start.
  11. It is quite pricey for sure. It arrived today, it's the oil you put under your tongue - I won't use it tonight because I'll be on the booze tonight and won't know if it worked, but tomorrow is a dry night so I'll give it a go then
