  1. It’s the sort of things they want to get done (and I don’t mean Brexit) that worries me
  2. Totally agree-said friend lost previous job as provider withdrew due to unprofitably. System totally wrong-eg people with DownsSyndrome have to undergo regular PIP assessments WHY! Chromosomes aren’t going to change
  3. I’ve used Hermes in the past to send charity parcels and had quite good service from home collections to delivery. However in the last couple of months the charity forum members nationwide are reporting issues with both collection and delivery. I couldn’t log into the website and requested link for password change which didn’t work either. After 2 weeks I’ve still had no reply to my complaint
  4. My Nan, my mum and me have all chanted this mantra- can’t say it works but makes me feel a bit better when I’m putting wet stuff on the clothes horse
  5. Commentators are predicting a softer Brexit now Boris doesn’t have to cow tow to the ERG or the DUP
  6. The Labour Party failed for several reasons: . Their wishy/washy policy on Brexit . Jeremy Cornyn, alienating the traditional labour voter . throwing money at it leftist policies without clear costings . An electorate who are too young/have forgotten or forgiven the Thatcher years and brutal decimation of manufacturing
  7. Believe me, it is possible and it did happen - I don’t lie!! it’s a regular occurrence in Hillsborough where there are long waits and 2 or more busses turn up together.
  8. In the 70s my mum worked at Middlewood and on her day off would sometimes bring four elderly ladies home for tea-their only excursion outside. All four had been placed in the hospital decades before for social ‘crimes’ such as prostitution, pilfering and having illegitimate children-prior to the welfare state. By the time of the Reform Act these women were so institutionalised they had to remain in ‘care’. My friend now works in the community where people with learning difficulties and enduring mental health are cared for 24 hrs in 2-4 bedrooms bungalows. They attend regular social activities/excursions and have a variety of brought in therapies. I know which I would favour.
  9. I think you’ve missed the point-the escalation of family breakdown and unemployment of the last few decades combined with lower standards in education, health and other social provision has weakened the work ethic for a lot of people whose offspring then perpetuate having no example or motivation
  10. Is this supposed to compensate bus users for the terrible service they receive. Given 30 minute waits for 51 and 52 services this week and then have 2 busses arrive together I can only conclude that busses are ‘riding shotgun’ for a cowboy service. No doubt my complaint will elicit the standard weather excuse- after all it has been a bit cold/sunny/drizzly this week
  11. ooh- can of worms opened here! So where to start family, education , lack of social activities, mental health provision, relationship breakdown, poverty etc. My work ethic came from family and education but was nurtured by the rest- not everyone is so fortunate
  12. Glad to see the beggar who assaulted me in King Street 18 months ago and her partner were brought to justice but sorry their victim, a middle aged woman, had to suffer
  13. Not red wine-makes the headache worse but white can make recovery tolerable 😀
  14. I don’t know enough about Epstein’s activities to say all his victims were of age but he certainly used his power and influence to groom and coerce women. The documentary I watched seemed to also implicate his partner, Robert Maxwell’s daughter, who also socialised with Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. I think this will echo Jimmy Saville, perpetrator dead, damage limitation for associates and a lot of damaged, unsatisfied victims
  15. Any viral infection will have to run it’s course so all you can do is treat symptoms. Various over the counter/dietary treatments available to help boost immunity- I find Propolus works for me
