    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    On the subject of the NHS, and although written in jest still perhaps an indicator of one of the many reasons it’s struggling. (Stolen from Facebook.) We found ourselves in A&E, sent by the GP. I’d forgotten that A&E is like Dante’s Inferno. Or King Charles’ latest portrait. Which I rather...

    If you feel that it’s so bad here, why don’t you live in Northern Europe. I’ve never been able to understand those people who moan about where they live, but refuse to do anything about it.

    A good friend of mine at the time (Alan Barnett) competed in many TTs in many categories. It was only the fact that he was around in the era of Agostini on his MV Agusta that prevented him ever bettering second place. He never admitted it to me, but knowing him well I’m sure it was the ultimate...

    So the nearly 30% of the country’s tax revenue that they’re already paying isn’t enough? Are you trying to get rid of all of them? “The share of income tax revenue contributed by the top 1% of taxpayers rose from 11% in 1978–79 to 29% in 2023–24, despite big cuts in top rates of tax in the...

    Does bad proofreading / spelling put you off an advert?

    The plural of CV is CVs :wallbash: That aside, I carried out a similar rejection process several years ago when I was a school governor and assessing applications for a new teaching post.
