Effect of Coronavirus

It's unbelievable that at a time like this there are people moaning about not getting pay rises.

You mean like the nurses the UK Government claimed were so important in the covid pandemic and are now shafting?

You're right. I'm not complaining. Then again, I got my pay rise, don't know if that makes a difference. :whistle

Me too. And my annual bonus.

Me too.

And I got a week extra paid holidays to take in the next year.

And loads of OT because of all you steamers.


I got to carry 10 days (2 weeks since I only do 5 days) so that makes 59 days off next holiday year (inc public/bank holidays and 2 weeks over xmas/new year). Holiday year starts next month. And I'll still be "working" from home for the foreseeable future.

IMO Swinney should NOT be sacked for this. We must encourage an atmosphere where clear mistakes are allowed to be fixed. We've seen how not having that leads to politicians digging their heels in (Westminster) and making a situation worse.

If the guy makes one mistake after another then fair enough but one mistake (howler though it was) should not see him sacked and Labour and the Tories need to pipe down.

It is one howler after another though.

The decision to close schools was a howler. The decision to cancel exams was a howler. Being party to the lockdown policies which have killed 000s, wrecked the economy and destroyed livelihoods was a howler.

The Scottish and UK governments collectively will go down as the worst in this country’s history.

Not only should they all resign, they all face prosecution for crimes against humanity. 
 

Life imprisonment with no opportunity for parole and nothing less.

I wonder if the Tories will back any Labour call for the resignation of the UK Education Minister?

I have had no sympathy for Hearts till now as everything they tried was out of self interest and at the expense of other clubs...

But this is a right kick in the nuts.

Celtic and Aberdeen players screw up.

Neither club is punished.

Their opponents suffer cancellation and potential fixture congestion.

Now this... How can this make any sense?

Why are they back in training so early in the first place. It's over 2 months until their season starts.

They didn't know what league they would be playing in so we're right to prepare accordingly.

Also... With a cup semi final approaching, it is only fair they get the same preparation time as their opponents.

Personally I suggest a free pardon if they can make you disappear down some deep dark hole......................

Forgot about the semi, take it that comes before their league resumption.

Why don’t you put me in hospital big hardman?
If you can
 
Surprised you didn't claim I threatened to have done that previously.

With all the lies and imaginary conspiracies, you are going the right way about receiving at least a STDC, with you losing your mind.

I wonder if [mention=15909]Cookie Monster[/mention] is sending Stuart Dickson messages arranging to fight
and then not turning up
like the coward he is
Just to clear that post up, are you claiming I sent messages to that person before to arrange a fight?

I've no doubt you won't answer that, sort of sums you up.

Was out for a meal on Saturday night, got chatting to an older couple who had decided to have a couple of days away.

The hotel they were staying in had charged them £250 for 2 nights.

This hotel, I've stayed there twice, is in the £60-£80 a night range.

The prices of drinks in the bar we were in were a joke, £8.25 for a glass of wine, £5.49 for a pint of Tennents and cocktails, I was there a year ago last week, had jumped from £6 to £8.

Ripping people off to make up for the previous months of no/low income doesn't sit well with me so feck them.

That is quite a hike in prices- particularly on the nightly rate, customers will soon get fly for this and won’t return, my sons haircut for example has went up a pound, now I don’t mind this because they will likely have additional overheads for the booking system, masks and sanitiser etc coupled with possible less custom.

I have always been the way that companies need to make profit but shouldn’t tear the @rse out of it...
