  1. When I was working in the NHS, we had to advertise senior medical jobs in European journals before we could go elsewhere, even if we knew that a particular specialist role could only be recruited from say North America. Even when we did get an applicant from outside of Europe, the hoops we had to jump through before the individual was granted a work permit meant long delays before we got the person in post. As such, many patients had their treatment delayed because of the EU rules applicable to the UK. It’s always been a question in my mind how so many non-Europeans seem to be able to ‘work’ in the Premiership and lower leagues apparently without the same restrictions/conditions.
  2. No, we’re still hanging on sonny!!
  3. If there was to be a second Ref., then presumably the only options which should be on the paper will be leave options (i.e. one or more options based on likely deals plus one option for no deal). As there has already been a ref which concluded that we should leave, the option to remain should NOT appear on the second ref paper. If remain is allowed as one of the options, then a multiple choice leave option merely waters down the leave vote leading to a likely remain outcome. Or am I being stupid.........!?
  4. Neither does he! He hasn’t voted positively for anything has he, so he’s a perfect choice as the next PM FFS! Quite how the wishes of 17m+ people have been interpreted as not wanting to leave without a deal I don’t know. Get rid of the lot of them (good start Boris!) and start again!
  5. If Corbyn is the answer, I don’t dare ask the question!!
  6. If we get a GE soon, it’ll be like a new referendum. Vote Johnson and leave on 31st October with or without a deal. Vote Corbyn and goodness knows what we’ll get!
  7. Good grief! That’s a bit early for an evening kick off!
  8. Have a look out to Balloch just by Loch Lomond and get the train in from there. Good bars and great views of the first Munro you can climb while you’re there!!!
  9. Lived near Durham until I was 26 and have now supported the Rams for nearly 50 years. Only set foot in the BBG when I was 33 so there are a few of us around who ‘supported’ from afar. I do manage around 10 games a season now (home and away) but not possible to get there more frequently. However, being a kid with a bedroom plastered with photos of Rams players and a subscription to the Ram newspaper (as it was in those days) didn’t make me less of a fan (or did it?) My Saturdays or Tuesdays don’t hurt any less if we lose than if I’d been to the game. Perhaps I’m a half (or less!) fan but I still regard myself as a supporter and will be, unflinchingly, until my last breath.
  10. The last line just makes me think you're in fantasy land!
  11. If you start that at 2.58pm on a Saturday, you’ll still be there long after the cleaners have gone!
  12. Purely from this half fan getting a ticket for a game he is able to go to...... I’m happy in the Championship!
  13. Barnsley’s a good day out with a good mixed fans pub (Dove Inn I think) having good beer and excellent staff plus there’s a butty shop two doors down. Two season’s ago, the bar’s boss man let us eat them in his place as long as we were supping his beer. Top bloke!
