    You put that and then put "no offence if you are gay each to their own and all that" in the edit?

    Exactly - because the Tories think everything is valued by money they equate the two. Teachers, carpenters, nurses, painters, care workers, poets, charity workers, writers, all roles that not everyone can do but in some way or other are pretty vital to our society if not our direct economy. It ain't all about the buck.
    Oh, and to respond to the point that all the roles listed above are somehow economically inactive - try telling the hedge fund manager who has just had a heart attack or the lawyer who needs cutting out of his mangled wreck of a car crash that paramedics are economically inactive.

    Well she does come across as a deeply unpleasant individual not just in terms of her worldview and the cynical abuse of her position as International Development Secretary, but also given multiple reports of her poor treatment of her own staff and team. It's not just @Van der MoodHoover's pal I'm afraid! 
    As to her IQ, well it's been obvious for some time now that she's dumb as a sack of rocks, I'm afraid. Here's her farcical attempt to defend her stance on capital punishment, for example...
    Folk on this thread have had plenty to say about Diane Abbot's gaffes (understandably on occasions) but even Diane at her sleepiest would know that if you execute people they tend to end up dead. After all, despite Priti's assertions, death does remain the UK's number one killer.

    The point for me here is that there is only one way Wilder can win this fight but there are many ways Fury can. But Wilder only needs to get through once, cleanly, and Fury will have questions asked. That will happen, no way Fury can keep him out all night, but it's just a question of whether he takes that hit spark on the chin or its less than a clean shot. Fury has some logic in his 'up and at 'em' approach, Wilder wins by clubbing from distance and even the Ortiz II knockout shows he is most powerful when given distance to extend. If Fury can keep inside range and box clever he's got a chance, strangely he's most likely to get tagged keeping at distance.
    It's going to be a really tense affair, I have a horrible feeling Fury will spoil his way to a win and Wilder is always only one big swing away from sealing.

    And just to confirm on that point - the proposal released today has anyone earning less than £25.6k as unskilled.

    Nurse £24.2k
    Paramedic 24.2k
    Midwife £24.2k

    Absolutely - one that is built on one knee jerk reaction after another, bereft of a PM who can even be bothered to care to govern and one guided by back seat drivers like Cummings with what seems like an implicitt admission of zero care for all but their own.
    As a vocal objector to Brexit (that word we can't apparently speak of any more in case people might actually realise it isn't quite over ready) I do have to admit that immigration policy was one place where we had a chance to stamp some competitive advantage on our economy. Being able to judge EU and non-EU migrants under the same system potentially gives us a great chance to level the playing field and make the opportunity truly equal to all.
    But they've FUBAR'ed it in the first pass by making it about elitism, earned salary and qualifications rather than incremental value that the person can bring. A hospital cleaner from Ghana brings value to this country in that he / she is prepared to do the job for a salary that others would not, even the most leftie of economists would have to admit that. But by taking that, and the other endless jobs in hospitality, retail, facilities management, healthcare and other industries, away without a clue how they will be replaced and they've just shown they have not got one single clue what they are on about.
    As for all these immigrants, I thought they were coming here living off benefits? Now Priti says actually that it's the 'economically inactive' that will need to step up and do the jobs that these immigrants will no longer be allowed to undertake. Listen to that for a minute, because the message is crystal clear, they're sending the immigrants back and telling us to mop the floors and pick the fruit. This really should be the point at which anyone who voted for Brexit starts to realise you've been well and truly conned.

    It's certainly an interesting play by the govt. Essentially - the impoverished British underclass can do the crappy jobs and we'll import foreigners to do all the highly-skilled well-paid jobs.

    This is a good listen for those interested in why we persist with conspiracy theories (episode of Infinite Monkey Cage)

    As for the programme last night, the thing I thought was interesting was the line between those who think the whole thing is made up and others who somehow think it happened but has been exaggerated for the benefit of global Judaism. I actually do believe that one of the benefits of social media is it allows us all to see what a cess pit of opinions exist. These haven't been created because of social media, they have been given a voice of expression by it and - largely - what we hear is not very pleasant at all.

    He wasn't - he was a good player for us in a very average side. Don't get me wrong, he was worth his place but I wouldn't say he turned us around. Arthur did that by fixing it at both ends - McClaren (Ross, not Schteve) and Hindmarch at the back, Bobby and the painter at the front. We had a pretty impressive midfiled with the likes of Micklewhite and Gregory was a good part of that. But he wasn't Mackay, Stimac or Wright in terms of the step change he brought to the team.
