    Covid jab - is it compulsory?

    I admit I am biased about this. I have nursed people in ITU, and the majority are there though no fault of their own, you get the odd overdose, or one who I vividly remember, the drunk driving out a pub car park, but most people, like me become unexpectedly ill and need intensive support, and...

    Covid jab - is it compulsory?

    The other week we gave someone their second dose, it had taken him eight attempts for his first, and three for his second. When someone is really nervous they sweat, feel faint, that's before they have the vaccination, and we generally try to get them in and out as quickly as possible, but the...

    The family farm

    Not sure if this counts, we bought part of a split up family farm, it was sold to pay for old age. What was left was cobbled together buildings, the houses were basic, ours was made of asbestos, and and the saddest thing for me was the milking parlour, with the coat hook and light switch at the...

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    How do you make sure of that? We have been told for weeks there is enough fuel, so if you are a bus, haulage company, or even trying to get to work, you either keep to your timetable, or what you are suggesting, 'panic' buy. We have been a just in time economy for years, I ordered a stock of...

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    Who? The abattoir, the processor, the haulage company, in most jobs you only have to give a months notice, so when those pigs were planned perhaps there were enough staff. Even local councils are losing bin drivers to higher paid jobs. A lot of people went home because of covid, and dare I say...

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    That's depends how you look of at it . If the pigs are produced on contract, they have an end user to go to, you would think producing more would be a good thing, jobs a good'un because you already have a sale. So you produce a pig to supply that market, and then it can not be moved on because...

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    I was more interested in what she said. She was pinning him down, if you watch the full programme, what jobs were supposed to be unskilled. The audience was selected so the majority were pro Brexit, and I think not one voiced any support in BJ, or how they have excluded, 'unskilled' workers.

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    Question Time last night, MB really forced the point home. The audience who were weighted with Brexit voters have finally realised, BJ is a buffoon.

    If he gave a sensible answer, he would have to acknowledge there was a problem, while he is bumbling about bacon he is avoiding it. Journalists have to be tougher with him, which for some reason( I can not think why;)), they are not.

    Skills Shortage Will This Story Ever End?

    Where do they park their lorries, unless it's on a huge plot of land, and tarmac costs money, even most Travelodges would not have the space. and ground reinforcement? Then there is security, they often park in laybys with other lorries, with the back doors open, just so they will not get turned...

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    You could say this about the NHS. A lot of EU workers went home, the idea was we we going to recruit from the world market, which we were doing already, getting staff from India ,Africa, and a lot from the Philippines. Covid brought a lot of staff out of retirement, but someone who I met who...

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    So its not been on the 6 O'clock news. You may not like climate activists blocking roads around London, but it gets the problem discussed. Are there no old drovers roads though London that could be used? https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/news/tv/yorkshire-farms-amanda-owen-herds-21688646

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    I know not everyone does Twitter, I use for work, and to find sources of information, but if you have family who use it, get them to post and retweet things like this. There is nothing so far on the One O'clock News about farmers protesting at Conference.

    Tenants & electricity

    We have someone using a prepayment metre , and I can tell from how they use it that we would be chasing them for money.

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    This has been going on for weeks, but until the cracks were visible it was ignored, and Newsnight is not exactly primetime viewing, and Marr has been filtering out the bad stuff, and not actually confronting their lies for months. I find this offensive, from a BBC interview which I bet most...
