    I agree with every word of that. In an attempt to save a few quid in the short term, it has cost us a fortune in the long term. The government should be subsidising cigarettes and encouraging people to drink as much as they…

    It clearly doesn't work at the moment, so something has to change. Throwing money we haven't got at it won't work either. The population is far to large and far to old. The NHS was never designed to cope with todays needs, and…

    That isn't true. A private company would be far more likely to reduce management. For a start, they wouldn't have a diversity manager, or a manager in charge of equal opportunities etc etc. I spent my life in management, and…

    It's the only way it can be unless there are unlimited resources. Everyone wants a better NHS, but few people are prepared to lower their standard of living and disposable income to have one. I have always upheld that the NHS is…

    I am a vegetarian, so hopefully my Christmas dinner will be more straight forward.

    Army personnel even wear Camos when working in the office. Very strange

    Unfortunately the TV channels are obsessed with crime drama, reality TV, soaps, and game shows. The only thing I tend to watch is comedy, as I want to be entertained. Whilst there is a shortage of quality comedy, in recent years there…

    Yep, driving a large lorry is a real skill, and it's one that should be respected by employers and other road users. In some cases drivers are given time slots, which is crazy because nobody can guess how the day is going to span out.…

    Not entirely true. Having passed an HGV test I can tell you that it is incredibly hard, and the pass rate is far lower than car tests. The main reason employers insist on experience is because of their insurance companies, but…

    This is true, and a situation that should never have arisen. There is also the unnecessary necessity of drivers having to take a CPC test and annual training. This is a cash cow invented by the EU that requires disposing of.

    After my career went tits upwards, I decided the only I was going to pay the mortgage is if I took a step down. In 2005 I spent £1200 and got myself a class 2 license. I was fortunate, I passed the test first time, which believe me, isn't easy. Yes, I…

    In my world people would be euthanized between the ages of 70 to 73. Just imagine how much money we would save, as well as freeing up hospital beds. It would also help the housing crisis, and the NHS would have an immense amount…

    You are wrong Old Boy. Thousands of people every day who had the vaccine are dying. Some people are left mentally scarred, whilst others are randomly having their legs drop off. I know all this because I read it on FaceBook ^^

    On the other hand, less than 1% of people who have died of Covid since the start of the year, have been fully vaccinated. Makes you think!

    Absolutely not. The best way for the virus to burn it's self out is to infect as many people as possible. If we are double jabbed and get the virus, it is unlikely we will get particularly ill. Being careful is the last thing we…

    On this we agree. We have a minority of snowflakes and lefty liberals that set our standards, then we insist the rest of the world has to abide by them.

    Bill Gates predicted the virus before it happened, and said it would die after about 5 years. That isn't to say he is right, but he got the first bit right though

    Yes, but to the expense of our tax payers. Once here they will refuse to accept our culture, live on our benefits, breed like rabbits, and then say "I hate this country". Don't stick your head in the sand old boy, we've seen it all…
