  1. Thatchers Children

    To save hi-jacking the Brexit thread I thought people might like to explain who they first voted for and why. Lets keep it to your personal reasons so no need to repeat to many grand and well covered anti Thatcher rants etc. I had left school in 1981 so my first vote was for Labour in 1983. If...

    Cheltenham 2017

    Thought with Cheltenham being 8 days away I'd start a thread. A lot of the top horses out this year Annie Power, Thistlecrack, Faugheen, Min out and Valtour died. All would have been favourites. Makes for a more open festival though and I can only really see dead certs in Douvan and Altior...

    Home Loan questions

    Been 8 years since I had any involvement in the UK mortgage industry and I know the whole industry has changed quite a bit since then, so wonder if anyone working in it (maybe as a broker) could answer my questions? We still own our home in Westcliff which is rented out, I figure about 50-60%...
  5. Headhunters

    Anyone moved role and had to deal with headhunters? Any tips/advice etc? I've worked in academia all my working life but giving a bit of thought about moving to a private firm. The industry is small but expanding and I'm in demand, and the headhunters who are routinely pestering me seem to...

    Soma Mine disaster

    200+ miners killed in a mile deep coal mining collapse in Turkey. For a town where mining is the job then the deaths and sorrow of the whole community must be overpowering. To be a mile under ground, trapped while the tunnel collapses and the oxygen runs out must be horrific. Cheaply mined coal...

  13. Social Care Proposals

Social care (excluding accommodation costs) will be capped at £75k per person and additional help will be provided for those with assets worth less than £123k. Any additional cost will be picked up by the taxpayer...

  15. Shale Gas/Fracking

    Finally the government has done something that might actually encourage growth. There is an abundance of shale gas in the North of England. It has the potential to dramtically reduce energy prices and also reduce carbon emissions since gas power generation emits a lot less carbon than coal. In...

    The Rail Network

    Now, this is something that's had me thinking for a while. I'd say it's pretty obvious that the current rail network isn't that great. Too expensive, too much overcrowding, lots of places isolated etc. So, what's the solution? In the early 60s Beeching was appointed to look at the financial...
