  2. And shes being attacked by Corbynistas. Remind me. Whos he nasty party ? Are???
  3. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-51195059 In a video message to supporters, the Birmingham Yardley MP argued the next leader had to be able to unite the whole Labour movement. She said she had to "be honest" with herself - "that person is not me." Well .. if she was totally honest, shed say it was none of the other candidates either and that voters should look for another party to vote for. You might want the sound on mute... And close your eyes.
  4. Ah but Haxby https://www.economist.com/britain/2020/01/09/the-coming-splurge-on-northern-infrastructure Jan 9th 2020 The wait for a train at Haxby in North Yorkshire has been a long one. The station closed in 1930. Over the past 20 years, as the town has grown and traffic has clogged up the roads around York, various schemes have been proposed to reopen it. One even got the go-ahead in 2009 only to be put on hold again a year later. But since the general election, there has been a growing belief that the train will finally arrive. .... Treasury insiders argue that the problem is not the economic analysis, but political decision-making. Transport projects related to London have a habit of getting approval ahead of others, even when the raw numbers suggest more value could be found outside of the capital. The most recent assessment of reopening Haxby station, for example, scored the benefit to cost ratio (bcr) at 3.0 and yet the scheme remains closed. By contrast, the extension of the Docklands Light rail to City Airport received a greenlight with a bcr of 1.7. A former Treasury official explains that ministers respond to pressure and that London-based businesses find it easiest to get heard. Chancellors are more likely to cross paths with a chief executive who wants a quicker journey from the airport to Canary Wharf than one troubled by congestion on the York ring-road. Its bent. Its a c\se of Southern rail being given huge priority Crossrail - a small extension from Rdg -> Eastend - required a load of voodoo bullshit to justify its cost.

  6. RLB is the Papist!
  7. So, Germany, an adjacent country with a booming economy does not attract as many as UK, which is ~1000 miles away. Any guesses? Rest of the EU barely register.
  8. https://ehmcn.eu/poland/ As the population count conducted in 2011 shows most Poles immigrated to other European Union countries (over 85%), of which more than 30% to the UK, more than 22% to Germany. The following destinations were popular among our citizens: Ireland (6.4%), the Netherlands (5.2%), Italy (4.6%). 73% of the people emigrated in search of a better work (possibility of higher wages), 31% due to a lot of difficulties in finding a job in Poland, and 3% in search of better career opportunities abroad. Within the group of people with the intention of taking up employment: 79% were men and 62% women. The second reason given were family matters, of which 49% indicated - family accompaniment. Only 6 % of Polish emigrants left the country for more than 3 months to pursue education at university level or to gain new professional skills. According to the age criterion the largest group consisted of immigrants between 25-29 years of age, and between 35-49 years of age. 73% of polish immigrants were economically active, nearly 25% were inactive, with a small percentage of unemployed people. People with vocational education - NVQ (81%), secondary vocational education (78%) and higher education (over 72%) had the easiest access to employment. In the group of inactive professionals people with primary education and no education were identified (only 1/3 of those people actually worked). It is likely that mainly this groups of people is affected by homelessness. According to the latest data, the largest group of immigrants in England and Wales are Hindu (694,000 in 2011.), followed closely by Poles (579,000 in 2011).
  9. Europeans caught up in Britain’s homelessness crisis https://www.ft.com/content/c59a288c-0451-11e9-99df-6183d3002ee1 oh ffs they are not homeless. As migration to the UK under EU rules has hit new levels over the decades, so too has the number of homeless people from continental Europe, who account for more than a third of all rough sleepers in London, according to a recent Crisis report. Overall, there are more than 3,000 nationals from other EU countries sleeping rough in the UK, the report says.
  10. https://www.crisis.org.uk/media/240421/the_homelessness_monitor_england_2019_es.pdf Having fallen back since 2015, total London rough sleeper numbers rose to a new high in Q4 2018, up 25 per cent over 12 months. This resulted largely from a renewed increase in rough sleepers of Polish and Romanian origin – up 69 per cent since Q4 2017. However, United Kingdom-origin rough sleepers were also 13 per cent more numerous in Q4 2018 than a year earlier and – like the all-nationality total – the highest on record. UK should not be having a 'all nationality' total at all. The number of non national homeless should be 0.
  11. Deaths must be going int othe a few 100 over the winters. In the main, these are alchis who've come over due to their being more bennies in the UK, with the promise of casual labour. Disaster as they dont have the wherewithall to sort out accomodation, so end up drinking Polish meths and dossing. More stats than you could shake a stick at https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsofhomelesspeopleinenglandandwales/2018 Apart from one ....
  12. Spanton-esuqe! I thought it was very very good. However, I did watch Dr Who with my nephews. I thougth that was beyond shit
  13. Well .... And most of the natives are more than capable of growing dope themselves. The low criminal status of grass means its not a an urgent crime thang. And the cheap LEDs means its economical to grow it without knacking the leccy.
  14. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-51176958 Ba is slight for 18. His body shrinks into a neat package as he recalls his experiences. We're sitting in a brightly lit kitchen, a Jack Russell dog darting between us under the table. Ba's foster mum fusses in the background, making lunch and occasionally interjecting to clarify or add some detail to his account of his journey here from Vietnam. She wants to make sure his story is understood. Funny that, dead on 18 .... All Vietnamese are all fucking slight. His story is one both extraordinary, and typical of the growing number of Vietnamese men and women recognised as being potential victims of trafficking in the UK. For several years, Vietnamese have been one of the top three nationalities featured in modern slavery cases referred to the National Crime Agency, with 702 cases in 2018. Vietnamese come here illegally, then smuggle more Vietnamese in and make them work. Kick the fuckers out.
  15. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-51136353 But Jo Grady, leader of the University and College Union, criticised how value for money was based on an "obsession with flimsy metrics" around graduate earnings. "What can future employment or earnings potential really tell us about teaching quality?" she said. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo_Grady Jo Grady (born 1984) is a British trade union leader and academic. Grady was born in Wakefield in 1984, while her father was part of the UK miners' strike. She studied at Wakefield College, then became the first member of her family to attend university, studying industrial relations at Lancaster University. In 2009, she began working as a lecturer at the University of Leicester.[1][2] Grady joined the University and College Union (UCU) in 2006, and became joint secretary of its University of Leicester branch in 2016. She then moved to work at the University of Sheffield, and became active in the UCU branch there, as its pensions officer. In 2018, she was elected to the union's national dispute committee for the Universities Superannuation Scheme, and she enthusiastically supported the union's strike that year over cuts to the scheme. In 2019 she was elected to the union's National Executive Committee.[1][3] The General Secretary of UCU, Sally Hunt, stood down in February 2019, and Grady ran in the resulting election. Her campaign was noted for its strong online presence, and prominent badges and posters. She defeated Jo McNeill and Matt Waddup, taking 64% of the vote in the final round of voting.[1][2][3]
