    £150 school uniform grant. Is this new?
    Now that the state has entirely nationalised bringing up children, can I suggest that some sort of government factory knocks up a work overall/smock, for everyone according to their needs?
    Then it won't get siphoned off into the coffers or the Walmart shareholders.
    If we are going to go full retard communist then let's do it properly.
    Or maybe I'm wrong. I tried to have this argument with some friends and family, but I'm literally Hitler and apparently these folk can't afford to have food AND clothes.

    Another house on my street for sale. Not as dear as the one nearest me. But still an arm and a leg. And if anyone does a drive by they'll have to mind the massive sink hole in the road just opposite it.

    Indeed.  Princess Di died while I was up a very tall mountain and 7/11 happened while I was undertaking a very deep dive.  What's going on?

    One plus of having lived and worked multiple places is that I can date most major events from 1985 on with pretty good accuracy - that happened when I was living / working at - and I can recall with whom I discussed them at the time.

    Was he the one who lost his leg while working in an Australian gold mine?
    Apparently, he was distraught after the accident and inconsolable.
    He kept on saying "Who's gonna need a one-legged gold digger?".
    Until someone shouted out "Paul McCartney?".

    The right to demolish probably relates to buildings contaminated with radioactivity but they didn't like scaring the population back then.

    Tell me about it. During the shortages of basic foodstuffs in the initial stages of the outbreak we couldn't get flour. During an expedition to CostCo we purchased a 16Kg bag of flour. 
    Thank goodness we stored it safely. I had no idea of the danger we had inadvertently created.

    Ah I remember now. My friend told me how to do the telegraph
    The document, published by the Department of Health and Social Care, advises councils that, under the Public Health (Control of Disease)  Act 1984, they can apply to a magistrate "to impose restrictions or requirements to close contaminated premises; close public spaces in the area of the local authority; detain a conveyance or movable structure; disinfect or decontaminate premises; or order that a building, conveyance or structure be destroyed".
     
    It's old legislation that I can't be bothered looking at as I'm in the middle of some work (Again, I know!)
    Among the range of powers set out in the Government's advice to councils is the ability to "close certain businesses and venues (for example shops, cafes, gyms, recreation centres, offices, labs, warehouses); close outdoor public areas (for example parks, playgrounds, beaches, esplanades, outdoor swimming pools) and order deep-cleans of buildings or vehicles linked to outbreaks".
    I think if we start seeing demolitions it'll be because companies are pushing the council to get full compo for completely non viable businesses.

    Flour (and custard powder) are well known explosion hazards. in particular, static electricity can build up in clouds of flour dust, and a spark can then ignite it. Precautions against this have to be taken when handling large quantities of flour.

    If you visit a working flour mill, you have to wear conducting boots, in case you collect static electricity.
