    Frank Hovis reacted to Caravan Monster in Fuck me, the So-Called BBC are discussing atrocities against the working class. What’s the real agenda here?   
    Nice safe bit of virtue signalling about something that happened 200 years ago rather than tackle current issues The connection between the Peterloo Massacre and the foundation of the guardian put the incident on luvvie radar and they seem to have a thing about it.

    I used to "sponsor a child" through plan international - phillipines. Until my mates's filipino wife literally laughed at me saying did I honestly think any of that money wasn't getting pilfered!

    He's an old flabby cunt. Couldn't tell much about her. Who bloody cares anyway, if he hadn't said "black" this wouldn't be on the news. 
    Meh.

    You should go back to your first proper job.  Anyone chopping decades out of their employment history raises big suspicious.
    However if you don't think that all the detail is relevant put:
    2000 - 2010 Various temporary assignments including:
    And then note the ones of which you are most proud and say what you achieved.

    Frank Hovis got a reaction from Van Lady in Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness   
    I agree with that statement but as we have discussed re why so few women are heads of FTSE 100 companies it is that to get there and stay there you need to accept an insane work life balance and so many more men than women choose to "put themselves forward" for such roles because men in general prioritise work higher than do women.
    The reason is (no longer) direct or indirect discrimination it is personal choices for which there are systematic differences between the sexes.
    There is nothing inherently wrong with 99% (or whatever) of the FTSE 100 companies being men if there is nothing to stop a woman doing the job but they are choosing to take the career paths that don't take you there.

    Frank Hovis got a reaction from Kwyjibo in £250K to rent a unit in a shopping centre   
    This retail death spiral is great isn't it; could we be witnessing the end days of the "shopping as a leisure activity" nonsense that started in the 90s 
    Soon these huge malls can be bulldozed and replaced with parks and the councils can sit there brassic and reflect upon their part in closing down all the shops.

    How can someone not in a marriage get it annulled?
    I think this is actual genius.

    Frank Hovis got a reaction from One percent in Employment Advice   
    I've only had this once.  Ex Financial Controller applying for a job that entailed doing the post run between offices, banking the cash, and posting routine journals.
    I quizzed her very hard in the interview "You do know that this job means (as noted) above, are you going to be happy doing that?".
    She convinced me and got the job; stayed there five years although did get a couple of internal promotions.
    When she got to her top one, working in another area, I found out the real reason why she had had to apply for the junior job.  She was an absolute nightmare boss; people hated her. She had just wanted a job where she could get on with her colleagues and actually enjoy it; though couldn't say that in interview.

    Frank Hovis reacted to Bkkandrew in 2000 Hondurans   
    Many people get shot and killed illegally crossing between Thailand and Cambodia every year, as borders are taken seriously and enforced by the military.
    I would suggest that Mexico, The USA and other countries involved in this fiasco develop the same policies.

    Frank Hovis reacted to OurDayWillCome in Huddersfield grooming: Twenty guilty of campaign of rape and abuse   
    Funn3rly enough, that is exactly what he was doing, and it worked! This would not have been covered so heavily by the MSM if Tommy had not turned up at Leeds. What is even Funni3r is the idiotic decision to jail him for contempt - that increased the coverage of todays sentencing by 1,000% (FACT). It gets Funni3r and Funni3r every day! It’s almost as funny as your posts 😂

    Frank Hovis got a reaction from LC1 in Trump's progress   
    Um, hesitant as I am to criticise god emperor Trump I am surprised that he has called the Saudi version of Kashoggi's death "credible".
    "Well, he tripped and fell on the chainsaw I had been using to shred some documents. Twenty times. I know it may seem unlikely but that's how it happened."

    Frank Hovis reacted to Cunning Plan in Huddersfield grooming: Twenty guilty of campaign of rape and abuse   
    There are just over 2m Manchester united supporters in the UK.
    Which puts their number  higher than Muslim men of Pakistani origin.
    If 80% of child gang rapes were carried out by Man U fans, what do you think the reaction be? Would the authorities and women support them?
    What would be the reception of a bloke in a Man U shirt turning up to a child's play area be?
    Makes you think.

    Frank Hovis reacted to The Generation Game in New Moon on Monday   
    Don't know if the story has changed but there is nothing in that article about geostationary orbits. 
    50sq km of coverage. Save up to $173m per year. Let's say it replaces 12hr of lighting per day. That's about 4500hrs per year or $38k per hour.  
    First search result (2011) suggests Chinese electric costs $0.08 per kWh so that's 475,000 kW to light 50sq km. 
    9500kW to light a sq km. Assuming 100W bulbs, that's 95,000 bulbs. 
    No conclusion. Just a mental exercise to stop me developing dementia.

    It does seem very Blade Runner.
    What could you put on these moons?
    Cameras to track your citizens?
    Laser beams to shoot them?
    Advertising?
