    Bye bye Treason May?

    well no one on Dosbods is going to do that, I was talking about the govt. certainly better than starting a war as was suggested earlier. Political assassinations are not uncommon by govts, certainly the French and US do it as do the Russians.

    Just take out a hit on Junckers and Barnier... something big and obvious like a huge fucking car bomb right in the center of Brussels.

    The drugs thing is pure project fear but the snowflakes lap it up and everything else the So-Called BBC excretes from its news orifice like god almighty has delivered it on tablets of stone. France is currently facing drugs shortages, you have trouble getting stuff like Parkinson's treatments, the reason? The NHS is outbidding the French and snaffling the supplies, most of which come from the US.

    Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?

    I haven't seen a reversal just a less fast increase. Sounds like the deficit

    Islamification of Europe

    Shit in a park in a Muslim country and the local police would probably give you a good beating

    Worst negotiation since Karl Donitz in 1945 apparently.

    Everyone on her team depends on her largesse, so they will all be arse lickers. The "caucescu" moment always comes as a complete shock to these people. French journalists (who don't have a dog in the fight) say she can hang on, for now. They don't have the 48 letters for the leadership contest.

    aka the Messiah syndrome, which B.liar suffered from... and Hitler. The more they are against you, the more you think that you, and only you, are right.

    Socialize the losses, it's what the banking classes have been doing for centuries. The logic of war is that if the belligerent can fight, they will, that leaders will not surrender until surrender becomes academic.

    'Worrying' lack of diversity in Britain's tech sector

    exactly that. Quantel were right to reject me, I would have been a poor fit with a load of Oxbridge ponces doing their C++ shit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantel

    Yoga Pants

    There's a ladies running group at work, they all look very scruffy around the office in tatty cheap old clothes they wear but seem to spend a lot more on their sports gear. They have a strava group where they come back and post images of each other, I met them as I came back into work yesterday lunch time, they asked where I'd been "running" I said. "Oh you should come with us sometime". But I'm with you Roger, if my heart didn't give out trying to keep up the yoga pants would do it.

    I was rejected for Quantel (is that the name? did effects stuff for TV) because I wasn't Oxbridge. They could have just said I wasn't good enough, which was probably true.

    Where I work nearly all the bosses below director level (of our sub division) are women, none of the blokes want the jobs ! We have women directors too but there is a layer of middle management of old blokes for historical reasons. However this is a French company.

    Macron is the President. May is really floundering now, she's not a great performer in the commons. Looks like the penny has dropped and very few people will vote for this deal.

    Yes you are quite right, lots of women prepared to do very hard subjects like Medicine but far fewer in IT probably because it doesn't have a particularly high status. Why slog your guts out to be just another grunt at the silicon face. The Guardian addresses some of what I said by stating they are not talking about developer roles but board level and senior management roles but what do they expect? People to just be parachuted into those jobs? It is true that they are rarely developers in those roles either except CTO but a tech company will have a tech flavour, people who've been in the industry a long time.
