Heathrow is bonkers compared with the 'average' airport.  I'm surprised there aren't considerably more accidents there.

[similarly other massive hub airports around the world]

Bunghole of an airport. Terminal 5 aside, it's in my top two airports I actively dread using.*

*Manchester on a friday currently holds pole position.

I never fly in or out of Heathrow now unless it is T5.  It's gone full on third world in the past 5 years.

I’ve got to fly to the States from there tomorrow.

And yes I’m another frequent flyer who avoids Heathrow like it was an Ebola hotspot. Which is always a possibility...

 Shittest airport I can think of, anywhere, offhand, and a total PITA to get to. Yes, T5 isn’t so bad, once you get there, but that’s BA only who now seem to be winning their race with Ryanair for the title of Europe’s Shittiest Airline.

      I wonder if they'd have done the same if they'd had Diane Abbot on.

      A remainer mate of mine told me in the pub the other day that two of his son's friends had been made redundant due to Brexit.  This was said in foreboding sort of way as if to say that's the start of the jobs holocaust is upon us.  I asked what these two people did.  The first was working in banking and they are relocating to Frankfurt and the second is a project manager for Jaguar Land Rover who are going to Slovakia.  Barely suppressing a smile I told him that surely he didn't expect me to feel any sympathy for bankers did he?  Anyway it turns out the banking guy was a contractor - well then he's not being made redundant at all, it's just that his contract hasn't been renewed.   That is well sort of what contracting is like, you get paid more to compensate you for short-term, insecure work.  So that was one of his anti-Brexit anecdotes demolished.
      The JLR guy - well I said that the 125 million Euro bung (plus other incentives) by the Slovakian government to get JLR to relocate might well have something to do with JLR's decision to locate a new factory there.  Regardless, this guy's job is going before Brexit and while the  UK is still in the EU and thus cannot in any way be related to Brexit.  Second anecdote dead in the water.
      Later on he did admit that he has started to see the EU in a more negative light.  I think we are winning him over to the dark side.  The problem is that his wife is Irish and public sector, is extremely left-wing and a rabid EU-fanatic to boot.  She feeds him all sorts of bullshit EU propaganda and he laps it up.  He needs to spend more time with me and the other Leavers down the pub and start to form his own opinions.
      A Leaver mate has asked me a couple of times now where I get my information from regarding the EU / Brexit.  Maybe I shall drop a few hints about DOSBODS and lure him in?

      Just seen an advert for Wren Kitchens on the box, camera sweeps across glistening worktops, shiny tres modern taps and oh so on trend doors.
      No price, yours from £95/month.
      We are entering the age of price obfuscation and the credit financialisation of everything.
