    Minimum wage to rise to £8.91 from age of 23 instead of 25.

    I cannot support or defend this government but I am stuck with useless sods for another three years.

    Are you trying to depress me? It seems like we've had Johnson for more than four years already.

    Surely this thread is the best place to enter this for “most popular post” award... :)



    If the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, then lefties are the only ones in their right mind.

    I know nothing about the Avengers films, so the analogies mean little to me, but the comment about changing to Proportional Representation into the next Labour manifesto, to encourage votes from those who normally vote for the Green Party and others etc, could be worth a shot.

    Jonathan Pie speaking on behalf of a guy with disability.
    Be prepared to be disgusted at how the disabled are still being disadvantaged by the Tories.
    Oh yeah. He swears a bit.

    I have taken this passage from the Guardian report. The bold section offers more proof that the fiscal party really isn’t fiscally savvy.

    “In a vindictive political act of pure stupidity, the government just axed the Union Learning Fundprogramme which trained 200,000 people last year. For the small sum of £12m from the DfE, 40,000 union reps help those in the workplace with low skills to take basic courses in IT, maths and literacy. Since the Labour government launched it in 1998, 2.5 million people, union and non-union members alike, have been through the scheme. One simple side-effect was the fostering of more German-style good relations between unions and employers, as they worked together to upskill the workforce. Less intimidating, union reps are better at persuading staff into training. Exeter University research shows the ULF not only helped people to improve their jobs and pay, but also every £1 spent gained the economy £12.87. No reason was given for its abolition.”
