    Hmmm well that's a valid viewpoint I guess, but my first instinct would be to call security and get them bundled out the front door....

    If you are interviewing contractors for a role, and you turn up one morning and find a candidate unknown to you has barged his way past reception and is sitting at one of your empty desks, are you going to choose him for the role?...

    Brexit doesn't prevent the UK from inviting as many Eastern European workers into the UK as it needs. We (Brexit supporters) just like the idea of being in control of when they come here (to do work for us) and when they go home (when there isn't work)....

    So are they now 1000000's and 1000000000's? (millions and billions)....

    Recommend buying shares in unloved small UK-listed energy companies. i3 energy, Pantheon Resources, Southern Energy (not to be confused with SSE) are stocks I have a heavy exposure to. Their share prices are low due to investors keeping away over climate concerns. Rising energy prices are making them...

    Not necessarily, because the recipients of the larger payments for the energy will have more money to spend. Granted some of these are overseas....

    I think he would stand a better chance of avoiding the lawsuits if he refrained from using the corporate colours and logos.

    Is that a euphemism for something?...

    What do you think Starmer needs to do to destroy Boris that he isn't already doing?...

    replied to Best place you've ever been on holiday
    You say, defensively..

    But you're right, Thailand is great. I've spent several long holidays in Pattaya in Thailand. Great weather, good varied food, decent prices, warm seas, and friendly people. I swear I would go there for my hols even if the whole city wasn't one massive brothel...

    Indeed they were and are quite versatile.
    Last year, during lockdown, my brother identified that motorway service areas were the only places where you could legally have a sit-down meal indoors - so he visited quite a few for this purpose.

    replied to Candy store

    replied to Contractors taking time off
    I've had several breaks of 6 months+ and not found it significantly harder to get my next role. Mind you I'm trying to think of an occasion when I didn't have at least 3 months off at the end of each one.
    One's head will grumble, but once you get started, I've found, you're fresher and have got...

    replied to Lazy Older Men
    I'm 51 and have decided to semi-retire. Having saved and invested my war chest up to a level where income from dividends equals my living expenses, I don't need to work, and have chosen not to work for the past 6 months.

    But I'm conscious of the fact that my investments might go south,...
