    Both were predicted to go although Tiverton was a special case - anger at the Tories plus the porn thing otherwise it probably would have been close....

    Quite. Normally we are talking about "hardship" for a few hundred pounds, the idea a typical family has to find several grand extra is doom. That's the entire discretionary budget for a typical family (no holidays, no gym, etc) and for those on minimum wage or benefits this forthcoming increase...

    I actually don't remember doing Dickens though we did at least one Shakespeare - we got a school cinema trip out of it to see that Romeo & Juliet film from the 90s.
    Novels I can remember studying were Lord of the Flies and Brave New World. I think Animal Farm too and maybe An Inspector Calls....

    Sounds like a bog standard boring database project commanding a lowish rate (but Outside) for fully remote working.
    Not your dream but hardly ROTD-worthy.
    Where are all the £80pd roles we used to laugh at?

    replied to Sharing a Route to Google Maps
    If you are using Google maps for directions and you click under "options" you can "Send to your phone" including by email, and you get a shortened URL.
    This is just a shorthand for the points you want to travel between. In fact, the URL when you are using Google Maps is the...

  • Not quite that long ago but certainly for today. There was a resurgence in 1-man teams the early days of mobile gaming but now you phone can run Crysis everyone expects modern phone games to be as polished as other platforms.

    Inflation aside, the energy price crisis is really quite scary. I saw on MSE they are now expecting a further 52% increase in autumn rather than 40% previously anticipated, and that this will last longer.

    If we get a bad winter (what are the odds) this will go beyond being just 'difficult'...

    replied to 30p to make a cooked meal - Tory Hypocrisy
    How do you propose a single mum of 4 finds the additional time to learn these skills? It's a (often losing) battle just to stay afloat and maintain the status quo. If you are fortunate to have been taught this stuff you are in a better position but you do not easily have the mental or economic resources...

    And that there is a lot of competition for the better areas. Pretty stressful, getting a CH.

    It's hard to find somewhere not in range for Tesco (or similar) delivery these days which is certainly a boon for those who previously relied on the extortionate village shop but you can buy much...

    Pensioners have a pretty rough deal (those relying on the state pension at least), they can't typically take a 2nd/higher paying job and are at particular risk from energy poverty. Looking after the elderly is a good thing.

    But one problem is simply inflating wages to match inflation further drives inflation. It's easy to say "don't raise wages" when you can afford to comfortably take a 10/20/30% effective income drop of course.

    Does the problem actually have a solution, even theoretically, when...

  • In my experience they are squeaky clean but it's a reasonable warning.

    FYI I can legitimately say our situation has changed and probably we should have done this previously (when my wife started working as initially we set this up based on my contracting income and her being unemployed)....
