Was that because of parental indifference or because they were going to work?
Parental indifference. Many cold be seen still in their onesie with coat over the top. They also formed the list of those who will never go to parents evening.

My youngest son & wife are teachers in a school in a sink estate in Inverness and they were astonished when they were down here (near Fareham, Hampshire) and we went to my eldest grand daughters school sports day. Huge parents turn out and it's the same for parents evenings, 90+% turnout. At their school they're lucky if they see 10% of parents. The impression is that lack of ambition and sloth are communicable diseases.

No it won't. Strikes will be illegal and strikers will be re-education in training camps in Kielder.
You forget there will be a period of designed and orchestrated "trouble" to enable the Central Committee to enact the laws to make strikes illegal.

You're showing your soft liberal side now. What's wrong with Cultybraggan
 
Bit of a lefty. Democratic lefty. Certain amout of State management of strategic assets, infrastructure and public service for me, rather than selling everything to foreign governments and dodgy offshore businesses. That sort of lefty.
you are probably too young to remember what British Rail and British Telecom were like under state control then. Both produced a very poor service for a very high price. The State has no place in running commercial enterprises as it does not understand the concept of profit or customer satisfaction.

The SNP will monopolise the place for its own re-education camps in the Scottish National Socialist Republic, where inmates will have to be ritually smeared with woad and chant “Freedom” under concrete statues of Mel Gibson lookalikes.
 
But just think of the weeping , wailing and shouting how unfair it all is by the lefty crowd .
They will take to the streets and protest that democracy is horrible because it didn't go their way, as in 2015

Then supporters of the 'progressive' party that embraces equality feel the need to deface monuments to such

The Churchill statue has also been defaced.

I have no words!!!!

More of Labour's promised kinder gentler politics

 
Looks like the four day week has already become an "aspiration" and the election isn't over yet

Nah.

I remember BR, frequent user late 80s onwards.


The ticket from Chester to London i remember was £25 -£30 in 1988. Around a day's pay for Class 3 private. Trains were comparable in reliability to today.

Trains were a bit grubby, St. Pancras and Euston were vile.

Now, same journey is minimum £90, unless you het one of the handful of restricted advance tickets. What does a class 3 pte. get now? Plus the price varies with time of journey, although the train crew, diesel, etc don't vary price similarly.

Admittedly, the journey is a much nicer experience, mostly, and St. Pancras is a genuine delight to visit, a real triumph of sympathetic, high quality redevelopment. Euston is still shit.


What sticks in my throat is that huge chunks of money are going to overseas companies/State rail operators who have the franchises.
 
@javaguzzisti has it slightly wrong: it was Magic Grandad's fuckpiece who said that in a 1984 interview with Labour and Ireland, a pro-republican journal: "Ireland is our struggle — every defeat of the British state is a victory for all of us. A defeat in Northern Ireland would be a defeat indeed"

Corbyn is on tape refusing point blank to criticise the IRA, despite being asked seven times in succession (he then hangs up the phone).
ah, bit like the whole apologising thing then?
But you know facts what do they prove?
Thanks for that.
Always happy to be corrected.
But I still hold that a man who welcomes the defeat of the British State is unfit to be PM.

so xenophobia rules ok! You admit that they have made improvements but because it is run by non Brits then it must be baad. The answer is to setup your own UK based franchise.

Laura Pillock obviously thinks that John McDonnell is a third party!


“I can tell you today that the next Labour government will put in place the changes needed to reduce average full-time hours to 32 a week within the next decade,” the Shadow Chancellor told conference. “A shorter working week with no loss of pay.”
 
Let me get this right, early starts for breakfast, late opening in the evening and extra hours during the summer, yeah? All that on a 4 day week?
and three shredded wheats for all teachers and school staff

Your quote contains the important elements that were already known, and from day one haven’t meant Labour have promised a four day week for even one single British worker.

From the very first time they mentioned a four day week they said it was an aspiration they wanted to work towards within ten years.

The lie they have made is saying they promise a four day week, and then not correcting those who mistakenly assumed that meant something they would do in the next parliament if elected

I’ve been really enjoying listening to Labours claims during the run up to the election. For me it’s interesting to see how they are going to very long lengths to make what they say sound like they are making a point while actually saying something completely different.

I can’t help but think that while some statements are there just to cover accidental lies or mistakes, there is also a concerted effort to be able to mitigate the effect of being quoted in the coming years when their pledges don’t come to fruition, or can’t be done.

TAKE TIME TO CHECK OUT THESE PHONE CALLS :)

If you can find the time have a listen on catchup to the Mike Graham show that was aired from 10am this morning on Talk Radio (06/12/19).

From 11am there was a very interesting and non fluffy interview about climate change with Corbyn...........Piers Corbyn, the sensible one.

The show then continued, and at sometime after 11.20 a woman called in to talk about planes sewing chemtrails!!!

She seems a bit delusional, but did say she had received an email from Liz Truss saying that the government DO USE chem trails to change the weather.
She added that the chem trail planes come from a small airport in Essex.

So there you go, two interviews for the price of one!
one eminently sensible, and one 100% moon howling.
