Farage...The next PM?

Also as I've mentioned on here before, along with others, there's a high number of nurses and Midwives who qualify and never ever practice.
WTF is the point of learning a specialist skill set only to bugger off and breed or man the tills or pick peanuts out of monkey poo or whatever...?!!

Also, they take up training places that could go to people who would then actually give something back by pursuing a career in the profession.

No idea. However it has to be noted that I'm a decade out of date. My wife qualified in Midwifery in 2010 when the degree course was free. Now it's £9k a year, so I suspect that the incentive to actually practice what you pay for might be higher now?

You'd also be surprised how many CV's and applications for vacancies I get from graduates who haven't done anything close to the degree course since graduating.
 
...but most agree that we are British & proud of that fact and NOT European, who we have had to fight for, against & in, twice in the last 100 years or so costing us £trillions & more importantly, millions of lost & damaged men, women & children. If any bill has to be paid for Brexit, it should be by the European countries who we helped defeat & liberate..
It must be nice in your rose-tinted world, where it was all "Britain liberating the Europeans" - except by your line of reasoning, the Russians should far more deserving of payment from Europe after paying an unbelievable price in blood in two World Wars - and we certainly shouldn't criticise them for invading Crimea and the Donbass, spreading Polonium-210 around London and nerve agents around Salisbury.

IMHO they could never find enough cash to do it, perhaps it is the constant reminder in many of these bullying Europeans which makes them so vindictive...
Mad oi larf. How, exactly, do you think that the UK ended up with an Empire on which the sun never set? A world map covered in red?

8) Of course. We never bullied anyone, there wasn't any conquering or exploitation, never any dissent or uprisings, and they were all happy to join the Empire and remain within it...* 8)

Places like Africa were a free-for-all for many European countries, but Britain was one of the first to ban the slave trade; it was decades later before some other European countries banned it.

That's because we're nice.
 
How's the TV career Gracs? Is Wicked Uncle Nigel still ignoring you?
He still hasn't got the bottle up to challenge me yet. How are you coping with his rejection? Plenty of fish etc....
