    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. H.L.Mencken

  1. Judges have all the time in the world, and they tend to use it.
  2. Which is exactly why these cases take so long to go through the courts. If you change the law the lawyers will take even longer arguing against it. Perhaps the government should employ better lawyers?
  3. I can imagine the lawyers could clog up the courts for months, if not years, arguing against any such measures Obs. Courts have a tendency not to rush to judgement on anything.
  4. A sensible suggestion Gary. However something I don't understand is that the NHS has a huge number of managers (many of whom have no doubt been sat at home on full pay for the last 12 months), so why aren't they managing the salary structure in the organisation? I'm sure that the doctors and nurses dealing with the ICU and other "front line" positions have been working their socks off dealing with the pandemic, but what about the large numbers who haven't been working at all because non-covid related illness is being, seemingly, put on the back burner for now? Perhaps it's too convenient to us
  5. Cases may be rising but the number of deaths is plumeting.
  6. Easier said than done. The HR lawyers are making a nice living out of these kind of cases and any attempt to curtail their activities are likely to prolong the process rather than streamline it. Unless you make it illegal to be a lawyer and lock them all up 🤣.
  7. If the 1% pay offer is an insult, the government should withdraw the offer and apologise for being so insensitive 🙄.
  8. The politicians don't want a pay rise, but they are forced to take one by the "independent" body that sets their salaries. Such a shame, but what is one to do?
  9. The NHS is still advertising for diversity support officers on £50,000+. If there's so much money available in the organisation why don't they stop creating non-jobs and use it to pay the actual workers?
  10. I totally agree Bill. If a 10% increase was proposed we would still have the usual suspects criticising the "Scrooge Tories" along with accusations of them trying to sell the NHS to the highest bidder (are Creepy Joe and Hyena Harris interested in a second hand health system I wonder?)
  11. Speaking as someone who has never had fast food delivered, and don't intend to in the future, it wouldn't bother me if it was made twice as expensive or even banned 😴.
  12. Is there anywhere that shows the number of vaccinations that have been given in Warrington?
  13. It's probably caused by Covid 19 Bill. Well that's the most commonly used excuse these days 😉.
  14. You are definitely a "my glass is empty" type Obs 🙄 I could understand your complaints if you hadn't been informed by anybody that you can have the vaccine, but that isn't the case.
