  2. According to the government website the minimum wage for anyone over 21 is £6.70. I saw an advert in 'Subway' the other day advertising for 'Sandwich Artists' must be over 21 with a starting salary of £5.31. So why aren't they fined?
  3. MPs who supported the bombing motion Conservatives: Adam Afriyie (Windsor) Alan Mak (Havant) Alberto Costa (South Leicestershire) Alec Shelbrooke (Elmet and Rothwell) Alex Chalk (Cheltenham) Alistair Burt (North East Bedfordshire) Alok Sharma (Reading West) Alun Cairns (Vale of Glamorgan) Amanda Milling (Cannock Chase) Amanda Solloway (Derby North) Amber Rudd (Hastings and Rye) Andrea Jenkyns (Morley and Outwood) Andrea Leadsom (South Northamptonshire) Andrew Bingham (High Peak) Andrew Bridgen (North West Leicestershire) Andrew Griffiths (Burton) Andrew Jones (Harrogate and Knaresborough) Andr

  6. Dizzy, they wouldn't. That's when they would need to be turned ON.
  7. I read that they are for the remote control of lights by an operator who can decide when lights may need to be switched on or off, during freak weather for instance. Also so that bust lamps can be pinpointed without people needing to report them.
  8. I'm surprised that a technician from PC World even knew what Windows 10 was.
  9. Not sure if 'God Save the Queen' would have any meaning to an atheist.

  11. I must say that the whole mood of this forum has changed for the better in a matter of days.
  12. You were fortunate to be signed on Sid, my next door neighbour tried to sign on as unemployed and was told he didn't qualify for job seekers so he couldnt sign on as they didn't have an unemployed register it was only a jobseekers register.
  13. Can you do any other whistle apart from a 'wolf' whistle Wolfie?

  16. Seems to follow a pattern. Well said Diz.
  17. The problem is that these people are made up of migrants and refugees. While everything possible should be done to help the refugees there comes a point where enough is enough and no amount of images of children being killed can make a difference.

  18. Tiddlywinks don't have a Premier League. Although they do have crowd trouble that's why they have Counter terrorist police at most matches.

  20. Don't you like pro celebrity tiddleywinks Sid? But the question is in the Sports section, if you're not sure that's the section for those interested in sport.
  21. It must be awkward for gay people when their Sat-Nav tells them to go straight..
