    New routes from Teesside Airport

    Because the airport is basically the Mayor's main campaign item (the other two things that stick in my mind, a second Tees crossing and redeveloping the steelworks site are very short on shovels impacting ground) and he is therefore willing to spend taxpayer money to ensure it appears successful...

    Interesting, thank you!

    Brexit matters

    I'd be more suspicious of easing the requirements around rest breaks. You have a legal entitlement to a twenty minute break at work if you work for more than six hours and it has to be somewhere in the middle of the day not at the beginning or end and include being allowed to spend it away from...

    Vaccine Progress, Approval, and Deployment

    Like I said it was an impression. Not living in Wales I've not been paying close attention! So I'm open to correction/new information :)

    Vaccine Progress, Approval, and Deployment

    Perhaps I've missed something but I was under the impression that Wales had decided to stick to the original protocol for the vaccine so is having to manage their supply with a view to doing second injections in as larger a number as first injections. Unlike England where it's jab baby jab and...

    Vaccine Progress, Approval, and Deployment

    It only took maybe half a dozen or so proclamations of unbridled joy to be very rapidly shown to be completely idiotic for Downing Street to learn that you should always under promise and over deliver? Well, colour me surprised.

    Adulting GCSE: Things that should be mandatory to learn in school

    I think the big ones for me would be a general "Financial Capability" education which would cover several of things talked about above such as how to understand your payslip and deductions from it, how to budget, what types of current account exist, what insurance products you may need at...

    Things that used to be common place in people’s homes

    Hmm fair point I can't recall if my fellows who did Dual Award rather than Triple Award also learned how to do it. And as for mandatory Adulting GCSE there's all sorts of things that should be in an award like that!

    Things that used to be common place in people’s homes

    I was taught (officially, my dad had taught me years previously) how to wire a plug as part of my GCSE Physics in 2005/2006!

    Mornington Crescent

    I've checked the rules and consulted the play by play replay in the Forum software and can confirm that Ruislip Gardens is offside so the move is disallowed and @SteveM70 is given a yellow daffodil and is in Nidd. Last valid move was therefore Hatton Cross Sailing close to the wind with this...

    Mornington Crescent

    Err, you've not really got much evidence of that. Actually sounds like a bit of a self-report to me...

    Mornington Crescent

    Sorry but Crossrail is wild and I think you're now in Nidd! So that takes us back to Benthnal Green as the last valid move.

    Cricket

    Thing that I still find unforgivable about that was that they corrupted a younger player as part of their wheeze. I don't want to infantilise Bancroft (he was 26 at the time!) but I can well imagine that if you're at the start of your international career and your captain and vice-captain talk...
