After driving through a hail of bullets I'd need detaining under the mental health act too, I expect. Anyway that's what whoever they are, are busy with now.

Some may think that, but I'm pretty sure that the printers that win the contract won't be seeing any cosmetics but plenty of ££££££££££££££££££££££££££ :-)

Indeed a boom for your economy that goes even further than that, Sirius :-) but regretfully, I lack the time to chat further at present.

I heard that too. And when I did, it brought on one of my more impressive "oh good one well-done-us" snorts.

It'll show them we mean business... I'm sure it will... ;)

So much for National Archives

Too convenient?

Thousands of government papers detailing some of the most controversial episodes in 20th-century British history have vanished after civil servants removed them from the country’s National Archives and then reported them as lost.

BBC editor quits over equal pay row

She asked for the four international editors to be paid equally.

"Instead the BBC offered me a big pay rise which remained far short of equality," she added.

"I believe I am very well paid already - especially as someone working for a publicly funded organisation.

"I simply want the BBC to abide by the law and value men and women equally."
That shows how wide the gap is.

I wonder who did the Nottingham station refurbishment? Even with an arson starter, it shouldn't have gone up like that. #TwinnedWithGrenfell ?

Taylor Woodrow. We often visit friends in the Radford area who pick us up from the station. The refurbishment was nicely done. However, 30min before the morning peak begins, it slowly starts to build up so CCTV should be able to pick up something.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-42671837:

Part of Nottingham railway station built at the start of the last century is listed but that section escaped the worst of the damage, for which Ms Derry is thankful.

"I can't praise their efforts enough really. The historic part, the listed part, is in really good condition. It is the newer part that opened in 2014 that has caught the brunt of the damage really," she said.
Why can't we build fire-safe public buildings in the 21st century?
