Re: Public Sector Pension Reform

Mawsley you are being just a tiny bit unkind to the old boy. If I may explain. For some years I was the Chair of the Board of Governors for a school and for some years after that a governor at other schools. During that time I learnt how to handle the local govt people at County Hall, I know what b...

Or perhaps this is some evidence to suggest your prevailing wind hypothesis is flawed?

According to Snopes it's not. It was an issue a few years ago. According to the Kryptonite website they recalled 400000. Guess they've solved it now. Not good for the reputation, though.

In addition, fatalities to members of the public or people not at work are reportable, as are injuries to t...

Re: Cyclist Kills Motorist

So would most people wouldn't they? That's the thing about road rage; it's not rational. My point was that the report was not unreasonable in referring to him as a cyclist rather than a tesco shopper. Might as well refer to motorised road ragers as computer users, too.
