Hi again Pete75, Thanks for explaining the series of letters! As for Google? I prefer Googly, otherwise known in some circles as a Bosie, named after Bosenquet the cricketer. Yes related to the late ITV newsreader.
But knowing the nationalities of workers in the area is not racism. But in this instance it was the sign of a failed attempt at humour, rooted in Jerry built, which in itself is a corruption of the term "Jury Built or Rigged".
But go to any city in the country and you will find some very weird goings on in he building trade.
My late brother in law, who was a builder living in North Wales told me of much of it. He couldn't get work near home, but had to travel to either Liverpool or Manchester, the builders in those cities couldn't get work locally either, so there was a weird triangular routing each day. Not very green.
But some of these practises date well back, with builders from North Wales sailing to Liverpool to build houses, even brought their own bricks with them?
Quite what role the council building inspectors do is open to question? Staged building work signed off as correct without visiting the actual site is well known in the trade.
The foundations of the new RLUH have been found to be inadequate for the grosse weight of the hospital, so between blind eyes, shoddy workmanship and backhanders the whole process is a farce! Nothing racist intended, being of Irish decent I understand it well enough. I still recall signs in B & B's "No Dogs, Bl***s and Irish men"! Slur remain, just different groups named. MM
