I had a Irish mate (some years ago) he was getting good dole money in Eire and because where he (lived) had high unemployment he was told he didn't have to sign on. He told me this in a pub in Lewisham and he was living in Catford at the time.

Very generous of the Irish in saving the UK taxpayer.

Oh I forgot to mention his nickname was Dodger.

The government tried to prosecute these people during Covid and lost their case. There was no legal stipulation that they had to remain in Ireland. Living in say, Eastern Europe, you could have had a nice couple of years on the pandemic unemployment payment (350 a week). I don't even blame the people for doing it, I blame the government for another silly loophole.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Here is some wage inflation news. Personally thinking what are teachers and nurses going to think? Their payrise is supposedly one or two percent, yet all have worked much more than usual. A lot of resignations and future shortages is my prediction. Who would go into teaching/nursing or the police now? I wouldn't advise it. I think there have been five retirements out of thirty staff in my work last year. One went last week too. There are no replacements. One replacement came in and straight away went sick. Stressed I would think. If this is anyway mirrored in other places, we are all in for a shock.

Good news for those concerned with the cost of living the government has decided to freeze the TV licence for the next 2 years.

I am sure we will all welcome that.
