Bearing in mind, you're pretty much away for a week at a time the pay ain't great.

The children's jobs have largely gone now, and our food tastes have changed massively as a nation. Meaning we import much more. Not to say I disagree, almost everyone I know had a series of crap jobs as a child, and likely into their 20's those that don't have opportunity simply turn to petty crime, booze and drugs these days. The bigger issue is on the estates it's rarer to work, than not. Father's are largely absent, and often have their own issues. As a nation we need to solve the people issue first and remind most that not everyone makes it to the top. It's one of the downsides of aspiration as a political entity. Those who have achieved it say it's a good thing, because it worked for them, but it doesn't for most.

I loved Gove's little gurning face. Bit strange for a mid 50s bloke to be in youngsters clubs at his age but fair play to him. Shame the country wasn't so friendly to Abbot when she had a mojito on the tube.

P.s. I cleaned exmouth comp as a part time job when I was sixteen. Upper site and hall 4! £3 an hour (£6 a day). Was a king's ransom in the early 90s.
Ha, and I cleaned Exmouth Sports Center when I was 16. We probably crossed paths many times, lol.

I too did a Gove a little while back. Had a bloody great time! Kudos to him; cutting loose a bit having been newly divorced.

Exeter University amongst a few others been found guilty of laying on special flights to bus in new Chinese students. Even now, after all that's happened.

Shameful.

Metropolitan Lefties beginning to cotton on to the benefits of labour shortages?

I have to take it that (as usual) you read only the bits that suited you own views and NOT the whole article? 🙄

If any of them are useful CM players I'd reserve judgement.

PS: Incidentally, curious how you "bus in" people with a plane? Does the public service vehicle go into the cargo bay for the flight of is it suspended "MASH style" from hawsers below the underbelly as "additional landing gear?

I read the lot actually G2K, especially the bit where it said migrant labour especially impacts those at the bottom of the wage scale and not so toward the top. Which probably explains why so many middle class city based so called progressives are unable to see the positives of Brexit. 🤷‍♂️

Cameron gave these people an opportunity to give him and Osborne a well deserved kicking, they took it.
Don’t think so, it was never an anti-Cameron vote, he who’d gallantly tried to reform the perceived problem. ‘These people’ then took the opportunity to keep the party of austerity in power with an 80 seat majority, albeit with a different jockey.

You forget ‘I’ll honour your Brexit vote’ Corbyn wiping out Cameron’s hard won 2015 majority in the 2017 GE.
BJ’s current 80 seat is a lasting tribute to Corbyn reneging on his Brexit pledge.

Well, our Jason's former pin up Ms Mordaunt hasn't been featuring much in the Tory tabloids lately so that in this (at least) you could be on to something.

In the meantime, your smug referencing to your previously linked article did, I note, carefully sidestep the many accompanying "nuances" in the prior paragraphs.

Oh, and incidentally (as you are obviously an assiduous scrutineer of the "left wing press" did you also read Rawnsley's article about the apparently growing tension between your poor little "churchmouse" Boris and his millionaire neighbour in No 11 (and his Billionaire missus). At least they didn't need to go cap in hand to Mandy Milling for a handout.

Bozzer should be worried. After all with (soon) 2 of his sprogs to support Mrs J might already be considering inviting "Dishy" through the "party door" for a bit of child support.
