It is indeed about choices but also unrealistic expectations on the part of too many people. Plenty of private sector workers are taking below inflation rises and if they ask for too much there won’t be a job.

Plenty of small businesses employing folk that are struggling and even on the point of collapse.
Unrealistic or not, folks are free to move jobs as they see fit and the last time I looked wage rises in the private sector are running two/three times higher than the public sector. One of the few ways Governments can rein in public expenditure is to keep wages lower in the public sector, but let’s not kid ourselves that ‘choice’ doesn’t impact on industrial relations and the recruitment and retention of staff. You quite often bemoan that nothing works properly in this country anymore.
Ever thought this is why?

Go for the jugular on feckers like Lady Mone, strip them of their titles and all their assets ?
And put life-ruiner Noncefinder General in her place you mean?

Genuinely puzzled here Jigzy.
Who exactly is this "Noncefinder General" you have suddenly taken to referencing? You clearly have a more encyclopaedic insight to "noncery" than I have.
And why should he (or she) take Moan's place?

Oh, and in other "broken news" Tw@t Hanc0ck is the latest rat to decamp from the sinking Tory ship.

Good riddance.

Surely, were you wanting the Tories to be damaged further, you'd want him to stick around, like a bad smell.

It's a very old joke from the pages of the Daily Mail about Tom Watson. Stealing witticisms from the Mail is bad enough, stealing them from what I'm guessing was over a decade ago is cringeworthy in the extreme.

Not really. One more off the public payroll hopefully. There already more than a sufficiency of Tory turds hurtling themselves off Westminster bridge without yet another trying to add to the Thames Water open drain.

It would take many paragraphs to explain why things don't work and I am too busy with the Quiz at present to reply fully.

You do accept that Tom Watson is an odious piece of sh!te who deserves no place in our public life.
