    Even when it describes something that's not tight, but loose and the person lost because of it?

    This absolute Elson of the highest order.

    No wonder the Military is skint! Issuing AKUs to a bloody RLC Driver!

    AKUs are terrible anyway. I bought a pair 7 years ago and thought they were crap.

    The warehouse work is going to be more physically demanding, probably more hazardous etc they’ll be men and women working in there. Sat at a check out, scanning items is a more basic and less strenuous job, whether you’re a lad or a lass. It’s just a different job with different demands, why can’t people just accept that.

    If you want the same pay, go do that warehouse job rather than being on shop floor!

    Listened to that being discussed on the Jeremy Vine programme the other day. One female caller stated that for someone who was "offended" by the interviewer intruding into her private life, but chooses to put her private life on social media, then gets upset when her posts are questioned, gets exactly what she deserved.

    I'm pleased that she was interviewed by a reputable journalist rather than a sensationalist hack. She was asked clear questions and responded in a measured way, revealing her true intent. She expressed no remorse. She only wants to return to the UK because she has run out of options.

    Fortunately the UK government's line on this (so far) is that it has no plans to assist the woman to return to the UK.

    Exactly.

    Her father wants her back here (surprise, surprise) saying she made a mistake and didn’t know what she was doing... even though she clearly did know and admits it.

    Sincerely hope this remains the case. As TPA has said, it would look incredibly weak and make the country look like a laughing stock if she was allowed back in.

    Not at working today so I'm sitting here watching BBC news. What bugs me is how *text deleted* vague the newsreaders are with information. Just seems like laziness, like they can't be bothered to learn any of the basic facts about what they are reading. For example they've just been talking about the young lad who's in the news for sprinting, and I now know that he did it in 'errrr I dunno but under 14 seconds'. There was a piece on about anti aging brains in mice earlier which they didn't have a clue about either.

    I know it's live so they are bound to have a few slip ups but doesn't seem like anyone knows w t f is going on half the time.

    It’s all non-story news. The BBC breakfast show boils my p1s$.

    When you take your shoe off and your sock comes off inside it. I hate that.

    Much worse is when your sock comes off in your shoe while they're tied up and you're walking around!

    I personally would let her back, on condition that Cardiff City FC make the travel arrangements!
