Why Most Small Businesses In UK Prefer Immigrant Workers

"Can I buy a slice of quiche for take-away?" I asked
"No. I'm sorry, it's only for eat-in. We dont sell it for take-away." she replied
"Why is that?"
"We dont have take-away packages for it." 
"What if I buy a muffin, how'd you package it for take-away?" I enquired
"Oh! In a paper-bag." She seemed confused; probably asking what muffin has to do with quiche... or thought I have changed my mind.
"So why not use the same paper-bag for the quiche then. I assume it'd work." I concluded.

The above was a conversation between me and a young lady in a cafe in Salisbury, Wiltshire, during the weekend. She is about 19 - 21 years old, very cheerful in a sheepish way and visibly lacking the so-called common sense. After I had convinced her to package the quiche in a paper-bag - made for muffins as she assumed - we ended up

UK Labour Party Still Confused With Itself

No comments: Links to this post
The problem with the Labour party is that is has no coherent message or voice on responding to the accusation laid against it in the past 7 years. Blame the Tories as you wish, yet if you're accused o alledged to have done something, it is left for you to clear your reputaion. Labour has failed in this singular hurdle and continue to fail (see this predictions in links below). It may take a generation for her and this new crop of its Leadership contenders are not going to change that. If anything, these lot would drag-on the taint until a new radical actual and real change. The electorates are not foolish.

Women Politicians As Doorstops

No comments: Links to this post

Since the General election  week ago, the political parties landscape has changed somewhat in 'XX'. After three party leaders hurriedly resigned including Labour Party's Ed Miliband (whom I didnt vote for as leader and always predicted he wont make it), Liberal Democrats' Nick Clegg (whom I always predicted will lose - although he managed to keep his seat: shame) and of course, UKIP's the ebulient, defensive, myopic Nigel Farage (who I wrongly predicted will go and as such the downward spiral of UKIP).

But then, as these 'fine', indispensible men vacate, the parties do what seem best; appoint women to hold the fort:
Harriet Herman (Interim) - she appears to be the traditional doorstop for Labour in this century;
Sal Brinton (Acting) for Liberal Democrats and guess what,
Suzzaame Evans (Tipped) to replace Nigel Farage in UKIP, only that even an unborn child knows that it seems only death can remove Mr Farage.

So for any period of rest, when the guys are all out enjoying their pints in the sunshine, women does what they believe them to be for: 'look after the house'. Sorry, not what I believe but what I make out of the tradition of 'Interim' leader system that women always fill.

It feels equivalent to Zero Hour jobs which gives these women no contract or actual authority let alone assurance to take steps.

It almost certainly is the case that they will finish their beers and return to take the jobs back with full authority attached of course. No, I am not predicting it because Nigel Farage is already back on the seat even before you noticed he ever tried to vacate it. Did he?

For Labour, we have the old guard from the failed Shadow Cabinet - the very team that their lackluster at the beginning of last Parliament was one of the reason I left the party and predicted they will not win - are thrutting out their 'declaration' to lead. Its no declaration; its simply what it should be! Dont ask me what. Think!

Anyway, as the doorstop-women are gradually removed and the birthright men take their places, men-in-suit series 5 will begin again.

But us (oh yes, I prefer to be in that camp) women has the pride that when the going is tough, we are always ready, skilled and able to keep it all together while them men sulk.
