I could cry. At this rate it will be cheaper to buy and burn Rembrandts to turn into fuel.

Is this the 'new normal'?

Johnson today on Rwanda policy
at 08:39 24 Jun 2022

'A lot of prejudices about Rwanda need to be blown away... A creative attempt to solve a problem that affects countries around the world... to address something that is frankly evil... people taking people across the channel in unseaworthy vessels, and we've come up with a plan to fix it'.

The amount of contradictions and hypocrisy in this one statement is staggering.

Is this one of the benefits of Brexit?

The absolute state of the UK. You could cry.

at 14:30 22 Jun 2022

Is this current so-called government the most incompetent and corrupt (not to mention generally bigoted and xenophobic) in British history?

Relatively speaking, exactly how bad are they?

Genuinely interested in knowing if we are in 'peak' times, or if there was ever worse.
How would you get to London Stadium next Saturday?
at 14:16 18 Jun 2022

Going to see RHCP with my pal, and we are struggling to work out travel logistics due to the tube strikes. Is the 'best' option to brace for the traffic and drive into Stratford? But then will there be parking available anywhere?

Sensible shouts only please!
Remote/online work advice
at 12:44 5 Jun 2022

I would greatly appreciate some serious and useful advice please.

I am considering the possibility of finding a remotely-based job, as a means to create a better work-life balance.

Having never done this type of work, I've no idea what is out there or where to begin looking (beyond Googling 'online jobs').

I don't necessarily mind what the work is, as like I say it would be a means to facilitating an overall different lifestyle.

However, ideally I would like to be able to make use of the fact that I have a degree (in Physiotherapy, but I'd be more than happy to use the fact as a means to something completely unrelated), if there are any online jobs for which it is a requirement.

Online English teaching is probably one suggestion I will receive, but of course I want to find something consistent, reliable and secure.

I don't yet have enough experience in physiotherapy to do something like online disability claims assessment, for example.

If anyone could offer me advice I would be most grateful.

Fascinating listen on the Ukraine situation
at 17:23 20 May 2022

Putin to come out of the Kremlin in a box in the next couple of years?

at 13:26 1 May 2022

Worth a look for a few days? Considering it over the next long Bank Holiday weekend.

Any specific tips and recommendations?
The reality of moving to the EU for work post-Brexit
at 19:10 14 Apr 2022

Aware me please. If one were to randomly travel around Europe for 90 days (more specifically, France), making contacts, seeking out English-speaking firms etc, what are the chances of being able to find long-term employment which would qualify for a work/permanent/whatever visa?

As far as I'm aware a company would have to justify paying for your visa; what if you were willing to pay yourself?

I'm reasonably well-educated (degree in Physiotherapy), and I also still might take a TEFL course.

I'm frankly tired and embarrassed now of living on this small little island and would like to roll the dice before I'm too old.

I could use my qualification and work experience eventually to look at places like Canada/NZ, if I stick it out for longer.

But does anyone know what's up re Europe?
End-game to the Russia situation
at 15:40 27 Feb 2022

How real is the chance of this ending in complete nuclear armageddon? Or will the West/NATO/Putin himself/Putin's Generals prevent it from going that far? *

Just wondering as I'm trying to make some plans for the future and would like to have all the relevant information.

* Serious questions; not being at all flippant.

My PCR result came back this morning
at 16:41 22 Dec 2021

and it's positive (no surprises there). I'm 48 hours into symptoms now, and it's still like a moderate cold. Questions to anyone else who has had it lately: Were your symptoms similar? Did they get worse? How long did they last?

Or does that all just depend largely on what version you get?
at 14:50 20 Dec 2021

Just tested positive on a LFT after feeling cold-like since yesterday. That's my Christmas getaway off. I knew I shouldn't have gone to PR on Saturday; I bet that's where I've caught it.

Following my recent struggles in the past few months, which I've posted about on here, I'm feeling really f**king fed up with life.

And probably more restrictions to come for us to 'look forward to'.

Someone end me please.
Just got tricked by a scam text - Urgent advice please
at 20:13 12 Dec 2021

I received the following text earlier:

PostOffice: Sorry we missed you today at 14:26 PM on 12/12. Please schedule a re-delivery for your parcel via: [link removed].

Despite not having ordered anything, it looked completely legit and I put in my card details, DOB, and name to pay a 're-delivery' fee. I'm not sure what I was thinking; perhaps that someone had sent me something, and that my phone number was in the delivery info somewhere.

I've since Googled this and have seen that it is indeed a scam.

I've transferred all the funds that were in this account into another account, so there's £0 in there if anyone gains access.

Is this enough to ensure I am 'safe' or is there anything else I can/should do?

I've tried calling the Halifax for their advice but they said I'll be waiting an hour or more (hence why I am posting about about on here in the meantime).

I feel very dumb, or like a 90-year old who fell for it a good'un.

Tallinn recommendations

I'll be there for a few days over Christmas. Can anyone recommend anything specific to do/visit*/eat etc?

* apart from the obvious Christmas Market.

Thanks in advance.
Is Warsaw a decent place for a break?
at 10:45 27 Oct 2021

I'm in desperate need of a few days away, somewhere cheap. Looking at Warsaw, as it looks nice and has a bit of Second World War history to it, which I'm interested in. I'd be going by myself, for a few days.

I've been to Krakow before, but would rather go somewhere new.

Can anyone recommend it?

The emotional impact of football.
at 17:43 23 Oct 2021

I posted on here a few weeks ago about my recent struggles with mental health, following the death of my Dad after a long illness, and then my relationship with my girlfriend breaking down.

The last few weeks in particular have been really dark and really difficult. My head has been a horrible place to be at times.

I was in tears this morning yet again, and my brother bought me a ticket to go with him to the match today (my first time at PR for over 3 years). I used to go regularly with my Dad/brother but had lost interest in recent years (no surprise).

Anyway, what I wanted to say was when Celina's goal went in it was the first time I had felt 'alive' and a genuine flood of positive emotions in the last couple of months, to the point where it made me well up a bit, just remembering that it is possible to feel good again.

Have a good evening all.
