If we all stopped working the country would indeed be fucked. That tells us workers are absolutely essential to society. Let's treat them well and pay them accordingly.

Colleague and I are taking a van back to the industrial estate yesterday, and he stops, shouts out to a boy, asks how things are going. Boy literally parrots the train drivers' strike demands, just got a 7.5% wage increase, works 35hrs a week, makes 50K+ takes OT whenever he needs a bit more for shit They did an apprentice mechanics course together when they were 18, 20 yrs ago.

Would love to say I was shocked that Tel buys the old Tory propaganda about how strikers are bad.

Terrys attitude is what 40 years of right wing press demonising ordinary people gets you.

Hope the army are next, let’s see the flag shaggers heads explode when it’s their favourite boys wanting better for themselves.

I always think it’s mad that type of working class person who absolutely hates the tories, hates thatcher, hates Johnson, will NEVER vote tory etc etc but will unknowingly parrot their exact lines they’re hitting out with on the news etc Laugh

Terry might be unapologetically a Tory at this point tbf but there’s loads of people like that above Laugh

Why's Terry going on about strikes? Thought you needed to have a job before you went on strike?

So after what’s just happened not long ago with the primary school shooting in Texas and the gun control debate in full swing again, the Supreme Court have decided it’s a good time to make it easier to overturn a state law and make it easier to carry a gun in New York Crowe

Going to be a long, hot summer. First the trains, then it'll be nurses, teachers, and strikes will spread. Im generally in favour tbh, the government are a shit show, the big wigs at corporate are disgusting with the profits. Folk have had enough and are angry.

Not living, just existing at the moment. With Covid, now the cost of living squeeze, its fucking tight out there. Its a fucking shite time to be alive

Housing market crash incoming too btw very soon. Need it, as prices are outrageous

If the housing market did crash does that send interest rates for borrowing through the roof? vladchin


I was reading something that said a housing crash isn’t always good for prospective buyers as the lending part becomes extortionate and harder to get approval.

People across UK and internationally will always want to move to Edinburgh though and we aren't building fast enough to meet demand.

Edinburgh property prices stay fairly stable while new builds off the M97374 in Auchenteuchter absolutely collapse.  Piggy
