I've pulled it.

By all means please contribute and debate the topic but keep it civil and leave the personal remarks out of it.

I'll start a new thread tomorrow when they're back in parliament. I'm the meantime take a day away from it.

Kwacky.

PS. no references to the former brexit thread, otherwise I'll bring it back.

Seriously though, where the feck is everyone?

Has anyone heard from DeeGee?

Cavetroll was working on his music but he's had some bad news about his job.

I have a horrible feeling DeeGee may have lost his job over BREXIT.

Probably, like many others, wondering if any of us will still have a job come the Spring.

Work is dire.

I feel gutted for those who have already lost their jobs...,,it’s one of the worst feelings out there.

Whilst I fully sympathise with anyone who looses their job, I rather take exception to that description of it mate. :^
Having your health would seem far more important imho ?

I seriously believe that there are going to be a lot more changes in the labour market over the coming decades, and society will need to make some considerable changes to accommodate those changes.

A friend's son lives and works in Zurich for one of the UK accountancy firms.

The Swiss Government has offered him dual citizenship as they recognise what his skills bring to the Swiss economy and they don't want to lose him due to Brexit.

What a retarded inward thinking Nation Britain has become.

I did say 'one of the worst feelings'.

Yes health is the most important but losing your job can have a significant negative effect on your health and welfare.

It doesn't matter what any of us think about this, the public just need to stop taking out their rage with each other. If people care that much then they should be making their voices heard to those "making the decisions".

The situation is laughable, but there's no point finger-pointing or name calling - just get on with it.

No reason for anyone to be falling out in this forum that's for sure.

Getting there. The kitchen has been dismantled to fit it and i've rewired and replumbed a few things as well as a full repaint and move around. Oh and the log burner has been moved out to do it, so angle grinder was in operation yesterday. :D Oh and a new window :D

Big job but needed doing and finishes the house off beautifully.

Sorry Duke, so you did. You're right too, loosing that sense of purpose can be devastating.

As funny as it is watching Elsie slip and slide over the porcelain slabs I do feel a bit nervous when she's being playful on the wet slabs. Natural stone is a lot more grippy
