& that's the 800 lb gorilla in the room.

Makes one wonder why the referendum was held in the 1st place as Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty is meaningless until the 1972 ECA is repealed.

Wow, whatever happened to professionalism? I bet many here worked with people that they did not like but got on with the job in hand.

Cabin Crew argue so much, they got removed from the aircraft

!975 was for the Social Chapter of the EEC which Britain joined in 1973 (without a referendum).

Maastricht & Lisbon turned the EEC into the EU. Many of the Eurozone nations held referendums for those treaties. Did Britain?

Why not just agree that everyone whoever they are deserved their medals :-)

I've never fussed over the Olympics as I prefer Rugby, Football & Cricket.

As in everything in life, there are winners & losers.

Well since the Maastricht & Lisbon Treaties were ratified by parliament with no referendum for the people, those very same people saw how the EU were handling the global financial crisis & made matters worse for those within the Eurozone.

So our politicians seeing the same thing, decided to give the people their say knowing full well (mistakenly as it seems) that they could continue in the same vein as the country wouldn't be foolish enough to say leave...

...oops! Now we can all sit back & watch those very same politicians bluff their way out of the biggest mess of their own creation!

Hmm, it sees that National & Local Government are no longer interested in taking care of the country but in creating large scale ATM's.

Schools in the hands of offshore firms

With £6 billion up for grabs, nice ATM :-(

A nice comment in this article :-)

A new model?

"David Skelton, of the conservative think tank Renewal, said he thought a more sophisticated and complex approach was needed now. He said: "1950s England should not be our model.""

It's all about money...

History of G4S

Most people associate Securicor with armoured vehicles attending to banks. They were much more than in that they had their Distribution Business & were great to work for.

That is until Nick Buckles joined & the bush telegraph went into overdrive, every driver knew that it would soon be bye bye as the rumours flew thick & fast. Many of us went to Securicor's Driver Agency, which again was great to work for, that is until they sold that to Randstadt.

Not quite Jan. Night Watchers, later to become Night Guards, then Securicor is British. Group 4 merged with Securicor in 2004 to form G4S.

Fair comments. However instead of taking a pop at the Yanks, take a pop at the OP, he's a crazy Irishman living in the UK who'll take a pop at anyone that deserves it.

As with other countries, Australia does deserve a pop at due to those images in the original post.

It seems every one commenting has missed the point!

Those that put that kid in the chair & restrained him - Following orders because they don't want to lose their job?

or That's their mindset anyway?

So that chair was manufactured in America, WAS it American prison officers who put him in it?
