some good points Perhaps it is simplistic, but that is how the government is selling the point to Joe Public: “Teachers are getting great pensions, you are not (because fellow politicians allowed private sector employers to cut yours long ago); this is funded with your tax pound; deficit reduction ...

In 2007, following a review from the National Audit Commission, Teachers Pension Scheme was changed to make it self funding. That is, separate from local authority and other public sector pension schemes, retired teachers funded by current teachers. Thus neutral in cost to taxpayer, so increase in T...

Me. In the meantime Banquet have sent me two orders, proving it's not bloody difficult :)

I work for a local authority and my employers are, quite frankly, a bunch of c*nts. I gave up the private sector 2.5 years back to try and do something a bit more meaningful, try and give something back to society etc. Clear mistake. I feel like I should wear my trousers back to front so they can sn...

I feel, and have felt for months, totally and utterly balls with nobody to turn to. Chin up, and keep looking. Its a feeling that doesn't last forever, but like mx I do feel like you have to go out and make things happen even if its something really small. From small things, big things can appear. ...

I feel, and have felt for months, totally and utterly balls with nobody to turn to. It comes and goes for me. Usually find that it's when I stop taking control of my life. I try to remind myself that only I can truly make me happy, so in low periods try to tackle the causes of whatever is getting m...

Teenage pregnancy, I admit, is a huge problem that we do have to tackle. But I ask you, if we take away the benefits, will girls stop having babies? Nope. No way.

Our huge taxes aren't servicing our social responsibility, they are servicing a monstrous beaurocratic machine that feeds a bloated public services sector and welfare state. It's not my fucking responsibility to house and feed those who get themselves knocked up ...
