    UK Energy Crisis

    Well crisis may not be quite there yet but we’ve had a fire on one of our cross channel links that limits its capacity into next year. Wholesale prices are through the roof. 2 companies went bust on the same day this week, 4 have lined up to go bust next week according to the BBC. Reading that...

    RIP Sir Clive Sinclair

    For the stuff he churned out he was sometimes ridiculed but I imagine a fair few on here had their first proper hands on technology on some of his original products. Probably can blame him for the ZX81 and Spectrum 48k that I’ve ended up working in technology still after all these years after...

    Election Boundary Changes

    Quite surprised just how much some of these are changing when you look round the maps. I.e. great Swathe of Fulwood joins the Preston Boundary whereas lots of areas like Garstang and Broughton switch completely from Wyre to Ribble Valley. South Ribble shrinks in size but also grabs previous...

    Football Index collapse

    Been reading a few of the stories about this. I remember some people in work talked about it in the past and would occasionally get weird texts asking whether Tom Bayliss was any good or if x or y player might be getting sold but never invested myself. Anyone been caught up in this and lost...

    St George’s Centre owner in administration

    See they’ve fallen into administration after owning for 5 years or so. Owning retail or office premises in this current climate feels a poison chalice. Used to be the safe haven and steady investment but online retail and a year of people working from home have blown the economics of it all I...

    Superb Owl Sunday

    What’s everyone thinking? Home advantage and a steady old head who has done it before or Mahomes to take the throne? Given how nothing seems to be straightforward anymore in current times am actually struggling to call it. Head says the Chiefs but something is niggling that experience and the...

    Internet forums vs the Hedge Funds - Gamestop

    Probably boring to most but a kind of fascinating insight into the power of the internet and human nature now. Kind of Covid economy related but not strictly In summary: A bricks and mortar Game Store equivalent in the US has seen it's shares plummet over the last few years as everything moved...

    Top Iranian Nuclear scientist assassinated

    Given the way Trump is going out in a blaze of glory, would he, wouldn't he? Or who else do we think can be involved? "We were only there to look at the famous Minarets"

    Given todays news and the potential consequences, what are peoples feelings on this, it's a fairly emotive subject and people will have reasons for probably all the options. But interested how people see it when the situation is fairly unprecedented but also so is the way the vaccine has been...

    State Pension Age rises again Know there are many facets to this but for the few younger ones on the boards who visit this section, do many of you think there will be some form of state pension by the time you reach retirement(will there even be a retirement age anymore)? Or are...

    Will/have you downloaded the Governments Covid Test and Trace app?

    And if you have/haven't any comments on why positive or negative. I'm sure I read somewhere they think they only need 10% take up along with existing track and trace processes for it to be effective but that seems very low (unless it's 10% per area at a minimum for example to make it...

    Keep seeing this being bandied around but reading into some of it, it’s surprising how much seems to be creeping into this site when you read the main “focus points” of the movement. Kind of worrying that people worried about abuse against kids see Trump as a figurehead of all people given his...

    Exam results

    Interesting that Scotland have had to backtrack on their decision. With rest of teh Country A level this Thursday and GCSE next week wonder whether we will see the same here. Stressful enough and now people are going through another rollercoaster because they've decided meddling was better than...
