I watched it
I was expecting more "equality" speil for the girl


It is recognised in 2019 that women can do all these jobs, no more or less than a man can.  So there is no need to "hammer" the equality issue anymore thank goodness 8) 8) :y
Let's see how far she goes.  ::)

£7 billion of your money already spent.

Might go £30 billion over budget

How on earth can they under estimate by so much!
Quite easily, I should think. Can you imagine what kind of impossible exercise trying to guess what something as huge as HS2 would cost? Just for starters, how could they possibly estimate how much it would cost to buy up all the properties that either needed to be demolished, or the owners compensated for a drop in value? That piece of the equation alone would make your mind boggle.
There must be thousands, or even tens, hundreds of thousands of different contracts related to costs. No way were they ever going to get anywhere near an accurate figure.

I think the point Varche is trying to make is that they always estimate a low figure rather than a high figure.


How often does a contractor say ........we estimated 125 billion but it only cost 60 billion. Have a drink on us.  :)
Of course. A contractor will always lure you in with a competitive price and then, when you're too far in to cancel, hit you with the actual cost. You could make them sign all sorts of contracts, with price and time scale included, but if they go bust it doesn't help anyone. It happened to Carillion and look at the mess they left.

But I think HS2 was a case of it just being near impossible to estimate.

Ah money for nothing.

Rescue stuff from a skip. Incur petrol costs, hours of sanding down, spray painting, more costs selling, more petrol, manhours excluded and then with a flourish , back to the original person dumping to present a “ profit” of £30 which is actually a loss of £300 .

Oh forgot to mention that the five legged table painted like a cow that no sane person would buy was sold to a “friend”.

Rubbish programme . Tat.
I agree. You'd have to be a particular type of tosser to part with hundreds of pounds for an upcycled garden gate.

So they may or may not be good for modern day handbrake turns! :(
They are unable to do a handbrake turn, controlled or otherwise.

Apparently  ::)

Poor teenagers!  :(  What will they do in empty car parks now?  ???  :-\

Apart from smoking weed and shagging that is!  ;D
And emptying the contents of their cars on to the floor.

He does that recycling programme in the afternoon as well. He gets old tables and chairs and just paints the legs different colours.

All fixed, they'd replaced condenser and the pipes from that to compressor. Dealer said it was a strange one, they'd never seen anything like that before on one of these models. Initially they'd went to fix the seals at the pipes in the compressor then said that it was still leaking at condenser, would it be rude of me to think they bust something in the process of taking the pipes out?

They initially said it was defo a warranty job, but then had to take pics to send to "their insurance company" leading me to think they done some damage while trying to repair the original problem.
Well none of that matters. You've got your car back in working order.  :y

I love it. I find it really relaxing to watch, and the women (one that restores ceramics, one that works with leather and one that restores paintings) are really skilled. The only fly in the ointment is the person of colour  :) who seems to be in charge but does eff all.
A true reflection of life, I suppose.

My smillies have not worked for ages. Did not realise it was Edge. My favourites are stored under Edge.  Have just signed in with Windows Explorer, and ...they work  :y :y :y :y :y
You need to show Baza how to do it, young fella.  ;)

I suspect that TB would rather Diane Abbott sat on his face
Actually, that would be a difficult decision.

Fill your boots. Why not both? :)
TB's no one's face is big enough for that.
