Cant disagree..

How many business models build in contingencies.? If you do other companies not doing so would be morecompetitive.
I've spent the last 3 weeks working on de-risking an already unlikely, but far from impossible, scenario over the next 2 weeks ;)

And outside of work, I spend a lot of time building in contingencies to keep you OOFers happy (ie oblivious to failures).


So I think many do, and many people work for companies that do, hence so much frustration when they're impacted by companies that haven't got contingency plans for something you could almost guarantee would happen...

This week I had the last astra G estate collected for "re-cycling"
(still a pair of hatches in the fleet)
took the financial loss on the chin  ::)
I paid 200 for it 5 years ago, put 30,000 miles on it .
got 120 back for it ,cash  :)
I removed the cat and complete exhaust ,battery etc and put scrap tyres on etc
chap who picked it up is going to banger race it before weighing it in
so that works out at 2.67 per 1000 miles or 16 a year depreciation  :o

Moneybags!

as long as its near enough, a shotgun isnt much good over about 60 yards.

There are weapons that have limited range that would fit the bill. Sorry, if I tell you I'll have to kill you.  :-X :-X :-X:y

A couple of weeks ago there were two crashes on motorways which affected this region. One on the M62 and one on the M1. The whole of the South and West Yorkshire areas were totally gridlocked, as people tried to find alternative routes.
Today, we have one of our major airports brought to a standstill with a couple of drones.
Methinks a foreign actor or a group of home grown terrorists would have no problem at all paralysing large parts of the country without blowing themselves or anyone else up. No need for cyber attacks although, if used in common with the aforementioned actions, they could cause total panic.
How fragile our infrastructure is.

MP's are for the most part easily accessible on a one-to-one basis.

600 terrorists and........

Mine always has a minder when I have a meeting, I wonder why? ::) ::) ::)

It'll be mandatory eventually, I'm sure, Shack.



I'm sure you're right, but at present it is not mandatory, thank goodness. :y

This year I've been able to satisfy both my holier-than-thou sense of giving and my Scrooge like nature by buying charity cards at 40p each, and buying enough for next year as well. Win Win Win! ::) ::) ::)


Optimistic you'll still be around? :)

I must confess I am a bit worried. :-\ :-\ :-\

PS But they aren't dated so inheritors get a bonus. :D

I see, guilty until proven innocent - sounds par for the course for any branch of HM's revenue collectors  ;)
Customs don't even need to knock to be able to enter private property.
Yep they have a lot more powers than the Police and Security Services, the other Mob that force entry inro Private Propery is the Electric, Gas and Water Board.

They don`t even need to do that nowadays, if you`ve got a smart meter installed, they will disconnect you remotely   :P

No chance, I suspect any of these Big Brother devices. Like Google for example. :-[ :y

Hoping to give it a wash over the weekend. Its filthy and that really annoys me. Problem is its fickin freezing outside and toasty indoors.  ::)
Seems like about a fortnight ago it was far to hot to do anything other than sit in the shade and drink very cold beer.  :o

Funny you should say that, I was in Grenada then at 30 for 2 weeks ::) ::) ::).
