    HR has no idea and will likely conceal that they fcuked up when hiring or promoting

    It was a Joanne Lumley dream idea, to have a Thames river bridge with flowers. That's the power this woman has, to motivate learned men to do her bidding.

    That's not actually what the article says - it has NOT been scrapped YET. The mayor of London has withdrawn his support. A review has recommended the project is scrapped.
    Pesky thing, reality ....

    He has removed his support.
    Which means unless private funding arrives (which is not going to happen in most peoples eyes) the bridge is over. If you'll forgive the pun.

    What bit don't you get you pedantic tosser?

    It seems Joanna Lumley is still wittering on about it being a great shame.



    Meanwhile nurse's salaries will be worth 12% less within a decade.

    The country is fucking insane.

    50m is not much in the grand scheme of things. As for nurses that would be about 1,500 each in a one time payment.

    200 bn pounds for trident submarines and missiles is however quite a major thing. The money will be borrowed of course.
