I don't think the govt fancy One Yorkshire, given that's there's more people than Scotland. Might upset the divide and rule agenda.

Endless amusement in the replies, if we didn't laugh we'd cry.

According to Kettle, Green's problem was the ease of access to porn that is the reason he had to resign. Not the watching it at work, which any sane person wouldn't do, or the lying about it, repeatedly.

“” After being introduced by the Polish translator as “Madame Brexit” – one of the few things to make her smile all day – Theresa began with a brief word of thanks to the Poles who had fought alongside Britain in the last war.””

Of course we were a lot of use to them in 1939 …

The Guardian long read is about Hinckley, haven't read it all yet but this caught my eye.
Quote:
The story of Hinkley Point C is that of a chain of decisions, taken by dozens of people over almost four decades, which might have made sense in isolation, but today result in an almost unfathomable scramble of policies and ambitions. Promises have been made and broken, policies have been adopted then dropped then adopted again. The one thing that has been consistent is the projected cost, which has rocketed ever upwards. But if so many people have come to believe that Hinkley Point C is fundamentally flawed, the question remains: how did we get to this point, where billions of pounds have been sunk into a project that seems less and less appealing with every year that passes?

That last sentence is what we're already saying about Brexit, and will be for years to come, if it goes through.

With just over 90% of votes counted in Catalonia’s snap general election, the three pro-independence parties appear to have won a narrow two-seat majority.
If they succeed in negotiating a coalition agreement – by no means guaranteed – JuntsxCat, ERC and CUP would have a combined total of 7o seats in the 135-seat parliament.
The provisional breakdown is as follows:
1. Citizens - 36 seats
2. JuntsxCat - 34 seats
3. ERC - 32 seats
4. PSC - 17 seats
5. Catalunya in Comú-Podem - 8 seats
6. CUP - 4 seats
7. PP - 4 seats

So we can't even produce one decent sector analysis after having lied about there were 58 of them...but we can produce a gigantic squirrel in the form of a blue passport.

Words fail.

Besides, my old one was black...

Hi all

Read the chemicals sector analysis as work in this area

That is something I would be expected to knock up in a couple of days and is just a very high level summary of the regulatory context of working in this sector - no analysis of what the risks for each area are (eg REACH, recruitment of talent, Seveso II etc) and what the consequences could be.

Much worse than I thought and I do more risk analysis on a daily basis than is contained in this report
