Capey.

I've heard quite a few ex-players say how much they wish they'd played on for as long as possible because nothing compensates for it. With the money they get now they don't need to work again...

It's Catch 22 capey. The money secures the future in a career that can end with one assassin's tackle. But once enough has been put away, the basic need is job satisfaction. In a very minor way, been ...

I don't like beards, never have, but in all honesty I couldn't grow one anyway. I can use a Gillette for maybe 2 months just 'shaving' if I dare to use the word. One flash of the blade, the whiskers s...

FT To be fair, Auckland is a bit of a long commute.

Wise up.

Morgan is indulging in a multi-millionaires' vanity project.

Compared to the Greed League clubs, his investment is puny.

Wait till he grows tired of his plaything...

EFTA which the UK helped to form as an alternative to full EU membership was a far better idea for many countries. In the UK we are talking about devolving power to the regions because one size does n...

Having read the article I am no nearer knowing whether he wants a Referendum or not. Typical of MP speak where many words are used to confuse the issue resulting in the status quo.

Can only ever be a Theatre or Playhouse on the site that is the Conevant on the land, ever wondered why the Plaza was knocked down & not built on?

This may seem irrelevant or even irreverent, but it seems that the council are following the old army adage of "if it moves, salute it, if it stands still paint it," or in their case ticket it.

BlueWolf

If national express want to use it as a place to swap drivers or to take a rest for a few minutes then they quite fairly risk ticketing.

The sensible thing to do would be to do all that at the bus...

Sorry Markie but I'd check your figures, grade 7 is not the highest executive grade, as grade 2 is, and a grade 7 is on way more than 60k, on all other points I agree. :-)
