Re: 10 Hour Working Week

"The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money."

We have seen that happen many times in the past, but I fear a Corbyn government could take that concept to a...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

I agree 100% with your analysis Paul. The concept of working just ten hours a week is perhaps rather too extreme, and would only really apply to manufacturing industry, but the point is well made...

Re: The Farne Islands

With an 'Auld Gits Railcard' on Wednesday you could travel King's Cross to Durham for 23.55, or 54.45 First Class with breakfast included.

Returning the same day it would be 13.85 Standard...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

More recently we had a period of several days when all flights were grounded after the 911 attacks. It was said that average temperatures dropped by about three degrees over the period. However, a...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

We are told that our food, and especially meat production is a major contributor to global warming.

I must admit I am not overly keen on embracing a totally veggie diet but I can see why reducing...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

I remember it well. I was at school at the time and we had regular power cuts as the energy was shared around.

I have hard from several sources that many businesses found that by focusing on the...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

What a brilliant idea. I doubt that it would work for all sorts of reasons but fantasising does no harm.

Problem is, we would also need to limit gas and electricity production to ten hours a week...

Re: The Farne Islands

We always enjoy Wallington, which is a few miles inland from Cragside in the wilds of Northumberland. What a wonderful place to have lived back in the day.

Re: The Farne Islands

The sea should be fairly calm today but the rain is persisting. I wonder whether Cuthbert had this problem?

If you are looking for somewhere to go in the rain Durham is always worth a visit....

Re: Seymour Railway Heritage Centre

I used to love the old station clocks. One or two still remain at main stations around the UK but the majority were ripped out to be replaced by the horrible digital things in the interests of...

That is a good idea but we should wait until we know what is possible and what is on offer. There is no point in voting for the impossible. :)

Re: The "Like" Button

The 'Like' and 'Thanks' buttons are fairly recent additions John. At a guess I would say we have had them for about three years.

Re: Scottish High Court Appeal

I suppose this all comes back to making prison work.

In an ideal world every criminal would have an 'Ephiphany moment' whilst in jail and would come out a reformed character. Some do but most...
