Not really. 7% of the prison population identify as travellers. Only 0.7% of overall population identify as travellers.

Quote from: RedHand88 on Today at 08:01:41 AMWorth noting as well that going back to the drawing board and redesigning it is not an option either if they want it for the Euros. And if it isn't being used for the Euros there isn't a snowflake in hells chance of the British Government throwing the money at it.

I don't think it's going to happen at this stage.

Exactly. We need the Euros to get this built and the IFA need casement if they want to secure the Euros.

Travellers? They have no respect for law and order.

Quote from: Sportacus on February 29, 2024, 11:32:07 PMGood to see a DUP spokesperson call out the Education Authority on BBC, although there'll be nothing done.  One thing I'm pretty sure of is that like other front line services, teachers and principals are over burdened by bureaucrats.  Between EA, Department of Education and CCMS, principals will have plenty of ridiculous red tape to wade through.

Civil servant departments are full of people who are completely unemployable in everyday life. Go to any of those CS office blocks and it's like the funny bus dropped everyone off. Clown school.

Quote from: southtyronegael on February 27, 2024, 11:33:52 AMWould  love to see a bigger unit in the full forward line to compliment mc curry/canavan. Either of mc Shane, mattie donnelly or mc gleenan would  be worth a go when available.

To be fair, Kilpatrick was there a lot of the time. I moved behind the goals Tyrone were playing into in the second half and you could hear Conn shouting to knock it in to him. And I think the first 2 balls he won and possibly won a free kick for a trip on him. Not sure if he's a permanent option there but it was working second half.

A big man on the edge of square keeps the defence honest. It's not an option every time but sometimes it is.

Quote from: JimStynes on February 29, 2024, 11:58:14 AMThey'd be safer sacking the whole show and start again. Get the army in to teach the children and the teachers!

Army too expensive. Glorified creche at the end of the day.

Quote from: trueblue1234 on February 29, 2024, 10:30:45 AMIs this pay parity not a bit of a red herring? Are all careers not better paid in the uk than here? I know in general on the engineering/ manufacturing side there is around at least a 10% uplift with similar roles in England (Not including London where it's sharper again). But cost of living here is much lower.


I agree with you that all careers are better paid in the UK but I don't think the argument that the cost of living is much lower holds anymore. Maybe in Rural NI with cheaper houses but not in the greater Belfast area.

House prices in Belfast are similar to many northern English cities, childcare costs here are higher here, going out is more expensive, bills probably the same, groceries more expensive. what exactly is cheaper here compared to Northern England, Scotland or Wales?

Council tax v rates ?

Prescription charges

Water charges

Cost of living a lot less in NI. Widely accepted.
Another example of teachers massaging the truth to suit their own agenda.

So we have so far

Cost of living is the same in NI as England
Teachers being laid off
Shortage of teachers

Quote from: statto on February 29, 2024, 09:29:30 AMIs there no academy graduates who could do a job at left back?  Shaw/Malacia always injured and look so lopsided when Dalot/Lindelof play there.  Lindelof is poor in natural position and brings nothing going forward.  Reguilion was a disaster, Spurs couldn't wait to ship him on again. 

The signing of AWB for £45million was more poor business, given that the recruitment team should have been aware of his frailties going forward and knowing that United would be expected to dominate possession particularly at OT.

 

I read or heard that before they signed AWB they looked at something like 80 different RBs.

Quote from: trailer on February 29, 2024, 08:45:11 AMTimes up for Fernandes. His attitude and constant yapping would drive you demented. Play acting rolling around the floor then hoping up a minute later nothing wrong with him. He'll be gone before you can say INEOS.

Interesting no red card for forest when Feilpe grabbed Fernandes by the neck. Same as Cassemiro. Yet another very poor VAR decision.
 
Agree with what you say, but there are alot more pressing problems than Fernandes. 

That unfortunately is very true

Now wouldn't be the time to be buying Bitcoin. This is when MSM starts to report the rise and everyone pours in. Buy it when people are selling it and sell it when people are buying it.

Some of those other shit coins might be worth a small punt. I have bit of DOGE so hoping that keeps going north. Nearly doubled this last few days. Need Elon to X about it.

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on February 28, 2024, 12:49:07 PMI don't think a teacher just randomly rocks up to being a principle

They have to do the principle which no doubt covers the managing of the school, I'd say (I hope) that it would cover a lot of aspects or the finances and budgeting requirements needed to run schools.

Not sure of any school that has a principle that isn't from an educational background, as the criteria would/should have educational background in it.

I always wondered (outside of doing the interviews) what BOG's did and what real active involvement in regards to funds and budgeting they had

Perhaps they rock up to be a Principal.
Like I said, you'd be a shite teacher
