I thought the big issue with getting folk out of hospital was lack of beds

Turns out, there are 360k vacancies in the care sector

Loads of , bed capacity, no staff

Any ideas why?

 

We can just make our own lazy/workshy fill those positions

Minimum wage for wiping old folks’ arses would be a good place to start, I’d imagine. 

There are lots of private nursing homes around. I wonder if the actual owners are low-paid as well. 

The ones that rely on state funding for inmates are apparently struggling as rate per bed not matching costs of heating and food.

Average costs per month  are £3500 with nursing and £2800 without

i genuinely dont understand the train strikes 

what has it got to do with the govt

i thought they were private companies

Don't think it's as straight forward as that 

Doesn't the govt set how much they can increase fares by?

If they were totally private then they could charge what they want?

But as has been mentioned previously, she was 15 - prime age for grooming. How is one 15 year old "old enough to know what she was doing", but another 15 year old is "too young to know what she was doing"?

Pretty sure many countries have death penalties which are nothing to do with Taliban culture. 

Pretty sure you're correct. Would you want to live in one of those countries?

They are

I thought that’s what our army was doing in Afghanistan?

But I thought they could only kill folk they knew for certain we’re planning actual attacks?

Not sure living with the Taliban counts, otherwise you’re suggesting we kill ALL talibanis, which is sorta kinda genocide I think maybe possibly.

I wouldn’t mind living in America (for a short time anyway) if I’m honest, Dubai not so much but if push came to shove or a good offer of work came up then yes I’d go. I wouldn’t go to one of those countries and commit crimes though.

I do not believe she was groomed, I think she was a headstrong 15 year old girl who knew exactly what she was doing, a kind of Mata Hari

What you "believe" or "think" is irrelevant. And in this case, you're saying someone should be executed based on your 'thoughts' of them.

Based on what? I hate to sound like I’m pulling your argument apart, but grooming is a thing that exists for young girls of all backgrounds. It’s not just Rochdale…

Nobody knows what they are doing at 15. Think back to when you were 15.

I knew fuck all about anything at 15

Not even a school shooting? You'd want to immerse yourself in the full American experience.

Bit of a difference from being told you’re joining a terrorist organisation online which will result in the deaths of innocent people and being offered drink and drugs by dirty old men. 
 

I think the majority on here would of had a dabble with alcohol at 15, I doubt many were planning on joining the IRA

How did she assist them?

I thought she got married to one. It's not like she was out setting bombs off was she?
