    Oh yes, it’s definitely happening by stealth. No need to worry the punters here though because it’s not an exercise that’ll be completed any time soon....!

    Agreed. No party will ever want to be known as the party that dismantled the NHS

    I’m glad you’re ok. And I’m glad you’re ok about being ok, if that makes sense. I’m afraid when people are goaded they can become emotional and say things that are hurtful. Best to walk away from irritants. I’ve learnt that not every action actually needs a reaction. Newton got that one wrong!!

    Too right. A silly destructive machismo culture. These people rise to management positions and perpetuate the cycle!

    Not rocket science is it? Spot a trend early; do an analysis for cause; and put in place remedial or at least mitigating measures. Yet, how many workplaces actually do it?!! Think too many people think there’s nothing they can do to reduce workplace stress if they can’t increase staff numbers or...

    No more risky going for young bright talent like this than taking punts on expensive European cast offs

    2018/19 Idrissa Gueye

    Yeah, I’d like us to keep hold of him. Will take wads of cash to replace what he brings to the team. But keeping him doesn’t represent a £7m loss if offers of £30m come in again. That’s millions of pounds of profit “lost”. Depends on what the transfer budget is going to look like but the club...

    Anti Everton Pundits

    It became the top 6 only to accommodate Liverpool when they fell below the likes of Chelsea, City and Spurs. Sky couldn’t have a party without inviting the object of their slavish lust

    Seventh Place

    Yes that’s the one. The same team that will have all their best players snapped up by the big teams and thereby become decimated

    Or we could be putting our best players in the shop window, have their heads turned and become decimated a la the prospect facing Ajax...

    Apparently intrusive thoughts are normal. It’s how we respond to them that determines if they become a “pathology”. Apparently the thing to do is ignore them and not to dwell on/analyse them or change your life directly because of them (e.g if the intrusive thought is hurting yourself with a...

    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    Interesting articles making the rounds about the rise of stress related absenteeism from work and the problem of so called presenteeism and leavism (where workers repeatedly take annual leave days to cover for not feeling mentally well enough to attend work). Apparently a great number of the...

    Oh, I see. Still - too early to judge. Be interesting to see what happens in the summer. That will tell us a lot.

    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    Yes, and this thread is full of helpful people like you giving good solid advice. We have to accept though that some issues are too complex to get to the bottom of without deep probing by a skilled professional (talking generally, not necessarily about this case). Mindful of this, we must resist...
