    Some good news in the Daily Star today chaps we're all in for a huge wage rise post brexit.:):):)


    "As Brexit bites and foreign tradesmen begin to go home, Brits will turn to homegrown workers.
    Thanks to the demand for new workers, apprentices will trouser around £2,000 a year above the national average by 2022 even as they learn on the job.
    DIY chain Screwfix has surveyed thousands of workers in the industries and found that the highest earners will be plumbers and electricians, with pay set to reach £31,000.
    The average annual salary of a tradesman will be more than £27,500 in four years’ time, said the chain."

    Toilet paper is cheaper and that's all I'd use The Star for.

    So then Chippie that’s the Daily Star & Daily Mail off the menue which do you suggest as a good reliable read, perhaps the Morning Star ?

    Crowsfoot don’t think Pimlico Plumbers will be to happy with that news according to what you read they make about £100,000 pa now,

    Hopefully the info is correct and in general trades will be better off post Brexit

    I think so too.
    I can see some logic in the article (once you separate the wheat from the chaff) .

    I buy The Sun to see what the opposition are up to and I like doing the crossword in the pub on the way home, I subscribe to The Guardian and The New York Times online during the week and buy The Saturday Guardian to have a magazine to read in the bog during the week.
    I get notifications from the BBC, The Daily Mirror and The Independent.
    I try to keep a balance.

    As I said, "you're too old".
    And they probably meant 'physically', rather than the 'right' to classify oneself as whatever you choose.

    Vote Corby....
    Be whatever you demand to be!.

    Of course it's your right Chippie.....................................as is your right to be Gay, Bi, Trans, Undecided or anything else................................unless of course you is white, over 50 and hetrosexual. In that case you is the scum of the earth, your views are worthless and of course you should just shut up and accept whatever other peeps think of you.

    No, that's only true of some over-50 heterosexuals.

    So the cost to the public of hiring a chippy, plumber, sparky or other tradespeep is going to go up as a result of a shortage post-Brexit?

    That makes sense.

    Add to that the rise in cost of food, cars, clothes... and JoePubic is gonna be well pleased with their decision.

    So let me get this straight. A retired teacher, on an index linked public sector pension, is saying the rest of are all earning too much?
    That should go down well.:)
