Some are being rather harsh on Miss M. Given that few SLF agree with the position of BASSA, it's not surprising that her viewpoint in support of them attracts derision from many quarters. ...

And yet you happily write "debt" which came into English via the French "dete" as "det" without the "b", and which was artificially inserted for no good reason in the 18th century to make it look...

That's precisely my point, Joao - that self-appointed rulemakers decided to graft Latin grammar rules on to a language which is not Latin based. And it doesn't work, any more than making French run...

Joao, the working culture in the UK is more similar to the US than it is continental Europe. The fact that there are more protections here doesn't alter that. Hence why using Europe as an example...

No two ways about it though, that is a pretty large number of yes votes. Sure, it might well be only half of all cabin crew, but the fact remains that after everything that's happened over the last...

Oh I don't know about that. My old airline used to be extremely good at stopping it. It just depends if you're prepared to check through the system and spot them - most airlines don't do that.

I'm not sure that will happen LB. The trouble with any of those ideas about a non-vote counting as a vote against is that you can make exactly the same kind of point for a general election or...
