Re: Tories in chaos

There's plenty of decent ammunition you could chuck at Priti Patel, but Dianne Abbott definitely doesn't fit the bill. She is hopeless.

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

Now now, fair's fair mac. You can't go using that defence when you yourself have blatantly imposed your own interpretation on things that others may not have said explicitly.

Perhaps Cape views...

Re: CORONAVIRUS PART II

I think that JIT is here to stay, certainly among high volume manufacturing where it has an almost ubiquitous foothold in operations. Supply chains are generally well established and therefore...

This issue is being debated right here, right now on BE, in other threads, by those who may be termed "the usual suspects". :nod:

Re: CORONAVIRUS PART II

Material Controller is just a posh corporate name for a Storeman. OK, the role does encompass a lot more logistics and interface with other areas than simple stores work, but that's basically it.

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

All you are doing by "countering" them is feeding the ****ing troll (and stroking your own egos simultaneously). I can hardly be bothered with this crap anymore.

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

It is posts like these that stifle discussion here, and lead to everyone else losing interest.
