Saw the Flying Scotsman today.

Had to tweak the photo though - as it was very dark.

Google pay staff an average salary of £160,000 for UK workers http://dailym.ai/1Qj2Cjw via http://dailym.ai/android

Don't pay their FAIR share of taxes in the UK though ...
Google spent more than half a billion pounds on wages for its 2,000 plus UK staff, its latest accounts reveal.

Surely the world part is irreverent. It's Google's UK operations that are relevant???

27 years ..... It took 27 years to get the correct verdict.

I still remember watching this live on TV. I am still angry to think about it, and the failed inquests of previous years.

If there are lessons that we can ALL learn, it is do NOT be complacent in anything that you do. We ALL have responsibilities in our jobs (police, ambulance service, junior doctors, teachers, private sector EVERY job) and in our every day lives.

We must ALL be aware, we must all THINK and think again about things that happen or could happen, things that we do or don't do.

Let's hope than none of OUR actions or inactions result in damning verdicts like this in later years.

Let's all try to learn from this, and do our best at all times.

Let's hope that some good DOES finally come out of this.

I still cry about Hillsborough when I think about it ... at the time I was angry and wanted to smash the telly !

You and me both, finally the truth is out! I've just posted my thoughts on a separate post.

I was at the last match of the season last year. This man (Jonas Gutierrez) had just recovered from testicular cancer. He played. He scored. He helped us win 2-0. He saved us from relegation. He was last off the pitch. He got a standing ovation by all the supporters. He was then SACKED by the club. What a disgrace. I see I'm not alone with my thoughts.

One other thing ... if they hadn't SACKED him ... his commitment alone would have rubbed off on the other players ... We would NOT now be facing relegation (again).

The board need to find a sensible way out (of the club) for themselves.
Yet another PR disaster for Mike Ashley's relegation threatened Newcastle United. An employment tribunal today found Newcastle guilty of dropping midfielde

Just wow ...
JOHN Paul once had an idea: to build a yacht and follow the route of Captain James Cook's Endeavour round the world. In thrall to Cook's story…

Google paid its boss more than the £130million it gave the UK taxman http://dailym.ai/1nUS5E4 via http://dailym.ai/android
The internet giant gave its chief executive Sundar Pichai shares in the company worth nearly £140million, making him one of the highest-paid directors of any public company in the world.
