Comments for en-gb 30 Wed 23 Jul 2014 10:52:06 GMT+1 A feed of user comments from the page found at David_McNickle What bugs me is a certain poster complaining about modding and having trouble connecting to things all the time. Gripe, gripe, gripe! Thu 15 May 2008 16:13:04 GMT+1 Chris Ghoti Appers @ 11, what springs to my mind is the phrase 'oh, go take a long jump off a short pier', but I don't suppose that would help if you said about 'I haven't forgotten you; you are in your place in the queue for tomorrow's work' and a suggestion that the more you are interrupted the longer you'll take to do the job? Thu 15 May 2008 11:34:16 GMT+1 Aperitif Yes, I'm being bugged by text by someone wanting something RIGHT NOW, when we actually agreed she -- and others -- could have it tomorrow. Grr. Thu 15 May 2008 10:14:14 GMT+1 Gillianian Something bugging me? I hope not - I had to have my nose swabbed today, at a pre-op appointment, to make sure I don't carry the MRSA bug. It would be treated before I was admitted, if I was found to have it - treatment takes 5 days, apparently. It was re-assuring to find out that all patients are being checked.But - the thing is - the staff aren't being swabbed. Why not? Wed 14 May 2008 19:32:33 GMT+1 Chris Ghoti shadowmac @ 8, is this related to the old comment 'economic forecasts exist in order to make astrology look respectable'? Wed 14 May 2008 17:20:56 GMT+1 Colin McAuley While listening to your report on the UK economy today, something occurred to me. About economists. Ever since, and before I took some courses in it 3 decades ago, they have wanted to be treated as "scientists". Indeed I have seen descriptions of courses in "economic science". Well I took 3 courses while in university and had an over-all 90% average, yet I came away knowing NOTHING about economics! What occurred to me is that we all may as well be practising divination through the reading of chicken entrails as "practising economics" and listening to those charlatans who purport to predict the future of any economy!

Most working people never get to hear the programme because either they are unable to listen to any radio or the workplace radio is tuned to some other station.

Unfortunately, since we've moved onto the new "bottom up" system, a lot of the old comments have disappeared from the threads... Wed 14 May 2008 12:24:01 GMT+1 Deepthought This and today's newsletter.Slow week in the iPM office? Wed 14 May 2008 11:59:49 GMT+1 RJMolesworth Thanks FF. I didn't know that. Do they really keep them for a year. The BBC must have the biggest computer system this side of government.You were right annasee. It wasn't worth it. Wed 14 May 2008 11:57:01 GMT+1 annasee But is it worth the effort when you get there, FFred? Wed 14 May 2008 11:39:37 GMT+1 Fearless Fred RJM the Turner thread is still there. All you need to do is go into the earliest page shown on the main page, then use the Previous and Next links just below the banner. You'll get to the Turner thread in no time... Wed 14 May 2008 11:30:13 GMT+1 RJMolesworth Someone needs a new calendar. The Turmer Prize item was supposed to be available until Thursday 4th 2009 but it dissapeared this morning and I doubt this entry will be open until Friday 15th May 2009.I'd like to know what is happening in Basra Wed 14 May 2008 11:16:52 GMT+1
