The London Stadium fiasco rumbles along:

Still, on the bright side, at least the bit about re-negotiating deals may give the 'dildo brothers' some sleepless nights.   Smiley

Fucking ridiculous this now. Schools are no longer allowed to take folders of paperwork on school trips, such as registers, because it can be deemed a security risk. You can take them, only if they are secure, in a briefcase for example.

This GDPR is affecting businesses and education, and a lot people are not aware!

This will be because plenty of idiots can't be trusted to secure data and information.  One of the top Credit Risk Buerua's can't even design a website that secures your personal data when laws already exist.  Usually in these situations people lose their ability to assess risk though - so for the 1% who cause the problem probably 10% go to the other extreme when they don't need to.

Worked like a cunt all last week, including yesterday, and was so looking forward to a day off.

Now I have a day off and I'm bored. I might get some work done.

The phrase "Raise awareness of......" is really starting to get on my tits. Obviously some things are really important charitable organisations that want/need our money, but why does our "awareness" of that have to be raised ? Why can't they just ask for money ? And as for some of the others, why do I need my awareness of LGBT issues raising ? Or Feminism ? Or even those rare diseases that are unlikely to affect me or my immediate family/friends. If something happens to affect me or someone I know, there are unlimited resources to find out more if I need to, why do I need to know about it now ? I have enough to remember without having extra stuff to think about.

I know this sounds like a really selfish attitude to take, (and it probably is) but its got to the stage where every time I hear that phrase now, I go into Mr Grumpy mode before I even hear what I supposedly need to learn about. Where is the campaign to raise awareness for the plight of people who don't want to be bombarded with stupid campaigns trying to raise awareness for some shit ?

For prevention of diseases, illnesses, and the changing of attitudes to social issues like LGBT/sexuality etc?

Knowledge and education.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.  Clearly there are people who don't want their awareness raised as they might have to start  thinking about stuff.... this can be a painful process and doesn't necessarily get the individual further forward.

BT whacking their prices up for the third time in 18 months. It breaks the contract so means I can walk away entirely, but the effort involved is a giant pain in the arse. 15% rise as well, you think there'd be some rule about not being able to up it during the contracted period by anything above inflation.

Again! The absolute arsebiscuits. Unbe-loody-lievable. Sick of ringing the bastards to complain, knowing they'll drop the price significantly but enough people won't bother...

we, I know it's the point you are making .. but... why?

security?
bored with current role?
self (and CV) improvement?

The latter two are applicable.

My boss manages various departments and has put one of the line managers of another area in charge of the team I work in. However, said line manager doesnít have time to fully commit so wants a member of the team to take on some of the workload.

Itís really quite farcical.

I was almost signed off to be the team manager of the department last year but there was a company wide structual review which meant I missed out on the real thing so Iím kind of repositioning to make it known that I still want the main job when it comes back up.

seems like a good idea to me, worst case is it doesn't come off but you learn new stuff and get a better job elsewhere!
