Best place for the whure - all shysters


#6012

Leo’s mad for sex- under a bus :grin:dirty bastard


#6013

Come here. Do you think for one moment that if ff were in power, there wouldn’t be a big overspend? They’re all the fucking same


#6014

Yeah the whole lot SF incuded- labour not worth mentioning, independents all over the shop


#6015

Where did you hear that. There was only two tenderers. Bam and sisk. The only two large enough to deliver it. There were no jv bids. And there was no bid from outside the country despite efforts to attract them.


#6016

Not just bam, they looked for 200million to Make it a gmp. But the m & e contractors too. Mercury and Jones.


#6017

The tender process in this country is backward.

Highest quote with farthest projected finish wins.

I’d say quite a few lads have filled their boots on kickbacks and sweeteners with this cost overrun. If it happened in Greece they’d all be saying “what would you expect”?


#6019

There was a case pretty recently which got practicality no coverage around dodgy dealings with a gas pipeline. There was a big over run on a job but rather than make the spending known they gave another two jobs to the same company at an inflated cost.

#6025

I’m working from home today.


#6026

Turn off the fucking radio so and don’t be cheating your employer.


#6027

Hang on a second until I finish feeding my child here.


#6028

A lot of big offices have the radio piped into them @Fagan_ODowd to distract you from the stark reality and numbing monotony of working in a big office.

@Bandage is probably subconsciously replicating his office environment at home


#6029

In the fast-paced modern environment, man must be able to work and listen to the radio at the same time (and feed his child, and post on TFK).
