    Who is working on the 24th?

    I think anyone considering working on Boxing Day doing domestic cleaning is a bit tactless. Christmas is a time when a lot of people want to relax with their families, probably don’t want some Herbert spoiling their piece and quite. Plus I think it makes you look desperate. Just my humble opinion

    The Brexit Thread

    The true character of a person has nothing to do with what they have, its how they would respond if they had nothing at had to start again. If someone put my on my ar5e tomorrow I guarantee you I would still get somewhere. My favourite quote of all time is from Mike Tyson ''Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth'' and most kids (including my own) need to understand that life will punch you in the mouth over and over again. I've dealt with a stepdad that used to beat me and put me down, being kicked out of home at 16, the mother of my first child running off with my best friend... and many more trials and tribulations. These things are mild compared to some people. My wife lost both of her parents at the age of 4, perfect example. I know that no matter how bad it gets someone has it worse and if kids just realised that this generation has access to information and technology on such a grand scale they could and should be the best and most advanced generation yet. The point i'm getting at is these kids we're talking about have nothing and they could and should develop something from nothing. Someone needs to give them a good hard slap across the face and wake them up. They don't need safe spaces they need to man the f**k up and make something of their lives. It's not a dress rehearsal after all, you only get one shot at it!

    The Brexit Thread

    What has changed in the Western world is peoples access to a line of credit in the last thirty years. Thirty years ago there wasn't a need for the brand new German motor on the drive, the brand new house, multiple holidays per year, brand new smart phone. Big business has tapped into the human desire for wanting materialistic goods. Years ago people lived a simpler life. Some nights I watch the old episodes of Bullseye TV show, look how simpler people wants and needs were back then. People are trained now to strive for happiness through purchasing new goods but twelve months down the line that product has been updated and a new desire for the updated version is now developed in the consumer. I look at the list of world's best places to live they tend to have highly expensive property markets and in a lot of instances an average wage, well your not going to be buying a house and if you do it's going to take two good incomes so if your're married thats both partners working full-time which creates a need for someone to bring up your kids. Im old fashioned me, you have kids you bring up your kids yourself. Today for many that's another part of life which has been outsourced for someone else to do for you.

    If the clips were flat it totally defeats the purpose of the design you may as well go back to a standard channel. The design is not flawed. I’ve had them from day 1 of release. Have used nothing else for over 2 years. Series 1 and 2. Mounted in fixed handles, modded Wagtails and Excelerators. Ive used Moerman, Ettore, Black Diamond, Razer Red and Bayersan rubbers. Zero issues. Angle of blade to glass (attack angle) is the crucial one to dial in. ...

    Start up costs.

    There's more than one way to skin a cat. You can start with nothing and knock doors for a year and build a great round. Or you can spend money on things such as lead gen and canvassers to do it for you. Not everyone is comfortable knocking doors or has the know how to market successfully online. There comes a point in business where if you want to grow further and doing it all...the canvassing , cleaning, advertising, SEO etc becomes a huge burden. Investing money in the right areas is the smartest thing any business can do. It's what all businesses are built on. So many people are scared to spend money because they only see the short term. And notice i didn't say spend 10k on a a system I said buy a cheap van and spend 10k on gaining customers...spending 10k on a van when starting out is about the dumbest way to waste money. Spend 10k on green pros lead gen would be a very sensible way to spend it, instant round, instant income, instant profit. My point still stands if I had 10k in the bank and was starting again I know exactly how I would spend it and would have a full round in months, of course I could knock doors 24/7 and have a full round in months but that's not me and that's far too much hard work. But that's the difference between a noob and someone who has experience, I know what I could do with 10k a new starter won't and will blow it all on an ionics setup. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

    Hopefully we come out of the EU and some sense comes back to their country. My first job was aged nine paper boy, by thirteen years old I was a hotel porter carrying cases and serving pints behind a hotel bar. I was brought up in a holiday town and every kid worked, either in hotels, guest houses, cafes, restaurants, or leisure facilities. I go there now the whole place is run by adult Eastern Europeans workers no kids working. Working from a young age built a work ethic in me. The amount of skills I picked up from dealing with people handling cash ect ect built a foundation for proper employment. Kids today just don't get a chance. When I was at Uni I worked in food manufacturing factories. All that food now is manufactured and sent over from other EU countries. Loads of students were working like that in the late nineties. It's a myth Brits won't work. Yes there are a lot of lazy ar5es who grew up in houses where the parents were benefit dependent, but theres plenty of good hard working Brits out there. Having worked in heavy construction in the middle East and Australia I can tell you for certain on big projects for global oil and gas companies, British workers are sought after, because we have some of the best workers on the planet who get the job done. People with backgrounds from proper qualified engineers, project managers, project control personnel all the way down to trade level boiler makers, diesel fitters, sparkies, every trade even trade assistants.

    I'm finished around 11 tomorrow, the only thing I'm working on till January 3rd is my alcohol intake. Feel sorry for those that have to work due to financial pressure, don't understand those working for any other reason.

    Spot on mate. Generally they are the people who have done REAL research. Unlike the pathetic mainstream media who basically have no freedom in their work at all and are most likely told what to report and write. Unfortunately the problem is most of the public still buys that mainstream garbage. But like I said, I think people are waking up to the BS.

    If people think that UKIP is a radical right wing party then wait for what comes along if the vote to leave is ignored.

    Sounds like you've done your homework @ks789 Yep, it's all part of a bigger plan and it's called, as George H.W. Bush called it, 'The New World Order'. I highly recommend everyone do their homework and research this cos it's VITAL to what is happening right now with globalization. Tony Blair, I don't think I could hate that man anymore than I do. The man (along with Bush jr.) who started the whole middle east catastrophe based on LIES (weapons of mass destruction). And in doing so has cost the lives of countless numbers of innocent humans and animals. This is the man whos now trying to stop Brexit. Well, whatever Tony Blair says we should do...guess what...we should be doing the EXACT opposite!!

    I am a LEAVER! You're right the whole thing has turned into a circus..WHY? Because the majority of MP's of both sides are REMAINERS! They are trying to do everything they can to upscuttle Brexit but they have a problem...we the people voted to leave, so if we don't leave, democracy is basically dead. That pathetic May 'deal' wasn't really Brexit at all. A total pisstake which was quite rightly refused. Out means out so GET US OUT..the single market, the customs union, let us control our own borders...the LOT! The EU need us MUCH more than we need them in the real world. Project fear is at maximum right now but we would be and hopefully will be a more stronger country out of the EU.

    My dad was a dustman all his life (oh my old mans a dustman 😆) in Lambeth, south London. He was a staunch union man and detested the tories. When that trog Dianne Abbott said “people that voted to leave were all rascist”, he has vowed to never vote labour again until her and Corbyn are out of the party. He said this because 9 years ago he re married. His wife (my stepmother) is half Indian. He voted out and hasn’t got a rascist bone in his body

    can I top up battery with pure and then clean an hour later?

    If the battery is really old I would just replace it. Got to be better than messing around trying to get a bit more life from it and risk losing work when it dies half way into a job Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    We could do so much in uk, if they were really serious about it. Whats to stop us manufacturing/industry/inventing and producing our own stuff instead of worrying about their poxy tariffs. it could work so well, but thats the problem, we are not independent and we are shackled to the damn global elite. Many think its conspiracy rantings, I truly wish it was, but it aint.
