  4. Several issues will affect this. There will be NO unemployment after all the migrant workers earning less than £38k are sent home, DrinkDriving Minister Robert Jenrick told us today. There will also be no benefits either, as the Government is stopping all that rubbish, speshly for the illegals who will all be taken in dinghys to Rwanda. The government will also have access to your bank account, PIN number and birthday cards so you will have no money at all. A boat can be classed as a tent under new legislation put together by the Patel/Braverman thinktank and will thus be removed. Homelessness doesnt happen any more as this Government pledged to end it in 2017....and always carries out its pledges. Seriously though The boat will have to have an enhanced Boat Safety, be registered as a business with CRT and have a fixed address(mooring) in order to be considered for housing assistance on a rental basis.

  22. Keep reading, you’ll see it was tongue in cheek. Not that you’re the only person to bite. As for towpaths I’d be amazed if they aren’t in the best overall condition they’ve been in since long before the demise of horse drawn boats. That would be in the living memory of everyone on this forum or thereabouts.

  23. Sad isn't it? Our Syd is a rescue from someone who didn't realise the time, effort and expense in looking after a dog. He wasn't abused or beaten just left alone and malnourished. Even so that has left him with some issues that after 5.5 years have still not been resolved, mainly revolving around being left alone for short periods. If we were to get another dog after Syd we would certainly look at rescue's again but we would also seriously consider a pup from a well regarded breeder. Far better chance of moulding a well rounded dog from a young age. That said Syd is a character and certainly keeps us on our toes. Certainly not to be trusted around anything small and furry. He has turned into a good pub dog though and he loves travelling and exploring new places.

  27. Dog ownership has expanded considerably during and since the pandemic. Which is now biting us (not literally) because lots didn't appreciate the responsibility and costs associated with dog ownership and are now trying to re-home them or give them up. Our local rescue centre is literally full to bursting.

  30. On the lead up to Christmas there are loads of jobs going. How can you be overqualified for a manual, menial job say in a bar or restaurant if you don't say that you are a brain surgeon? I have taken guys off the dole, given them a crap job, sussed out what they were good at, and given them a new career and a good living. I would sweep streets rather than have be out of work.

  32. This is a bit of a long shot. I’m writing the history of Hampton, our 1911 Braithwaite and Kirk horse boat. There is a gap. After 1948 it was sold to Robert Teal on the Trent and then around 1970 was probably sold again. I’m told it was towed to Trent lock where a swim was fitted. After that it was based around Chester. From the late 70s onward I’ve a pretty good idea of what happened to Hampton. It’s the period 1948 to the late 70s that I’m struggling to fill. There are traces of the swim – now removed – that intrigue me. Why a swim? Was Hampton ever motorised? I suspect that Hampton was a fairly mundane workboat which nobody ever bothered to photograph. We've spruced it up a bit since its working days.

  33. There are lots of reasons why folk can't get jobs. So many are now zero hours that they mess your life up more than not having one at all, calling them "jobs" at all should be illegal. I spent about four years unemployed in York as I was overqualified for some jobs and under qualified for the rest . I applied for hundreds. It really aint that simple.

  34. Not really very helpful. The OP has told us that he is unemployed and will be homeless at the end of the month, but as we do not know the circumstances, it is, perhaps, inappropriate to be judgemental.
