No-one wants to work in Infrastructure, since it means having to learn the fundamentals from the Old Boys who aren't as diplomatic as the Snowflakes would like.

    Keep it like that for a few more years until the New Tories manage to merge with New Labour, and I'll be in sweets, just long enough to not care any longer!
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).
