    Let's just consider the participants of CUK which should give a good indication of the current state.

    Good contractors with skills always on a contract....

    Milan - a mad man with no other knowledge but his own little SAP area- however is excellent in this - working abroad
    BlasterBates - very sound contractor with a propension for doom - working abroad
    Chef - a very reasoned person - working abroad
    Darmstad - a very serious engineer (a bit too germanised though) - working abrod
    Threaded - a genious with eccentric manners - working abroad
    Pondlife - a great intellect mind with humour - working abroad

    Now let's see who else is left working in UK:

    AtW - a mad russian millionaire who will spend all his life chasing squirelles and his illusionary dream of becoming a famous software writer - working in UK
    SallyAnne/CM - boozy girls who manage to stay sober only on wednesday - working in UK
    SasGuru - a failed middle manager who cannot accept his total ineptitude as a technical person who has been tricked to accept that kind of job to do the least damage while he can keep wasting all his time posting here - working in UK
    DodgyAgent - a sleazy business man who would sell all his family for a few quid in the pocket - working in UK
    BrilloPad/Diver - comedy writers who are here only to pick up some ideas for their new shows - working in UK
    DimPrawn - a wannabee millionaire whose paper fortune of luxury properties in Swindon, made in the dot com boom writing HTML pages, is falling apart - working in UK


    Now which workforce would you want to run your country?
    I've seen much of the rest of the world. It is brutal and cruel and dark, Rome is the light.

    Ah classic. The world moves on, The UK will survive quite nicely, and even when the good times come around again, posters like this will *still* be doom and gloom.

    Some ppl need to get out more, take a *real* close look at the world and realise that life doesn't get a whole lot better than you have it now.

    'Failed State' LOL

    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”
