I think that depends where you work. In my place of work the admins are usually paid the same if not more (sometimes up to two bands higher) than the lower level nursing staff.

I think things like footballers and actors etc shouldn't really be figured in this as their jobs don't exactly work in the same way as 'normal' jobs and wage is governed by other things.

Carers and lower end nursing staff. Earning between 12000 - 18000, for difficult, physically and emotionally draining work with a high level of responsibility that most people wouldn't want to do....

I think that depends on what sort of holiday you're after. Years ago, without question, yes. But I think with many travel companies now getting exclusivity on various hotels, it makes booking it...

We normally do a long (10 - 14 nights) holiday abroad out of peak season and do several long weekends in the UK. But I think now we are become better off, we'll more likely do one long holiday...

I can't say exactly, I don't know. But I know for a fact that is the method used in those tricks often. Granted, Derren may have used another technique. Why would he possibly need to know their seat...

That's why they get so many people on stage, so they can guarantee they'll get enough info about at least one.

Well yes, but I guess that's kind of his USP, so to speak, in the same way Randi sells himself on being a rationalist and debunker, P&T are old school magic with whistles and bells on. They are all...

I'll have a look for the quote, I believe it was in an interview so it might not be easy, but I will try to back what I say up. FWIW, I can understand why people think Derren does believe mentalism...

Dynamo certainly does. Do people really think he can levitate for goodness sake? Penn & Teller too recently and they are from the same debunking ilk as Derren.

But I think you can't expect an entertainer/magician to be 100% honest all the time, it kind of goes with the territory. It would be a rubbish magic show if he explained how he was doing it as he...

I never understand the slating Derren gets. He always says what he does is a trick, he says in Infamous that he is not doing any real mediumship, he is just using techniques that mediums use.

No point speculating about the perpetrator. Could be a victim of abuse, could be a budding psychopath, could just be an arsehole. Until people know there's no point getting up in arms about it.

People who won't apologise for being wrong. They either just pretend it never happened or say they don't want to discuss it any more?

Are they this weasel like in real life?

That is the slight confusion I have. Either she doesn't think he intended to murder and thus CH is reasonable or she does and is only focusing on intent to kill Reeva.

I think she was absolutely right in that there just wasn't strong enough evidence to convict him of pre-med.

I think she was right to dismiss witness evidence is she suspected that it may...

Sounds like she is rejecting that Reeva could have screamed and the witnesses were mistaken. I think he might be getting acquitted, he won't get pre-med at the very least. Considering that was a big...

Out of interest, many in this thread seem to speak highly of Masipa. Will you still have the same opinion if she decided on acquittal, say?

You don't get the best tactic then for getting the most money at least.

Let's say there is 1000.

If we both split, the MOST I can walk away with is 500.
If they steal, I walk away with ZERO
