    I sold it for a tidy profit, but thanks for your concern.

    I'm not a BT 'engineer'. I hope you're not a detective

    That's what all the BT employees say too.

    At least I assume they do, given the speed of their reponses

    It was a sweeping generalisation response to your sweeping generalisation. I would have suggested that was a score draw.

    More than happy to criticise the NHS btw, and I believe I do frequently. You seem to trip over your flat feet understanding that, and become blinded should someone be critical of the police. Meh. That sounds like a you problem tbh.

    It must be a me problem then because I can’t see how I can respond to a post about concerns of NHS trust leaders by referring to NHS trust leaders in my reply can be a sweeping generalisation..maybe your skin has become thin with too little daylight?

    And I wasn’t blinded by your clumsy attempt to try and score a point about my former profession , but then if we judged all you Doctors and Nurses based upon Harold Shipmans actions maybe you would have a point in inserting an unconnected, irrelevant and plain nasty jibe in your response ..

    on reflection, maybe it IS a You problem ..

    How to miss the point without really trying.

    When I worked at Rolls-Royce* they still paid overtime and/or let you accrue leave. They also had a final salary pension which included overtime in its calcs. This was in 2006.

    The office was full of old boys "working" their socks off, retiring on an obscene final salary pension and coming back as a consultant the next week.

    I think they've had one or two culls of middle management since I left

    *The proper one, not BMW

    I believe there have been one or two nurses who have managed to kill their patients. Should we be referring to all nurses as poisoners?

    Stupid.

    I lost it when I got promoted , which was ideal as it boosted my final salary pension nicely enabling me to retire at 48 ..
