There is nothing more uplifting then two Tories coming out of the closet together
Its a beautiful thing true love
Lets hope Mandy your coming out moment will make you a little bit less bitter and twisted. And a lot less consumed with self loathing. I know that's been a challenge you have had to contend with for many decades now
The multi faith religious wing of the CWU are preying for you little feller
"When did I say I worked for BT? You're making assumptions. You can go back through my entire posting history, and you wont find any post where I said I worked for BT, I actually worked for some of their competitors."
I do apologize Fleccy , i meant when you worked for the GPO

BT CEO Faces Furious Staff in Town Hall, Says He Can’t Boost Pay Workers press Jansen for his thoughts on their plight Union employees are voting on whether to strike over wages
BT Group Plc Chief Executive Officer Philip Jansen told incensed staff that the telecom giant can’t afford to pay them more because of soaring costs and low growth while employees threatened to strike.
In the company’s “PJ Live” virtual town hall meeting Wednesday, staff protested, asking for Jansen’s thoughts on workers who are struggling to pay bills, according to footage of the virtual meeting seen by Bloomberg. Several others pointed to Jansen’s own pay, which rose 32% this year to £3.5 million ($4.3 million), due to share awards.
A spokesman for BT didn’t dispute the characterization of the call, and said the raise they’ve awarded workers is the highest in 20 years. Jansen “felt strongly that going ahead with the meeting and openly answering questions colleagues had in a live setting was the right thing to do,” the spokesman said.
The Communication Workers Union is in its final days of balloting BT employees on whether to strike, joining an acrimonious national debate on pay. A rail strike has hobbled travel in London this week after tens of thousands of workers walked out. Post Office workers went on strike last month, and British Airways unions voted in favor of action earlier on Thursday.
Jansen said he wouldn’t want a strike to “damage the business in a way that isn’t helpful for the future” by harming customer relationships. “Would I like to do more? Yes. Can we afford to do more? No.”
He said BT’s revenue hasn’t increased for several years while its energy bill, already sitting at about £350 million, would jump by at least 50%. He cited other expenditures like investment in fiber optic lines, taxes, dividends, interest payments on almost £20 billion in debt and the company’s pension deficit.
“When you add all that stuff up, we’re actually slightly in the negative - so we’ve actually taken on more debt to make all that work,” he said at the meeting. BT should make an offer that keeps pace with inflation, a CWU spokesman said, describing the call as “a complete embarrassment” for Jansen. “It is no surprise that a CEO with a £3.5 million pay package isn’t in touch with working people,” he said.
BT analysts are also asking whether political attention on the cost of living crisis could squeeze BT’s pricing power in a retail market which Jefferies analyst Jerry Dellis described as “olig

Fleccy did you seethe front page of the Mirror today. It had a picture of Jansen and stated he had a 33% pay rise this year , which took his earnings to 3.5 million. They claimed this was 86 x the average BT worker pay. This is truly obscene remuneration , snout in the trough stuff.
You cant defend that -
Buy hey Phil thanks for the "comunitEE pantries" , (food banks), cute idea
When your employee benefits include access to the company food bank , something is seriously wrong
Fleccy you don't sound like someone that is really concerned about people not being able to afford there Mortgage. You sound more like someone that is obsessed with the value of your considerable BT share portfolio
Fleccy please help my colleagues by contributing to a BT food bank near you , Try thinking of others Fleccy. This could be a turning point in your life

Exclusive: BT call centre sets up ‘food bank’ for its own staff BT Group says the “community pantry”, which offers food to those who need it, “shouldn’t be confused with a food bank”.
A food donation point has been set up in a BT call centre for staff to use when their pay won’t stretch to the end of the month.
Officially called the “Tyneside CommunitEE pantry”, it offers employees of EE – which is owned by BT Group – bags of oats, instant noodles, dried pasta, cereal, and even baby food. It was described as being created for when it’s “those last few days before pay day and you need something for tea”.
Though it was set up by colleagues at the Newcastle call centre as a kind gesture, some have pointed out that it normalises in-work poverty. It comes as BT faces possible strike action over pay.
“It’s in recognition that employees aren’t getting paid enough to see the month through,” one employee at the call centre told The Big Issue.
“A lot of people were unhappy that the business is trying to normalise that. It’s a multinational company – it’s shameful that this needs to exist.”
A BT Group spokesperson said the initiative simply offered food items for colleagues to take and then replace, for example if they “don’t have time to visit the supermarket”. They said it “shouldn’t be confused with a food bank.”
