    If Pretty Pink Fairy can't manage it with his subtle diplomatic nuances Boris hasn't got a hope.
    I know we don’t need further evidence of this government’s utter ineptitude but choosing one of politics most divisive MPs to try and unify the nation is utterly absurd. And just as bad is that this news goes around the world. It’s ****ing embarrassing.

      I work in IT and my industry (and me personally no doubt) will have been responsible for the losses of many jobs over time.
      Word processors - all those typing pool jobs gone.
      Business systems - automatic printing of paperwork - see above.
      Then data input - barcode reading, SFDC systems, electronic transactions. All removing the need for human intervention.
      Automatic reporting of data - no manual intervention required.
      Etc, etc. All this leads to efficiency/productivity gains, but so often these things are resisted by the left as “you’re taking our jobs away”. There is some truth in that, but without the productive gains, these industries eventually become uncompetitive and wither away, so you lose all of the jobs.

      One thing I read recently is that within the UK, being that we are more of a service industry, it’s much harder to get ‘productivity improvements”. It’s easier in manufacturing, as you can improve automation/speed of machines. If you’re selling ‘time’ services, how can you measure productivity and how can you improve? This is where statistics can be very misleading

      Most service companies normally do time in motion studies ( and that's not a no2 ) to try and increase productivity
      I spent a 25 year career using technology to improve productivity and accuracy in financial services companies. Having originally trained as a Manufacturing production engineer at Hollingbury, I can definitely say there was more scope for improvements in services than manufacturing.
