      You’re allowed to be ill!

      If you disclosed it during the recruitment process (was there a health form to fill in?) and you’ve been open and honest about it, they should have automatically had a conversation with you about making any reasonable adjustments before you started in role. Have you had an Occ Health referral? It’s absolutely not ok to say to an employee who’s off sick that they’re costing the company money and being unfair!

      Sounds like you are putting too much weight on the handlebars. Shortening and raising the stem will lessen it. As a rule of thumb, on a road bike, if you are on the drops, the handlebar top tube should hide the front axle in your eye line. You might also find an elbow support brace will help stop you from doing this. I wear a good one from NuovaHealth.co.uk

      Getting a bit pedantic here (but I do think it matters), all rape *victims* are indeed telling the truth (else they would not be “victims”).

      What matters is whether rape *accusers* are telling the truth.

      @katy Yes, of course, I should have used accusers.

      My post wasn’t trying to belittle the issue of rape at all, simply point out the change in police stance and process as I understand it.

      @tom There was a formal shift (am sure you can google about it) as katy above suggests, that the base position should be that all rape victims are telling the truth. Rather than initially treating it as an accusation that needs to be proved.

      Evidence should be then looked at to support/disprove this (that the rape victim is telling the truth.)

      My impression is that the police are getting sloppy such that if they find a bit of evidence pointing one way or the other they stop looking for more. Particularly if it points towards the crime having occurred.

      Of course ‘lack of resources’ is going to be publicly blamed rather that ‘poor police work/not doing the job properly’.

      Heard a talking head the other day saying that for white people to refer to the Calais Jungle as the ‘Jungle’ is racist. It’s a minefield out there!

      That comment isn’t going to get him removed from power.

      @tom Now he’s claiming he didn’t say it. A room full of people were there and Sen Dick Durbin is absolutely clear that he not only used the language as reported but did so repeatedly.

      Surely this makes Trump not only a self-confessed racist but a demonstrable liar (as if we didn’t know already). Such a person isn’t fit to serve on a Parish Council let alone office Trump now occupies.

      Mind you, if it’s hypocrisy you’re looking for, Trump’s mini-me Boris Johnson calling Sadiq Khan a ‘puffed-up pompous popinjay’ takes some beating.
