Flashing your headlights several times when overtaking is pretty much useless, honking might make sense in Nigeria perhaps. excessive honking outside Nigeria might get you a ticket or telling off!

Thank you for the suggestion, how do I go about that?

You can email or write to your local CCG or ask for PALs in your area, they will speak to the Practice manager who will get in touch with the proper registration process...all in all avoid the Surgery as you will no doubt encounter the sloppy receptionist when trying to book an appointment or get repeat prescription
TV/Movies / Re: Screenwriter, Tomi Adesina Accuses Irokotv Of “swings” Copyright Infringement by DisGuy: 2:06pm On Jul 09

They are redistributing a content without appropriate permission. They are culpable and even as guilty as the people to sold it to them (IrokoTV).
Since Iroko did so unwillfully, here is what Iroko Must do:

What they should do is to settle out of court with the lady and pay up in order to continue streaming the content... then they agree on future royaties.
Afterwhich they will pay a one time fee (dESIST fee) to the people that shot the series and passed it off as theirs. They will never conduct business with those people or any of their affiliates in the future.

That is how its normally done!

How did you establish this is the case?

I wish and truly hope this goes to full course in court. Really feel sorry for her but shes backing up the wrong tree. the only reason why iroko will pay as it is will be purely sentimental/sympathy.

And as usual i love how Nigerians keep shouting sue sue sue.... I'm always craving for cases that make the full course in Nigeria. after 2 weeks everyone will forget things

anyone know what happened to the uber driver vs actress kidnap case?

You can/should also make a complaint against the GP practise. Gp receptionist are one of the rude clog in NHS. Getting an appointment is rocket science. Make a full blown complaint and also avoid the place afterwards.

Isn't she meant to be calling out the so called writer and producers? Seems she is looking for the big fish to trend...

And why the heck do people threaten to sue people in Nigeria instead of just going ahead to sue?

^^ True, most jobs won't expect you to start the next day except you told them you're available. they usually expect 4-6 weeks and you can even tell them you have Holidays booked already!

If you have only done a couple of months with your employee, you wont have to see out the whole notice period-You can also negotiate with your current employer to leave early or forego some pay covering your leave notice.

They even had the audacity to appeal. It's not their fault, they should have been charged to court immediately afterwards

Good day dear house ps my step sister wishes to apply for UK student visa from Nigeria for her master and she doesn't know how to go about it. Ps I really need someone that will be able to give us all the guidance she need and the procedures. The most important thing is that we want to know how much she can have in her savings account to procedure for all these. Will 4 or 5M be okey ps

There are several threads in the travel section discussing this comprehensively, she can look up the information on there and ask questions- If she is going for Masters she will have to do a lot by herself so its best she register or use the read up information from there, the school website and UK.

About booking my flight, can't afford a direct flight now so I'm thinking of one of those one stop flights. I'm seeing some with as much as 6 hours layover in Dubai. My question is what happens during those 4,5,6 hours layover when you are in Dubai, Istanbul etc. Do u just sit in the airport or do they accommodate you somewhere. Are you allowed to leave the airport to tour the town while waiting? Who is responsible for your feeding during that period?

This summer prices are crazy expensive. Never knew summer peak affects Nigeria too! You will be responsible for your feeding and extra curricula activities mate except the delay is caused by the airline. If you have a very long layover in dubai i believe you can arrange a tour round the city with the airline arranging your hotel/ connecting flight to suit you- at a cost.

One of the lessons I learnt is that if ur right hand gets a job abroad don't even let your left hand know, man is wicked, some are just waiting to hear that you have been put to shame and such people abound in my office. They won't even see my face there again, I have applied for my leave, they think I just went to hide my face, but the next thing they will see is my resignation, nobody will even know I have Left, all their calls go just de enter voicemail. Maybe all this happened to expose those that don't wish me well, but God pass them. Make I go arrange my load.

Congrats bro!

Idon't know about that. All I know is that your economy ticket does not include checked in luggage, you either pay extra or go premium economy. Just for those who booked economy and think it includes luggage and then get to the airport.

Noticed this with Virgin late last month, they have this new category called Lite/Light...no luggage!!- costs £65 each luggage!

Also Emirate are in on it too...just one piece of checked luggage for their cheapest ticket!!!

Abeg Ryanair/EasyJet should start. Hoping Nigerian Airways get into the mix by year end. The prices are out of this world! they want to turn us to another Jamaica!

It's very clear thanks. Home office is not smiling... For legal residents they should've made it shorter nah... If your kids are born here then they can apply for citizenship after 5 years regardless of the status of the parents application. I'm just wondering coz I hear some people's ILR app is not immediately successful. The kids will then suffer too.. if you're illegal that one is worse

They don't want to be seen as being 'soft'. plus there are a lot of people abusing the system-some have made a killing with their benefit systems esp Eastern Europeans- Romania etc. it's all about balance; imagine Nigeria giving everyone an easy pass when unemployment, crime is skyrocketing

What is the point of wasting value resources in establishing a national carrier in the 21st century if we are just going to sell it off?. Just encourage the massive private sector to establish their own airlines. I said it before the average Nigerian will not enter a plane in his or her life, we need the little money we have to be spent on 24 hours light, not vanity projects that will be misused by the corrupt board of directors appointed that will give themselves and their families free tickets.

Nigerians should not encourage this wasteful venture, which will only benefit the elite.

I am a PROUD NIGERIAN and I believe our NIGERIAN entrepreneurs have a better chance of having the best airlines in the world rather than a useless government airline. (Afterall a few years ago a Nigerian businessman was at the head of a private consortium that bought and ran the second largest airport in the UK, Gatwick Airport - would any Nigerian government allow that in Nigeria?)

I will see it as an investment actually, job creating opportunities, Forex Inflow etc... Most airline now are run as partnership between a big established Airline hence passing on the experience to local management. There are many businesses and policy of government targeted at the elite that has great trickle down potential for everyone, the elites wont man the check-in desk, run the back end of the airline website, or handle luggages..these are all jobs that will be opened to everyone..

We do not need a national carrier. National carrier are just pride symbols and white elephants that developing countries use to deceive themselves. Which progressive country has a state run national carrier?

Nigeria should provide drinking water, 24 hours light, good health care to everybody in Nigeria before providing an airline that less than 0.01% of people in Nigeria can ever afford to fly.

The richest, most peaceful and developed countries in the world do not have national carriers yet their people have 24 hours light and water and their airports are busier and cleaner than ours

A national carrier doesn't necessarily have to be owned 100% by the state...many developed countries have national carriers..that they eventually dispose of totally to private investors or invest in through pension/sovereign funds

That happens in almost every UK city I've been too. You'll learn to ignore.
Another racist behaviour is people refusing to sit beside you on the bus or train. grin
Or when you stand up to give the space to an old person, and the person ignores you and prefers to stand
grin grin

Anyway, I much prefer Glasgow to Murder Capital.

personally, I wouldn't class this as racism, as i don't know the reason why ...but i do this myself so i cant point fingers at other.
I sometimes prefer to stand even when there are seats available, space might be tight (the other person might be on the big side) or i want to make a call and don't want to inconvenience anyone...or could just be going a few stops..
