    Some jobs to go in Nuneaton. The rent rise proposed by the landlord has lost him his tenant: http://www.nuneaton-news.co.uk/Jobs-...ail/story.html

    Unless he has another lined up, it's rather short-sighted.

    Miked news on the jobs front; 1 set of numbers doesn't make a trend, though: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...first-11214756

    As I've said before, we need to be so very careful taking these figures at face value. There are contrary indications in other figures that have been recently presented.

    My own view is to believe my own eyes, and I'm not seeing any improvement in either employment or future prospects.

    Good news, but I've been hearing on a lot of news reports that the economy's starting to look a bit shakey: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...shire-11353021

    There is no doubt that the economy is weakening. How much is due to uncertainty over the coming referendum is unclear. But the underlying trend (construction, manufacturing, etc.) according to recent Reuters reports is downwards as are household finances.

    I think we may be in for a tough time, whichever way the vote goes.

    I've been starting to think the same - the UK's economy will go through a rough patch whatever happens. I'm leaning towards leaving the EU partly (there's other reasons too) because leaving might be slightly less painful than staying.

    I'm in the out camp, but recognise it's a step into uncertainty. Staying is a 'safer' option in as much as we know what we'll get. However, if we do vote to stay, I believe the EU will find ways of punishing us because we had the audacity to challenge its supreme authority.

    Germany has a massive problem with migrants at the moment (self made thanks to Merkel) and they are rapidly running out of money. That in turn will mean other states sharing the burden, both by way of finances and taking bodies. So far the Eastern Countries have told Brussels to 'do one' but they are now being threatened with sanctions.

    Merkel went out on a limb and invited all these migrants, Merkel tore up the Dublin agreement as regards migrant registration, Merkel is now ordering other EU states to do as they are told or face punishment. - Sounds rather familiar to me, and that is one of the reasons I shall be voting out. All previous attempts at uniting Europe have failed, the present one will too.

    Part of DCS Europe is on the move; at least it's somewhere fairly local: http://www.stratford-herald.com/5541...o-banbury.html

    Barclays Bank is laying people off in Coventry. I've heard "strategic decision" to improve "customer service" and "efficiency" before, and the exact opposite has happened: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-37421508

    Companies rarely improve customer service by laying staff off! Hopefully, they will feel a customer backlash very quickly.

    There'll probably be the usual grumbling, then the whole thing will be forgotten about. Sadly, I doubt Barclays will give 2 hoots - too busy making money.

    I worked with a major UK bank on customer service. At first they thought I was barking mad, but once they saw the results of my teachings they became quite appreciative. The biggest issue is getting through the middle management dross.

    Now that's ruffled a few feathers!

    I really don't think it's the right place for a 24/7 operation with as many lorry movements as being predicted.

    More good jobs news, but I'm starting to wonder how long it's going to last; business confidence has been a bit dicey for a while now: http://www.rugbyadvertiser.co.uk/new...show-1-7733061
