    MPs to discuss today.

    What's your thoughts on kids starting school at 10?
    It's all because they say kids can absorb stuff better later in the day.

    I think it's shit, isn't the whole point of school to prepare kids for the working world?
    If you want to be a tradesman , hairy muff.

    When I was a kid, my parents would always say "Excuse my french" after a swear word... ...I'll never forget that first day at school when the teacher asked did we know any french.

    How about taking their phones/tablets or games consoles off them then they will not be up late.

    Will employers allow employees who have no means of childcare to start later then the average 9-5 workers?

    I give up I really do, they haven’t thought anything out, they’ll probably have to get up at the same time as when the school day started at 9, because mum or dad won’t be able to take them to school, as they’ll be in work, so the little darlings will have to either walk or use public transport. Fuckwits

    Do they allow 9-5 parents to leave at 2.30pm to get to the school for kicking out time now?

    We need to change the way we do things in this country. The 9-5 culture has got to end. More employers need to be far more flexible with their working hours.

    Not all companies need all of thier staff to work a rigid 9-5 or whatever. Many can allow staff to start as early as say 6 but then also allow people to work on till say 8 or 9 if it suits their home circumstances, eg school runs, holidays etc and also offer longer hours a day but 4 day weeks or the option to work weekends instead. This would also mean less of a manic rush hour, easing pressure on public transport and road congestion.

    This flexibility can be as useful to the employer as the employee ie being able to provide their services over a much longer period, keeping customers and suppliers etc happy.

    I’ve worked for several companies that do things this way and employees are much happier, more productive and much less likely to go off sick.

    It would also be an argument in favour of scrapping the hour change in the winter.

    I quite like the idea of staff starting at 6am and finishing at 9pm.

    Personally for me, when I do a project, I tend to work on it continuously with no breaks. And also I am a night owl so my best hours would probably be like 12pm-9pm/10pm continuously until I burn out and start procrastinating all day. I remember when I did my summer job, I was continuously the last guy to leave the office and took no breaks. I did all of my tasks waaaaaay before my time had finished so the last couple of days were chill :hehe:

    I'm the opposite, get up early finish early.
    6am to 3pm.
    Working away, in hot tub or pub for 4pm.
    Or do a bit of sightseeing.
