Brett, you have always been my mystery man.

You know me, and must be a friend of mine from back in the old Palace days.

But I am a loss as to who you are.

Don't utter any words of grievances. Be the better person, and look towards other potential employers and your CV from your recent employer.

However, make a note a where your (ex) bosses live, and always carry a spray can of brake fluid, should you happen across any familiar cars.

On another positive note, I checked my bank balance yesterdy and the bank recredited me with an extra 400 notes that they took automatically while we were renegotaiting a credit for the effects of the pandemic.

It would have washed through eventually, but I didn't expect to get it so soon, and in a useful lump sum.

It’s at the very least a very large night of stiff drugs and loose women in the finest cat houses of Santiago.

The cat houses are closed. Occasionally the news shows one being visited by the quarantine police and the owners and embarrassed marriage strayes being led away to a police van.

A 15 (or so) strong group of organised drug pushers were arrested this week for using permissions and delivery app services to deliver drugs of choice.

I have seen some funny things that make the tedium of repeated news watching occasionally worthwhile.

One young chap was arrested trying to break quarantine in the boot of a taxi. The taxi driver was arrested as well. Another chap was hiding in the luggage area of an intercity bus, with a substantial amount of cocaine.

Some are not so funny. Yesterday a late middle aged woman was arrested for operating a drinking club serving retired gentlemen.

Past that stage mate.

But I will be giving online business classes for our mutual boss, so I guess the whole shebang will have to be shaved off.

It might just shit them up and persuade them to pay you more...

Anyway just a thought probably not relevant

Pretty forward thinking operator for the times, but a form of bonded slavery was in place (like everywhere) where people were paid in company tokens to use in the company town.

If there were a statue of James, I would suspect it wouldn't survive the 2020 cull.

I probably wanted it, or needed it mate.

As always, it is the manner of dismissal that sticks in the craw.

I could just walk away, but I don't want to accept them linking my dismissal to a vague suggestion of poor performance without comparative evidence to back that up.

Yes, remember though, that Chile operated a near serfdom society at least until Allende tried to change things, and even then it continued in many forms throughout the Pinochet years.

Seeing as they are only now in the process of changing the Pinochet Constitution of 1980, and with the authorities and owners of Chile making the populace credit dependant, there is a good argument that this persists to this day.

Pinocheista politicians still fillibust on social reform laws delaying lawmaking by citing changes as being against the constitution.

If you were to go back 100 years, the end of the peak of the desert mining boom, it wouldn't be a stretch to suggest 80% of the population was bound to mining, desert, or agricultural serfdom.

The great Pacific war of the 1870's was based on a Chilean governmental land grab to benefit British mine operators in the Atacama desert. The Bolivian government wanted to raise taxes on foreign operators, and the Peruvians stuck their noses in and wanted a piece of the action. They even tried to get Argentina involved, but the cagey Argies had their sights on land grabbing disputed Patagonia while Chile was occupied elsewhere.

It is seen as the great patriotic war in Chilean history, and weighs heavily on the Peruvian and Bolivian psyche to this day. But really it was a lot of lives lost to the benefit of the very few. It is only maybe in the last 30 or so years that Chilean people are seeing the economic benefits.

Good. You English scumbags should never have been there in the first place whereas Catholicism is autochthonic to South America.
