The suite of proposed amendments to labour legislation has caused immense controversy. One of the topics causing consternation is that of labour brokers. On one hand the trade union movement is calling for a complete ban on labour brokers.

I always read nametags. My kids think I'm weird, but when we check into an hotel, the person at the front desk calls me by my name so I reciprocate.

He and his sister (not so much my wife ...) love it when I randomly introduce my mother-in-law to the waiter at family birthday celebrations for fun.

Wine drinkers are generally brand sensitive. Whether this is due to pure snobbism or actual taste is an open question.

In George Orwell's novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, he vividly describes a dystopia; a totalitarian regime of pervasive surveillance and control. But, unlike the protagonists of many dystopian novels, we are not entering into this world of control by force, but by choice.
