It’s not that easy-peasy but I do fancy it.

    Being made redundant is not the same as being fired. Redundancy is when a company cuts staff because of a rethink the positions they need. They pay the redundant person a predetermined number of weeks wages (redundancy pay). They cannot then employ someone in that same post. The position is no-longer needed- not the person that was doing that job.

    Some of this isn’t slang… (e.g. C of E, chips, anti-clockwise)

    Just one quibble – “To take the Piss”, in my book, means to send someone up, i.e. to tease them in an unfriendly way.
    Never heard of “Strawberry Creams”, always used to call them “Bristols”.
