    Before you flame racism remarks, go to the site! That is a bit dodgy imo.

    Work safe btw.

    What's the problem? They haven't got a photo of a token black person on there? It's not like the company name even has an addition 'ger' on the end. I don't get it... :eek7:

    i wont ask what u googled to fine that..


    p.s anybody know how much original daggers from the nazi SS sell for? i selling them for mums bf's mum.. apparantly they are original . but i cant find v much info on them. from what i can gather they are made in 1938-39 and have a inscription embedded on the blade. can provide pics if any1 knwos somebody that knows about that sorta antique militia stuff .

    p.s the guy whome orriginally owned them had them for 20-30 years before he died and was based in Germany or thereabout when he was in the army. and collected that sorta stuff (also got other original war stuff if anybody knows a collector)

    political correctness is getting pathetic in the uk at present, for all you know the name could be derived from an acronym of the companies location/founders for example. I belive you are suggesting the similarity of the organisations name to the term '******' ok you might make this connection but I doubt many of the people that you might feel could be offended by this would be.

    I don't get it either, but what I do find funny is all those sickeningly PC photos of smiling young proffesionals, with a perfect 50/50 distribution of men and women (because at NIG they are respected in the workplace, don't you know). Obviously pulled from a stock directory, like every other coporate website ever concieved.

    gonna bore all you guys stupid now.

    I work in the insurance industry... NIG stand for National Insurance Guaratee, very old name from way back over the years its was changed to the Letters only, i.e like NU Norwich Union, CGU Commercial General Union.

    I dont need to go on.

    very boring subject imo.
