  1. A labour MP has opened a can of worms ... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-20070093 Basically he's said that an aide of a former PM was involved in something. There was a thread on here about 2 years ago that discussed this very thing and I'm sure I saved it because it was something that'd get deleted. I've not had a chance to find it but someone had done a massive amount of reasearch into it, it generally suggested that a recent PM/aide was involved with Scottish group, the old thread named names that I won't repeat!
  2. Britain's Poorest Hit By £2.5Bn 'stealth Tax'

    Jeez, if people earning £40k a year have to be supported by the state, something isn't quite right. I thought benefits were meant for the destitute, not to help people to "keep up with the Jones's".
  3. Generic floorplan for a generic house, fitting really
  4. Whoa, I just watched the Ron Paul CNN interviews and it's simply amazing how they have been spun! Edited Bias vid ... http://youtu.be/Jf-w5-3E0b8 Full vid (you might as well skip to 3 mins before the end as thats the bit CNN pick up) As the video states, it was fairly appartant the interview was over and he was leaving, they they mash it all together to make it look like he's leaving! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZtVm8wtyFI
  5. Twig Inspired Light Fitting

    Why does he have to sit on the arm of the sofa?
  6. Pub Christmas Drink - Economic Barometer?

    I went down the pub on christmas eve, at first it was rather busy but eptied earlier than usual, most people were gone by 2300 (stays open until 0100) and a number of locals gave it a miss but I guess we're begining to get on a bit now!
  7. Has anyone else noticed how the widows on the house don't match the windows on the floor plan? But 'that dream home I drew as a child' had a front garden and a driveway
  8. Yeah, the roads were quieter, I'm liking it!
  9. Good answer, but surely the problem at the moment is that the euro is not percieved as being safe?
  10. And this morning the spread has turned negative, I've never seen this before! UK - 2.20% German - 2.24% It's official then, the UK is saved.
  11. I was just flicking through Bloomberg and I found something rather shocking ... UK 10yr Bonds = 2.14% German 10yr Bonds = 2.14% Amazing, I know the UK is printing a few more pennies, and the euro is buggered, but this is still a massive surprise! Discuss!
  12. Question Time Grant Shapps

    Ive never seen such a Horrisum MP on this program, she really put in a satanic performance! She'll be booted out as soon as she loses her looks!
  13. Question Time Grant Shapps

    Brilliant last bit from snapps, followed by insane claps for caroline flints comments! But at least snaps wrapped it all up well, winning some good support! Caroline Flint is f'ing useless, she speak 105% pure ********! Eg the comment about the energy Market being uncompetative, even though ed milliband was energy secretary. David dimblileby is doing his best to blunt any rightwing support!
  14. Cloud Computing?

    I work for a company that's flogging 'cloud computing'. Tbh, it's nothing new, it's just a buzz word. The pricipals remain the same as dumb terminal computing 20/30 years ago. The only real advantage of the hosted servers we off is far cheaper processing power, you don't have to spend £20k buying a server for something and then go about hosting it and maintaining it, u just hire a virtual server and that's it. Proper cloud computing 'using aps hosted else where) will quickly fall by the way side when offices realise that there office is effectively shut down should they lose their network connection, slow connectivity and the reliance on a 3rd party company when things go wrong! It's a good addition to have, but I wouldn't rely upon it!
  15. How is this any different to the unions funding of labour? People donate money to get representation. It's not like we dont need any new houses anyway!
