  1. Quite, what would be the point in explaining what you mean. It's only a kick-about on an internet forum. My point is that Peter Sissons is being simplistic. I don't remember much anti-war coverage from them, or them falling over themselves to warn us about the completely obvious failings in the financial system until it was too late
  2. What, the real world of Sky News? Or maybe go the whole hog and have Fox News, whose existence seems to be entirely reliant on kicking government, except if we can have a damn good war. Standards of journalism have nothing to do with political bias. The vast majority of newspaper and broadcast media content is reporting and opinion. There is very little proper journalism in any of the mainstream media.
  3. The main thread says the BBC is left wing, yet no one replying seems to have a much of an idea what constitutes left wing.
  4. The longer this thread goes on, it becomes apparent that people don't really have a consistent idea of what it left and right, liberal, authoritarian, conservative, libertarian etc. It entirely depends on your own point of view. The Guardian is clearly more 'left' than the Times, but both are 'right' compared to Socialist Worker. Both the Times and Guardian carry articles of varying viewpoints, but the mix is different.
  5. Because it's a wage cut for everyone in the country, without breaking any contracts. The workers than have to fight to get their pay restored, and they normally don't manage it in full.
  6. That's only part of the story though. Fear of default will cause the currency to fall as well. So if interest rates are too high for the economy to handle, the currency can weaken.
  7. It shows just how right wing the people on here are if they think that the BBC is left wing. There is only one left wing party with any seats and it's called the Green Party. They have one. That's how institutionally right-wing this country is. Labour is a right wing party which throws a few more scraps from the rich man's table than the Tories. That doesn't make Left.
  8. Most of them are run by private companies, so probably 15k, but the business owners will be rolling in it like pigs in shit. Private sector just equals less pay for workers, more pay for owners.
  9. I had noticed that you believe all kinds of crap, but fairy stories as well?
  10. 10% on UK factory worker wages would hardly make any difference to the finished goods price. Why do they think it would for goods from a country where they are paid a tenth of our workers wages?
  11. Do you all really believe that the only alternative to the US abusing the world is USSR or China doing it? Christ !
  12. If you are that hacked off, sign on the rock'n'roll and start throwing rocks.
  13. That clearly shows just how many sub-40k properties are changing hands and not appearing in the figures
  14. Signing on used to be taking a record of what you had done to the Job Centre at a set time, with the staff doing a search to tell you what jobs they had on their system (normally useless if you have any qualifications). Signing on is currently being at home at a set time once a fortnight for a 30 second call from an overworked "advisor" who says how is it going, then puts the phone down if you actually have anything to say
  15. Look to the GDP deflator. 2.4% or so, when RPI is nearly 5%. I'll let you do the maths.
  16. When the economic rents fall to a level more closely matching productive capacity.
  17. And a recovery is defined to be someone buying a KitKat (chunky or 4 finger, not 2 finger!!)
  18. The Bank of Emgland's policy on controlling inflation is easily summed up : Oooh, we didn't expect that! Nevermind, it'll be alright in the long run.
  19. Bond market is rigged by the central banks. There are NO price signals you can trust other than the exchange rate, which is very volatile.
