  1. they were saying that 20 years ago.
  2. I gnash my teeth every time some tech illiterate karen on the local area FB page complains "wifi is not working" (comes up at least 3-4 times a week, in between moaning about planning for new housing). sometimes I wish the internet would have remained accessible only to people who understand AT commands.
  3. In some of the better schools they teach intensive mandarin (with very strict teachers brought from china). Of course this also includes study trips to China and a promise that the prc will cover their tertiary education fees if they do A level mandarin and do well. Naturally available for schools like Highgate, henrietta Barnet and fortismere... not scumbag comps. There's no classism in modern Britain apparently.
  4. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-12-04/u-k-grants-hongkongers-five-passports-a-minute-as-exodus-looms
  5. I think the aid budget should definitely be cut (in fact most of it really went on paying for luvvies to travel around the world and take selfies with poor third world people for self aggrandisement). On the other hand, we should increase the prominence of the UKEF (UK Export Finance) https://www.great.gov.uk/project-finance/ We should be aggressively targeting developing world infrastructure, industrial and agribusiness with UKEF funded projects. That will actually give these countries tangible returns, give a real boost to the UK's international standing and not simply act as a ******** job and travel expense account for luvvies, civil servants and "charity workers".
  6. that's because we should have Finnish style fines linked to your wealth. That'll both raise more revenue, as well as moderate the behaviour of the obscenely wealthy.
  7. what about designing fembots that do steal from punters?
  8. the trend is in place now. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/75034284#/ £4222/m2 though this is a poor house and close to north circular... (with weird one way only access). This is prime slumlord territory... and even they're not biting.
  9. is megamind going to follow the daily mirror chicken? we are in a hilarious state.
  10. not a coup per se. but there are 400 million privately owned guns. with 70 million unhappy trump voters who feel its time to "raise a militia" to stop washington DC from over stepping itself. we could be seeing a slow motion descent into civil war. It reminds me of the 1989-1990 Yugoslavian descent into civil war actually. Perhaps the balkanisation of the USA is on the cards?
  11. lesser of two evils? (i.e. risk of losing to Labour as the priced out, outnumber the haves?)
  12. dont forget a year ago prices were about £6500/m2 around that area. so at £4066/m2 (and its the starting price! not a reduction as far as i can see) is eye opening. about 35% less than a year ago. nothing seems wrong with the house. and its not a nasty area.
  13. just got sent a mailer by an EA. house for sale not too far away (north london). one of these 3 storey town house types (not popular I know) but extended and with driveway, garage and garden... Not ex-la, 20 year old private estate, not on main road, not a flat, not leasehold. calculated at £4066/m2 I haven't seen prices for houses at this level for many many years.
  14. Absolutely. And so much simpler to implement. And people have certainty about the minimum they will definitely have coming in.
  15. That's why they should have a UBI. paid for mostly from the wages of people on higher salaries. That would help tide them over this period. "furlough" is just a duct tape solution.
  16. how about people re-learn the novel, revolutionary idea of having savings set aside for a rainy day? what an infantile society we live in. You see it daily. on facebook and everywhere else. adults in their masses screaming for the "government to wipe their asses". sad.
  17. so how does the Rishi printer compare to other developed world currencies? It would be reckless to print without coordination between the major central banks. what am I even saying. they don't care.
  18. it will have 0 workers. and UBI won't care either way. If the business served a useful purpose, someone else will come along and make a better alternative.
  19. all children all pensioners all the "disabled" adults all the "16hr tax credit" types all the furlough schemers all the ones in ******** jobs which really should be eliminated a vast number of people don't work. this is a positive outcome of being an advanced society that can produce surpluses in necessities with tiny amounts of labour. Let the proles live.
