    Corbyn And Khan Are The Final Nail In The Coffin

    I wonder if Corbyn will finally be able to pressure Chillcot to publish his report?
  2. If PV solar panel and battery prices keep falling as fast as they have been, and the technology carries on improving as it has recently, there will soon be no need for a grid connection for most normal size homes. Fine for most of Europe, but not so good for shoe box Britain. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2015/04/16/experts-powering-your-home-with-batteries-is-going-to-get-cheaper-and-cheaper/ http://gas2.org/2015/04/18/battery-prices-falling-faster-expected/
  3. The right to be able to live and work anywhere within the EU is fundamental. A lot of British people do. Citizens should however be supported by the benefit system of the last country in which they worked (after a qualifing period), and subject to the limitations that country puts on "job seekers". I would suggest something like 3 months jobseeking in most countries is sufficient time to find gainful employment if you are employable. Alternatively an EU administered - and EU funded benefits system. This would make the UK less attractive to scroungers as the UK are a soft touch at the moment compared to most European countries.
  4. Experience is where the value is, and unlike knowledge is not storable or transferable and has a finite life. Most major human advances have stemmed from a combination of the two.
  5. The Americans will loan them the money - via the IMF, to buy tons of American arms to ward off a non-extstant Russian threat that has been puffed up recently by the US media. They have form for this sort of thing. The EU will eventually wind up bailing Lithuania (like Greece) out to repay the IMF. I noticed that the new Greek government only knocked the EU and not the IMF, probably because they know the crooks in Wall St would bomb them if they missed a payment. Even though it was an American bank (Goldman Sachs) that fiddled the figures to get Greece in the eurozone to begin with. If I were Russian I would be more worried about the encroaching, US controlled NATO arms buildup on my borders, rather than just a gullible EU state falling for arms industry backed propaganda.

    Neighbourly Interest

    I would let them all know you intend to sell, and if more than one offer an acceptable amount choose your buyer on a price / convenience / lack of hassle basis. You should not let emotion get in the way of financial decisions.

    He'd Get My Vote

    A proper socialist - small "s", rather than the champagne variety that pervade British politics.
  8. Which is more non-essential Food, Fuel, Shelter or court fines? Assuming you take the latter as the least essential to pay, the first three will eventually be provided to you free.

    How High Would Income Tax Be If.....

    I can't see parking fines, speeding fines or parking receipts on the list.
  10. No doubt it will be the small guy who parked a bit over the markings who will be the hardest hit. I also wonder how much TDX will be extracting from the arrangement, but as always it will obviously be against the nations best interests.

    Over They Go - Cowtown

    They have to blame something else rather than stupidly high house prices. It will be the same in the UK.
  12. The rent for the pitch was probably eyewatering, and is the real reason for the demise.
