  1. They are rolling out the stringency part though,the claimant commitment rules,they took what was in universal credit bill and added it to the job seekers allowance bill, in the spring,and are rolling it out 100 jobcentres a month,so by april every jobseeker will have to prove he is looking for work for at least 35 hours a week which is impossible,i will go from having to apply for two advertised vacancies a week,to having to prove i have spent 35 hours looking for work,so they will be able to sanction people at will,essentially single people,so the tories will have something sing about with welfare reform coming up to the next election,being employed for a single person with never the comfortable option it was,whether the claimant is genuine or not,but you called the rest of it right.
  2. a sensible poster,the irony of this situation is last conservative government started of this scam,in the real recession 1979-1883,when whole sections of manufacturing were lost,people who signed on unemployed were asked by the staff if they had anything remotely wrong with them,if so can they go to their doctor and claim sickness benefit(old name)with the promise that they will get more money,the government were that scarred of the ever rising unemployment statistics,and from this time it became part of the culture,to claim ib to get extra money if your unemployed. but the dilemma for the goverment is still there do they want to add an extra million to the official count of unemployed.
  3. could be correct a poker player located in ireland hadnt been around for few days anyway he was playing today ,he said he had just back from the uk where he had brought a car.
  4. I personally think nothing will change much ,we propably have the most practical solution at the moment just pay welfare,but they have to be seen to being doing something to satisfy the disgruntled workers who feel they are paying ,but dont forget mrs thatcther had all the same proposals ,community schemes for the unemployed but it was all abandoned as "unworkable".basically it is public relations exercise.
  5. im unemployed single get princely sum of £60 a week ,heating my flat in winter costs about £35 a week,i have service charges of £20 a week £1000 per anum £8 per week water forget about everything else if any **** thinks iam working for £60 a week they can ****** themselves
  6. we are just a brief moment in time ,you sound like an educated chimpanze
  7. torquay is south devon(torbay)newquay is cornwall,we have mostly traditional holiday makers and foreign students,the weather you cannot beleive it,i play internet poker all day but i like to take a break sit by the harbour with an icecream or sit in the sun but the weather has been well ****,as for as the economy,developments have been abandoned ,two major employers have closed or are closing uniq and milk processer,but i would prefer to be down here when shit hits the fan next year than some of shit holes up north,what everyone one should be focussing is the budget defecit probably heading for 100 billion next year. anyway i enjoyed your airline thread and i'am going out for my icecream the rain has stopped but its sill cold&overcast and good luck with your new life.
  8. thomson travel agents have just closed in torquay highstreet along with a large dorothy perkins,three new units started in tail of the madness,completed turn of the year remain unlet,about six or seven shops at the top end (union st)have closed and remain unlet in last 12 months.estate agents hanging on with reduced staff,connels have removed their dumb posters claiming now is the best time to buy before the next boom starts and the weather is shit cold wet and raining every f**king day
  9. current odds william hill labour 3/10 snp 12/5 surprisingly odds for most seats for next general election conservatives 2/7 labour 5/2 5/2 labour?bookmakers aren`t pricing in much of a crash,perhaps a surprise ecomnomic upturn coming up on the rails.
  10. WALKING PAST CONNELS ESTATE AGENTS IN UNION STEET,TORQUAY.NEW POSTERS WERE CACTHING PEOPLES ATTENTION NOT ONLY LIBERALLY SPREAD ACROSS THE WINDOWS,BUT ALSO FRAMED AND SITTING ON ALL THE DESKS,SO OBVIOUSLY A NEW PROMOTIONAL PUSH ,ANYWAY IT READ, [ NOW REALLY IS THE BEST TIME TO BUY BEFORE THE MARKET SHOWS SIGNS OF RECOVERY(with smiling would be buyers) THEY MUST BE DESPERATE TO MAKE THEMSELVES LOOK FOOLISH, OR PERHAPS RECOVERY IS JUST ROUND THE CORNER AS THEY IMPLY?
  11. As for as the times dumbing down ,its intentional.Murdoch has just taken over the wall street journal ,at a conference recently he was mocking americans want to write in depth articles, when they should be aiming to be more populist to increase readership which he aims to do the wsj to take readers from the newyork times.asfor david smith he makes it up as he goes along.we can propbably expect a new slant to his writing when he comes back from his holiday,As for interest rates there is no chance of a reduction the pounds been sliding down against to dollar the last few days which offsets the oil price pullback and the mpc know if they show the slightist weakness ,the hedge funds will target the pound like they did against icelands currency.
  12. The chickens will come home to roost next year the goverment s predicting £5O BILLION borrowing requirement based on 2.5% growth when the likelyhood is we will be in reccesion so there coluld be a massive black hole in the goverments finiances
  13. Spoonfed garbage,is this best a socalled serious program can come up with,i turned it off with embarrassment,why do they assume veiwers are thick.
  14. hello i dont work i pay online poker most days i have my own paid for place in torquay which i am happy to spend rest of my life in the reason i look at hpc is we live in interesting times and this site adds to the mix with article pointers and links for which am grateful as for my views i think this country heading for a fall and we are moving from hpc territory to ecomony crash territory with limited options at our disposal its hard not to be pessimistic i recenty went out and brought 200 large cans of tuna use by date 2012 which in a strange way makes me feel more comfortable than having money in the bank which i have .
