  1. So £1 000 000 for a fake mansion with an overlarge bath(I refuse to call it a swimming pool as 29.9 x 29.9 feet doesn't allow much swimming). In a much sought after area, or not if this property is anything to go by. The furnishings also scream trying too hard.
  2. Well hopefully Nuclear War is off the table, maybe the US and its NATO partners can stop poking the Russian Bear. If I was Turkey expect to be booted out of NATO by Trump or for NATO to cease to exist.
  3. Apple are being arrogant unfortunately they don't have jobs anymore. A prime example of this is the latest iPhone without a headphone jack, even the fanboys are having trouble justifying this lunacy. The Apple bubble is bursting, they are losing sales and market share. The market for mobile devices is to peak. Without a major new battery technology things cannot progress much further and a lot of people are realizing they don't need the power of the current smartphones never mind the next generation. So given the government and Bank of England failures in the past, them buying is a sure sign to sell Apple. The next big thing was supposed to be VR, but because of the high entry cost and still cumbersome hardware this has stalled.
  4. He has got away with it because he has confused the general public with the terms deficit and debt. The general public are either fooled or want to believe the lie that things are going well as the deficit is reducing. He has managed to have such an abysmal record while imposing austerity on the poorest in society while making sure his paymasters are doing very well. So from his perspective and those who pay him he is succeeding.
  5. He is obviously not part of the right social class or group. Only those allowed to manipulate markets and exploit the loopholes are allowed to do so, look at the fuss over celebrities using tax loopholes that those in power also use.
  6. Fish and chips shops are the same as small cafes, coffee shops it looks like easy work but isn't. Close to me the little cafe which was brilliant served nice food at reasonable prices was sold to new owners in June, it is now closed. I asked the ladies who used to own it why they were selling, they were quite upfront it is very hard work for not much reward.
  7. Things will change when the demographics change. All these kids that are still having to live at home need to get voting. Just don't vote Red/Yellow or Blue. It wouldn't take much to upset the cosy arrangement that is our current political elite. I also think if Scotland were to look seriously like turning back to Labour independence would suddenly become much more likely than it is currently.
  8. IDS has a mission unfortunately that mission is the victimization of anyone who happens to be unemployed. The theme is you have to work for money, shame IDS and his family don't follow the same rules, how much in land subsidies do they receive ? The sanctions regime is not about helping people into work but about saving money. Even by the Job Centres own figures there are vastly more unemployed than there are jobs. Also you can be sanctioned even if you try to follow their rules as demonstrated by dispatches. The work program has been shown to make it less likely for people to get a job. Never mind that followed to its ultimate conclusion it will lead to less jobs, employers offered free or cheap staff on "work experience", why bother employing anyone. Universal credit is a good idea which should lead to a citizens income, however what we have ended up with is an even more bureaucratic mess than the benefits that it is supposed to replace. The fact that up to 70% of all sanctions are overturned on appeal says it all, the problem with this is the appeal takes a long time when you have no money. The other problem is IDS is never challenged on the issues, is this because he isn't stupid but a mad, delusional man and if ever made to face up to his actions would explode.
  9. Decent cheap reliable battery storage coupled with an increase in solar panel efficiency would make them viable in this country so that you could really go off grid. At which point the power companies would be screaming. If we could get the above I would love to see a mass council housing building program where the houses where off grid for electricity. This could be coupled with thermo electric for heating.
  10. Time for the young to learn the art of non violent civil disobedience. This sort of nonsense is not on. I am assuming these camps are literally camps and not reporting to the local job center each day. This is a slippery slope soon the camps will be work camps. We are going all American where prison populations provide a massive source of cheap labour. Next will be national service. Never mind the more sinister comparisons. The elites will not stop until we have social breakdown by which time it will be too late.
  11. That wrapping is going to make the building incredibly expensive to maintain and repair. The local pigeon population must be very grateful. Inside where is the seating to sit and read. As for no books well that is hilarious.
  12. It won't matter how we vote, it matters who counts the vote. Even if the referendum wasn't fixed if the wrong answer is given it will be re-run until we do. Greece could be a massive boon to either side of the argument depending on how things progress. If Greece leave the EU and the Euro and then do well, it will show everyone else what is possible. This is what I think will happen eventually but will this be before we vote.
  13. How will the banks survive if the Greeks go back to use physical cash only. Maybe this is why certain elements want physical cash done away with.
  14. What will he do if Greece then go onto recover, the other countries under austerity will also leave. When it is only Germany and France left or just Germany they might as well rename the Euro the Deutschmark.
  15. What a ******, how about comparing them to Iceland or would that not fit the desired narrative. How wrong is borrowing more money from someone to pay that someone back money already borrowed. Greece needs to default, lenders need to be taught that there is risk in lending.
  16. Does this apply to flats ? There are some nice flats on a mixed ownership estate close by that are only worth £75k tops, does that mean the HA will have to pay tenants to give them away ?
  17. There are indeed many ways that these benefits could be limited to those who have paid in or lived in the country for some time. This would not however punish the poor citiznes of this country which is what the government want to do while at the same time laying the blame on someone else. I think IDS is being given enough rope to hang himself, the only problem with this is he is just lies when confronted with any awkward facts.
  18. The bits he is proposing like outlawing tenant fees is just copying Scotland's lead. Maybe the SNP need to run candidates in England next time.
  19. Milliband is only looking like he will do something. The proposed controls have too many loopholes and is massively over complicated. The same applies to his plans to ban zero hours contracts. Do not be fooled by the lies. Want to control BTL, impose a licensing scheme administered by council, if a landlord does something wrong revoke licence. To regain licence Landlord has to put right the problem be it maintenance, not complying with legislation, etc. The tax relief on mortgage payments needs to be removed it is unfair giving a landlord an advantage over buyers for something that is an essential need. I would leave the wear and tear allowances in place. Alternatively Milliband could solve the problem by building lots of council houses, this increases supply and helps the market auto correct.
  20. Immigrants are also willing to put up with slum renting, beds in sheds, etc. This only encourages the BTL brigade to pile into property raising prices both in rents but also house prices. There is also the fact the young cannot get a job that would allow them to live due wage levels being suppressed. There are many other effects caused by immigration. To sum up the globalist agenda does nothing for the young or the poor.
  21. I won't vote Red Yellow or Blue. It will be UKIP, I don't trust them but I know I can't trust the rest. I am hoping for the Scottish to come to the rescue. Hopefully if a party needs the SNP we can lessen the focus of London as the center of the galaxy. If the Welsh are also needed all the better.
  22. Hillwalking might have something to do with subversives missing, its a dangerous hobby.
  23. The Scottish Labour leader and his party I feel have sadly misjudged the Scottish electorate. I think there campaign is actually winning votes for the SNP. The SNP have been quite clear on their intentions should they win a large number of seats, with it being a coalition at that point they are more likely to get their way than should Labour get a majority. I feel the SNP would be foolish to align themselves with the Conservative party. They could however force whoever is the largest party to try and run a minority government.
  24. I can think of some benefits. Lower insurance for automated cars. The function it provides for those who either don't know or cannot drive i.e. disabled people, school kids. With school kids it could lead to a lessening of congestion as there would be less Chelsea tractor driving lunatics on the road who are being distracted by said children. Also less taxi/cab drivers, another bunch of people that seem to have a high proportion of bad drivers. Fewer accidents, they are already proving to be safer than humans, accidents will still happen but less is good. Fewer pedestrian/cyclist deaths. Cars themselves could be redesigned to be more efficient, smaller, lighter. The Google car is an example of this. This would also lead to less wear and tear on roads, more space to park. We could have automated trucks, something which I imagine is quite a bit more tricky so will follow automated cars. Automated trains, planes would be easier but vested interests will resist this for as long as possible. An instance of this is the pilots union preventing cockpit video recording, limiting it to sound. With the latest crash they are going to lose on this one and I could see it being used for implementing automated planes, or planes that can be controlled from the ground. Will there be downsides, yes there will especially if your livelihood depends on transport.
  25. I actually think the SNP being in charge would be a much better thing. They cannot be any worse than the incompetent bunch of fools we are currently dealing with, they do seem to care about their populace.
