  1. That sort of thing wouldn't happen in Britain! The conviction that is, not the corruption - we've got the best politicians money can buy.
  2. Wonder how long it'll be before Johnson adds that to his list of reasons why the Scots can't be trusted with independence.
  3. Coronavirus is unlikely to cause a house price crash. Missed by most of Fleet Street, but noticed by The Daily Mash (the only paper that really has its finger on the pulse), there are unsung heroes fighting a long and lonely war to keep prices and rents rising no matter what. Read about the REAL frontline heroes of the pandemic here.
  4. So the customers of Yorkshire Energy have been shunted over to Scottish Power, eh? This outfit, in other words....
  5. Er... the chance of Scarborough Council doing anything to help the people of Scarborough isn't that great. This is the council that awarded the freedom of the borough to Jimmy Savile. They run the place like a banana republic.
  6. Five years since it was put on the market, still unsold. By now, anyone local who might have been interested will have looked, shaken their head and moved on. Which leaves incomers. Yeah, right - see you in another five years....
  7. The government would interpret this as using Luton and Stansted in times of crisis as well as Heathrow and Gatwick.
  8. But most people weren't involved in drawing up the self-same rules that they later broke.
  9. 858 people living in a six-block development in London are being moved out immediately because of serious safety concerns relating to the construction of the buildings.
  10. “Getting out of the EU can be quick and easy – the UK holds most of the cards.” - John Redwood July 17 2016 “The free trade agreement that we will have to do with the European Union should be one of the easiest in human history.” - Liam Fox 20 July 2017 “I believe that we can get a free trade and customs agreement concluded before March 2019.” - David Davis 18 January 2017 “We are going to get a deal which is of huge value and possibly of greater value.” - Boris Johnson 16 November 2016 “Within minutes of a vote for Brexit, CEOs would be knocking down Chancellor Merkel’s door demanding access to the British market.” - David Davis 4 February 2016 “The UK must prepared for no trade deal with the EU.” - Boris Johnson 16 October 2020
  11. Partner has been WFH since the 1980s (freelance translator). Sends all relevant bills (energy costs and the like) to the accountant who deducts a pecentage and submits it as expenses. Apparently the Inland Revenue allow a slice of these costs as business expenses if you WFH. No idea how much exactly but maybe somebody on HPC more knowledgable in these matters does. Also unsure how this would apply if you're a direct employee rather than self-employed.
  12. Er, no. Jo Swinson was talking about Jo Swinson as potentially our next PM.
  13. Once again the so-called "experts" were wrong about post-Brexit life, predicting the need for passports or other documentation to allow transit from England into newly-independent Scotland. In fact, as arch-Remainer Gove confirms in his latest Project Fear rant, you're going to need documentation to enter Kent. Backed up by police enforcement and ANPR systems... Lorry drivers will face de-facto Brexit border in Kent, Gove confirms.
  14. How dare you sir! I'll have you know that the Conservatives are the best politicians money can buy.
  15. "Ex-Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has landed a £100,000 job advising the owner of some of the UK's top ports. The Conservative MP is working for Hutchison Ports, which operates Harwich and Felixstowe among other terminals. According to the MPs' register of financial interests, he will be paid for seven hours work a week for a year. The appointment has been approved by a Whitehall watchdog despite it raising concerns of a "perceived risk" that it may give the firm an unfair advantage." How in the name of god can having Chris Grayling as one of your employees give your firm an advantage?
  16. So you'd like to live in a State where every council jobsworth can demand "your papers, citizen". What will you do when you lose it or somebody steals it? Worry about your circumstances?
