    Excluding Priti Patel from talks on the migrant crisis is patently ludicrous.  If anyone over there thinks that's underlining the message that we are no longer in their club then they still haven't comprehended that the British people don't want to be in it😄

    The official reason was that it was an EU summit.  Fine.  In that case it is now forbidden for the EU to invite, say a North African leader to an EU summit about illegal migration into Southern Europe, or a senior American politician to an EU summit about USA/EU trade.

    Otherwise they are lying.

    Erm.. they can make their own rules for their club.  We gave up our chance to influence that.

    Heath’s article identifies an amorphous “elite class” who are somehow secretly colluding to block the benefits of Brexit being delivered by plucky ‘Boris’

    The fact that the prime minister is archetypally elite class isn’t mentioned.




    just like Trumpets Brexiteers are turning to conspiracies to explain the failure that Brexit is

    Yes I've noticed that too, instead of owning the clusterf***k that Brexit has become, they are clinging to straws (ShELl Is MoViNG sO bReXiT wOrks) or blaming the 'other' (remainers sAbOTaGe) without any proof.  It's up to all that actually believe in democracy (cos the 52% won, innit) to show that democracy is paid for  by Accountability .


    Control on Borders - Fail with record migration

    Big Red Bus money for NHS - Fail, NI tax hike to paper over cracks

    Better food standards - Fail, Pig culling and continual shortages

    Trade deals galore - Fail, <20% EU trade matched


    But hey Blue passports, and Union Jack on Driving licences...

    Property market unsustainable number homes sale falls record

     Meanwhile, demand is soaring, with 24 prospective buyers for each property available for sale. 

    This demand has been boosted by buy-to-let investors, who have been tempted back to the market by huge tenant demandand the promise of attractive yields. 

    If the yields are so good, they why do they wail soon as Tax levelling is mentioned?  It's almost as if they need Tax advantages

    You’re being hyperbolic but by all means start a thread about Mrs Miggins and see what traction it gets.

    Erm that would prove my point.

    If I really wanted to get the posts, I'd chuck in how Mrs Miggins helps Immigrants, supports BLM, convinced Blair to sell all the gold to cause GFC2007, racket up a National Debt by giving 100 students into Uni then paying for it by Taxing at 500%.

    Migration impacts mpacts house prices and the economy.

    CV19 impacts house prices and the economy.

    Climate change impacts house prices and the economy.

    The rest....you have a point.

    By the same argument Mrs Miggins buying cheaper cat food impacts the economy and so houseprices - yet I've missed the 3000 page forum post where its discussed to death with every internet forum cliche known to man.

    Hi all.....I had to share my story. So we sold our house in spring in the Midlands, with the view to locate to Devon as we had for many years. Stamp Duty holiday made it feasible to sell our house in an area where selling was difficult. So we took a chance and sold and then short term rented whilst we looked for a house! The 2nd stamp duty holiday kicked in and the frenzy was awful so we kicked back and took a breather. We waited for Stamp duty holiday to finished and started up again, terrible decision as nothing on the market, so we decided to look further away from Devon and into Somerset. It paid off and last week we offered on a overpriced but delightful house in Taunton. I know Taunton a bit as I have family 10 miles away. So we offered 5k less than asking and the estate agent was pleased with the offer and our position of a healthy deposit and no chain. So the vendor had a couple of offers on the table including ours and wanted to make the decision over night. True to their word the agent called me early the following morning with a statement of thanks for the offer but no luck. I asked if I had been outbid, the agent went on to explain that the money wasn't the main factor and the main factor was that I wasn't from Taunton and they want to sell to a Taunton family! I called them inbreds and told them that was pathetic! So vendors are in such a good position right now that if they don't like you for any reason, they it could just fob you off and our the picture! Funny world....thanks Sunak!!

    erm..wait till you meet the mass posters here

  7. About 9,000 tax officials will move to an office that is owned by Tory party donors through an offshore company based in the British Virgin Islands, a tax haven.

    Revenue & Customs will put the staff in the Pilgrim’s Quarter, a property in Newcastle run by the billionaire property tycoons David and Simon Reuben. There is no suggestion of wrongdoing by the Reuben family.

    The Reuben Brothers, worth £21.5 billion, are keen backers of Boris Johnson. Members of the family have given about £800,000 to the Tories during Johnson’s premiership.

    (1) That Over 18s are expected to be able to legally take responsibilty for their lives and decisions.  17 year olds aren't.

    (2) You can't think of an actual good response to my point that Tony Blair's target was a bad one, so you just have a random dig at the current government.  🙄

    ...according to tiresome Labour supporters like you.  Who would actually "despise" a bus driver?  No-one.  Time to add you to my Ignore list now I think.

    never said i'm a Labour supporter - strange how holding the Tories account must make me a LiBeRaL lEfty.


    Please ignore me, you've added nothing to any thread for almost 7 thousand posts

    I'm not actually sneering at certain degrees (although some are hard to see a point for, I agree).

    What I'm challenging is why we need to send 50% of people to University - even if it's to study Maths or English - when the country is not crying out for extra English graduates, it's crying out for truck drivers, bus drivers, builders etc.  All hugely worthwhile jobs that don't need degrees.

    all jobs conveniently despised by the Tories outside of GEs

    (1) Mortgages, DC pensions and private healthcare are not usually taken out by 17 year olds.

    (2) It is not government policy for people to lose money on mortgages, pensions or healthcare.  It was Tony Blair's stated aim to send 50% of young people to University, even though it didn't help them and it didn't help the country.

    (1)  ...and your point is?

    (2) Erm loosing money seems to be the only thing this Government is good at. Shame if it was done purely by accident. 

  12. Taxpayer-backed digital GP platform Push Doctor nears administration amid sale talks

    One of Britain’s most prominent digital GP advice platforms is on the brink of administration, putting at risk millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money.

    Sky News has learnt that Push Doctor, whose services are available to nearly six million people across the UK, could fall into insolvency in the next few days.


    How bad are you when you are funded by the Tories and still can't compete against a hamstrung NHS?

    Yes agree a degree in media studies with a masters in david beckahm studies and a phd in the fascination of cornation street to the masses may not become so popular in the future for the lower classes who don't have the bank of mum and dad to pay off their loans and provide a large deposit for a house.  

    Care to enlighten me how many institutions and how many students took that on?

    It’s ridiculous isn’t it - students in so much debt they can’t buy a place to live.  Meanwhile you can never get a plumber or electrician.

    Sending 50% to university was a stupid idea by Tony Blair and needs to be changed ASAP.  It would be surprising if more than 20% of people actually use their degree.

    No one forced them.

    Why do we need so many experts when we have numerous armchair experts on this very forum?
