    Interesting, are business outside "the cap"?

     

    Wouldn't surprise me as Business is currently seen as the enemy by the Tories (this is partly justified for certain big businesses)

     

    Could have some interesting knock on effects, but probably the Tories will try to add more complicated subsidies in to sort out a problem they helped create.

    Yes, the Cap is for Domestic customers only.  Business contracts are caveat emptor - which makes the furore of moving BTL into the same category so laughable.

    0.25% rate rise in the offering.;)

    Require some sort of stability.

    BoE has lost it's 'forward guidance' credibility so even if they did increase by 0.25, it wouldn't give markets confidence they can control inflation.  They need to go big or go home.

    Wouldn't surprise me if someone is planning a Soros type run on the BoE

    Early days. She may liken it to the persecution of certain cohorts (who will remain nameless) of people in the past…you know, the terrible atrocities of the past are the same as being a landlord today. 

    There is a correlation of behaviours between Anti-Vaxxers, B*tcoiners, and Landlords - think they know the 'real' word and are working against the establishment to be the 'new' stain of humanity.  They refuse  LaMeStReAm opionions, only listen to their echo chambers, and when anything goes against them cry PeRsEcUtIon!

    Same old unionist coverage of Scottish politics. The Scottish Government froze council tax for a decade. It’s has barely risen 5% in 13 years, so I’m not sure where the “eye-watering rises” headlines are coming from. 

     

    Tory FanBoyz trying to stir trouble little realising their so-called reputation for Economic control is in tatters.  Their old wails of 'Tax N Spend' are hollow to the amount of money sp*nked by Rishi and BoJo

    If you want a perfect example of sleaze look at the Aquind data cable planning permission in Portsmouth.

    Locals don't want it ( complete cross-party), several times highlighted security flaws + risk ( Mordaunt was effectively booted over raising this and Security Service red flags) but its happening because Johnson pushing it through... his Russian drinking buddy / Tory donor is the money behind said project... with KGB links... nothing to see

    ...and yet all the Tory FanBoyz yelled CoRbYn iS iN pUtInS pOcKeT....

    agree the poorest being hit hard just hope labour agree to a coalition with lib dems and greens and snp otherwise nothing will change with Bojo simply replaced by dishy Rishis or Tank driver Maggie Truss with tax cuts for the rich in the budget before the next election. 

    Your first post literally started with "Thank God Corbin (sic) never won the last election as this would be happening in the UK now.."

     

    Please enlighten me on the difference between Corbyn and a Starmer/lib Dem/Green/SNP coalition?

    What goes for the US just doesnt go for the UK or even EU.

    Both need to raise rates, pronto.

    What worried USGOV and FED is the rest of the world moving away from the $ as a reserve and main trading currency.

    Any sniff of that and itll panic.

    USGOV worries about losing Seniority, which has been lucrative with the rise of China.

     

    Of course USGOV worries; they stabbed UKGOV in the back to topple GBP as world reserve. 

     

    What goes around comes around...

    Thank God Corbin never won the last election as this would be happening in the UK now, will be interested to see how it affects house prices if council tax bills double in some parts of Scotland as do not see a cap on how much they need and will hit the poorest the hardest

    Households in England face 'double-whammy' tax rise next year

    Strange how you care about the poorest when it comes to Council Tax, never mind as @Tiger131 that England councils (Tory ones at that too) do that.

    You are quiet about the UC cuts hitting the poorest

    You are quiet about insane housing and rents hitting the poorest

    You are quiet about Public Service cuts hitting the poorest

    You are quiet about increased NI hitting the poorest

    You are quiet about Zero hours contracts hitting the poorest

    You are quiet about rampant inflation hitting the poorest

     

    Keep your crocodile tears safe in case you need to resign for BoJo, eh?

    In a nutshell tunnel vision syndrome, its actually quite a thing and I've observed it first hand when you stick someone in a situation where they have to challenge their natural thought. Some people basically limpet to the old idea and cannot budge their mind.

     

    Have a read of the education theories by Cyril Burt...

    Actually its because if they admit he bamboozled them over one thing it opens the possibility he has done it before... most cons go on as the victim doesn't want to admit they took the hook

    That suggests cons are so lame brained they get fooled in triplicate by Cameron, May, and Johnson.

    Once is happenstance, twice coincidence. 3 times and you are a c***

    Precisely. In an academic sense I do wonder if at some level these people know they're lying to themselves or if they really are just too far gone?

    They know they are going up their own a*se - they don't want to accept the need for rational, critical, and open thinking. That would then lead to introducing 'new' ideas such as looking after their neighbour, looking after the environment, and helping the next generation. 

    Far easier to be a selfish c***, eh?

     

  13. Go-Ahead hits the buffers as it scrambles to calculate fallout from Southeastern scandal

     

    Shares in transport operator Go-Ahead have plunged as it scrambles to calculate the fallout from "serious errors" which led to it being stripped of the Southeastern rail franchise.

    The group lost a quarter of its value after revealing that it would have to suspend its shares soon because counting the cost of the scandal will mean it misses a deadline to publish results.
