  1. Read something today that said something about buildings out of favour with real businesses can be turned into gyms!
  2. " A combative Jeremy Corbyn has said he welcomes the tough byelections triggered by the resignations of two Labour MPs as an opportunity to challenge the government.

  3. Friend sold her house really quickly with them. Seen their sign at another couple of places.
  4. They interecept them at the bank. Just as making cars more secure has meant less cars nicked by people breaking in and hotwiring them, the theft of keys from houses is rife.
  5. Easy: 10x the lowest wage paid to abnyone outsourced by any company. Therefore anyone who uses sweatshop labour would also be a bit embarrassed in the wages department.
  6. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-38568116 Would they cap council wages and pensions?
  7. So only from a bit of the money. I think a resignation in this sort of circs should be from the entire job.
  8. Anything other than CI basic isn't going to change a thing. If there's a way to get more money for doing nothing people will have a bloody good go at getting it.
  9. Buy-to-let mortgage rates are expected to fall in 2017 for ordinary landlords with one or two properties, but get more expensive for professionals with larger portfolios, according to a leading mortgage broker. https://www.landlordtoday.co.uk/breaking-news/2017/1/buy-to-let-mortgage-rates-set-to-fall

  11. So then its not citizens income, its to fooked up already.
  12. It's unsecured debt. So they can just write it off and start again. That's what the economy needs. If you're not getting into debt to boost the economy then you are the enemy.
  13. Cash flow is the main reason. And I assume not realising quite how much the tax man wants and that he doesn't want it when you earn it but at some point in the future. I suspect a lot of people don't have the will power to not spend it all.
  14. From the original link: Residents on a new development in Beverley, East Yorkshire, for example, are subject to a covenant banning them from hanging out the washing or airing clean clothes outdoors.
  15. Only if CI is kept as a simple CI and no top up HB or disability stuff. If you need a wheelchair then you should have a wheelchair. If you need a carer you should have a carer. That might mean not living quite the same life as people do now though. The only sensible way to provide mass care for people is to put them closer together in supported living. Whilst it's ok for old people to be put into sheltered housing I'm not sure young disabled people would feel the same.
  16. That giving people the actual help they need is better than giving them money. And that stupid people should probably be locked up and looked after by the state.
  17. I think you've not met enough dolites and long term sickies. The current benefits system doesn't encourage people to better themselves. CI might, but at the expense of anyone who is working minimum wage at the moment and paying very little in the way of tax.
  18. The complications arise with people who currently get a shiny new car every three years and other categories of people who currently rake in shedloads.
