  1. Wrong people right people doesnt that depend on what group you think your in ? Be careful what you wish for or you may find only blonde blue eyed are allowed to breed
  2. So you belive that lot are different ? perhaps your not old enougth to remember last time ................and before you ask I dont have a clue who can sort this mess out myself voting for the Monster Raving lot i next time just to register my view of the rest of them.
  3. In the real world of Engineering one segment failing can and does bring the other bits down as well hence why we have few manufacturing jobs left in this country. Banks are no different in my view and we should have let them crash and burn setting up a new govt funed bank in their place.
  4. If anyone else does it your now the top result on google !
  5. That’s how it works in my business (manufacturing) in fact if I am really lucky and the whole business exceed all expectations I may get £2000. before tax NI and pension. so these people need to get real and get there noses out the trough. Of course if you just a worker not a manager you get sweet FA so these people are even less likley to support bonuses for anyone.
  6. Just remember that employment agencies are run by people who didn’t have sufficient morals to be come estate agents

  8. I have a few hundred in this just to test the water very happy until xmas when I noticed that I have 4 late payers all of a sudden not sure if this is a normal issue at this time of year or the start of something worse but I have held fire putting any more money in for a time. If you are going to use your STR fund in here remember that you have to wait to get your money back 12 24 48 or 60 months so its a long term commitment. but you can choose. listings are fun but loads riskier I belive Process and software seem to be reliable though.
  9. I cant see it will make stuff all difference ive been around for almost 50 years now and it seems to me that all of our politicians are as incompetent and corrupt as each other. As soon as they get into power its "noses in" time for the greedy sods. So I don’t know who to vote for but the raving loony’s are at least honest about it http://www.omrlp.com/ edit was the smile didnt work.....
  10. I agree a sudden attack on the Iranian nuclear plants by Israel alone but using some brand new US technology a vote in the un condemns this action but US abstains. Nuclear program set back years no major diplomatic fall out. Not sure on the timescale though
  11. Dont think anyone else has posted this yet. TOKYO (AFP) — Japanese production fell at the fastest rate on record in November as firms closed factories and cut jobs due to slumping demand brought on by the global economic crisis, according to data out Friday. The government also said another 100,000 people were out of work compared with a year earlier and that more were set to lose their jobs as firms axe employees on temporary contracts. Industrial output in the world's second biggest economy plunged a record 8.1 percent in November from the previous month, the biggest drop since the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry began releasing the statistics in 1953. It was much worse than market forecasts of a 6.7 percent fall. Kaoru Yosano, the economy minister, warned that it was difficult to see when Japan would break out of its recession. "The public, business people and politicians, we all must give our all so that the economy would not nosedive even below its lowest point," Yosano said. Prime Minister Taro Aso vowed to press parliament to enact a record-high budget unveiled this week by his government, which covers tax cuts, cash rebates and other measures aimed at stimulating the economy. "Japan should be the first country to get out of recession. We will lead the initiative," Aso told a meeting of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party. But production was likely to continue falling, with the industry ministry expecting an 8.0 percent drop in December and another 2.1 percent decline in January, as the auto industry feels the pinch. Some of Japan's best known manufacturers, including Toyota Motor Corp., Sony Corp. and Canon Inc., have lowered production and cut jobs to adjust to the fall in demand for their exports. "We have been seeing economic data and forecasts downgraded every month," said Hiroshi Watanabe, economist at Daiwa Research Institute. "From now on, I expect the weak exports will lead to a serious inventory adjustment. Shipments are weak, increasing the inventory. This in turn again lowers production," he said. Japan relies on exports as the key driver of its economic growth, but overseas-bound shipments also fell at their fastest-ever rate in November. Japan is bearing the brunt of weak demand around the world, said Takeshi Minami, chief economist at Norinchukin Research Institute. The Bank of Japan, which last week cut its key rate to just 0.1 percent, "will probably face more calls for further monetary easing," Minami told Dow Jones Newswires. Unemployment rose to 3.9 percent in November, up 0.2 percentage points from the previous month, the internal affairs ministry said Friday. The figure was slightly below average market forecasts of 4.0 percent. The number of people out of work increased by 100,000 from a year earlier to a total of 2.56 million. The ratio of job offers to job seekers also fell to 0.76, meaning 76 jobs are available to 100 job seekers. The job cuts have targeted mainly people on limited-term contracts or those who were recruited from temp agencies. The labour ministry said a total of 85,012 temporary workers have already lost their jobs or know they will be laid off by March -- a figure that has nearly trebled in a month. "We expect the figure to rise even further towards the year-end and the end of the fiscal year" in March, a labour ministry official said. The yen came under pressure in Asian trade after the gloomy figures. However, Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei index rose 1.63 percent to a six-week high on bargain-hunting in thin holiday trade. In other data, Japan said that core consumer prices rose 1.0 percent in November from a year earlier. But prices eased by 0.8 percent from the previous month on lower energy prices, leading to concern that Japan may be relapsing into its decade-old scourge of growth-sapping deflation. Consumer prices have been rising for more than a year, but most of the growth has been due to high energy and food prices. http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/artic...HsS4Ot9Y1Tw2JlQ
