  1. I saw that programme. Fascinating unwitting insight into the government's full retard 'green' sustainable energy charade. It was quite cool the way they lifted that little bulldozer into the hold of the bulk carrier and drove it around on top of the pellets though.
  2. It's a ceremonial role with as much clout on policy as a town crier.
  3. The thing is a lot of jobs tend to be more susceptible to knock-on changes in behaviour, caused by automation. Sales reps haven't been replaced by a robot buzzing round with a pilot case full of samples, instead, businesses just order online. Similarly with book-keepers. Technology won't so much directly replace their work but rather never generate the paper invoices, that underpin their work, in the first place.
  4. Say leaving results in economic catastrophe in the UK and it's all presented as a terrible mistake. The EU magnaminously offers us the olive branch of rejoining on the condition we go all in taking the Euro as well. Also in the aftermath of the EU referendum there's a referendum and Scotland leave. Ireland has a referendum and goes for reunification. In the above scenario you've got Britain in the Euro and Great Britain broken into administrative provinces of the EU superstate. If you're a scheming globalist suddenly the idea of having a referendum on the EU, in Britain, you lose looks like a great idea.
  5. Who knows.......maybe he wasn't even the first willing front man.
  6. Prior to 2008 they were very concerned about the effect any new leases granted would have, in terms of evidence at review, for other nearby properties. There is a general acceptance that the days of seeing significant, or any, uplift at five yearly review are long gone. If the landlord's finances can withstand it they will grant new long leases at lower rents to quality tenants with good covenant strength if they've had a few flakier tenants come and go. Most of these retailers disappearing is less about rudderless mismanagement, although it may have been rife, and more like the removal of BT phones boxes. Yes, you could maybe have done something better or more interesting with them but in many cases they are simply obsolete.
  7. Probably a constant battle to avoid morbid obesity, like their father John, too.
  8. I always feel quite a few female aussie celebs might be todger dodgers.
  9. But they're ripping of BTL landlords. Quite the HPC Moral Maze.
  10. I would think the number of times HMRC goes back to doublecheck with the company that issued an invoice, unless some sort of big time carousel type fraud, is vanishingly small. The current mad hybrid of a paper and electronic accouting world is massively open to abuse. Most invoices are on plain white copier paper in B&W, rather than coloured logo headed paper produced by a printing company. HMRC have virtually no way of telling if the document is original or printed, in an edited version, the day before. In fact, I bet in the majority of cases they investigate they just say email a PDF across. They urgently need some central website where all B2B or allowable expense invoices are processed through so if you are paying for something you want to claim you have to provide a VAT or UTR number and the vendor's invoice goes on your central account. I suspect the main thing holding this back is a lack of imagination of what new non-jobs to create for the legions or redundant accountancy workers and assorted spreadsheet botherers the current system keeps occupied. Another reason, I believe, is the state likes little form-filing tests that demand civil obedience and the fear of tax investigations.
  11. Just sounds like a verbose version of 'my house is my pension' and here's a few hundred words on me convincing myself I'm right.
  12. My anecdotal observation has been the fizzy pop aisle of the supermarkets doesn't seem to see nearly as much activity as, say, ten years ago.
  13. Have you created and occupied the position of official forum troll?
