  1. It’s not a fact though is it ? Just an anonymous piece of anecdotal posting on an Internet forum
  2. But millions can’t afford to live like they are now emotionally, physically or financially Your position appears to be they are not as intelligent as remainers, by the same token many vocal remainers especially the Islington and West London mob seem to have the lowest EQ I have seen in a lifetime - Their inability to understand what drove millions to vote leave is quite breath taking considering they would label themselves as well read and intelligent
  3. Why? The UK driving test is pretty good. I don’t need an IDP in the US - is it because they are the most powerful country in the world and have a healthy dislike for pointless bureaucracy?
  4. Remain has also become a cult only the ‘intelligent ‘ voted Remain be good children and trust Mother she knows best. And you appear to be part of it with your last line There are plenty of rational intelligent people who voted leave and plenty of dumb ignorant people who voted remain The continued generalisations, binary position taking and insults from both sides are not going to move us forward
  5. Think your missing the point - there is no real competition for the big money stuff - the BT solution works but only they can offer because under the skin they still own the majority of the infrastructure I would sort of be with BT when they are dismissive of amateur geeks saving 2 Bob here and 2 bob there - your not buying a product your buying an end to end service - spent thirty years of my life dealing with people who approach me socially to show off their geek knowledge which normally amounts to what you just said no offence ?? I doubt whether they want the retail business anyway
  6. Actually where it counts commercial data lines where the real money is BT still has a stranglehold ie if you want True diversity with a planned and certified route through two different physical locations then the only provider is BT
  7. It’s fundamental not binary - within reason I can choose not to deal with those corporations, people can move jobs or relinquish their shares When that is not easy ie utilities they should be in public control - but rightly so if it is supported by our money then the rigour with which governance is applied should be of the highest standard You don’t actually have to apply the same rigour to most private enterprises because they can always fail but the truth is in spite of all the stuff that you mention they deliver good value to the consumer and shareholder returns By all means hold an ideological view but in truth the vast majority of the public don’t care as long as the service or product is perceived by them to be of value
  8. Ideal for you - I can find far more productive ways to use that amount of money 1. Investing in myself through my businesses 2. Enjoying life in my peak years say 30-60 3. Getting my children privately educated so no uni debt by age 25 or earlier through their career success 4. Helping them into property modestly so they were both properly owners in their mid twenties - so no need for financial support from us here onwards I have lived and earnt my own money since I was 29 when I was last employed by someone nearly 30 years ago - can turn a buck in virtually any service field if I need to Of course you need a cushion but 2 years outside a pension/retirement savings seems excessive - so just saying ideal for you not everyone
  9. Aren’t you missing the point ? It’s not my money they can do what they want - with very few exceptions I have a choice - I can’t for instance change my council easily
  10. That’s my shark theory - look at a shark swimming around do they worry about the weather up top ? Nope they concentrate on being the best shark they can be
  11. 90% + of same DNA, ethnicity, language culture and values makes for a better outcome in education whatever the resources ....you don’t say ??
  12. It’s a gift and I agree but your not brain washed neither are your kids ?
  13. Oh I did that’s why I have created loads of jobs and even now employ apprentices who wouldn’t get a break anywhere else the poor can’t help the poor..... my generation wanted change and we achieved it, essex boys making six figure salaries instead of three generation blue blood, public school boys, Opening to another level recruitment, IT, the law from us wrong side of the tracks from comprehensive school kids Not sure what generation you are but if you are a late boomer we broke the mould - this generation if anything is supine and really not making a difference
  14. So do I and so did my old man so my questions stands why does that amaze you ? Don’t you ? Just joshing but your obviously a good man I would guess they would come out well ??
