  1. the reality is the 10 wealthiest countries on the planet have populations of less than 10 million, the further reality is syriza are in a good position, they have patriotism on their side, the 3 biggest greek creditors are. Eurosystem SMP 45Bn EU 38Bn Greek public sector 30Bn Fortunately they can ignore the EU and wipe 80Bn of their debt simply by defaulting on the oligarchs who agree to shared responsibility *the greek public sector and greek banks, the greek deposit holders and public sector stand firmly behind redistribution... apparently
  2. Leeds City Council has half the cashflow of Serco, perhaps they should be paying their CEO 1 million, to keep it consistent like
  3. i suppose given tax credits and Housing Benefit its almost cost neutral for the taxpayer as anyone on minimum wage will be receiving support. But its not cost neutral for business. The sensible thing would be to reduce employers NI in line with the increase to neutralise it for business aswell but as Employers NI is generally a hiiden tax on tax on Labour that very few recognise theres chuff all chance of the govt reducing it. To be fair to the coalition, i dont see how this increase is any more beneficial than increasing the tax threshhold, fortunately the popn are generally so driven by their ideology of left and right that soundbites are all politicians have to come up with, the logical and inevitable follow through of those soundbites are pretty irrelevant when the population cares about nothing more than dogma
  4. yep what a disaster, debt monkeys get to vote, lets all leave it up to the queen, at least she has vaginal superiority, GB used to be an empire, it can get back there as long as im alright jack and someone else is paying for it, the problem i have with house prices is im in the wrong side of it, special flowerism is great as long as i dont suffer the indignity of it
  5. does this mean there'll be less fat Bstards in the uk? My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my child benefit, you wupped my father at 10 ball, prepare to eat kebabs
  6. Id say share certificates are a very bad example and diametric to phone company payment systems. The majority of people dont buy share certificates, they are about as popular as black and white TVs, they purchase through nominee accounts and give up most of their rights as a shareholder (either stupid in giving up ownership, or smart in simplifying the process depending on your POV). Personally id rather have the certificates if im risking proverbial sweat and tears but i realise im in the minority
  7. very difficult to generate an increase in earnings (aka labour) when it is taxed (employer/employee ni, income tax) when it is taxed behaviourally as a scarce commodity when patently for a couple of generations its clearly an abundant commodity Tax has 2 functions Firstly it is a way of funding the state, but more importantly its a behavioural determinant Taxation globally to greater and lesser extents have in this cycle been collected on a surplus as if its a scarcity (and people scratch their heads why the surplus has remained for 50 years) Meanwhile theres the very existence of this site wondering why Land speculation captures all investment when it is taxed at the square root of fck all 20bn Council tax +4Bn stampduty minus 25 Bn H Benefit. Fantastically the govt has driven all tax and investment behaviour into land speculation whilst penalising labour speculation and this site wonders (blaming left or right whatever they are) why theres been generational underinvestment in Labour (aka unemployment) and generational over investment in land speculation (aka houseprices)
  8. All power centres are tainted by power vacuums, how many millenia of recorded history are needed to recognise this, the tories,labour,UKIP,BNP, etc etc arent unique, they are simply taking advantage of of power mandated to them. I saw an article recently on here saying down liblabcon, destroy them and let new parties (read power vacuums) rise up, the problem isnt MPs, its human nature If tomorrow UKIP & the greens get 90% of the vote are there seriously enough people in the UK that wouldnt recognise the same career politicians theyve supposedly voted out wouldnt be in the parties theyve voted in, The issue is millenia old, power vacuums, it would be completely unnatural (as history highlights) not to take advantage of that vacuum to ensure personal security Fortunately humanity are so into the concept of special flowers that not having them seems unnatural
  9. Kerching, hubris, you have no idea whether it will it not, Recent History says it will, Longer term beyond "being a legend in our lunchtime" says there is no cast iron reason to believe so, Asia, Mesopotamia, Africa have all had their time in the sun at various points in History, i suggest you stop living in your own lunch time and deal with actual reality of the past, The west may be more prosperous than ever in 30 years, it might also be in a dark age, it might also be somewhere between, thats the reality of its history, your hubris and entitlement wont change either of those outcomes, your entitlement merely highlights how fortunate youve been to have been born in the place you were when you were "historically", its become assumed, thats hubris, decadence, entitlement, call it what you will, it may continue or not, clearly if it doesnt you should be the last to complain because you bought into the same assumption as your leaders
  10. Yeah ok http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/19/world/europe/19ireland.html?_r=0 and people wonder why humanity and its foibles of hubris and overstated depression hasnt changed in a few thousand years. No matter how big the fairytale, today is all that matters tomorrow is irrelevant because i have no concept of history innit, even if it was yesterday TheUK could have a population of 100m in 2030, it could also have a popn of 50m, thats the reality of accepting that we may not be legends out of our own lunchtime
