  1. i want the job of cracking the whip,or poking them with a big stick ! seriously though maybe we could do what the Romans did and have an enormous hole in the ground,chain hundreds of "slaves" together and chuck the first one down !!! that'll keep the numbers down,but keep a few to clean Osborne's bog !

  3. even the word welfare is an Americanisam,what ever happened to social security ? the tory toffs want us back in the Dickensian type of society,and average earners are cheering them on what happens when they need that safety net ? why are we always pointed towards the USA as goal ? people are seriously deluded if they think the tories give a sh1te about us,they like to preach about austerity while they have their noses in the trough .........
  4. how about this,i've heard that the pethouse is going on the market at £3.2M ! http://www.golfblogger.co.uk/post/kohler-company-has-announced-official-development-plans-for-hamilton-grand-st-andrews-f62 There will be a total of 26 private residences ranging from two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments, including a penthouse with expansive 360-degree views and a private balcony. Prices for the residences start at £1.35 million for 99 year leases
  5. they also got a free advert on STV news at 6pm last night ! http://player.stv.tv/programmes/news-at-six-glasgow-west/2011-10-17-1800/ if you can be bothered sitting through 2 minutes of adverts,it's about half way into programme.
  6. someone who works for poundland says they automatically bin applications from people with qualifications ! best not to mention them then .
  7. http://www.scotsman.com/the-scotsman/scotland/bought_for_2_2m_yours_for_750k_the_house_that_s_lost_1_309_a_day_1_1914099 IT WAS one of the most expensive properties in Scotland when it sold for a massive £2.2 million. Now the owners of mansion house estate Strathgarry House have proved it is possible to shave two-thirds off the value of a home in just three years – by gutting it and then putting it back on the market. The ten-bedroom Victorian property near Killiecrankie – which has salmon fishing pools at the bottom of the garden and boasts grounds totalling 23 acres, a 19th-century walled garden and a private tennis court – has been put up for sale at offers over £750,000. That is £1.45m less than its sale price of three years ago, meaning it has lost £1,308 a day since its previous purchase.
  8. quite unbelievable that they paid top whack for abn amro (http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2007/oct/07/money1) . fred even insisted that they go ahead and use RBS reserves to pay for it & to skip "due dilligence" !
  9. WTF are benifits ? surely you mean BENEFITS !!!?
  10. this will help pay for irelands social security payments Osborne has found £7B down the back of the sofa ! What Britain will contribute: - €3.8bn in loans - Another €3.1bn from the EU bailout fund http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/Ireland-bailout-main-points-tele-3529044668.html;_ylt=An2Mqek0DdxfYODztgGP0CLSr7FG;_ylu=X3oDMTE4dGE3amJnBHBvcwMzBHNlYwN5ZmlUb3BTdG9yaWVzBHNsawNpcmVsYW5kYmFpbG8-?x=0
  11. wasn't this meant to come in in october 2010 originally ? then put off to 2011 and now 2012 and this looney IDS's Universal Credit thingy hasn't a chance of being introduced in 2013 (or if it does it will just be JSA with a new even more silly name) it's taken over ten years for tax credits to be integrated,and some families are still paid through income support-though all child payments are meant to come from Child Tax Credits... i notice the Fib Dems are on 9% in the latest you gov poll
  12. oh dear,sorry to p1ss on your parade,but,this family will be exempt from the total cap on benefits as someone in the household is on DLA. the only cap that might apply is the cap on HB,but as they live in bristol i doubt they pay over £500 a week in rent. looks like they just rehashed the story without even checking the details ! i can't see these plans getting through the Child Poverty law anyway - it's just headlines to get the rabid right cheering from their chelsea townhouses....
  13. i remember reading this in books at school in the 70s,i also read that a new ice age was just round the corner i'm still waiting for delivery of my personal hovercraft anyway our great leader (alex salmond) said there's about 150 years worth in the north sea !
  14. isn't there a shortage of maths teachers? they could get a golden hello of £5,000 each !!
  15. i was watching this and the wife came in the room and said "not more politics" then walked out !
  16. WTF ! they obviously own land and property in Afghanistan.i thought you were denied council tax and housing benefit if you had cash or property over £16k.
  17. what will happen to purnell's brainwave of abolishing income support and shifting everyone onto job seekers allowance? will it be quietly abandoned?
