  1. It always seemed strange to me that people that were in a couple got less than people who were single. It does seem fair that this has been corrected so that two people in a couple will get the same as two single people.
  2. Osborne went to St Pauls. Nick Clegg went to Westminster.
  3. It is implied clearly from your statement. But you have just avoided answering the point.
  4. Exactly. She may not abuse it - lets face it an octogenarian wouldnt want to rock the boat too much (though you might see Prince Andrew with a few more perks and some of the Queen's grandkids in powerful positions). However, would Charles be so noble? William? What would happen to Republicans? Only when monarchs were not given absolute power did the lot of the average person improve. The suggestion of the monarch as dictator would move us back to the days of the aristocratic overlords.

  7. So you think just that people are in a couple, they should only get half as much individual tax allowances per person as a single person? Screwed up thinking there.
  8. Think most traders will be planning their night out instead of sending orders. If we get bad news about the cliff, then I would expect strongest response on wednesday.
  9. Seems dodgy - they are looking for mugs. In a genuine sale, you would have to do some hard bargaining to make 9% gross, which in student accommodation would be around 5% gross, and 9.5% net would be impossible. I saw adverts similar to this offering developments in Bulgaria, Latvia etc back in 2006....
  10. I dont understand why they all have to be chinese/ thai massage parlours. Are non - asian women not capable of giving massages?
  11. He was frustrated with high house prices so built his own and many more for other people, enabling many to own their own homes. While people may complain about the style of housing, they still sold in large numbers and he followed consumer demand. We could do with people like him starting building companies now, though the problem is still on the planning side. RIP
  12. 2000 per month on booze/ going out!! Going out say 2 times a week would mean 250 quid per night. I assume you either have a drugs habit or regularly visit strip club as that is huge. Cut the habit and you could have 50k saved up after 2 years.
  13. Mortgage rates to stay low due to QE. Rents to creep higher due to more immigrants wanting to live in our limited housing stock. House prices to stay about the same as the standoff continues Food and oil to get a bit more expensive. Successful can kicking in the Eurozone leading to slightly higher equity prices and the Euro getting stronger versus the Pound.
  14. The super rich, politicians, bankers and media are all in London. Therefore, the rest of the UK does not matter.
  15. Now it is the Queen attending one meeting out of interest. When Charles gets his turn, Im sure he will be attending them all, and making his opinions known at all of them.
  16. Now if only we knew what was causing the price of gas to go up. It just seems as though the pound does not buy what it used to..... Must be those greedy energy companies to blame.
  17. The sad thing is that the NHS is always short of money, and then 2 million gets spent on something like this. It could have been put to use treating lots and lots of patients, or even funding new medical research.
  18. You should learn skills so you are productive enough to get a job by yourself. It is a global world out there. So no, I dont want to pay your bus fare because you haven't made yourself employable. I cant afford to travel around all day on buses and dont think that I should pay for anyone else to do it.
  19. Why not give the workers something for nothing while we are at it? Oh no we cant have that - they can only use what they can afford. They are the slaves that have to toil to keep the others in the manner they have become accustomed.
  20. There will be even less incentive to go back to work if you add free travel to the things those on benefits already get for free.
  21. Aristocrat troughers normally feed at the Common Agricultural payments trough so is interesting to see them branching out into other areas of troughing.
  22. Someone who has started a racist organisation that only allows blacks to join would have a vested interest in exaggerating claims of discrimination against her. After all, it is this claim that gets her onto the bbc website. As an analogy, the BNP makes a lot of exaggerated claims about problems facing whites.
