  1. @octopus, you isn't too world is it? I think there are very very few cultures in the world that are truly "hostile" as you so call it. Most human beings do not like being hostile to each other and thus like to form non-hostile societys at least at the community level. What hostile culture you is on about, you isn't talking about muslims are you?
  2. when I read that story I want to cry, not sadness but tears of anger. that is just about everything which tells us how fcked we is as a country. I just get my head around the jaw drop sense of entitlement here, ok she had bad times and somebpdy fcked up somewhere, but all around the world bigger injustice happens every second. what is stuck up her ar$e so much that she thinks she deserves we pay her £20m, please somebody tell me now before I put a hole in this wall here with me fist. £20m could literally save about 1000 people's lives. ok I made that figure up but you understand me don't you?!
  3. @aa3, sometimes I actuallyy thnk that people are confused about democracy. what tthey really like about living in democratic societies is not the democracy itself but the "rule of law" that often accompanies. now if you have a fair and just rule of law without democracy, I think people will be just as happy.
  4. please can I have some of what you lot are on here. there is absolutely nothing positive about the housing bubble, its the fcking cancerous tumour on society.
  5. like I said it before, we find ourselves in a screwed/screwed situation. those of us with a bit of cash ready to buy when the hpc comes might get shafted if they keep their foot on interest rates neck. the cash pile in the bank is going weimar. there is an inflexion point as always. there are two pains you have, one is pain of waiting for hpc, the other pain is pain of regret if after you buy the hpc then comes. you buy when the first pain gets to conquer the second.
  6. I know its bad, but I think peeps think that change is all about voting for the opposition party at the next election. peeps don't know or are thick to realise it that it don't really matter, the main parties policies are about the same when we talk about policies that really matter. also, people are too selfish I notice in general. when I is about and out on the public transport I see all sorts of evidences that tell me that peple are fcking selfish. on of my big gripe is that people dont give sh1t about moving down the carriage to let people on the train. just small example you say but it a
  7. @wonderpup, its clear to me you is a clever bloke. I just wanted to say some things. China is not a free market nor is it 100% capitalistic. there is heavy state control in many areas, especially investment intensive industry like oil and also banks. I suppose best comparison of similar size was soviet union. they was unlucky, if they had lasted just a decade more, they might have benefited from globalisation and new technologies. Internet and widespread TV is great for propaganda if controlled properly. I don't ever before has there been such great number of people exposed to the same propaga
  8. @wonderpup, if the communists screw up, then the people will have to go for revolution, the same way each dynasty has ended in history. no two ways about it. the mandate of heaven has to be won in battle. look, I'm no politicist, I just use my common sense. If you have a person or group of people who have certain attributes=> nationalistic, they put own country, people, organisations first. If foreign powers can help then we can be friends, others fck u; pragmatic, if things screw up, don't be too scared to change path and do painful things (eg u got deficit, sort it the fck out, not puss
  9. ok, maybe 10% is for us "contractors", aye You can double the 10% figure to 20% in me post then if you is then happy about it. Now cans we talk?
  10. Hmmm, feel ya pain op. hpc is a biyatch, torn between logic and emotion. If you are hoping for hpc, then you are betting that the gubmint can't keep interest rates near zero longer than you have a life changing event. by now it is obvious to hpc die hards and thickos like me that this is the long game, let the interest rates sort out the massive mortgage debt in time and screwed you if you have the cash.
  11. I still maintain that come 2150, London is megacity 1 of 1 in the UK. Everything else will be chasing after rats. I come from up North too many moons ago. Best decision I ever made coming down here.
  12. guy, woz about HK and Singapore then. They don't look like falling apart now.
  13. I believe it is should be the sworn duty of every citizen to avoid paying as much tax as legally allowed for the benefit of their families and to avoid the misallocation of society resouces, until the tax rate drops to about a reasonable 10% that is (cf before WW1) then after which all you thieving bar stewards pay the tax man damnyou.
  14. I is amazed, lurking for a long time and this is first thing banner has said that I completely agree with. Winston Churchill was wrong about democracy innit. The best form of gubmint is benevelent dictatorship. You got a problem with that, you go talk to the Christians or Muslims.
  15. Look I am a thick as pigshit when it comes to big economics but even I can see there are some good things happening in China which we could do well to pay respect to. Seems like there is lot of haters here who would rub hands if China was to have crash of sorts. Don't know if this is ignorance, hatred or racism but I have some points to say which I believe the miracle might go on for longer than the haters can keep posting. First off which somebody has mentioned already, the GDP per capita is low in China, I think they about 100 down the league table so they are still growing from a small bas
