  1. How would you feel if somebody said something so offensive about the italians. I remember you said your wife was Italian, and I want you to think how you would feel.
  2. I thought abbey wood was renamed the Olympic village in 2012, or was that thamesmead!
  3. Didn't tongue come in a tin, I was always horrified at how it looked. Spam fritters were to die for, and chicken hearts too!
  4. Totally agree with your post. i have a feeling gov policy is to continue the devaluation, if our pots, cups, plates and other manufactured goods are going to compete with those from India on cost after brexit, the £ needs to fall much further - parity with the rupee by 2020!
  5. Look, you influence many here on the foamy mouth side, and you are aware that FOM actually isn't that bad. It doesn't stop the uk providing health care for all its citizens, that is a political decision, it doesn't stop the creation of social housing, that is a political decision, it doesn't stop the provision of school places, that is a political decision, it doesn't create the requirement to pay for university education, that is a political decision, it doesn't cause higher public transport costs, that is a political decision etc - yet still you pedal an argument that raises the tempreture of the easily inflamed. Why do you do it? We do know that migration encourages economic growth, which is critical to providing the services the public need, no growth means no increase in living standards, means poorer health care, means lower pensions, means less public investment etc. the only negative evidence on here of FOM comes from spyguy who is convinced that migrants are responsible for everything from teenage pregnancy, car crashes to an increase in wasps. For your information this is not the case, some facts can be found at https://www.indy100.com/article/how-immigrants-benefit-the-economy-in-four-simple-charts-7318361 Worse still, is the absolute ****** everyone spouts about economics on here, I have never heard house price or market predictions so poor or as out of kilter as on here, seriously! Yet they are never challenged, not once. Nobody mentions that spunko wrongly predicted a dozen stock market crashes, nobody mentions that cantbuywontbuy hasn't the faintest understanding of international liquidity (or anything else) yet you all still compliment each other on statements that hold little value or relevance - the majestic wine thread being a case in point. Anyway, I am bored of this forum, I don't rate the contributors and I doubt very much anyone other than yourselves are interested in what you have to say. The only thing I have learnt is how bitter, insular, racist, envious and nasty some small sectors of the English public are (also that Australian migrants to Britain are even worse). This is of course my last post - please feel free to leave insults.
  6. I actually fully agree with you! How unsettling for us both ?. German, Austrian and French nationalism is very much on the rise, so and chance of a successful uk exit has to be minimised, after all if uk hasn't got to play by the full rules, why would anyone else. So the eu must make our exit difficult, unless we accept FOM (which I have no problem with), we will loose our trade concessions. The Irish border agreement goes back to the 1920s and the last but one lib con government (another disaster), and if Ireland retains its FOM, well the northern Irish issue for the uk may well be resolved once and for all in a free vote - personally I support Irish unification so that's all for the good.
  7. I do the same, but if you were buying a new car, or second hand one, you might well need to save first or borrow. Running budget surpluses is unacceptable to the public, tax cuts demanded, so you have to borrow. Now you will have your own opinion about HS2, nuclear weapon and a new runway, as have I, but you simply cannot pay for things such as this on a monthly basis, particularly when the "benefits" are calculated in decades. As long as you don't borrow too much, no problem.
  8. Well that is too simplistic in its thinking - borrowing bad, saving good. Sometimes we run budget surpluses, and sometimes we don't, no big deal. The total national debt is easily handled at present, and if you are investing in massive national infrastructure projects, of course you need to borrow. The funny thing is that due to the paranoia of the public and to enable politicians to pretend to be prudent, rather than borrow to build power stations so as to avoid the cost appearing on our balance sheets, we get the Chinese and French to pay for them - that really is selling out the next few generations who really won't get cheap energy bills. If you really wanted to cut the national debt substantially, you'd just abandon nuclear weapons.
  9. Interest payments on the national debt are actually pretty small in the scheme of things http://www.ukpublicspending.co.uk/uk_total_spending_pie_chart
  10. I think you make some good points. Interestingly, I think there are fewer than 150k refugees in the whole of the U.K. Now undoubtedly there is a bit of an issue in mainland Europe, there isn't one in the uk or in the whole island of Ireland.
  11. I think he is talking about America, between you and me, that is a different county.
  12. What would you feed them? I know that refugees only eat finest steaks at present.
  13. This game sounds fun! Can I play? So the rules are, as I seem to understand them, make up a fantasy number of people who want to come to the uk, discriminate against some of them - dividing them in to the worthy and not worthy, complain that they "took our jobs", suggest they only came to be on job seekers allowance and build a big concentration camp for anyone who is unfortunate enough to be a refugee! What's not to like!!!!!!! I want to be the racist northern builder character, no the grumpy old man who hates foreign speak, I wanna be him - well as long as the counter isn't black or polish. It's the fantasy board game that just keeps giving. Canbuywontbuy, I have tried to like you, I really have, but what the ****** have you got against migrants who aren't from Australia? What is it that makes you so mad? Yeah, bloody refugees in fear of their lives, being all needy. Ok define a refugee, and why your definition is more appropriate than that exists currently.
  14. I think you live in Thailand now, so you are a double migrant - a king amongst migrants!
  15. What are you not sure about? Give us a clue, then I will do my best. remember what the post was about mind, don't get confused!
  16. I thought you were being ironic in that question, how funny. Re read that thread, you misunderstood the conversation. It's about trust between ministers and the administration, that is so funny! Seriously, read it again, if your still not sure I will explain in simple terms.
  17. Many migrants couldn't vote, in fact all the hard working eu ones. Read my previous posts, there are no economic pressures in the uk, simply a lack of will to actually use tax and the state to correct market failures.I have no desire to trawl through your friends posts but I seem to remember him being outraged that foreign people took minimum paid jobs then left the country after earning the vast wages avaiable in doing so. I don't mind such behaviour. Can I ask, where were you born my friend?
  18. Nope, that is not the case. I pointed out that as a migrant he shouldn't object to migrants, very different.
  19. Do you know, I have thought long and hard before responding. I would first apologise if I have offended you in anyway. I think in part it is because you are clearly intelligent and I have learnt from your posts, that passionate posts have happened. The issue for me is that you, as an intelligent person, have the power to legitimise some of the less pleasant opinions posted on here. Your british comment set off a lot of anti-polish rubbish straight after, and for me, considering how your influence affects others is something you should think about before posting.Brexit will happen, and those who believed differently have to accept that, you are an intelligent exit supporter, but by identifying non-Brits as second class citizens you legitimise some very nasty opinions and the comments that follow. Now I don't think you have issues with any migrant group, I could be wrong, but you need to point out when posts are unacceptable when those that follow you make unacceptable comments. personally, i like baubles, I have plenty. I like happiness, I have that too. I cannot abide targeting a group of people for no reason such as where they were born.
  20. You are entirely correct in what you say, the production of money cuts its real value. That said, how you use money is key. What has been done of late is simply to boost money supply pushing up non-productive asset prices - but I was not talking about money printing. I was saying that the uk has a huge amount of wealth which can be taxed to pay for pensions and benefits. The argument that the uk is bankrupt is a fallacy. The argument that the wealthy are so horrified at paying tax they will live on the moon to avoid it is also false. If you let the wealthy live in tax havens of course they will, but again that is a policy choice of government. To bring this back to my original point, the U.K. Is extraordinarily wealthy, and you do not need to worry to much that we have a bit on our credit card at present, and you certainly don't need to impoverish people so that the wealthiest here can afford another skiing holiday.
