  1. There used to be a very good alternative to hpc called *********************.co.uk - it was set up by a former member who was fed up when FUBAR took over this site. Most of the decent posters migrated to it but unfortunately it no longer exists. Other dissatisfied members went over to GreenEnergyInvestors. Wow! FUBAR still censor its URL (which was basically the same as this one but with 'global' in front of it).
  2. I wonder if any money from the sales did go back into social housing - that's what should have happened.
  3. My parents used RTB in the 80's and still live in the same house along with many other families around them. There has been one instance of a more recent tennant using RTB for BTL - legally because the timescales are way too short. You should only be allowed the RTB after a substantial number of years at the property and then there should be a 15 year sale/rent clause after that.
  4. Then would it not be common sense to state that we are committed to a reciprocal arrangement and leave it at that until negotiations start. Edit: It would be shabby to do anything over than that and very shabby to do something that would jeopardise the lives of 1.5m UK citizens.
  5. Get this into your head, 'Ordinary' people are the broad spectrum of society. You constantly talk about binmen, milkmen, etc.. you get pulled up on it and you harp on even more about wanting only a small group of people controlling the populace. I prefer critical diversity.
  6. Then should we not do everything in the correct order - trigger A50 and then start discussing all elements of seperation (including citizens rights). That is the process that the EU is following and so should we.
  7. As I said earlier, trigger A50 with this unnecessary amendment and let the UK citizens in the EU know that it is the decision of the Lords and their supporters. As for delay, one week! Once triggered we would have been discussing such matters, no more uncertainty. What do we have now, more uncertainty and delay! And your assumption about how I feel about the EU - maybe it is more about my concerns for friends who are working overseas.
  8. If it got to such a level of shenanigans (there is no other word for it) then hopefully Europe would chuck us out of the 'club'.
  9. And that would have happened if it was reciprocal - but as you stated, Europe can not discuss such things until A50 is triggered - so why should we? It is called common sense.
  10. What is wrong with us not addressing the issue until A50 is triggered? Why the obsession with giving up any chance of our citizens getting fair treatment? I stand by my comment - the HOL are shafting UK citizens in the EU.
  11. Face facts, they are saying A50 can now be triggered with the rights of EU citizens in the UK guaranteed - what about the rights of UK citizens in the EU? They will be shafted.
  12. Wow, love the second from last para. So, I pick you up on a rather naff comment about how 'non-lords' folk are plebs and you fire off a bit of a decent response but then revert to mean at the end - yawn.
  13. Take the above and the comment you were replying to. You mask it with Sir Fred of the Dustcart Depot, but basically you are saying people from outside the political system.
  14. Unless you are part of the political system you are incapable of understanding complicated things - sounds like something a fool would say.
  15. There are plenty of people within society who understand complicated things.
  16. I would trigger A50 with the amendment and point out that it is useless even trying to negotiate the rights of our citizens abroad because the House of Lords has just shafted the lot of them.
  17. The Chinese culture of the male/his parents being expected to sort out the marital home - absolute madness in modern Chinese society.
  18. What annoys me about the Shropshire lot is that they are Nodam's rather than Nimby's. The grabbing of allotments and green spaces within built-up areas is conveniently labelled as 'brownfield development'.
  19. Totally agree with you - the big issue for humanity is a sustainable population. My problem with CC taxation is that it means nothing if the people enforcing it and lecturing to us avoid talking about such an important part of the picture.
  20. Our equipment upgrade is needed but not straight away so I decided to boost the dividend. I have a feeling the governments tax take next January will be dire.
  21. I also held back on investing in new equipment so that I could take as big a dividend as possible :-)
  22. BBC raving on about the best January surplus in almost two decades - the usual talk of having a bit more money to spend gets a mention. Any good journalist would look into why the January surplus has been so good - well it is because of the change in dividend taxation. Lots of company directors have maximised dividends by pushing payments into the previous tax year and by drawing upon tangible assets. As a result next January's surplus will be much lower. At least article 50 will be triggered by then so they can blame it on that!
  23. Are we back to global warming? You are correct, it is now global warming again as the pause has been removed, oh, hang on, the pause busting paper has been shown to be unfounded. Stick to population levels and resources - that's what most people are worried about, not green subsidies by the rich against the plebs. Global waste per person is sickening - I don't need convincing through tax and sexed up unscrutinised brass eye news.
