  1. 2005 Toyota Hiace LWB for leisure and work. 2.5 D4D diesel engine which, like the whole vehicle is massively over-engineered and they just do not go wrong. Brilliant vans.
  2. I think you're exactly right: as long as they are able to buy them then they will, irrespective of the financial consequences for them and their family. I see no remedy other than very strict access to credit. I'm with you on driving well maintained older cars, it's great knowing I paid a couple of grand for something that will last me ten years plus.
  3. I've been to a car dealership today to sell him some oak frames and the owner (local gangster) must have two million quids worth of 2-3 year old ex PCP Audi's, mercs, range rovers, jags on the forecourt. The people looking at the cars weren't exactly wealthy looking so I asked him how they could afford them: "They can't. It's all on finance. Ive got families on benefits driving range rovers. F#cking idiots". It felt like the stripper scene from The Big Short. This will not end well.
  4. That's precisely why, because they have ZERO idea how to behave in public.
  5. All of which requires the credulity to buy the b#llocks they come out with. Or were you expecting them to just come out and say "I pi## all my money up the wall on cider, fags and scratch cards. Then I come here and they give me free food."? But, hey, you have a new statesman story so i bow before your great insight.
  6. All factors that apply to the other countries. So p#ss poor excuses......
  7. I doubt there are very many people in this country who genuinely require a food bank. Oats, potatoes, frozen vegetables, all dirt cheap. Too poor? Too bone idle to cook more like.
  8. Spot on. If ever there was a PM whose image was utterly divorced from reality then it's Thatcher.
  9. Conservatism didn't begin with Thatcher. Difficult concept to grasp maybe but true nonetheless.
  10. Our governing class have imported millions of people who either want us dead, will help those who do, or won't get their hands dirty but think we had it coming. That is all.
  11. Anybody can have ideas—the difficulty is to express them without squandering a quire of paper on an idea that ought to be reduced to one glittering paragraph.” –Mark Twain A lesson one on this thread needs badly......
  12. He's worth about 300 million and has a stunning Italian girlfriend. His life is awful apart from that though.....
  13. I'm self employed so I'd decided I'd be paying myself 100% again this year.
