  1. https://surplusenergyeconomics.wordpress.com/2017/10/27/111-a-spike-to-puncture-the-bubble/
  2. Here's some stats to help you. The increase in 'one person households' has certainly been a factor in the equation. https://visual.ons.gov.uk/uk-perspectives-2016-housing-and-home-ownership-in-the-uk/
  3. Not an issue in the drama. My son had this issue (he doesn't have a TV) A letter withdrawing the implied right of access sorted the matter. He hasn't had a visit from them since it was sent. A copy is below if anyone needs it -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TV Licensing Freepost 6689 Bristol BS1 3YJ To Whom it may concern I do not require a television licence, as I do not receive or record live television broadcasts or indeed even watch 'catch up TV'. Despite this, I have received approaches from your organization implying that I may be committing an offence. Your employees and agents acting on your behalf, may not call at my address. This letter provides you with prior written warning that such a visit will constitute trespass and harassment and that I am withdrawing the implied right of access to my property from your organisation. Neither may you telephone me and you are directed, under the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998, to remove my telephone number from your records. Please note that I am under no obligation to provide you with any of my details, including my name, and that since I am the legal occupier of the property I am entitled to withdraw your implied right of access. This fact was confirmed by the BBC in June 2009 in response to FOI request RFI20090807. This response states that "TV Licensing does not legally require the name of an individual to action such a request". Yours sincerely, The Legal Occupier.
  4. BBC4 did a drama recently, entirely in verse, following three men who sleep on the streets of Manchester in their vehicles, having lost all their economic and social power. Although fictional and in verse it was quite good (for the beeb) and covered some of the issues (but not the price of housing). Still on iPlayer for 3 weeks http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b097bkd1/men-who-sleep-in-cars?
  5. Yep, without a doubt. There is a storm coming at some stage. It's just a matter of when. Post Brexit would be my guess (but it is just that). The whole UK economy is just smoke and mirrors. https://surplusenergyeconomics.wordpress.com/2017/09/18/106-crisis-a-forum/ http://truepublica.org.uk/united-kingdom/the-uk-pensions-crisis-from-prophesy-to-reality/ https://www.opendemocracy.net/neweconomics/trade-empire-2-0-and-the-lies-we-tell-ourselves/
  6. In fact Dyson gets paid, by the taxpayer £1.6m, a year whilst holding his IHT free farm land. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/eu-farming-subsidies-billionaires-high-uk-rich-list-recipients-brexit-james-dyson-earl-rosebery-cap-a7815871.html
  7. Just buy farm land and call yourself a farmer (just like James Dyson) and leave it to your children. Farmland is totally IHT free, oh and you can claim massive subsidies as well once you own it.
  8. Monarch rescue flights 'to cost (taxpayer) £60m' http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-41477267 The good old private sector and 'light touch' regulation, no doubt their pension scheme is a tad short as well.
  9. Really? https://www.vice.com/en_uk/article/qbay7m/dyson-sucks-harder-than-electrolux
  10. And the reason why Dyson has been buying up all that farmland? Because he can pass his money on to his children free of Inheritance tax. That's right buy some land, nominally become a farmer and you can avoid another pesky tax (nor do you have to pay business rates on it like other businesses).
