  1. Agree - priority should be for people who work and pay tax not someone who has no job 5 kids or comes here illegally on a dinghy
  2. Personally i do not care. It is not a big deal to me. If I am asked to wear a mask I will it does not bother me either way.
  3. Personally I did not. I sold a business that paid for our house. My first house was on a mortgage 4 x salary. That said if others want to buy a house and pay on a mortgage that is their choice. Equally of others prefer to rent that is also their choice.
  4. Hi SJL - I always enjoy our discussions. I would argue that if a person is in debt they may decide to get a new job that pays more money. Most people who start a business will take a loan - I had to the first time - most who buy a house will get a mortgage unless they are very wealthy or very lucky. You say we have a debt based system without a loan most people would never be able to buy a house or start a business. I cannot understand people who have massive credit card debt to finance a holiday a wedding or clothes for instance but that is a personal choice which is part of being in a liberal society where people are free to make their own albeit I would not do that myself I hasten to add.
  5. Sorry for spelling writing at work did not have time to check! More haste less speed!
  6. Agree totally According to The Sunday Times Rich List of 2018, out of the richest 1000 entrepreneurs living in the UK, a whopping 94% of them were self-made. I ersonnaly went to schoo, witha good buddy whose family lived ina 3 bed semi - dad was manager of a hotel m um a housewife. He started business in Australia sold it to a Japanese company for 30M has not changed him - still lives in the same house - he still comes to the uk has a few beers watches West Ham ( odd I agree)
  7. Yes I would be delighted in the price of a pint of London Pride halved along with the sorts events i go to
  8. Agreed If a person is in a job they hate they can leave and get another job.I do not know anyone who actually hates their job personally. They seem to get job satisfaction and enjoy the company and banter with colleagues. For sure most people I know would rather have enough money not to work but needs must, food is not free.
  9. The DM outed Saracens rugby clubs cheating for a decade good investigative journalism. Others may argue that the Mirror and Guardian are just left wing propaganda I assume.
  10. And may have bought after prices fell in 2008 and made them affordable rather than wait thinking they would fall further
  11. Clearly - most people's definition of family money would not be 5% of a SO flat
  12. Sadly in some cases that is true - not all of course I know a guy who is renting - wants to by they they do not have the deposit Wife wanted a dog so they spent 3k on a pedigree rather than go to a dogs home and get a nice mongrel The pedigree has cost them £500 in vets fees for a stomach complaint not covered by insurance because it was within the first month of the policy
  13. Agree I do not get why anyone goes to a coffee shop and pay £2 plus for a cup of bleeding coffee Ignore it some folk want to be offended by everything
  14. If council s have bought them they will sell when they are converted to housing
  15. You have a slightly different experience to mine then. I was not around during WW2 but I know I am a zillion times luckier than those who were. I did not have to experience bombs, the blitz, being in the army, navy or RAF to know it was a much harder time than anyone has now. Sorry but I am sick of snowflakes whinging all the time when they do not get everything they want in their little lives.
  16. Yep - nearly as bad as being bomber or having to fight in a world war or go through the great depression To scousers everything is everyone else's fault - the city of pity. Repeat in a high pitched whiny accent- "scousers afre speeeecial peeeople" Yes what people have today is a million times better than living through a world war. Now people have a melt dow3n of their mobile is lost or not working. Because she owns a property innit - awful person.
  17. Yes irrespective of this case - there is a huge amount of envy ion the UK for anyone who earns a good living
  18. Extraordinary conspiracy theory Can you show me the article;e that says this please? I have friends who come from Asia where they would have had a much worse life than they do in the UK
  19. Or that they do not have skills that are required in the very competitive job market.
