  1. I have faith in the Middle classes, the rich elite are mainly criminal robber barons, the poor are alcoholics and workshy, only the middle makes the world a better place.
  2. Brexit affected me today I was going to buy a gaming mouse on amazon for £65 but decided against as I think it is coming from Europe and I would have to pay duty https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07VQTP4MK/?coliid=I3LDEUY8JBH8LO&colid=2BGWEMEQGOR5A&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
  3. Nigel is one of those people who are life’s complainers I would say Blair has a lot more to do with it
  4. I wonder when the dust has settled and in about 10 years we can look at it logically if he thinks he made a mistake
  5. Yes, me I will have saved £10k in holiday money by the end of this year and thousands not being able to go out. My bank account is the highest it has ever been
  6. And property prices are much higher in this area, and who is paying all that rent?
  7. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-applies-to-join-huge-pacific-free-trade-area-cptpp Press release UK applies to join huge Pacific free trade area CPTPP The UK is formally applying to join one of the world’s largest free-trade areas, deepening trade ties with some of the fastest-growing markets in the world International Trade Secretary Liz Truss will speak to ministers in Japan and New Zealand on Monday morning (1 February 2021) to request to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), with formal negotiations set to start this year. The announcement comes as the UK today celebrates one year since leaving the EU and becoming an independent trading nation. Joining the CPTPP would deepen the UK’s access to fast-growing markets and major economies, including Mexico, Malaysia and Vietnam, for the benefit of UK business. Joining the £9 trillion partnership will cut tariffs for UK industries including food and drink, and cars, while also creating new opportunities for modern industries like tech and services, ultimately supporting and creating high-value jobs across the UK. Unlike EU membership, joining does not require the UK to cede control over our laws, borders, or money. UK trade with the group was worth £111 billion in 2019, growing by 8% a year since 2016. Benefits that CPTPP membership will bring for businesses include: Modern digital trade rules that allow data to flow freely between members, remove unnecessary barriers for businesses, and protect commercial source code and encryption. Eliminating tariffs quicker on UK exports including whisky (down from 165% to 0% in Malaysia) and cars (reducing to 0% in Canada by 2022, two years earlier than through the UK-Canada trade deal). Rules of Origin that allow content from any country within CPTPP to count as ‘originating’. For example, this would mean that cars made in the UK could use more Japanese-originating car parts, such as batteries. Easier travel for businesspeople between CPTPP countries, such as the potential for faster and cheaper visas. The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson said “One year after our departure from the EU we are forging new partnerships that will bring enormous economic benefits for the people of Britain. “Applying to be the first new country to join the CPTPP demonstrates our ambition to do business on the best terms with our friends and partners all over the world and be an enthusiastic champion of global free trade.”
  8. I have just spent £35.50 at Pizza hut, you are right if you multiply by 50 it does become a big number.
  9. We have Pizza-day on Sunday so I spend £25-40 every Sunday, sometimes Pizza hut or Papa Johns or Dominoes so that idea does appeal to me
  10. UPDATE: I have stopped going to that Chinese Take away place, the last two times the the person serving me was just so rude, I have been going there for over 20 years no problems and it has had maybe 4 owners in that time, It will just have to find another Chinese food place.
  11. True, I was speaking to a Human rights lawyer about 20 years ago that the policy of the UK Government was to import 100,000s of Somalians and give them free housing to increase the Value of housing, no interest that this would break the White working class, they were being housed in Central London. You cannot blame the Somalians it is the only leg that the economy had was houses, so they had to have a consistent slow price increase forever. HPI has been policy regardless of who is in power.
  12. I have never understood where this hatred of boomers comes from, the government is responsible for the problems not boomers
  13. What is keeping people down don’t blame king William, I know newcomers who came 50 years ago to England with nothing and now have assets of £400k and not one of them but entire bus garages of them you are your enemy blaming a French Norman from 1066 is not on, and the house of gluckstein I mean Windsor is very new

Changes will be made to both council and leaseholder-owned properties on the Noel Park estate in Wood Green. Some owners have received estimates saying they will have to pay about £100,000 for their share of the work, which they have called "unaffordable". Haringey Council said it had "a duty to maintain... the buildings".
  16. I am sad for Lucy and Tarquinius Superbus but happy that journalists have lost their shirt
