  1. I’m on the side of the lowly worker, as ever. This place has underpaid staff for years, getting away with it by taking on foreign second jobbers needing a good name on CV who leave after a year. Only now they’ve downgraded to first jobbers, and no one wants the work because they can get more wonga elsewhere. Serves them right. In broader terms I think it’s good as it will hopefully feed into inflation stats and cause earlier monetary policy tightening. What do you reckon winkie?
  2. I’m still a c0ck though, you can’t take that away from me.
  3. So? I still don’t care about a fire in 1974, why do you?
  4. The centre cannot hold me. I haven't had a n00b try to insult me in a while lollll. Bless your extremely branded instagrammable polyester foot coverings. PS It's got a 3D vanity plate hasn't it
  5. LMAOoo what cowwer is your very speshal Wange Wover? Is it black? Do you have a big yellow wheel lock or a big red wheel lock to stop it getting nicked? And of all the meats you went with roast beef *wipes tears of joy*
  6. Very sad. Very weird that some of the people fleeing will refuse to believe in climate change.
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/aug/31/pfas-toxic-forever-chemicals-air-breathing Toxic ‘forever chemicals’ contaminate indoor air at worrying levels, study finds Food and water were thought to be the main ways humans are exposed to PFAS, but study points to risk of breathing them in Toxic PFAS compounds are contaminating the air inside homes, classrooms and stores at alarming levels, a new study has found. Researchers with the University of Rhode Island and Green Science Policy Institute tested indoor air at 20 sites and detected the “forever chemicals” in 17 locations. The airborne compounds are thought to break off of PFAS-treated products such as carpeting and clothing and attach to dust or freely float through the indoor environment.
  8. This is what will happen when sea levels drown large parts of Bangladesh, among other places. Not a walkway, but as good as a bridge for anyone who wants to be here. We don’t have the will to turn people away, or ram boats etc. I’d expect prices in white flight places to rise hugely, and modest rises in areas with large foreign populations as they are joined by all their cousins. But I think we’d be more concerned with food tbh.
  9. If we all wrote and asked https://www.parliament.uk/get-involved/contact-an-mp-or-lord/contact-your-mp/
  10. Mate, twitter search “overpopulation + racist + space” and check out the smug western lecturers spouting their abundant wisdom that if people like Sir David Attenborough were’t so stupid they would realise that: It’s rich people’s fault! (so keep doing what you want because there’s someone else to blame) There’s enough resources for all if only we can completely change every system of governance and economics (but that won’t happen so keep doing what you want) Birthing 22 children from age 11 is just what poor uneducated women want, right? Giving them options is RACIST AND COLONIALIST. (This comes back to the theory that woke people hate women just as much as the right wingers they detest) If you divide a landmass by population everyone can have 22 square miles! See, plenty of room but KeyboardWarri0r13 doesn’t have to worry about who gets the Sahara desert allocation. These hypocrites won’t lift a finger to help anyone less fortunate, preferring to enlighten us poor benighted idiots via their social media pulpits.
  11. Because they have no choice. Every step of the way, more space away from other people signifies higher social status. People don’t aspire to live in a house share, they aspire to live in a large detached country house. The poorer you are the more you have to put up with other people.
  12. I wouldn’t be shocked to see 0.8 by end of 2021.
  13. It is perfectly feasible to operate with lower levels of migration. The long-term impact will probably be less severe than supporters or opponents of migration claim. But given the high proportion of fairly unappealing jobs – there is a reason why young graduates aren’t clamouring for a career in meat packing on the minimum wage – it will mean higher prices, driven by a combination of higher wages and investment in machines, or simply by lower levels of output. If we can’t staff abattoirs, we will import pork instead. https://amp.theguardian.com/politics/2021/aug/29/analysis-buckle-up-milkshake-droughts-are-just-the-start My bold because I’ve read that our seemingly endless cheap human labour has resulted in our factories mechanical resources being ignored, underfunded and forgotten when compared to high tech promotion in France and Germany among other competitors.
  14. Took 11 days for a courier to move some documents from Cornwall to Stockholm for me last month. Would have expected 3 previously.
  15. Presenting information does not equal endorsing the proposition contained within the information. AKA Likes and RTs ≠ endorsement
  16. Evening chums. Well, I've done my usual comparison (60% LVT remortgage for 5 year fix) and... Best on offer is 0.98% £999 fee OR 0.98% £995 (£250 cashback). THESE RATES JUST KEEP GETTING LOWER. Alas it won't help me as we've already made our application but for those of you watching and wondering which direction we are headed - for the most secure borrowers the line points down.
  17. The country isn’t full? Should it be full? Are people happier living in a tarmac concrete high rise world? Do we even need nature? Can we hook ourselves up to feed units and seal ourselves inside a pod? Very efficient. Maximum number of humans! Quantity over quality! Let me know how many places in the UK you a) don’t see litter b) don’t hear cars c) don’t see or hear planes d) don’t have light pollution My finger in the sky estimate of UK population is 73mil.
  18. Brilliant thread. Fascinating to see all the market connections.
