Again, along with the near miss (or hit, depending on your stance), another one of Gordie's genius ideas is blowing up the UK again. Paying out tax credits to EU nationals has drawn in 10% of East Europe workforce, paying them a huge salary to hand wash cars, etc etc. Forcing up costs for the low paid natives, putting them out of jobs etc etc. All down to that cretin Brown. Seriously, he's been out of power ~6 years and his 'great idea's' are still flying back to coup and dumping on the UK. There's a BBC article on Camerons attempt to winkle out of the benefit payments: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-eu-referendum-35118036 Its always interesting to read the highest rated comments on HYS articles -they tend to be a good indication of what the nation is thinking. A few years ago, 'UK out of EU' was a fringe opinion held by Colonels from Tunbridge Wells. Now it appears to be the UK mainstream opinion, both left + right. My opinion is they should scrap TCs ASAP. Introduce a contribution based welfare system like the rest of the EU.
I could have sworn that I read a headline this morning (on my phone) about a potential rate rise in June in the US (hopefully leading to a rate rise here soon after), but now I'm at my PC I can't find any reference to it at all. Did I dream this or can someone provide a link. Would be keen to know if it is likely true, or just one of those "ooh we might raise rates" statements that never happens (like the Bank of England are rather fond of)
