  1. Cant see there is any case for changing the currents laws. What (non) problem is it addressing? If anything protests have gradually less frequent and more orderly over time
  2. This won't happen . Wes promised.
  3. Yes you creepy weirdo. Its for my missus when she works double shifts at the hospital and it takes too long / too late to drive home. Here's the link fill your boots https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/91143574#/
  4. Ha I always double check before posting. Made a similar kind of mistake in a work presentation once....
  5. This is the post (below) little lost lamby is bleating about - for which, apropos of nothing, he called me a quote "vile cunt" Make your own minds up
  6. Sky seem to think Starmer lured Johnson into a trap of getting him to formally deny in Parliament that he said "let the bodies pile high". If witnesses do come forward publicly lying to Parliament is a resigning matter. Who knows.
  7. I agree Labour aren't going to romp to victory because a snap election is triggered. But I do think Johnson's authority is starting to unravel. Most people have always known he was lazy, unprincipled and dishonest - but the Tories needed his ability to unite the party and 'get Brexit done'. Now it is, and his communication skills seem to be on the wane, who needs him?
  8. How about his holiday in Barbados paid for Carphone Warehouse? Also a public asset?
  9. Huge difference between declared donations going to a political party and hidden erm 'donations' going to personally benefit an elected politician
  10. You should do, otherwise transparency disappears. Politicians allowing somebody else to pay for their home redecoration, school fees, holidays etc is just as corrupt as a pile of £50 notes in a paper bag.
  11. The Wall Street Journal has been a hardline climate change denying mag for years since Murdoch's Newscorp - who also own Fox News bought it. The company's increasingly right wing drift is the main reason Murdoch's own son James left the company
  12. Anyhow an average of 1 foot is only under a low emissions scenario, which we are currently exceeding. Under a worst case scenario it could be as much as 8 feet.

    The rapid tests done in schools, airports etc are convenient and cheap but less accurate, especially when the swab is taken by untrained people. You really need to be forceful, which is uncomfortable, so there are a lot of false negatives but false positives are rare. They are a decent guide in conjunction with knowing if somebody has symptoms or not. The blood tests conducted at a lab are way more accurate.
  14. Tell the truth big boy. The mods didnt see anything wrong with my innocuous post - which they didn't delete, its still there. What they did do was delete your irrational response to it where you called me a vile cunt. And when I called you a self righteous prick in return you went off on one which was comical, and also got deleted. I'm not responding again, but please have another meltdown if you wish
  15. I'm here. All 6'2" of me. Not running and hiding, just not responding to pointless arguments and girly hissy fits.
  16. ..and covid. Probably on the stamp duty holiday too.
  17. That's it a nutshell. You aren't bright enough or knowledgeable enough to understand many of the the points made, so you assume they're wrong and that you're right. In reality you're just out of your depth.

    Stamp Duty

    I read a couple of years ago that the number of people commuting daily from York to London had increased ten fold in 20 years. From York! about 2 hours 15 on average - plus say 20 minutes from home to station each way and 20 minutes station to office. Five hours 40 commute, every day
  19. Why do you bang on about him being thick? There are only a couple of people here who are wrong time after time after time. You’re one of them. Since everybody apart from you knows that, pointing the finger at others really doesn’t help your situation

    Stamp Duty

    Which means everybody who buys after the introduction of the ‘affordability’ scheme had to pay more so is poorer than they would have otherwise been. People in the UK generally will pay the maximum if what they can afford for their housing, largely because the UK’s housing stock is so crap they will stretch themselves to get somewhere half decent. If you make the costs of buying lower then people will just aim a little bit higher, as does everybody else, which causes house price inflation. No one gains apart from the seller. You can even find prices drop back once incentivising schem

    Actually, to be pedantic, it's passed from humans to mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are hatched without the parasite. Its the process of sucking blood from humans which infects them. Its only after a human has infected them that they can pass it it to others.

    Yes if you are making some people pay the tax and not others. It was a stupid idea anyway because its been shown that all subsidising house purchase does is push up house prices - thereby still costing money but negating any benefit. Its exactly the reason Mortgage Interest Relief at Source was abolished in 1988. How come we keep making the same costly mistakes?
  23. He’s weird. Whatever he thinks I’m on the opposite side 😃
