  • Commented on Oh dear
    & also guthrie back @ # 65 ... Can I/we have more details about the goings-on in Kansas, please? Reputable news sources preferred. Also, I just saw THIS ... I 'd be fascinated to see/hear other people's takes on...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    Incidentally, incase anyone thinks I'm tto lenient on "all" tories, I came across THIS However, after a lot of publicity, it would seem that even Richard Benyon has backed down over the nice little proposal to make himself loadsamoney at...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    there is only so large an unproductive middle class a country can support. Utter, total twaddle. How "unproductive" is the so-called "middle" claas then? All the teachers, doctors & engineers are in that group, just for a start. Thus neither...
  • Commented on Leading question
    See my post @#72 in the next thread [ the one titled "oh Dear" ] I also think we are heading towards a fundamentally different system, but not "landed gentry" as in 17-18thC, but medieval with feudatory duties to the...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    Can I correct that to ... "unfortunately, a very vocal (thacherite) group within the tory party (& who really are bastards) still do believe in trickle-down economics" ?? I was not aware of the Kansas experiment, perhaps it will act...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    DOUBLEPLUSGOOD. Seriously, your noticing that our tax structures are fucked is something most people don't realise. Someone I know very well tells me that when she started work in Tax (approx 1977) the statutes & guidance were two fairly thick...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    Nile - I usually agree with you but: Cameron and the wider Conservative movement are actively pursuing the deflationary policy of Austerity - a deliberate economic contraction - and working to acccelerate the concentration of wealth. Are you really sure...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    Try HERE Oh SHIT! Really modern-Stalinist monstrosity isn't it? I see what you mean about the Cybermen-type "thing" on the roof ... Ukkkk...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    "Class distinctions" as in the "middle" class will have been subsumed into the "working" one? Remember I don't buy any of this "class" shite for personal reasons. Which reminds me, if you really want to see how bad things got...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    Reminds me ot the time, in the (really this time) "good old days of yore" when there really were student rag weeks (Can't do that now, because of "terrrsm" ... Soton Uni, realised that most Prison security is designed against...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    OK BEFORE I read any comments. I repeat. If Boy George's ( & Camoron's ) "economic policy" is such a disaster, & I also repeat that they have succeeded more through luck than judgement - & that they were expecting...
  • Commented on Leading question
    Hmmm .. equipment over the years huh? TRY THIS ... "Soldier's kit, 1066 - 2014 Yet, all of them (I think) contain the same three items .. A spoon, a bivvy tin & a knife (forks came later .....)...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    NOT ranting, please! Just very, very worried that this will come to pass ... not least because of bright-faced "optimists" like you - who remind me of the totally brain-fucked morons at "occupy" who were completely against "US corporations" -...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    Dirk - yes ... though you have omitted the distinct possibility of politicians being terminally stupid & not seeing the consequences, or dismisssing them as irrelevant (because they are stupid). I re-iterate my stance that the certainty that this proposed...
  • Commented on Leading question
    The Patrician response was "Bread and Circuses" and I think that will be the first tool reached for. Bit behind the times, aren't you? This started many years ago. What do you think all the TV soaps are for? Then...
  • Commented on Leading question
    Sorry Charlie, I thought the commetariat here was already awake enough to realise your response to my question about taxes requiring tax-paying workers to provide monies to keep the cycle going. I partly & only partly, disagree with It's just...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    Your very first sentence shows, unfortunately, that you still don't "get it" ... Oddly enough I think we have a large degree of agreement here - but I'll come to that later. Now then: I agree it's possible for this...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    Interesting But the propsed "cure" is worse than the "disease" ... So, SOME parents abuse & maltreat their children. As was always the case. To (hope to) prevent his "we" are going to spy on everyone, the whole time, &...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    guthrie THANK YOU I hope that readers will be able to see how dangerous a slippery slope this represents? The SNP guvmint is proposing to appoint a state-sponsored spy on evrey child & therefore every parent in the land. How...
  • Commented on Leading question
    SF reader @ #112 & sideways @ #115 ..... Healthcare & costs & taxes .... Scandinavian public services and US taxation Except US taxes are as high, or higher than in the UK - though lower than Scandinavia or France,...

    Philae HAS LANDED successfully on the comet ........
  • Commented on Leading question
    Scotland nearly went - and still might, in another couple of years when the promises/bribes are broken. But that vote only came close because Whitehall was horribly out of touch with the opinions on the street. I doubt they will...
  • Commented on Leading question
    "Lux-Leaks" And it tunrs out that Brit/Camoron suspicions about Jean-Claude Juncker may have been on the nail & he may, just possibly be a corrupt little crook on the take ... - we shall see. If that does prove to...
  • Commented on Leading question
    But that ... And the services will be worse, delivered by unaccountable private bodies at inflated prices paid for by tax revenue. also backfires & doesn't work. Indeed something like this is already happening with Serco/Atos getting public stick &...
  • Commented on Leading question
    It's obviously the day for it! ALSO off-topic, but another straw in the wind regarding "Green" energy & electrical storage, for when the wind doesn't blow (etc) ??...
  • Commented on Leading question
    Oh bum, make that Chesley BONESTALL .......
  • Commented on Leading question
    TOTALLY off-topic, but much more imprtant, perhaps: Chesley Baonestall would love this !! Meanwhile, keep following the feeds - touch/screw-down in a short while, we hope........
  • Commented on Leading question
    Nile @ # 71 & Charlie's previous comment: Yes, the revolution in the remains of the Civil service is a very dangerous precedent & Nile's scenario is possible, but, I suspect not probable, because sooner or later countervailing (social) forces...
  • Commented on Leading question
    AND your comment @ #66 as well ... Yes, bribery of police etc by everyone, not just, err, lets say "high-ups in S Yorkshire" shall we? Disagree strongly with thesis in 66. It amounts to "Everyone over 50 is a...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    Late reply ... CHarlie, I noticed that paper's report second-hand, elsewhere ... But - tie that to the ( also recent) reports of successful spinal nerve regeneration, & look at how that was done. The experimenters used constantly regenerating nasal...
