Re: Good bye and thanks

Was surprised how deeply I've been feeling this. He was an idol growing up. Bowie features in some way at every stage of my life. Sad sad day. Think I know what you mean, anaconda. As I said I was never a music fan of any kind but one had to be an anchorite of some kind not to have been influenced ...

Re: The future of Government (if any)

And a very happy and wealthy New Year to all our bankers: Banking culture inquiry shelved by regulator FCA The FCA had planned to look at whether pay, promotion or other incentives had contributed to scandals involving banks in the UK and abroad. Yes it wouldn't do to look too hard would it. We all...

Re: The future of Government (if any)

Hmmm.... being Jewish, I suspect Oliver Letwin knows a thing or two about racial discrimination. I wonder how that oily rag the Grauniad would have said if a black gentleman had been described as "oily"..... :wink: And of course, the Grauniad is spinning again, telling lies, and more concerned with...

Oliver Letwin blocked help for black youth after 1985 riots David Cameron’s chief policy adviser has apologised after he helped to ward off cabinet pleas for assistance for black unemployed youth following the 1985 inner-city riots with the argument that any help would only end up in the “disco and...

Re: Modern economics

Noam Chomsky covers a range of related themes - . He's clear and informative on the influence of banks and U.S/ European foreign policy which he sees as creating both a security and economic risk.

Re: The future of Government (if any)

What is the point? Where is the passion? Where is the ability to tell right from wrong, good from evil? The Dug has the right of it . Read and be inspired. Labour can only survive by returning to its moral roots. Perhaps, in time, they can save us from the wickedness that is coming from Westminster...

Re: The future of Government (if any)

How naive of me to think that George was doing some straight talking. That here was a real incentive. He giveth with one hand but taketh away considerably more with the other. What's worse is the damage is already done. Most people pay little attention to the details of politics. The budget was met ...

Re: The future of Government (if any)

I fear the Minimum Living Wage will pretty quickly be handed over to the landlords and the Energy companies. The prices demanded by the vendors of life's essentials are limited only by the amount of money in the pockets of the low-paid. So it goes, so it goes. . . LIVING WAGE FOUNDATION RESPONSE TO...

Hardly a huge leap of faith, nor a conspiracy given how polarised wealth has become. That didnt happen by accident. Was it the lizards again....?

Interesting how it appears that the Greeks want to restructure their debt whilst Germany seem to want to tell them how to run their economy.

Yes.....and your Google needs a service by the looks of it.

Re: Grexit?

It's reasonable given recent history not to trust large financial institutions, but here's a view on Greece from Chris Kanthan. Some of it may be familiar but it's difficult, as ever with issues such as these, to formulate a clear view, mainly due to the politics of power rather than anything financ...

Re: The future of Government (if any)

I wonder why tax evaders on the whole flock to the tories. If you don't believe in paying tax then why do it? If you don't believe in taxation or in collecting tax then why do it? All tories together.
