  1. My own take is that the politicos thought that with statehood they could set their own financial agenda and cash in. All well and good but they also added layers and layers of overgraded (and thus over-paid and over-pensioned CS/PS) to support the statehood delusion. While the VAT scam was supporting it all they got away with it. But once they were well and truly rumbled they should have cut their cloth accordingly. They didn't, probably fearing being chucked off the gravy train by disgruntled and redundant CS/PS, so now the white elephants are coming home to roost....
  2. Don't forget that we are discussing a collection of self-serving hypocrites who made the disabled pay for their parking whilst retaining free parking for themselves. That should tell you all you need to know about the "quality" of those involved.....
  3. I think you are actually Nigel Farage. You certainly sound like him....
  4. I disagree. It's very obvious that the financial outcome of Brexit did not motivate those who voted Leave. It was essentially an irrelevance because even now it's pretty much impossible to figure out what the outcome will be. No, they voted to keep out Johnny Foreigner which I personally think is absolutely shameful. The other nonsenses peddled by Farage, Gove and Johnson like sovereignty and so forth are total bollox. If we want to trade with the EU we will have to obey their T&C's with the added problem of no longer being able to challenge them from within. As to controlling our borders the UK can't even come up with a decent plan for for the Irish N & S crossings. Just 18 months to go....
  5. As yet nobody knows how it will pan out. Especially David "Fall Guy" Davis. One thing I do know is that Boris Johnson clearly wants the top job and May is too weak really to control his nonsense. He even had the neck to spout off his "£350 mill to the NHS" bollox again just to stir it up. Personally I think we should expect a better standard of behaviour from our politicians and that includes the Foreign Secretary FFS!
  6. The US could make NK glow in the dark. However I suspect the Chinese wouldn't like that very much....
  7. So the below is one of your "calm responses" then. Spare the insults please. It doesn't have to be a playground....
  8. You think EU management, efficiency and probity is fantastic? Because I've certainly never posted that up. Now more on Black Wednesday please...
  9. So the billions it cost in 1992 (yep, 25 years and 3 days ago) propping up the pound was money well wasted then? Don't think so. George Soros alone trousered over a £billion. And in my experience UK management have a world-wide reputation for being useless...
  10. Or you could port across the New Zealand model. Oh, wait a minute.....
  11. So your solution is to reduce CS/PS pensions by 50%? Whilst I admire your solution to the issue I think that affordability is the key stumbling block here, .The Prospect PDF on so-called pension myth's is very illuminating as to just how close-minded they are. But then, I guess they can only justify their position by posting up complete and utter bollox....
  12. Actually it's known as fiscal suicide. I've posted up the solution. All it needs is the will to do the right thing for the common good. Yeah, dream on.....
  13. Reduced by up to 18% actually. If you don't like it vote with your feet. Win / win
  14. It wouldn't be a disaster if it was done professionally. A Lean Six Sigma team would go through IOMG and "rightsize" the lot at the same time ensuring that neccessary services were efficiently delivered and unneccessary services and outputs simply ceased to exist. For example it would ask pertinent questions like "Why has an island of 80k people got a Chief Constable on circa £150k pa?" and "Why has an island of 80k people got a Chief Fire Officer on circa £150k pa?" plus "And they both have Deputies!" and so forth when the manpower and budgets involved simply can't justify it. Delusions of statehood would be my guess....
  15. Is the pen mightier than the sword? Looks to me that the NYT is simply pushing back on President Chump the only way it can. However being one myself I often wonder why liberals are so often viewed as "weak" particularly by greedy, self-centred zealots. That opinion piece spells out quite nicely how there is a lot of strength in moderation to make things happen and get things done. Nice one Mr C.
