  1. OK I'll make it plain..............I don't understand why anyone feels the need to accumulate wealth of any description just for the sake of it. (wealth is not used to imply cash, money, wonga, call it what you will)).............I suppose I'm talking about greed.............I do understand that it's possibly human nature and that we are all different but, I still don't understand the actual need for it..........therefore, I don't understand human nature...............then again, I don't understand the need for competition or constant fiscal growth, but that's another argument and I'm tired......... actually if it's human nature why aren't we all greedy ?.....just a sleepy thought.
  2. Definitely not implying or highlighting, 'arseholes', at all! I agree with you totally that they inhabit all walks of life. So, whatever walk of life folk inhabit I don't understand the need to make more and more and more money just for the sake of it. I would say I am a right wing socialist if you wish to label me . I already said I have no worries at all about people with more money than me, I am happy thank you but I still don't understand their need for it.
  3. Lost glasses?

    ...........string knickers?..................gosh
  4. ........I don't pretend to understand the motivation to keep making more and more money, way more than is necessary to maintain a reasonable standard of living..............I do however understand and have experienced that a lot of moneyed individuals do try and pay minimum wages, maximum hours and take advantage of their workforce at any opportunity just to achieve the above results............I am far from jealous, I have a very satisfactory standard of life but still wonder at humans having the need to individually have more and more and more.............naïve? maybe but happy if bemused..........
  5. New Rules

    ...............very, very sad. Used to be first stop for real news and discussion. Seems to be the current human attitude worldwide, to disrupt and wreck for some sort of perverted pleasure............ I have no answers to it, I have been alive for 70+ years and my living standard has improved year on year whilst there seems to be a total downward spiral of behaviour, care, love and a constant increase in greed and arrogance........... ......What an awful comment on the world we live in when sites like this are just getting corrupted, sadly not by a minority.......... Thanks to all those who care............
  6. Untrustorthy Civil Servants

    ..........eh what, did someone call?.....mumble, mumble..snore......
  7. Pop in for a cup of tea and a chat

    ........and there's still a jersey registered minivan in K Michael, for years..............
  8. LL thanks for that. Sounds quite devious but within the rather strange laws we have...................thanks again, I echo SOS's remarks but still not sure I could explain it to my questioner so I'll just show your post..lol
  9. .gets deeper and more devious all the time.....imo.........wonder if the truth will ever come out............
  10. ........sorry, beyond me, I don't think I'll ever understand.............
  11. ...sorry to dis-agree but I thought the place/manufacturer the plane was purchased from got the purchase price of the plane......?
  12. .....still don't see it, the island doesn't get the price of the jet or the vat................I see the transaction as no vat to pay or re-fund, therefore a nil transaction...............maybe £60 quid for the presence of the officer at the airport but even that is negated by the cost of opening the airport at that time..................
  13. ..........where does the addition to GDP come from?.............no VAT paid...........no cash changes hands..............or what am I missing........I really don't understand..............
  14. .....but.............how does it benefit the UK or the IOM/.........doesn't anyone know?..............
  15. ............a question I couldn't answer, if no VAT is paid then how does the system benefit the UK or the IOM ?............
