    The budget

    Working costs money. Travel to work, clothing for work, employees NI, simple expenses like that. I think it's fair to deduct the cost of working from someone's financial needs when retired - but I agree that £184 per week is still a chunk below minimum wage * 35. People, all people, should be backfilling the state safety net with private saving / pensions - but TBH the UK pensions industry is so expensive / inefficient that it's very difficult to commend it to anyone.

    The budget

    Along with since-forever-ongoing rates reform (to include agricultural rates, presumably?) for the same reasons...

    UK Petition: Ban all ISIS members returning to UK

    Sorry to disappoint but I’m male and whilst I have no idea who PK actually is I am pretty sure he/she isn’t any of the four aunties and uncles I have had. Still haven’t the foggiest what any of those posts have to do with me or to do with the actual topic of the thread.

    UK Petition: Ban all ISIS members returning to UK

    I think stripping a person of citizenship sets a very dangerous precedent...that could be applied in all kinds of bad ways in the future for all kinds of political based/biased decisions. Needs to be thought through properly. She was a kid when she left and still is a kid in all too many ways. She should be dealt with by the UK courts on the actual evidence against her.
  8. If enough MP's join the grouping then they could hold the balance of power over The Maybot's "strong and stable" administration. Could be good for a laugh. This complete and utter clusterfuck is brought to you courtesy of all those who voted to get shot of Johnny Foreigner.....
  9. Thanks. This is going to run and run.

    So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    "We are honour bound to put our constituents’ and country’s interests first." 5/7 of the former labour mp's areas voted leave...... soubry's area also did..... it should read.... "We are bound to ignore our constituents’ and country’s interests first."

    She added: "Another option I might try with my family is my husband is from Holland and he has family in Holland. "Maybe I can ask for citizenship in Holland. If he gets sent back to prison in Holland I can just wait for him while he is in prison." https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-47301623

    UK Petition: Ban all ISIS members returning to UK

    Back on topic. I see she is now saying she might try for Dutch citizenship. I'm no expert of Dutch immigration law but my reading of this - https://ind.nl/en/dutch-citizenship/pages/option.aspx - is that she needs to have lived continuously for the last 15 years in Holland or the EU. Oh dear, guess that rules that one out.

    The budget

    The 2019 Budget: This is the year that the Landowners' grants are to be reviewed. Don't do anything that would upset the plebs. Throw them some crumbs. Then the truly rich can continue to receive huge sums of government money for owning land. Watch 'This Space
