  1. I assume you mean universal basic income. The economic arguments against this dont stack up. There are moral arguments against creating a something for nothing culture but as that culture seems to be all pervasive in the upper echelons of our society once again the arguament collapses. Sadly results from the experimental scheme in Finland were not encouraging. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.helsinki.fi/en/news/nordic-welfare-news/heikki-hiilamo-disappointing-results-from-the-finnish-basic-income-experiment&ved=2ahUKEwji9ezDyMLqAhVJVsAKHQ1mD3MQFjAAegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw0J_X-3ML9MQiNlrCLj3TLG

    Brexit

    Actually they would ultimately like to find a mechanism to simply dissolve the inconvenience of the Scottish Parliament like they did wit Brown's free TV licence for the over 75s scheme. They have already brought foreign aid under the direction of The Foreign Office and declared economic sanctions against countries we dont like in the name of human rights. We ate also going to gave our own UK satellite navigation system and set our own terms fir trade deals around the world. The delusional megalomania knows no bounds.

    Brexit

    Just a quick update. The latest post Brexut EU trade deal talks have just broken up. Still no movement on the position as it stood in January.apparently the EU are being unreasonable.
  4. And folk on minimum wages voted for it so they could listen to Land of Hope and Glory and wave union flags more often. The real reason for wanting out the EU was so a bunch of rich Tory f**kwits could enrich themselves at the expense of everybody else.
  5. I'm not sure if that will be included with this years season ticket or do you have to pay extra.
  6. Here's a thing. I suspect the UK economy was heading into a bit of a stall if not a recession at the start of the year which was simply a failure to recover at all from the 2008 US mortgage mis-selling crash. All the interest rate cuts in the world had simply failed to kick start the flat economy of the UK. Now many companies will be able to blame coronavirus for the cutbacks they were planning to make anyway. And the virus itself will add another huge drag on an already faltering economy. Once you add in the traincrash of leaving the EU while manged by an Eton educated s**tforbrains it's gonna be good not to need employment to support yourself.
  7. The very man I was thinking of.
  8. There has to be decent chance that could not happen till the end of the season. It depends if your friend is willing to take that chance. 2nd prize is he can get the rest of the games on delayed transmission ...... I think.
  9. I too am an auld git and I have had a similar experience. Up until Ticketco took over I just contacted the shop and they sorted out everything. Then Ticketco took over and nobody at the shop or connected with the club seemed to be able to help me with ticketing issues. I think this is an issue the club need to be aware of to avoid losing the small amount of income we have. They really need somebody in the shop who can deal with season ticket / matchday ticket issues. They need to remember the auld gits. P.S. I finally managed to get things sorted out through persistence beyond the point of stupidity so don't give up.

    I maybe would not go as far as scot-free. Do you think I am going to get a promotion fir telling a customer they are wasting their money? We charge the customer more to fix it. Its capitalism at its finest. We leave the meeja to blame the government.

    I really cant get my head around the fact that you are shocked that private enterprise is driven by profit. The instant you put out elderly care to the private sector its all about profit. It has always been about profit. This crisis has just made that uncomfortable fact hard to hide. My question is whose fault is it that it is all about profit? How can it be the fault of bodies whose very purpose us to make profit making a profit. Bodies, the success of which is judged on how much profit they make. In my own job if someone comes up with a brilluant way to meet our customers needs and somebody else comes up with something we can charge the customer a fortune for who gets the promotion?

    I agree to deal with the issue you need the engagement if the person with the problem. Care homes were explicitly told by government that covid 19 presented a low risk. They could have thought, as some clearly did, how can the know and been more cautious. Or they could have simply taken the government advice at face value which others did.

    And if the government were to legalise 6 types of narcotic tomorrow and there was a huge upsurge in drug related deaths that would be all the fault of drug addicts? My point us that blame is never easy to assign to a single agency. There are often multiple complex interdeoendant reasons for fatalities. The best course is to look to yourself and ask what part you played rather than spraying out blame every whitch way. And by the way are you 100% certain alcohol dependency is simply a character weakness and there are no other factors?

    PM BoJo

    Do you blame the government, the people who sell it or the alcoholic themself. Even although they may have no actual control of their own actions?

    PM BoJo

    By your logic yes. Even although I do not work on anything directly or indirectly in any supply chain to Saudi.

    That is not what I said. I said the government chose a model to deliver services. Undesirable consequences of a pandemic can be traced to the nature of that model. Is it right to then criticise the people who deliver those services?

    PM BoJo

    How much ground for complaint have you if you leave temptation in an alcoholics way?
  18. gdevoy

    PM BoJo

    My point us you were blaming the care homes in an unqualified way. The moral responsibility lies with government. If you left a bottle of whisky open and a wean got drunk, would you say it was the weans fault for not reading the instructions about sensible drinking?

    I could take this so many interesting places like the real problem is "why exactly does he want a bigger dick in the first place?" IMO Brexit is part of the same issue. Wirking in the defence industry I am a bit too close to the issue. My only thought is you are spending all this money and all you are going to get is disappointed. PS dussapointnent is going to be the only outcome of Brexit too.

    I see several cabinet ministers in the meeja doing a "what Boris meant to say". Naw he didnae. I heard him say it was all the fault of greedy care homes.

    PM BoJo

    I think that's a bit emotive. It comes back to UK government policy to fund a National Health Service but contract elderly care to the private sector. Once you press the private sector button you are immediately talking about the lowest bidder. In the case of the defence industry where the UK government do try to exercise some oversight on quality they are constantly getting it in the neck about overspends. In the case of care homes is all about free market capitalism which never works well. Just look at the clusterf**k the US is.

    PM BoJo

    You accept that technically, like yourself, what he says is factually correct. Some homes took people they were unable to cope with. Then you look at who is saying it and you realise how much of a divertiomary tactic it Is to draw attention to that aspect of a huge clusterf**k.
  23. As Shropshire says a helluva mess and guess who caused it?

    That is a statement based on no actual evidence. It may be true that the Government has been caught out because they decided to save money on pudent virus control measures but we actually grossly underspend on what is needed to keep up with the Russians, the Chineese and mist importantly the Americans. This pulling out of the EU Galeleo satellite navigation system and pretending we can go it alone is another piece of nonsense and another wheeze for BoJo to piss billions if pound into his chums pockets.
