Re: Songs you'd prefer to NEVER hear again.

Yes, that's the one! There were others as well but I have no idea what they were, though I remember the music. It was just a fashion at the time and was supposed to galvanise children into moving and dancing, and thus to relax, loosen them up, make them happy and help remove any inhibitions..blabla...

Re: Theresa May to resign on the June 7th

Boris is going to be able to play a blinder, get the leadership and then execute this cunning plan: 1. Go in on the EU ultra hard, reopen the deal and take out the back stop or we go with no deal - objective, piss EU off 2. When EU say no tell them if we end up still being in after October we will ...

Re: Turncoat to resign on the June 7th

What do you do if you are a moderate Tory (which I'm not) If an MP, you'll not be able to stop a brexiteer candidate appearing in the last 2 of the election, and the party members will choose the brexiteer, who will purge all Remain power from the cabinet, starting with Spreadsheet Phil.

Re: Brexit all over?

This is just being so pedantic. Or as we like to call it, accurate. Maybe one day it will catch on, but I'm not holding my breath. On a completely unrelated note Boris Johnson lied and engaged in criminal conduct when he repeatedly claimed during the 2016 referendum on EU membership that the UK sen...

Re: Brexit all over?

Yes, quite. The previous government pledged to abide by the result of the 2016 referendum. Had the referendum created any obligation that would have been unnecessary. Moreover it is an obligation which could only be said to apply to the previous government, who promptly resigned. It is interesting ...

Re: Dividend zoning ("danger zones" etc) e.g. as previously explored by Luniversal

Well of course HYP is a higher risk strategy than buying trackers, whoever said it was not? Its implicit in the doctrine that 12-15 shares/sectors is enough diversification. I've never seen an advocate of HYP claim that it is riskier than a tracker. Critics, yes. Advocates, no. Do you have any exam...

Off the top of my head, Anita Bell 'You can ring my bell'. I had a summer job at a factory that had Radio 1 blaring out all day and I heard that song so many times, it makes me cringe!

Re: Songs you'd prefer to NEVER hear again.

I would go for vast majority of Christmas songs as the ones to be banned under my dictatorship. Some I can just about tolerate, but sorry, The McCartney one, Cliff Richard, Bing and Bowie, and a fair few of the others can all go to Room 101 as far as I am concerned. Also, some that are not on the pl...

But one of the biggest taxation scams has been promulgated because of the EU, and has enabled the likes of Ireland, Luxemburg and Netherlands to take much more than their fair share of company taxes.

The two stark facts which you gloss over are 1) that this is essentially a binary process. As I have said before we are either in the EU or out. Anything else puts us in a vassalage position UNLESS perhaps we could have set up a stronger EFTA joining with Norway etc etc. The problem here is that AI...

Re: May's departure

I do not go along with any of that. The main problem on the UK side has been getting agreement on what deal the HoC would accept, so it would have been just as impossible to get agreement in the months after June 2016, as it has been recently. At the Lancaster House speech, May made clear what type...
