the trouble is that there are only 12 months

Even if there are insider dealings, a further investigation won't release them and the theorists will still not be happy.
It'll only be a waste of money.
Therefore I vote no
29  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: How do you compare politically to your siblings. on: March 22, 2008, 11:41:59 am


My sister is the same socially, but prbably even more liberal than I am economically, she is a mother of 2 so likes big government.

My brother is probably similar to me in my views

My dad however is much more conservative

Normally names in my school were by adding 'y' on the end,
my surname is Graham so that didn't really work,
so I didn't have one

Yes I got mine in my mid-teens, everytime I get them tested they are a little bit worse...funny that...having to buy expensive frames yet again.

I wear them for most things out of the house (except nights out, where i'm liable to smash them) but not for things inside the house (I squint to read TV guides on the TV)

I think Brown will wait until the scandals has been forgotten or a tory scandal emerges, but I can only see 1 victory at the next election (that sounds really odd, like 2 people could win)...unfortunately.
35  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do homosexuals make you upset/angry? on: March 19, 2008, 12:38:16 pm

Being a gay man,
some do and but most don't!
Similarly some heterosexuals make me angru/upset but most don't.

there are far more important things when deciding if I like a person or not, who they choose to love or be attracted to is least of them.

What tax cuts are the Tories proposing anyway?

I can answer this now.

By the looks of things in this weekends press - none.

I like the honesty of Cameron...it's such a shame he's a tory.
Maybe there is a prostitute in there somewhere!

42  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Budget Discussion. on: March 13, 2008, 09:35:52 am

I don't want to hijack the budget thread with a gay rights debate, but how can the tories be for equality? Last year, during the equality act only 29 tories voted for it, whilst a shockingly high 83(+2) voted against it! (on a 58% turnout)

My point about never voting tory, is that the poor nowadays are nuch better off than the poor of 1980s, well certainly in my family

I'd doubled tobacco rates,
I come in contact with a wide range of people in my job
It amazes me the amount of parents who are eligible for 'free school meals' that smoke,

It amazes me the high levels of income that still qualify for WTC.

A poster from PB.com highlighted this:

Single person, non smoker, non-driver no kids. Tax changes for 2008/09

6,000 12 worse off
9,000 127 worse off
12,000 67 worse off
15,000 7 worse off
36,000 297 better off


A lot of that includes last years 10% rate abolition. I was 110 worse off last year IIRC and this year I'm a further 25 down.

Ultimately, what's wrong with the picture is this;

9,000 127 worse off
36,000 297 better


Yes, that's terrible.
The poorest need the tax breaks BUT what would it be like under the Tories, I can remember, to my youth and having some desperate times as a child. That is why I'll always be anti-Tory. That and their attitudes towards gay rights.

47  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Fascist MP leaves Tories on: March 12, 2008, 04:46:47 pm

Rather the 2 of them split the conservative vote,
Labour don't stand a candidate
Liberals take it

Smiley

Not in this part of Essex they wouldn't. This is the sort of place where more people would be happy to vote BNP than LibDem. Perhaps a slight exaggeration. Perhaps.



Yuk! I'm glad I live in a labour heartland!
48  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Budget Discussion. on: March 12, 2008, 04:45:55 pm

As a household, according to the BBC calculator, which I know, assumes a lot, we'll be 300-400 better off because of the change in tax codes.
49  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Budget Discussion. on: March 12, 2008, 04:42:36 pm

I agree about the form filling part - I think the country would collapse if everybody got the benefits they could get (and probably not deserve).

The WFA is crazy, the only 'advantage' is that some pensioners may not save extra for the winter, but I don't think the government should 'think' for them all.
I can't believe my dad gets it, I thought he was joking, but alas no!

I'm not up on WTC to make comment on them, but I think we need to encourage people to manage their money- starting with me please!
