Im not sure youll find many, on here, will cheer that shitebag on, these days.
Wasn't a 'gotcha' aimed at any posters on here in particular, just an observation.

FWIW I think Starmer would make a decent PM, but I'm not sure he has the personality to win an election. We will see.

Wow .. :( ... having abit of a resurgence atm(I'm told) witcher 3 is one of the best games ever made... get on warzone and add me 🤣🤣
Since Activision got taken over, it can only improve, the missus still plays it. Witcher 3 superb game, with a few mods added, my right arm is a bit knacked, so Warzone is out the question.

Not to bad that, the graphics cards get released too fast though and expensive as fook. I only want the pc for gaming tho so going to have spend a few grand on it.
I got it off the shelf from PC Specialist, been using them for years, case not for me though, turned off the neons, waste of power. Usually build my own spec, then submit to the forum in case I have made a boo, boo somewhere.

If they're a company director and taking £150k as income/salary they probably should get a better accountant.

It's something like 20% of the top 1% of earners (i.e. the 629k) are self employed or company owners, so 80% are salaried employers who probably aren't as flexible in what they can do
That's assuming they suddenly find their altruistic sides.

Piss poor economics though: the country borrows money so that they can give it away

Of course........... Who the bloody hell do you think they are giving it to?........... Same type of folk they handed it to during covid for bag of shit products.......... I can't remember the details but giving a shipping contract to a " friendly" company with no ships was without equal. This lot are unbelievable.

Everything they do seems to look like deliberate sabotaging of the country and political suicide. With us as victims. It makes no economic sense. It has no democratic mandate. If ever there was proof we are being governed by imposters trying to do us harm. Whats their end game.

Theres a lot to take in here. This links Truss to some forces which could tip us (our country) over into full control by corporations and oligarchs. Today's budget is a big step in that direction.
Everybody needs to be concerned, including traditional Tory voters, surely this must concern them?

On the face of it the first thing that springs to mind is asset stripping but their tory predecessors already did most of that................ So the only way to make them and their friends money is to keep borrowing, sucking it from the non wealthy and sharing it out between themselves until the game is up...... Sadly there are still many that think they are doing a good job so at lot worse could come before the straw that broke the camels back makes an appearance and it might be some time coming

There's another wild theory Pete... They will make things that bad that no opposition will ever want to pick up the pieces and therefore formulate nothing of note in order to just keep their comfy positions ... And lets be honest, Starmer is doing a fine impression of doing just that... What's your theory?

So, Kwarteng has just said this on the 6pm news....
Do you accept we are in a recession?
'we are technically in a recession, ...but I don't accept we are actually in a recession...talk of a recession is a bit shallow.'
(Even though the Bank of England has just told him we are.)
