So it's loans to companies
taking on customers of failed companies.

That's the big companies getting
bailouts, because of the shoite
system.

more evidence the beloved free market capitalist system failing
a 5 yr old can work out that the gas industry doesnt need 80 providers selling the same product, obvious at least half of them are gambling running dodgy business model even during the good times
imagine 80 shops in a row selling a football shirt and millions prepared happy to buy in shop one the most expensive and the other 79 each cutting each others prices, surely  any half decent regulator must ask who is shop 80 managing to sell that shirt at that price

They don't worry about council tax.

It's headline income tax they
worry about.


Raise nhi by 10% to fund care, but
give money to NHS, and raise council
tax by 5% to allow councils to
fund care.

We havnt raised income tax...

Iirc 5% is allowed

If they want to go higher they
would need a vote...

Unless government raises its cap.

Can't imagine folk would vote to pay more
than the cap, but some councils
might have a brain freeze and
go for it.

Up until the early 2000a we were still exporting cheap natural gas to mainland Europe even though we knew that soon we would be running low, now we are buying natural gas from Norway and Russia for a lot more than we sold it for. Now that is Britain in a nutshell

"Sold off along with tons of food that was in storage, Tony said we don't need them anymore we are everybody's friend and London is the center  of the earth "

this is why the EU has a CAP even if it is inefficnet and uneconomic: food security

are drivers not worth 50 grand a year considering the service to society we provide?
By:
Giuseppe
When: 21 Sep 21 20:46
my point was, as long as you were in the CAP and the single market you didn't really need the storage

now with increased red tape and possibly opening up British farmers to unfair competition, the supply of food may become more tenuous
