Re: End of Pensioner "Perks"

Hi again, Bear in mind that when the State Pension was introduced the actuarial expectancy was that the recipient would live for about 2 and a half years, leave the stafts at 65, turn one's toes up before reaching 70 :shock: . TTFN MM

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hello all, Life in the old Brexit thread yet? I seem to recall examples of other countries that took measures to try and stop the fat cats get fatter when in power. One country weighed the leader on a regular basis to stop them living high on the hog! How many M.P.'s would survive that? But better s...

Re: TV licensing...

Hello there, Is someone saying that I'm demanding tax cuts? Not me! Maybe M.P.s should stop trying to claim everything going on expences money would be available for better use? But the BBC has a nerve claiming hardship, yet has lashed out mega dosh for things such as that "Eastenders" set...

Re: TV licensing...

Hello there, At a mere 70 I pay the blood money for the so called reality TV? Very little quality stuff, so value for money it is not! But what does annoy me greatly is the number of phishing scam e:mails I keep getting? Very official sounding, just like the HMRC ones, why can't those bloody parasit...

Re: End of Pensioner "Perks"

Hi There, I made the Government pay my pension into the bank on a weekly basis, makes less of a mess when I turn my toes up!
I would have had a long struggle if I wanted a pension book! Still possible. TTFN MM

Hi Georgew, So yet again the "Independent Scotland" cry goes up! But think on the next possibility, Independence for Orkney and Shetland? I seem to recall that they were not members of the "Nicola Sturgeon Fan Club"! Remember there are buy out clauses in their contract :roll: TTF...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hello Pete75, That was more than a bit naughty labelling "Al" as a "Tommy Robinson Fanboy"! Self moderation along with self modesty would be great additions to your life. I think if you don't address such issues then the "Mods" that parked me up should take a hard look ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hello again, I'll cite one E.U. horror of a measure - The stupid catalytic converter rubbish! At a time when the British motor industry was making great strides with lean burn technology, use less fuel therefore less exhaust pollution, the E.U. fell for the Johnson Matthey con job. Create very expen...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hi Cugel, So what you are saying is that we have to accept 99 awful Laws in the hope that the 100th one is good?
We have to suffer tons of E.U. crepe because you feel content that one nugget can be found amongst the tonnes of iron pyrites?
Hope over experience! IGICB MM

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hello again, Well I never labelled anyone over their voting choice, nor do I denigrate them for it. But sadly, predictably the tags get attached sad! One thing hasn't been pointed out about our electoral system is that since the start of the process it has always been accepted on all sides that the ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hi all, Amazing how anyone who wants to leave the E.U. is classed as either Extreme Right Wing or worse! Can't really why it should happen? With the extreme reluctance on the part of the E.U. to consider change & improvement leave is the only sensible choice. I see the E.U. in the same way that ...

Hello there, Well, the combination of NHS & PPI gives you what? Take the replacement Royal Hospital in Liverpool. Already long overdue, with no completion date in sight! Worse, the construction is quite shoddy, a real botch up. My insider told me that the foundations are not up to the correct sp...

Re: D-Day

Hello there, We have yet to actually reach the Centenary of the end of WW1! Men were still getting killed in 1919, with enough Liverpool Pals, amongst many who had to continue the fighting in Russia. The treaty to officially end the war wasn't signed until well into 1919. The thorny issue of the Ger...
