Re: EU referendum: stay or remain? Leave or stay?

Cornwall has received a lot of EU money. Dunno where you live, but if you read the stuff going on in Cornwall, no-one has seen any dosh that's made a difference. Cornwall is still a poor county with much unemployment and deprivation. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-33360841 https://en...

Re: EU referendum: stay or remain? Leave or stay?

Cornwall has received a lot of EU money. They have granted the Cornish minority status & my Tory MP wants to leave. Those are three very good reasons to stay in my book. So MickF you will have to hop over the border mate :wink: On a more serious note much of the money spent on conservation has c...

Re: Disability Benefits

Not your answer, but being disabled myself I don't not understand why I have to stand in the same line as drug addicts and alcoholics, it may be a disability, but it is self induced there has to be a difference. Disability isn't always obvious. Any of these people could have mental health issues, w...

Re: Shane Sutton suspended.

If it's true that he called paralympians 'gimps' & 'wobblies' as reported then good riddance as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Disability Benefits

I have a disabled relative. He will never be independent and will never work for a living. I want all the taxpayer money available for helping the disabled to go to people like him who really need it, not people who are only disabled by newer, dubious definitions invented by governments in the 80s ...

Re: Tax and income transparency

Nor have we seen his wife or children accounts of which there is no need to declare in members interests. He claims his wife owns a field worth £77,000 but the "field" is a 3% share in her fathers estate that is pushing for planning to build 1,000 homes. SamCams "field" could be ...

Re: Tax and income transparency

We currently have a head of the HMRC who used to work for the company that managed Ian Camerons offshore investments?
Some might say his insider knowledge will help him to do his job. But my belief is he will direct his investigators away from his friends.

Re: Tax and income transparency

What we have seen is a summary. How they get there is still smoke & mirrors IMHO. There was an excellent radio 4 broadcast about taxation in Norway where all citizens tax details are available online. Quite a few pluses. Less us & them, more gender pay equality etc. But this countries politi...

Re: Weird Tory ideas

Pushed through at close of business on Friday. Government quietly announces plan to privatise Land Registry on night before Easter holidays Watch developers snap up any land unclaimed. Obviously a chap who'd never been on benefits methinks. I know a chap who voted tory at the election because he was...

Re: Which Trangia?

If you cook a lot of food that can stick to the bottom then the non stick or anodised is good but the non stick will wear with use the anodised is a lot tougher apparently. (I've yet to test my anodised pans enough to comment). If you just want to boil water for drinks or boil in the bag meals then ...

Re: Changing your saddle - what do I need to know?

Be careful with the kitchen foil/chalk/cardboard etc. If you sit bolt upright, you are sitting on the back of your bum bones. If you lean forward on your saddle, your weight will be further forward on your bum bones, and they are closer together the further forward you go. If you can't feel your ow...
